This bank holiday weekend just gone, I took part in the Easter Readathon hosted by Kate. I took part for the first time last year and had so much fun, so I couldn’t wait for it this time around! In my last post about the Readathon I spoke about my TBR and which challenges I hoped to tick off the bingo card which you can check out here. Today I’m going to discuss what books I read, which challenges I actually did manage to complete and my overall thoughts.
The first book I finished was Heartstopper by Alice Oseman. I’d been meaning to get around to this graphic novel for the longest time and I’m so glad I finally read it. It was the cutest. I had so much fun and managed to read it in only 25 minutes! The challenges this book helped me to complete are: yellow or green cover, graphic novel that has been on your TBR for ages, new to you author, LGBTQIAP+ book and a book that involves an animal or pet.
Next I finished The Quiet at the End of the World by Lauren James. Another book I’d had on my TBR since it’s release, it took me a little longer to get through this one but I still loved it! With lots of twists and turns, it was a fantastic sci-fi YA read. The challenges I completed with this book include: LGBTQIAP+ book and a book about new beginnings.
I then moved on to Queenie by Candice Carty Williams but sadly only got around a third of the way through. I did enjoy what I managed to read and will be continuing with the story outside of the Readathon. This book would have completed challenges such as: yellow or green cover, book by an author of colour and a new to you author.
I have to admit that I am a little disappointed in myself this year. In 2018 I managed to get so much reading done over the bank holiday weekend but there has been one major change since then… I bought a house with my boyfriend! There is still a lot of work to be done since we got the keys in October, and with the good weather we decided to tick a few more jobs off the list. That meant I had less time for reading but I still think I got through some fab books!
Huge thanks to Kate for hosting the Easter Readathon again this year! Did you take part? If so, what did you manage to read?
