Cramathon TBR- Dec 2016

So it's been a while, hasn't it. University has just been crazy and I have not really had time to read or blog but I now off for Christmas. Although I have a few deadlines and Harry Potter society stuff to do, I hope that I will be posting on here again soon. Anyway, I thought that I would post a Cramathon TBR which is a readathon hosted by WhittyNovels and Aprililus Maximus. The readathon starts on 16th December at 12 am and finished at 12 am on the 23rd December with the aim to read as much as possible to complete your Goodreads goal. I have already completed my Goodreads goal but need to get back into reading so thought this would be the way to do it. There are challenges that you need to complete and I am going to talk about them now. So let's get started...

Challenges

1. Read a book under 200 pages


Marly's GhostMarly's Ghost by David Levithan- I think that it is around 160 pages so definitely fits this theme and it is almost a retelling of a Christmas Carol so seems like a perfect fit. 










2. Read 2 books in 24 hours

Hopefully, I can read two of these books in 24 hours. It seems doable. 

3. Read a book set in a different country than where you live


You Know Me WellYou Know Me Well by David Levithan and Nina LaCour- It is set in America, I live in England. I am also excited to read this so...











4. Read a book you've been putting off/have been meaning to read forever 

To Kill a Mockingbird (To Kill a Mockingbird #1)To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee- I have wanted to read this book since I bought it last year and I pretty sure I said that I wanted to finish it this year. As you can see it has not happened yet but there is still time. 










5. Read a book with pictures 

Challenger DeepI am currently reading Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman which is quite a difficult read as I do relate to some aspects of the story but it features illustrations throughout so hopefully I can finish it during the week. 









6. Read a graphic novel

I am going to be reading 2 single issues instead and they are Great Lake Avengers #2 and Champions #3 so I hope they count. 

7. Read 7 books


If I read all the books on my TBR, that is 6 books and if I count the books that I am currently reading then that is 7 books so I would have completed this challenge. 

OK, so that is my Cramathon TBR. Are you planning on joining the readathon? Do you want to read any books mentioned in this post? Leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon,

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
