As many of you know we here at Tea and Titles just hosted a little readathon called Bookentine and now that it’s over, it is time to fill you in on how we both did.
I had planned to read three books during this week long readathon but I didn’t quite manage it. The week of Bookentine is also my birthday week so it can be a bit hard for me to manage my time between reading for the readathon and all my birthday celebrations and life in general.
However I did finish one full book in Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne and I really loved it. This book follows Evie as she tries to recover from her OCD and live a normal life. I loved the heavy focus on friendship in this book and Evie’s voice was really interesting to read from, I actually felt like I might be going a little bit mad reading it which goes to show how well Holly Bourne did at writing it.
I then started the Serpent King by Jeff Zentner and as you can see I’ve only gotten partway through it. I have not been immediately taken with this book and am not even sure if I am liking it that much if I am going, to be honest. I’ll keep with it because it does have some good qualities but at the moment it’s kind of mediocre.
I can’t really comment on A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard as I never got to it but I am still looking forward to reading it hopefully in the near future.
I actually have a GIF that sums up my experience with Bookentine this year that I’d like to share with you all before I talk about what I read.
So, you can probably guess that I did terribly. Out of my three book TBR, which you can see here, I only managed to read 237 of one book. That was it. Those 237 pages were all from Radio Silence by Alice Oseman. I’ve been in a super huge slump lately, and I just struggled to read. I’m just over halfway, but I’m hoping to finish and review it in the next few days. After that, I will be continuing on with Frankie as I had planned.
If you participated in bookentine please let us know how you did or link us to your wrap-up posts as we will love to see how you did.
