Re-Readathon Five


I’m taking part in another rereadathon! 

I’ve been thinking recently about the kind of YA books I’ve enjoyed reading recently and how I missed out in a lot of YA books as a teen because I moved on to adult fiction so young. The thing is… as much as there are some YA books that I do love, they’re not written for me. I’m twenty five, I can’t and shouldn’t judge them as their intended readership. So, I made a list of the books I enjoyed aged 10-13, found the ones that I still own and there’s my TBR for this week! I’m going mega old school, back to 2002!

My list for the week is:

The Raging Quiet by Sheryl Jordan

Almost Perfect by James Pope

The Misfits by James Howe

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

If I can find them and have the time I’d also quite like to reread Another Life by Frank McGinty, Doll by Nicky Singer and Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D Taylor.

Here’s to a busy week with old favourites!

Discworldathon: Colour of Magic read-a-long!


Hello! I’m hosting this month’s theme for Discworldathon: Wizards! A quick poll chose The Colour of Magic as our book for the month and it makes sense to start with the very beginning!

Fortunately The Colour of Magic is, against all tradition with Discworld novels, split in to four handy parts… one for every week in February! I know we’re two days in already but if we fal a few pages behind it’s no big deal. 

So, the month is going to be set up like this, with discussions going on on Twitter/Instagram under the hashtag #discworldathon, the readalong goodreads thread and/or here if people fancy it (wherever you like really!):

Week 1: The Colour of Magic

Week 2: The Sending of Eight

Week 3: The Lure of the Wyrm 

Week 4: Close to the Edge

The last weekend (25/26th) I’ll also be hosting a mini readalong of The Last Hero- the graphic short story about wizards trying to stop an old man from killing the gods.

I’ll mainly be posting on Goodreads and Twitter to save people’s timelines on here!

Finally, I’m also hosting a giveaway on twitter if you would like the chance to win a Discworld novel of your choice!
