Hey Book Nerds!
So, I don’t know what happened, or what was in the water, but April was an amazing reading month for me. I managed to read 6 things this month which is insane for me! Here’s everything I read in April:
Quicksand by Nella Larson: 3/5 Stars
My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher: 4/5 Stars (audiobook)
The Good Girl by Mary Kubica: 4/5 Stars
A List of Cages by Robin Roe: 5/5 Stars
Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols: 2/5 Stars
ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria for the End Times- 2/5 Stars (graphic novel)
That’s everything that I read in April! What all did you read in April?
Hey Book Nerds!
This past weekend, as you guys know, I participated in the Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon for the very first time, and I loved it! I am definitely going to attempt in future Dewey’s if I am able to. But, for this readathon, I ended up reading 2 books, which I am pleased with! I read for a total of 14 hours and read 393 pages. Here are the books I read:
A List of Cages by Robin Roe
I went into the readathon at 96/310 pages read of this book. I absolutely loved this book. It broke my heart 1000 times and mended it 1001 times. I may have sobbed about 5 different times, but this book was so beautiful and so sad and so incredible that I couldn’t help it. This book is so important. Please go read it. That’s all because I still can’t form coherent thoughts about this book.
Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols
I started the readathon with 66/245 pages read of this book. Unfortunately, I really did not like this book. I hated the relationship, it was extremely inst-lovey, and there were random side plots that were thrown it at the most random times and were completely unnecessary. It honestly just seemed like a “I need to make this more interesting, lets throw something random in there without ever fully explaining why and what it has to do with anything and oh yeah, let’s put it at the most random part of the book where it makes absolutely no sense” idea. This book was just all over the place and confusing. I did like both of the main characters, I just didn’t like their relationship. This book did make me laugh a ton, which is what saved it from a one star rating.
That’s all I managed to read during the readathon! Did you take part in the readathon? If so, how did you do?
