The Reading Quest Week One Update

The Reading Quest Week One Update

So things in The Reading Quest are going a little slowly. (If you haven’t, check out my sign-up post for this challenge, and Aentee’s @Read At Midnight’s intro post!) Having to finish a book that I was not totally into before I could start my first book for this challenge didn’t help, but I think it’s going to go like gangbusters from here. I’ve already finished one book for this challenge and am working hard on two others. That’s right, two books….

The Reading Quest Read-A-Thon Sign Up

The Reading Quest Read-A-Thon Sign Up

Last summer I did the #ReadThemAllAThon, and it was so much fun, and now Aentee @ Read at Midnight is back with another killer read-a-thon, and I am so in. This one is based on video games (omg yes!) and has all kinds of ways to read, and paths to follow. Honestly, I’m still not set on my real path for this one. Not gonna lie, I planned out every path and there’s absolutely no chance that I’ll get to them…

A Court of Thorns and Roses Reread

A Court of Thorns and Roses Reread

I read A Court of Thorns and Roses back when it first came out. Then when I went to start the sequel, I realized I remembered approximately 0% of this book. Like, other than the characters names I was out. There was nothing in my head about this book, other than a vague “I liked it mostly” floating around. So I put it on hold at the library (I forced my copy on a friend, naturally) and waited. When finally it…

#ReadThemAllThon Update – I have BADGES Now!

So you know I’m working my way up to being the master of this read-a-thon, and I’m almost HALFWAY THERE! That’s right, folks, I have 4 WHOLE BADGES to my name. I’m so glad that Aentee (Read at Midnight) made this challenge. It’s just so GREAT! Here’s where I’m at so far.   My little Gastly has grown up so fast! As for the books I’ve read… For this one I read The Raven King and let me tell you I…

Book Review – A Criminal Magic

Book Review – A Criminal Magic

I picked up A Criminal Magic on a whim at work. The cover was pretty, and anything 20s basically is a guarantee that I’ll at least try and read it. It wasn’t until I was more than a hundred pages in that I looked on the back and saw V. E. Schwab’s name there, all nice and pretty, telling me that I should read this book. So, naturally, because V. E. Schwab is queen, I finished it. I wasn’t absolutely pulled…

The Raven King or The Book That Ruined Me

The Raven King or The Book That Ruined Me

I know I haven’t said much about the Raven Cycle books as I finished them, but that ends with The Raven King. I thought “Oh, just save them and do a mini review at the end of the month or something. You don’t want to ruin the series for the 4 other people in this world that haven’t read it.” This is not something I can do. So here’s a kind of review of all of them and mostly a…

#ReadThemAllAThon – Knocking out my TBR

#ReadThemAllAThon – Knocking out my TBR

I’m absolutely loving Aentee’s Pokemon kick! So when I saw that she was doing a readathon that’s Pokemon focused I started trying to figure out what exactly I would read for it. All the details can be found at Read At Midnight but here are the basics. There are eight badges and a book to read for each one. Each book and gym completed, review posted, earns you CP (combat points) for your chosen Pokemon. After certain point goals are reached, your Pokemon…
