Hello! So, on Saturday, I participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon. It was sort of a last minute decision, so I wasn’t as organized with this one as Dewey’s readathon in April, and I had a few things to do that evening. That being said, I still read quite a bit, and I’m really happy with how the readathon went for me!
First, I read the last chapter in The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. I had hoped to finish it on Friday, before the readathon, but that didn’t work out, and that was okay! I enjoyed the book, but I felt like the ending lacked something. I ended up giving it 3 stars.
Next, I read the last 165 pages, and finally finished Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle. While I really did love how atmospheric and mysterious this book was, I found myself a bit confused at times, and had trouble keeping all the characters straight. I will say, though, the ending really redeemed itself for me. I ended up also giving this one 3 stars.
Then, I read a chapter of Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. I had been hoping to read a bit more than just one chapter, but I ended up getting busy.
Last, I read Regal Hearts episode 1 by Livy Jarmusch. This series has so much promise! It revolves around several different characters with very different lives. I’m really looking forward to seeing how all the stories intertwine with each other. I ended up giving this one 4 stars.
There’s my wrap-up! Did you participate in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon? Let me know in the comments! 👇
