#TBRTakedown 4.0 June 20th (12:00 am) - June 26th (11:59 pm)
I took part in the TBRTakedown 4.0 Challenge. It is hosted by @leaninglights. Now this time, around with TBRTakedown it was a lot more difficult to read. When this readathon started I just one, finished up another readathon, and two I had just gotten back from my vacation.
- A book that's been on your TBR Shelf Over a Year!
- An unread sequel sitting on your TBR shelf.
- The first book in a series on your TBR shelf.
- An "out of your comfort zone" book.
- A book from your most recent book haul.
A book that's been on your TBR Shelf Over a Year:
The BFG by Roald Dahl
This book was super cute! Sophie and the BFG's relationship was just too adorable but the book did have darker undertones that I wasn't expecting. I mean I know that the book was about one friendly giant and a whole slew of evil ones but I didn't expect it to be darker than the giants eating people. Sophie would ask questions to the BFG and then he would say something that was dark and depressing. The good thing was that it ended happily and I'm really excited to see how the movie compares to the book.
An unread sequel sitting on your TBR shelf:
Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon
The first book in a series on your TBR shelf & A book from your most recent book haul:A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
Okay, when I read Throne of Glass also by Sarah J Maas I was a bit disappointed that I didn't love it but this book is the opposite. I love this book so far. I may be biased because of the fact that it's a Beauty and the Beast retelling. Beauty and the Beast is one (if not my absolute) favorite Disney movie. This book is all the epicness that I expected from Throne of Glass. I do have some issues with it, some moments I cringed when I knew I shouldn't have but I really have been enjoying it. I would have finished this book the last day of the readathon but Game Of Thrones got in the way and then I was distracted. I have around 160 pages left.
