booktubeathon wrap up!

Tuesday 26 July 2016

The booktubeathon has come to an end. I read a total of three books, a total I am very okay with. It's not the seven I had planned, but when does life ever go according to plan? In fact, I'm pleased to have just finished a single book!

The books I read:
Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
The Yellow Wallpaper (including two other short stories) by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
The Old Nurse's Story (including another short story) by Elizabeth Gaskell

Everything started well, I started reading Saint Anything and got quite a lot read on Monday and Tuesday. Then I stopped reading for a couple of days mid-week (hump day is real + I graduated so that was a thing that happened and took up my time) and then I was hit by the realisation that I’m done with education for reals and spent the next couple of days eating copious amounts of chocolate, no regrets. On the final day, I powered through two short story books and finished Saint Anything, thanks to some twitter sprints, which were so much fun I was sad to have missed all the previous sprints! I will probably share my thoughts in more depth and write some reviews on them later, so keep an eye out for those!

For the reading challenges, I managed to read a book by one of my favourite authors- Saint Anything and a book that’s older than me – both The Yellow Wallpaper and The Nurse’s Tale are applicable! I’m slowly but surely going to continue with reading the books I had planned to read for this readathon. I’m super excited to continue making my way through these books and participating in the booktubeathon has definitely reignited my love for reading! I’m so pleased and excited for all the books to come! The booktubeathon may have come to an end but my reading will continue deep into the night! (and day)
