Reading Diary | October 2017

Oct, 5th - 20:45
Finished the first book of the month: The Glass Town Game, the newest release by Catherynne M. Valente. It's a fantasy novel about the Brontë siblings. Basically, they are sucked into their own game. A bit like Jumanji if you like but the whole book is filled with references to their novels and their characters and it's a fantastic read.
I'm also making my way through My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent and I can tell you now this is gonna be a difficult one for me. It disgustes me most of the time and I've cried several times but at the same time I wanna keep reading because I wanna know where the story is heading.

Autumn Readathon | Wrap-Up

The Autumn readathon started just as the Dewey's readathon ended. And this post is all about my progress during the week the readathon lasted. I've done things differently in this wrap-up. Instead of updating everytime I finished a book, I did updates for each day and counted how many pages I read.

Dewey's Readathon | 2017 Progress Round II

Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon | TBR 2017 Round II

It is that time of the year again. It is Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon time! I wasn't sure about participating this second time around but I couldn't resist. I always have an incredibly good time, not only sharing my reading during 24 hours straight but also keeping with other people's reading progresses. So, this Saturday (the 21st) you'll find me between the pages of many books.
I have already started Uni but I'll take the day off because I truly want to dedicate all my time to read. I went for short novels and a picture book this time as to not burn myself too much during the day:
- Franklin's Flying Bookshop by Jen Campbell. Perfect when one is starting to notice the tiredness. - Tin Man by Sarah Winman.  - The Tobacconistby Robert Seethaler. - Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng.
As always, I'll write another post where I'll be updating my reading and as always, I would love for you to link in the comments where you'll be updating yours.

Autumn Readathon | TBR

Hello guys! Long time, no see! I haven't blogged since April or May but I wanted to make a quick comeback during the rest of October because there are a few readathons happening right now which I'll be participating on. This post is all related to Mercedes' readathon which will run from Sunday 22nd to Saturday 28th of October. She announced it when she reached 30K subscribers on her youtube channel - which I recommend you all go and subscribe to because she's one of my favourites.
