I didn’t do a TBR in May because I had disappointed myself the previous month by not achieving all of the TBR challenge prompts I was supposed to do. I didn’t do that in May either. I technically read books that applied to all the prompts but I didn’t read all of the books I had planned for the prompts. However, I still kind of wanted to do this post because I like talking about the books that I’m going to read. So I will do so below the cut. However, I want to emphasize that I don’t plan on reading all of these, but I know I will get to a fair few of them.
Hello friends! Inspiration has struck Kari and I again, so we are back once more with another edition of The Loyal Book-A-Thon! This time we took inspiration from everyone’s favourite time of year: back to school! (I will admit to a little bit of sarcasm there, especially in light of the current times but I digress!) Our next readathon will occur during the month of September and we really hope you’ll come along with us on this journey! 🙂
When I was little, I would play make believe, and every so often I would pretend to be royalty. I was always fascinated by the concept. However, I didn’t just pretend to be a princess. I also remember a time when my cousin, my little brother, and I pretended to be former Prime Ministers of Canada at the behest of my cousin who has always been interested in politics. In today’s Tag Tuesday, we are going to pretend that I am the ruler of books. You’ll find my answers below the cut.
My half birthday is on Wednesday so I thought we were about due for an update on the books I was planning on reading this year. I haven’t done as well with this as I was hoping to, but at least there are still another six months until my birthday to attempt to finish it all up.
This was a crazy reading month for me. I felt really slumpy back in March and then had to transition into working from home. I expected that I wouldn’t really get a lot of reading done this month despite participating in both the OWLs Magical Readathon and our Loyal Book-a-Thon. I figured I’d read those, and that would be about it. However, I ended up getting through a lot of books and finished off both readathons pretty early in the month. Working from home meant that I could listen to audiobooks while working, and it’s made me a lot more efficient reader. So I’m pretty proud of the fact that in April I read 34 books/novellas. You’ll find everything I read below the cut. 🙂
It’s that time of year again; time for the OWLs Magical Readathon. I have to admit that I’m pretty dang excited. I could use a distraction from everything that is going on right now. So I’m definitely excited to spend some time devouring some books and escaping from real life. It’s also an extra exciting month because Kari and I are hosting the inaugural Loyal Book-a-Thon: Quarantine Edition. Find out more here.
Hello, friends! Kari and I are starting a new regular readathon, which we are calling The Loyal Book-a-Thon. Every three-four month we will have a new theme, and our first theme is ‘The Quarantine Edition.’ Obviously, we were inspired by current events. Our intent is not to make light of the situation, but to have some fun despite everything that’s happening. Some people might have more time to read, so we thought it was good timing.
Before I got really into bookstagram and tags, I never knew there was such a thing as an A to Z challenge. I think it’s actually a pretty cool thing to do. I tried to do one last year, but I wasn’t super successful so I thought I would try again this year.
When I turned 27 at the end of 2018, I wrote a post featuring 27 books I wanted to read. That post can be found here. On my half-birthday, I did an update, which you can find here. This is my final update, because tomorrow I turn 28 and my 27th year has come to and end. So let’s see how I did. Which of the books that I hadn’t yet read at 27 and a half, have I now read? You’ll find out below the cut.
This week’s prompt is ‘A Story About Finding Something that Has Been Lost’. I hope it’s relatable to those who wear glasses.
The story is below the cut.
