(Video) My January Wrap Up | 2016

I thought I’d try to share what I put on youtube these days on my blog and so here we are. I made a mild mistake on my video, where I didn’t explain what any of the books are about. (FAIL!) So at least now I know for next time. I’m still learning. I hate it. I also need to learn to do cover photos. It’s funny, I filmed a whole load, but then realised I couldn’t really spoil on a video compiled of a […]

#GIVEAWAY: Illuminae by Jay Kristoff & Amy Kaufman (UK only)

HELLO THERE! So today on my blog I’m going to do something a little different and for no reason at all other than to make space for other lovely books, I’m giving away a copy of Illuminae that I got but haven’t read (loooong story but basically Book Depository messed up) and now I’m thinking maybe there’ll be someone else out there who’d love a copy (and who isn’t fussed that there’s no jacket to it). If that person is YOU, then all you gotta […]


#RYBSAT and A Winter’s Respite | Update

Hello, It’s me. Did you miss me? I’ve missed a few days, I know. That wasn’t planned, I promise. But honestly? I’ve been really stuck on my reading. It’s been scattered and full of uncertainties. I started a couple but couldn’t get into them. I read a hundred pages of Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson but I just…couldn’t continue. Not that it’s bad, but it was feeling a bit…tedious. I wasn’t into it. And then I worried what else to read because I know part of […]

Posted 17 January, 2016 by katheryn13 in Updates / 0 Comments

Hello again. It’s me. On day two and the final day of this lovely readathon and I’m just going to tell you how I’m doing. Today (17th) I have read about 50 pages of Scarlet by Marissa Meyer so far. It’s only 3pm and I’m hoping I’ll get more done before dinner distracts me. Hehe. And trust me… Food distracts me often.  I slept long but not hard so I’m feeling a bit meh today. Oh well. I see no one has commented on my […]

Posted 16 January, 2016 by katheryn13 in Updates / 0 Comments

Hello again! I thought I’d give you a quick update as to my progress with the #24in48 readathon challenge. After much decision over what to read,  and finding the Sin Eaters daughter a bit… Trying,  I decided to go with Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. I am on page 150 and am loving it.  It’s currently 21.45 and though there’s still a few hours til midnight, I am so tired. I’m going to bed and then I can get to reading in the morning (aka afternoon […]


#24in48 Readathon

Posted 16 January, 2016 by katheryn13 in Reading Challenges, Updates, YA / 0 Comments

Yes… It’s another challenge. Me like! So basically within the next 48 hours (16th-17th January) I read as much as I can. But because we need to sleep, the actual reading time will be around 24hrs. Confused yet? At time of posting I have already started my first book, though it’s hour 13. I had to finish my last book but that was only a couple chapters. What I’m reading: the sin eaters daughter by Melinda Salisbury I’m only on page 13. Haha. It’s not […]
