#ReadThemAllThon Update

pokemon-reading.gifAs I will not be making many blog posts for the next few weeks, other than reviews (probably), I thought that I should at least put up some updates about the first readathon which I am participating in….#ReadThemAllThon!

For info about the readathon, you can read my sign up post for it here.

sticker,375x360.u2So, thus far…I have had a bit of a late start because I was still reading Nevernight by Jay Kristoff (my review for which you can find here) when the readathon started. Once I was finished Nevernight, I was also experiencing quite an intense book hangover! I’m still not over it really, and I’m worried that it may have influenced my experience with Victoria Schwab’s This Savage Song, which is the first book I chose to read for the contest.

Anyway…I managed to finish This Savage Song, even though it took me longer than it should have, because of emotions and work and other things. But yay! I now have my Marsh Badge! And my Pichu has also evolved into Pikachu and is now at 241 CP!

I have now started on the 2nd book which I’ve selected for 51B0wt0bGFL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_#ReadThemAllThon, Ghostly Echoes by William Ritter, and I think that I should get through it pretty quickly. I read a preview for this book a few months back, and then the publisher granted my wish on NetGalley to read the full book! Yay! You can look forward to hearing my opinions on that book very soon!

tumblr_nnfzkzDz9k1tugqqno1_400As for This Savage Song, I will begin working on my review for it right after this post goes live. So you should be expecting the review to go up either today or early tomorrow! And then Cascade Badge here I come! Ghostly Echoes will likely make me bawl my eyes out, and I’m going camping for 3 days, but I’ll get it done!


Thanks for reading, and feel free to leave opinions and comments below! I’d love to know what you think about this readathon, or readathons in general! Or Pokémon even, or my choice of Pokémon choice (Pichu-Pikachu-Raichu) for this contest!

  1. Wow I am impressed with how many cp you’ve earned so far!! I’m up to 97 myself. Earned the Thunder Badge tonight and started working on the Cascade Badge and the Rainbow Badge.

    1. Yay! Congrats on the Thunder Badge! And 97 is good! And I got more CP from tweeting than actually reading haha. Oh and from evolving, and I also posted a review for the first book which I read. But kind of embarrassed that most of my CP is from tweets. Trying to fix that by reading lots now 😛 haha

  2. I really want to read both Nevernight and This Savage Song; what did you think?
    I’m not too much farther ahead of you… I’ve finished two books, but they were both fairly short and I haven’t even started the third! (I haven’t read anything today) IT’S TERRIBLE. I’M SO BEHIND.

  3. Oh, I’m so glad to hear that! Yikes, I hope I like it more than you did! 🙂
    Haha thanks! It turned out that my third book was SUPER short and quick, so I was able to read 50 pages last night and finish it this morning. 🙂
