The BookTubeAThon is officially over, and I’m honestly proud with the amount of reading I accomplished. In 7 days, I was able to read 4 books! I’m almost sure that’s how many books I read during last year’s readathon, but I could be wrong. I probably would have finished all 7 books if I neglected all other things in my life. That’s why this BookTubeAThon is a challenge. It’s not meant to be so easy to read this many books in such a short amount of time. I would like to think that maybe one day I’ll be able to read 7 books in 7 days, but I’m not going to beat myself over it if I don’t.
During the readathon, I was able to read:
1. Nostalgia by M. G. Vassanji: 4/5 (This book was my coin toss book).
2. Ariel by Sylvia Plath: 5/5 (This book was my green book and wear a hat challenge).
3. A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf: 5/5
4. Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chboksy 5/5 (This was my movie adaption pick).
I was able to complete most of the challenges, but I definitely didn’t finish all of them. I did decide what book to read with the coin toss, but the second book in that coin toss hasn’t even been touched yet. Also, I wasn’t able to watch the adaptation of Perks of Being a Wallflower yet, which I will sometime this week. I have read the book and watched the movie before, so I don’t feel too bad about not completing this challenge. In regards to the other books I haven’t read, I’ll be adding them to my to-be-read pile for the month, so that’s why there’s not a TBR post for August.
Overall, I’m really happy with how the week progressed, and that I was able to read as many books as I did. I really hope that I’ll be able to continue this motivation to read throughout the rest of the month. I’ve been in a sort of reading slump in the past few months, and I really just want to take the time to read and unwind.
