I’m BACK

I KNOW I KNOW. Where have I been?! I’ve been on my booktube channel. So I’ll be back to posting here. New year! New start!🙂 I’m going to do my best to try post regularly, but I ‘ve been thinking of moving to blogspot. Backwards right? I just don’t know as of right now. I’m not really enjoying the wordpress platform and I don’t have my own domain. So it’s still not as flexible. So stay tuned!

Thoughts On Thursdays | Introduction & To Be Read

ThoughtsOnThursday

Thoughts on Thursdays is a feature that Katie @ Books and Katie created. It is a weekly read along that anyone can participate in. I met Katie on youtube. We are both book tubers as well. We have been messaging back forth about this feature she created, and I was so glad that she included me in the start of it! (Thanks  Katie!) We will be hosting this weekly read-along on our blogs. WOO WOO! (i’m excited)

Like I mentioned before, Thoughts on Thursdays is weekly read along where a book was chosen by either Katie or me (October and November have been planned out).  We have about 5 days to read a book and then we post our “Thoughts” on Thursday! Sounds super fun right??? 

Weeee

YESS FUNNN! I think so! But, obviously, this read along feature is for fast readers. It is definitely recommended for readers who can read an entire book in at least 1-3 days. (Yes, I know! But there are a lot of us out there haha).  BUT, if you want to read with us anyways even if you don’t think you’re a fast reader please DO! What’s the harm in trying because you never know. The book we pick for the week may be a real page turner for you and you may actually read the book REALLY fast! :) 

So, how does it work you ask?

Well, you will be able to see the schedule on either Katie’s blog or my blog for the month of October. See the book we chose, and if you’re interested, start reading along with us. When you finish the book, you would post all your “Thoughts” on Thursday. You would either post them on your book blog, a video on your book tube channel, a review on goodreads, or even twitter. Tag everything  #ThoughtsOnThursdays. Also, when you post your review or thoughts, we then  add discussion questions even if you just ask “What are your thoughts on the book?” and we can answer them and discuss the books! I believe this was Katie’s main point of creating this so there can be more book discussions which I love!

I hope people who come across my blog or my videos on booktube try to participate in this. It’s fun and a great way to foster discussion about the books we are actually reading. I know on booktube it’s all about the hauls and book tags, but I want to see more discussion about the books we are actually reading. I know I’m guilty of posting way too many hauls and tags. Plus, we can discuss everything about the book since people have actually read the book. No need to be afraid of spoilers! I’m just so excited to do this and hope you will do it too because WHY?

The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas

Synopsis via goodreads:  Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she’s being told. The one prophesied for years to be the savior of The Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the greatest mage tyrant the world has ever known. A suicide task for anyone let alone a sixteen-year-old girl with no training, facing a prophecy that foretells a fiery clash to the death. Prince Titus of Elberon has sworn to protect Iolanthe at all costs but he’s also a powerful mage committed to obliterating the Bane to avenge the death of his family—even if he must sacrifice both Iolanthe and himself to achieve his goal. But Titus makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the Bane closing in, he must choose between his mission and her life.

So there it is! Thoughts on Thursday is about to start and I know I’m excited. HOW EXCITED??
