Last week, from February 7th-14th, I participated in the Rainbowthon. I did post a TBR for this wrap up, so check that out to see what I was planning on reading. Now I know when you look at the description of day one you might want to click away, but don’t worry. That is the only one that is really long, the rest are short. Also excuse my picture because I lent Illuminae out already and I only have the dust jacket. Anyway let’s get to the wrap-up.
Day 1- I started off first day of the read-a-thon in an okay way. I had to get up warly in order to help with my school’s talent show auditions but when I got there I found out that the arrival time was pushed back. Instead of sleeping, which was really tempting, I read a good amount of my first book. As the auditions started I was able to read a couple of pages here and there between each act. When I got home my reading plans started to fall apart. As soon as I got home, which was in the early afternoon, I slept for four hours. During that whole time I could have finished the book I was reading. I did read later on that night but I didn’t finish any books.
- 440 pages Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Day 2- The next day I had school. I wasn’t able to read when I was there but I was able to read when I got. It was a much less dramatic day than the first.
- 159 pages Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (Finished)
- 48 pages of The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
Total- 647 pages
Day 3- The next day was another busy school day which required all of my attention. Again I read some at home.
- 50 page of The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
Day 4- This is the day that the actual talent show happened and I was at school from 7:30 am to 8:30 pm, that being said I was not productive.
Day 5- After school on this day I decided to push to read more than I had at least the two days before, I did succeed in that.
- 80 pages of The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
Total- 759 pages
Day 6- So this was a very good day for reading because right after school I was taking a flight to the beach. Even though it was only a hour flight I read at every opportunity I was given.
- 82 pages of The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
Total- 841 pages
Day 7- This was another great day for reading, I wasn’t doing much and made sure to bring my book with me everywhere.
- 192 pages of The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan (Finish)
Total- 1033 pages
Day 8- So I found out that a great time to read is while waiting in line for rides at Disney. Yeah, that is how I read all day on this day and I find it kind of funny.
- 159 pages of The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz (Finish)
Total- 1192 pages
So even though I only read half of my TBR I am pretty proud of what I accomplished. The Royal We was a slower read and definitely not a read-a-thon book but I was reading it for a book club read-a-long so I had to finish it. I hope you enjoyed this update and I would love to know what you read if you participated. Follow me on goodreads and Instagram to see what I am reading (and get sneak peaks on how I am doing on read-a-thons). Thank you for so much for reading this.
