Cramathon TBR- Dec 2016

So it's been a while, hasn't it. University has just been crazy and I have not really had time to read or blog but I now off for Christmas. Although I have a few deadlines and Harry Potter society stuff to do, I hope that I will be posting on here again soon. Anyway, I thought that I would post a Cramathon TBR which is a readathon hosted by WhittyNovels and Aprililus Maximus. The readathon starts on 16th December at 12 am and finished at 12 am on the 23rd December with the aim to read as much as possible to complete your Goodreads goal. I have already completed my Goodreads goal but need to get back into reading so thought this would be the way to do it. There are challenges that you need to complete and I am going to talk about them now. So let's get started...

Challenges

1. Read a book under 200 pages


Marly's GhostMarly's Ghost by David Levithan- I think that it is around 160 pages so definitely fits this theme and it is almost a retelling of a Christmas Carol so seems like a perfect fit. 










2. Read 2 books in 24 hours

Hopefully, I can read two of these books in 24 hours. It seems doable. 

3. Read a book set in a different country than where you live


You Know Me WellYou Know Me Well by David Levithan and Nina LaCour- It is set in America, I live in England. I am also excited to read this so...











4. Read a book you've been putting off/have been meaning to read forever 

To Kill a Mockingbird (To Kill a Mockingbird #1)To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee- I have wanted to read this book since I bought it last year and I pretty sure I said that I wanted to finish it this year. As you can see it has not happened yet but there is still time. 










5. Read a book with pictures 

Challenger DeepI am currently reading Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman which is quite a difficult read as I do relate to some aspects of the story but it features illustrations throughout so hopefully I can finish it during the week. 









6. Read a graphic novel

I am going to be reading 2 single issues instead and they are Great Lake Avengers #2 and Champions #3 so I hope they count. 

7. Read 7 books


If I read all the books on my TBR, that is 6 books and if I count the books that I am currently reading then that is 7 books so I would have completed this challenge. 

OK, so that is my Cramathon TBR. Are you planning on joining the readathon? Do you want to read any books mentioned in this post? Leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon, 

Amy

My Reading Tastes Are Changing

For the last couple of years, I feel like this has become a reoccurring blog post but I want to talk about it now because I think something is actually happening in my reading life. My reading tastes are changing. I've felt it for a while. I haven't really been drawn to YA titles that much anymore especially contemporary. Being busy in my time, I have been really selective in the books that I pick up so for me: the shorter, the better. And when picking up shorter books, the less likely they are to be YA. The more I am exposed to more books, the more I get to read books that I connect to Some of the books that I have picked up have really surprised me because of how much I ended up enjoying them. I think as I grow older, I am looking for different stories, different experiences and different perspectives. These don't just fit the YA mould. I also have been really into different genres like horror and the occasional thriller which have not read from before and I'm interes

Book Review: The Great Godden by Meg Rossoff

   * I am reviewing this book which I was gifted for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. * Title: The Great Godden  Author: Meg Rossoff Publisher: Bloomsbury  Source: NetGalley ( Bookshop UK |  Hive |  Goodreads  |  Storygraph ) Book Summary: Everyone talks about falling in love like it’s the most miraculous, life-changing thing in the world. Something happens, they say, and you know … That’s what happened when I met Kit Godden. I looked into his eyes and I knew. Only everyone else knew too. Everyone else felt exactly the same way. This is the story of one family, one dreamy summer – the summer when everything changes. In a holiday house by the sea, our watchful narrator sees everything, including many things they shouldn’t, as their brother and sisters, parents and older cousins fill hot days with wine and games and planning a wedding. Enter two brothers – irresistible, charming, languidly sexy Kit and surly, silent Hugo. Suddenly there’s

The Bus Stop: A Short Story

It was a silent night at the bus stop. Everything was quiet, eerily quiet for a Friday night. Too quiet. With that the night was broken. A boy was walking towards the bus stop, with his friend who was talking loudly. Beer bottle in hand, it was clear that the pre-drinking that been in fall force. The boy’s friend was yelling that the boy had broken up with his girlfriend earlier that night. “Forget Alice man. Drown your sorrows in drink. Tonight, you will be a man. A free man.” He said, slurring his words as he spoke, walking towards the road rather than on the pavement. Being scared for his safety, the boy was unsuccessfully trying to get his friend out of the pavement. Attempting successfully, the boy said to his friend, “I think we need to get you home.” The boy himself was not drunk, he had so wanted to be, but he thought that he was going out for a film night with his girlfriend, but this didn’t happen, instead the breakup did. One text later and his girlfriend was gone.
