Well firstly I have to mention my most favourite bookish friend aka Fabulous Book Fiend aka Catriona. She gave me the push I needed to get involved with this readathon and what a week it was. I didn’t get involved in chats as I literally either missed them or couldn’t get the timings and I didn’t really do the challenges.
However, I did take part in a few reading sprints and I spoke to more bookish people over on Twitter which is always fun. Although for once bookish chat did not see me adding to my ever expanding TBR which was a plus. As much as I love adding more books it then makes choosing what to read harder again. I’ve been trying to get more of the new releases read and reviewed but there is always so much that I still hope to read. The readathon really did help with that.
So how did I do? I hear you say…
I completed 5 books 🙂 two ebooks one physical book and two audios.
Yesterday I had said for the final day I wanted to finish my audiobook which I did and I started a new audiobook although I didn’t listen to much as I struggled a little with the narration so I relistened and as it stands I’m listening determined to not give up just yet. It’s been a while since I’ve been in Nicholas Sparks world.
I’m intrigued by the description so far but I’m still not clear on where this story is heading…
I also managed to read a decent amount of a book that I should have read ages ago. I recently started re-reading it and I managed a good five and a half chapters. If I hadn’t got a bit of a headache I reckon I could have finished this yesterday. The book in question is a heart wrenching non fiction read about bowel Cancer.
Now for a bunch of links…my original Bout of Books sign up link can be read Here.
My first finished book of Bout of Books was Susan Gee’s second novel Love Me To Death my thoughts are Here.
I’m not sure I wrote enough updates but here is the first one day update and hopes for day two can be read Here.
The next update can be read Here.
And once again Here.
The Minute I Saw You I read in its entirety and you can read my thoughts Here.
During this week I also posted two new features that I’m hoping to continue on the blog the first was my weekly update which you can read Here I really enjoyed doing this and I’m still open to what you would like to see in my weekly update…
I also wrote about my library app Libby and what I have downloaded and what I have on hold you can read that Here.
So that was my bookish week…this week is set to be a bit of a scorcher here in London and as I type I’m sat in the garden listening to Nicholas Sparks as I say I probably wouldn’t recommend this narrator but I’m glad I’m stubbornly getting to grips with it.
