#TBRtakedown Readathon, wrap up

I participated in the #TBRtakedown Readathon this week and it was a lot of fun. It was also the first Readathon I've ever done.

The Readathon was created by Shannon from leaninglights. Here's the link to her video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ix0n5x1DSI&feature=youtu.be

 

 

There were 5 challenges you could complete during the Readathon:

Challenge #1 A book that's been on your TBR shelf over a year: A.S. King - The Dust of a 100 Dogs.

I bought this book June last year. I've always wanted to read it, but I kept reading other books first. So I've finally read it and I loved it.

 

Challenge #2 An unread sequel sitting on your TBR shelf: Yuki Midorikawa - Natsume's Book of Friends volume 18.

This is my favourite manga and I got this volume in the mail this week. I had to read it immediately.

 

Challenge #3 A first book in a series on your TBR shelf: Leigh Bardugo - Shadow and Bone. 

I've had this book for a long time and I kind of lost my interest in it. But I'm happy I've read it, because I liked it more than I thought I would.

 

Challenge #4 An "out of your comfort zone" book on le TBR shelf: John Steinbeck - The Moon is Down.

I usually avoid books that are about the Second World War, but I really liked this one.

 

Challenge #5 A book from your most recent book haul: Astrid Lindgren - Pippi Longstocking.

I got this book in the end of May and I was really excited to read it, because I loved Pippi Longstocking as a child.

 

I never thought I would be able to read 5 books this week. Perhaps it was because all books were quite short and fast paced. But the biggest reason was that I really liked all the books I've read. I was pleasantly surprised by most of them.
