🍀🍀🍀March Reading Plans🍀🍀🍀

Happy Thursday,

I hope you’re having a wonderful week and that March is also going well for you. I had planned to get this TBR up sooner but it has taken longer than I expected and work has certainly kept me busy. Better late than never though, right?

March is one of my favorite months because it’s a time when Spring is not that far away plus there’s St. Patrick’s Day which I enjoy celebrating every year and get to nerd out more than usual about the Irish culture. I am very close to fully reading at my normal speed which is equal parts exciting and overwhelming as lately I seem to want to read all of the books at once.

Speaking of reading, there are several readathons as well as a few book clubs that I would like to join in on and looking forward to see whether I can combine books for different readathons as that would certainly tone down the stress and I would be multi tasking at the same time. Realistically, I most likely won’t be able to fully participate all of the readathons that interest me this month but the attempt will be half the fun and I’ll hopefully find some new favorite books.

Happy Reading!

Ambitious October TBR

Happy Sunday!

I’m spending most of my day attempting to read a lot of books, hopefully finish a few that I put aside for a while and hopefully get my currently reading pile down a bit. Good thing I’ve had some coffee to keep me going!

Screenshot_20191006-163815_Instagram

Hoping to tackle quite a few by the 15th as I leave for a vacation to D.C. for a week. Looking forward to exploring with my babe, eating and seeing some friends. Haven’t nailed down which books to bring though trying to limit myself to taking three physical books and my Kindle

My tentative TBR & books on my radar which will probably go out the window after the 15th:

-Angel Mage by Garth Nix (on my radar)

Gilmore Girls Readathon (1st-15th)

– Book Girl by Sarah Clarkson (currently reading)

-Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng

-Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

-A Study In Death by Anna Lee Huber

-The Time Traveler’s Wife (reread and a possibility if I get to the rest of my readathon books)

Night Owl Book Club (Library)

-The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson (currently reading)

Books I’m over halfway through

Other Books I hope to get through
-Mariana (reread) by Susanna Kearsley

-Splendor Falls by Susanna Kearsley as -Voyage of the Basilisk by Marie Brennan

-An Echo In The Bone by Diana Gabaldon (at least read a few chapters)

As I mentioned to a few people, there’s so many books and so little time! Here’s hoping my pile doesn’t fall on me.

Well that wraps up my bookish ramblings for now. I will return soon with more bookish content and maybe even a tentative TBR for vacation.

Happy Reading!

April Readathons

Good afternoon,

I promised myself that I wouldn’t do more than one readathon for the month of April which is OWLs because that was my main focus. Pretty sure my inner bookworm is laughing her head off at me. I have been attempting to combine books for multiple readathons and the OWLs is month long so that’s a plus.

I recently learn that there is another readathon going on which I am really excited about because it’s all about reading the books you want with no challenges other than to be on social media as little as possible and it’s happening this weekend. I have some plans on Saturday but I am looking forward to participating. Before I go into that particular readathon, I will give you a brief rundown of the other readathons I have mentioned or hinted at.

🍀Irish Readathon📖

Happy March 1st!

This month is always one of my favorites because Spring is just around the corner and for those of you who may not know, March for me is the time I am inspired more than usual to enjoy the Irish Culture. I am a huge fan of the Irish culture and some of my ancestors came from Ireland. It’s my dream to some day be able to visit Ireland, see the beauty for myself, enjoy the food, visit some of the pubs, learn some of the slang, visit the bookstores and see the country that I’ve been dreaming of visiting since I was in the seventh grade.

Luckily I can travel to Ireland in the meantime through books, movies and celebrate while I save for that opportunity. Speaking of celebrating, St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays that I celebrate by dressing up in green, wearing some Irish jewelry, have a drink or two and eat delicious food in the form of Corned Beef, Cabbage, Colcannon and many other tasty dishes. I also have Irish cookbooks that family and friends have given to me that I love being able to pull out and experiment with.

Speaking of books, I made a personal goal for myself to read more of my Irish-themed books this year and what better month than this one? I probably won’t be able to get to all of the books that I would like to because I’ll be participating in a variety of readathons this month but I’ve pulled out the ones that I want to get to soon.

IMG_20190301_151849 (1)

I call this stack my variety of Irish books to choose from.

One readathon in particular that I will be participating is the Irish Readathon which will be hosted by Aoife on her YouTube channel- Fred Weasley Died Laughing  (if you click the link will take you to the announcement page). Her co-hosts will be Leanne and Elaine. It’s a month long readathon and there’s some challenges that have been set and are purely optional to join in on.

Challenges:

🍀 Read a book with green on the cover

th (10)th (13)

🍀Read a book from a female Irish author

th (12)th (14)

🍀 Read a book from a host’s favorite Irish writer (Aoife’s favorite is Sarah Rees Brennan, Leanne’s favorite is Louise O’Neill and Elaine’s favorite is Marian Keyes)

th (15)

🍀 Read a book that isn’t a novel

th (16)

🍀 Read a book that’s older than you

th (17)

My choices are liable to change depending on my mood but I am hoping to stick close to what I’ve decided on. I’m so excited to dive in, reread some favorite Irish books and discover some new ones! If you have any particular favorites that come to mind, please feel free to leave a comment or find me on my social media links. I’ll be back soon with more bookish posts!

Happy Reading

Contemporary-A-thon Round 4

Good morning,

I am so excited to be joining in on a readathon for this week. I’ve been meaning to join in for the last rounds and I finally can get in on the fun and hopefully have a really successful reading week. Whenever I try to come up with a to be read (TBR) list, it’s always a struggle because I tend to be quite the mood reader and so I’ve realized that my lists are always tentative at best.

So on to the information about the readathon. It runs from today (February 11th) until Sunday February 17th at 11:59 pm in whatever time zone you happen to be in. It’s a fairly laid back readathon and there are challenges which I will mention shortly. You can choose to read books that fit all seven of the challenges and read seven books or choose to double up depending on what works for you. If you don’t want to join in on the challenges and just want to read some or all contemporary books for the week, that’s perfectly fine as well. Also there will be other things that you can join in on for fun which I will talk about shortly . Now about the challenges and my tentative TBR.

1. Read your most recently acquired contemporary novel

One and Only by Jenny Holiday or Love and Luck by Jenna Evans Welch

 

2. Read a book with blurple (blue or purple) on the cover

The Gift by Cecelia Ahern

thegiftceceliaahern

3. Read a diverse contemporary (keep in mind it’s Black History Month)

The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

4. Read a dark or taboo contemporary

5. Read a contemporary you meant to read in 2018 but didn’t get to-

6. Read a contemporary in a non-traditional format.

Letters To The Lost by Brigid Kemmerer (e-book)

7. Read a contemporary with a picture on the spine

Seas of Crimson Silk Review

My Thoughts:

I was kindly given an ARC though it doesn’t affect my review and all thoughts are my own.This book was all that I love in a fantasy novel and more!

Imagine a world where creatures can shape shift into humans but their kind have either been hunted nearly to extinction so many have many been forced to either hide or be caged.  These creatures are known as the Beastkin which are a race that are humans who can transform into a variety of beasts including birds, lizards, wolves and many other creatures that have been known as myths but are very much alive.

This is the world of Sigrid of Wildewyn who has spent most of her life with her fellow Beastkin sisters as the Matriarch of her Clan in a beautiful woodland area among humans who have treated them well but more like fancy pets than a race that deserves to be free to roam. Sigrid is a Drakon and has been taught to believe that she’s the last of her kind. Their clan is very much about tradition including wearing a special mask when not among family or a husband and not to be touched with the same stipulations. If these rules are violated, they result in either the death of the Beastkin or the offender(s).

Sigrid and her sisters may be bound to their gilded cages by the humans they protect but they are far from damsels in distress. They are warrior women who have trained hard from children to be able to defend themselves and those they care for. So essentially they remind me of a mix of Amazons, Vikings, Celts and their own unique brand of tough close-knit women.

On the night Sigrid is to be bound to a human to help keep peace, they are attacked by a brand of assassins from the desert region Bymere and her betrothed is killed just before the ceremony is complete. She and her fellow sisters proceed to kill these enemies and allow a single person to escape to run back and spread the word about these fierce women.

Soon she finds herself the unwilling second wife of Sultan Nadir from Bymere who reluctantly agrees to a tentative peace between Wildewyn and his people. Nadir is a young royal who has always felt that he wasn’t fit to rule his kingdom and that his older brother Hamir would have done a much better job. Forced into the role of King after his brother was poisoned by ingredients believed to have come from Wildewyn, he has been at war with them since. Letting his advisors have most of the say and one of the advisors being his first wife Saafiya, he chafes at some of their edicts but also feels that they may know what’s best.

From the moment Nadir and Sigrid are bound to each other, there is a lot of tension and his entourage seems loathe to accept Sigrid even though she is now also a sultana. Finding companionship in her dear sister Camilla who accompanies her to this new strange land and her assigned guard Raheem, Sigrid is determined to not show weakness to these strangers and her new husband. While making the journey back to Bymere, they have stopped to rest and out of boredom, the advisors convince Sigrid to fight mostly to see how long it takes before she is beaten by some of their warriors. Not one to back down from a challenge, Sigrid shows the arrogant advisors just how unwise it would be to mess with her and gains a lot of respect in the eyes of Nadir who finds himself drawn to this fascinating and fierce woman.

After reaching Bymere, Sigrid finds herself trying to navigate the murky waters of being a second wife, being among people who are loathe to accept her including the advisors and first wife, showing Nadir some of the important aspects of being a leader and the struggles of being a Beastkin in an area where many of her kind have been hunted to extinction.

Life is about to get even more complicated for Sigrid when she learns some secrets about her kind that will cause her to have to choose between her heart which is slowly warming to Nadir and doing what’s right for her fellow Beastkin who have spent way too much time hiding.

A war is coming that has been a long time in the making. Sides will be chosen, decisions will have to be made and Beastkin are preparing to fight for their freedom because they are ready to prove that they deserve to be treated equally.

A fascinating blend of clash of cultures, Beastkin, surprises, friendship, loyalty and the choices leaders often have to make, I highly recommend checking out this book because the tale itself is so much more wondrous than I can accurately describe. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Well I hope you’ve enjoyed my bookish ramblings. I’m so happy to have gotten a chance to read this book and there were so many great parts that I highlighted on my Kindle. May you have a wonderful weekend full of all the reading your heart desires!

Happy Reading!
