As you know, I’m participating in three read-a-thons this month. Since we’re a week in – and the Make Me Read It Read-a-thon started yesterday, I decided I’d do a little update.
As far as ARC’s go, I’ve read two already this month, yay! Didn’t think I could do it, but I succeeded at finishing both before the Make Me Read It Read-a-thon started.
ARC’s I read:
Convergence by J.R. Rain and Matthew S. Cox
The Summer of Hopes and Dreams by Lynsey James
For this read-a-thon I’m using all books I read, eARC’s and physical books. I’ve been able to cross off quite a few challenges already so I’d say this is going to be an easy one. Especially since the challenge is to “only” tick off six and I’ve done that already, haha!
Challenges I ticked off:
√ Read a 2017 release – Convergence by J.R. Rain and Matthew S. Cox
√ Read a diverse book – Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle
√ Read a book in 24 hours – Very Good Lives by J.K. Rowling
√ Read a new to you author – Once and for All by Sarah Dessen
√ Read a book set in summer – The Summer of Hopes and Dreams by Lynsey James
√ Read a book recommended to you by someone in the book community – The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
As you could see in my poll results, I had to read The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas first. I started it at 8 a.m. yesterday and finished it this morning at 6 a.m. [No, I didn’t read all night – my boyfriend had an early shift today and he woke me up so I decided to read a bit more, haha.]
With this, I can start Illuminae as soon as I get home from work – and I’ve been looking forward to reading it for ages now!
The only thing I’m still wondering about is whether or not to read Gemina after that and then The Night Circus.. Would that be cheating? Opinions? Haha!
How are your challenges / read-a-thons going along? Any update-posts? Let me know and I’ll check them out!
And don’t forget to join in my giveaway!
There’s an extra entry hidden in one of my previous posts, by the way.
Just so you know, you know?
