Fantasy Favourites Read-a-thon: Kick Off & Book Photography!

Fantasy Favourites Read-a-thon: Kick Off & Book Photography!

Hi there!

Woohoo! All systems go, and begin reading read-a-thoners! I Without further ado, let’s see the challenge for today. But first here’s my reading update, which I will keep changing as I read.

Reading Update: Obsidian (Lux #1) – 68 pages

First up we have some book photography! I had the most fun this morning running around and taking pictures. Days and challenges like this make me want to start an instagram, honestly.

Which books are on your TBR?
I really want to try and read the third Harry Potter book, the second in the Lunar Chronicles and the first of the Lux series. One of each featured series!
Where are you going to be reading this week?
I’m not lying when I say that the majority of my reading will probably happen when I should be sleeping because the daytime is for schoolwork. So, my bed is guaranteed as a reading space. (Don’t you love the Doctor Who pillows?)

Where is your blogging area/space/desk?

It’s as organized as it is gonna get xD


What is your current favourite fantasy book?
Current for me usually means latest that I have enjoyed. And I would have to say that would be A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin and also The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud.

What is your least favourite fantasy book?

Blergh, The Fallen Star by Jessica Sorenson.

Can you find on your shelf a book that includes aliens?

This is practically the only alien book I have read so far and this is technically from my sister’s shelf. But I loved The Host by Stephanie Meyer!

Can you find on your shelf a book that includes mythology?

Percy Jackson for life, of course πŸ˜€

Can you find on your shelf a book that includes magic?

Again, thank you sister. Although Eragon by Christopher Paolini has a lot of dragons in it, there is magic too. I should really get round to reading Inheritance at some point…

Can you find on your shelf that is steampunk?

ο»ΏI decided that I wasn’t allowed to use any of the Lunar Chronicles to answer this question, hence Ticker by Lisa Mantchev won out. I have yet to read this one though!
I’m doing extra!
Because you know, you can never get too much when it comes to blogging.
1. Now that Bartimaeus is chained to you, what do you want to force them to do with you? (Assuming you have their consent.)

We will definitely be sneaking into concerts and bookish shops in the middle of the night. He would definitely know how to do it correctly, as well.

2. What books is Bartimaeus reading?

Probably 12 Years A Slave. A serious read, but then he would be trying to figure out a way to his own freedom and trying to find some pointers for himself. If not, it would be a superhero comic.

 3. Roleplay a scene where you and Bartimaeus are fighting over a scene/character in the book you are currently reading.

Olivia: Kestrel! She’s torn between two worlds.
Bartimaeus: Couldn’t she just choose one already? Jeez, I have had enough of her complaining.
Olivia: It’s not as simple as that…
Bartimaeus: Sure sounds simple to me.
Olivia: Psssh, that’s because you would kill the person controlling you and then move on. Unless you were stuck with them for too long.
Bartimaeus: Of course I would. Everyone should fear me. And talking about killing those controlling you…

 4 You’ve already spent 12 hours chained to Bartimaeus. How do you feel about them now? Anything irritating you yet?

I’ll probably never get enough of the sarcastic comments, but it might bother me that he has something to say about every little thing I do. And the fact that he is usually right.

5. How do you spend your day with Bartimaeus during the read-a-thon?

Reading! Of course xD But also meeting my friends during school. I would love to hear his opinions of everyone.

6. What would your relationship status with Bartimaeus be if you got to keep them after the read-a-thon?

Friends, definitely.

7. Bartimaeus is at your mercy. What have you always wanted to ask them? What do they answer?

Can he please get me a new suitcase with all my TBR wishlist books? Thank you!

8. If given the chance to, would you like to go back to Bartimaeus’s world after the read-a-thon?
YES please! It’s like London with magic. What is there NOT to love?


Olivia’s Question: What do you like to take pictures of?
