Summer Biannual Bibliothon Wrap Up

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              

Summer Biannual Bibliothon TBR

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                       

Summer Biannual Bibliothon TBRAfter 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                       

Summer Biannual Bibliothon TBRI 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.

Winter Biannual Bibliothon Wrap Up

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

Winter Biannual Bibliothon Wrap Up

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”
