Day-A-Thon [November 2018]

Hello, bookworms!
As usual, Lili and I are hosting Day-A-Thon (the new name for our 24-Hour readathon) starting at 8 pm Friday, the 30th!

Unfortunately, I’m coming down with a bad cold and probably won’t be able to read along with you guys physically.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean I’m not participating!

During the readathon, I’ll keep track of your reading progress on Twitter, I might even do sprints to boost your motivation!! Even if I cannot actually read, there are ways that I can participate!

If you feel up for the game, feel free to join us! We are looking forward to your participation!

Hi Guys,


Our 24-Hour Readathon got a name now. Day-A -Thon. I know, i know, it’s not the most original name but I can’t think of any. And I don’t have time because I’m remodelling my blog and I want this readathon to have its own menu. So it needs a name. haha.

Anyway, Noriko @Diary of a Book Fiendand I started this readathon last February and decided to do this every last weekend of the month. This is just for fun and helps us tackle our TBRs and other reading challenges we joined but anyone can join us.


We start at 8 p.m. in our countries. Nori and I are just less than an hour apart. If you want to join us, you can start at 8 p.m. wherever you are or you can start with us. If you want to do the latter, please send me a…

Review: Every Fifteen Minutes by Lisa Scottoline

From the New York Times bestselling author of Keep Quiet, a new novel of suspense and emotional justice.

Dr. Eric Parrish is the Chief of the Psychiatric Unit at Havemeyer General Hospital outside of Philadelphia. Recently separated from his wife Alice, he is doing his best as a single Dad to his seven-year-old daughter Hannah. His work seems to be going better than his home life, however. His unit at the hospital has just been named number two in the country and Eric has a devoted staff of doctors and nurses who are as caring as Eric is.

But when he takes on a new patient, Eric’s entire world begins to crumble. Seventeen-year-old Max has a terminally ill grandmother and is having trouble handling it. That, plus his OCD and violent thoughts about a girl he likes makes Max a high risk patient. Max can’t turn off the mental rituals he needs to perform every fifteen minutes that keep him calm. With the pressure mounting, Max just might reach the breaking point. When the girl is found murdered, Max is nowhere to be found. Worried about Max, Eric goes looking for him and puts himself in danger of being seen as a “person of interest” himself.
Next, one of his own staff turns on him in a trumped up charge of sexual harassment. Is this chaos all random? Or is someone systematically trying to destroy Eric’s life? New York Times best selling author Lisa Scottoline’s visceral thriller, Every Fifteen Minutes, brings you into the grip of a true sociopath and shows you how, in the quest to survive such ruthlessness, every minute counts.

#Reading Journal: November 26th, 2018

Hello, bookworms! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. How’s your reading coming along? 
As for me, it was a cozy, relaxing weekend. Other than the fact that I went back to the gym after a 2 year break (oh, my) and put in some work out on Saturday morning, I spent the entire weekend just chilling in my house, reading and watching YouTube videos. I obviously wasted the prime reading time!

Review: Jane Doe by Victoria Helen Stone

A double life with a single purpose: revenge.

Jane’s days at a Midwest insurance company are perfectly ordinary. She blends in well, unremarkably pretty in her floral-print dresses and extra efficient at her low-level job. She’s just the kind of woman middle manager Steven Hepsworth likes—meek, insecure, and willing to defer to a man. No one has any idea who Jane really is. Least of all Steven.

But plain Jane is hiding something. And Steven’s bringing out the worst in her.

Nothing can distract Jane from going straight for his heart: allowing herself to be seduced into Steven’s bed, to insinuate herself into his career and his family, and to expose all his dirty secrets. It’s time for Jane to dig out everything that matters to Steven. So she can take it all away.

Just as he did to her. (Goodreads)
