The House Cup Reading Challenge TBR

I’m so late to the party, but as soon as I saw that Lia from Lost in a Story signed up for this, I knew I had to as well. It is a month-long competition that helps take on our TBR, hosted by Lauren of Live, Love, Read, Erica of Escape Under the  Cover, Kelsey of Kelsey’s Cluttered Bookshelf and Alex of Booksy Daisy. The rules and how the challenge works can be found here. I’m running out of time to complete my sign-up, so let’s just get into it.

Top Three Thursdays #22 – Ways to Improve My Reading Life

Hello and welcome! This is my weekly series, Top Three Thursdays, or, for convenience, TTT. Every week I discuss my top three in any bookish topic. If you’d like to participate, write up a post on your blog and leave a link to it in the comments below.

The topic for today (28/09/17) is: Ways to Improve My Reading Life

It is a universally acknowledged fact that there is no such thing as too many books. As bookworms, we struggle with trying to scale that TBR mountain, find enough bookshelf space and make more time to read. Here are three ways that I’ve come up with to improve my reading life.

Summer BiBib Day #7 – Letter to a Character

The final day for the Summer Biannual Bibliothon is here! I’m feeling kinda sad that it’s over. It has really helped me put a dent in my TBR and I know I’ll finish seven books by the end of this week. I can’t believe I read that quickly but this community reading aspect has been a good motivator. I’m pretty sure I’ll be taking part in the Winter edition as well, especially if the blog challenges continue. I realised on Sunday that there were blog challenges on each day, so I was unprepared. Without dilly-dallying, let’s get to today’s challenge. This is hosted by Dylanthereader and here’s the description:

Today’s challenge is to write a letter to a character! This can be from your point of view, or a character’s! Do what you want!

BiBib Day 7

For this challenge I picked Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. If you aren’t aware, it is written as a series of letters by Charlie to an unknown recipient. I thought it’d be fun to write back to Charlie from the POV of that person.

My Ambitious #SummerBiBib & #BTAT17 TBR

I had to abandon my usual plans for my blog posts because this week I’m taking part in two of the most popular read-a-thons in existence – the Biannual Bibliothon and BookTube-A-Thon. If you haven’t heard about them (and I’d be surprised if that’s the case), I’ll leave the links to the introductory videos below so you can check them out. It’s never too late to hop on board! Trying to find books that fit into the reading challenges of both the read-a-thons took me a while, but I managed to figure something out. It’s highly ambitious since my work+commute eats up 13 hours of my time. I’m trying to squeeze in some reading during the commute and during my lunch hour in office. But I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing most of my reading on the weekends. Without further ado, let me tell you what books I plan on reading.
