So, today I’m going to be informing you about two things, Rainbowthon and a new post schedule for the blog.
Let’s start with the schedule. I will still be posting daily, but it’ll be once daily. Right now, on Wednesdays and Sundays I post twice.
As much as I love it, it’s sucking up all my free time which would fantastic if I had no other hobbies…but I do!
So therefore the new schedule looks a little something like this –
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday = Film reviews
Wednesday and Saturday = Book reviews
Sunday = Weekly update
I hope you’re all OK with the new schedule! It gives me a chance to spend a little of my time on other things, such as writing.
NOW, onto the second subject! RAINBOWTHON! \o/
More specifcally Rainbowthon 2.0. It’s a reading challenge in its second year, (hence the 2.0).You can find more about it here.
It’s starts, well, TODAY! There’s still time to join in though. From the 7th to 14th of February. You basically choose 4 – 6 books to read over the course of the week.
They have to be colours from the rainbow. Red, yellow, green, orange, purple, blue (indigo counts as blue). You can choose all your books to be one specific colour.
You can tweet about it using #rainbowthon on twitter. If you are, let me know in the comments and link me your twitter so I can stalk you!
OK, so onto the bit everyone’s really interested in. In no particular order, My choices! \o/
Red = Battle royale by Koushun Takami
I’ve been looking forward to reading this for aaaaages. I’m doing a buddy read of it with @mybookjacket because choosing a book of over 600 pages to read in one day clearly mean we’re geniuses. We did start reading this yesterday because of this.
Orange = Ready player one by Ernest cline
Another one I’ve been super excited to read. I’ve heard a lot about this book and it’s right up my alley.
Blue = The infinite sea by Rick Yancey
This is the sequel to The fifth wave which I’ve read, (obviously), and enjoyed so I always planned to read the next one. Fingers crossed I like this one too!
Green = Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets by J K Rowling
This is a re-read for me. I haven’t read this series since they were first published so I’m long overdue it. I’m expecting to drown myself in tears of nostalgia. (The spine is green. It totally counts.)
Purple = The legacy by R. A. Salvatore
This is probably the only book on the list that’s a little bit of a risk. The blurb interests me, but we’ll see if I enjoy it or not
Yellow = The bees by Laline Paull
Just look at that glorious cover! It’s BEAUTIFUL! I would probably have never noticed this book before if it hadn’t have been @mybookjacket who recommended it to me. It isn’t my usual kind of reading, but I am insanely excited to read it!
Most of these I’ll also be doing book reviews on except Harry Potter because we don’t need another person recommending you Harry Potter. It’s awesome. Read it. There you go.
Also, a shout out to some other bloggers taking part in rainbowthon! (Sorry if I missed anybody! D:)
