I exceeded my own expectations! // Reading Rush Wrap Up

Hellooo and welcome to my blog.

After a week of nonstop reading, the Reading Rush has ended and not to toot my own thorn or anything but I did great.RR-full-deeplilac

In the last week I have completed 5 book and a sum total of 1779 pages. I’m pretty impressed with that. *pats self on back*.


Monday

I normally start Readathon’s bang on midnight and that was my original plan but instead I finished work and started drinking pints. I didn’t get in till 2am so reading even just a chapter was out the window. So was reading when I woke up like I wanted because I’m gonna admit I was slightly hungover and decided to sleep another hour.

Later that day though I did ended up completing Darkling by Brooklyn Ray for the challenge: Read the first book you touch.darkling

This might be cheating, I don’t know, but I had hoped to read and finish this before the Reading Rush even began but that didn’t happen. I’d only read the first chapter before Monday so I decided this could fill the prompt of “first book you touch” as it technically was the first e-book I clicked on that day.

I was in a reading mood on Monday because I also started The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes and read 201 pages. I considered just finishing this in it’s entirety because I could not put it down but it was late, I was really tired and I was also loving it so much that I kind of wanted to stretch it out another day.

Pages Read: 350 (ish)

My Reading Rush 2020 T.B.R

Hi, hello and howdy :))

Last year I failed the Reading Rush. This year I’m planning on failing it again because 7 books in 7 days is not possible for me and my bad habits of procrastination and being easily distracted.

This time around I have 4 books on my TBR that I’m hoping to read but looking at it now I don’t know how many I’ll actually get around to.

My dad has been away working for near on ten weeks now and he’s finally coming home on Wednesday which is great, I’m excited to see him, but it means we’ve got lots of plans cause he’s only home ten days so reading won’t be my top priority. Continue reading “My Reading Rush 2020 T.B.R”

#StayHomeReadingRush Wrap Up

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog!

stayhomeThe weekend happened. It went by fast but maybe that’s because I have no concept of time at this point. Fun.

Anyways the #StayHomeReadingRush happened this weekend too and I participated. It was a super last minute decision and I had homework to catch up on because even though I have nothing to do all day I’m still stuck in my procrastinating ways.

I had hoped to read three books this weekend and I finished two. I’m pretty happy with that. Sure it’s not the best but it was fun and I’m gonna wrap the weekend up and make it seem slightly more interesting then it actually was. Continue reading “#StayHomeReadingRush Wrap Up”

#StayHomeReadingRush TBR

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog.

I have decided to take part in the #Stay Home Reading Rush which runs from today, 16th April till the 19th. I’ve seen this floating around and I really wasn’t going to take part in it so this is a very last minute decision.

My third term of school started back up this week. I said I was going to be productive this term, make good of a bad situation by using the home-school aspect to get really good grades. I’m barely a week in and I’ve already procrastinated all my assignments until the last possible second so I don’t know how well I’m going to do in this mini readathon but I’m going to give it a try.

Read a book with a house on the cover – Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

I’m taking extreme liberties with this one. The Spanish edition of this book, the edition that I’m reading, has the New York skyline in the distant background … which has apartments … which I am classing as a house because I’ve already started it and want an excuse to finish it.

I mean I live in an apartment and I call it “my house” all the time so yes I’m cheating but it’s okay. Continue reading “#StayHomeReadingRush TBR”
