Hooked On Books Wrap-Up

Hi, guys. I hope you guys are doing well and finding ways to stay cool during the really hot weather. Well, this past weekend I decided to stay inside and participate in the Hooked On Books Read-A-Thon from Goodreads. I wanted to catch-up on my reading and there were some books that were on my reading list. For those interested the Hooked on Books, Read-A-Thon happens every month and runs for 48 hours. The Goodreads group Hooked On Books also host 24-hour read-a-thons as well. To learn more about when future read-a-thons are schedule click on the link here. Below are some of the books I read.

Gunslinger by Stephen King

Gunslinger was one of the books I heard was coming out with a movie this year and I wanted to use this opportunity to start reading it. And also it looked like a short book. Sadly, the book didn’t really grab my attention and I decided to move on to a book that is more fast paced.

Hidden Figure by Margot Lee Shetterly

Hidden Figures was a book that I really wanted to read. I love books like this and I really wanted to watch the movie so I knew this had to be on my TBR. And I will admit that my sister wants to watch it as well and so I decided to get this over with.

The Black Witch by Laurie Forest

I saw The Black Witch on YouTube and thought it looked like it would be a great book. Plus, I think the book cover looked awesome and I have this feeling that this could be a great book and could be a favorite of 2017. So, far I am having fun reading the book and it is so far holding my attention. If you are interested in learning about my thought on the book when I finished do check back for a future review.

So that is it for the read-a-thon. If you totally enjoyed this post do share it with your friends. And until my next post keep on reading.

Hooked On Read-A-Thon

Hi, guys, it’s almost summer and it’s already hot out. Ugh, I personally am not excited about the hundred degree weather. Who is? Well, this week I found a great way to hide away from the heat and decided to join the Hooked on Books Read-a-Thon this weekend. The read-a-thon was created from the Goodreads Group Hooked On Books. This read-a-thon starts on Saturday the June 17 to the June 18. It’s a great 48 hours to squeeze in some backs that were on my TBR list forever. If you are interested in joining here is the link to the read-a-thon. Here below are the two I will be reading this weekend. Hopefully, you will be joining in on the fun.

Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly

I picked this book because for one it’s been on my list since I heard about the movie but also my sister wants to watch soon. In fact, she said if we don’t watch the movie soon she would just watch it without me. This weekend I will read so then next weekend we can grab the popcorn and watch it. Unless another read-a-thon happens.

The Black Witch by Laurie Forest

This is a newly released book. I don’t know a whole lot about this book except the fact there is witches, magic and there is a university involved. I also saw this book all over Booktube so it kind of got my attention. So this week I will be squeezing this book. Sounds magical.

Those are the books I will be reading. If you got suggests let me know. For those interested in keeping up with my progress during the read-a-thon I will be posting my updates on social media. My social media links will be below so you don’t miss a thing. Until next time keep on reading.

Cramathon Read-A-Thon

I know this is probably late to announce but I just joined a read this weekend called Cramathon. This read-a-thon is created by Sara from SarawithoutanH from YouTube and Whitney from WhittyNovels on Youtube as well. This was a spur out of the moment but since I have books that needed to be read, I decided why not? So below is my TBR for the read-a-thon. I didn’t pick a lot since its a four day read-a-thon but I had three I want to get through.
