Wrap-Up: BookTube-A-Thon Read-A-Thon!

The BookTubeAThon ended yesterday. It was a week long challenge hosted by Raeleen from padfootandprongs07 and Ariel from ArielBisset on YouTube. They had a twittter account and the whole week they had reading sprints thats had some fun challenges. I didn't get to participate in any of those sprint challenges  because well I didn't read that much.

I updated my progress through instagram for the first 5 days. I was going at a fine speed for the first four days at the fifth I started trailing with my reading speed. I read a little on Saturday and Sunday but not too much to actually finish a book. I failed to read even a dingle book from my weekend TBR. 

Firstly, I had driving lessons this whole week and I had to get up like at 8 in the morning. After the lessons I would get home and I had to sleep to energize myself. Then, I would do some reading or not. Anyway, the first 5 days went like this.


I only heard the audiobook for The Raven Boys. I completed it on day 2 along with starting The Hobbit. On Day 3, I finished Hobbit and began Rise and The Great Gatsby. On Day 4 , I started The Lost Symbol -read a little of Rise. On Day 5, I started two more books: The Art of War and continued with Carter Finally Gets It audiobook that I had begun listening to before the readathon. So, I didn't finsh any of these books. On Day 6, I watched a korean show all day with only reading a few pages of The Lost Symbol. On Day 7, I did the same with The Great Gatsby and The Lost Symbol (again). It was like I didn't want to read but you know I did want to read I was just really tired. 

I am really down about the fact that we had to read more than we normally do right but withme it was the opposite. I didn't even read like I normally do. I read more usually than I did this week. So, I dunno what went down. 

I finished two challenges though; the 'audiobook' and the 'been forever on your shelf' book. Happy about that. There were 7 challenges and the one I liked the most was the audiobook one. This was my first time listening to an audiobook. I had so much fun. I am into audiobooks now. LOL. I never thought I would like them. I would usually listen to it before dinner or going to sleep. 

The books I completed:
The Raven Boys (audiobook)- Will Patton did such a wonderful job with this. I absolutley enjoyed listening to this intruguing story. I will be reviewing this fully at the end of the month or whenever but I will be reviewing it.

The Hobbit- I liked this book but I dunno I think I liked watching the movie more. I didn't really feel this book. Like I don't feel like reading the LOTR trilogy you know- the movies are enough. And really they have done justice to the books so there is no need to read the books. D: I wont be revieing this book. I will just elaborate alittle moe in the July wrapup post.

The books I started but didn't finish:
The Lost Symbol- This was for the re-read. 
Rise- For the trilogy
The Great Gatsby- For the classic. I dunno why I dind't read this- like its only a 180 pages. 
Carter Finally Gets It- Not originally for the readathon but as I was in the mood for an audiobook and this books is hillarious. I really like the narrator.
The Art of War- Just cos. It is a beautiful book. I love the illustrations in it. I never wanted to read this book but I dunno wanted to give it a try and picked it up. 

So, anyway, I must have read about a 1000 pages only- a dozen pages over or so. And I am sad more because I could have easily crossed my desired pagecount that was a 2100 pages.

Learned a lot from this ReadAThon- I think I know now how to handle such challenges.

My favorites:
Favortie Book: The Raven Boys
Favorite Challenge: Audiobook
Favorite Sprint Challenge: Mad Lib and 5-Word Summary

Looking forward to next year's BookTubeAThon!!!
