Advent Readathon Challenge - Day 3

Image
Hey everyone! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and this isn't when I usually post, what am I doing?


So I decided (last minute) to join not one, but four readathons this month! We're going to ignore my previous failure in #mythothon and just be convinced that this is a completely logical and sound idea. One of these readathons is known as Advent Readathon, which runs from December 1st to the 24th. They have daily challenges that rotate between Instagram, YouTube, and blogs. I'm hoping to participate in all of them. Today is the first blog challenge, which is to recommend a book as if it's a holiday book.

November Wrap Up!

Image
Hi everyone! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and this is everything that happened to me this November!
B O O K I S H  M O N T H  I've read 3 books this month! But Nox, you might be asking, didn't you say you have 16 books on your TBR? Yes, yes I did. I still somehow only managed 3 of them. They were really good books though, so I'm okay with it. This month's books were:A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. SchwabRenegades by Marissa MeyerArchenemies by Marissa MeyerI got to meet Marissa Meyer! It was amazing, she's one of my favorite authors and I got the chance to ask her a question. She signed my copy of Archenemies and now I have a picture with her! After all of the drama that happened with one of my (ex) best friends last month, my other best friend dragged her boyfriend to Barnes and Noble at 9 at night so she could buy me some books to cheer me up. I love you Christi! I mentioned them in my November Book Haul post!I also got a couple of other books that …

November Book Haul!

Hi everyone! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and I've been super fortunate to get some books this month that I want to share with all of you!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab After reading A Darker Shade of Magic this year, I've been dying to finish the trilogy! My parents are buying me a book a month (my birthday present until next July), and I picked this book for November so I can hopefully finish the trilogy before the end of the year! Then I can get into The Steel Prince. I've already finished A Gathering of Shadows, and you can find my book ramble for it here!
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab I haven't started yet, but I can't wait to dig into A Conjuring of Light! This is technically my December pick, but since it was there when I went to the bookstore with my parents, they said I could get it now and it'll just …

Book Ramble - A Gathering of Shadows

Image
Hi everyone! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and today I'm rambling about A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab, a definite GET ME ALL THE MERCH!



"Call me crazy, but I think we do the best living when the stakes are high."

TRIGGER WARNING: None

A Gathering of Shadows fulfills my requirement for Hera in #mythothon, the readathon I'm participating in this month! I've been dying to read this since I finished A Darker Shade of Magic months ago!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

S P O I L E R - F R E E  T A L K (except for A Darker Shade of Magic)
So A Gathering of Shadows takes place four months after the ending of the first book. While the first one mainly switched between Lila and Kell's points of view, this one switches between 5 different ones: Kell, Lila, Rhy, and two that I won't share because spoilers. This wasn't really distracting, but I have to ad…

Book Ramble - Renegades

Hi everyone! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and Archenemies by Marissa Meyer came out this week, I'm getting my copy Sunday, so of course I had to ramble about Renegades! Most definitely a GET ME ALL THE MERCH!



"Heroism wasn't about what you could do, it was about what you did. It was about who you saved when they needed saving." 
TRIGGER WARNING: Death
Renegades fulfills my requirement for Zeus in #mythothon, the readathon that I'm participating in this month! It definitely helps that this is written by one of my favorite authors, and I'm glad to say that she did not disappoint (except for the ending...I'll get into that).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
S P O I L E R - F R E E  T A L K 
First things first: the characters in this story are incredibly well developed. My only issue with multi-POV stories because I feel like there isn't enough time to …

October Wrap Up!

Hi everyone! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and October has been pretty good to me!

B O O K I S H  M O N T H  I've read four books this month! Considering I didn't read any last month (mental health reasons) and that none of these were for school, I'd say that's pretty good! This month I finished:Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. ChoiGlass Sword by Victoria AveyardFuryborn by Claire LegrandPercy Jackson's Greek Gods by Rick RiordanI decided that I'm going to join my first readathon! It's #mythothon, and my TBR is posted here! It's incredibly ambitious and I can't wait to start!I got my tickets to go to a meet and greet with Marissa Meyer next month! I am extremely excited to get Archenemies signed by one of my favorite authors and get to meet her! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#mythothon TBR

Hey everyone! Welcome to Nox Reads, I'm "Nox", and I've decided that next month I want to participate in #mythothon created by the amazing Foxes and Fairytales!


Music I Listened to While Writing: QUESTION (the theme for the second season of Assassination Classroom)
So as much as I want to read 25 prompts, that's 25 books. I've barely read that much this year. And considering I have school and family obligations, I don't know if that would be entirely possible. So, while this won't be a TBR for all 25 prompts, I do want to cover the main twelve Olympians, Hestia, and Hades. 14 books in all. I may make another post with which books I'll read if I get past 14, but these are my main priorities.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Zeus. King of the Gods. King of the Skies. - Read a book with at least 400 pages.

So I don't have this book yet, but I'm probably goi…
