5 Bookish Aesthetic Boards

I thought it be fun to put a few aesthetic boards together for some of my favorite books and share them with you all. Hopefully they will get you excited to read some of my favorites. The aesthetic boards took way longer to put together than I thought they would, but Im happy with the results considering how hard it was to come up with picture ideas for some of them. Im thinking of making more of these in the future but for now I have 5 to talk about.

10 Graphic Novel Reviews

Ive already talked a little bit about some these graphic novels in my monthly wrap ups, but since they were received for review I figured they deserved their own post. I talk about so many books in my wrap ups that sometimes the comics are overlooked and theres some amazing ones on this list that definitely deserve more attention. I cant believe there was actually a time where I avoided them. I decided to put a bunch of them together because my comic reviews tend to be pretty short. I don't know if its just me, but graphic novels dont usually leave me with much to say. Plus they're so short I dont want to give too much away. They are however great for readathons and getting over book hang overs so Ive been reading a lot of them more lately. For todays post I have 10 I want to share my thoughts on so lets get started.

Alessandras Interview - Shadows Between Us

I saw this idea on Books Amino and thought it would a unique way to gush about a new favorite character. Once I answered all the questions I realized it read like fan fiction, but this interview is pretty fan fiction so that was a new experience for me. Ive never written anything like it before, but I had so much fun I think I might do more in the future.

For this post I decided to interview the main character from the Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller who also wrote Daughter of the Pirate King and Warrior if the Wild. I just recently finished the book and its become an all time favorite. This was her best book to date and Levenseller has cemented herself as a favorite author of mine.

I will have a review go up closer to publication, but it doesnt come out until February 25th, 2020 so this interview is a quick teaser as to why you should put it on your TBR, especially if a slytherin romance is up your alley. Now lets get on with the interview.

Fantasy JourneyAThon TBR - Harry Potter

This readathon takes place from August 10th to the 19th. My TBR is a little ambitous for me since I haven't been reading more than a couple books a week at most, but it will be fun to try. Ill probably not read them in order since I read multiple books at once, but if I dont finish all the challenges by the time the readathon ends Ill only count up to whatever challenge I didnt end completing when I post my wrap up. Im just doing this readathon for fun, but if you want higher stakes you can join a Hogwarts house and earn points. You can find the information for the readathon here. I love readathons with maps and since I joined the last round I knew I wanted to do this one as well. This round is Harry Potter themed which works well with the NEWTs readathon Im also doing this month.

My Royal Court Book Tag - Original

I first created this original book tag on Books Amino April 13th 2018. Now thats its been over a year and I finally started my own blog I figured I would redo the tag so I can post the new version on here. I did change number 6 a little since I found the original question was a little too similar to another question. The tags is all about picking different fictional characters for your very own court. Ive added a list below of all the lovely people I could find that did the tag. I love seeing all your answers so feel free to do it even if I havent tagged you and let me know in the comments so I can add you to the list. If you've already done it and I didnt add you please let me know so I can do it. Now without further ado lets get into the tag.

July 2019 Reading Wrap Up

Even though I didnt read as many books this month I did manage to pick up a few amazing reads. Besides that, there was one major disappointment and the rest were really good. I did read a bunch of graphic novels and novellas to complete the challenges in the different readathons I was particpating in. Im hoping to read more next month but for now lets get into what I read.

#ARCAugust 2019 Reading Plans

I have more than just these six books planned for August since the entire month will be dedicated to the NEWTs readathon. I have a couple from last month I still want to read and once thats done these six will be my priority. I havent been reading as much lately, but if I somehow manage to finish all of those Ill get to the other ones on my NEWTs TBR. If I run out of time Ill switch out some books for comics to make sure I can complete each challenge needed for my career. You can find my full NEWTs TBR here.

The Book Junkie Trials Wrap Up

This readathon took place during the entire month of July. Theres four teams with different paths/challenges as well as strength and weaknesses for each. We also have to stick to our original TBR and have to read them in order of our path. This wasnt easy, but I managed it. While I was slowly making my way through my path I ended up reading some other things to completed the other challenges. You can find all the information on the readathons Twitter Account You should also check out the lovely creator Rachael Marie on her Booktube Channel.
