Readathon | The Bookie Trials – WinterQuest

Readathon | The Bookie Trials – WinterQuest

There are only a handful readathons I participate in every year. The Bookie Trials is one of those readathons. One of my favourite bookTubers (Rachel Marie), created this readathon and after successfully reading through all the prompts last July, I can wholeheartedly say that I adore this one very much!

What if things go differently? | Dealing with plot twists in life.

“Life happens while you’re busy making other plans.” It is a quote that I can only wholeheartedly agree with. Often, things don’t go the way you planned or expected them to go.

Also, in my life, I have had to deal with bears on the road and unplanned plan changes. Sometimes, those changes are beautiful, sometimes not at all.

Sadie by Courtney Summers

Sadie by Courtney Summers

I’ve finished my reread of Sadie and it is still one of the best audiobooks I’ve listened to in a long time! This time around, I combined listening to the audiobook with ‘physically’ reading along on my eReader.

My 5-star rating remains as solid as it was the first time around. This has to be one of the most gut-wrenching, hard-hitting books I have ever read and I think this will be one of those stories, I’ll want to keep reading for a long time. Read more
