Actually you know what it’s probably just me reading this, but whatever…
I’m fairly sure the idea of having a blog must only be so one can quote Barney from HIMYM of “This is totally going in my blog” when your best friend finally suits up.
But as I don’t think any of my friends have even a collective suit–(even if they all banded together), I am (sadly) probably saved the liberty of quoting this line.
Why write keep blog? Well like so many I need to put my brain somewhere, and maybe it cease the constant chatting to myself as I walk down the street…which I think I do far to often for comfort.
At the beginning of this year I started a YouTube channel where I rant about one of my main wallet draining hobbies: books. I thought this would be a rather good platform for pouring my mind. But what I have come to realize of late is that unless you are a vlogger, having vague order in a video is very important. Hence the unstructured waves of my subconscious need to be tamed just a little when making one. Not having a good camera or anywhere very decent to film has been a big issue too. Causing me to wonder if I am adding at all to that lovely, ever hungry void that is the YouTube platform.
SO! Maybe writing a blog in which to empty my thoughts will help me be better focused when on camera…
…It looked like a plan in my head to begin with, okay!
ANYWAY. It is technically for two reasons that I am here today. Above being the first, and the second being still book related.
Because the beautiful art of book reviewing has many media platforms it inhabits, reading challenges tend to easily be found outside of your Austin book-clubs and YouTube: blogs have picked up the game too.
So without further ado, I am also here to announce to no one in particular, that I am taking part in #TheReadingQuest, created by the lovely Aentee from Read At Midnight. I suggest looking at the full perks and rules of the challenge on her original Blog post.
I’m playing at the Mage, and although I am trying not to box myself in (cause I have been doing boxed in TBR for the first half of this year and it hasn’t worked well) I do plan to (probably) read:
- The Waking Land by Callie Bates
- NeverNight by Jay Kristoff
- The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
- City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
- and The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen.
I am looking forward to this challenge!
Thank you so much to Aentee for coming up with this quest and a huge thanks to CW for her amazing art work for this event her page can be found here.
That’s probably about it for now, hopefully there aren’t too many typos in this– but who knows, I could start a Shakespearean-English aesthetic of guessing at spelling and grammar.
Keep standing on tables and preforming at the world ❤
