Book Blogger Hop: Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges?

 

I ran across the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week they have a new book related question you can answer. If you are interested in finding out more, the next weeks question, and/or participating then stop by the Book Blogger Hop page.

 

This weeks question: Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges?


Of course I do ^_^ ! I’ve not done readathons, since my life doesn’t allow time for that yet. But, I have and do participate in reading challenges each year.

 

The first year I started blogging (2014) I didn’t do any challenges. I was just getting my feet wet and starting to dive into the blogger world.

 

In (2015) I participated in three reading challenges. I was dipping my feet in. (2015) – The Series That Never Ends, New To Me, & Library Love.

 

Then in (2016) I added a few more challenges, just to give myself more of a challenge. (2016) – March Take Control of Your TBR, New To Me, Pick Your Genre, Read My Own Dame Books, and Finish The Series.

 

And, now in (2017) I’m hosting my own reading challenge the Library Love and participating in several challenges new and old. (2017) – Library Love, New To Me, Pick Your Genre, Blogger Shame, New Releases, Backlist Reader, & March Take Control of Your TBR. 

 

I LOVE reading challenges. Setting that goal and meeting it or going over gives me a sense of achievement. I like the challenge. I like trying out new challenges and participating in old ones that all connect into what I read. 
 

 

Do you participate in readathons and/or reading challenges?
What’s your favorite reading challenge you’ve ever done?
Do you have ones you do every year that you like?

I would love to hear from you!

The Book Blogger Platform
The Book Blogger Platform - Barb Drozdowich Straight to the point. Lots of useful information. Great tips. A precious tool for book bloguers and authors. I haven't seen the videos yet (the book as links to author's videos), but I'm sure they will add value to the book.

Just A Reminder & Valete!

I can be found at the following sites other than Booklikes:

 

Wordpress - https://bookstooge.wordpress.com/

 

Librarything - https://www.librarything.com/profile/BookstoogeLT

 

Blogger - http://bookstooge.blogspot.com/

 

 

 

I am most social on Wordpress, with non-review posts, etc. Librarything is for cataloguing and I am a member of the Green Dragon where I have a thread devoted to all things Bookstooge. Blogger is more of just a list of all books read and reviewed; without a "like" button I don't spend much time there.

 

If you haven't already, I highly encourage you to have a backup site for all your reviews. Because you never know when....[you fill in the blank]

.What I'm Reading | March 2017.

This post can originally found at MissKatiEllen.

 

Welcome to my March post, I’ve been feeling rather determined to finish about three books a month and so far I’ve been managing this. If hope to get a bit more in but I struggled with one of my books.

 

 

I’ve really been enjoying Laini Taylors series, the second book starts off almost where we left it. Karou with all her memories back and living in hell. This book is set in the other world and the narrative jumps between her and Avika, as well as random seraph and chimaera. I felt this was a nice touch as it makes the story more grounded, more real. Seeing the war through those not directly evolved.

 

As well as Days of Blood and Starlight I also read the short story, Night of Cake and Puppets. Zuanna and Mik both appear in the second book, providing so much needed stress relief, but this short story is just for them. How they met, it’s a cute little story that takes place during the first book, after Zuanna has discovered the truth and before Karou disappears completely.

 

I don’t know why but I had quite high hopes for The Picture of Dorian Gray. I think because there have been various adaptions of the story and character I expected a bit more to the story. I did enjoy it on the whole, but there were the odd moments where I felt like I was skim reading. It was very descriptive heavy, which I found unfortunate.
