Because I had a very crazy day Friday, I didn’t have the chance to post my Day 4 update for the reading rush, so I am combining day 4 and 5!
On day 4 of the reading rush I read 400 pages! I finished Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff and rated it 5 out of 5 stars! I loved it, and it was not at all what I was expecting. I am not the biggest fan of sc-fi, so I was truly blown away by how much I enjoyed this book. The twists and turns were so unexpected, and the writing style was fantastic to read. I really want to continue this series soon! (Especially after that ending!!) Reading Illuminae helped me to earn the badge for “read a book you meant to read last year.”
I started Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo on day 5, but it was a very busy day for me, so I was only able to read and 25 pages. What I did read of it seemed good, and I am excited to finish this. Shadow and Bone will help me earn the “read an author’s first book.”
My progress is slow. I have only finished two books, and there are only two remaining days in the readathon. I don’t know if it is possible for me to read 5 more books in the next 2 days, but I am going to try. Luckily a lot of my books can meet more than one challenge, so my goal is going to be to complete all the main challenges! If I’m lucky I will get the bonus challenge of reading seven books, but it’s unlikely. Hope you’re all doing better than me!! Thank you and Happy Reading 🖤
