Favourite Books of 2013

Hey guys! This post might be a little late for some of you, since over here where I live it’s already the 3rd, but it’s probably still the 2nd somewhere out there. Anyways, as promised, my 13 favourite books of 2013! So let’s start off with my favourites. Now just to clarify, these weren’t published in 2013, just the books I’ve read in 2013.

Hey hey hey guess who finally got a new laptop! Evidently this means can now do book reviews again! I’ll probably be reviewing the entire Divergent series, and also I have two posts coming up soon, one talking about the foreshadowing of Insurgent, although this will come much later, and another listing my Top 13 Favourite and Top 13 Least Favourite Books of 2013 which I’ll probably publish end of the year. Everything else will be coming out next year probably. 

Also, since I didn’t finish updating you guys on my Read - A -Thon, I’ll take the chance to do it now! So I didn’t actually manage to read all the books I wanted to. I read everything except for The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel. So in the end I read a total of 1745 pages out of 2332 pages, and thus completed 4/6 challenges, failing both in reading a book that has been on my shelf the longest, and in reading +300 pages a day. Anyways, I enjoyed re-reading the Divergent series, which I’m sure you guys know by now, so I will definitely be talking about this in a future post. 

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it, and if not, Happy Holidays! Bye!

Read - A - Thon Updates #3

And now for Day 3 of my Read - A - Thon updates!

Pages Read: 917/2332
Books Read: 2/5
Finished Reading: Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, Divergent by Veronica Roth
Currently Reading: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Challenges Completed: 2/6
read a classic
• read a 500+ page book
re-read a book
• read a book that’s been on your shelf the longest
• finish a series
• read 300 pages a day

Sadly I didn’t get to hit my 300 page goal today. I came close - I read 295 pages. I wanted to read more but then I got distracted and then afterwards I fell asleep. Go me … But anyways that was almost 300 pages so I think I’ll just count it in.

So I’m on the second book in the Divergent series, and I just want to say - has anyone realized how foreshadowing this book is? I think I’ll make a post about this sometime soon but seriously. It was just … wow. Anyways, that’s all! Bye!

Read - A - Thon Updates #2

Time for Day 2 of my Read - A - Thon updates!

Pages Read: 311/2332
Books Read: 1/ 5
Finished Reading: Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
Currently Reading: Divergent by Veronica Roth

Challenges Completed: 1/6
read a classic
• read a 500+ page book
• re-read a book

AAAAND I’M BACK! Unfortunately I still can’t write reviews because my laptop’s broken ;;_;; anyways next week I’ll be doing a Read-a-Thon, that will involve me completing a series of challenges, which are:

• read a classic
• read a 500+ page book
• re-read a book
• read a book that’s been on your shelf the longest
• finish a series
• listen to an audiobook
• read 300 pages a day

so I’ll be attempting all of these EXCEPT the audiobook one cause I don’t have access to audiobooks so.

Anyways for next week I’ll be read the books shown above, which should complete all the challenges.

So firstly I’m gonna be reading J.M. Barrie’s ‘Peter Pan’, which takes care of the ‘read a classic’ challenge. I just bought this copy like two days ago and it’s part of the new Puffin Chalk and the cover is absolutely gorgeous I swear.

And then I’ll be reading the entire Divergent series by Veronica Roth which should take care of the ‘finish a series’ challenge and ‘re-read a book’ challenge since I’ll be re-reading the entire series. It also qualifies for the ‘read a 500+ page book series’ since both Insurgent and Allegiant have more than 500 pages. 

And lastly, ‘The Clan of the Cave Bear’ by Jean M. Auel which I got at a book sale at my church about 4 - 5 years ago. I haven’t touched it since, so this one pretty much covers the ‘read a book that’s been on your shelf the longest’ challenge, as well as the ‘read a 500+ page book series’ challenge.

Aaand the total number of pages read will be 2332, so that means I’ll be reading about an average of 333 pages a day, which completes the ‘read 300 pages a day’ challenges.

And that is my reading list for next week! I’ll try to keep you guys updated and wish me luck! Bye!

HIATUS.

So I’ve been insanely busy for the past few weeks and I really don’t think I can keep up with all the reviews I have to write and stuff, so I’ll probably be on hiatus until the end of this year. I might come on occasionally for a book review or stuff, but don’t expect much from me until December. 

This months books!
