I participated in my first readathon this year – Spookathon, hosted by one of my favorite Booktubers (booksandlala). This readathon ran from October 14-20. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize in my TBR preparations that I would be working all week. I ended up only completing 1 of my 5 books I had planned to read. To top it off, I didn’t really enjoy that book either. 😔
I had posted a pic of the books on my TBR on my instagram, but seeing as how I am a mood reader, I ended up changing some of them at the last minute. I did start a couple of other books on my TBR, but was unable to finish them before the week was over. I finally finished a 2nd book from that TBR, but was not overly impressed with it. I might need to rethink my plans for the next readathon…
From October 25-31, I participated in my 2nd readathon–Nightmareathon, which is hosted by another of my favorite Booktubers (Jacqueline @ We Be Book’n) along with ShelbyTaggart reads and Kendra Loves Books. I once again chose 5 books that cross all 7 challenges. I happened to be off work this time though so I had better success! I still ended up changing my TBR a little, but I did finish the new TBR by the end.
This was my original Nightmareathon TBR. I ended up switching out What You Did for The Lost by Natasha Preston. I just couldn’t get into the first book so I ended up DNFing it.
Below is the list of books I completed and ratings for each during these 2 readathons.
- Asylum by Madeleine Roux ⭐️⭐️⭐️
- The Grownup by Gillian Flynn ⭐️⭐️⭐️
- And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- The Lost by Natasha Preston ⭐️⭐️⭐️
- Doing Harm by Kelly Parsons ⭐️⭐️
