Readathons Whateverathon, or Whatever-You-Want-athon, is taking place the entire month of June. This readathon is hosted by Maddie from Book Browsing Blog on YouTube. This is the second year of the readathon. I had a lot of fun with it last year, and hope to have fun with it again this year. The teams and… Continue reading Whateverathon 2 | June TBR
May has been a bit stressful from work stuff. In fact I was working some "overtime" the last week or two of May, even though I seem to be in a lull of stuff to do for the projects I'm responsible for. I put "overtime" in quotes because I'm salaried, so I don't really get… Continue reading May 2022 Wrap Up
Becca's 48-hour Bookoplathon took place over the weekend of May 21-22. This readathon is particularly special, and I'm sure stressful for Becca, because it is live on YouTube for the full 48 hours. With the help of many hosts, each takes a turn hosting a 4-hour block with chatting, maybe some games, and then reading… Continue reading Becca’s Bookoplathon Wrap Up
Whateverathon is coming back next month. Like a few other readathons I've participated in, there is a prompt on the Bingo boards for a one-word title. I remember a time where I would struggle to come up with ideas for this prompt. Either the books I found were in genres I didn't want to read, or just didn't sound interesting. Here are a few books I recommend you check out and consider reading.
So many moments in this book were uncomfortable. Not a bad uncomfortable. The kind of uncomfortable where you just know things are going to go so far sideways.
This is written like it's supposed to be plot-driven, but you can guess what will happen. The twists come from acts, that seem out of character. These moments pull you out of the story. This is probably an unpopular opinion since most reviews I heard about this book were great. I was excited to read the book finally but then had these moments pull me out of the book. This is one series I won't be continuing.
Recommending audiobooks for running When you go running, they say you should listen to music with somewhere between 120 to 140 beats per minute. This should help you keep a good cadence throughout your run. However, I much prefer listening to audiobooks when I run. Music makes me want to dance, and this could mess… Continue reading Audiobooks for Running
When I was picking what to read this month, I wasn't paying attention to the number of pages. I now have regrets of what I have chosen. Somewhat. While I don't have much hope of getting through anything more than 2 of these books; I still hope I will be able to make time to read all these because I really want to read them all. Together though, with what I have left of the one book carrying over from previous TBRs, these books total 2457 pages.
April Wrap Up April was an okay reading month. Whether you count by pages, or books though, February was still better. I'm hoping I can get the groove back that I had in February, because I had fun that month. But here we are now in May, and I can't go back and tell myself… Continue reading April Wrap Up
I love participating in Dewey's readathon because of the great community feeling around reading. It's also very chill. There's no reading goal, unless you give yourself one. I can't say how many times now I've participated, because it's been a while. Even when I wasn't necessarily posting here or on YouTube, I was participating in this readathon. I'm very excited to get started.
