I decided to participate in the 48 hour Becca’s BookoplAthon unexpectedly. Honestly, I knew I didn’t have much time for it but I started watching the first live reading sprints and couldn’t resist. 😂 I needed to study and had other stuff to do during the weekend, so I basically only read in the afternoon and at night and it felt so good! I didn’t even knew I needed this kind of weekend! It was fun to read and watch the live reading sprints. Here’s what I read:
Prompt 1: Dark Cover
Prompt 2: Fantasy
I combined the first two prompts and I’ve finished The Great Hunt. I started it before the readathon but I still had 311 pages to finish it. (311 pages)
Prompt 3: POC Rep
Promp 4: Contemporary
I combined these prompts too. I read I’ll Be the One and I looooved it! (336 pages)
Prompt 5: First Book in a Series
Fence seemed like a great choice for this prompt. It has been sitting on my shelves for a while, it was short and I was looking forward to read it. (112 pages)
Prompt 6: Chance Card (Use a random number generator to select a book from a list with a even mix of books you want to read and others you’re less excited about) – I only considered books on my shelves.
I selected 3 books I really didn’t want to read during the readathon (Master of One, A Dark and Hollow Star, Prince of Thorns), 1 book I didn’t mind reading (Queen of Nothing) and 2 books I wanted to read mainly because of the page count (Lumberjanes and My Beyjing). I didn’t get lucky but it also wasn’t bad considering the other two books that I didn’t want to read had way more pages.
My options were: 1) Master of One; 2) Lumberjanes; 3) Queen of Nothing; 4) Prince of Thorns; 5) A Dark and Hollow Star; 6) My Beyjing
And the random number generator was… 4! (399 pages)
Prompt 7: Set in Present Day
I started Lore before the readathon but I still had 258 pages to finish it. (258 pages)
Prompt 8: Other (Book from a Genre You Don’t Typically Read)
I don’t typically read Graphic Novels so I decided to pick up Lumberjanes. (128 pages)
I read 1.544 pages during the weekend… and I don’t even know how I managed it. I had a great time! If I had to pick a favorite book I’d pick I’ll be the One, I loved it! Next would be The Great Hunt and Fence.
What have you read this weekend? Have you read any of these books?
