Empty Shelfie Wrap Up

Empty Shelfie Book Club

There were three books on my Empty Shelfie TBR and I read one of them. However, I did read six physical books which I already owned on my shelf and several ebooks as well.

  • A book that has been on your TBR shelf for a while

The 39 Steps
The 39 Steps has been on my shelf since I was a child and yet I had never read it. Then I went to see the play with a friend of mine and it pushed me to actually read the book. I wasn’t impessed.

  • A book that is set in or written in the 1990s

This challenge was a lot harder than I thought it would be, considering a lot of the books on my shelf set or written in the 1990s I have already read. I did reread Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone which is both written and set in the 1990s but I didn’t read any new books.

  • A book featuring a monarchy

And I Darken (The Conqueror's Saga, #1)
And I Darken was actually on my TBR, but I did read a lot of other books this month which contained royalty (Wonder Woman: Warbringer, Red Queen and Queen of the Tearling). I really enjoyed And I Darken, the book was really fast-paced for me and I can definitely see myself continuing with the series.

The trouble is with month long readathons is that I forget I’m doing them, but I enjoyed this one nonetheless, especially the different challenges. Did any of you guys take part in this readathon? How did you do? Let me know in the comments!
