Hi there everyone!
I hope you are all ready to face the week coming ahead. I have a giveaway coming up for you tomorrow *hint hint* Anyway, I am breaking my usual blog schedule to bring you the introduction post to the Fantasy Favourites Read-a-thon! Have you signed up yet?
This post is where we learn more about YOU (and well, you can learn more about me as well). So without further ado, here goes! And don’t forget to link up at the bottom as well!
If you haven’t seen me around, I’m Olivia-Savannah, a 16 year old girl who loves books, blogging and all things nail art. When I am not saying yes to everything and doing far too much at one time, I’m usually writing, playing basketball or… doing the above things mentioned.
Why did you chose to join the read-a-thon?
I think I will change this question as to why I wanted to host one! I have always wanted to run an event, and made a goal this year to try and run one myself. I also love connecting with other bloggers and thought it would be a great way to do so. Of course, no one wants to run something alone which is why it is great to have Inge and Karolina @ Bookshelf Reflections
along with me.
What books do you intend to read?
I am going to read Harry Potter book three because it has been ages since I finished the second one (can you believe this is the first time I read the series) and I will also read Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout – my first book of hers. I hope to have time to read Scarlett by Marissa Meyer and will be continuing any books I am currently reading for review requests and school, etc.
How many pages do you think you can manage?
Tricky question! I am going to lower my standards and hope for 50 a day because school will be happening as well. Which makes for an aimed total of 350 pages. Hm… It’s probably going to end up being more than that. I love a challenge like this one.
What is your current favourite fantasy read?
I do like fantasy, I just haven’t read too much of it! I think it would have to be either A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin or The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud (it’s hilarious!)
What is your least favourite fantasy?
I would say The Fallen Star by Jessica Sorenson. Just No. No.
Which fantasy book are you dying to read?
Obsidian! You don’t know how many amazing things I have heard about this book and author. I just need to try it for myself before I go insane!
Can you suggest some (3) good reads to the fellow read-a-thon participants?
Of course, you should read Cinder. But Seraphina
and Eragon are some good fantasy related reads as well!
If you could choose any fantasy character to be chained to during the read-a-thon, who would it be?
I think I would have to go for Bartimaeus from The Amulet of Samarkand. He is just SO sassy, I would be cracking up the whole time. He might not be quiet and let me read though… hm…
Lastly: Invite a friend to join in with the fun!
I have practically invited all my friends already, so I invite YOU, the person reading this!
