Hello Everyone, yesterday was the end of the Biannual Bibliothon and I am here to let you know how I did. I was able to finish 4 out of the 6 books I planned on reading and I completed 5 of the 7 challenges. I am happy with how did, I did get a little burnt out by the end of it and hardly read much of anything but that’s OK.
1. Read a retelling
I started reading Winter on the 7th to get a head start because it is a huge book. I didn’t get to far into on the Saturday and I didn’t finish it until the 14th. I mostly listened to the audiobook for this one. When I was doing chores around the house or going to and from work I would just listen to this. I thought the narrator, Rebecca Soler, did a fabulous job and would recommend listening to the audiobooks for this series. 823 pages read.
2. Read a diverse book
Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Tally was the first book I completed for the Bibliothon. I read this all day Sunday and I thought it was a great book and highly recommend. 416 pages read.
3. Read the Group Book: Stalking Jack the Ripper
Next I started on the group book and I thought this one was an OK read. I read this from the 9th till the 11th, which took longer than I was hoping but oh well. That was a total of 326 pages read.
4. Read a book a booktuber recommended to you
I started this challenge next because I thought I could read Red Queen quickly and I could have finished it on Friday but since I was slacking and didn’t do much reading and opted to watching movies with the BF instead. I ended up finishing it early Saturday. 383 pages read
5. Read a book you were really excited for but never picked up
I started A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas on Saturday but only got 150 pages into and was so tired I decided to call it quits and go to bed.
I didn’t start or complete the read a 2016 new release challenge. In toal I read 2,098 pages and I think that is a lot for one week. So, overall I am pretty proud of myself. 🙂
