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)_/¯
