It has been one hell of a week but I have managed to complete the rainbow read-a-thon! I have no idea how I was able to read six books in a week, it was a new record for me. I feel completely washed out, who knew you could read too much, because I certainly didn’t. I mean, I am actually really tired now after what felt like was a sprint of reading. Or maybe it was because I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning reading every day, then got up early to do it all over again.
So I read almost all of the books that I said I would read, apart from one small change. For my purple book I decided to read Cold Water by Gwendoline Riley instead of Postcards From The Heart by Ella Griffin. I was just really tired by Saturday and I wanted to read something short so I could just finish the read-a-thon. Which is what I did because Cold Water was only like 150 pages, where as Postcards From The Heart was around 400 pages, and I just didn’t know if i was going to be able to do it. You could say I took the easy route. But whatever, I’m still happy with what I read, and that’s what the read-a-thon was for, right? To enjoy yourself!
So here’s how my week went:
Monday: Finished reading Sinner, which I had already been reading since Friday
Tuesday: Started reading Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore, finished it that evening. Started reading Lament.
Wednesday: Finished reading Lament in the evening, started reading Fangirl.
Thursday: Finished with Fangirl.
Friday: Started reading A Long Way Down.
Saturday: Finished reading A Long Way Down, read Cold Water in one sitting.
Sunday: REST! (Too much reading, if there could ever be a thing).
So as you can see I read pretty much every day that week. And that’s not to say that I wasn’t busy because I was. I had to work this week so it was hard to squeeze in reading time. But I managed it and I’m so happy that I was able to accomplish this, it was really fun challenging myself to see how much I was able to read. So here is the finished list of all the books that I read this week:
Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater(orange)
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell(green)
Cold Water by Gwendoline Riley(purple)
I will be reviewing all of these books over the coming week so you will see those posts popping up soon hopefully! If you participated in this read-a-thon please let me know how you got on and what books you read.
Happy reading 🙂
