Panemathon TBR

Welcome to my overly ambitious TBR pile for the month of June as I’m participating in Panemathon! It is a wonderful readathon and it is so accessible. You can really make it suit you and your reading habits.

As you can see however, I am not making this easy this easy for myself! You see, Panemathon is a competition, just like The Hunger Games. You sign up (closes May 31st!) to the district of your choice and earn points for your district. I’ll be representing District 8 and I highly encourage you to sign up for 8 too!

I’ll leave a link at the end of the post where you can find more information about how Panemathon works.

Event

Y’ALLSTAYHOME- Saturday

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all keeping safe and well!

Due to Coronavirus (a sentence I’m sure you’ve read countless times by now) the annual book festival, YALLWEST could not physically take place. They decided instead however to go virtual, conducting panels with authors via the infamous Zoom under the name, Y’ALLSTAYHOME. I thought this was a lovely thing and I was especially pleased because it meant that international readers like me could also take part. I just thought it’d be nice do a write up of what was a lovely event but first I’d like to thank all the authors and organisers for ensuring it could happen!

Review

The Anti-Virginity Pact by Katie Wismer

*I received an E-ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

Goodreads Synopsis: Preachers’ daughters aren’t supposed to be atheists. They’re also not supposed to make pacts to lose their virginity by the end of the year, but high school senior Meredith Beaumont is sick of letting other people tell her who to be.
Spending the last four years as Mute Mare, the girl so shy just thinking about boys could trigger panic attacks, Meredith knows exactly what it’s like to be invisible. But when a vindictive mean girl gets her manicured claws on the anti-virginity pact and spreads it around the school—with Mare’s signature at the bottom—Mare’s not so invisible anymore. She just wishes she was.

My 2018 Bookish Favourites

favourites of 2018

Well, hasn’t 2018 just flown by us? I wish you a happy beginning to 2019 with a look back at the past reading year 2018. This was my first year of properly logging my reading on Goodreads. I have to say, I really did thoroughly enjoy taking part in the challenge myself this year rather than simply cheering everyone else on from the side lines (although I do still love seeing how everyone else is getting on!). When I set my challenge back on January 1st 2018 I didn’t know Continue reading “My 2018 Bookish Favourites”
