Good evening and HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL! I cannot believe that the season is upon us already. Time has been flying, but I’m very eager for fall! I can hardly contain my excitement for pumpkin pie, Halloween, all the spooky decorations!
In honor of the first day of the season, I will be doing the Fall Book Tag, created by Bionic Book Worm.
Let’s get right into it! 😀 Continue reading “The Fall Book Tag”
Hello my lovely readers! A couple of days ago was the last day of #TheReadingQuest, which is a reading challenge I participated in that was created by Aentee over at Read at Midnight.
For this challenge, I selected the pathway of the knight, but unfortunately, I did not complete my challenge as I hoped I would. I completed only three of my five challenges on the knight pathway, plus one side quest.
I expected to get through way more than only four books, but back to school season was even more hectic than usual this year and sadly, I had very little time to read as a result. Also, the last two challenges I had to do for the knight were a book with a weapon on the cover and a book with a movie/TV adaptation. I had very few options for books that fit these prompts, and I just wasn’t in the mood for any of them. I am very much of a mood reader, so I’m thinking that reading challenges with very specific TBRs aren’t for me.
Despite the fact that I didn’t do as well as I had hoped and expected, I still had a lot of fun participating in the challenge, especially because of all the other wonderful readers and bloggers that I met and chatted about books with. As a new blogger, I really appreciate the great opportunities this reading challenge had! Continue reading “#TheReadingQuest Wrap-Up”
