BookTube-A-Thon 2017 Wrap Up

Oh the mighty tale of how I ended doing just as miserably as last year!

Well, I guess a thousand pages in not miserably, but I was really hoping to at least finish five books, but that didn’t happen. I also stopped participating in the sprints halfway through the week. Alas. But there’s always next year!


Day 1

I read the second half of Clockwork Prince and cried at 3am.

Pages read: 250 (+250)

Books completed: 1

Challenges completed: Read a Hyped Book, Read a Book with Someone on the Cover


Day 2

I read The Pearl Thief in one day to keep up with the tradition of reading all Elizabeth Wein books all in one day.

Pages read: 578 (+326)

Books completed: 2

Challenges completed: Read a book in a single day


Day 3

I picked up Richard II and read the first scene and some of the introduction. Later that day, I started The Winner’s Curse. I was bent on finishing it on one day… then I fell asleep… at 8:30 pm (during the summer I tend to fall asleep around 3 or 4am so I was shocked.

Pages read: 873 (+295)

Books completed: 2

Challenges completed: None


Day 4

After sleeping for eleven hours straight, I woke up very confused. I proceed to finish The Winner’s Curse… and take a nap! Then I realized I wasn’t in the mood for any of my TBR picks and decided to start the anthology Because You Love to Hate Me. Then I picked up Lab Girl and yeah I’ve started too many books all at once.

Pages read: 1050 (+177)

Day 5

AKA the moment where I started failing miserably. Last year I only got to day 4 before screwing up, so progress? I read two more stories from BYLTHM and 30 pages of Richard II, and that was it.

Pages read: 1134 (+84)

Books completed: 3

Challenges completed: None(!)


Day 6

I had every intention to read all the books. I really did. But I had lunch with my best friend, and she told me she’s moving to the other side of the Atlantic in a month. Needless to say I was an utter mess (like my eyes ached for hours because of how much we cried). So I read like… 20 pages? I just couldn’t concentrate.

Pages read: 1154 (+20)

So I was busy most of the day, but I got home determined to finish Richard II. I did it!

How did fare in the BookTube-A-Thon? Did you get through all seven books? Did you lose steam as the week progressed, like I did?
