#ReReadathon wrap up

Posted 17 July, 2017 by katheryn13 in Contemporary, readathons, Reviews, Romance, Updates, YA / 0 Comments

Hi again!
So the re-readathon has come to an end. I know, I’m sad, too. Since my last update, I finished The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, and LOVED IT! Took me longer than I expected, but yeah, what’s new?
I got half way through This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith and I’m loving it, again, but I think I’m also coming to the end of my contemporary wave, and I’m excited to read something new, something fantasy. Maybe.
I don’t really want to leave this book unre-read (that’s not a word, is it?) but I’m eager to move on. Sigh. I mean, I guess I can finish it another time. It’s not going anywhere. 
So in total I read: 
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
and 50% of This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
Anyway, this was my update. I have another readathon NEXT weekend, which is the 24 in 48hr readathon and then on the 24th the Booktube-a-thon begins. Wow. That’s a lot to deal with on top of Camp Nano. EEP! 
Are you taking part in any of these?

#ReReadathon Updates

Posted 12 July, 2017 by katheryn13 in Contemporary, Funny, readathons, Reviews, Updates, YA / 0 Comments

Hi everyone. 
So this week I’ve been doing the #rereadathon organised by @bexthebookninja on twitter. It finishes next Sunday but I thought I’d do a quick update and tell you how it’s going so far, considering I’m smack in the middle of Camp Nanowrimo. Sigh.
Luckily I was already in the process of rereading books when this readathon started (I had kinda forgotten the start date anyway) and so I’m counting the one I read a few days before hand as well. They’re all contemporaries, too. So fun times ahead.
Ehem.
So first up I reread Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. For the fourth time now I’ve read this, and I LOVE it. Obviously. 
Then I reread (there’s a theme here. lol) Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson. Funny, because I hadn’t intended on having a travel theme in all these books, but apparently my subconscious is hating how I’m unable to go to SDCC this year and is taking it out on my book choices. 😛 I don’t mind, really. These are all fantastic books. This would be the second time I’d read this and honestly, I think I enjoyed it about as much, though because it had been a good few years since, I guess I’ve grown a bit (sigh) and so some bits annoyed me that I didn’t think about previously. Don’t you just hate it when that happens?
I’m currently reading (get ready for this tongue twister!) The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith. Oh god, it’s been almost 5 years since I first read this. Can you believe that? I mean, I remember it SO clearly. 
And kind of like with the previous book, some bits are turning out to…I dunno. Not be the same. First of all I forgot that it’s third person, present tense. And since I rarely read those kind of books (there’s a reason) it was a little jarring at first. Still, I remember how cute this book is so I’m sticking with it. Also it’s mostly set in London. xD I’m about 67 pages in. It’s a short book, too (235 pages) so it shouldn’t take me too long. I remember when I first read it thinking it was too short and also I read it in one sitting. WHAT. 
So that’s where I’m at so far. I hope to get to one other before the week is up, but as I’ve been out a bit this week, I’ve  not gotten as much done as I’d like. Anyway, are you taking part in this rereadathon? Let me know in the comments. 
😀
