BookTubeAThon Wrap Up 2015

Hello again!

I’m here today with my BookTubeAThon wrap up! I loved the BookTubeAThon this year, and I think it may have been my most successful BookTubeAThon to date!

I worked 6 of the 7 days of the readathon and on Sunday I was so ill that I couldn’t keep my eyes open for long and had to lie down in a dark room all day (super fun times). That being said I did finish 5 books and got part way through some other books. I moved away from my TBR a little but I enjoyed everything I read. So here’s what I read.

  • A Book With Blue On The Cover AND The Last Book You Acquired:

P.S I Still Love You – Jenny Han

IMG_0755

This is the second book in the To All The Boys I’ve Loved before duology. I can’t say much because I don’t want to spoil the first book, but I really enjoyed this one! I was already 100 pages through this one before I started the readathon.

4/5 stars

237 pages read.

  • A Book You Really Want To Read

Severed Heads, Broken Hearts (The Beginning Of Everything) – Robyn Schneider

IMG_0770

Ezra is a golden boy. He’s popular, smart, young, handsome and has a Tennis Scholarship. One night a reckless driver hits Ezra’s car, crushing his knee, his social life and any chance at an athletic career.

LOVED THIS! Wow. The writing was brilliant, it got me hooked and it flowed wonderfully. This whole book was witty and the jokes where smart and smiled all the way through it. I really cared for the characters but got really bored of Cassidy. She’s that classic “whimsical, I don’t care about anything” girl like Margo from Paper Towns and Alaska from Looking For Alaska. It’s so clique and boring.

That being said I loved this so much!

4.5/stars!

335 pages read.

  • Finish A Book Without Letting Go Of It

Waiting – Carol Lynch Williams

IMG_0768

When London’s brother Zach dies, her life spirals into the dark. This is a griping and heartfelt novel about love, family and death.

This really got me in the feels. I kept thinking over and over again about what I would do if one of my brothers died. I did have a few problems with this one however. The characters did things that weren’t very thought through and didn’t make much sense, and their actions were never really explained. Nothing was explained really.

3/5 stars.

352 pages read.

  • A Book By An Author Who Shares The Same First Letter Of Your Last Name

An Abundance Of Katherines – John Green

IMG_0766

This is about Colin, a child prodigy who is obsessed with Katherines. Okay, maybe not obsessed but that’s what I took away from this book. Nothing really happened, I found it difficult to read and I just didn’t like it. Bleh.

2/5 stars

227 pages read.

  • Read 7 Books In Total

Warm Bodies – Isaac Marion

IMG_0782

For my fifth book I decided to read Warm Bodies from my August TBR list. I’ve wanted to watch the film for so long, so I can now finally get to it. All I really knew going into this was that it was about a zombie named “R” that befriended a human.

I really liked this, I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. I really began to care for the characters and I was rooting for them all the way. I gave it 4/5 stars simply because I felt like something was missing to give it 5/5.

4/5 stars!

240 pages read!

Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell

IMG_0763

I haven’t finished this yet! But I am loving it!

98 pages read during the readathon.


Yay! Tah Dah!

That was everything I read during the BookTubeAThon! How well did you do? I finished 5 books and completed 5 challenges. I also read a total of 1489 pages!

Did you participate in the BookTubeAThon? How did you do?!

August TBR 2015

IMG_0774

Hola! How’re you today?

I thought I’d my TBR for August with you. I read 15 books in July, so hopefully I can keep up with that. I currently have 98 physical books on my TBR shelf, which I hope to knock down to 90 by September.

I’m planning to take part in the BookTubeAThon from the 3rd to the 9th, and you can check out my TBR if you’d like, as I wont mention those in this one.

The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald

IMG_0776

Can you believe I’ve never read this? I’m super excited for this one.

Eclipse – Stephanie Meyer

IMG_0778

The third book in the Twilight series. I think its about time I finished this series, and I plan/hope to marathon the last two books and novella soon.

Saving Jackie K – L.D.C. Fitzgerald

IMG_0784

I adored 11.22.63 by Stephen King because I really enjoy reading about JFK, and this is all about Jackie Kennedy. So I’m excited for this.

The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden – Jessica Sorensen

IMG_0780

I need to throw a New Adult in the mix every now and then and I’ve heard a lot of good things about this one.

Warm Bodies – Isaac Marion

IMG_0782

A short book about zombies and I’ve still not seen the film!


I hope to get through all of these, as well as the books in my BookTubeAThon TBR. I doubt I will do it, but one can dream!

What do plan on reading this month?

BookTubeAThon TBR 2015

 

Hello again all of you beautiful people! How are you today?

The BookTubeAThon is near and I’m here to talk about my TBR for the week. There is a BookTubeAThon YouTube channel that you can checkout. It has all of the information you could ever need there.

There are seven challenges that I hope to complete. (Hopefully).

  • Book With Blue On The Cover AND The Last Book You Acquired

P.S I Still Love You – Jenny Han

I am a little way through this already, so I may finish this before the readathon starts.

  • Read Somebodies Favourite Book

Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell

Fangirl is pretty much everyone’s favourite book and I’m so excited to read it! Even though it is a rather large book.

  • A Book By An Author Who Shares The Same First Letter Of Your Last Name

An Abundance Of Katherines – John Green

My last name begins with a J, but I have no others at all on my TBR shelf that begins with that. So I went for John Green as his first name begins with a J.

  • Finish A Book Without Letting Go Of It

Waiting – Carol Lynch Williams 

This is short, the font is pretty big, and I think it may be written in verse (but don’t quote me on that!)

  • A Book You Really Want To Read

Severed Heads and Broken Hearts (The Beginning Of Everything) – Robyn Schneider

I WANNA READ THIS SO BAD!

  • Read 7 Books Overall

I also hope to get to The Bling Ring by Nancy Jo Sales and Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger too. (But I’m not promising anything)

    

Are you taking part in the Booktubeathon? If so, what are you reading?

Have a wonderful day everyone!
