I’ve decided to start doing monthly posts about the different things I bought or received as gifts each month. I know a lot of people do monthly book hauls but I don’t always let myself buy lots of books so I thought this might be interesting.
I did buy some books in August:
GUYS GUYS GUYS THERE’S A POKEMON GO BOOK TAG. LOOK HERE IT IS.
If you’ve read my last few posts, you might have noticed I’m a little obsessed with Pokemon at the moment. I mean, I’ve always been obsessed with Pokemon – it was all-encompassing in my childhood, even more so than Harry Potter – but right now, with Pokemon Go taking over the world, my obsession has come back with a vengeance.
I haven’t been tagged for this but when I saw it on Nazahet’s blog, Read Diverse Books, I obviously had to do it! It was originally created by Aentee at Read at Midnight (she also created the awesome graphics for this tag!).
Over the last couple of days, I’ve been thinking about what books to read next week, when BookTubeAThon starts: a challenge where you attempt to read 7 books in 7 days (PAH, not gonna happen). Despite my pessimism, I am going to give it a shot, and here are some books I’m going to try out for the additional challenges Ariel Bissett has set us.
REALITY BOY BY A. S. KING.
This is for the ‘Read a book with yellow on the cover’ challenge, as you can see.
I wanted to use this week to try and get through the books I was really excited about when I got them, and Reality Boy is one of them. It’s about a boy who was on a reality TV show as a toddler and what his dysfunctional life is like now.
I haven’t been tagged for this but saw Jessica at The Awkward Book Blogger‘s post and decided to join in the fun.
1. BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2016?
Wonder by R. J. Palacio.
Hi all! I’ve been so quiet on here…
You’re probably sick of my excuses about a reading slump, but seriously, it’s really bad! I do think I’m coming out of it a bit though as I’ve picked up Stormbird by Conn Igguldsen and seem to be getting on OK. I thought, though, that I’d participate in this year’s BookTubeAThon to help me kick it.
Also, I’ve been playing Pokemon Go and that doesn’t leave much time for reading.
So, apologies in advance, because this month I have been a piss-poor bookaholic.
I think I was all booked-out after a very successful reading month in May, and for most of this month I’ve been avoiding books completely (except I’m rereading Deathly Hallows at the mo and LOVING it). (They’ve just come back from Godric’s Hollow. It was AWESOME.)
So in June, I read a meagre total of… 4 books!
1. Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness.
WWW Wednesday is a book meme hosted by Taking on a World of Words. This is where you have to answer the following questions every Wednesday:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
As I’m in a bit of a reading slump, not much is holding my attention, so I have a few books on the go:
Sofia Khan is Not Obliged by Ayisha Malik.
The Boy Who Could See Demons by Carolyn-Jess Cooke.
