TREESOFREVERIE JUNE READ-A-THON: QUESTIONNAIRE | PART 1

  • 01. Where will you be sharing your bookish updates for the Treesofreverie June Read-A-Thon?
  • 02. How did you start book blogging? What got you interested in starting, were there particular blogs that influenced or encouraged your decision? (If you don’t have a book blog, are you interested in starting one?)
    • It may sound weird, but the first trigger was getting a Nook tablet from a friend for Christmas that year.  It got me back to reading again and involved in online book communities, which led to the friendship that ultimately inspired my book blogging journey.

A Brief Update for the #treesofreveriereadathon

So, It’s technically speaking day 3 in this readathon so far, and thus far I have read 340 pages.  I am into my second book, and this book meets one of my reading prompts or reading challenges (without going back and looking, I don’t remember which category it was in) of being a book I was sent for an honest review.  I am currently reading The Stepsister’s Tale.  I am about 25% into the book and so far it is starting to get kind of interesting.  My first book of the readathon, which I had started just prior to the readathon and got to finish up, was The Body in the Woods by April Henry and became one of the few negative reviews that will be posted on my blog.  The review went up yesterday, June 17th.  I was not thrilled with the book, but you all can read my review and decide for yourselves.

And So We Begin: The #treesofreveriereadathon!!

So this runs for two weeks, from the 16th to the 1st, essentially.  What do I hope to accomplish in that two weeks?  Oh, well, I plan to read a crapton of books.

Because seriously?  This is kinda my review pile right now.

I know, I know, it’s My Little Pony.  But I have a 3 year old daughter.  She is obsessed, and just watched this episode today.  I kinda get how Spike (the little dinosaur looking thing) feels when those books fall on him!

This debut thriller combines a pulse-pounding thriller (like False Memory or Starters) with a new adult coming-of-age story set at Texas A&M University.
