So the BookTubeAThon is over and I have finally slept a full 8 hours! Sorry for the lack of posts I’ve been reading so much the last week I feel like I’m drowning under reviews to write.
Okay so I did the Booktubeathon and not only was it really fun I made a sizable dint in my TBR.
I managed to read 5 books out of the 7:
The first book I read was Nina is not Ok. This was my Read a book with yellow on the cover. You can click on the photo for my full review but I gave this a 2/5 stars. It just wasn’t for me and I couldn’t connect with the Main Character Nina. I skim read a lot of pages and was so happy when I finally finished it!
The second challenge was Read a book you found through BookTube. I”ve heard so much about Morgan Matson’s books and only had this left to read to complete all of them, so I thought this would be perfect for this category 😀 I loved it, I teared up it was fantastic. I will be posting a full review for this soon!
For Read a book that’s older than you I started The Picture of Dorian Gray and got halfway before I realized I didn’t have the right mindset to really give this book all my attention so I swapped it for The Little Prince.
I have never read this before and I loved it! The story the images. I am currently learning French so I think I’m going to by the original version and read that to help me learn some more. I also read this at night so it counted towards my Only read after Sunset Challenge.
Read 7 more books! Obviously I only read 5 BUT for my two wild cards I chose The Fill in Boyfriend and On the Fence by Kasie West. I absolutely loved both of these stories and would highly recommend them if you’re looking for a perfect summer contemporary!
I gave The fill in Boyfriend 4/5 stars and On the Fence 5/5 stars.
I also started The Savage Song by V.E. Schwab but I’m still reading it. So I missed out on Read a book by a favorite Author and Read a book and watch the Movie adaptations.
This was my first ever reading challenge/marathon and I’m happy with my 5 books off my TBR! I had a heap of fun seeing the challenge videos and posts and being apart of the twitter sprints.
I will definitely be participating in more reading challenges this year and hopefully tackle my TBR
