Five students walk into detention…only four walk out. Everyone’s a suspect.
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
- Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo
What do you guys plan to read?
One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston
I recently read Red, White & Royal Blue by this author and really enjoyed it. So I’ve been wanting to read another story by them!
Get A Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
I’ve been hearing nothing but good things about this series, so I’ve been wanting to check it out asap!
Beach Read by Emily Henry
This book has been on my radar for a while now!
Mango Summer by Agay Llanera
Honestly, I haven’t heard of this book before. I just randomly came across it and the synopsis sounds very cute so I decided to add it to my to be read pile!
Tweet Cute by Emma Lord
I keep borrowing this book from my library, but never get around to reading it before I have to return it! I hope to get to it this summer!
These are just the romance books I want to get to this summer. I also have a list of other books as well that I will probably share soon! What romance books do you have on your summer list?
- Cresent City by Sarah J. Maas
- Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
- Two Can Keep A Secret by Karen M. McManus
- Pachinko by Min Jin Lee
- Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
- Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
So far out of these six, I’ve finished Shadow and Bone. Have you read any of these?
I have a question…I just recently finished reading Shadow and Bone which I wanted to read before watching the show.
My question is does the show follow just the first book, or does it contain spoilers for the entire trilogy?(I know it has some characters from the Six of Crows series). I’m trying to figure out if it’s necessary to read the entire trilogy before watching the show, or not. Since I would rather not be spoiled for the rest of the books?
What are your thoughts?
Shadow and Bone
I have the tv show cover edition because this book is sold out! This is the only edition I could find in stores, and I’m not a fan of this cover…but oh well.
This is all I’ve been seeing and hearing about lately since the show came out. I really want to watch the show, but I also wanted to read the books first so I’m finally reading it. For those who have watched the show, does the show focus on just the first book or the entire trilogy? I’m trying to decide if it’s necessary to read the entire trilogy before watching the show?
One Of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus
This book was a lot of fun! I was worried because it’s told from four characters points of view, but honestly I found myself enjoying each character. I was really invested in this story and how it would unfold. I don’t know how I feel about the ending. For me, it was okay. I know some people really enjoyed the ending, while others not so much. Other than that, this was a good read! It was also my first Karen McManus book, and now I’m excited to read more books by her.
Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy
This was an interesting take on the Arthurian legend. I don’t read many retellings that deal with the Arthurian legend, so this was fun. I really thought this was a standalone going into it, but when I got to the end it leaves off on a cliffhanger. I should’ve looked into it more because I was looking for a standalone. Regardless, this was an enjoyable book.
Yes No Maybe So by Becca Albertalli and Aisha Saeed
I read this during Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon. It was a good read for a readathon. It keep me interested throughout the story. It’s one of those books(at least for me) that was good while I read it, but it’s not something I’ll go back to.
Wicked Fox by Kat Cho
I started this during Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon and finished it a few days later. I really enjoyed this book! It was entertaing and very addicting. And I really enjoyed all of the characters. If you’re a fan of KDRAMAS, you’ll really enjoy this because it does read like one!
Fruit Baskets Vol 1
This was an okay read for me. The ending though went from happy to sad real quick! I eventually want to continue on with this!
So Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon is over and I had a lot of fun participating!
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?
