And so it begins…
Well, this was not a good start to the week. Woke up sick, and then had a rough time getting into my first book. I’ve been slowly drifting away from YA Dystopia because I felt like I was reading the same book over and over. An Ember in the Ashes is the only series I’ve been invested in, and mainly on the strength of its characters.
Many of the people I know and run across have raved about Red Rising, but due to the reasons above I’ve been pushing the book off for a while now. I was very excited to finally dive right in but… Yeah… I had to DNF Red Rising.
Okay, okay… I’ll go into details with my end of week recap, but I was just bored… oh no…. NOT THE NOODLES!
Let’s move on to the challenge before the pitchforks and torches come out…
Day 1 Challenge: “Introduce Yourself #insixwords”
“The challenge is simple: introduce yourself on Twitter, Instagram, or on this post using six words, no more, no less.”
Today’s challenge is actually the same as the first one from the last BOB. For BOB 19 I went with “sweet and sassy, classics reading Momma”. I like that one so much (and still applies!) I had a hard time coming up with a new one. I’m taking an unique route and this year…
