Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts #9

Bookish ThoughtsBookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts is a weekly meme hosted by Christine at Bookishly Boisterous Books.

Kia Ora!

I would love to say that I have been away but I’ve been well aware I haven’t posted since Deweys & this month I started feeling guilty about it. I haven’t written any reviews, but I have been reading & that’s what it’s all about. Did you know it’s 5 weeks til Xmas? That’s like 6 weeks remaining in 2015. THAT IS SCARY!

In Bookish news,
Things we dont say out loud1. I received a copy of ‘Things we don’t say out Loud’ by Rochelle Walters. I take part in so many giveaways I don’t know how I received this one but I’m putting it on my pile for December.

2. For me, November is YA month. I signed up for Crazy for Young Adult Books Book Pool Challenge because I need to boost my numbers. I managed to pick up a few of the titles from the library & finished Beastly in a couple days. Unfortunately I couldn’t get into Juvie (sorta like a YA version of Orange Is The New Black) and it put me in a short slump.

3. I’m hosting a Book Pool in December on Goodreads for the Book Lovin’ Kiwis group. Sign ups are open & will close on 30 November. I love book pools because you can select 3 books you want to read & others select their own, but you end up with an amazing pool of books to select from. The challenge is to be the one to read the most.

In Not So Bookish news,
4. I mentioned a festival in my last Bookish post & I’m pleased to say GOSPEL ROOTS has launched, artists are being announced and it’s all on for Jan. 15-18th, 2016!

I’m gonna be sooo busy in December with Gospel Roots logistics, so I really hope I can still read 100 books before the year ends.That’s all from me this week. I’m happy to be back at this and will try get some time to write reviews instead of binge reading.
