The booktube-a-thon 2017 officially ended last night and we made it!!!
I want to do a mini wrap-up since this is my first ever read-a-thon I’ve participated in! So, without any further ado, here are the challenges and books I completed over the past week:
- Read A Book With A Person On The Cover
- Read A Book You Bought Because Of The Cover
Find Her by Lisa Gardner (link to full book review here.)
- Read A Hyped Book
- Read About A Character That’s Very Different To You
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera (link to full book review here.)
- Finish A Book In One Day
Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski (link to full book review here.)
To recap, I was able to read three books over the last week, which I am pretty happy with! I knew I wouldn’t be able to complete seven books (major props to those of you who did!) and I was busy the whole weekend, so I was only able to read Monday-Thursday. All of that being said, I am definitely pleased with completing three books during the read-a-thon.
My original goal was to read We Were Four by Alexandra Sirowy, but I DNFed it after I sadly just couldn’t get into it. I also wanted to read Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi (which I am currently reading), but couldn’t finish it in time.
However, I was able to complete five of the reading challenges with the three books I chose. I wasn’t able to read a book completely outside because of the alternating heat and constant rain for three days straight and I wasn’t able to read seven books this time around.
I had a ton of fun watching the youtube videos and reading everyone’s TBRs for the read-a-thon and I’m excited to participate in more read-a-thons throughout the year!
