BookCon Haul and 2 Giveaways!

Long time no see blog! It feels like it’s been ages since I last updated you guys on here (8 months to be exact!). Recently I’ve had the urge to come back and start making posts again!IMG_1063

This past weekend I was lucky enough to be able to attend BookCon 2017 which was held in New York City, New York. Being from a small town in Iowa and going to New York City was a huge experience for me! This was my second BookCon that I have attended (my first time attending was in 2016 in Chicago). This was also very different from last year because last year it was over one day while this year was over two days. If I had to rate BookCon 2017 it would be 3.75/5 stars. Day 1 I got some amazing titles and went to a signing, but I didn’t get much compared to last year. Day 2 was a completely different story, and I got a ton of stuff especially from the Scholastic booth! I did, however, feel that publishers weren’t handing out as many ARCs (Advanced Readers Copies) this year. I know the Epic Reads area was a mess and a mosh pit for lining up and trying to receive ARCs when they were dropping and it was a less fun version of Disney World at that point.

Even though it wasn’t like last year’s BookCon, it was still an absolute blast! I finally got to meet up with BookTubers that I have been watching for years and I was reunited with friends I made last year! Overall I can’t wait to get into all the ARCs and chapter samples I received this year at BookCon!

Since I got a bunch of goodies on day 2 of BookCon I decided to host TWO giveaways on Libib’s BookTube channel. Rules are…

  1. Must be 18 or have parents permission
  2. MUST live in the U.S.
  3. Must be subscribed to Libib’s channel
  4. And last but not least leave a comment for one or both giveaways

May the odds be ever in your favor and I will see you soon with a new bookish post!

 

 

Current Thoughts on Reading…

So this month has been ultimately crazy. With projects on projects and prom, I’ve been busy up to the brink. But here’s the bad thing that comes with all of this craziness, no reading time what so ever. Yeah, I haven’t enjoyed the books I’ve read this year and lack of free time is not helping my feelings for the books that I am currently reading. I just feel reading is more of a chore than a fun free time activity for myself.

For the next month I plan on reading a bunch more. My last day of school is quickly approaching which brings the positive side; more time to read! I’ve picked a few books from my contemporary section so that hopefully this can get me back into my love for reading. The books are…

1.   Eleanor & Park by: Rainbow Rowell

I don’t know what’s up with my reading lately and I think I just need to take a break from all distractions and school work to just feel no pressure at all, and get back into the swing of my love for reading.
