This weekend was the 24in48 Readathon and y’all, it went so well! I didn’t complete the full 24 hours because Larkin likes to take breaks and sleep (I’m old, I can’t help it!). However, I did complete every single one of my goals that I set in my TBR post on Thursday! And isn’t that what these readathons are all about?
Total Hours Read
- 15 of 24 hours – I was really hoping to read the full 24 hours, but things happen and that’s okay. I still think 15 hours is pretty damn good. I also go to see Dunkirk during one of my breaks and that movie was freaking amazing, so I think it was time well spent.
- A Million Junes by Emily Henry – 350 pages
- The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2) by Samantha Shannon – 510 pages
- Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman – 281 pages
- Read at least 600 pages. – FREAKING NAILED IT. I ended up reading a total of of 918 pages. Yes, you read that right! I actually almost 1,000 pages in 15 hours and that is way cool to me. I would’ve even hit the 1,000 mark if I hadn’t started A Million Junes Friday night before the readathon started. But sue me, I was eager to get to it!
- Read 3 different books. – You bet your ass I did! I was a little worried that I might not make it to even picking up my third book, as I’ve been reading a tad slower than usual lately. However, not only did I make it to the 3rd book, I finished it! I gave myself a little pat on the back for that one.
- Complete the Hype or Like Friday July BOTM, A Million Junes. – As I mentioned a moment ago, I was able to finish all three books on my TBR, including this one! If you haven’t read this book yet, I really encourage you to do so. This book is definitely one of my favorites of 2017 so far, and is certainly the most beautiful. It broke my heart but in the best way possible. I could go on and on about how much I loved it, but I think you just need to read for yourself and I’ll save my gushing for the review.
Now, I’m sure that tons of people were able to read more hours, books, pages, etc., but I’m not going to compare myself to anyone else. I completed the goals that were important to me and I hope that everyone else who participated was able to achieve that as well. And if you had a great time this weekend, then I think that’s all that matters.
Everyone should give themselves a round of applause for having such a fun weekend of reading! I hope to see all of you during the next readathon!
Did you participate in this round of 24in48? What were some of your goals? Did you complete them? Did you enjoy the books that you read? Will you be participating in future readathons?
