October Wrap Up + November Schedule

I am going to keep this one short and sweet this week. I took part in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon and managed to get a couple of books down, finish one from last month and I am currently a good way through Kingdom of Ash. I am really enjoying it and thus far it seems like its going to be a good way to end the series.

What I Finished

What I’m Currently/Planning on Reading

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon – October 2018 Wrap Up

And its all over! I am really happy with how it went! I nearly participated in all the challenges and this is one of my best page results for this read-a-thon! I had an amazing time and would really like to know how you all did so link me to your wrap up!

Total Pages Read: 733

Books Finished:

 

Closing Survey!

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?

Hours 9 and 10 for sure. I actually crashed for about 2-3 hours after hour 10.

2. Tell us ALLLLL the books you read!

 

 

 

 

3. Which books would you recommend to other Read-a-thoners?

I really loved The Rest of us Just Live Here. It was such an easy read and I did enjoy myself even if it wasn’t your standard fantasy.

4. What’s a really rad thing we could do during the next Read-a-thon that would make you happy?

I think I enjoyed the old structure for the read-a-thon, but in saying that I did like the more relaxed way of the mini challenges.

5. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? Would you be interested in volunteering to help organize and prep?

I will definitely will participate again. I want to be active in other ways as well but I need to decide things like that closer to the actual event.

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon – Wrap Up

deweylogo-400x335

And its all over (by a few hours by now as I distracted). Here is how it all went:

Total Pages Read: 416

1.Which hour was most daunting for you?

The early hours are the worst for me as the read-a-thon starts at 10pm my time so I am already tired when it starts. Hour 4 I think is when I crashed.

2.Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

I think easy books are the best for read-a-thons. Short pages are also good to spur you on every time you finish a book.

3.Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season?

Nope I think you guys just naturally grow in a way thats good for you and good for our community. I always look forward to it :)

4.What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

I really enjoyed the genre election at the end! Simple fun battle. Fantasy was obviously going to win though ;)

5.How many books did you read?

One and a bit.

6.What were the names of the books you read?

vassainthenight empire-of-storms

 

 

 

 

7.Which book did you enjoy most?

empire-of-storms

 

 

 

 

8.Which did you enjoy least?

vassainthenight

 

 

 

 

9.How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

I say this every year but I would really like to host an event or offer prizes at some point for another read-a-thon!

 

Till Next Time…

Bout Of Books 17 – Wrap Up

Bout of Books

Soooooo I didn’t end up having much time for this read-a-thon as you can see. I didn’t do challenges and I only really got to read on the weekend. BUT I did manage to complete my overall goal of finishing at least 2 of my books I wanted to read so for someone in a reading slump I think thats pretty great.

Total Pages Read: 649

Books Finished:

tell the truth how i live now

 

Books Unfinished:

March Wrap Up

wrapup

Hey guys, how have you been this month? Sorry I haven’t seen or really responded to any messages you have sent me. As I said in my last wrap up my major work has been consuming my life and its due on the 7th :'( so I am still consumed. I just wanted to pop in a give you guys a quick update.

Here are the kind of things I have been reading this last month:

carnivoures of aus Australian Mammals predatores with pouches

 

 

 

 

But then once all my school work is over I get to read again! Or at least a bit more because I will still be busy till the end of April. But I can plan on reading a few books so here are a couple I want to get into right away:

the-sacred-lies-of-minnow-bly-stephanie-oakes passenger

 

 

 

 

As a reward for finishing my major work I am getting myself a new bookcase to hold all the books I have gotten while I haven’t been able to read. So there might be a bookcase organisation video and tour for you guys in the future :) I haven’t planned or scheduled anything though because I need to focus, and I will want to have a bit of me time to just read.

February Wrap Up

wrapup

First things first, I don’t really have anything to put here because I did not finish reading anything last month. The only thing I really got through was Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon, and that book is huge, specially when I am doing it in audio book form, so I have much of it left to finish.

Second, I do not have a TBR for you this month. I do not plan on reading anything. Last months lack of reading and this months not planning on reading all have to do with my tafe course. My major work for it is due at the start of April, so I have been avoiding books in the hopes that it would help me focus on it. It has and it hasn’t. I am having huge book withdrawals.

But this post is not going to be all pointless. I have done some bookish things and I thought this would be a good space to share with you all the posts I have scheduled to pop up while I am trying not to think about my blog or books. I have pretty much an entire month planned! Go me. I don’t think I have ever felt more organised.

Anyways, here we go:

7/3 – Book Haul February

8/3 – TTT – Character Opinions I Differed On

10/3 – Thursday Tags – 25 Bookish Facts About Me

13/3 – Sunday Shopping – Happy Hello! Harry Potter

15/3 – TTT – Autumn TBR

16/3 – Book Review – His Dark Materials

19/3 – Book Review – Losing You

22/3 – TTT – Books I Need To Talk More About

25/3 – Book Review – Newes From the Dead

28/3 – Unscheduled

29/3 – TTT – Recently Top Rated Books

31/3 – Unscheduled

 

So yeah, there you have my posting schedule for the month. Besides those two things which I have started writing up but am not quite finish so may change my mind about, this is what you will be getting while I am ‘away.’ Is this something you guys want to see more regularly? I know other bloggers do it weekly but I can’t see myself doing that. I can see myself doing it monthly or fortnightly though. Also, if you have any tags you would like me to do leave a comment. I have a bunch of them but if you have ones that you would like to see earlier or what not tell me.

 

Till Next Time. . .
