Reading Slumps

Aaaaah the Apes are attacking me !

I’m fighting a reading slump right now. I was on a serious book reading buzz..until yesterday. And yesterdays activities consisted of me sleeping the day away, literally,  I didn’t wake up until 6pm. Today though I plan on reading as much of Redwall as I possibly can. BUT !! my question to you, blog reading traveller, is how does one avoid a reading slump?

Booktubeathon – Day 7


This makes me sad, my first booktubeathon and I totally enjoyed it. It was awesome. I finished Olalla by Robert Louis Stevenson and I started Redwall by Brian Jacques. I participated in a few sprints, made some new twitter friends during the day and finished a book.

Custom YouTube URL


After complaining for so long about not having a custom URL I FINALLY have one. YAAAAAY ! now I can actually just say the name of my channel instead of linking someone to a video. EEEEEK! Is it normal to be this excited about a Custom URL? hahahaha

Anyways if you’re interesting in viewing my channel you can check me out at (someone already has the URL FullyBooked T__T)

I hope you enjoy my videos but most importantly, I hope you’re enjoying the book you’re reading.

Booktubeathon – Day 6

I started and finished The Umbrella Academy: Dallas by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba.  Aaaaah such an epic graphic novel, I was totally biased because I’m such a My Chemical Romance fan, but this book totally exceeded my expectations.  The artwork was gorgeous, I loved that it was gory…I seem to love graphic novels that are super dark and gory.  I need to read Volume 1 though lol

Booktubeathon – Day 5

Ok I knew that Booktubeathon was going to be difficult…but I definitely wasn’t ready for it hahaha

Today wasn’t so great in terms of reading because I didn’t get much done BUT I did purchase a whole bunch of books that I really didn’t need. I think I’m going to swap out two of my current books for two of the new books.  I think the reason I’m not reading as much as I want to is because I’m not actually interested in the books I’m trying to read. So I’m going to switch it up and hopefully I read more.

Otherwise I didn’t do any reading 😦 and I just finished editing my mini vlog, which is currently uploading as we speak (i’ll link it here when it’s done :D). But I’m hoping to stay up suuuuper late and read. This sort of feels like I’m studying and trying to catch up on homework or something hahaha how are you guys going? and how many books have you guys gotten through?

You’re probably closer to to completing your Booktubeathon TBR list compared to me hahaha. Enjoy reading, don’t give up, WE CAN DO THIS !!

Take care

Booktubeathon – Day 4

I thought I was super failing at this yesterday and the day before…but nothing compares to the amount of no reading I did today.

Super busy at work and visited my friends new born. It doesn’t sound like much but damn ! Took so much time and energy, I didn’t even pick up a book.  And now I’m home, it’s 9:55pm and I’m exhausted and ready to sleep.

I did do a small amount of reading on the way to work but that was it. I haven’t even edited my mini vlog yet…but even then I don’t have much footage because I was so busy *the struggle is real*

I plan on making up for it tomorrow though so that should be great otherwise I’m gonna have to do a whole lot of power sprints in the weekend. Wish me luck everyone. 

How are you doing? I hope Day 4 was more successful for you then it was for me 😀

Booktubeathon – Day 3

It’s 11:11pm on Wednesday, 5 August and I should really be sleeping for work tomorrow…but instead I’m here, filling you in on todays activities.  Today was a much more successful day in terms of reading, drinking mugs and mugs of tea, and participating in Booktubeathon challenges but I think that was mainly because I had a day off work hehe

Booktubeathon – Day 2

Day 2 is complete…and it was a bit more successful then day 1. Again I spend most of my day at work, but was able to read on the bus ride to work and back home.  I finished reading Live, Love, Lead by Brian Houston and started reading The Revolution of Character by Dallas Willard & Don Simpson. However, when I got home and chilled out for a bit, I decided to start reading The Tales of Beedle the bard by J K Rowling.

Booktubeathon 2015: Day 1

Hello there,

So today marks the first day of Booktubeathon and also the first time I’m participating in a readathon. So far…I’ve procrastinated so much it’s insane. Although most of my day is spent at work, so I don’t have much time to sit down and read. Thankfully my TBR list for Booktubeathon is quite manageable.

At the moment, I am trying to finish Live, Love, Lead. Your best is yet to come by Brian Houston. I have 1 chapter left, so hopefully I can finish that before I fall asleep. Continue reading “Booktubeathon 2015: Day 1”
