Day 4. Yay. Okay wow, how have I been so busy lately? I don’t know but I have. The Hobbit was amazing guys and I’ve done so much college work today I’m basically caught up. Shame it can’t be said about the read-a-thon though, this has been a bad attempt on my behalf. I’ll try and finish Rock Hard today and start and finish The Unwords with it being a small poetry book.
I couldn’t really attempt this very well considering we don’t have any Christmas decorations in my house, well we do just they’re all in the loft and I doubt they’ll be down any time soon – with me not being young any more there isn’t much of an emphasis on Christmas in my household so we’ll probably have a tiny light up tree and that’s it. Also sorry the picture is blurry, it started to collapse!
Hello Day 3. I must apologise because I wont be able to make the twitter chat tonight as I’ll be just finishing watching The Hobbit around that time… I might catch the end of the chat, hopefully. I’ll be sure to let you know how amazing the movie is if I do turn up. I guess I didn’t do much better yesterday, you can blame watching The Expendables 2 on that, it was distracting and completely awesome.
For this challenge we had to fill in the blanks of the quotes with the words provided, I haven’t read this book nor did I bother to look up the quote and just too a gamble with the words until they made sense c: good luck all.
“Once upon a time, an Angel and a Devil fell in love. It did not end well.”
“She had been innocent once, a little girl playing with feathers on the floor of a devil’s lair.”
“…When I saw her smile I wondered what it would be like to make her smile…I thought it would be like the discovery of smiling.”
Day 2 is here guys! How awesome is that. I’ve been at college all day today, visited my old college and picked up all my art work – which was a lot – and then had to somewhat tidy my room to fit in all my work! There isn’t enough room so my mother has ordered me some new shelves so I can move my books onto them, I am so excited. I also had secret santa at college and Santa Danh gave me two Dr who books!
Guaranteed I didn’t read a lot yesterday but like I mentioned I kind of forgot this was going on, today will be better. Hopefully. Time for the mini challenge of Book Spine Poetry:
Today is the first day of the readathon and guess who totally forgot? Yes that is right, I forgot. I don’t know how when Faye emailed us with reminders, I just zone out from life every now and then. But cause I forgot and the whole theme of this readathon is supposed to be magical and Christmassy I’m taking magical in a very different way to everyone else. I’ve decided that the books I’m going to be reading throughout this magical time are as follows:
I bet you’re probably thinking “hey some of these don’t look too magical?” well this is where my difference comes in, these books are magical in the sense that “its magical I’m actually reading” cause I usually get really forgetful when I’m taking part in readathons and end up reading less than I do normally. In short I’m cheating. No wait wait I can actually think of how they all relate to magic.
Believe Like a Child – the magic of survival
Rock Hard – the magic amount of orgasms
The Last Witch – witches are magical
The Unwords – there’s something mystical and magical about this collection of poetry I’m sure.
So in short I hope to finish all four books and maybe start a fifth if I’m able. Happy reading guys & what do you plan to read?
Stopping by today to let you know of a Read-a-thon a lovely two months in advance so you can put this weekend aside and create a stack of books to zoom through.
Faye at A Daydreamers Thoughts is hosting “Magnificently Magic Read-A-Thon” as Christmas can be a very magical time of the year so this read-a-thon reflects all the wonder and magic that surrounds us whilst we’re snuggled by the fire with marshmallowed hot chocolates and snow decorated window frames.
The aim of the read-a-thon is to read any magical book possible – either witches, fairies/fey, books that feel magical, books with a winder setting or even a Christmas themed book or two, basically your choice with how you’d like to approach this.
Faye has also hinted at the fact there may even be a few Christmas surprises throughout and is open to hearing if a different or extended time slot would be preferred, don’t forget to stop by her post or contact her because help is always nice.
