The Summer Biannual Bibliothon wrapped up on Saturday and I have to say I didn’t do as well as I was hoping, I would say it was a fail. I don’t know what it was but I did not want to read last week and didn’t follow my game plan at all. I did finish 3 books though so, not terrible but still not the six like I wanted.
Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour
Everything Leads to You was the first book I picked up to start the Bibliothon and I finished reading it the first day. This book completed the challenge to read a LGBTQ+ book. I was off to a good start and don’t know what happened after.
I enjoyed this book and thought it was cute contemporary read. I found it interesting to get a behind the scenes look at how movies are made.
Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
After finishing Everything Leads to You I picked up Huckleberry Finn and was wanting to finish it also on Sunday but that did not go as planned. I ended up finishing it Saturday. I read this for the read a banned book challenge.
I did enjoy this children’s classic and now I want to pick up the Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
I finished this Saturday and then watched the movie to complete the read a book to movie adaptation challenge. I thought this book was okay and I think I liked the movie more. The ending was not satisfying to me.
There you have it the three books that I finished for the week of the Biannual Bibliothon. I did start reading Christine Falls by Benjamin Black but only got 100 pages and some into it. Did anyone also participate in any of the read-a-thons that were going on last week? If you did let me know how you did.
The Summer Biannual Bibliothon has started and I plan on taking part. I did participate in the Winter Bibliothon and like the reading challenges and taking the time to read more than I normally would. I really hope I can get through all the six book I have on my TBR.
1. Read the group book.
The group book is Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdeih. I don’t own this book and don’t really plan on reading it this week because I don’t want to go out and buy and I am on my library’s waiting list but am sure I won’t be able to check it out in time. Oh well. Continue reading “Summer Biannual Bibliothon TBR”
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. Continue reading “Winter Biannual Bibliothon Wrap Up”
The winter biannual bibliothon is happening this Sunday and I plan on participating to get a head start on my reading goal of 70 books. I am just participating in the reading challenges and not the video challenges.
1. Read the Group Book: Stalking Jack the Ripper
I don’t own this book and I didn’t want to run out and buy it so, I stopped by my library and luckily they had it available to check out. I do look forward to reading this because I have heard some good things about it. Continue reading “Winter Biannual Bibliothon TBR”
