Today’s post is just a summary of what I did/read for Dewey’s 24-hr Readathon. First of all, I am very proud of myself for doing the readathon at all; I haven’t been able to do the past few readathons both because I work during them and also because I put so much pressure on myself that I have to do them perfectly otherwise they’re not worth doing. I didn’t stay up the full 24 hours as I intended to do, but I did stay up pretty late and read a lot, which is really the point of the readathon.
Here’s what I read:
I also started LADY’S GUIDE, which I am enjoying thus far even though it is very different from GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE. Also, I really want to cuddle Percy and Monty, please.
I did try to start PRIDE by Ibi Zoboi, however, I was not a huge fan of it. The writing was good and different, but I wasn’t feeling the romance and the protagonist hating the Darcy character felt very forced and not natural, so I wasn’t feeling it and decided to DNF it for now.
Anyway…overall, I had a successful readathon. I didn’t pressure myself as much to do it perfectly, let myself take a nap, and read two books. Most importantly, I had FUN, which is also another huge point of the readathon. I haven’t been having much fun in my life lately because I don’t have the time or energy (okay, mostly the energy; I could make time if I had the energy to do so), and doing it reminded me that I like sitting around reading and watching cute movies, and a night of staying up late won’t kill my sleep schedule or my work abilities.
Did you participate in the readathon? How did you do?
