Booktube-A-Thon July 2016: DAY 2


Day 2 has come to a close!

I finished my first book today, Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos! It was spectacular! Very engrossing and moving. Wonderful writing, fully of depth and content. I will definitely give another one of Marisa’s books a try, even though this is not a genre I would reach for first. More encouraging is the fact that this is a favorite author of the owner of my favorite bookstore in Northern Michigan!

I read another 50-some pages of my “after sunset” challenge book, Asylum by Madeleine Roux. It’s eerie but, nothing bit has happened yet… a few minor happens are foreshadowing what is to come though… which seems creeeeepy!! Hopefully it creeps me out, because books generally do not do it for me 🙂

So since my current book is for “after sunset” only, I need to pick another book!! I’m thinking I will move into The Magicians (Book 1) by Lev Grossman tomorrow as my “book-to-movie adaptation” challenge book, because I’m really really excited to watch the first season of it on the Syfy channel. Okay so its a “book-to-TV-show adaptation…” but I’m sure Booktube will forgive me. So season 1, which I think is Book 1 (of 3), aired a while ago, but you can still get the full episodes for free on the Syfy website HERE!!! Season 2 airs in January 2017. But more info to come on that when I start reading that book 🙂
