Hello! Last week I participated in the Cram-A-Thon. The goal of this readathon was to complete 7 books in a week. I decided to join last minute (check out my TBR here), so I wasn’t sure how well I was going to do. That being said, I actually did incredible!?! While I didn’t manage to read 7 books, I’m still so proud of how much I accomplished!
Here’s what I managed to read:
1. A Predicted 5 Star Read
I read Sanctuary by Meg Cabot for this challenge. While it wasn’t my favorite book in the series, and so, not quite a 5 star read after all, it was still a solid 4 stars, and I’m so happy to have read it. I really enjoyed it!
2. A Book That’s Out of Your Comfort Zone
For this challenge, I read the poetry book, The Witch Doesn’t Burn in This One by Amanda Lovelace. I’m not a huge poetry person, so I didn’t love this book. However, I really felt the emotion and the author’s passion behind her words.
3. A Book That’s Been on Your TBR for a Long Time
Fire and Ice by Erin Hunter was such a fun and adventurous read! As a huge cat lover, this series is perfect for me, and this book was so fun and intriguing to read.
4. A LGBTQ+ Ownvoices Book
Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp was a really unique and important read. It focuses on the importance mental health. I admit I was hoping for a little bit more from this book, but regardless, I still thoroughly enjoyed reading this one.
5. Something That’s Not a Standard Novel
Goldie Vance by Hope Larson was such a cute and fun graphic novel! I loved the illustrations, the mystery, and all the characters. Goldie, herself, reminded me quite a bit of Nancy Drew and Penny Parker (the original Carolyn Keene’s own mystery series).
6. A Book with Your Favorite Color on the Cover
My favorite color is pink, so I decided to go with The Borrowers by Mary Norton for this challenge. This is the only book I wasn’t able to complete for the readathon. I only had about 40 pages to go, but I was SO tired on the last night of the readathon that I just couldn’t finish the book. I did finish it the next day though, and this book was so enjoyable! It was completely different, and wayyy better than the movie.
Overall, I’m so pleased with how much progress I made for this readathon! I really didn’t expect to read more than 3 books, and instead, I nearly completed everything. I’m honestly so proud of myself! 🙂
