Booktube-A-Thon 2015: Wrap Up!

So it is now, Monday August 10th 2015 and it is twelve o'clock in the afternoon where I am (Well it was when I wrote this...but I forgot to upload it..sorry!!), which means the Booktube-a-thon is over...and I didn't read to the best of my ability for several reasons. One people kept coming over to my house and two I was out and about doing things with friends and my boyfriend before I leave for my first year of college. I'm sad that I didn't read as much as I would have liked, but I had fun and I did read the main book I wanted to read. So on with the update!

I started off the read-a-thon reading the Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub. Okay, it was more like I continued reading it since I was on page 426, but eh technicalities :P I finished this on the third day and it was awesome! I loved it and would recommend it for everyone, who isn't a young child... Anyway I read a total of 496 pages for this book! :D

Then I started listening to Soul Meaning by A.D. Starrling and I listened to about an hour and a half of it. I stopped listening for now, but I'll be picking it back up later this month.

Lastly, I read a totally of....20 pages of A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki! I know I read so much! Haha, but that is all I have for you guys. I hope you had an amazing week!

P.S I'm super sorry I did not upload this when I first wrote it! I meant to then I got distracted my pre-college stuff!

Night of All Evil by J.M. Shorney

My Rating: 3/5 stars Average Rating: 4/5 stars Format: ebook ISBN13: 9781310806902
I received a free copy in exchange for a honest review from
Night of All Evil was a good gothic horror novel about a witch named Freya that has a dark past that comes back to haunt her and her family. Freya was my favorite character and I really enjoyed reading from her point of view. The thing I liked about her was how she acted in the situations she is placed in. She also is just an interesting person that also happens to be a super powerful witch, which is pretty cool. In fact once I started this novel, I had a hard time putting it down. While I really enjoyed reading the story, the character development was just okay and it was kind of predictable. However, it was still a good read that grabbed my attention and kept me entertained.                                                                                                   Thanks for reading!                                            …

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon Tips for All!

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a great month. I am super excited since the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon is almost here. I have only done this once, but I learned a lot during that 24 hour period. Now I am going to share my advice with you.

1. Read What YOU Want to Read.

This is incredibly important. If you are not reading something you want to read and your pushing yourself to read it, then put it down and take a break. Read something you want or take a nap. If your doing this, it could led to a reading slump or watching Netflix... I totally did that! Not that there is anything wrong with taking a break! Or watching Netflix...

2. Take Breaks, Even Naps!

This is key to having fun during this read-a-thon! If your eyes start to blur, take a nap. If your hungry or want to watch Netflix for a little bit. Do it! Or you could cheer other people on during the read-a-thon. If you didn't sign up to be a cheerleader, join #TeamRogue and cheer. :D Just do not over work yourself.

Anyone? by Angela Scott

I finished this book in about three hours...
I also tweeted her to see if there would be a sequel...which I want really bad...

"The end of the world? That’s the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters and deep philosophical exercises in school. No need to sweat it. So when sixteen-year-old Tess’s doomsday-dad builds a bomb shelter in their suburban backyard, everyone thinks he’s gone crazy….
…Until fire rains down from the sky, sinking whole cities into colossal craters and setting much of the world ablaze.
Tess’s dad gives her a few short minutes to gather her emergency bag and her freaked-out kitten, then leads her outside and into the underground shelter. Terrified, the last thing she expects is for him to leave her there all alone, but he has no choice—he must find her missing brother. Before leaving, he makes Tess promise to keep the hatch door shut, not to open it for anyone but him, and to stay put until he returns.
But he forgot to tell her one thing: What is she supposed …
