I am shamed. During the seven day Booktubeathon I read only 3 books:
Challenges applied: finish a book in a day, hyped in Sherlockian lore, people in the distance.
I kinda regret reading this so fast because there is so much logical detail, but I am thankful it propelled me to read it fast because the second story..ugh.

A Spell For Chameleon 8/12 stars
Challenges: person on the cover, Bink is different from me.
So sexist, but the story was great and the magic detailed. Review coming!
Challenges: Finish a book in one day, people on the cover, characters are different from me.
Does manga count?
This was a cute romance. The transvestite twist and it’s immersion in their drama club gives it an interesting difference from most r/c manga. The artwork was beautiful without being overly detailed, an uncommon asset in manga.
My only problem is how one dimensional the rivals are. They are there only to serve the plot and have no human complexities.
So that was the week of Booktubeathon, but in July overall I read 8 books. Ok, 2 others are manga. Need opinions! Does manga count? Highlights include Game Of Thrones and Strange The Dreamer.

Awkward Blogging Moments, Ilsa@ A Whisper Of Ink: People talk about their blogs? Blogs are for internet. People are for…Maybe a few have uses, but I’m not sure what the general human populace is for. She has real points that bloggers experience.
Holly Visits Willa Cather’s Grave Call me creepy but I love graves. I love Hitlers’ scattered ashes. I love…stopping now. Seriously, visiting such a historic site would be an amazing experience, as long as you gave me time to read her books.
And seriously,I love graves.
