First Lines Fridays – April 30, 2021

Welcome back to my blog! Today I'm bringing you another First Lines Fridays post!

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

WWW Wednesday – April 28, 2021

It's been so freaking long since I've done a WWW Wednesday and I'm kind of glad I skipped so many weeks because April has proved to be a terrible reading month. I couldn't finish anything for weeks but I finally have some books to update you all on!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Taking on a World of Words, where you answer the following three questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What have you recently finished?
  • What are you reading next?

Trope-ical Readathon (March 2021) Wrap Up

Hi everyone! If you've been following me on here or on Twitter, my partner and I hosted another round of Trope-ical Readathon this past month. Today I'll finally be going through the books that I read!

Once again, I was on Team Romance and my goal was to complete all 15 challenges and read all Team Books for a total of 20 books. This round, I ended with a total of 34 books (24 books, 10 manga)

Since there are a lot of books to cover, I'm just going to break them down by rating. I'm leaving out the 10 graphic novels I read but if you're curious, they were the first 10 volumes of Inuyasha. I'm also leaving out Twilight by Stephenie Meyer because it was a reread and I couldn't separate my adult feelings from high school nostalgia.
