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.
