June CramAThon 2018 Wrap Up

Header Image (11)

So the CramAThon finished last night as I am soo happy with how much I read! I completed all 7 challenges as well as partly listened to 2 other audiobooks & partly read another book. I’ll just tell you here what those books were as they weren’t actually for the CramAThon.
Also here is my reading vlog for the full week of CramAThon

During the week I was listening to & finished Harry Potter & the Philosopher’s Stone. I didn’t record what the starting point was for this week but it was fairly early into the book & I completed it during this week. I also read 27 more pages of King of Ashes by Raymond E. Feist which is a book I’m slowly making my way through. Lastly, I listened to 188 pages of The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken on audiobook.

Scallywagathon Wrap Up

Header Image (18)

So the Scallywagathon finished yesterday and I completely didn’t realise. For some reason, I was thinking that it was finishing today! Anyway, luckily I finished the last 2 books for the challenges yesterday and had started another book today that didn’t go towards the challenges, it was just an extra.



Here is the map

I was originally going to read the eBook of this but I wasn’t finding it that interesting, so I decided to give the audiobook ago. I still didn’t love the book, but it was easier to get through using the audiobook than physically reading it.

September 2017 Duodecathon Wrap Up

Copy of Review Banner (7)

So I didn’t read too much during the Duodecathon this time but I completed 1 challenge, so I’m happy with that. On the weekend I was helping my dad a fair bit and then went out on Saturday night too and then went to bed pretty early on Sunday as I only got 2 and a half hours sleep on Saturday, so I did absolutely no reading on the weekend. So this is what I read for the first 5 days of the ReadAthon.

AYearAThon May Wrap-Up

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!

Blog Titles (22)

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.

HateUGive_10-10Snap

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!

Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon Wrap Up

Header Image (12)

So the Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon has finished and I honestly didn’t do that great in this ReadAThon! I knew that I wouldn’t get TONNES read as I knew I would have to sleep and work. When I first decided I was going to do this ReadAThon I didn’t know that I was going to be working, so I planned on read all day today but that didn’t happen.

Blog Titles (24)

I started reading last night at 10:00pm, which was when the ReadAThon started in Aus. I went to sleep at about 1am and listened to an audiobook until I fell asleep.. I couldn’t get to sleep straightaway so I actually got an hour and a half of listening done. I woke up at 8 and worked from 9 till 1:30 and then had to come home and have something to eat and do some jobs. I then read for about 2 hours and then had to do some more jobs and cook dinner and then I watched My Kitchen Rules as it is the Grand Finale and I had forgotten it was on tonight till about half an hour before it started. I thought it was tomorrow night for some reason. So I watched it instead of reading as I’m not missing the grand finale after watching every damn episode of the season haha. So this wasn’t the best ReadAThon for me.


Blog Titles (22)

I read 223 pages of Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

Blog Titles (23)

I listened to about an hour and a half of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

I don’t know the exact time as when listening to audiobooks before bed I put it on a sleep timer of 15 minutes and then reset it if I’m still awake. That way if I fall asleep then it will be easy to go back a couple minute to what I remember.. So I listened to somewhere between 1hr 15min to 1hr 30min.

Well that is all for this wrap up. Hopefully I will have a better time with the AYearAThon which starts at midnight tonight! Atleast it goes for a week, so I can get more read in that time haha.
