POV: In a sea of internet people who read 100s of books per year, you have finally stumbled upon me, who recently forced myself to read 50 books over the past two years.
Don’t get me wrong, 50 books in one year is still a lot! I’m giving myself a pat on the back as we speak. But as I was asked to input a new Goodreads challenge for 2021, I decided to lower my standards by a lot, and I went for it.
I only signed up to read 25 books this year.
Yesterday was my blog’s 2nd Blogiversary! I… literally can’t believe it. This is a very hard thing to process. Especially since I haven’t been blogging nearly as much as I did on my first year of blogging.
And in honor of my blogiversary, I’m going to revisit one of my first (and best) discussions. In March of 2019, I made a discussion post titled “What do you think about spoilers?” and to this day, it’s still one of my favorites. However! There are still so many things to discuss when it comes to spoilers. So in true Xandra fashion, I’m going to talk about everything I can when it comes to spoilers.
I started blogging almost two years ago, and it has definitely changed a lot about the way I live my life.
I’ve always been a reader, but honestly? I didn’t know there were people on this earth who read 100+ a year until I joined this corner of the internet. I thought that was impossible! I would have laughed in your face if you told me that was a thing! But now I am simply in awe. 😌 There are so many things about this community that surprised me when I started, but that was probably one of the first.
It feels like it’s been absolutely forever since I’ve done a proper book tag, and I think this is the most perfect tag I’ve seen in a while! 💕
Normally, I don’t like doing tags, because it just reminds me that I’m the most basic book blogger ever and I actually have not read as many books as literally everyone else, but I’m making an exception for this one because it’s Percy Jackson! My mind is currently filled with my love for PJO, and for May, who created this tag. 😊
I remember the exact moment I finished Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
I remember precisely where I was, how I felt, and what kinds of emotions I was going through. Reading that series over the course of a month was one of the highlights of my time as a young reader, and I don’t think I’ll ever forget how special those moments of reading were to me.
With all the news about Percy Jackson being adapted by Disney+, this got me thinking… how much can a favorite series impact us, and why?
