Read-a-thin: May 2018 wrap-up

May is over, meaning the May round of Read-a-thin is also over! Read-a-thin is a readathon created by Jessica at JessicaMarie, Amanda at ACourtofBooksandLove and Chelsea at AVeryBookishGirl. You can see the Goodreads group here and my sign-up post here!

To recap the rules:

  • You will have the entire month to read these books.
  • The goal is to complete 6 challenges!
  • You can double up on challenges. In other words, you can use one book for two different challenges! So you only have to read 3 books in a month to completely finish the readathon!
  • They have to be (should be) books already on your TBR

And here’s how I did!

Challenge 7: Read a manga/graphic novel (or read a short story/poetry collection)
Book: Hunger by Lan Samantha Chang
Status: finished! I rated Hunger 4 stars and I loved it!

Challenge 11: Read a book that is a part of a series
Challenge 14: Read a book with a MC that is the opposite of you
Book: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Status: finished! I loved Strange the Dreamer!! It was everything I was hoping for and more!

Challenge 12: Read a book you’ve been meaning to get to but haven’t
Challenge 15: Read a book that was either gifted to you by your mother/grandmother or a book that is related to a mother in some way
Book: The White Masai by Corinne Hofmann
Status: did not start. I just wasn’t feeling this book, so instead of putting myself in a slump, I read something else.

Challenge 13: Read a book you started but ended up putting down
Book: American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Status: finished!! Finally! Ultimately, I really enjoyed American Gods and am so glad I finally finished it!

So not bad! I’m super happy with how I did!

Also, sorry for being MIA the past couple of days. I was at a conference for work for a few days, which was a ton of fun but didn’t leave me a lot of time to blog. And then I was just lazy when I came back ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 Thanks for reading!!

  1. Ahh Neil Gaiman. So many of the books I read of his were put down for a while before I actually ended up finishing them. His writing’s so good, I don’t know what my deal is. I think American Gods will be my next Gaiman read though (most recent being The Ocean at the End of the Lane).

    I just bought Strange the Dreamer and it will be my first experience reading Laini Taylor. I’m so excited to pick it up!

    1. American Gods is awesome! Definitely very Gaiman, it’s just very long. I hope you enjoy it!!

      I hope you like Strange the Dreamer too! It was my first Laini Taylor as well, and I think I definitely need to read more!
