Hello! Over the Easter weekend, I took part in the Easter Readathon – thanks to Kate @ Reading Through Infinity for hosting. The Easter Readathon ran from Friday 2nd April to Monday 5th April.
I completely, and utterly failed. One day I will learn that I hate TBRs, and I can’t stick to them. I am a mood reader through and through. You can check out my TBR: here. I didn’t end up sticking to the prompts at all, apart from the prompt that suggested to read a book with 250 or less pages.
Every Heart a Doorway and Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire
I read the first two books in The Wayward Children series, because I realised I had forgotten a lot about them, and I really want to catch up with the rest of the series. I have hated on Every Heart a Doorway for a while now, but this reread I actually enjoyed it. I think when I read it at first, I was not in a fantasy mood and in a reading slump. I am definitely glad I gave it another go because I did enjoy it more, however it is still the weakest in the series from what I have read so far which is only book three. Scribd blocked me from reading the other ones in the series that weekend but if it hadn’t, I probably would have read a couple more in the series that weekend.
A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown
Next, I read A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown. I was not expecting to love this book as much as I did. I went in with 0 expectations and was blown away by the characters, the plot, the writing style – everything! I started the audiobook as I was cooking dinner and thought it would be one that I continued throughout the week, but once I started I couldn’t stop. I had to force myself to put it down so that I could sleep, but when I woke up the first thing I did was reach for this book. I loved it and I need the sequel now.
So, I am not counting this next book, but I did want to mention it. I read 90% of Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo over the weekend and then finished it first thing on Tuesday, so technically it doesn’t count towards the readathon, but I did read the majority of it as part of the readathon.
So that is another year of not meeting my Easter Readathon TBR. I didn’t read a single book off of my TBR, but I did enjoy the ones that I did read, so it is a win in my books! It is also another year that Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston has been left on the TBR unread – one day I will get to it!
Did you take part? If you did, how did you do?
