If you read my last post (or caught my posts on social media), you’ll know I took part in the 24in48 readathon this weekend. So, how did I do?
I read for: 24 hours 4mins
I did it! I’m so happy, I feel like this is a real achievement – is it acceptable to mention this when applying for jobs!?! It was so worth only sleeping for 4 hours each night! I finished 4 books, one more than I thought I would – there’s nothing like a readathon to stop me procrastinating. There was a slight change to my TBR, these are the four books I finished:
I enjoyed all four books, and that was important to keep my reading momentum going. I’m particularly happy I read Dark Matter because it was FANTASTIC! I’ll have reviews up for all four books soon! I also wanted to finish reading A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara but you can’t have it all – I did read 104 pages of it though and I plan to finish it this week, so you can expect my review for it early next month.
As tiring as the readathon was, I really enjoyed it and I love how supportive the book community is. I’ll definitely be taking part again and I’ll also be better prepared, doing the majority of the reading at the beginning instead of the end. When I started the clock, I read for only 4 hours 55mins….. Jump forward to Sunday morning, in order to ensure I read for 24 hours, I had to read solidly for 8 hours 30mins – I would definitely switch those reading blocks around because I was so tired towards the end – I’m declaring readathons a sport!
Thank you for all the messages of support along the way and all the messages of congratulations – you guys are AMAZING!
