Hour 24 done – good night


Good night sweet bookish friends!

This is a Dewey’s readathon wrap. I’m off to bed. I was actually more tired this time than any other previous readathons. In fact, I fell asleep with the book in hand during hour 22, and that was after I already took a 90 minute nap earlier.

Overall, I’m quite happy with my page number and book count though, especially when considering I had a much bigger social media presence this time. I did quite love co-hosting the readathon on Dewey’s blog and Twitter account. Y’all are some tweeting machines! I was a bit worried about the posts as well but talking about bookmarks and finished books turned out to be productive.

I didn’t take many pictures during the readathon this time. In fact, here are really the only two:

As planned I started off with Six of Crows and boy oh boy was that book magnificent! The world building was excellent and I really got into the characters. And that cliffhanger at the end. Ooooof! I cannot wait to read the sequel.

After that, I read Milk and Honey. That was a very unexpectedly emotional read for me. It truly showed me how powerful words can be. I’m definitely going to reference these poems a lot in the future. They were just perfection.

Neil Gaiman of course didn’t disappoint! The Doll’s House was everything I wanted it to be: weird, confusing, creepy, dream-like, manic, and full of imagination. The illustrations enhanced the storyline tremendously but the letter fonts are what took this graphic novel to the next level. It was a visual feast!

My last book was Salem’s Lot, which I didn’t finish but made pretty good progress in. I’ve had this book on my TBR for forever and I’m so happy I finally got around to starting it. Plus it’s about vampires. I loooooves me some bloodsuckers!

Books finished: 3

Books perused: 4

Pages read: 1052

Watch out for my official wrap-up post later today. Data!!!!!
