April was such a good reading month! I did two major readathons, OWLs Readathon and End Game Readathon (hosted by Kari and I), and successfully completed both. I even read some things that weren’t on my TBRs for my readathons, and read some short stories with my English 11 class. I read 21 things this month, which is pretty good if you ask me! I loved almost everything I read, so I really can’t complain about it all that much.
March has come to an end. I have no idea where the time went, but here we are getting ready for April. This wasn’t my best reading month, and I seem to recall that last March I read almost thirty books. So this month wasn’t quite that, but considering I took a lengthy vacation where I visited one of my best friends in the world and had minimal time to read, I did pretty good. This month I read 20 books, and I will say on the whole that it was filled with some really good reads. My lowest rated book was two stars, and I had several five star reads. Without further ado, let’s just get into the breakdown of what I read in March.
Fact: I have never participated in a readathon before.
It should be a piece o’ cake, right? Nevertheless, here is my TBR list for such the occasion.
Readathons, readathons! Readathons galore!! I never really knew that readathons were a thing until I got more involved in the online bookish community. Before that, reading was always a solitary comfort activity for me. I never knew that it could be a competitive thing that people did for achievement. That being said, I will admit to being somewhat competitive and also that I love the idea of readathons. It’s interesting to me to try and push myself as far as I can with my reading to see how much I can get read in one month. I’ve always been more interested in the month long ones, but I might have to try to do a week long one at some point. I also want to try and do a 24 hour readathon at some point, but I also really value sleep so who knows if I ever will.
