Easter Readathon 2019: The Results

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?

    Great wrap up Amy! I’m soooo happy to hear that you enjoyed Heartstopper, it’s become one of my favourite graphic novels since I read it! Also pleased to hear that TQATEOTF was good, do you think it’s as good as Loneliest Girl? Let me know what you think of Queenie when you finish it and thanks so much for taking part in the readathon!

    I’m glad you managed to read books you enjoyed even if you didn’t read as many as you wanted – although I think three over a weekend is definitely an achievement! 🙂
