As many of you might know, last week was the first Dutch Read-a-thon organised by Joany from Craving Pages. Sometimes, when visiting English blogs I read something about read-a-thons but I never actually participated in them. So this wasn't just The Netherlands' first read-a-thon, but also mine. Unfortunately, I had to work five days that week, four of them during the read-a-thon so I couldn't read all day. But during my spare time I made sure to spend as much time as I could with my books. So here are my personal results of the read-a-thon:
- I've read 5,23 books, one each day, from Monday 'till Friday and 23% of a book on saturday morning.
- I've read 1963 pages.
- I've read three Young Adults, one Woman's Fiction and one New Adult.
- I only gave one book 5 stars; the dutch version of Night Road by Kristin Hannah
- I gave the lowest rating (3 stars) to For You by Mimi strong
Now, I know I'm not the one who read the most book during the read-a-thon, but I'm very satisfied with my results. I'm happy I participated and I'm already looking forward to the next read-a-thon. Before last week I let other things get in the way of reading, but the read-a-thon gave me back my rhythm and my books are getting my full attention again!
Books read during the read-a-thon:
- Zomernacht by Kristin Hannah (Dutch version of Night Road)
- De Klauwen van het Woud by Carrie Ryan (Dutch version of The Forest of Hands and Teeth #1)
- For You by Mimi Strong
- The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern
- Starcrossed (#1) by Josephine Angelini
- 23% of Seducing Cinderella (Fighting For Love #1) by Gina L. Maxwell
To everyone who participated, what are your results? And are you happy with those results?
