2018 Biannual Bibliothon Day 3: Reading Update!

alejtr5u

Hmm, so didn’t get as much reading done as I hoped, however I did finish listening to Peter Pan! I had just over an hour left so I went for a walk and finished it off. Overall I really enjoyed it and would recommend listening to it in audiobook format! As it neared the end, I got really invested in the story and had a blast listening to it. I also finished The One by Kiera Cass which I am happy yet sad about, because these books just are so fluffy and make me feel all warm inside. There was only 70 pages left so I flew through the last few pages in like 30 minutes, however I did listen to 3 chapters in audiobook format because while I was walking around, I finished Peter Pan a bit earlier than expected so I gave it a shot and really, really liked it! Once I finished The One, I did not pick up another book on my TBR because before the readathon, I was reading On Writing by Stephen King, and since I only had about 100 pages left, I decided to pick it up and quickly finish it since I am currently on track with the readathon! It is day 3 and I have successfully read 3 books. Tomorrow, I think I am going to pick up All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, for the challenge of reading a book you don’t know much about. I was going to pick up The Book Thief, however it doesn’t fit with any of the challenge I have left…if I have time at the end of the readathon I will read it though, otherwise I will start it once the readathon is over!

2018 Biannual Bibliothon Day 2: Reading Update!

Happy day 2 of the Biannual Bibliothon!

alejtr5u

So…today wasn’t as great of a reading day compared to yesterday, which sucks because I really wanted to get a lot of reading done today so I wouldn’t have to rush this coming week! Oh well, I am sure I will be able to finish my TBR for the readathon by Friday if I really try and also prioritize my time…yeah, prioritizing my time will be essential. Anyways, I did manage to read up to page 253 in The One by Kiera Cass, which means I read 223 pages of it today so that is still pretty good! I have 70 pages left of it so I have no doubt I will be able to finish it tomorrow, but I am sad though because I really will miss the story. Anyways, I also listened to a bit of my Peter Pan by James M Barrie audiobook today. I wanted to go for a long walk today to get a few hours logged in, but I wasn’t really feeling it so I just listened to it whenever I was getting ready, cleaning or just felt like it. Currently, I am 4 hours and 7 mins into it which means I have 1 hour and 8 minutes left. Again, I will easily be able to finish that tomorrow. I do think I will come back to the story of Peter Pan again since I am enjoying it so much, however I definitely want to read the physical book because I tend to space out really easily so I missed out on some details and story. Really enjoying it though! Once I finish these two books I don’t really know what I will pick out next…maybe Just Listen by Sarah Dessen? But I also want to start on All the Light We Cannot See or The Book Thief…hmm decisions.

Anyways, that is all for my day 2 reading update and I hope you too had a great reading day! Don’t forget to check out my blogging challenge for today: 2018 Biannual Bibliothon Day 2: My Bookish Drink as we as my day 1 reading update. Thanks and happy reading 🙂

2018 Biannual Bibliothon Day 1: Reading Update!

alejtr5u

So day 1 of the winter Biannual Bibliothon is done, and I am very proud with what I managed to read. I decided to start of with The Elite by Kiera Cass, which is the second book in The Selection series, and I easily finished it in one day. I started it just after midnight, read until about one thirty in the morning, and then finished it off in the earlier afternoon. Even though I have read this book a few times, I still cried…maybe even more than I did the first three or so times I read it. I just love these books because they are so fun and entertaining to read. Anyways, this means I completed the challenge #2 which was to read a sequel, so yay! I also read some of Peter Pan by James M Barrie for challenge #5&6 to read a book mentioned in another form of media, and to read a book under two hundred pages. I decided to try out the audiobook version and I am really enjoying it! I am not a big audiobook person because I have never really given them a shot, but listening to Peter Pan just brings the story to life so much more. The narrator is great, and I am already two hour and forty-three minutes in, which translates to page 78 and that is about half way through. However, it is only nine forty-three in the evening for me and while I do have some homework I need to do, I definitely will be reading some more tonight. Currently I am reading Peter Pan still, as well as The One by Kiera Cass, the third book in the selection series. I wasn’t planning on reading this book during the readathon, but I just have to finish it before I move on to my other books I had picked up. Anyways, I am thirty pages into it and my goal is to knock out maybe two hundred before I go to bed and at least another twenty or so pages of Peter Pan! Overall though, a very successful day!

Day 1 Reading Count:

Books Read: 1

Pages Read: 444

That is all for my day 1 reading update and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my post for the Biannual Bibliothon day 1 blogging challenge which was to create your snowy day reading list. I create a “Snowy Day Book Tag” where I share the books on my snowy day list 🙂

Books That Need a Sequel!

Sometimes when a book ends, it doesn’t need a squeal…but when you finish it and there are a whole bunch of open ended questions, you want the answers to them! Here are a few books that I personally think should have a sequels. It doesn’t have to be a long sequel, just one that answers all of my questions. (P.S May contain spoilers below)

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell – Umm I bet you are all thinking the same because that ending left us with nothing! It seems like Rainbow Rowell enjoys leaving us with unanswered questions in the end because she does it a lot. I want to know how Park lives his life after Eleanor leaves him with a terrible explanation…does he meet someone else? Or can his undying love for Eleanor never go away? Also, what happens to Eleanor? Is she happy with her new life, or does she maybe regret the choices she has previously made? Answers to all these things would be great Rainbow Rowell!!!

Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins – These books end with no cliff hangers or anything, but I want to see how all these characters live their lives after the events in these books! I want to see them happy and how their future lives play out. I would be fine with no sequel but I would love to read one…

Paper Towns by John Green – I didn’t love this book, but I did not find it satisfying that Quentin just gave up on Margo after she turned him down. Like yes, Margo is not good for him whatsoever but if he actually loved her he wouldn’t let her go that easy! I want to know if he tries to go after her again, or if he finds someone new…what happens?!

The One by Kiera Cass – I know we have The Heir and The Crown that take place years later after The One, but I want a sequel solely based on Maxon and America and their lives right after they get married and Maxon gets crowned King! I love them together and am dying to see what happens on their honeymoon, and when they first get pregnant with Eadlyn. It doesn’t even have to be a full book, a novella would be fine by me.

Anyways, those are a few books I would really like sequels too! I hope you enjoyed and don’t forget to check out my last blog post: December 2016 Talk!

Series to Binge Read

We all love those series that you can just sit down, read, finish the book, and then continue on with the series without getting up…well obviously you get up at some point but you don’t want to. For this post, I will be telling you guys some series that you will start and not want to stop.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead – I am currently reading this series and I am loving it! I am on the third book and I never want to put them down. It is about two girls, Rose Hathaway who is a dhampir (protects vampires) and Lisa Dragomir who is a royal Moroi (vampire) and their life at St. Vladamir’s. The books follow them as they face enemies while trying to maintain a decent image. This is a good series to binge read because there are six books in total, Vampire Academy, Frostbite, Shadow Kiss, Blood Promise, Spirit Bound and Last Sacrifice. Go! Read them!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan – This series is such a fun and easy series to binge read so if you haven’t read these please go now and read them! These books are about a boy named Percy Jackson who discovers he is the son of a Greek god and how he has to learn to live with that because that isn’t a small feat. There are five books in the series and I love all of them. The Lightning Thief, Sea of Monsters, Titan’s Curse, Battle of the Labyrinth and Last Olympian. A totally easy binge read!

The Selection Series by Kiera Cass – There are now 5 books in this series (The Selection, The Elite, The One, The Heir, The Crown) and they are just so easy to read. I read the first 3 books in one sitting because I was absolutely hooked. I really recommend this as a binge reading series.

Lux Series by Jennifer L Armentrout – Again, there are five books in this series (Obsidian, Onyx, Opal, Origin and Opposition) and they are really interesting! My favourite is probably the first book but all the books are very good. Please read this series if you haven’t yet!
