Bout of Books 22 – Day 2

Bout of Books Day 2 – Today’s Challenge:

Year of You

Share a book that was published the year you were born. If you don’t wish to disclose your age (that’s fine; you’ll get no judgment either way here), pick a book that was significant to your childhood.

Thanks to Courtney Lynn (@ceelynnreading) for today’s challenge!

Pet Sematary by Stephen King was originally published in 1983 (this is a cover of the kindle book). I have never read this, but I did watch the movie…and I was YOUNG. I don’t find this movie very scary, but for the little boy, after he comes back. In the movie, he just has… *this laugh* …. and my mom has tortured me with it all my life!! lol Hence, I will probably never read the book.

Book Review: June

16Title: June

Author: Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

Release Date: May 31, 2016

Pages: 400

My Rating: 4.5 stars

A young woman is lamenting the death of her grandmother. A movie star leaves her his inheritance. She must figure out the connection between the two, while also dealing with all the repercussions of these 2 events. The story also flips back and forth to the grandmother’s story, as a young woman 60 years prior, and we see how those unfolding events affect the future.

My Thoughts:
I wasn’t sure I would like this, especially by looking at the cover (I am a total cover judger!). But I had heard a couple people have decent-to-good reviews, and went ahead and requested it. Even upon beginning the read, until about midway through, I didn’t think it’d be for me. Because of that, and also some busyness that comes with family visiting and the start of a new school year, it took me a while to want to read it, and get through the first half. But the second half got quite interesting, hooked me in, and I finished in just a couple days (still, with limited reading time). I really liked the back and forth, time jumping, plot lines. I didn’t see the point at first, but they came together nicely, by the end. I didn’t really care much for the specific characters…nothing really wrong with them, but they were slightly…not annoying, but…I just wasn’t connecting with them, I guess. But I liked the timeline eras, and the plot line. I liked the mystery and the way the result was revealed. I feel like I can’t really give much detail…

“I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.”

#ReadThemAllThon (ie. Pokemon Readathon) TBR

So…I don’t really know much about Pokemon. Like, at all. But I do like to play Pokemon GO, which is why this readathon peeked my interest! And it sounds fun with all the points, so I might as well try it out.


So, this readathon is hosted by Read at Midnight, and starts Monday, August 14th, and runs for 3 weeks…and since Bout of Books 17 *also* is in the middle of it (and we do not have a challenge list for that yet)…this TBR is tentative, for right now. I am attempting to double up all my requirements, making books do double (and possibly triple?!) duty. I have 2 books I have to read this month, and I got them both to work for this readathon. If I can, I will try and get them to work for BoB as well, if I don’t read them before that…which I am going to try to do.

ANYWAYS. Let’s get to the TBR.

Also, the pokemon I am picking is:

a slowpoke

which evolves into a slowbro.

For easier future reference, here is also the point calculation rules:
