midnight madness newsletter


This meme was inspired by Kimba’s The Sunday Post @ the Caffeinated Book Reviewer

This is a weekly newsletter and will be posted usually on Sundays.


I felt like I did nothing this week until today. Why? Well, let’s see. I fell asleep while I was reading two nights this week, making my go way behind schedule in my posts. And then today it was like I suddenly found the motivation to DO SOMETHING. So anywho, I completed three of my school projest, including a powerpoint presentation, short story and brochure about the black plague. They were all rather bland apart from the short story. The teacher made us write about 600 words and I ended up with 3, 138 words. NO. I refuse to cut down. I mean, seriously, 600 words is like nothing. Even with 3000 words, I’m feeling a little irritated and want to add another paragraph or so. *le sigh*Nonetheless, this week, I’ve hit a milestone. I have read 100 books so far this year!

I’m contemplating whether I should host a giveaway… hmmm… maybe when I hit 150 books, eh?
And I’ll also take this opportunity to say to all BEA attenders, HAVE FUN!!!! I will not be attending but I do hope everyone how is, will enjoy. Instead, I’ll be participating in Armchair BEA.
Book of the Week:

The Book of the Week can be anything from; my most anticipated new release, my favourite book I’ve read etc…

I just realised I have never chosen my second favourite series in the world yet so here it is. The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness. This series is from the MG genre and broke my heart into shattered pieces. If you haven’t read this, I highly recommend it. (Excuse me as I go and fangirl)

  4. Renu says:

    Can’t wait to see what you think of S & B and Spies and Prejudice!

  5. Stephanie B says:

    What’s Armchair BEA? Oh my goodness! Spies and Prejudice was/is amazing! I just read that this past week. I haven’t read Shadow and Bone yet but I have it and I’m planning on reading it this week.

  6. Eileen says:

    The Madman’s Daughter is AMAZING and Going Vintage looks so cute! I hope you love them all, and I’m so jealous you’re at 100 books! I’m reading so slowly these days and I’ve been seriously freaking out lol where’s all the time going? D:

    Also, I’m going to BEA and I’m so happy! I hope you have tons of fun at Armchair BEA! I did it last year and it was such a blast because I met so many new bloggers and it was so surreal 🙂

    Fantastic post, Melanie! Have a great week 🙂

  7. Melanie says:

    Now I’m even more excited ^,^ I’m relieved to hear that you thought Madman was good 🙂

  8. I wish you were going to BEA. Armchair BEA is a lot of fun though. 100 books is a great achievement. You are way ahead of me already! I’m trying though. Yay for the Rarity GIF. I thought about requesting A Summer of Sundays but I passed for now so you will have to let me know how it is. Have a great week, Melanie!
