I find it funny how my TBR for this read-a-thon is a little bit useless because what I’ve read are not the list I posted, though I started them, I still wasn’t able to finish them until now. But I’m glad because the two books I’ve read can still use the prompts for #TropeAthon that I joined. The prompts can be seen below.
I’ve already posted my TBR, and for the Cover Love, I’ve chosen Rose Petal Graves by Olivia Wildenstein. Now, for the rest of the prompts, let’s see which will fit on the two books I’ve read during the read-a-thon.
Ignite the Stars by Maura Milan
Here are the prompts that I can use for this book:
- Enemies to Lovers
- Other Worlds
- Slow Burn
- Recommended to You – Isabelle from BookwyrmBites said I can consider this book as her recommendation, so I did. Thanks for answering my question when I sent you a DM on Discord.
Also, you can read my full review here.
Coral by Sara Ella
Here is the prompt that I can use for this book:
- Blue on the Cover
This is like a Little Mermaid retelling, but the story focuses more on discussing subjects like depression, self-harm, suicide, anxiety, and death. I’m glad that I’ve read the author’s note because it is helpful for me to get ready what the story will tell me.
I enjoyed the different POV of the characters. It gives me a depth understanding of them. I also can relate to them because I somehow went under the same situations as them. I’ve lost my favorite grandfather, and in the same year, my life went downhill, that leads me to feel like I’m trapped in an unhappy and dark room. And, this story shows us how one person can act and think when they have these mental illnesses which other people need to understand.
The author has written a story about a complicated subject, but I liked it. It can be complicated and challenging to read for others, especially if they don’t understand the story being told. But I hope they will appreciate this one.
And those are the two books I’ve read during the #TropeAthon, and also the prompts I used on them and the reviews I have for those books. For the TBR I posted, I DNF Carry On by Rainbow Rowell because I didn’t like the narration in it. And I’m still around 20% in Slammed by Colleen Hoover. If only I finished these two, then I might have already covered all the prompts because Carry On is for The Chosen One, while Slammed is for Forbidden Romance.
Anyway, I’m still happy that I get to join this because I don’t know if I can still join one after our semester started, which will be on August 12. I’m an Internal Auditing student (which will be an Accountancy student after four more semesters and if I’ll pass the qualifying exam for it *cross fingers*), so the study time required for us is unimaginable. Well, especially for me, because I’m also an active student leader in college and a youth leader for my nation. That’s why I took a hiatus before because I need to figure out first how to balance being a student/youth leader with my study time and reading time (+ blogging time lol!)
And I’m now concluding that this is the end of my update for #TropeAthon. Thank you for reading!
