I thought I would combine my wrap up for the Basically readathon and Tome topple round 10. Both of these readathons went very different from my plans haha! With all these overlapping readathons, this was bound to happen right?!
Let’s start with the basically readathon, this happened on the 15th of February! Since this was in the middle of Tome Topple, so I thought I would read a full tome on this day! Sounded like a great plan right?!
My plan was to read the entirety of Black leopard, Red wolf by Marlon James. But then I already started it the day before, since I had to start something new and didn’t want to read something else. I read a little bit under 100 pages, and had no clue what I was reading.
So when I then ‘had’ to continue on the readathon I kinda didn’t want to. Still I forced myself to read until page 250 or something, and then finally decided to DNF around 2pm. I just really wanted to love this one! But it was just not for me.
After this I didn’t really feel like reading anymore haha!
But I ended up reading 150 pages of Traitor to the throne, luckily this YA fantasy reads quite fast! Also listened to 50 pages of Heart of flames!
Now for Tome Topple..!
The first three days overlapped with polarthon, and the next week overlapped with contemporary-a-thon. I mainly read Middle grade for polarthon, which are not long, and contemporary books are generally also not tomes..
Sooo I kinda only started on the 15th instead of the 7th..
My main focus was supposed to be Black leopard, Red wolf.. But, as mentioned, that didn’t really work out haha!
So then I read Traitor to the throne by Alwyn Hamilton, since I really wanted/needed to continue this series! And I’m happy I did! I have no idea why I waited so long with continuing this series since it is so good! And it also read quit easily so I flew through the book! I ended up giving this book 4 stars!
I also listened to Heart of flames by Nicki Pau Preto, one of my most anticipated releases of this year! I freaking loved this one! I think it was just as good as book one, maybe even better?! I will now definitely consider this a favourite series of mine! 5 stars!
If we look at the bingo card, I think I have a bingo with the left line! Since you are allowed to cross of two squares with one book!
