Yesterday was the Readathon By Zoe hosted by Zoe Herdt! I participated in it and, like last time, tried to read for 24 hours! Well, I allowed time for sleeping, but the majority of the day was spent reading. The readathon went from midnight to midnight in your own timezone on Saturday 14 October.
Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable.
My September wrap-up and October TBR.
The topic for this week's Top 5 Wednesday is "books I've read because of blogging". I can think of SO many books that I've read because of blogging! It was really easy to compile a list. It's my go-to source of finding a good book to read.
I have been tagged to do the How I Choose My Books Tag by Darque Dreamer Reads and Bookchanted. Thank you both for tagging me! They have awesome blogs.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this anthology. I decided to read one a day and this made the experience really fun, so I would definitely recommend reading it that way. This book is a collection of short stories by various young adult authors. There is commentary at the end of each story by a BookTuber that gave the author a prompt. The prompts all have something to do with villains.
The Top 5 Wednesday topic for today is Favourite Fancasts. I thought it was really difficult to think about, but at the same time was very fun. There are a few books that I have read recently that are turning into movies and have already been casted, so it was a bit of a challenge.
I'm so excited to be getting back into Top 5 Wednesday! I missed the last few weeks. The topic for today is "books to read without the synopsis". I love this topic, because there are so many books that are best to read without looking at the blurb on the back. And it is always great to be pleasantly surprised about a book you knew nothing about.
Rachel @ Pace, Libre, Amore tagged me recently to do The Location Book Tag. Thank you for tagging me, Rachel! The questions are like scenarios, which I think is really creative. This wonderful tag was created by Puppa Pages. For most of these questions I'm going to choose books that I haven't read yet because … Continue reading The Location Book Tag
Writing book reviews is something that takes effort, but it can also be very rewarding! I was thinking about why I wrote a book review every week and whether I should keep going or limit it, so I devised a list of pros and cons to way up on just how helpful it can be.
