AYearAThon – April (Wrap Up)

Yearathon

Now, You are going to notice that the page count for this month is looking a bit funny with .4 type things happening. This is because Invasion of the Tearling was an advance reader copy on my kindle so it didn’t have pages numbers, and I have had to work out what the percentage of the book would be in page numbers from goodreads.

Well I didn’t beet my goal, I really didn’t think I was going to be working six days a week. I really need to work that rubbish out because its just not going to work. But despite the fact I didn’t finish my four book target, I am still happy with what I did. The books I finished and started, most of them are ones that have been on my list for ages, and I am finally completed their pages.

AYearAThon is a read a thon that happens each month throughout the year with different themes. You can find the goodreads group here.

Since I don’t know what my work schedule and personal life is going to be like between the 6th-12th, I am going to keep my list small again. Better to surpass your goal than to not complete it. There doesn’t seem to be a specific time in which this starts, I am starting the clock at midnight my time. This months theme is:

Fantasy

I am super excited about this theme, one of my favourite genres and a good time to cross of some things I have been dying to read for ages.

AYearAThon – March

Yearathon

AYearAThon is a read a thon that happens each month throughout the year with different themes. You can find the goodreads group here.

This year I am starting with the March theme because there was no way January was going to happen when I was moving across the country, and the February theme didn’t really interest me that much, so March it is. There doesn’t seem to be a specific time in which this starts, I am starting the clock at midnight my time. This months theme is:

Bench Warmers

For those who might not understand, that means that any books that has been sitting on my shelf for awhile. Even though I am not working at the moment and have a pretty open schedule, I am still going to try and keep my goals simple since I am still dealing with hassles with my new house.

VA18 VA19 VA Ice blue Sin VA Fleeting Dreams

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now I am cheating a little bit because 19 and Fleeting Dreams I got this month, but I want to read the other two and I might as well finish them all off while I am at it. Since they are short I should be able to move onto some other things as well hopefully.

AYearAThon – November (Day 5)

ayearathonimage

I didn’t actually feel like reading anything today, so I am kind of amazed that I read anything at all. Well, listened really. I have been doing an audio book for The Book of Lost Things so that I could do other things at the same time. Anyway, here is what has been achieved so far:

Day 1

Pages Read: 516

Books Finished:

  1. Glitches by Marissa Meyer
  2. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Books Started: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Day 2

Pages Read: 382

Books Started: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Day 3

Pages Read: 361

Books Finished:

  1. Cress by Marissa Meyer
  2. The Little Android by Marissa Meyer
  3. The Queen’s Army by Marissa Meyer

Books Started: Splintered by A.G. Howard

Day 4

Pages Read: 308

Books Started: The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly

Books Read: Splintered by A.G. Howard

Day 5

Pages Read: 301

Books Read: Splintered by A.G. Howard

Books Finished: The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly

 

I adored The Book of Lost Things. Because it was in audio form though I found that I both struggled and loved the format. While I would be trying to do things I would be listening to the book and next thing I know, I would wake out of my trance the story had put me in and realise that I stopped doing whatever it was I was doing ages ago and have just been listening. Then other times I found that because it was audio that I got distracted from it easily and missed section. Weird.

I think the reason for my slump is because of Splintered though. I just really don’t care about it. My OCD side is telling me just to push through, I just have just over three and half hours left until I am done with it. We shall see I guess. I could finish it tomorrow but it might be better to start something else.

If any of you are taking part link me your updates so I can see :)

AYearAThon – November (Days 1-4)

ayearathonimage

I have to say I feel like I am on a good run of reading, it has been so long since I could put so much time to reading! Feels wonderful ^_^ Even though I have taken many breaks, long one since I am trying to move across the country at the same time, I still feel good about everything. Here is what I have done over the last three days:

Day 1

Pages Read: 516

Books Finished:

  1. Glitches by Marissa Meyer
  2. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Books Started: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Day 2

Pages Read: 382

Books Finished: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Books Started: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Day 3

Pages Read: 361

Books Finished:

  1. Cress by Marissa Meyer
  2. The Little Android by Marissa Meyer
  3. The Queen’s Army by Marissa Meyer

Books Started: Splintered by A.G. Howard

Day 4

Pages Read: 308

Books Started: The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly

Books Read: Splintered by A.G. Howard

After I finished what was out of the Lunar Chronicles books I had to go in search of something else and it took forever! I started Splintered but I really wasn’t feeling it so I picked up The Book of Lost Things and I am totally digging it! It was an audio book though because I am trying to get things done, so I probably didn’t get through as much as I would have if I was reading it. My page count seems to be getting lower and lower! I will fix that on the weekend though. During the week I feel like I have to do things while the rest of the world is functioning.

Well I am quite pleased with what I accomplished during this week. I read double what I thought I would be able to read. Audio books seems to work when I am busy. I liked most these books quite a lot but I will be taking a break from them because I just can’t handle doing anymore in a row.

I don’t think I will participating in the next months topic, and maybe the one after that, so don’t expect anything from me for this then.
