Booktube-A-Thon TBR 2017
I was inspired by Jesse the Reader's recent booktube video to take part in this event. It's a fun week of reading and I'm excited to be a part of it. Feel free to check out the video below.
The challenge is read seven books in a week based off of different themes.
1. A book with a person on the cover
Trials of Apollo by Rick Riordan
2. Read a hyped book.
Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh
3. Finish a book in one day.
Hell's Bells by Tatum Flynn
4. Read a book about a character that's very different from you.
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
5. Finish a book completely outdoors
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
6. Read a book that you bought because of the cover
Riders by Veronica Rossi
7. Read 7 books
Wink Poopy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke
1. Waiting to find out if I'll become an official contributor for the Mary Sue. Really hope I get in so I can write articles.
2. Planning to also submit proposals to other online magazines. Bustle is among them.
3. Waiting on the results of an online story contest I entered.
4. Missed July IWSG by accident. Promise that won't happen for August. Awkward.
5. Will start dropping reviews again soon and also bringing back movie and Netflix reviews. Slowly but surely.
6. Getting ready to work with Najla Qamber, an amazing cover designer in August and September. Self-publishing plans are looking up!
7. Freelance work is a go. Taking it one day at a time.
8. Watching my health day by day. Also going to look after my mother starting Saturday when she returns from having surgery. Let's see how I get a workaholic to stay in bed.
9. Writing for myself started in July then stalled but I hope to get things going again after the weekend.
10. I'm back on Netflix after a hiatus and catching up on my series and movie watching.
11. Finally started going back to the movies. I have seen Transformers: The Last Stand, Captain Underpants, Spiderman: Homecoming and Wonder Woman. I'll have to put most movie going on pause to watch mom but when others are home I plan to try and squeeze in a few more including War for the Planet of the Apes, Despicable Me 3 and Dark Tower. Also I think there's some subliminal messaging going on because I'm getting the urge to go see The Emoji movie. The fact that there's news of a Transylvania 3 Short in front of it isn't helping. Fight the urge, you know the movie's awful.
So that's all I have to say today. See you all next week and take care.
