Booktubeathon 2018 Wrap-Up!

I have finally participated in the Booktubeathon! This is my wrap up (it’s a little messy). Booktubeathon took place from July 30-August 5. If you don’t know the rules then check out the Booktubeathon social media linked below:

Books completed: 

Come Closer by Sara Gran: 168 pages (This was technically my seventh book, but I didn’t read seven books)

The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis: 202 pages (Book with green on the cover)

Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng: 292 pages (Let a coin toss decide my first read)

V for Vendetta by Alan Moore and David Lloyd: 265 pages (Read and watch a book-movie adaptation.) I watched the whole movie except for maybe 10 minutes. So I guess I didn’t really complete that challenge.

Books started: 

The Caregiver by Samuel Park: I don’t know the page number because it’s an eARC, but I read up to about 35%. I didn’t include this in my page count.

Something in the Water by Catherine Steadman: 148 pages/339 pages

Books continued:

The Boy at the Door by Alex Dahl: 29 pages – 131 pages/351 pages

Pages read: 1,104 (not including my eARC)

This was my first attempt at Booktubeathon, and I loved it! I had tons of fun trying to read as much I can. It really proved that I should be reading more. Either way, I will continue participating in Booktubeathon every year from here on out. Thank you to Ariel for hosting it every year. She is doing such a great job.

If you participated in Booktubeathon I would love to see your wrap ups.
