Mid-Event Survey

What are you reading right now?

Nana Volume 1 by Ai Yazaea

How many books have you read so far?

I have read three but I have yet to finish all of them.

What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?

I picked books I new I would love so all of them. Maybe finishing Farthing Wood because I have yet to read this book before.

Have you had many interruptions?

Sorta. There was that sleep nap because I can never just nap and always end up sleeping. Getting ready and getting food will interrupt me though.

How did you deal with those?

I passed out .There wasn’t much to deal with. But in terms of leaving the house I will be listening to audio books :)

What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?

How short some of the challenges run for. I am sad I missed the because of stupid sleep :(

Snapshot Challenge

Readers, your challenge is to take a literal or figurative snapshot of your favorite moment either from the book you are currently reading or from a book you have already read during the ReadAThon. Visually symbolize the moment you choose (“shelfie”, drawing, digital art, etc), you can compose poetic tweet, or perhaps post a video reenacting the scene. Be creative; there are no limits! Whichever medium you select, please caption your entry with the title and author of the book upon which your snapshot is based if possible.

Host post.

My favourite moment in The Animals of Farthing Wood is when Fox meets Vixen and saves her from The Hunt.

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon – October 2015 (Hour 13)

Feelings:

So I feel better and bad. I had to sleep. I think I set an alarm clock but I turned it off. having only gotten a couple of hours of sleep the night before and having getting up hours before the even started was killing me. I couldn’t drink an more energy drink at that point because my heart kind of felt like it was going to explode AND I was still falling sleep. So because I slept I feel better, but thats 6 hours I am not getting back for reading (though I got a bit of that done with audio book before I fell asleep)… and I missed out on some mini challenges because they ended. Oh well.

Armchair Travelling

One of the many delights of reading is the ability books have to help us travel the world in our imaginations – rich descriptions and stories that make us feel transported, even if we haven’t left our couch.

But what if you could actually be transported into the setting of the novel? Magically teleported while you’re reading, with the ability to look up and take in the setting all around you, and then find yourself home again when you close the book?

For rules and more details check out the host blog.

This was easy for me. Pretty much any volume of Nana because 1. I dont think I have any other books that happen in the real world in places of any interest, and 2. because pretty much the entire series takes place in Tokyo which I would love to see!

Pumpkin And Spice or Naw

Take a selfie with smiles and a thumbs up for team Pumpkin Spice or with a frown and thumbs down for Pumpkin Spice haters. Leave me a link to your blog post/Instagram/Tweet/Tumble in the comments (keep in mind your privacy settings will need to allow me to see said post).

Have I mentioned that I hate selfie based contests? I was asleep 20 minutes ago how good do you expect me to look?

I chose: I dunno because I have never had it because we don’t do drinks like that in Australia so I guess no?

October Wrap Up + November TBR

wrapup

Hey there guys! I am going to be introducing just short and simple wrap ups to my blog to keep you guys up to date on what happened to me during the month, as well as to keep me up to date. Sometimes I swear I have done so much more that I have. This month is no exception. The books I read this month are:

Creed final cover Last Changeling

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yep, that’s right. Two. Just two. I really thought I had read at least three but apparently not! I was supposed to have reviews up for these books by now because I received them both for review from the publisher, but I got busy and didn’t get a chance. I didn’t really like either of these two books so the reviews fell to the not-really-important section of my brain. Expect the reviews to pop up in the next week or so.

Now for the TBR, I think this is going to change depending on what I get done in the AYearAThon read-a-thon over the next week, so if you want to see that TBR lost check it out here. Some other books I want to get read this month are:

 

All-the-Bright-Places-jkt Ava-lavender_march.png The-Archived

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really hope to have a good reading month since I haven’t had a great one lately.
