July ReadAThon | FuckAThon!

I am trying to participate in another readathon this month. So far… I’m behind. What’s new with that though. This month I’m participating in the Fuck-A-Thon that is hosted by Noria at Noria Reads on Youtube. The Reading Challenge has prompts that basically are there to challenge the social norms. We have all month to read these books, so I need to get on that. There is also a group book as well! I have put my TBR down below and also attached Noria’s original video. I’m thinking about vlogging for this challenge, but considering I’m already behind that might be a lot haha. What do you think of this new reading challenge?! Let me know down in the comments or on my video! Until next time,

Vacation TBR – Cruise!!

It’s time for the first vacation of the year!!!! I’m so excited!! If you follow my vlog then you know how much I love to travel, also if you follow my blog you’ve seen some previous posts as well. For this vacation I will be going on a cruise with my mom as well as some family friends, so I typically just call this vacation the “family” vacation. We will be spending 10 days on the Celebrity Reflection going to the Caribbean and I can’t wait to have the reading time associated with vacationing. So that leads me to my vacation TBR!!
  1. This is kind of a cheat because I’m already almost done with it, but it is Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
  2. American Street by Ibi Zoboi, which I think I have included on all of my vacation TBRs thus far and I have not finished it
  3. Strange The Dreamer by Lani Taylor
  4. Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
  5. The 14th Colony by Steve Berry
  6. And if I get around to it as in if I have been spending all of my time out by the pool, I will read This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
Of course I will be reading all of these books on my Kindle Oasis while I’m gone because packing books takes up too much room and I’m already an over packer, so my Kindle and I get a long amazingly!  All of the books are linked as well! Do you like to read on vacation? What are some of your favorite vacation reads?! I seem to always read a Cotton Malone book on every trip. Let me know what you think! Until next time,

BookTube-A-Thon 2017!

Hey everyone!! I’m participating in BookTube-A-Thon 2017!! This is an annual reading challenge that is hosted by Ariel Bissett as well as other BookTubers to make reading, video, twitter, and instagram challenges.

This year is my first year participating and I’m really excited to do it. I’ve had this blog for a long time now, and I’m just now really finding the community that is around books. If you have been following me on twitter you can see I have been reading books, but I have not been writing my reviews (don’t worry I haven’t been making videos either).

Here I’m going to post the BookTube-A-Thon intro video, as well as my TBR (To Be Read) video! Please join us in doing this and make sure to follow me on social media!!

I got some of my books on Book Depository as well as on Amazon Kindle. Some of them I just wanted in print though we all know I love my e-reader. I’ve got some unrelated posts coming, but I’m super pumped to get started on this!

Here’s my Book List!!
1. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon – A person on the cover
2. The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater – Read a hyped book
3. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – Finish in one day
4. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon – Someone very different from you
5. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo – Read completely Outdoors
6. The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon – Read a book because of the cover
7. Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index by Julie Israel – Read Seven Books
8. American Street by Ibi Zoboi
9. The Selection Series by Kiera Cass

Until next time
