Another readathon over. As always, I had a lot of fun participating in this one!
This time, it was a very laid back readathon for me.
I started with everyone’s an aliebn when ur an aliebn too by Jomny Sun. It was a fun and definitely thought provoking read.
I then picked up The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky by Mackenzi Lee. This is a novella set inbetween books one and two of the Montague Siblings series. I had the absolute best time reading this story! I found myself laughing so much!
Lastly, I started Final Girls by Riley Sager. I got about 30 pages into this one before I called it a night. I’m definitely intrigued by this story so far, but I think I’m going to wait to continue until I can get the audiobook for this. I think the audiobook may be the way to go for this! (Currently on hold at the library)
And that’s it! Did you participate in this readathon? What did you read?
It’s time to participate in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! This starts October 23rd at 8am EST time. You can click here to find your time! I always have a fun time with this readathon, and as always my goal is just to read as much as I can!
I don’t have a set TBR! I have some options, and when the readathon starts I’ll figure out what I’ll read!
Dewey’s 24 Reverse Readathon is over and I feel very happy with myself. I was able to read two books and had a lot of fun participating in sprints, and seeing people’s updates online.
I started the readathon with Date Me, Bryson Keller by Kevin Van Whye. I thought this would be a fun and quick read for this readathon and I was right! I was really enjoying this one.
I decided to change it up and pick up an audiobook. I went with Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll because I also had a physical copy of this so I could follow along. I got about 40 pages into this and was just not feeling it so I put it down. I still wanted an audiobook so I jumped onto Libby and chose Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds. This was a good choice. It was quick, but also very engaging!
The next day I spent the rest of the readathon finishing Date Me, Bryson Keller.
Overall, I completed two books, a total of 642 pages in 24 hours. I’m happy with that! It was a fun and relaxing readathon and I’m excited for the next one!
Did you participate in the Reverse Readathon? If so, how did you do?
It’s Dewey’s Reverse Readthon this weekend, so I figured why the hell not join in? So a 24 hour readathon will be happening on Friday August 6th at 8pm EST to Saturday August 7th 8pm EST! Check out Dewey’s website for more information and to find out what time the readathon starts for you!
Honestly, I’m not sure what I want to read at the moment. I’m kind of in the thriller mood, but also a romance mood. I also have a couple library books on my kindle that I need to get to as well! So honestly, we’ll see what the mood is for the weekend! As of now some options include:
Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall
Date Me, Bryson Keller by Kevin Van Whye
Final Girls by Riley Sager
There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins
During this readathon my goal was not to stay up for the entire 24 hours…I cant do that, but to just read more than I have been in a day. And I accomplished that. I was able to start and finish a book, and get about 70 pages into another, so I’m really happy with how it turned out!
I started and finished Yes No Maybe So and it was a good read. I ended up giving this book a 3 out of 5 stars.
I also got about 70 pages into Wicked Fox, which I’m quite enjoying! So it was a good reading day for me. On Goodreads(click to add me as a friend) it says that the kindle edition of Yes No Maybe So is 448 pages. So that plus the 70 pages of Wicked Fox means I was able to read 518 pages in a day. I’m very happy with that. Did you guys participate? How did you do?
Happy Readathon Day! It’s the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon today and so my day is going to consist of me starting and reading as much as I can of Wicked Fox. I will also be reading Alex + Ada in between. Are you participating? What are you reading?
Dana over at @andbookhoarding hosted the Informal Impromptu Readathon from February 27th until March 4th. As what I normally do, I decided to join in last minute. It was a fun readathon, with sprints being hosted every night, which really helped with my reading. I was able to read 3 books this week, which is the most I’ve read in one week!
The first book I read was The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury and I gave this book a 4 out of 5. This book was a retelling of Aladdin and was a definite surprise. I really enjoyed the characters and retake on the story!
Next I read Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I’ve been wanting to read this book since I watched the trailer. I’m really glad I was able to get to it during the readathon. This book was such a fast read, and I really did end up enjoying it. I ended up giving this book a 4.3 out of 5. I loved how it was told throughout different formats like IM’s and Emails as well. The characters were a lot of fun and I loved the romance.
The last book I read Was Nerve by Jeanne Ryan. I really didn’t like this book and I gave it a 1 out of 5. I watched he movie last month which made me want to read the book. I enjoyed the movie. It wasn’t anything great, but it was simply fun to watch on a Sunday afternoon. However, I really didn’t like the book. I didn’t like the writing, or the characters, and I really didn’t like the romance. It just wasn’t for me. I do however recommend the movie if you want something fun.
So this Friday, and the rest of the weekend I plan on reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. A classic of course! This is for the readawatchalong that is going on in the month of December hosted by Maureen. You can check out the announcement video here: Harry Xmas To You
