I recently participated in two readathons that occurred at the same time. The first readathon was the DAReadathon hosted by Aentee from Read At Midnight which happened January 1st to the 15th. The Second readathon was the Biannual Bibliothon and that happened January 8th to the 15th.
I’m going to start with the DAReadathon. This is a readathon that celebrated diversity and had seven challenges titled after spells from Harry Potter.
I completed 5 out of 7 of the challenges and the titles will by in pink
Expecto Patronum: A List of Cages by Robin Roe
Expelliarmus: The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness (I borrowed the audiobook from my library)
Protego: The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
Reducto: Black Moon by Romina Russell
Impedimenta: A Whole New World by Liz Braswell
Stupefy: The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
Lumos: The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh
On to the Biannual Bibliothon:
Group book: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
Throwback- For this challenge, you can pick any reading challenge from previous bibliothons. I chose childhood re-read: Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
2016 Release: It wasn’t Always Like This by Joy Preble
BookTuber Rec: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
Book I Never Picked Up But Was Excited To Read: Sophomore Year Is Greek to Me by Meredith Zeitlin
Retelling: It Wasn’t Always Like This by Joy Preble
Diverse Book: The Sun is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon
I was able to complete all the challenges and read all the books.
Two readathons are the same time? I can barely handle one. I’m always so stressed I won’t be able to get everything done. How did you like The Rest of Us Just Live Here? I’ve been meaning to pick it up.
I can’t form an opinion on The Rest of Us Just Live Here until I read the actual book.
For some reason I thought you said you did. It’s possible that I was really tired at the time of commenting, apologies!
I listened to the audiobook and it didn’t work for me, so until I read the actual book either in print/digital form I can’t form an opinion.
Wow you did a great job 😀 What do you think about the group read Stalking Jack the Ripper?
It was okay.
Wow you did a lot of reading! Great job! Did you like The Sun is Also a Star? I just read Nicola Yoon’s first book Everything Everything
Thank you! I did enjoy it, I rated it four stars because the insta-love bothered me,
Congrats on completing the challenges. Hope all your reads were fun.
