“And it was done; I no longer had a face. I wasn’t Constanter; I was Silverlegs, and in that moment I felt like I could take on an entire army.”
A Roman style setting, vicious, well written battle scenes, epic sword fights. A female mc who refuses to be used and abused. Hell yes.

A Harry Potter inspired readathon
This is my fist time participating and I’m excited. Doing long running types of readathons/challenges is always a risky bet for me. I hate feeling like I’m forced to read something, I’m a total mood reader. But this looks really cool and I hate to feel like I’ve missed out. This readathon is different to any I’ve done before.

A quick readathon this weekend.
2019 is the year of the readathon. So of course I’m jumping on the bandwagon and taking part in the 8 in two readathon, brought to us by the lovely ladies from 25infive.
This weekend we have a bit on, but I’m hopeful that I can smash out 4 hours of reading each night and that will be enough. Continue reading “8 in two readathon”
