Question #1: How has your taste in books progressed as you’ve gotten older?

My book taste has progressed very much. When I was little I enjoyed reading picture books such as a paper bag princess, a hungry caterpillar and Madeline. I then enjoyed reading chapter books at quite a young age. I read Nancy Drew, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dork Diaries, Caption Under Pants and Judy Moody books, at just the age of 8. I then caught myself reading fractured fairytales such as, whatever after, and the book series I still enjoy reading today, The Land Of Stories. Now, in the present, I enjoying reading Young Adult (YA) fantasy , distopian (Divergent, Hunger Games etc.) and comedy-romance (Let it Snow, Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares). This is the journey and process of my reading, and I’m still finding new books to this day!

Good Night Book Worms!

BookTubeAThon Day 3: Success or Failure? + Wrap Up!

I’m sad to say that today was and is the last day of BookTubeAThon 2013. I enjoyed it so much and I hope you guys did to!

Books:

Today I read over 200 pages of City of Bones and am LOVING IT! I love the relationship between Clary and Jace. I feel that they will end up as boyfriend and girlfriend (NO SPOILERS IN COMMENTS.). Although I am itching to find out what happens to Clarys’ mother. I feel that at this point they are moving away from the whole situation with her mother. I also don’t really understand what happened with Luke, I wish that they would’ve explained more about the vacation and that whole situation.

Twitter:

Sadly, today I had NO POWER in my house because of an ice storm. So, I could not participate in any sprints. But luckily now I have power!

Overall Rap-Up of BookTubeAThon:

This 3 days of BookTubeAThon have been a blast! It has been so nice seeing the booktuber community come together as one! Overall I read 3 books; Two Truths and A Lie, Let It Snow and (am still reading) City of Bones!

So, was today a Success or Failure? SUCCESS!

I’ve had so much fun participating in BookTubeAThon and I hope you have to!

Good Night Book Worms!

BookTubeAThon Day 2: Success or Failure?

I hope you had a good BookTubeAThon day (unlike me)! TBH, I was not in the mood for reading so I was a really big book worm lacker.

Books:

Today I finished the last story of Let it Snow and read 2 chapter of City of Bones (First book of the Mortal Instruments Series).

The last story of Let it Snow was cute, but sadly I wasn’t focused in it. I may have to do a re-read for it tomorrow.

City of Bones seems AMAZING! Then again, I’ve only read the first 2 chapters so I haven’t really formed an ABSOLUTE opinion (I’ll get a better opinion tomorrow, I hope).

Twitter:

I participated in a ton of sprinters! But sadly, I only read during the sprinters, so I read for about 2 hours 😦

Tommorow I hope to read a lot more! Which I probably will because there’s an ice storm coming in my area soon, so it’s going to be a skating rink outside tomorrow!

So, was today a Success or Failure: FAILURE!

Hope your enjoying BookTubeAThon so far!

Good Night Book Worms!

BookTubeAThon Day 1: Success or Failure?

I hope you have all been enjoy BookTubeAThon! Here is my update on what I read and MORE!

Books I Read:

Today I finished 2 books! I finished reading Two Truths and a Lie, as well as reading 2/3 of the stories in Let It Snow.

Two truths and a lie had a great ending. Needless to say, the book was quite boring (which was not a suprise, the 2nd was quite boring as well). Although, I enjoyed the flashbacks the most out of the first two. They explained alot which was helpful to us readers, in order to figure out more clues on who killed Sutton.

Let it Snow has been an amazing book for me to read. This holiday season I am going to read more “chill” books (rather then murder or death). In the first story of the book, I grasped the characters opinions in order to relate to my own life or similar experience. I loved both the boy and girl and the relation ship together. The second story was more difficult for me to grasp. I loved the romantic feel in the first story. The second story was more adventurous then romantic. The factor of adventure wasn’t a bad thing, nor if I wanted to read an adventurous novel I would not have chosen this book. Needless to say the relation “dude” and the other boy came together slowly, but surely. I love the aspect of the storys connecting at the “Waffle House”. I thought that it would have been so much better if the charcters from the first and second story come together.

Twitter:

I got a chance to participate with 3 sprinter activites. The first was 15 min., then 10 min., then 20 min. I read alot more then this on my own though. I go on twitter using my personal account but I am thinking of making a twitter account to connect with you guys (I’ll tell you when it’s up and running)!

So, was today a Success or a Faiure? SUCCESS!

I hope you are enjoying BookTubeAThon as much as I am!

Good Night Book Worms!
