I was battling between the ideas of including this post in my July wrap up or writing a separate dedicated post just for the read-a-thon, and as my first ever reading event, I decided that it deserved its own well rounded conclusion!
I DID IT! I MANAGED TO COMPLETE ALL OF THE CHALLENGES!
It was a very intense reading week, as I usually don’t read that much, but it feels good to overcome my reading slump that haunted me from the beginning of July and actually make some progress through my TBR pile. Continue reading “Booktube-a-Thon 2017 | I did it! Completed challenges and wrap up!”
It has been a while since my last update, but I’ve been keeping good pace and reading those classics as planned! Also I couldn’t be happier with my printable and have been using it since January to track my progress. Continue reading “Classic-a-Month | Reading challenge Update!”
I am sure you all have heard of Booktube-A-Thon and seen a lot of announcement videos about it on YouTube. Obviously, I don’t make YouTube videos, but I would love to join the reading challenges.
Booktube-A-Thon will start on the 24th and end on the 30th of July, and even though I will have my usual work schedule, I have faith in my reading abilities to complete all of the challenges (maybe except the last one…).

It seems that even Publishers are taking some time off in July, because compared to the previous months, this one will be the quietest of them all!

Where do I even begin? May was busy and quick–passing, yet it felt way longer than previous months. Maybe because I was able to read, post, work and do tons of other things. If only I had so much energy every month of the year!

The year started strong with «Pride and Prejudice» by Jane Austen and then February came along with another case of reading slump. Most likely due to me trying to finish «The Book Thief» by Markus Zusak that I started in late August and just not enjoying it at all. It was a great story, but the writing or the Portuguese translation just didn’t get me into the world created by the author, but more about that below.

The new year started on a very high note, with many new books and of course with the first classic of the year – «Pride and Prejudice» by Jane Austen. I bought this beautiful (very classic) edition in Russian and absolutely devoured it!
It turned out to be way more interesting than I expected it to be, as I am not a fan of romances (and for some reason I associated it to be a pure romance) but it was so much more! It’s one of the best «character» novels that I’ve ever read. Continue reading “Classic a Month | Reading Challenge”
