Header Image (23)

So the AYearAThon actually finished a couple days ago now, but I haven’t been home. I didn’t read a tonne in the ReadAThon, but I’m happy with how much I did read!

So I only finished 1 book in this time but I finished 1 and started 2 others.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is the book that I finished.

I finished Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake, I read 183 pages of this book during the time frame of the ReadAThon

I started Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth, I got to 35% of this book and then put it down. I received an eGalley of this, so I don’t know exactly how many pages, I only know the percentage as that is what the kindle app shows. This book is so slow and it took me a couple days to get to 35% where I would usually finish 1/4 of a book in a day easily and because this book was taking forever, so I put it down to read something that I could actually read in this ReadAThon and I will pick it up after!

I also started Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. I was 203 pages in that book when it hit midnight on the 7th!

And that is all I read for the ReadAThon! If you participated then let me know how much you read!

May A YearAThon TBR & Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon Info

Header Image (10)

So I have 2 ReadAThons coming up  very soon. The Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon & the A Year A Thon. I won’t be making a specific TBR for the Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon as there is no challenges, so I will just read whatever I’m up to when it starts and read as much as I can.


I’m posting this TBR now rather than just before the ReadAThon starts because the Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon ends at 10pm on the 30th and the A YearAThon starts 2 hours later at midnight. I will also be writing my blog post for the 30th today which will be a Tag Sunday so that way I won’t have to worry about it on that day. In the 2 hours between Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon and the A YearAThon I will post my wrap up for Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon.

So the May A Year A Thon starts on the 1st and ends on the 7th. The monthly theme is Rereads and the challenge is to read books over 400 pages. I won’t be rereading any books as I want to concentrate on new books more than rereading books.

So onto the books on my TBR. This isn’t a specific TBR, it will more be options of books with 400+ pages that I own or have on eBook.

Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

CarveTheMark_Roth_EpicReads

Pages: 468

I have just received an email saying that I was approved to get a copy of Carve the Mark through NetGalley. So I will be starting this book next, I don’t know whether that will be before or during the A YearAThon.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Pages: 456

I have a copy of this book on Scribd.

A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

a-shadow-bright-and-burning-by-jessica-cluess

Pages: 416

I received this book in a The YA Chronicles Subscription box last year and have been meaning to read it ever since. It sounds really interesting and this ReadAThon might be the reason I finally get to it.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Nevernight-Royal-HB-front-White-title (1)

Pages: 429

I bought this ages ago and have been meaning to get to it but just haven’t got around to it yet! I also really want to read something that is written by only Jay Kristoff to see if I like her writing as in Illuminae & Gemina it is hard to tell.

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Caraval-Garber

Pages: 407

I have this and the next book coming in the mail from Book Depository so it will partly depend on whether they arrive in time. But this book just sounds so interesting and there is so much hype, I’m so excited to get to it!

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

HateUGive_10-10Snap (1)

Pages: 444

This sounds like such an important book to read at the moment. Granted being Australian this isn’t something that is directly affecting me, but I still really want to read it.


Well that are some of the books that are options for books over 400 pages that I could read from the ReadAThon. I will definitely be reading Carve The Mark after I finish Shadow and Bone. But it will depend on how long it takes me to read Shadow and Bone whether I will be reading it before or during the ReadAThon. If Caraval & The Hate U Give arrive in time they will most likely be the ones I’m most likely to pick up. If they don’t arrive in time then The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer & Nevernight will be highest on my list.
