2015 was an extremely successful year, for both of us, and it marked the one year anniversary for Brewing Up Books. We decided to compile a brief post to serve as our year in review, in celebration of many more to come!
Unfortunately, I didn’t meet all of my goals for Day 2 simply due to time constraints. I’m trying not to beat myself up over it though, because the motto of the week is “flailing, not failing.” Even though Day 2 came to a bit of a disappointing end, I’m determined to try that much harder for the remainder of the week!
Day 3, on the other hand, was much more successful – I managed to meet all of my goals, and I finished my final summer reading book for school!
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team
So technically its the first date of March but I’m still catching up on school school and dealing with some issues but hopefully I will be more on track come this month.
Literary Challenge Review: Beowulf
Goodreads Summary: The national bestseller and winner of the Whitbread Award. Composed toward the end of the first millennium, Beowulf is the classic Northern epic of a hero’s triumphs as a young warrior and his fated death as a defender of his people. The poem is about encountering the monstrous, defeating it, and then having to live on, physically and psychically exposed in the exhausted aftermath. It is not hard to draw parallels in this story to the historical curve of consciousness in the twentieth century, but the poem also transcends such considerations, telling us psychological and spiritual truths that are permanent and liberating.
