Once Upon a Readathon Wrap Up

Thanks to Lori at Pure Imagination, Angela and Loretta at Reading Angels, and Candace at Candace's Book Blog for hosting this amazing readathon!

Day 1
Day 2
Day 3

I haven't had the best luck reading-wise lately. I set a goal for 100 books this year and I only just hit 20 so I'm obviously way behind. I was also hoping to make a good dent in my summer reading stack so I can buy more books without feeling guilty I can sort out which books I want to take back to uni with me in a few weeks.

For the readathon, I decided to go with three books. A book a day, I could do that.

Day one I read Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen. It was a bit of a haul because it's a longer book and was one better absorbed slowly. The next day I devoured Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton. I was starting to get burned out but there was only one day to go.

I almost made it. I'm not actually finished with Slam by Nick Hornby yet. It's not a light-hearted book and it's taking a bit more time. Plus I ended up at my grandpa's house all yesterday afternoon and didn't think to take the book with me.

Still, I seem to have started a whole new reading kick so maybe I can make progress on my summer stack after all.

I loved SLAM, so it's worth it to keep going. And when you finish this one, there is a whole world of other great books for you to read next.

Maybe yor kick start will keep you on the reading flow. Dont get burned out though.

Hope you had fun at your gpa's house. Gpa's are the best.
