Today I’m not going to write a book review, do a book tag, or even talk about Harry Potter’s excellent character growth. Nope, today I’m going to announce stuff (yay). This isn’t going to be a long blog post, since I don’t have a lot of time and because, quite frankly, announcing stuff is kind of boring. So fasten your seatbelts, and enjoy this extremely fast ride (filled with readathons and Simon vs. goodness)!
Dewey’s 24 hour readathon
Okay, this readathon is one of the reasons why I have so little time to write this post, namely, it starts in 2 hours. It turns out I’m pretty bad in announcing things, since I forgot this readathon was happening till ten minutes ago (despite the fact I found out about it and wrote the date in my planner days earlier). I’ve always wanted to participate in a readathon, and this one seemed like the perfect fit, it’s only 24 hours long and seemingly great for newbie’s like me (also, I’m really behind on my Goodreads challenge, so this is a good excuse to catch up). During this readathon I’d like to finish ‘A Thousand Pieces of You’ by Claudia Gray, and maybe start ‘The Raven Boys’ or ‘Winter’ by Marissa Meyer. Anyways, I’m very excited to participate in this readathon and I hope you bookworms will read a long with me (I’m also going to be tweeting stuff during the entire thing, so if you’re interested in that, you can follow me @sophthebookworm).
Here is the link to the official readathon page:
It’s finally here, two glorious weeks of spring break! I’ve really been looking forward to it (duh), and I can’t wait to have more time to blog. So, in order to get myself to actually do stuff and not lie in bed all day, I’m going to try to write 7 blogposts in 14 days! (That must be achievable, right?). Wish me luck!
Meeting Becky Albertalli
Yup, you’ve read that right, I’m going to meet Becky Albertalli! For those who don’t know, she is the author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, one of my favorite books of all time. She is coming to a local bookstore for a signing, and I think there is going to be an Oreo bake-off. I’ve never been to an author event-thingy before, and to be honest I’m kind of nervous. I’ll go with one of my friends who has also read the book (and loved it), and I’ll probably be writing a post about the entire thing, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Okay guys, that were all the announcements! I hope you enjoyed reading my first announcement post ever, but now I’ve really got to go, since the readathon is starting in 1 hour and I’ve got to post this quick (this also means there is no time for proof reading, so if you’ve found some horrendous grammar mistakes, you now know why).
