Biannual Bibliothon TBR!

Once again it's time for the summer part of the Biannual Bibliothon! This portion of the read-a-thon runs from July 3rd to July 9th. I can't wait for this week long read-a-thon to binge read some great books! Also it might help my annoyingly long reading slump to end. The hosts of this read-a-thon came up with several reading and video challenges and I will link their youtube videos about both below. While I will not be doing the video challenges, however, I will be participating in a couple of the reading challenges.

The Reading Challenges include:

  1. Read the group book- The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
  2. Free Choice/Wild Card Book
  3. Read a Book Off of the Host's List of Recommendations
  4. Read a Book With Your Favorite Mythical Creature
  5. Read a book You've Been Putting off Picking Up
  6. Read a Book from an Author You've Never Read Before
  7. Read a Book in a Different Formant than You Usually Read

I will not be reading the group book or any of the host recommendations because I don't own any of the books and I'm not super interested in their picks personally. However, I will be trying to read books that go along with all of the other challenges. For the second and fourth challenge, I will be reading Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice. This is my free choice and it has vampires in it, which are one of my favorite mythical creatures. Besides I really like the movie and I wanted to read the book that came before the screen adaptation. Next for the fifth challenge, I will be reading When She Smiled by Ritoban Chakrabarti, which I have been putting off because of my reading slump and my lack of passion for reading contemporary books. Also I received a copy for review and it does sound really interesting. Then the book I picked for the sixth challenge is Project Ark by L.T. Gibbons, which is a science fiction novel I received for review from the author. It goes to say that I haven't read anything by Gibbons. Lastly, there is the seventh challenge and I'm going to be listening to the audiobook of The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, which I normally wouldn't because audiobooks aren't my thing...
So that's my Biannual Bibliothon TBR! I look forward to binge reading and reading sprints on twitter! Let me know if you are join me in the read-a-thon and we can chat!

Thanks for reading

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 …
