Impromptu Read-a-thon End Post!


So, I don’t know if you read it, but yesterday I posted about an Impromptu read-a-thon hosted by Amber at Down the Rabbit Hole that I was taking part in. I posted my goals, which were:

  •         To finish the 190 pages I had left of Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts.
  •         To read ALL of Vanish by Sophie Jordan
  •        To make a dent in Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick (At least 50 pages)


Well, I’m happy to say, I completed all three of my goals! I started reading at 2 yesterday, and read non-stop (when I wasn’t eating or sleeping…) until 2 today. So, here’s what I managed to read:

  •        190 pages of Dark Inside
  •        100% of Vanish (304 pages)
  •        50% of Ashes (225 pages)


So, using Goodreads page counts, I’ve totalled that up to 719 pages! And in the 24 hours that I took part, I managed to read for 10 hours, 53 minutes. Which is 653 minutes, so I think I did pretty well, as that’s just over a page a minute :)

I’d like to thank Amber for hosting this awesome read-a-thon, and it made a great way to end the week for me :) It was great fun and it was my first read-a-thon, and I don’t think it will be my last!

  2. Geezus this sounds so intense! Like Slowest Bookworm, I read quite languidly. I've always been astounded by fast readers!

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)

Book Review: The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Series: Standalone
Pages: 213
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Date of Publication: 30th August 2012 (reprint)
Source: Publisher*
Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a story about what it’s like to travel that strange course through the uncharted territory of high school. the world of first dates, family dramas, and new friends. of sex, drugs, and the rocky horror picture show. of those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up.
My Thoughts:
So many people have been telling me to read Perks for about a year now, and with the movie coming up soon, I thought it was finally time. I mean, it looked quite good, and you have to read the book before the film, right?! Anyway, I decided I would read it on holiday when I had nothing else to do so I could read it all at once, and as it's really not very long this was pretty easy. While it didn't quite live up to my (probably too high) expectations…

Book Review: Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

Title: Moxie Author: Jennifer Mathieu
Series: n/a
Pages: 340
Publisher: Hodder Children's Books
Date of Publication: 21st September 2017
Source: borrowed from Reading to Recover
Synopsis from Goodreads:
It's time to fight like a girl!

Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her high school teachers who think the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes, hallway harassment and gross comments from guys during class. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.

Viv's mum was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Grrrl in the '90s, and now Viv takes a page from her mother's past and creates Moxie, a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She's just blowing off steam, but other girls respond and spread the Moxie message. As Viv forges friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she realises that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.
