So, I gave my sister my card and told her to go to this book fair and buy whatever looks like something I would read. As a whole all the books above ended up costing me less than 80 euros which is awesome. If I had to be honest, I think I’ll have a hard time reading Elizabeth Chandler given that she writes fantasy and paranormal and I normally don’t these genres so wish me luck!

LATE-A-THON TBR And My Current TBR

Apart from the books I showed you above here are the books on my To Be Read.

First of all, sorry but I don’t have space for a bookshelf so I tried my best. Since I took the photos I read some of the books.

  • The New Hunger (Warm Bodies #1.5) by Isaac Marion (3 stars).
  • Closure, Limited and Other Zombie Stories by Max Brooks (2 stars).
  • Trojan Odyssey (Dirk Pitt #17) by Clive Cussler  (DNF).
  • A Weaver Baby (Return to the Double-C Ranch #5) by Allison Leigh (DNF).
  • Not Working by Lisa Owens (2 stars).

LATE-A-THON

ANNOUNCEMENT: LATE-A-THON!

Late-a-thon is a month-long readathon from January 1st to 31st dedicated to working on overdue review copies and ARCS! Hosted by Destiny at Holing Libraries

I don’t have ARCS but, I have a lot of books to read so win- win. I don’t have a tbr yet but that is coming soon!

Here’s how you can join…

  • Create a TBR in a blog post, tweet, or whatever else you like to use. If you’re joining January Jam Jar, make a list of the books going in your jar!
  • Leave a comment here with a link to your TBR so I can add you to the sign-up list below! SIGN-UPS OPEN UNTIL JANUARY 15TH!
  • Use #LateAThon on social media!
  • READ AT LEAST ONE “LATE” BOOK IN JANUARY—that’s it! You don’t have to commit the whole month to it (in fact, many participants are just doing it for a week of their choosing), nor do you have to fulfill a certain number of titles or challenges.

Come join us,

Alex

Readathin Wrap Up

So I’m preparing this a few days earlier since I finished all my challenges days ago. How did it all go? Every time I take part in read along is always very fun and it’s a way to make new friends. I read my tbr in the first couple of days. So, I just read random books after that. Here are the challenges I completed:

Donna – Read a book with purple or white on the cover. Love Handles (Oakland Hills #1) by Gretchen Galway.
Melissa – Read a book with a birthday in it. The 24th Letter (Sean O’Brien #2) by Tom Lowe (chose this because my birthday is on the 24th).
Kendra – Read a book with a house on the cover or house/home in the title. Summer at West Sands Guest House by Maggie Conway.
Taylor – Read a book that was gifted to you. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (I was given this by my aunt but it fell apart so I got an e-copy hopeful still counts.).
Jessica – Read a book with a map in it. Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J. Maas.
Chelsea- Read a book starring with one of the letters from AUGUST. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.
Amanda – Read a book with a romance in it. Love and Rumors (The Summer Sisters #1) by Jean Oram.
Read a book you’ve had for over a year. A few of the books above can count for this.

My conclusion  is that I would love to create my own readathon who is in this with me, comment below!
