Readathon Wrap Up: #SundayYAthon

So over the last week, I have taken part in two readathons which ran from the 28th August to 1st September which is #SundayYAthon. The SundayYAthon had three challenges which can be picked from the following picture. My TBR was posted on Twitter so you can see that here: 

So let's get started to see my progress...

I ended up reading 4 books as part of the readathon but only three of those books were on my TBR.
The first book that I finished was A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin which counted for the free choice feature of the readathon. I had already read over 400 pages before the readathon but I decided that I really wanted to finish it so thus the first book was completed. I really enjoyed A Game of Thrones although it was a little bit out of my comfort zone and I liked it so much that I am currently reading A Clash of Kings.  










After I finished A Game of Thrones, I moved on to Monstress which is a graphic novel set in 1900s China with a POC main protagonist which counted as a diverse read. I also really enjoyed this one, giving it 4 stars and for a fantasy graphic novel, I think the world building was done well. To be honest, I am going to love any book that has talking cats anyway so...











The third book that I read was Wing Jones by Katherine Webber which has been a book that was been highly praised since its release in January which is why it completed by Recommended Read category. Again I really enjoyed Wing Jones especially seeing her character develop as a person and the description of all the food in the book that I just want to eat. All of the characters were also well developed and just so likeable so like everyone else recommended me to read Wing Jones, I will now recommend it to you. 








The fourth and final book that I completed for the readathon was Moonrise by Sarah Crossan which comes out this week on Thursday. Moonrise is an emotional story about Jo whose brother is on death row in America which as you can guess makes a gripping story and you should see a review of this book soon on my blog. 












So that is my Wrap Up of #Sundayyathon. What did you read this weekend? Did you take part in a readathon last week?

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…

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

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…

I hadn't heard of the Curse of Time when I received an email to be part of the blog tour but being a person who loves to read YA fantasy I knew I had to give it a read. I really enjoyed The Curse of Time and it is a real…
