24 hours of reading is completed! Even with all the interruptions of life I still managed to read 789 pages off four books. Feeling beyond accomplished even though I didn’t think it was going to be possible.
In the first half, I managed to complete Purple Orchids and The Neon Lawyer. The neon lawyer wasnt something I was very much interested in, it dragged a lot and the plot was a bit typical. It isn’t a recommended read but if you do manage to snag it for free with the audio then go for it.
Purple Orchids had so many steamy scenes and it kept me very much interested because just when you thought you had it figured out, something else would happen and throw you for a crazy loop. Can you believe it was a romance novel? Yup, my reading a romance novel is beyond rare, like finding a four leaf clover.
Now as the readathon was winding down, I did snag in about 3 hours of sleep that I needed oh so badly. I did wake up and began to read Good as Gone by Amy Gentry which started off really good and I am hoping to continue reading it. Who doesn’t like a good kidnapping, survival, thriller book?
Out of all the books I read during the readathon Purple Orchids was my favorite. I am shocked that I enjoyed a romance novel because I tend to steer clear of those but it was nice to step out of my comfort zone which is what I had intended to do for this readathon.
I am so excited for the next one in October and even joined another group that holds monthly readathons! I think I have rediscovered my inner bookworm.
Which book did you enjoy reading during the readathon? If you didn’t participate, will you consider joining the dewey’s 24 hour readathon in october?
