Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon TBR

Is this impulsive?

Yes, yes it is.

Am I staying on brand?

Um–yes why yes I am.

So if you haven’t noticed by the title, I have decided albeit impulsively–to participate in this years Dewey’s 24 hour read-a-thon! If you don’t know what this read-a-thon is you can check out there website HERE for all the glorious information and to sign up. But essentially, it’s a readathon where readers all over the world dedicate 24 hours at the same time to reading and talking about what we are reading! There are mini-challenges that a slew of amazing people across different mediums and social medias will be hosting; and over all it is just one heck of a time where the TBR gets slain…or in my case attempts to get slain.

As I live close to the Louisiana border in Texas, this time around my start time is 7am this Saturday. If you are participating and don’t know when your start time for your city is, you can check out this page to find out!!

But without further ado, this is myΒ tentative TBR for this Saturday! Will I get to them all? Probably not, but dang flapjacks I’m gonna try!Β  Continue reading “Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon TBR”

Blogoween Day4.png

A new day, a new Blogoween post! Today’s post is from our next host Kaleena @ Reader Voracious! Big shout out to Anthony at Keep Reading Forward for doing an amazing job kick starting Blogoween!

Kaleena’s first prompt of the season is one that makes me giddy all over–Top five Witchy Books. Now I’ve read only a handful of Witchy books and unfortunately didn’t like any of them save for Potter. BUT! Kaleena has so graciously allowed me to tweak her prompt to list the wizarding books I really can’t wait to get my grubby hands on! Thank you again!

So grab your wands and hats, and lets see what magical books I can’t wait to sink into next! Continue reading “BLOGOWEEN DAY 4: Top 5 Witchy Books”

Ah, another day back in the Blogoween sphere and honestly I am having a blast reading everyone’s posts! And to think it is the only third day of Blogoween! You guys are amazing and I am thriving on your excitement and enthusiasm for this event! YOU ARE AMAZING!

For today’s Blogoween’s post I decided to deviate from the host’s prompts and go rogue. I know forever me staying on brand. But I thought it would be fun to show you guys what I am planning on reading this month, as well as wrap up everything that I devoured last month!

WWW Wednesday: September 5

wwwwed

WWW is a weekly meme hosted by Sam (not me) @ Taking On A World Of Words. If you want to join on this action, all you have to do is answer the following three questions and then comment your post link on Sam’s (again not me) current post! Voila!

(Click on the cover of the book to be taken to its Goodread’s page!)

What are you currently reading?

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)Currently in between three different books this week! Which I’m hoping to get done with two of them by Friday! I’m on a mission to get through the entire Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas for the first time before the last installment comes out next month. This is a feat because Sarah doesn’t play with word count. These are some thick ass books and so far I think there are six published already…so we are looking at a total of 3,000+ words here if my vague math is correct. Maybe I’ll do a 24 hour readathon one of these weekends. Eh we will see. Continue reading “WWW Wednesday: September 5”
