My Final #ReadingMyLibrary Challenge Post: The Whispering Skull

Posted April 28, 2015 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Reading Challenges / 1 Comment

April is just about over, which means it’s time for my final post in the #ReadingMyLibrary blogging challenge. For details about the challenge, you can check out my challenge sign up post.

In my previous #ReadingMyLibrary post, I reviewed the first book in the Lockwood & Co. series, The Screaming Staircase. Today I’ll be reviewing The Whispering Skull, the second Lockwood book.

“Well,” Lockwood said, “if you judge success by the number of enemies you make, that was a highly successful evening.”

#ReadingMyLibrary Update: The Screaming Staircase

Posted April 14, 2015 by Alison's Wonderland Recipes in Reading Challenges / 1 Comment

Last week I announced that I’d be taking part in the #ReadingMyLibrary challenge for the month of April, because I love libraries…and any excuse to read more! 🙂

For those who didn’t see the announcement, the rule of the challenge is that you need to read at least one library book and discuss it in either a blog post, #ReadingMyLibrary main page comment, or social media post. Since I found out about the challenge just after my weekly library visit, I’ll be discussing the books I picked up that day: the first two installments in the Lockwood & Co. series by Jonathan Stroud.

Seeing as I don’t have an infinite book budget, I’m a huge proponent of libraries. So it’s not that surprising that I was downright gleeful when I discovered that Stephani from Caught Read Handed and Amy from Read What I Like were hosting a library-oriented reading challenge for the month of April. It’s called the #ReadingMyLibrary Challenge, and all you have to do is read a library book and blog/comment about it! Considering I picked up two new library books just before hearing about the challenge, I was more than prepared. 🙂

That’s right. Those are lightsaber candlesticks and a framed hobbit map…because I’m cool like that. 😉

Bea’s Book Nook recently published a post in which Bea lists 20 authors with the most books on her bookshelf. It got me curious about which authors had the biggest real estate claim on my bookcase, so I decided to check it out! My findings surprised me a bit…
