What are words? | Week 1 of #NaNoWriMo2016

Posted 7 November, 2016 by katheryn13 in Blog Talks, Fun, NaNoWriMo, Updates, writing challenges / 1 Comment

Guys, guys, guys…HALP?
I honestly don’t know why I chose to do this. I mean…50k in a month? Am I mad? YES. Yes, I am. So as I forgot to actually VLOG this week, I realise I’d have to do a written post about my progress so far. WHUUUUUT WHYYYY
CRIES
Okay, enough dramatics. 
I’ve been pretty behind on my word count, but not as much as in previous years. I’m  holding up well. Here’s a break down:
Tuesday 1st November: I kinda cheated this day because I forgot to reset the word count on scrivener. *gasps* Yeah, so  I put into nano site I did 1200 words, which wasn’t THAT far off, to be honest.
Wednesday 2nd November: Ugh, I hate maths. Nano site doesn’t tell me (past the actual day) how many words I did specifically, and I forgot to write notes. I used a calculator (woo go me!) and deduced I wrote 1164 words this day. *party time*
Thursday 3rd November: Apparently I wrote 1159 words? Um…okay, if you insist Mr Calculator.
Friday 4th November: Seriously, I’m thinking I’m doing the maths wrong. *growls* Apparently I only wrote 1058 words this day. WHAT?
Saturday 5th November (*Guy Fawkes day* WOOOOOT! fireworks everywhere!!!): *calculates* ah yes, that’s better. I wrote 2240 words. I am the master of words this day! Watch me type….ROAR! 
Sunday 6th November: sigh. 1269. I SWEAR I wrote more. I swear it. This adding and subtracting business is screwing with me. GRRRR!
Monday 7th November (THAT’S TODAY!!!): Haha, well that’s easy. 0words. I mean, I haven’t written any yet. I’ll guess..hmmm…I’ve written 5000 words today. 😛 What? You don’t believe I can do it? Pfft! 
Just you wait.
*starts rapping Hamilton lyrics* 
Oops, sorry.
See ya next week! xx Kat xx
p.s. if you’re doing NaNo, let me know your progress! I wanna know who I need to beat. Mwahahahaha

#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 isn’t over so I’ll update you on my final tally come Monday. 

I hope you’re enjoying your week. And if you’re doing this readathon also, let me know how it’s going for you!  XD

#SBPT | Week 7: Brooke from The Cozy Little Book Nook @brookeevans2001 @TheBookBratz

Posted 14 August, 2016 by katheryn13 in Blog Talks, Blogging Challenges, Fun, Interviews, Updates, YA / 0 Comments

Hey everyone! We’re nearly at the end of this fun tour organised by The Book Bratz. Again, thanks for having me! This week we’re talking to Brooke as she does the Epic Reads book tag. Enjoy! 🙂

 


Hi Everyone! I’m Brooke from The Cozy Little Book Nook and I’m so happy to be able to blog here on Kat’s blog today! So my post today is the Epic Reads Tag which is just questions about books (duh). Anyway, without too much of my blabbering, let’s get into the post!

 

  1. If you could invite one author and one of their fictional characters to tea, who would you invite and what would you serve them?
Ok I talked about this in another of these SBPT posts but I will talk about it again because I love it so much. Kiera Cass and her character, America Singer. I would love to talk with Kiera Cass about the thought process behind the book, how she came up with the idea, etc… Also America Singer is such a force to reckon with and a role model to like everyone. As to what I’ll serve… I guess cookies and coffee (because I dislike tea).

 

  1. What book do you wish the author would write a prequel for?
For some reason, i don’t have strong feelings about any authors having a prequel for their book. I don’t know if it’s just that I don’t want to (which actually is highly unlikely) or that I’ve just read so many books these last couple of weeks that I can’t remember any of them.

 

  1. Which two characters (NOT from the same book) do you think would make a good couple?
Two characters that would make a good couple and not from the same book. Taylor from The Way to Game the Walk of Shame and Finn from Summer of Sloane. Even though the two books both ended up with them having a happy ending, I feel like the two can really balance each other out with their personalities.

 

  1. If you ran into your favourite author on the subway and only could say one sentence to them, who is it and what would it be?
‘Oh My Gosh I love you’ (?) But knowing me, I’ll probably just stand there staring in awe at them trying to figure out what to say and then end up saying nothing to them.

 

  1. What book made you a reader and why?
There is no specific book that made me a reader; books were something that I always loved as a young child since I had all the friends that I could ever want in books. But when middle school started, I kinda lost that passion for reading due to my lack of time so when I read The Selection by Kiera Cass, I guess that’s what made me the reader I am now and the reason I started my blog.

 

  1. Incendio! Your bookshelf just caught on fire! Show us the one book you save.
Um why would you ever do this to me? I think the book I would save is The Unexpected Everything because I haven’t read it yet and I’ve been wanting to read it for so long. But let’s be real, I’ll be grabbing all the books that I have on my shelves if they catch on fire.

 

  1. Which dystopian world would you want to live in if you had to choose one? Why?
Hmmm, which dystopian world would I like to live in. I’m not sure because the only ones that I’m thoroughly familiar with is the Hunger Games and The Selection so….. But they both have huge downsides so I think I like living in our current world… That’s also the reason I like reading contemporary books over dystopian books (but I still like reading them both).

 

  1. What is your most epic read of all time?
Why are all these questions so hard to answer? Actually I’m just indecisive. My most epic read of all time is One Paris Summer by Denise Grover Swanker. But of course, that is just my choice for right now.

 

  1. Also, tag some friends to answer these questions!
This sounds utterly cliche but I tag all of you guys to do this tag! Also send me links to your posts if you do this tag so I can see it too!

Thank you so much to Kat for having me on her blog today! If you guys want to see more of my posts, go over to my blog, The Cozy Little Book Nook and check those out because I’m featuring another blogger on there as well!

Re-Readathon time!

Posted 9 August, 2016 by katheryn13 in Fun, Readathons / 1 Comment

Yooooo so I wasn’t intending on doing this, but since I’m in a reading slump, rereading stuff might be a good idea. (click image to go to original post announcement)

It starts tomorrow. Anyone else in?
Here’s the schedule for challenges, etc.
