Write-On-Review-a-ThonThe Write On Review-a-Thon is a challenge hosted by Book Bumblings. From Friday through Sunday, we all band together and write as many reviews as possible. It’s a weekend for you to either catch up on reviews or get ahead on upcoming ones. It doesn’t matter if you write one review or 10 – if you write a review, you’re in 🙂

Join this month’s challenge here.

By the end of this weekend I aim to have reviewed the following:

Over on Bride of the Screen God:

  • The Guest
  • The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
  • Star Wars: The Revenge of the Sith
  • Senna

Here on Bride of the Book God

  • The Shining by Stephen King

I also intend to have written a post for this week’s Sunday Salon.

Screen Shot 2014-06-26 at 4.47.12 PMWhat did I say I was going to do?

As I said in my sign up post, I am aiming to be a Brave Reader, which means reading 6-10 books during the course of the year. My first quarterly update can be found here, the second one is here.

How am I doing?

I hit a real reading slump in early August and I’m not out of the woods yet. That means I only managed to read one horror novel, but it was a classic being Stephen King’s The Shining (which I haven’t written the review for yet but will soon).

I started but just couldn’t get on with I Am Legend this time around; like The Shining it was a re-read.

But it’s nearly October and I’m on holiday for 3 weeks and expecting/hoping to get lots more reading done, which means more scary books!

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence
