I am also currently participating in the #WordForWord readathon, you can find my TBR video for it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRt2WBYD6j0&t=1s

 Here is a link to my friend's (the hostess for #WordForWord) blog post about it: https://dbooksandreviews.blogspot.com/2018/04/readathon-announcement.html


The #WordForWord ReadAThon is from April 7th - April 14th, so feel free to join! There are reading challenges, blogging challenges, and video challenges (For those with YouTube).


I did not read as much as I had hoped to for the #AprilAThon, but I did manage to knock out some books that had been in my ''To- Read'' pile for too long lol. I had fun, and I at least finished some books! That counts right?





If you were doing the #AprilAThon as well, how did you do? Were you happy with what you accomplished? Are you looking foreward to any other ReadAThons as well??


Thanks for Reading!! <3

  1. Wintersong is in my TBR list. What made you give it a 2 star rating? Just curious if it should stay on my TBR list or if I should skip it.

    1. It was good, I enjoyed it. WARNING there is some adult themes in the book. I just didn't enjoy it as much as I had wanted too, I loved the plot and world and all- but the main character I could barely tolerate most of the book.
      I would suggest reading it, it was overall good. I might decide I like it better after reading book two, but currently I'm not that big of a fan.
