Try a chapter challenge part two...

 Hello there!

I decided to continue with all five books and try another chapter... I liked all five books. Very different, and that's a good thing. Now I just need to get over my mini reading slump... It is awful. Maybe these books will help me :)

I am also soon participating in two buddy reads:

Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre... by the Bronte sisters.

So I am in for some classics soon. LOL. It will be awesome. I love classics.

More later! :)

Try a chapter Challenge

 


Hello there dear reader! 

So, my Dewey's readathon was a success, read a lot and enjoyed myself. 

Today I got an idea... I have been watching booktube for ages. There has been the challenge to try one chapter, the first one lol, and then tell about your thoughts and decide whether to read on. This sounds so fun. I'm going to try it. Wish me luck!

Dewey's reverse readathon August 2021

 Hi there, 

This time the readathon has been better in some ways, although I didn't start reading/listening to audio books until the readathon had started long ago. I woke up early, travelled by train home from my parents and took a long nap, yet I have finished one audio book so far. I've started it earlier but I'm happy with my efforts. I finished The house in the cerulean sea by TJ Klune. Soon I will read and listen to something else...

See ya!

Dearest fellow readathon people

 Hello there! 

This reverse readathon is happening today...

https://deweysreadathon.wordpress.com/

It's so awesome! 

I've been participating in the dewey's readathons for several years... maybe like five. It's the best. It gets me out of my reading slumps, it simply makes me feel happy. This time my TBR is a bit shorter. 

Anna Karenina  by Leo Tolstoy 

The green mile by Stephen King 

Good omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman 

Audio book 

The house in the cerulean sea by TJ Klune

I'm rereading The green mile. I've read it once before. I'm reading and listening simultaneously. It's a buddy read in a bookish server on discord. Anna Karenina is an old Russian classic, I've been trying to read it for a buddy read in another server on discord. Good omens is also a buddy read... the house in the cerulean sea is an audio book I'm listening to on scribd. 

Good luck with the readathon, if you decide to participate. 

Hugs from Finland.

The end is near...



Well, I slept 8 hours, took a break watching Church on youtube. Now I'm ready to continue. I might not have read a lot but at least I'm over my slump! 🥳 that's a very good thing!

Here we go again.. :D

 Hello!

Now I've slept a bit (five-ish hours lol) and woke up at  5 am and took a caffeine pill a little while ago, it feels a bit like cheating but it's for a good cause... :D I didn't read last night that much, only wrote messages with friends and my aunt. Now I'm back in business. 

I have my Finnish mead (non-alcoholic) and chocolate, in case I need it. I usually don't eat a lot in the morning, but I drink a lot of juice etc. usually. Last night I ate some garlic bread and now I'm feeling a bit ummm.... doughy :D lol. It was too much. 

Today my goal is to read a little more of my friend's book, maybe even finish it. It's called "Ei kaikki pinnat kireällä" by Taru Luojola. She is a really good author. I laugh out loud when I read her books :D I met her in 2019 on Discord. We have a little book group there that I joined then.

I'm happy. I have finished two books that had started earlier, listened a bit of The midnight library by Matt Haig and before read a bit in my friend's book. In case you missed it, it's in Finnish, my second mother tongue. It's a very fun and beautiful language.

See ya!

Reading & listening to audiobooks



Hi!

I decided to listen to this audiobook if/when I need a break from holding a book lol. It's really nice. Good narrator. 

I've read/listened for 4 hours straight almost... I did fall asleep for 15 minutes. 😂 I didn't do it on purpose lol. I will not do it again, I took a caffeine pill... yes, indeed... 

I'll try to stay up late 😅 wish me luck! (It's 7 pm here now...)

Ta!
