30 Day Reading Challenge – Days 1-3

First let's clear the rules I'm setting for myself for this challenge.

- reading 1 page/ day counts
- audiobooks don't count
- school reading doesn't count either
- the day ends when I go to sleep (sometimes it's after 12 pm)

I had trouble trying to figure out what to read. There are so many unread books in my shelves it shouldn't be that hard but it was. In the end I settled on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay (boy what a mouthful) because I felt like reading something familiar. I debated on starting the Potters yet again but then thought that it might be too easy and I wouldn't have to think what to read next if I marathoned the whole series. So I chose something familiar yet new. Besides I really need to read that book let's be honest.

I might be back

I know it's been ages since I last posted and I feel terrible about that. Over the last year I've been debating on closing the whole blog but every time I thought about it it just felt too drastic. I just couldn't bring myself to do it and now I'm glad that I didn't delete the whole thing because I might be back.

I've been suffering from a major reading slump. I mean major in a way that it has lasted way over a year. I have read a couple of books and written some reviews as well but then ended up not posting them. I have listened to a lot of audiobooks, though. I just feel like it's not proper reading. The reading slump I've been battling with is that I just don't feel like reading at all and if I pick up a book I just can't motivate myself to read...

Synopsis

 

 

 

It began as one of those days when I asked myself, what else could go wrong?
And then I died.


Eleanor, a harried, middle-aged White female elementary schoolteacher (and former police officer), begins her day by dying in the year 1999.

Somehow, while her essence is en route to wherever one’s essence goes upon death, she inadvertently ends up occupying the body of a 16-year-old Black male in 1858 Philadelphia.

Not only does she have to deal with the obvious gender, race, and time period changes, but she also has to figure out whether, when lives are at stake,...
