Hi, Today I bring you my wrap up for Booktubathon 2017, it was a really good experience the only thing I regret is that I had to do a lot of things in that week I think i could have done it better if it wasnt for that.
I only completed 3 books for a total of 318 pages.
BOOK WITH A PERSON ON THE COVER
Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops – Jen Campbell, 119 pgs.
From ‘Did Beatrix Potter ever write a book about dinosaurs?’ to the hunt for a paperback which could forecast the next year’s weather; and from ‘I’ve forgotten my glasses, please read me the first chapter’ to ‘Excuse me… is this book edible?: here is a book for heroic booksellers and booklovers everywhere.
An entertaining book of funny things and strange expressions, is fast and easy to read and I get some laughs, I think it would be good to leave a reading slump.
A BOOK FEATURING A CHARACTER DIFFERENT THAN YOU
Fables Vol. 1 Bill Willingham, 128 pgs,
When a savage creature known only as the Adversary conquered the fabled lands of legends and fairy tales, all of the infamous inhabitants of folklore were forced into exile. Disguised among the normal citizens of modern-day New York, these magical characters have created their own peaceful and secret society within an exclusive luxury apartment building called Fabletown. But when Snow White’s party-girl sister, Rose Red, is apparently murdered, it is up to Fabletown’s sheriff, a reformed and pardoned Big Bad Wolf (Bigby Wolf), to determine if the killer is Bluebeard, Rose’s ex-lover and notorious wife killer, or Jack, her current live-in boyfriend and former beanstalk-climber.
It wasn´t what I expected, I always liked the stories and I thought I love this, but the plot was loose with a mystery that didn´t make much sense and didn´t see how the detective solved it. It was at least entertaining and has a new way of presenting the characters of fairytales (at least something I had not seen)
A BOOK IN ONE DAY
Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies (Pottermore Presents #1), 71 pgs. (This wasn’t the book I had in my TBR for that challengue)
Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing from the Pottermore archives: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com with some exclusive new additions. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world.
These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney’s life, and you’ll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way.
I loved to know more about the life of Minerva and Lupine. There are some parts too informative about things that did not interest me so much I think this wasn´t necessary. Thr writting style was good.
I also read: (Incompleted)
20 of 80 pages-Lady Susan Jane Austen
A HYPED BOOK
119 of 242 pages –We were liars . E. Lockhart
of 83 pages The little Prince Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (I hadn’t decided which book to read, so I started both)
A BOOK ONLY OUTDOORS
82 of 377 pages –The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet Bernie Su and Kate Rorick
Despite I don´t read all and I dont like all I read but despite of that I think it was sucessful, because I could spend more time reading and reconnect with books again.
