I should’ve started watching Outlander in a few months or years. Now I have cliffhangers all over the place to deal with and anxiety to suppress…

#treesofreveriereadathon #Update #Suzanne Collins #The Underland Chronicles #Gregor And The Curse Of The Warmbloods #Children's Book #I don't know if the reason I'm loving this series is because I'm marathoning it #Or because is just plain good #You should read it if you like Percy Jackson tho



Trees of Reverie September Read-a-Thon | Day One
On the first day I read the firs two volumes on the Underleand Chronicles written by Suzanne Collins. If you wish to see a full review on the first book you can click here. But the briefly synopsis is that this series talks about Gregor and his adventures after he falls on an air vent while in pursue of his two-year-old sister landing in Underland, a place where humans have almost transparent skin and purple eyes, cockroaches, bats and rats are impossible huge and are able to think and talk. While trying to stay alive, Gregor discover he is an important piece on a prophecy written centuries ago that decides if Underland will finally achieve peace or perish in war.
This is a children’s series and it is very captivating, the characters are complex and flawed, the story is very action packed and overall is just a very entertaining and well written story.
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 for both of them.
Pages read: 498

The saddest thing I’ve ever seen is my 9 year cousin saying to me “are you jogging? you’re too fat” just so she can make the grown ups laugh and gain their affirmation in a sort of “did i do it right, aunt?” kinda of way and if this doesn’t show that kids are alright until grown ups come in their way to screw them up and make them judgemental, i don’t know what does.

#treesofreveriereadathon #read a thon #september read-a-thon #tbr #12 fairly sized books is a bit ambitious of myself but let's do it #That's 3495 pages #Wooow



I went to Asda today to buy food and, oh, let’s see what they have in their book section, shall we?

This is what I find

And it’s 6 pounds each which is half the price they usually cost and it is flipping hardcover! They also had Greek Gods by Rick Riordan but I’m short on money (also the british covers are not so good, sorry) and couldn’t buy it.
