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, 

Amy

On Turning 22

So on Wednesday (today when this goes up) I will be 22. *is currently listening to 22 by Taylor Swift* Obviously. The thing about turning 22 is the fact that you have just turned 21. I say just it was a whole year ago. 21 which has so many meanings behind it which is what I mentioned in my post last year so turning 22 feels kind of meh.21 felt to me last year as to be some big thing like my whole life was going to change. I was graduating from university after so much in my life felt like it was going to change.But the thing is it didn't.I stayed for a Masters in History. At the same university with people that I have know for some year and new ones and of course the people the people that graduated last year ain't there anymore and I do miss them. Things are still kind of the same.Turning 22 feels like it's in the middle. It's not special. It doesn't hold special meaning. It's just itself. This is how I feel like 2019.2019 is such a middling year for me. I'…

Favourite Books Of The Year (2018)

As it is now 2019 I think it is time to share my favourite books of 2019. I read over 120 books last year, 125 to be exact so there is a lot to choose from so I will be doing a top 10 with 7 honourable mentions so let's get started...

Honourable Mentions:

















Number 10: Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt 


Theatrical was just so fun. I feel in love with everything in the book and loved the romance. I really enjoyed the whole idea of going backstage in the theatre so I would definitely recommend. 
















Number 9: Lord Of Shadows by Cassandra Clare



I am more than happy to say that I was a massive fan of Lady Midnight but there was something about Lord of Shadows that I devoured and loved. That ending also broke me so I hope that I can read Queen of Air And Darkness in 2019.  













Number 8: Are We All Lemmings And Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne

I did really enjoy this book and thought that it was an interesting look at mental illness. I love Holly Bourne anyway so of course, I was going to love this book. I want …

Book Review: Ascension by Victor Dixen

*I am reviewing this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. *

Title: Ascension Author: Victor Dixen Publisher: Hot Key Books Source: Readers First Rating: 5/5 stars
(Amazon|Goodreads)



Book Summary:
Six girls, six boys. Each in the two separate bays of a single spaceship. They have six minutes each week to seduce and to make their choices, under the unblinking eye of the on-board cameras. They are the contenders in the Genesis programme, the world's craziest speed-dating show ever, aimed at creating the first human colony on Mars.

Leonor, an 18 year old orphan, is one of the chosen ones. 
She has signed up for glory.
She has signed up for love.
She has signed up for a one-way ticket.

Even if the dream turns to a nightmare, it is too late for regrets.

Book Review: 

I was excited to read Ascension as Hot Key were describing this as Love Island in space and much like the rest of the UK, I have been hooked by the show that has just finished. This description is so accurate bu…
