FemPowerAThon Wrap Up

So this readathon was super fun and definitely helped by their enthusiastic Twitter account. My TBR is here where I have six books to fill the eight challenges.

I was able to fill all my challenges in the end, thanks to The Perilous Life of Jade Yeo have a secondary character be a woman with depression so challenge #5 was ticked off. I didn’t finish The Alchemists of Loom, though I did start it, but The Terracotta Bride was about a lesbian woman so all the challenges were still ticked off. I also read Ida which was about a woman in a relationship with a genderqueer character, Daisy, which also fulfilled the terms of the challenge.

Favourite Book of the Challenge: The Perilous Life of Jade Yeo. Funny, with a romance that made me smile. The only thing I disliked about it was how short it was!

Least Favourite Book of the Challenge: The Terracotta Bride. The novella was well-written but it was too short and not in a good way like Cho’s other book. It had an interesting idea but it could be expanded on, plus the ending was fairly depressing.

I was very glad I did this readathon, it made me read books that had been on my TBR list for a while and they were all thoroughly enjoyable. I’m liking The Alchemists of Loom as well.

Top Ten Books I’ve Read In One Sitting

Top Ten Tuesday is a blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This time I chose the Top Ten Books I’ve Read in One Sitting. Although it was more ‘ten books I remembered reading in one sitting’ which was surprisingly harder than I thought it would be. A lot of books would have probably been ‘read it in one sitting’ if life hadn’t kept getting in the way as it has a habit of doing.

February Wrap Up (2017)

In terms of numbers of books I read, February was a good month for it. In terms of books I enjoyed, February wasn’t such a good month for me, which was a shame. I did get to some of my books on my Mount TBR list (as in I bought them before 1st January 2017) and they were ones I have been meaning to read for a while. I took part in two readathons this month

I took part in two readathons this month Because Dragons Readathon and TimeHopAThon which were unfortunately at the same time but I really enjoyed them both and would definitely consider doing them in future (maybe with more overlap next time).
