Announcing the Persephone Readathon #3!

Since we’re almost halfway through the reading year, what could be better than a celebratory readathon?!  I’m happy to announce that the Persephone Readathon is back for a third round.

Whether this will be your first Persephone book* or your one hundredth, I hope you’ll join me for ten days of reading, reviewing, chatting, and celebrating all things Persephone.

The Persephone Readathon #3 will run from Friday, May 31st through Sunday, June 9th, 2019.

As before, this will be a laid back readathon; read as much or as little as you’d like. The goal is simply to enjoy reading and discussing all things Persephone Books.**

More info can be found on my Persephone Readathons Page

Classics Club Spin #20

Cheers to Classics Club Spin #20!

On Monday, April 22nd, a number from 1-20 will be chosen and I will then have until May 31st to read the book from my list that corresponds with that number.

Even though I never so much as opened my pick for the CC Spin #19 (a re-read of Evelina by Frances Burney), I’m excited to jump back in for this round. I’ve been craving a great classic lately, so I can’t wait to see which one the spin gods have in store for me.

Here’s my list:

Top Ten Tuesday: Books to Read Outside

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme created by The Broke and the Bookish blog, and now hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl.

In a crazy coincidence, I actually featured this week’s topic in one of my TTT posts almost exactly a year ago. (You can see my Rainy Day Read picks here).

So today, instead of featuring books to curl up with indoors when the weather’s bad, I’m listing Books to Read Outside on a sunny day.

My 2019 TBR Pile Challenge List

The 2019 TBR Pile Challenge is hosted by Adam at Roof Beam Reader, with the goal of reading the books that have been languishing on our shelves. The challenge is to read and review 12 unread books that have been on your shelf for more than a year, during the 12 months of 2019.

My 2018 challenge was a huge failure, but it’s a new year full of new possibilities.

Here’s my list of 12 Books and two alternates:

11 Books in Honor of the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day

One hundred years ago today, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the First World War officially came to an end.

It’s an incredibly sobering and momentous anniversary.

While I plan to spend some time diving back into Testament of Youth this afternoon, there are many books about WWI still on my TBR list. I thought I’d share 11 of these titles  to commemorate 100 years since the end of the Great War.
