I finally have a three day weekend, and it will be the only one for a while, so I decided to not do anything on Friday and leave my school work for the actual weekend! So what better way is there then to spend this free day doing my own 24H readathon! But my main focus is to relax and destress a bit, so if I don’t end up reading I want be too harsh on myself!
(obviously I’m writing this before the actual readathon)
- Tunnel of bones by VE Schwab (I mean this should be a quick read)
- Paper girls vol. 5 by Brian Vaughan (graphic novel is always a good idea!)
- Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (yes, I haven’t read this, hopefully it is a quick read)
- And if time continue with Wicked fox by Kat Cho (but probably not)
- If I want to listen to an audiobook I could listen to Binti by Nnedi Okorafor (only 2,5 hours), which will be a reread!
What actually happened:
I woke up (I don’t why I always wake up early), so I decided to just start this readathon! So I made some tea and started reading Tunnel of bones!
Read around a 100 pages, and then decided to take a little break and read some blog posts!
Got hungry, so ate breakfast and continued with Tunnel of bones!
Finished my first read! Really enjoyed this one! Not my favourite Schwab book, but very enjoyable! (review will come!)
Started Fangirl! I was really in a reading mood, so I taught I would just continue with my next read!
Read like 70 pages, but really needed a break from it, since I wasn’t really feeling this book.. So I went and did my groceries, since I needed food! While I did that I listened to 2 hours of Binti (double speed). Also used my groceries to make lunch 🙂
Continued with Fangirl, until I reached page 160!
Really want to finish my reread of Binti, so I listened to the last half hour of the audiobook!
Finished Binti! Already done with 2,5 books! Here I thought I would take an hour break, before continuing with Fangirl.. But that went quite differently!
My friends asked me to join them to this ‘light show’, so I went there, since I taught it would be a good ides to actually go outside a bit. Here are some photo’s!
Then after that we got hungry, and grabbed a burger! (which was very good)
Sooo, I was finally back haha! I immediately started reading paper girls vol. 5! Also at 20:30 one of my favourite shows started so I watched and read at the same time, so I didn’t read very fast! In the mean time there was also this very scary insect walking around, and I kept trying to kill it but it was so fast, that also really distracted me! (I did end up killing it!)
Finished Paper girls, loved it, I really need the last volume!
Continued Fangirl and watching TV!
So I made the decision to DNF Fangirl.. I made it to page 208, and also red the last 30 pages..!
I was just not liking it at all, got bored, and didn’t really care what was happening to the characters! Also what I read from the ending I didn’t like that much, but of course I don’t know what let to that, since I skipped 200 pages. But on the positive side, it did made me really want to read Carry on, and that was my main reason for reading this book.
I want to continue with Wicked fox, but I ended scrolling uselessly on my phone and fell asleep!
Tunnel of bones – 3 stars!
Paper girls vol. 5 – 5 stars!
Binti – 5 stars!
Fangirl – DNF
My secret goal was reading 1000 pages, I didn’t end up reaching that, but made it to 730 pages, which I’m still very happy with!
And the most important thing is that I had a good day!
I’m also very happy I finally ‘tried’ reading Fangirl, so now I can go and read Carry on!
