Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon Wrap Up

Header Image (12)

So the Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon has finished and I honestly didn’t do that great in this ReadAThon! I knew that I wouldn’t get TONNES read as I knew I would have to sleep and work. When I first decided I was going to do this ReadAThon I didn’t know that I was going to be working, so I planned on read all day today but that didn’t happen.

Blog Titles (24)

I started reading last night at 10:00pm, which was when the ReadAThon started in Aus. I went to sleep at about 1am and listened to an audiobook until I fell asleep.. I couldn’t get to sleep straightaway so I actually got an hour and a half of listening done. I woke up at 8 and worked from 9 till 1:30 and then had to come home and have something to eat and do some jobs. I then read for about 2 hours and then had to do some more jobs and cook dinner and then I watched My Kitchen Rules as it is the Grand Finale and I had forgotten it was on tonight till about half an hour before it started. I thought it was tomorrow night for some reason. So I watched it instead of reading as I’m not missing the grand finale after watching every damn episode of the season haha. So this wasn’t the best ReadAThon for me.


Blog Titles (22)

I read 223 pages of Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

three-dark-crowns-red

Blog Titles (23)

I listened to about an hour and a half of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

I don’t know the exact time as when listening to audiobooks before bed I put it on a sleep timer of 15 minutes and then reset it if I’m still awake. That way if I fall asleep then it will be easy to go back a couple minute to what I remember.. So I listened to somewhere between 1hr 15min to 1hr 30min.

Well that is all for this wrap up. Hopefully I will have a better time with the AYearAThon which starts at midnight tonight! Atleast it goes for a week, so I can get more read in that time haha.

Tag Sunday – The Chocolate Book Tag

Screen Shot 2017-04-16 at 9.50.08 pm

And I’m back for another tag! This one I thought should be easter themed! So that is what I searched and this is what I found!

Here we go!


1) Dark Chocolate – A book with a dark theme/content

I honestly can’t think of a book I have read that has a really dark theme or content, so I’m going with a book that is on my TBR that has dark themes.

train-1

2) White Chocolate – A light-hearted/humourous read

tumblr_mixxgtPAsX1s3jza0o1_500_Fotorfv

3) Milk Chocolate – A book with a lot of hype that you are dying to read

4) Chocolate With a Caramel Centre –  A book that makes you feel gooey on the inside

Well honestly I don’t think of any books as ‘gooey feeling’. So I turned to google and apparently Vampire Academy is a gooey read, I don’t see it but I’ll chuck it up anyway haha

VampireAcademy-NewCovers

5) A Wafer-Free KitKat – A book that surprised you lately

the_diabolic-3

 6) Snickers – A book you are going nuts about

I don’t really have an answer for this as I’m not ‘going nuts’ about a book right now. I’m going nuts about the Fantastic Beasts movie as I’ve watched it about 5 times in the last 2 weeks!

7) Hot Chocolate with Whipped Cream and Marshmallows – A comfort read that you turn to again and again

harry-potter-books-full-set

8) Box of Chocolates – A series that has something for everyone


I TAG:

Because I’ll be doing them every Sunday, I am only going to tag 1 person in each so I’m not tagging the same people all the time! So each week I will tag my latest follower! Hopefully there will be a new ones each week to tag.

My Name Is Daniela

And this is a brand new blog, go and follow!

Top 5 Wednesday – Books That Would Make Good Video Games

Screen Shot 2017-04-12 at 8.04.58 pm

This Meme is hosted by Thoughts On Tomes and the prompts can be found on Goodreads.

This week’s prompt is: Books That Would Make Good Video Games

There may be slight. spoilers in this post.


1. The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

This would be an amazing game! Navigating the ships would be so fun!

2. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

cover104679-medium

This world would be awesome to explore in game form! Discovering and exploring Weep &  exploring the dreams would be awesome too

3. The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

This would be an awesome story to follow! Trying to find out where the King was on the ley line.

4. Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Meeting new peculiar children would be awesome, navigating the world and trying to save the Ymbrynes. Would be awesome.

5. Harry Potter & Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them by J.K. Rowling

I know Harry Potter already has the games that follow the books/movies, but I want something different! I want a game that you start by receiving your owl and going shopping in Diagon Alley for your school supplies. Then go to Hogwarts on the Hogwarts Express and get sorted! Go to classes and perform spells in Transfiguration, Defence Against the Dark Arts & Charms, make potions, train creatures in Care of Magical Creatures & locate stars in Astronomy. Depending on what skills your best at you can graduate and find what job you would fit in and train in that and then go on to do that job in the wizarding world!

The same general Idea could happen with Fantastic Beasts too, maybe even Illvermorny being added in there or just finding Beasts and Training them, saving them or returning them to their homes!!

Someone needs to do this last one!


Well that is all for today! What books would you like to turn into games?!

Tag Sunday – The Nintendo Book Tag

Screen Shot 2017-04-09 at 10.22.00 pm

So I’m back for another tag! I didn’t do my Discussion post on friday as I worked, had a nap and then went to the pub and didn’t get home till 3 the next morning. I might try and do it sometime this week if I’m bored, but if not I will be back on Friday for this weeks Discussion Friday! I also haven’t been doing Goodreads Monday that much as it’s just getting a bit boring!

Now onto the questions!


1. NES (NINTENDO ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM): A CLASSIC YOU WANT TO READ

Well for this I’m choosing more of an author and that is Agatha Christie! I want to read as many as I can of her works! I will only show a couple I want to read!

2. SNES (SUPER NINTENDO): A SEQUEL YOU LIKED MORE THAN THE FIRST (CAN BE A SECOND BOOK IN A SERIES)

9780373212194.indd

I don’t really know if I have an answer for this question as nothing comes to mind when read this..

4. GAMECUBE: A POPULAR BOOK THAT DID NOT GO OVER SO WELL WITH YOU

5. WII: A NEW FAVORITE BOOK

6. NINTENDO POWER: FAVORITE GRAPHIC NOVEL SERIES OR A SERIES YOU WANT TO START

I don’t read graphic novels, so I don’t have an answer for this!

7. SUPER MARIO: A CHARACTER THAT YOU’D LOVE TO SQUISH LIKE A GOOMBA

Kadir, he is just a dick.

Traitor_to_the_Throne-667x1024

8. ZELDA: A NEWER FANTASY THAT YOU CONSIDER TO BE A MODERN CLASSIC

I don’t really understand this question completely. I’m assuming it means a fantasy that you think could be a classic one day?? As Modern and classic are basically opposites and I’ve never understood that..

Even though it’s a screenplay I think this could be a classic purely because it’s link to Harry Potter!

0portland_lbbg_revision2_fotor

9. SAMUS-ARAN: FAVORITE SCI-FI NOVEL OR ONE YOU WANT TO READ

Favourite Sci-Fi Novel on left and want to read on right

10. POKEMON: BOOK EDITIONS THAT YOU WANT TO COLLECT

11. DONKEY KONG: A BOOK WITH ORIGINAL CHARACTERS

12. NINTENDO FANDOM: FAVORITE NINTENDO GAME(S) OR GAME

Well I only own a Wii and I used to have a DS and I loved Mario & Mario Kart the most!


I TAG:

Because I’ll be doing them every Sunday, I am only going to tag 1 person in each so I’m not tagging the same people all the time! So each week I will tag my latest follower! Hopefully there will be a new ones each week to tag.

Book & Words


And that is all!

Top Ten Tuesday – Harry Potter Merchandise I Wish I Owned

Screen Shot 2017-04-04 at 3.35.02 pm

Top Ten Tuesday is a monthly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and you can find all the info and upcoming prompts Here.

This week’s prompts is: Fandom Freebie — top ten fandoms I’m in, 10 reasons X fandom is the best, must have merchandise for x fandom, etc. etc.

So I’m going with Harry Potter merchandise that I wished I owned! I have a fair bit of Harry Potter stuff, but there are so many things I wish I had and especially some things that are just so hard to get in Australia because shipping from official Warner Bros and similar sites are a bit crazy! Also most of these will be things that I just would not buy because of price. I wouldn’t spend that much on a single item that I quite simply wouldn’t use.


1. Wands!

I’m pretty sure that this is something all Harry Potter fans want to own! I do have 3 wands at the moment but none of them are the official ones and they aren’t exactly correct. I have Voldemort & Harry’s wands that I received from the GeekGear World of Wizardry Box, they are really good quality but they aren’t the proper ones and they aren’t exact copies, for example the voldemort wand from GeekGear is bright white but his wand should actually be a cream and brown colour. I also have Sirius Blacks wand, I got this from Wish which is a similar site to eBay and AliExpress if you don’t know what it is. This one only cost me under $20 AUD I think and it’s not perfect of course. It is a light up one but the piece where the batteries were was broken so I had to do a little DIY work on that and it’s also not really the right colour either, but I’m going to try and paint it with a better colour!

2. Gringott’s Coin Collection

PRP HP 7234

3. Brooms

4. The Horcruxes

PRP HP 7968

PRP HP 8177

PRP HP 7247

PRP HP 8689

5. Food!

Granted these wouldn’t last long! But I still wish I could get them!

6. Sorcerer’s Stone

PRP HP 7386

7. Gryffindor Hoodie

13a13177

8. Stationary

9. Gryffindor Banner

283e6e14

10. Harry Potter Funko Collection

I already have a few Funko’s in this collection, but there is so many more I want!

I already have Hermione in Yule Ball outfit, Neville with Trevor, Harry in Triwizard outfit, Ron in Yule Ball outfit, Cedric in Triwizard outfit, Draco in Quidditch robe with broom, Harry with Quidditch robe with nimbus, Dumbledore, Bellatrix in Azkaban outfit, Fred & George, Lucius in Death Eater Mask and Ron in Weasley jumper.


Well that is all for today! This was such an easy and fun post!

Tag Sunday – The Ultimate Harry Potter Tag

Screen Shot 2017-04-02 at 9.34.02 pm

So, as everyone knows, I’m obsessed with Harry Potter! I have did the Harry Potter Book Tag ages ago, but this is a different tag! The thing I love about this tag is your answers are Harry Potter related not just the questions having some link to Harry Potter.

Possible spoilers btw! So here we go!

I will be adding Quotes & Pics to this tag as who doesn’t love pics and Harry Potter quotes!


1. Favourite Book?

Either Order of the Phoenix or Deathly Hallows! I’m not going to list everything I loved but I loved Order of the Phoenix because of the DA and that it was the book that Ginny, Luna & Neville really joined Harry, Ron & Hermione! And I loved Deathly Hallows as that is where everything ends, so much just came together in that book and I really enjoyed little things about it like when Kreacher leads the house elves out of the kitchens to join the battle! Little things like that just made that book perfect for me!

“It’s high time your grandmother learned to be proud of the grandson she’s got, rather than the one she thinks she ought to have — particularly after what happened at the Ministry.” – Minerva Mcgonagall (About Neville)

2. Least Favourite Book?

This is so hard as I love them all! But I would have to say Chamber of Secrets. I loved Chamber of secrets but I loved all the rest just a little bit more! Philosopher’s Stone is where it all started and where we met everyone! Prisoner of Azkaban is where we meet my favourite character, Sirius Black! Goblet of Fire, just so much went on and Dragons! Order of the Phoenix, I explained above, as well as Deathly Hallows. And Half-Blood Prince, we learnt everything about Voldemort we could!

olly-moss-chamber-of-secrets-cover (1)

3. Favourite Movie?

Goblet of Fire! I loved the movie except that I wished they had added in Barty Crouch Jr.’s story and Fudge’s denial at the end! Because in the movie it just didn’t really add up with the start of the next movie like it did in the book!

6sASqcdrEHXxUhA3nFpjrRecPD2

4. Least Favourite Movie?

Order of the phoenix, there was just so much missed in the battle at the Ministry of Magic that it just annoyed me. I felt like it built and built and then the last battle was just meh in the movie!

harry-potter-and-the-order-of-the-phoenix-54f640895e3d2

5. Favourite Quote?

“Prongs rode again last night… You know, Harry, in a way, you did see your father last night… You found him inside yourself.” – Albus Dumbledore

tumblr_static_tumblr_static_f5dk61gaqbk0gkkw4o04co4ks_640

6. Favourite Weasley?

Can’t split them up! Fred & George!

“You’re a prefect? Oh Ronnie! That’s everyone in the family!”
“What are Fred and I? Next door neighbors?”
-Molly Weasley & Fre\d & George Weasley 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I

7. Favourite Female Character?

Book Ginny

“The thing about growing up with Fred and George,” said Ginny thoughtfully, “is that you sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.”

Ginny-Weasley-888x456

8. Favourite Villain?

I’m talking about horrible villain here, not villain that I actually like! Dolores Umbridge

“I WILL have order!” – Dolores Umbridge

eb6edd8b268b530c07092594185b0001

9. Favourite Male Character?

Sirius Black!

Sirius-Black-Wallpaper-sirius-black-32913976-1024-768

10. Favourite Professor?

Minerva McGonagall, she is such a badass!

“Get back!” shouted Ron, and he, Harry and Hermione flattened themselves against a door as a herd of galloping desks thundered past, shepherded by a sprinting Professor McGonagall. She appeared not to notice them: her hair had come down and there was a gash on her cheek. As she turned the corner, they heard her scream: “CHARGE!”

McGonagall_battle

11. Would you rather a) wash Snape’s hair or b) spend a day listening to Lockhart rant about himself?

If snape was tied down and couldn’t complain then hell yeah! That would be so satisfying and hilarious, make it all fluffy 😂

f71ddeb42fb60cdb7c5c02fe76b77159

12. Would you rather duel a) an elated Bellatrix or b) an angry Molly? 

Bellatrix, for 1) I love Molly and wouldn’t want to possibly hurt her! 2) Bellatrix killed my favourite character Sirius, so my anger could definitely be on a level with Molly’s!

not-my-daughter

13. Would you rather travel to Hogwarts using a) the Hogwarts Express or b) a flying car?

Well for a one of thing, it would be awesome to travel by flying car and then the other 6 years I could travel by train! As long as it’s a tad more reliable car that the Ford!  But if I had only one chance then I would choose the Hogwarts Express, just the experience would be amazing!

i002123

14. Would you rather give a) Voldemort a kiss or b) Umbridge a bubble bath?

Kiss voldemort, as long as it was surprise thing, would be hilarious his reaction, would probably get murdered straight away though! And at least it is over straight away! Giving umbridge a bubble bath would be a long thing that I would just hate!

harrypotter-voldemort-surprised

15. Would you rather fly a) a hippogriff or b) a Firebolt?

This is a hard one as I would love to try flying on a broom, but at the same time I love animals it would be amazing to fly on a hippogriff! I also feel like that is something that very few would have experienced whereas basically everyone could ride a broom, maybe not a Firebolt, but a broom.

giphy (1)

16. Is there a character you felt differently about in the movies?

Ginny, I just feel like the real her, the badass strong person just wasn’t showed as well! And also Kreacher, in the books he redeems himself in the last book so much! Whereas in the movie they don’t show that, so in the movie I just didn’t like him whereas in the book I really liked him in the end!

“The house-elves of Hogwarts swarmed into the entrance hall, screaming and waving carving knives and cleavers, and at their head, the locket of Regulus Black bouncing on his chest, was Kreacher, his bullfrog’s voice audible even above this din: ‘Fight! Fight! Fight for my Master, defender of house-elves! Fight the Dark Lord, in the name of brave Regulus! Fight!”

Harry-potter-deathly-hallows1_kreacher

17. Is there a movie you preferred to the book?

There isn’t any movies that I preferred to the book, however there is one scene that I prefer in the movie rather than the book. In the Deathly Hallows book McGonagall is descending the castle just after she discovers Harry is back and has the run in with Snape. In the movie they are in the great hall and Harry comes out in the open and the rest of the order comes up behind him, Minerva fights with Snape in front of everyone to defend Harry! I love that scene it was perfect and I just think the book scene just didn’t as big of an impact!

“Coward!” – Minerva McGonagall 

18. Richard Harris or Michael Gambon as Dumbledore? 

I liked both and I’m not choosing one or the other!

2223441-albus-dumbledore-dans-harry-potter-richard-harris-et-michael-gambon

19. Your top thing that you wanted in the movie that wasn’t in there?

Peeves! Need I say more?

“Which way did they go, Peeves?” Filch was saying. “Quick, tell me.”
“Say ‘please.'”
“Don’t mess with me, Peeves, now where did they go?”
“Shan’t say nothing if you don’t say please,” said Peeves in his annoying singsong voice.
“All right- PLEASE.”
“NOTHING! Ha haaa! Told you I wouldn’t say nothing if you didn’t say please! Ha ha! Haaaaaa!” And they heard the sound of Peeves whooshing away and Filch cursing in rage.”

Peeves_PM_B3C8M2FatLadyPortraitSlashedWithStudentsTeachersAndPeevesCrowdedAround_Moment

20. If you could remake any of the Harry Potter movies, which would it be?

Order of the Phoenix, but all I would change is have the full scenes from the Battle at the Ministry! And also the whole scene from where Fred & George left Hogwarts, including Peeves! I liked the movie one with the fireworks and stuff, but I loved the book one so much more!

“Give her hell from us, Peeves” – Fred Weasley

21. Which house was your first gut feeling you’d be a part of?

Gryffindor!

22. Which house were you actually sorted into on Pottermore? 

Gryffindor!

“You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry,
Set Gryffindors apart” – Sorting Hat

0.31_Gryffindor_Crest_Transparent

23. Which class would be your favorite?

Care of Magical Creatures! I loved Ag in school and that is just the magical version of that haha!

B3C6M3.jpg

24. Which spell do you think would be most useful to learn?

All of them would be useful, but Lumos would probably be the most useful as I would never have to carry my phone around just for a torch!

giphy

25. Which character do you think you’d instantly become friends with? 

This is so hard! Maybe Hermione because of her love for books and I also like the know it all part of her as I love learning interesting facts but I also wouldn’t necessarily read all those books myself! I also love the discussing and challenging my knowledge and I feel like Hermione is someone I could definitely do that with!

hermione-granger

26. If you could own one of the three Hallows, which would it be?

Elder Wand! I don’t like the idea of the resurrection stone personally and if you had the most powerful wand in the world then surely you could create a shield for yourself good enough.

voldemort-elder-wand-2-4278-1478224566-5_dblbig

27. Is there any aspect of the books you’d want to change?

Of course I would love to change some of the deaths in the book, but I still wouldn’t I don’t think!

Draco_disarms_Dumbledore

28. Favourite marauder?

Sirius/Padfoot! I love Sirius, so of course Padfoot is my favourite!

article-2041609-0E14413200000578-183_468x249

29. If you could bring one character back to life, which would it be?

Uhmm, Sirius!

 20140602133609P5_Sirius_Black

30. Hallows or Horcruxes?

Hallows, At least the Hallows you don’t have to murder someone to achieve!

I started rewatching this on Netflix as I was bored and couldn’t decide what to start watching.

Currently Reading

Well I actually finished reading Traitor To The Throne by Alwyn Hamilton this morning, so I’m not currently reading anything until I start another book tonight. I’m considering starting Tomorrow When The War Began by John Marsden though. I read it when i was in Year 9 or 10 in High School, but I don’t remember if I read the entire thing, but I know I really liked it and I want to read the whole series! It’s a pretty short book, so this should only take me a couple days.

Top 5 Wednesday – Future Classics

Screen Shot 2017-03-29 at 8.52.37 pm

This Meme is hosted by Thoughts On Tomes and the prompts can be found on Goodreads.

This week’s prompt is: Future Classics
–Let us know the books you think will be considered classics one day!

How old does a book have to be before it is considered a classic, that is what confuses me. But these books or series are the last 10 or 20 years?


1.  The Book Thief by Markus Zusak 

tumblr_inline_mtgom4vyta1r6v9g9

I feel like this book is already kind of considered a classic. It’s a book that I think everyone should read, even if you don’t usually read Historical Fiction. It’s eye opening and emotional and definitely a future classic, if not already!

2. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

Illuminae-Cover

I feel like this book is so unique and could definitely be a classic. There was so much hype and love for this book when it came out and when Gemina was released. I actually haven’t heard many people say they have disliked it! It’s definitely something that will be remembered!

3. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

cvr9781847394071_9781847394071_hr

This book address so many issues that many people have had to deal with in their lives. This book is another one that everyone should read. I know not everyone likes this book, but I still think it should be a future classic.

4.  The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

the-hunger-games-book-cover

This book came out in 2008, but when it’s movie came out everyone started reading the series even more and then reading all these other dystopian. That’s kinda when the phase started with it. And because of that and it just so well know, that is why I consider it a future dystopian. Not necessarily the other 2 books in the series and I know a lot of people have issues with Allegiant, but this book in particular definitely

5. Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

kkl10ts

You had to know this was coming! Harry Potter is already a classic really! And I don’t think I need to explain this one.


Well that is all for today!

HELP ME + #HPWeekendAThon TBR

screen-shot-2016-11-24-at-5-31-11-pm

Would you look at that another ReadAThon! This ReadAThon was created by 2 BookTubers! Chelsea @ Chelseadollingreads and April @ Aprilius Maximus. I discovered this ReadAThon through Bex @ BexnBookx go and check out her TBR! 😀

This ReadAThon runs for 4 days: 12:00am on Friday the 2nd of December to 11:59pm on Monday the 5th of December in your time zone! There are 5 challenges that reach relate to a Harry Potter character!

Because I have recently quit my job and I don’t want to be spending extra money I am going to try and fit books that I already own into each of these categories!


The Challenges and my TBR

Challenge 1

Harry:  read a book that BookTube has deemed the ‘Chosen One’ (a hyped book)

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

I’m pretty sure ou can consider this book to have a lot of hype, if not the book for Challenge 2 would also go in this category, but I am going to attempt to read 5 books.. But if that doesn’t happen I will just try and fit the books I do read into the categories! We will see how many I get through!

I am also going to try and read this book last as I have a copy of A Torch Against the Night as well. So, if I read this last I will read A Torch Against the Night straight afterward because I really do hate reading one book in the series and leaving it a couple months to read the next!

 

Challenge 2

Hermione: Read a book that has a badass female character

9780141340135

 

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Well, I googled ‘books with badass female characters’ and this was the first book on the list I saw and I happen to already have a copy of this! So that is why I chose it!

This is also the book that could fit in challenge 1. I discovered this book when I started watching BookTube as so many people were talking about it because the next book in the series had come out!

I have never read a fairytale retelling so this will be an interesting read!

 

 

Challenge 3

Ron: Read a red or orange book

heartless-cover

 

Heartless by Marissa Meyer

I recently received this book in The YA Chronicles subscription box and even though the main colour on the cover is black, I’m still going to use this! Considering I have never read a fairytale retelling, like I said before I am going to be read 2 in this ReadAThon. I have also never read anything by Marissa Meyer and I am reading 2 in this ReadAThon.. So I hope I like her writing! This book could also go under the Hyped book challenge seen as people have been talking about this for months coming up to its release!

 

 

Challenge 4

Dumbledore: Read a book that features LGBTQIA+ Characters

Okay, so here is where I need help! As I said above I don’t want to purchase any books for this ReadAThon. I don’t have any books that are well known for their LGBTQIA Characters. So I need help..

I will put a list of all the physical books on my TBR and also the iBooks that I have and if you know that any of these have LGBTQIA characters please let me know!

A lot of the iBooks I have, I’ve got no idea what they are because a mate gave me copies or they were free downloads and sounded interesting at the time! And checking them on Goodreads most of the time doesn’t help as most people just label books as Diverse and Diverse means more than just LGBTQIA.

SO PLEASE HELP ME OUT!

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them by J.K. Rowling

So, obviously, I am going with the book by a favourite author part! I love the Harry Potter series and J.K. Rowling! So, I am so keen to get to this book and dive back into the Wizarding World! And guess what guys?! Finally, a book and movie that are exactly the same! HAHA. Anyway. I will hopefully be going to see the movie during the weekend that this ReadAThon is on! It comes out in the cinema in the next town on the 1st, so I will be straight there that weekend haha.

 

 


Well, that’s my TBR! Please help me find a book that I can read for challenge 4. If I can’t find something I’m just going to skip that Challenge and if I get time I will just read a random book, so I have 5.
