Alphabethon

Round 3 of Alphabethon has started already and I didn’t even realise! This is a readathon based on reading the letters of the alphabet. This round is ‘c’ so basically any books where the title, the author’s first or last name starts with ‘c’. Twitter is here and blog post is here. This round runs from 31st July – 6th August. I looked at the books I read yesterday and none of them apply fortunately.

Challenges

  1. Read a book with three Cs. (Title, Author’s first name, and last name all begin with C)
  2. Read a book with a MC (main Character) whose name starts with C.
  3. Read a book with a C setting. ( Town, City, State, etc. begins with C)
  4. Read a book that has a picture of something on the front or back cover that begins with C.
  5. Read your book in a spot other than the Couch that begins with C for a total of an hour. (example: car, closet, at a counter)

Tash Hearts Tolstoy

Tash Hearts TolstoyAfter a shout-out from one of the Internet’s superstar vloggers, Natasha “Tash” Zelenka finds herself and her obscure, amateur web series, Unhappy Families, thrust into the limelight: She’s gone viral.

Her show is a modern adaptation of Anna Karenina—written by Tash’s literary love Count Lev Nikolayevich “Leo” Tolstoy. Tash is a fan of the forty thousand new subscribers, their gushing tweets, and flashy Tumblr GIFs. Not so much the pressure to deliver the best web series ever.

And when Unhappy Families is nominated for a Golden Tuba award, Tash’s cyber-flirtation with Thom Causer, a fellow award nominee, suddenly has the potential to become something IRL—if she can figure out how to tell said crush that she’s romantic asexual.

Tash wants to enjoy her newfound fame, but will she lose her friends in her rise to the top? What would Tolstoy do?

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me

The Wall of Winnipeg and MeVanessa Mazur knows she’s doing the right thing. She shouldn’t feel bad for quitting. Being an assistant/housekeeper/fairy godmother to the top defensive end in the National Football Organization was always supposed to be temporary. She has plans and none of them includes washing extra-large underwear longer than necessary.

But when Aiden Graves shows up at her door wanting her to come back, she’s beyond shocked.

For two years, the man known as The Wall of Winnipeg couldn’t find it in him to tell her good morning or congratulate her on her birthday. Now? He’s asking for the unthinkable.

What do you say to the man who is used to getting everything he wants?
