I am back in the regular blogging game, and boy does it feel good! Last month, I posted a dual month wrap post and it featured so many books that it was hard to understand how I had managed to actually read that many words in such a short space of time (click here to read). This month could not be more different. Instead of reading lots of books, I settled for reading barely anything, only actually starting and finishing a single book in the whole month, and finishing 3 that I started before September even began. OK, so the first week or so was wiped out with the holiday, and I would obviously rather be on holiday, but even so, I’m quite ashamed of my reading performance. Continue reading
It’s been a few months since I have done a Top 5 Wednesday. I have been reading a lot more blog entries, and actually watching (or listening to when my housemate is watching them) booktubers, and have therefore been reading books that I would otherwise never have known about or thought to read. I am all about a good recommendation, but I am sadly rubbish at actually giving them, so I appreciate when a good recommendation comes along!

Guys, I fancied doing a tag, and have been storing ones I like in my drafts for a while. I thought it was about time to drag one out, and so I had a look and this one jumped out at me! It’s been a little while since the film came out, and I am now eagerly awaiting my birthday to ask for the DVD for my birthday, so I thought I would do this to tide me over. So to start with, the rules:
- Thank the person who tagged you – many thanks to Emma @ The Terror of Knowing. You said tag yourself, so I did, thanks!
- Mention the creator – Kirsty @ Kirsty and the Cat Read (her original post is here)
- Match a book to each of the songs/characters below
- Tag as many people as you like – I hereby tag anyone reading this who wants to give it a go!
The sun is shining, the world is gleaming, because my favourite readathon is back! Bout of Books 20 is round the corner, and I am too excited, like ridiculously excited. Probably too excited. Bout of Books 20, wow, I can’t believe we’re hitting 20 already! What is it all about I hear you cry (into the wind)? Well, I’ve been made an expert on all things Bout of Books, so here’s the deal: It’s fun, friendly, low-key, and most of all, it’s all about you.
Bout of Books is a great online readathon, and community, and for the last week in August we’re picking up our books (whatever books you want to read) and reading them at your own pace (I mean it, whether you read a book a day, or a page a week), we’re chatting on twitter, and we’re having a laugh. C’mon, join us, you know you want to.
I love me a good readathon, and folks, there’s a curling one coming up. It’s time for Tome Topple, the readathon when bibliophiles like myself get all of our biggest books and attempt to read/weight lift these tomes together. It’s my second Tome Topple readathon, and last time (click here to view my posts from last time) I managed to read a couple of long books that I’d been meaning to for a while, so I’ve eyed up some longer books to go on my Tome Topple TBR.
So, what is it? Well, Tome Topple is a two week readathon created by Sam aka Thoughts on Tomes and this time the readathon is taking place from midnight in your timezone on 4th August until 11:59pm on 17th August. The aim of this readathon is to read big books, aka books over 500 pages aka “tomes”, so unlike many readathon, it’s about the number of pages in a book rather than the quantity of books you manage to finish over the fortnight. Want more information, you can watch Sam’s announcement video or check out the readathon Twitter page and/or the Goodreads group.
