Log of the week:

Day1:

I started the first day with Illuminae. I sat a goal to read it in 3 days. That is 200 pages each day. And the first day I read 170 pages, so I was a little bit behind. But I was proud, because it’s more than I usually read in a day.

Day2:

Still reading Illuminae, and I got really into the book. And was enjoying it. I could not stop reading. It was thundering outside and raining. Perfect for a reading day. I was really proud of how much I read this day. 240 pages. I can’t believe it, probably a new record for me.

I finished Illuminae and it was awesome. It’s now one of my favorite books of all time. And it was perfect to read in a read a thon. I have to write a review on it asap. The book had me swimming in feels.

I also started a new book on my kindle. The Moorigad Dragon. I only read 17 pages of it that day.

Day4:

I only read to page 65 in The Moorigad Dragon. Not the best reading day, but it was OK.

Day5:

This day finished The Moorigad Dragon. I didn’t like it. Good thing it was a quick read.

Day6:

I started reading Golden Son. I was on page 300 and read to page 360. This book is a slow read for me. But I am really enjoying it. What I mean by slow is that I probably only read 30 pages in one hour.

Day7:

I only read 20 pages in Golden Son. But I read in another book that was not on my TBR for the read a thon. 70 pages in Outlander.

Bye Summer Biannual Bibliothon 2016 I had a great time

June Wrap Up & July TBR

June Wrap Up:

So I only read two books this month. Both books was slow reads for me. But they are both great books. I also read about 150 pages in Outlander. And over half of Golden Son.

 

– We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver –


This book is about 16 year old Kevin, who murdered 9 people in a massacre at his high school. The book is written in letter format from Kevin’s mom to his father. Two years after the terrible event.

I have not read anything like this before. It was an interesting dark book that made me think a lot. I will have a review up on the blog soon.

Rating : ★★★★☆

 

– Red Rising by Pierce Brown –


Red rising is a great dystopian science fiction trilogy. With a lot of action and political games. I have a review of this book
here.  

Rating : ★★★★☆

 

July TBR:

This is the books I am currently reading and the books I want to read in July.

 

– Summer Biannual Bibliothon 2016 –

I will be participating in the Summer Biannual Bibliothon. You can find my blog post on it here , with links to the challenges and my TBR.

 

– Golden Son by Pierce Brown –

This book is the second book in the Red Rising trilogy. I am currently reading this book, and I am halfway through. I hope to finish this soon. I am really enjoying it.

 

–  Outlander by Diana Gabaldon –

The next book I am currently reading is Outlander. I really like this book so far. It is easy to read, but it is huge, 896 pages long. I love the setting in this book. Outlander is a historical fiction, Romance novel.

It is about a girl in 1945. While she is on a vacation with her  husband in Scotland. She touches a circle of ancient standing stones, and gets teleported back to the same place in 1743. And she gets torn between two men and two centuries.

 

– Morning star by Pierce Brown –

I hope that if I have time at the end of the month I will start this book. It is the third and last book of the Red Rising trilogy.

 

Summer Biannual Bibliothon 2016

I want to participate in the Summer Biannual Bibliothon 2016. It is a read a thon which will last from july 3 to july 9. You can find all the challenges and rules here . 

I have not participated in many read a thons before, and this is my first Biannual Bibliothon. I don’t think I can finish all of the books on my list. But I will try to read at least two books. We will see. I’m really looking forward to participate in the read a thon.

 

  • 1 Read The Group Book – The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

I want to participate in the group read, but I don’t own this book and I don’t really want to read it. So I will skip this challenge. Because I can’t read 5 books in one week.

  • 2 Free Choice/ Wild Card Book

Golden Son by Pierce Brown

This is the book I am currently reading. And I want to finish it.

  •  3 Read a Book Off of the Host’s List of Recommendations

More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

I choose More Happy Than Not from the list. I have wanted to read this book for a while. I hope I have time to start this book.

 

  • 4 Read a Book With Your Favorite Mythical Creature

The Moorigad Dragon by Debra Kristi

I had to choose a book I already own. And this was on my kindle. It is free on Amazon. I think this book has something to do with dragons, because of the title. Dragons are cool. All mythical creatures are my favorite, I can’t choose just one.

  • 5 Read a Book You’ve Been Putting Off Picking Up

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

So I have been wanting to read this book for so long. It will be starting the read a thon with this book.

  • 6 Read a Book from an Author You’ve Never Read Before

More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

I doubled this challenge and chose More Happy than not. It is Adam Salveras first book. And I think it is the only book that is out from him.

  • 7 Read a Book in a Different Format than You Usually Read

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

I doubled this challenge too. I often read both paper books and on my kindle. And I am not new to audiobooks either. So I choose Illumina because how this book is written is different from what I have read before. Every page looks different. And the layout of the book is really cool and  interesting.
