Discworld Group Reads


For those who haven't seen this yet and for anybody who'd like to join:


The Discworld group is going to read the books from the series in publication order, beginning on September 15.  As from December 1, we're planning on a bimonthly schedule (alternating with the bimonthly Flat Book Society reads), but of course, with Halloween Bingo approaching and a Flat Book Society read already scheduled for September 1, there needed to be some accommodation.


(Of course, we could have gone the Granny Weatherwax route --

"Granny’s implicit belief that everything should get out of her way extended to other witches, very tall trees and, on occasion, mountains"

... especially what with Wyrd Sisters, which this quote happens to be from, being the official Halloween Bingo group read ... but we decided to play nice.  Besides, some of us are going to participate in the Halloween Bingo group read in addition, and anyway, who needs this kind of stress in their lives?!)


Bonus, however, for those who are participating in both the Discworld group read and Halloween Bingo: The first Discworld book, The Colour of Magic, also qualifies for a number of Halloween Bingo squares, including Supernatural, Spellbound, Relics and Curiosities, and Cryptozoologist.


So excluding the Halloween Bingo group read, here's the prospective reading schedule for the first couple of books in the Discworld group:


September 15, 2018: The Colour of Magic (Discworld, #1; Rincewind #1)

December 1, 2018: The Light Fantastic (Discworld, #2; Rincewind #2)

February 1: 2019: Equal Rites (Discworld, #3; Witches, #1)

April 1, 2019: Mort (Discworld, #4; Death, #1)

June 1, 2019: Sourcery (Discworld, #5; Rincewind #3)


Needless to say, even outside the bingo reads, rogue buddy reads are going to happen as well and are expressly encouraged.


Come and join us -- the more, the merrier!

What To Expect (When You're Expecting Bookish Posts)

It's been a long time since I posted a good quality review and that saddens me. But the truth of the matter is that I just haven't been reading as much as I should like to be... And I am horrible at time management. I just realized that I hadnt updated my description for TWO YEARS... 

As a way to get back into my bookish blog I am making a ,it's of things to expect out of my blog, and I'm giving a rough schedule of what to expect in the weeks to come.


-book hauls (as is appropriate)

-monthly/weekly wrap ups (if possible)

-book comparison and contrast on Sunday

-if you like this you'll like this on Wednesday

-book reviews on Friday

(This is a rough schedule. Please understand that sometimes time will not permit me to post.)


i will ill try my hardest to follow this and than you for being patient with me in my absence! ❤️

School Related Update!

I have made it through my first week of high school, all in one piece and without any major anxiety attack!! Even though the entire first day was just like one long attack, I had to talk myself out of them ever five minutes.

I'm hoping now that I'm settled in to get some reading done and some reviews up, and maybe post some random book related stuff!

I might even get to that tonight!

Week day updates will be nearly impossible seeing as I have soccer, and for some reason history and science both in the same semester.  This means I'll be doing some major studying!  But I'm going to try to post ever Friday, Saturday and the occasional Sunday!
