Scallywagathon Wrap Up

Header Image (3)

Okay, so it has been a few days since Scallywagathon and I’m finally doing my wrap up! Here is what I read!

Blog titles

So outside of the challenges, I also finished a book & started another before & after reading the challenge books. I also started and DNFd a book. So I will mention them first.

I started the audiobook for Winter before the ReadAThon and finished it during.

After finishing the 4 ReadAThon challenges I started the audiobook for Daughter of the Siren Queen. I didn’t finish it during the ReadAThon though.

This is the book that I started and DNFd. This was originally meant to be for the first challenge. I started this book, found it utterly boring and beyond confusing and DNFd at 16%. As I had only read a small amount of the book I couldn’t count it for a completed challenge. So I choose a different book for that.

Now onto the ReadAThon challenges!

The path I followed was

5 > 8 > A > 9

5: CALM BEFORE THE STORM – THE FIRST IN A SERIES

This is the first book in the Hercule Poirot series by Agatha Christie. This was the book I substituted in after DNFing A Shot in the Dark.

8: YO HO HO! – BOOK THAT STARTS WITH ‘RRRRRR’

A: MAROONED: STANDALONE

9: BLOW DOWN THE MAN – A BOOK BY A WOMAN AUTHOR

After reading/DNFing A Shot in the Dark it put me in a bit of a slump and I didn’t want to pick up anything. So I swapped out the book I was originally going to read The Theft and the Miracle for a random audiobook that I already had on Scribd. This is the one I chose.

ScallyWagAThon TBR

Header Image (12).jpg

Okay, so I am utterly fucking crazy! This will be ReadAThon number 4 in November. You can find my #HouseCupReadingChallenge TBR HERE & Read-A-Thin HERE if you wanted to know about those. My TBR for Duodecathon will be up closer to the dates of it.

Okay, so as this was a late announcement and it didn’t make it onto my November Reading Guide till about half an hour ago I am going to put all the info below. I’ll just copy and paste it straight from my guide! If you already know then just skip the the ‘My TBR’ header.

Okay, so this is a really fun looking ReadAThon and I’m thinking about adding it into my crazy November!!

This ReadAThon starts at midnight on the 5th of November & ends at 11:59 on the 11th of November. There is alsoa Pirates of the Caribbean WatchALong happening from the 12th to the 18th.

You can watch Ali’s video HERE for a whole in depth desrciption of the ReadAThon along with an example TBR but I am going to try and explain it!

Firstly, the map!

*This was taken from the link in Ali’s video.*

Okay, so how this map works is firstly you pick a number between 1 & 5. Once you pick your starting point you follow the corresponding coloured line to the next challenge. Most of them have more than one option you can choose from. Then when you get to your first stop you then follow that number or letter’s correspoding coloured line to the next challenge until you get to the treasure chest. All of the tracks you take will have 4 challenges but if you finish those 4 in the week you are welcome to continue onto any of the other challenges you wish.
So, here is an example of how to navigate the map. I am going to start at 1, from there I will follow the dark purple line to 6, from there I will follow the orange line to A and then from A I will follow the dark blue line to 9 and then to the treasure! Hopefully that makes sense.

When you complete the 4 challenges you can enter your email in the link on Ali’s video to get some free printables from Ali!

Okay, next is the Pirates of the Caribbean WatchALong. Here is a calendar that can be downloaded from the link in Ali’s video. It has the dates on the sides for each of the movie WatchALongs. However follow Ali on Twitter as she will be announcing closer to the date the times that they will be watching each movie.
