My last update on this reading challenge was in August which seriously feels like forever ago. Here’s where I was at then.
Here are the books I’ve read since then to fulfil even more of these challenges!
These books fulfilled 11 new prompts for the reading challenge. ‘Nimona’ by Noelle Stevenson fulfilled the challenge to read a book about a villain/antihero. ‘To Kill a Kingdom’ by Alexandra Christo fulfills the challenge to read a book club book which a read as the group book for the Mythathon. ‘It Wasn’t Me’ by Dana Alison Levy fulfills the challenge to read a mystery. ‘Anne of Green Gables: The Graphic Novel’ Adapted by Mariah Marsden. ‘Maybe in Another Life’ by Taylor Jenkins Reid fulfills the challenge read a chick lit. ‘Daisy Jones and The Six’ by Taylor Jenkins Reid fulfills the challenge to read a historical fiction. ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany fulfils the challenge to read a play. ‘Strange the Dreamer’ by Laini Taylor Fulfils the challenge to read a book based on your Hogwarts house. ‘The Raven Boys’ by Maggie Stiefvater fulfils the Paranormal challenge. ‘The Mermaids Voice Returns in This One’ by Amanda Lovelace fulfils the non fiction challenge. Finally, ‘The Princess Saves Herself in This One’ by Amanda Lovelace fulfils the Empowering challenge.
I can’t want to keep working on this challenge for the rest of the year!
Now that I’ve added these books heres how it looks.
I’ve decided to try something new in the realm of weekly reading. I was feeling as though my weekly update posts were getting really repetitive and I figured if I was getting bored writing them, then people would be getting bored reading them.
Instead I am giving VLOGGING a go, now I’ll be the first to admit that this will probably never be my best vlog ever, but I am still new to this and excited to see where it goes!
It would be amazing if you could check it out!
I know I totally need to work on thumbnails, but hopefully we get there!
Last week was a snail paced reading week and this week is looking much the same. Being in the last week of term (YAY) means more time doing work things and less time doing reading things. But with the downside comes the upside of holidays and travel and more time to relax and read.
I am still making my way through ‘The Iron Trial’ By Holly Black and Cassandra Clare which I only have about 2 hours left on! I am also sitting at just over 100 pages through ‘Sky in the Deep’ By Adrienne Young. I have definitely gotten to a point where I am eager to see where things are going to go. I definitely want to finish both of these book this week before heading off to Europe next week!
Over a week has definitely elapses since my last weekly update and what a busy time it was! I ended up going to camp with a different class than my own for 4 days last week which was very unexpected but an absolute blast! Even though it was a busy time I still managed to finish a book!
I was luckily still able to complete ‘Everblaze’ By Shannon Messenger, the 3rd book in the Keeper of Lost Cities series.
I am really enjoying this series and its definitely one I hope to complete before the end of the year – although I will be really sad when I don’t have anymore books to read in this series.
It’s a quick read being a middle grade novel, they are quite long, being 600+ pages each, but I could not recommend it more, especially if you love a fantasy series but are looking for an easy read.
I am continuing to listen to ‘The Iron Trial’ by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. I only have around 4 hours left on this audiobook – which I am borrowing from my library – so I should be able to complete it this week!
After completing ‘Everblaze’ I was unsure about what I was going to read next. I changed around what I thought I was going to do at the end of May when I posted my June TBR and I am now moving into ‘Sky in the Deep’ By Adrienne Young instead of reading ‘Empire of storms’ By Sarah J. Maas first. I am still really enthralled by Norse Mythology, I don’t know if ‘Sky in the Deep’ has much mythology in it, but being a Viking book I am hopeful.
This week is another busy week! I am doing some extra teaching this afternoon with a different class (so excited) as well as picking up my wedding dress and changing up my hair a bit – which means a longer appointment. We are also in the process of enquiring about wedding cakes and sending out our invites. Along with all this we are preparing for our trip to Europe which we leave for in 13 days!
What a crazy week it has been! Work has been crazy hectic as well as a jam packed weekend full of wedding and travel related activities, I am genuinely exhausted, and its only Monday!
I finally finished reading ‘Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sword of Summer’ By Rick Riordan.
I love mythology so it really didn’t take long for me to get through this read.
Hopefully I can get to the sequel soon.
This week I am reading two middle grade books, I’ve picked up ‘Everblaze’ by Shannon Messenger, the third book in the Keeper of Lost Cities series. I am about 120 pages in and really hope to finish it this week. I have also picked up ‘The Iron Trial’ By Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. I am currently listening to this on the Borrow Box app after borrowing it from my local library.
