Booktube-a-thon Wrap -up 2017

Hello Bibiliomanics,

Here is my wrap up for 2017 Booktube-a-thon!!!

Alice in Wonderland By Lewis Carroll & Illustrated by Camille Rae GarciaAlice in Wonderland

This book was such as weird read. I’ll be honest half the time I had no idea what was going on. The ending was a bit disappointing. However, the art style of this book was very beautiful and I am so glad I read this novelization rather then the with the traditional art work. I really want to get to “Through the Looking Glass”. I would like to see if there will be more answers about the whimsical world of wonderland. I do have to say in regards to book to movie adaptation, the new Tim Burton adaptation was awesome and I enjoyed it a lot more than the book.

Suicide Letters from beautiful Girls

Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls By Lynn Weingarten

This book was suspense full. Everything that I predicted to happen did not happen. It had me at the edge of my seat for the majority of the time. I thought that the climax of the story was very well done however the resolution was very rushed. I also thought that the conclusion could have tied more ends together instead of leaving it to reader interpretation.

NewmooncoverNew Moon ( Currently Still Reading)  by Stephanie Meyer

As I am still reading this, I just have to sayI am enjoying it a lot. I loved the Twilight  Saga when it first came out and I still enjoy it years later as I am rereading it. I remember I didn’t enjoy “New Moon”, very much the first time I read it because there is less vampire action in it. This time around I am very much enjoying getting to know Jacob’s character which I feel I didn’t give a chance the first time I read this series.

Booktube-A-Thon Day 2: Reflections

Hey Bibliomaniacs,

7/25/17 3:18 pm: I came home from work and changed straight in my pjs, grabbed a bag of sun chips and finally finished my first read of booktube-a-thon. I

Suicide Letters from beautiful Girls

finished “Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls”. It was very fast paced, yet the book left a lot of lose ends. I think that it also took more of a mocking tone to suicide rather than rising awareness. I think that the title of this book was a little misleading. Check out my full review @ SUICIDE NOTES FROM BEAUTIFUL GIRLS

I am contemplating if I want to continue reading “Ariel” by Sylvia Plath or if I want to start reading “Alice in Wonderland”. I think I’m going to start of with “Alice in Wonderland”.

Later 6:19 pm: I read only like 12 pages of “Alice in Wonderland”

Ariel

before I took a 2 hour nap. Time to work out, any readers do beach body? Today we are killing it with T-25. Shaun T is the MAN!!!

EVEN Later 9:36 pm: If for some very strange reason you thought that after that work-out I had a healthy dinner. Umm, guess again. Unless we consider Costco Cheese Pizza to be protein filled, with a serving of vegetables from the tomato sauce. But, I was craving pizza really bad. I wish I could say that in the last 3 hours I made more progress in “Alice in Wonderland”. The answer would be nope, no, nada, net etc. ( That’s as far as my no vocabulary goes in foreign languages.)

 

But, really I’m going to read now. I am finishing this blog post on the start of day 3. I ended up going to bed around 11 pm last night.

Alice in Wonderland

 

 

I got to page 69 in “Alice in Wonderland”.  The beginning of the book was very confusing and I had no idea what was going on. The movies do a way better job of explaining how Alice gets through to Wonderland.

Title: HeartlessHeartless

Author: Marissa Meyer

Pages: 416

Publisher: Feiwel And Friends

Release Date: November 8,2016

Synopsis: Long before she was the terror of Wonderland — the infamous Queen of Hearts — she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the yet-unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend and supply the Kingdom of Hearts with delectable pastries and confections. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next Queen.
At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the king’s marriage proposal, she meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship.

Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans. (Goodreads)

Marina’s thought corner: 

I don’t think that I have ever been more excited for a book. I can not believe that there is more wonderland for me to explore. I have a slight obsession with anything related to “Alice in Wonderland”. I can’t wait for this book to come out. I really enjoy Marissa Meyer’s writing and I know that she will bring a very interesting new twist to the “Alice in Wonderland” story.
