Hello everyone! So on October 21st I participated in Dewey’s 24 hour Read-a-thon. The link takes you to the website that explains when they have the read-a-thons and everything else that goes along with it. I didn’t end up sticking to my TBR just because I knew I wouldn’t finish most of those books.
I started reading Without Merit by Colleen Hoover before I started the read-a-thon. I had 155 pages left and I finished it. There is short review of it on my Goodreads. If you want to see a full review here on my blog comment down below! I would gladly write one.
After finishing that I picked up a few books.
The first book was Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire. I was going into this with high expectations considering most people love it. I haven’t been let down yet. I read 53 pages of that and I am definitely enjoying it.
I started reading Heartless by Marissa Mayer before the read-a-thon but I read 23 pages during. I’m buddy reading it with a friend on Goodreads and we can both agree that it’s not a good book. That’s all I’m going to say about it because I need to finish it.
Orbiting Jupiter by Gary D. Schmidt was the last book I picked up and I ended up reading 91 pages of that. Honestly, I was expecting to finish the book but life got in the way of that. I will definitely finish it soon though, considering how small it is and how big the font is. I’m sort of enjoying it but honestly it’s a little boring to me. Hopefully it gets better.
Overall I read 322 pages for my first read-a-thon. I was hoping to get quite a few books out of the way but I’m happy with what I read. 322 pages for me in one day is actually quite a bit. I barely hit 100 most of the time.
Let me know if you participated in Dewey’s read-a-thon or any other read-a-thon! I would like to see what all of you read and accomplished. Remember to be respectful and happy reading!
