This past week was a impromptu Bout of Books reading-in-place readathon. There is another one in May that’s been planned and goes all out. Amanda and Kelly do such a good job planning those so for them to go out of their way to do another one is fantastic. This was a super chill one with just Twitter sprints.
My original plan was to finish The Magicians and read The Magician King, Kill Creek and You Are Not Alone in their entirety (basically finish off my required OWLs). I failed kind of miserably. I participated in a third of the Twitter sprints and had a decent week, I just didn’t read as much as I thought and I didn’t start You Are Not Alone.
The Magicians/ The Magician King
I read these a couple years ago and enjoyed them so much. I ended up buying copies so I could reread and then proceeded to listen to them. But they’ll probably get read again. I liked these even more the second time around. These are basically a darker fantasy that is Narnia and Harry Potter combined. I also listened to the first chapter of the third book.
I think part of the reason I only got halfway through this book during the readathon is because it starts of slow. It still is kind of slow and I’m halfway through. I have no idea what’s going to happen the second half. It does the creepy parts well, you’re not sure what’s real and what’s their imagination which is kind of weird but pretty cool.
In total I’ve read/ listened to about 700 total pages. Which is more than it felt. I also did a puzzle in it’s entirety and played many video games and did a coding project and some lessons so it was a productive week regardless.
Their next readathon is May 11-17 if anyone wants to join in!
