I Don’t Know Anymore // My Thoughts // Rant // Personal

So hey. Long time no speak, eh? Today I kinda wanna talk about…stuff. You know. Nothing serious, just stuff that’s been bothering me of late. Such as twitter, blogging, writing, among other bits and pieces. Mostly I’m annoyed. I have gotten, more than once, to the point where I just want to quit Twitter cold turkey. Which, I’ve tried. It’s fucking hard. It’s not just the obnoxious hashtags and the shit people throw at others because they have an opposing opinion, it’s also that when […]

#boutofbooks 17 | midweek update

Posted 25 August, 2016 by katheryn13 in Readathons, Updates, YA / 0 Comments

Hello everyone. So this week 22nd to 28th August I’m participating in the #boutofbooks 17 readathon challenge. It’s now half way and I just wanted to let you know my progress so far.  On Monday/Tuesday I read:  12 chapter sampler of The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead. That is 148pages. On Tuesday (once I finished the previous, obv) and Wednesday: I began The Crown by Kiera Cass.   113 pages read over those days.  So that’s it for now. It’s currently Thursday, but the day […]

Spotlight/Interview: WENDY HIGGINS #BookBloggers #NewReleases #NA

Amber Tate believes the worst thing she’ll suffer in life is dealing with the unrequited love she feels for her brother’s best friend, Rylen Fite. She also believes war is something unfortunate that happens places far, far away from her rural Nevada town. She’s wrong on both counts. When an unknown organization meticulously bombs major cities in the United States and across the globe, a trickle-down effect spreads to remaining towns at an alarming speed—everything from food and water sources to technology and communications are […]


What’s this? What’s this? There’s something very wrong! #bookbloggers

What’s this? What’s this? There’s something very wrong! #bookbloggers

Haha, got your attention! You like my Jack Skellington reference? No, but seriously, this is horrible. I’m in serious trouble. Reading wise. I’ve not finished a book in 7 weeks!  I mean, yes, I’ve read a few pages here and there, but of DIFFERENT books. It’s seriously getting me down. I think me reading 9 books in June properly ruined me. So instead I’ve been editing my WIP, the one which I finished the first draft of a few years ago. It’s going…okay. So far. I’ve […]

Review:  5 stars to The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo #1) by Rick Riordan

How do you punish an immortal? By making him human. After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favour. But Apollo has many enemies – gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo […]

Take it away, girl! 🙂 1: You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next? If I had that many books on my TBR, I’d probably just close my eyes and point to all the books. Whichever one I was pointing directly at is the one […]
