Reading update and questions!

Hello everyone~

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but lately I’ve been posting a lot of “random” posts and hardly anything bookish. I have a reason for that! I was reading Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton and it’s so emotionally exhausting. It’s a really good book and I’m certainly enjoying it, but it makes you feel and think too much, so I decided to take a break from it and start The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. Long story short (too late) I haven’t finished any books to post about.

My question is, does it bother you when the blogs you follow for bookish reasons post non bookish things? Do you like it? Are you ok with it but prefer they wouldn’t?

I sort of want to post other things besides books, as much as I love books, sometimes I feel inspired to post other things. I’m just not sure if I should post it here or start a different blog.

What are your thoughts, opinions, advice?

#AYEARATHON – Benchwarmers Days 6 & 7 update

 

#AYEARATHON is now over! I finished reading Mind Over Easy by Bryan Cohen and read 50% of Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. Not bad! I’m pretty happy with the results. But like I said before, I’m sort of thinking that I wont be joining many read-a-thons this year. I prefer to read when I feel like it. I’ll still work towards my Goodreads goal and the PopSugar challenge of course!

I am glad I participated in this read-a-thon though, otherwise I don’t know if I would have gotten to Uglies.

Reviews coming…. later… maybe soon-ish.

#AYEARATHON – Benchwarmers Days 4 & 5 update

I’m still reading Uglies. I’m at 41%. I haven’t read much this whole week. I have vacation but I’ve been using it to pack my things. Moving always takes time, but moving countries takes times and a lot of decision making. Getting things to the post office also takes forever if you don’t have a car. Anyway, the more I do read-a-thons, the more I realize that they’re not for me. I enjoy the month and year long ones because they give me a goal and plenty of time to read what I want, but the weekly and 24hr ones are hard for me. I like to read at my own pace and sometimes I just don’t feel like it. I think when I join read-a-thons I have this extra pressure which makes me read even less. Hmm… I’ll have to rethink how I read this year.

Anyway, I’m really enjoying Uglies! It’s a good book!!

#AYEARATHON -Benchwarmers Days 2&3 Update

24644390

Woo! Day 3 is over and I’ve read 29% of Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. On Day 2 I didn’t get much reading done. I only read around 20 pages. I felt a little tired after reading so much on Day 1 so I took a break. Day 3 I read about 80 pages which is a lot for me, but not overwhelming.

I’m going to try to read about as much on Day 4. I really want to finish this book by the end of the read-a-thon, but most of all, I just want to enjoy the book. So far I am enjoying it and I can’t wait to find out what happens next!!

#AYEARATHON -Benchwarmers Day 1 Update

 

This month I’m participating in the #AYEARATHON read-a-thon and the theme is Benchwarmers – Books that have been on your shelves for a long time.

The read-a-thon runs from Jan 4th – Jan 10th.

Day 1:

I finally finished Mind Over Easy (Ted Saves the World #2) by Byran Cohen and finally started reading Uglies by Scott Westerfeld.

I hope I can finish Uglies by the 10th!
