It’s been quite a while since I’ve taken part in any reading challenges and read-a-thons because of my hectic schedule but this one is something I just had to sign up for. The Magnificently Magic Read-A-Thon is hosted by the lovely Faye and the idea is to spend these four days reading magical books. That could be books with witches, books about fairies, books that just feel magical, books with a winter setting, or even Christmas themed books.
Throughout the RAT there will also be a twitter chat – which you know I absolutely love about these events -, giveaways and mini-challenges (I’m going to be hosting one of them) as well. Since next week is the very last week of the first term at uni and the past few months were terribly stressful, I’ll try to spend these few days with not worrying about writing essays or anything else. I’ve SO MANY Christmas books for review that it’ll be the perfect opportunity for me to catch up with those, to finally spend some with you guys – and to have a good time.
I’m terrible at sticking to reading lists so I won’t have an official list kinda thing BUT there’s one book I’d like to read this weekend – which is:
I’m really excited about this one because so many of you have recommended it on Twitter – so this is definitely going on my (non-existent) reading list. Based on previous read-a-thons and how much time I spent with the challenges and chatting on Twitter I probably won’t have much time for anything else but hey, I’m fine with that.
Anyway, I’ll update this page with all the challenges and my progress later this week, so if you’re interested you can check them out here. If you need some more info or you’d like to sign up for the challenge, just click here and you’ll be redirected to Faye’s blog.
Is anyone else participating? What are you planning to read?
So today Sheri at Shut Up and Read is hosting a mini challenge which sounds like a lot of fun. Here’s a link to the challenge and here are my answers:
“Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love. It did not end well.”
“She had been innocent once, a little girl playing with feathers on the floor of a devil’s lair.”
“When I saw her smile I wondered what it would be like to make her smile… I thought it would be like the discovery of smiling.”
