24 Hour Readathon

okay

Sleep and books are two things that I love dearly. I am also prepared to willingly sacrifice one of them for the other- I don’t think you even need to guess which one. Because if there’s anyone who would willingly inject coffee into their eyes in order to just keep on reading, it’s me. This gal right here.

I did a 24 Hour Readathon!Β 

On 22nd March, I teamed up with Audrey from audreywritesabroad to read for 24 hours together. I’m so glad I got to do this with her and it was incredible to updated each other with our progress <3.

My TBR for the readathon was Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab- I ended up loving it.

I do wish I had set a bit more ambitious TBR for the day because I ended up finishing the book with 6-7 hours still left of the day.

There’s something about finishing a book in one sitting that’s so immersive and wonderful and I’m glad I chose Our Dark Duet for it because it just felt like the right book. Although, I wish I had This Savage Song too and read both the books together- it’s been a long time since I read it so it took me some time to feel adjusted to the sequel. Also, if you’re a fast or ambitious reader and plan to do a readathon then you know a duology is the right way to go.

Audrey and I updated our progress with the Readathon on Twitter under the hashtag #BloggerReadathon so I’ll just post some of them here as a wrap up.

So…yeah, that was downright fun. I did read a bit of The Problem With Forever by Jennifer Armentrout for the rest of the day but I wasn’t really feeling contemporary after urban fantasy, I guess. Maybe next time I’ll actually pick a dulogy lol.

Oh, by the way, there might very well be a next time so you can hit me up if you want to maybe read together for a readathon again!

Again, thanks Audrey for doing this with me! (She actually started reading according to my time zone so she must’ve been extra tired, guys :’) ).

What else can I say? Readers gonna READ READ READ READ READ (ah, nothing like Taylor Swift to get into the right mood forΒ  reading).

  1. I don’t think I’d be able to stay up for 24 hours but I really want to do a 24 hour readathon sometime and I’m thinking about taking part in Dewey’s 24 hours readathon which takes place in April I believe! I’ve never done a readathon of any kind but they seem like so much fun! I loved reading the twitter posts you added into this post!

  2. Hahaha thank you ❀. I’ve heard of Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon too. Maybe I’ll take part in it too. Anyway, I hope you enjoy your experience! I fell asleep for like 5 hours in between but still finished a book so I’m sure you’ll be fine if you don’t stay awake for all of 24 hours. πŸ˜€

  3. That was so much fun! I’d definitely do it again; it’s the perfect remedy for a slump! Yeah, it’s probably better to do this with a series you can just immerse yourself completely in the world!

    Also, I’m an emotional mess right now because I finished The Winner’s Curse 5 minutes ago and I don’t remember life before Arin. Like did it have a purpose, a meaning, or something?

    So, thank you for that hahah XD.

    1. Ooh, I would love to do it again too. πŸ’™β€
      Also, aaah, I’m so EXCITED to actually discuss the book with you. Doesn’t the end just DESTROY you?? And, no, I don’t believe my life had a purpose or meaning before Arin too. I can confirm that he’s a goddamn blessing in your lives. ❀
