Ahahahahaha I was fighting this gym at the train station and I could see someone else was fighting it at the same time and when we beat it some guy sauntered over, leaned in like he was offering me drugs and went, ‘So what team are you on?’
I love how Pokemon has just completely taken over again like it did when I was a kid. But this is a book blog, Emma, not a Pokemon Go blog. Keep your Sandshrews to yourself.
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.
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.
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.
May was a good month for me for reading! I read a lot of books and, for the most part, really enjoyed them.
1. The Confessions of Katherine Howard by Suzannah Dunn.
Premise: The novel explores Katherine Howard’s before and during her marriage to the notorious Henry VIII.
Dunn is quickly becoming a new favourite historical author of mine. Her writing has a very modern tone without taking away from the Tudor setting. I didn’t enjoy this as much as I enjoyed The Lady of Misrule and I was disappointed by the ending, as I wanted to see how she handled Katherine’s execution.
You won’t catch me, Karma, I think. I won’t do anything bad!
Paper Butterflies is a heart-wrenching tale of child abuse and how downright unfair life can be. I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Hey fellow bookworms! So I turned old a couple of weeks ago, and therefore have new books to show you, courtesy of my lovely family and friends!
I also ordered some books for myself in April, but they didn’t arrive until May so I’m including them in this book haul, hence why it’s humongous. I decided not to put descriptions for all of them as you’d probably get a bit bored of my rambling.
Now on to ALL THE BOOKS.
