#TheReadingQuest Sign-Up Post & TBR

Hi there!  I’m not sure if you know, but Aentee from Read at Midnight does THE MOST epic readathons.  I was pretty bummed to miss out on the Harry Potter themed one earlier this year, and when I saw #TheReadingQuest, I just knew I HAD to sign up. #TheReadingQuest runs from 13 August to 10 September, and this sign-up post sets out all of the rules.  Basically you choose a path, either Knight, Mage, Bard or Rogue, and read books for the challenges on that path before choosing a new path to proceed on.  The boxes in the middle are side quests, and can be read at any time.  As the quest goes on, you earn points for meeting various […]

The A-Z Reading Challenge 2014!

The A-Z Reading Challenge 2014!

This year I participated in the Young Adult Book Club‘s A-Z Reading Challenge, and it was so much fun!  The rules can be found here, but basically you had to read a book for each letter of the alphabet and at least half of them had to be young adult books.  You could read the books in any order you wanted, which I certainly did!  Aside from some tricky letters (Q, X and Z, I’m looking at you!), the letter in the alphabet corresponded to either the first word in the book title or the author’s name (first or last). I’m so pleased to say I completed the challenge!  Since It’s looking like I won’t finish my Goodreads challenge, I’m […]

The Re-Read Challenge 2015: Sign-Up!

The Re-Read Challenge 2015: Sign-Up!

I don’t know about you guys but I love a re-read!  It’s a chance to re-experience a book and I usually find myself falling in love with it all over again.  Unfortunately, I haven’t prioritised re-reading as much as I used to, and there are so many of my books I’d love to re-read but I haven’t gotten around to it.  Needless to say, I was pretty pumped when I heard that Belle of the Literati and So Obsessed With were having a Re-Read Challenge for 2015 😀 Ideally I’d like to re-read about twenty books next year for this challenge; it may sound like a lot but I know from experience that it doesn’t take me long to re-read […]

Stacking the Shelves {7}

Stacking the Shelves {7}

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly haul meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, and it’s an opportunity to share the books we’re adding to our shelves each week.   The books can be physical or virtual, purchased or borrowed from the library, or even gifted or for review. It’s been a quiet couple of weeks bookwise; I’ve hardly gotten any new books and now I’m in search of a new library.  But of the two books I got this week, one is THE BIG ONE I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time now 🙂 Bought  Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty That’s right, I’ve finally got ISLA!!  I pre-ordered my […]
