If Books Were Clickbait | Winter Biannual Bibliothon Challenge #4

The 2019 Winter Biannual Bibliothon is halfway over (sadly) BUT hopefully everyone’s reading and other fun online challenges are going strong!

Today’s blog challenge comes from Sprinkled with Words, where we must create clickbait titles of our favorite books. Here is the official prompt:

Clickbait Your Favourite Books! Choose 3-5 of your favourite books, and write totally clickbaity titles! For example, for Harry Potter, you could have something like: This boy had no idea who his parents were until his 11th birthday – you’ll never guess what he found out!

Now let’s see if I’m able to create some faux clickbait ads that people would totally want to click! 😀 Continue reading “If Books Were Clickbait | Winter Biannual Bibliothon Challenge #4”

Party with Protagonists | Winter Biannual Bibliothon Challenge #2

It is now Day 2 of the Winter Biannual Bibliothon and I’m hours deep into some great reading and drafting up future blog posts!

I’m currently 179 pages into A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, which fulfills the ‘new author’ challenge. I also finished Cassandra Clare’s A Queen of Air and Darkness, a read I had started before the Biannual Bibliothon and one I needed to finish before delving into any of my other challenge books! I had 192 pages left of that bad boy, resulting in a total of 371 pages read thus far. (Though QoAaD isn’t one of my TBR books for this readathon, I’m totally counting the pages read 😉 )

For today’s blog challenge, Libby Reads wants us to invite 12 characters to a Christmas tea party. Here is their official prompt:

You’ve been invited to a Christmas tea/ or Christmas party and no one shows up and you have to think of 12 bookish characters that you would like to invite or bring with you to this tea/party. There will be food/drinks/games to play. But these characters have to play nice and get along with everyone else. Who would you bring with you.

Dot your I’s with hearts and finish licking that last envelope, it’s time to invite some characters to our Christmas Tea Party! Continue reading “Party with Protagonists | Winter Biannual Bibliothon Challenge #2”

Winter Biannual Bibliothon 2019 TBR

Winter has arrived and along with it has come the Winter Biannual Bibliothon! This round will run from Jan 12th until the 18th.

This will be my second time participating in this readathon and I’m more motivated than ever to complete both the reading and blog challenges.

Last round, I managed to do 6 out of 7 blog challenges and read 3 out of 6 planned books. This year, I’m aiming for 7/7 for both, baby!

Without further ado, here is my planned TBR. Continue reading “Winter Biannual Bibliothon 2019 TBR”

The Clique Series | Review

As I was going through boxes of my old books, I came across a series that was integral to my reading habits in my early teen years.

The Clique series.

Okay, before anyone judges, this book series was the one that really got me into reading when I was around 10-11. I was OBSESSED with these books and had reread them all several times over. After finding the complete collection in my attic, I was curious to see how they held up all these years later, and whether or not I’ll would have the same feelings towards the end!

Is it as good as I remember? Is the writing witty and awesome? Are the characters still memorable and fun? Are these books problematic?

Pretty Committee, here I come! Continue reading “The Clique Series | Review”

Dear Martin | BOOK REVIEW

A very socially relevant novel, Dear Martin explores the injustice and hypocrisy surrounding many modern-day race issues. Clearly inspired by real events and news stories, the novel places protagonist Justyce McAllister, a black student with strong academics, a kind demeanor, and his eye on Yale, into the front seat of a string of injustices (from inappropriate jokes and racist comments to a wrongful arrest and even more). This forces him to reevaluate the dynamics between race and to frequently ask himself, “What would Martin Luther King Jr. do in my situation?”  Continue reading “Dear Martin | BOOK REVIEW”
