Hiatus (again)

Hey guys! Soooo, how have you been??

Wow, I just logged in BL and it feels like forever ago since my last post.... There are so many personal stuff that kept me from blogging and most importantly from reading. But alas the hiatus is over!

So October is the month to read scary fiction and I think I nailed that! Surprise review to come! 

I have many updates coming, so fair warning I will spam the home page!!

Cheers,

-M.

Booklikes-opoly! Turn #2 + Special Roll Day!

It took me forever to sort this one out! The double rolls and the special squares made this one hell of a turn!!

I slowed down the animation for the consequent steps and I really hope I didn't make any mistakes playing this one out. 

 

I haven't selected any books yet, but most of them will be short as I want to fit them in the readathon!

 

Here are the boxes I landed on this turn: (in case you don't want to wait for the animation)

◈box 9: fantasy/fairy tale tag,

◈box 18: pub date 2006, 2011, 2013, 2014 or car on the cover,

◈box 27: author's initials found in "Tarzan" or tree on the cover,

◈box 34: tag middle grade/YA or toy/child on the cover,

◈box 2:character gets shot/main character knows how to handle a gun

 

I am so glad with the last square as I started the game late and everyone is so far ahead! I'll take a look at the players' banks in the discussion thread in order to choose a player with whom to share the "BL" square result.

Piggy Bank: 33$ (3$ from Coraline + 10$ from the BL square)

 

Cheers,

-M.

Hour 3 - Cover from memory Mini-Challenge

This is a fun one! 

Imagine a book. 

Easy. Of course it's a Harry Potter one. I went with the complete edition as it was easier in Paint - voilá:

LOL - close enough!

Hour 0 – Opening Survey

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

In Netherlands, a small town called Nijmegen.


2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

This year I decided to not plan ahead my stack pile - just read.


3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

They are called "Pindarotsjes" and they are basically nuts with a chocolate coating- they are delicious!


4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

Espresso lover bibliophile!


5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?

This is my third readathon but the only one so far that I have decided to read the full 24 hours! We'll see how this works! The different thing will be that I do not have a specific list of books I want to read today. I will try to finish some of the books I had on my 'currently reading' shelf for too long!

 


Best of luck to all participating!

Happy reading!!

Cheers,

-M.

Booklikes-opoly! Roll #1

I decided to join in the fun too! And I'm very lucky too as today appears to be a roll day!!

Going over numerous posts, I caved to this game, which is both well thought and a very fun way to tackle our neverending TBRs!

 

A few links first (more for me to keep my posts organized)

General FAQ's

Main Gameplay

Special Squares

And of course the board: 

Dice used found here.

And behold my adorable "pawn":

(I am addicted to these cuties!)

 

Sooooo............

*drum roll*

 

I went with a gif to describe each move as it seemed easier at first - it ended up taking way too much time. The end result was satisfying though, so I might keep it up!

 

Cheers,

-M.
