BookTube-A-Thon Reading Wrap Up!

Today is the last day of the BookTube-A-Thon and I am very happy to say I completed all of the books I planned on reading! BookTube-A-Thon was very fun and exciting and I really enjoyed participating in it this year and will without a doubt be participating next year! I won’t be going into full detail about what these books are about but if you are interested then check out my BookTube-A-Thon TBR 2016 post.

Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson – This was the first book I completed for challenge #1: Read a book with yellow on the cover. I really enjoy all of Morgan Matson’s books so it was fun reading this one! I am glad I chose to read this book first because it was a really easy read that set me in the mood for more reading! 4/5 stars.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling – It was so good diving back into the Harry Potter world! I flew through this book like always and loved every single second of it. I used this book for 3 challenges and they were challenge #2: Read a book after sunset, challenge #5: Read a book that is older than you, and challenge #6: Read and watch a book-to-movie adaptation. I also really loved reading the book and than rewatching the movie so that just made completing this book so much more fun! 5/5 stars.

Champion by Marie Lu – I read this book for challenge #3: Read a book you discovered through BookTube because I first heard about the Legend trilogy over BookTube. I really liked this book, but it was a bit slower than the first 2 books in the trilogy. I still flew through and overall I really enjoyed the series! 4/5 stars.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan – I completed this book for challenge #4: Read a book by one of your favourite authors. I absolutely loved re reading this book! It was easy and so much fun and it didn’t even feel like I’ve read it a couple million times… Anyways, of course I loved this book and I am so happy I decided to read it again! 4.5/stars.

Those are all the books I read during the BookTube-A-Thon! I would have chosen and read more but I went camping for the last 3 days so I decided to just read 4 books. Hope you liked it!

 

 

 

Reading Update!

Since it is BookTube-A-Thon I decided it would be a good time to do  a reading update! I am currently on page 276/369 in Champion by Marie Lu and while it is a bit slower than her first two books in this series I am still really enjoying it! Last night I finished Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling and it was so good being back in the Harry Potter world! Today I am planning on finishing up Champion and then starting my fourth and final book Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. The reason I am only planning on reading 4 books is because I will be camping from Friday-Sunday so I won’t have really any time to complete anymore books…oh well I am happy with what I have done so far and it has been fun!

Anyways I hope you enjoyed this little reading update and if you are participating in the BookTube-A-Thon then keep reading! 🙂

Reading Update!

Hey guys! Sorry I have been kind of off and on lately, I’ve been busy with Camp NaNoWriMo, other writing projects and of course, reading. Since I’ve been busy I decided to update you guys with a reading update!

So I finally completed Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead a few days ago, and it is the final book in the Vampire Academy series. I was really sad to finish it but it was such a great series and I am definitely glad I picked it up. Since I finished that series, I moved back to the Legend trilogy by Marie Lu which I started last month. At the moment I am about 270 pages into the second book, Prodigy and I am loving it so much! Very excited to finish it because its amazing, and so I can get onto my next book: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson! I have never read a Morgan Matson book but I have heard her books are amazing so I am ecstatic to finally be able to read one. After that I will be reading books I have picked out for the Booktube-A-Thon because I will be participating in that this year! I am actually working on creating my YouTube channel at the moment but I most likely will have my first video up tomorrow which will be my Booktube-A-Thon TBR so stay tuned for that! If you are curious, my channel is the same as my blog, mylifewithbooks and I really hope some of you check out my video when it goes up and hopefully you all will like it. I have been wanting to create a channel for a while now and I am finally just going for it so hopefully I will be decent at it!

Anyway that is all for this reading update and I will be back soon with another blog post!
