We all spend a lot of time on the internet talking about what we do. We read this thing, we play this game, we like this band. However, we don’t often discuss things that we don’t do. There are many genres that bloggers don’t read from, me included, and i want to talk a little bit about genres that i barely read from, or think i will never read from.
Today is the day that we start our eagerly awaited read-along! We have been hosting read-alongs on this blog for as long as we’ve been running it (over two years now, can you believe it?) and this Christmas is no different! A few weeks ago we announced that our read-along book will be I’ll Be Home For Christmas, a collection of short stories from a load of our favourite YA authors!
The end of the year is fast approaching and that gives me time to think about all the books that i’ve read (or not read) in 2017. I’m with everyone else in the wondering where the year has gone this time. However, i’m more than excited to leave this years reading behind and start a whole new year of reading.
We announced our read-along for I’ll Be Home For Christmas a few weeks back, and it officially starts in just a few days (11th of December to the 24th if anyone is interested in joining in still)! I’m so excited to get to our read-along this year, and what’s even more exciting is that we are hosting the blog tour for the read-along!
I feel like I’ve been waiting months and months for Wonder to be released. Back in the summer, as I was highly anticipating this movie, I picked up the book ahead of time. I knew that Stephan Chbosky was set to direct the movie, and as one of my favourite people in the entire world, I knew that along with loving the book and him on board the movie, I was bound to love it.
