A weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. It’s been on hiatus for a couple of weeks (and I was too busy to write a post anyway) but it’s back and with a good category!
Now I like TBRs. For readathons, reading challenges, season TBRs, monthly TBRs, etc. I have a March TBR and a TBR for my newest readathon which is scheduled to post this week (Fempowerathon here) and then I saw thriceread make a post about Beat the Backlist and the temptation was too great! This is a yearly challenge, much like Mount TBR on Goodreads, where the focus is on books published before 2017 and is hosted by Novel Knight. For this challenge, I do have the option of including all the books I’ve read this year that qualify for the challenge but I think that would be too easy, so I’m only going to do books I already own, published before 2017, starting from today (13th March 2017). Goodreads shelf here.
FemPowerAThon is a readathon which is focused on female empowerment and so the challenges are focused around that. The readathon spans 19th March-26th March. Twitter
So many challenges, I might be doubling up on them as I’m still travelling so I can’t read nine books in a week (though it would be fun to try!).
This blog meme happens every Friday, hosted by Freda’s Voice, where you share an excerpt of a book you’ve read.
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It’s that simple.
I’ve gone for Gives Light by Rose Christo which is my favourite book this week!
Adapting to a brand new culture is the least of Skylar’s qualms. Because Skylar’s mother did not die a peaceful death. Skylar’s mother was murdered eleven years ago on the Nettlebush Reserve. And her murderer left behind a son.
And he is like nothing Skylar has ever know.
In terms of numbers of books I read, February was a good month for it. In terms of books I enjoyed, February wasn’t such a good month for me, which was a shame. I did get to some of my books on my Mount TBR list (as in I bought them before 1st January 2017) and they were ones I have been meaning to read for a while. I took part in two readathons this month
I took part in two readathons this month Because Dragons Readathon and TimeHopAThon which were unfortunately at the same time but I really enjoyed them both and would definitely consider doing them in future (maybe with more overlap next time).
