I saw on Twitter about a week ago that Zoe Herdt (readbyzoe) was hosting a 24 hour readathon and thought I should participate. I have never done a readathon before and was pretty excited to see one happening so soon. I finished the readathon yesterday, so read on to find out how it went!
There were a few other booktubers participating too.
My TBR consisted of three books, which was ambitious considering Truly Madly Guilty is so long.
Timeline of Day
I woke up and started reading Truly Madly Guilty. I’m on page 98.
I had a 20 minute break to have breakfast and do a few other things. I had a reading buddy for most of the morning.
Lunchtime! I was really hungry so I had it early, and luckily it was leftovers so I didn’t need to make anything.
Back to reading. Currently on page 182. No one in my family has noticed I’m doing a readathon.
I’m on page 241, which is about halfway. The novel is 509 pages so I don’t even think I’ll be able to finish it today!
I took about an hour’s break to do a few things, but I’m continuing reading now. I think I’ll stick with reading Truly Madly Guilty because I want to know what the twist is.
After I had dinner, I read some more. I’m now on page 384. I’m super unimpressed with the twist, it’s not very interesting. It’s still a good read though, and last year it won the 2016 Goodreads fiction award.
I really want to finish the Netflix show Gypsy, so I’m going to do that now. It’s really good; I only have one and a half episodes to go.
I just finished the Gypsy show and are they serious with that cliffhanger ending… Oh well, back to reading.
I finished Truly Madly Guilty! Finally! I’m so tired – reading all day definitely made me very sleepy. I would rate it about 3.5/5 stars. The overall twist was not very interesting, but it was still a gripping read.
Total pages read: 411
Hours spent reading: 11
Pages per hour: 37
Overall, I thought it would be much more difficult! I was pretty engrossed in the story, but I wish I was more into the book length-wise so that I could have started another one.
Thanks for reading,
