Readathon of Kings Wrap Up

Readathon of Kings

This readathon was for the last weekend of April (27th-30th April) for the Dutch holiday, King’s Day. My TBR is here.

Challenges:
1) Read a book with Orange OR red-white-blue on the cover
2) Read a book by a Dutch author
3) Read a book involving Royalty
4) Read a book you bought because it was cheap

I actually completed my TBR! I read a lot of other books because I was sick and didn’t do anything else apart from read but I finished reading Air Awakens and Vicious. With these books, I completed three out of four challenges.

Air Awakens was definitely not as good as I was hoping it to be. My review is here but basically, the bad parts of the book were so bad for me that they overshadowed the good parts.

Vicious, on the other hand, I loved. My review is here. I think I’m going to get a paperback copy as soon as I’m back in the UK, that’s how much I loved this book.

This was a really fun readathon and I’m glad I did it, especially since I managed to read two books that had been on my TBR for a while.

As much as I love readathons such as Diverseathon and Borrowathon, I do like readathons that are new and have a different theme around them. Readathon of Kings is a Dutch-themed readathon starting on their King’s Day (27th April) and ending on the last day of April (30th April). The Twitter account is here. Plus the challenges are interesting as well, so I thought I would wind down from Camp Nanowrimo by doing a small readathon.

Challenges:
1) Read a book with Orange OR red-white-blue on the cover
2) Read a book by a Dutch author
3) Read a book involving Royalty
4) Read a book you bought because it was cheap

As always, I’m going to try and focus on books I already own and books that are relatively short as the readathon will only be three days long.
