Booktube-A-Thon July 2016: DAY 4

Day 4, over halfway done! I started The Magicians by Lev Grossman today, but only made 34 pages. Its a really good 34 pages though!! I really can’t wait to see what is happening… George R.R. Martin himself said, “The Magicians is to Harry Potter as a shot of Irish whiskey is to a glass of weak tea.” I MEAN, COME ON!!! This is gonna be good. The morning of Day 4 brought the panic of Booktube-A-Thon being over halfway over, and the fact that I’ve only completed ONE BOOK.…

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,…

She is best known best for her most popular work, the Shopaholic Series,…
