There was a point in this where I just wanted to stop. I wasn’t sure I would complete my goal. I wasn’t sure that I would even come close. Then I was stuck at finishing one category, and I didn’t know why. I love the books I just couldn’t get myself to read them, I suppose. Yet I did it. I completed all twelve prompts!Continue
Dust jacket off? Check. (I actually can’t read hard covers with their dust jackets, despite preferring the hard cover for their sturdiness.) Time to read a retelling of wonderland oh too soon.Continue
On to book 2 of the Article 5 Trilogy. What is the real name for this trilogy? I will have to look it up. Later: I looked it up and it is the Article 5 Trilogy. Almost like these naming conventions are based on the first book in the series. Onwards!Continue
The actual footage of me deciding which reviews to post today was deleted. Instead you will have to take my word for it that it was long and arduous. There were many tears and much debate. And finally (not really) I decided to post this and Breaking Point. (Really this was just a debate on either one or two reviews. I decided on two to spoil you. And then I decided to be dramatic about it).
I have had these “to be read” for a long time now. I was waiting to get the last book, and never got around to it. However, the books fall in with the OWL Readathon Listing (Divination – Future). That means both of them are going to be placed in this category and I might as well read them now. Here we go.Continue
Happy Monday Everyone!
I know that I traditionally blog on Wednesdays. Today is not a Wednesday. Today is a Monday. However, I felt a passion to write out something that I discovered just recently that has sparked my interest to read again.
As you may have known, I got into a book slump sometime in February. March was pretty slow for book reviews. I’ve been trying to get myself out of the slump to no avail and then I saw this readathon on Instagram (if you don’t follow me, do @themarlenamarie). It’s the OWL readathon.
Essentially it works with Harry Potter themes, using the O.W.L.s (Ordinary Wizarding Levels) as a prompt. More information here. I love Harry Potter and this readathon really sparked me to want to read more. As such I am going to attempt it to complete it. Not only that but I will be attempting to complete it now more than a week into the month, all while trying to read books I have never read before. (Spoiler IDK If I can).
Some of the books on this list you will notice are not in my preferred genre. That’s because they are my mother’s books. I told her about it and she recommended books. She may be attempting it as well.Continue
