The book lover's Chronicles

I love reading... I might not be the fastest reader and I can take a long time to read a book but I love being transported in a book and trying to understand, grow to love and befriend the characters in the different stories that I discover. I love that you can move from world to world in a second and unravel new adventures. The bottom line is I'm a passionate reader and I love books!

The dog days of summer read-a-thon!

 

I was watching a video filmed by Andi who's an awesome blogger and booktuber and she was announcing her participation in The dog days of summer read-a-thon that's being hosted by the Estella society (http://www.estellasociety.com/). It's a 48h read-a-thon that starts on Saturday the 17th and ends on Sunday the 18th. It also has a theme and it's basically reading books that make you feel nostalgic and remind you of a a certain point in your life. It can be a re-read or other books by an author that you loved when you were younger. Look at you bookshelf and be creative!
I chose two books:
- The Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm
- The Dictionary of Mythology 

 

I've never read the Grimm fairy tales before so that was an opportuinity for me and then I've been obsessed with Greek mythology from when I was 11 years old.

 

Hope you join in on this read-a-thon!
