Summer Biannual Bibliothon 2017 Wrap-Up

This past week, I took part in the Summer Biannual Bibliothon and it was my first time taking part in a readathon ever. I thought it was quite fun and I’m happy to say that I managed to complete my TBR and all the reading challenges that I set out to do. I wanted to take part in the blog challenges too but unfortunately, I gave up after Day 2 cause I was too lazy. Oh well, I’m not gonna beat myself up about it. Today, I bring you my wrap-up of all the books I read during the Summer Bibib!

Adaptation Review: Netflix’s Thirteen Reasons Why

Aha so now we enter controversial territory. I’m doing this review as part of the blog challenge for the Summer Bibib, which is to write a book review. Technically, I’m doing an adaptation review but I’ve been meaning to do this review anyway so I thought I’d just force it into this challenge. I’ll also review a bit of the book so maybe it counts? Anyway.

Review: The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices

This summer, I took on the rather daunting goal of reading the Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, at least the first two series. I never really intended or wanted to read them but they just get so much hype on Booktube that I just felt like I should read them so that I could understand what people were talking about. It was a rollercoaster of a journey to say the least. I read them in publication order so the two series kinda intertwined for me and just felt like a giant 9-book series. Still, I shall review them separately because I had very different feelings for each of the series.

Adaptation Review: The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train is about an alcoholic woman who witnesses something out of the window of a train and finds herself entangled in a mysterious web of lies and deceit, not exactly unwillingly. It’s based on a supposed best-selling novel but if you saw my post about my¬†Most Disappointing Books of 2016, you’ll know that I didn’t really think much of the book. I wasn’t really planning on watching this movie after I missed it in the theaters but then I saw Luke Evans in Beauty and the Beast and I just had to see more of his work. So that was basically my sole reason for watching this movie haha.
