Yep, no writing update for this week but I do have some reading to update you all on! Reading had been sadly on the back burner the last week, but now I am back and reading and it feels so, so good. I am straying from my TBR a bit and decided to pick up and re read P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han, the second book in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy. I am in a contemporary kick, as I always am, and just needed a light hearted read to end off this stressful week. I finished it yesterday and loved it as I always do. Re reading these books makes me super excited for the movie because if you didn’t know, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is being adapted into a movie!!! Lana Condor is playing Lara Jean and Noah Centineo from The Fosters is playing Peter K, and while I wasn’t 100% sure about these actors before, after seeing them act in other movies I am sold! I have been following the movie news on their social media and I just know that this is going to be a fantastic movie that I will absolutely adore, much like the book series. Next I plan on finishing City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare which I picked up for a re read but never got around to finishing…hopefully I can do that by the end of this coming week.
That is all for my reading update and I hope you enjoyed!
Sadly this week hasn’t been as eventful reading wise as July was, but good things come in time right? Anyways, at the moment I am reading City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare which is the fourth book in The Mortal Instruments series. A lot of people say that this is their least favourite book in the series, but I don’t mind it and am hoping that I fly through it and finish it by tomorrow. Once I finish this book, I plan on jumping into The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen which I am excited for because if you saw my July 2017 Wrap Up, I read Once and For All by Sarah Dessen and enjoyed it, so fingers crossed I enjoy this one too!
Writing…ah writing. I was so determined at the beginning of the month, and still am, but things have drastically changed. I am still in love with my idea, but I am not in the right place to write it right now…I am super busy and need to plan a lot more than what I initially did. I plan on outlining my book throughout August and then finally when I finish that, I will rewrite my book.
That is all for my reading/writing update and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Back to School Reads!
BookTubeAThon is officially over! And while I am very sad because it was such a fun, motivating ride…I am happy the week is over. I am really excited to keep reading though, and cannot wait to get more done! Anyways, here is what I got done on the last day of BookTubeAThon 2017:
I had set some high expectations for today, because my overall goal for the day was to read and finish 3 books. I know! Crazy! I wanted to read Anna and the French Kiss, Once and For All AND City of Fallen Angels but sadly (and obviously) I did not accomplish that. I did however, finish Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, and got a third of the way through Once and For All by Sarah Dessen. I enjoyed re reading Anna and the French Kiss as always, and enjoyed what I read so far of this new Sarah Dessen book! I am planning on finishing Once and For All tomorrow, as well as starting City of Fallen Angels which I am very excited for. BookTubeAThon has been fun and wild ride but now it has sadly come to an end which is good, because I can go to sleep at a decent time! Below is my daily overview, as well as my overall wrap up for the BookTubeAThon which I will go more into detail with it in my July wrap up!
DAY 7 OVERVIEW:
Books Completed: 1
Pages Read: 417 (337 of Anna and the French Kiss + 80 of Once and For All)
BOOKTUBEATHON WRAP UP:
Books Completed: 5
- Alex and Eliza by Melissa De La Cruz for the challenges read a book in one day
- The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh for the challenge read a hyped book
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephanie Perkins for the challenge read about a character that is very different from you
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater for the challenge read a book with a person on the cover
- Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins for the challenge read a book you bought because of the cover
So overall I completed 5 books and five challenges which I am very proud of! I hope you enjoyed following me along this week, and I will see you guys tomorrow with a new blog post.
I finally had a day where I could spend more time reading, and while I got less reading done than I would have liked, by now I have realized that is sometimes how it goes. Anyways, tomorrow is the last day of BookTubeAThon and while the thought makes me very sad because it was such a fun ride, I am also a tiny bit relieved to not feeling obligated to read so many books. I do enjoy reading all these books, but I could NOT read 7 books every week or I might go insane! Anyways, here is what I managed to read today:
As of today, I have officially read 4 books for the BookTubeAThon and have completed 4 challenges: read a book in one day, read a hyped book, read a book with a character that is very different from you and read a book with a person the cover. I have changed my TBR and challenge order slightly, but for the majority the books are the same! But anyways, today was the day I finished The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, a book that had been sitting on my shelf for a while now, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I really loved the dark, mystical vibe it gave off, and cannot wait to continue on with the rest of the series! Apart from The Raven Boys, I also started Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins and got 80 pages into that! I do plan on finishing it first thing tomorrow morning considering that I have to finish 3 whole books tomorrow, in order to complete all the challenges, so wish me luck…
DAY 6 OVERVIEW:
Books Completed: 1
Pages Read: 273 (193 of The Raven Boys and 80 of Anna and the French Kiss)
I hope you enjoyed this update and I will be back tomorrow with the final one for BookTubeAThon 2017!
Whooo! This update is actually going up on time for once.
Today was day 5 of the BookTubeAThon which is really sad because now there are only 2 days left. BookTubeAThon is such a fun event to participate in, but like they say, all good things must come to an end. Anyways, here is what I managed to get done today!
My goal for today was to finish The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater which I started last night, but ended up only reading a chapter or so. However, I did not achieve my goal of completing the other 400 or so pages of The Raven Boys today. I did read exactly 200 pages though, which means I have a little less than 200 pages left to go. I do planning on doing a good chunk of reading in the morning but I am determined to finish The Raven Boys tomorrow afternoon and start re reading Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins!
DAY 5 OVERVIEW:
Books Completed: 0
Pages Read: 200 (The Raven Boys)
That is all for my BookTubeAThon Day 5 Update, and I hope you enjoyed. Oh, and also, there will be no reading/writing update tomorrow just because I have been regularly updating you all on what I am currently reading, and also because I have not done any writing since Monday…But anyways, don’t forget to check out my last blog post: August 2017 TBR!
Yesterday and the day before, I was just SO tired that one, I barley got any reading done because I was working all day and by the time I got home at like 10pm, I passed out. Because of that, I decided to combine yesterday and today’s update so that I actually have something to update you on…
Anyways, on day 3 or Wednesday, I did manage to finish the last 88 pages of The Wrath of the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh and let me just say, it was SO amazing! I will go more in depth on my feelings in my July 2017 Wrap Up, but let me just say that I will be buying the second book as soon as possible. After finishing that, I also started The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, which is a re read, but I managed to complete 90 pages of that! I needed a short, contemporary to read during my busy schedule and it was definitely a good decision.
DAY 3 OVERVIEW:
Books Completed: 1
Pages Read: 178 (88 pages of The Wrath and the Dawn + 90 pages of The Perks of Being a Wallflower)
Yesterday was a decent reading day, but I am still about one book behind on my goal and I really need to pick the pace up. Luckily tomorrow (Friday) is my last day of work before the weekend, and I have a really long drive that I have to sit through so I will be reading from 5pm until I finish two books. Not only did I finish reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, which meant that I had to read 121 pages of it, but I also started Once and For All by Sarah Dessen and The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. Mind you, I did not get very far in either, but I mean, it is a start!
Day 4 OVERVIEW:
Books Completed: 1
Pages Read: 172 (121 of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, 34 of Once and For All and 17 of The Raven Boys)
Anyways, I apologize for not getting these two updates up on time but I hope you enjoyed them. Stay tuned for my regular blog post today, as well as my BookTubeAThon Day 5 Update!
Next week is BookTubeAThon, yet I have more books I want to finish reading this week than next week. At the moment, I currently reading “City of Glass” by Cassandra Clare, the third book in The Mortal Instruments series, and I forgot how amazing it is! It has been about two years since I re read this series, but I remember City of Glass being my favourite of the six, and I can see why. I am close to finishing it, I have just over one hundred pages left, and when I finish that I will be reading “Alex and Eliza” by Melissa De La Cruz. I am really excited for this book because it is a YA story about the love between Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler. I cannot wait to dive into it and see how much I like it! I even have a third book I want to finish by…well, tomorrow, and that is “Eliza and Her Monsters” by Francesca Zappia. I picked this book up yesterday because the synopsis was something I was definitely in the mood for, and now I am just dying to read it! I am hoping to start and finish it tomorrow so wish me luck.
Yesterday I took a break from writing which I really didn’t want to do but had to because I needed to organize some of my thoughts for it. I am at a total of 43,073 words and my goal is to get to 50,000 words by the end of July, which I think I can easily get to. I have a clear vision on where my story is going, it is just the end that was somewhat fuzzy and also whether or not I wanted to write another book to go along with it, or another two, or none at all. Now though, I know how my end will play out and a rough outline for what a sequel could look like, things are a little more organized. I do plan on writing today and tomorrow and the rest of next week and so on (thankfully), and I am looking forward to keep chugging along!
That is all for my reading and writing update and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: 2017 BookTubeAThon TBR!ED
