I never mentioned that I would be participating in this read-a-thon but I have participated in the past and have always loved pushing myself to complete all the challenges. This post will give you a run down on how my reading went and what challenges I completed.
I don’t own the group book and I didn’t want to go out and buy it. This means I would only plan on doing the other six reading challenges. Also, one book can count towards two challenges. Continue reading “Winter BiAnnual Bibliothon Wrap-up”
October seems to be the month for read-a-thons, I would love to particitpate in them all but that would just not work and most likely end up burning out and result in the dreaded reading slump. So, I have chosen only one to do and that is the sbooktacular created by Jasmine from novelthoughts.co. This read-a-thon start tomorrow Oct. 25 and ends Oct. 31.
The reason why I went with Sbooktacular is because it is a choose your own adventure this way you pick what challenges you want and fit the books you own. From the pictures you would think I would have went with the witch path but no, I have chosen the skeleton path. 😛 Continue reading “Sbooktacular Read-a-thon TBR”
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”
