Wow. What a whirlwind of a weekend. I had so much fun!
For those of you who aren’t familiar, I participated in a read-a-thon this weekend called 24 in 48. It runs for 48 hours and hundreds of readers all over the world try to read as many hours, up to 24, in just those two days. It’s crazy, insane, totally unadvisable, and it’s really really fun.
This Summer’s 24 in 48 started at midnight on Saturday morning and ended at midnight last night. Whew! I’m beat, honestly. And that means its time for some stats!
Hours read: 20 hours spent reading
Number of books read: Six
Number of pages read: 2,194 pages
Number of breaks taken because the cat needed attention: 8
Number of times I lost my bookmark: Every time I took it out of the book.
Number of times I reset my timer accidentally: Too many.
Missed the updates? Here’s a peek!
I had such a fun time AND I got to put a dent in the stack of books that’s been sitting on my desk to be read this month. What did I read, you ask?
Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
I was a quarter of the way into this book when I started, and I had so much fun rereading it! It’s been years and this book is just as good as it once was.
Sabrina: Season of the Witch by Sarah Rees Brennan
This was fun! I read this in anticipation of a Blog Tour I’m participating in for this title and I enjoyed myself! It’s short, sweet, and a fun homage to the Netflix show, which I’m a fan of. Look for the review and tour on my blog soon!
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Agh, I’ve already gushed about this book enough in my mini-reviews, and I may even write up a full review for it. I loved this. SO much. Taylor Jenkins Reid has proven herself an outstanding storyteller.
Small Spaces by Katherine Arden
This was fun and not at all what I usually read, so even more fun for that fact. This is a Middle Grade novel provided to me through Netgalley and I knew nothing about it going in. Turns out it’s eerie, fun, and a sweet, sweet story.
The Voice of My Mind by T.A. Fish
Eh, I didn’t love this book of poetry. Mostly for personal preference, it just didn’t vibe with me. But it was definitely a nice break in between novels this weekend!
The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh
I won this ARC from BookishFirst and I was SO EXCITED when I did! I needed to get this read so I could review it and I’m glad that I got the chance this weekend! Even though this is a YA fantasy, its outside the topics I usually gravitate toward (recently, anyway) so I was worried. No reason to be! This was such a lush, rich, fun read.
What did you read this weekend?? Any more #24in48 survivors?? Let me know in the comments!
