5 TIPS ON READATHONING TO THE MAX // I give you all the advice because I’m a pro???

Remember the Mate-A-Thon is happening from the 12th to the 19th of October!

MARVEL-A-THON UPDATE WEEK FOUR

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with my Marvel-A-Thon wrap up for week 4!

flowerdivider

MONDAY 25

My Plain Jane (The Lady Janies, #2)

9:33 AM

It’s a new day and a new week which means new blog posts and a new me. Naturally, the new me is sick, but at least the new blog posts are kicking! I had one that I’ve been excited about for months go up today so I can’t wait for you guys to read it – it’s called The Lady Janies Book Tag – and it’s an original tag and I’m still screaming you guys!

12:37 PM

It’s a miracle, I’ve finally finished a book! I just finished Ice Wolves and honestly I love Amie Kaufman but that book was so meh holy shit.

TUESDAY 26

2:45 PM

Ugh, another day, another book being left unread. I think I’ve come to terms with not finishing the readathon at this point so I think I’m just going to chill and try listening to something different, like Divergent??

I pretty much spent the whole day out of the house. I ended up at the Lifeline Bookfest (again) since my trip went so poorly on Sunday but, I ended up not even buying any books for myself. I took one of my brothers with me and he found some Mythbusters and some other dvds (I found The Mummy 2!) but I ended up once again, only coming away with dvds, AT A BOOK SALE!???!??!!!

I don’t know if I’ll go back again or this is me officially giving up hope but, I think it’s safe to say that this has not been my year.

6:59 PM

I just outlined (and organised) a post to go up on Tuesday and I am both excited and anxious about it. It involved my brother and my bookshelves so expect some mayhem!

WEDNESDAY 27

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

10:51 AM

I am so glad I decided to pick up Divergent for a reread! I started it this morning and I’m roughly seven chapters in and having such a fun time!

I’m watching Friends now and writing blog posts but I actually can’t wait to pick it up again!

9:37 PM

I am honestly so surprised by how much I’m enjoying re-reading Divergent. I’m going to put it down for the night and watch some more of Friends but, I will definitely be picking it back up tomorrow!

THURSDAY 28 & FRIDAY 29

I think I’m going to combine today and tomorrow purely because I have the same plans and my brother is home from school so I think all I’m going to do is play Mario Party and read Divergent.

SATURDAY 30

Today is the last day of Marvel-A-Thon and I know I really started to dwindle pretty quickly but I’m not even mad because I’ve already read so many books this month that I don’t think I would’ve read until years later.

As for today’s plans, I am going into the city with the fam and I’ll probably pick up The Loneliest Girl In The Universe or I’ll just continue with Divergent, either way, I’m just spending the day chilling.

MONDAY 18

10:02 AM

I have no idea what to read halp.

I know I need to finish Final Draft so I can review it but, I’m not enjoying it and I kinda want to dnf it…

8:32 PM

I just finished reading Spider-Man/ Deadpool Vol 0 and oh my god no. I was in need of a laugh and this was just boring as hell.

TUESDAY 19

Today feels like it’s going to be a flop. I do want to read, but I have no motivation to do so, so I think I’ll just distract myself with blog posts and How To Train Your Dragon 2 and then tomorrow I’ll go nuts with some reading!

WEDNESDAY 20

How to Train Your Dragon 2 Poster

10:04 AM

So far, I have made a fully purple breakfast (porridge & a smoothie: just add blueberries) and I have also written a few blog posts so I am feeling slightly productive. Now, I’ going to put a poll up on Twitter & Instagram to see what I should read next!

You guys will decide between Ice Wolves & Wires and Nerve Vol 1 which will hopefully distract me from my How To Train Your Dragon withdrawals.

8:13 PM

I just started reading Wires & Nerve and so far and I am really loving the art style. I’ve really stressed myself out in the last hour trying to figure out what my route to and from school is going to be for Uni. Basically, Mon-Wed I’ll be catching a 5:30am bus and getting home around 7-8 pm so I am less than enthused about this! But, I’m hoping getting back into the world of The Lunar Chronicles will help calm me down!

THURSDAY 21

Wires and Nerve, Volume 1 (Wires and Nerve, #1)

11:35 AM

I just finished Wires & Nerve Vol 1 and I really enjoyed it! It wasn’t perfect and I hate her love interest but, Cress and Thorne made my day and totally convinced me that I need to re-read the series asap!

8:29 PM

I really haven’t had much reading progress today. I decided to bake some cupcakes and try to convince my parents to help me search for a new laptop (I think I was successful??). I have listened to maybe 2 minutes of Ice Wolves before putting it down. I am mostly just in the mood to watch Friends and chill for the night. I will definitely be picking it back up tomorrow though! Seriously, if I don’t finish Ice WOlves by the end of the week you guys need to yell at me!

FRIDAY 22

Guess who hasn’t read a single thing today! I’ve spent most of the day watching Friends and writing blog posts! I haven’t so much as picked up a book, though I have discovered a new favourite movie (The Mummy with Brenden Fraser) tonight! I do hope to finally pick up a book tomorrow though!

SATURDAY 23

Elementals: Ice Wolves

1:11 PM

I’m finally reading! I just turned on my audiobook for Ice Wolves by Amie Kaufman. So far I’m not too fussed on it but, I’m hoping to warm up to it soonish. Especially, because I want to finish it before I go to the Lifeline Bookfest tomorrow and conveniently forget about all the books on my tbr.

SUNDAY 24

Today was the Lifeline Bookfest! Naturally I dragged mum and my brother and they got bags of books, while I got a stack of Brendan Fraser dvds, a Halsey album and another copy of Peter Pan. I don’t know what happened, maybe I malfunctioned or something??? I think I’ll go back later in the week though, because I have been saving up for this for ages, so I might as well check it out on different days.

Anyway, all this to say that I didn’t read anything today. I mostly spent the day looking at books so I never ended up actually picking one up and reading it, oh, the irony!

MONDAY 11

The Bourne Identity (Jason Bourne, #1)

8:05 AM

It’s a new day and it’s a new week of the Marvel-A-Thon! Last night I ended up only getting to page 30 of Bad Romance but so far I am loving it. I then decided to do something completely out of my norm, and watched The Bourne Identity, which as it turns out, I really enjoyed. So, last night I also picked up the book to see if I could keep that good luck going, and so far I’m roughly 5 chapters in (I’m listening on audio) and I’m really liking it.

4:53 PM

I have had a pretty meh day so far, mostly I’ve just been really deflated and low on energy so I haven’t really done anything of substance. The only good thing I can say that I’ve done is that I’m pretty much halfway through The Bourne Identity, though I am really questioning why I thought it would be a good idea to read an almost 600-page book in a readathon???

TUESDAY 12

9:07 AM

I haven’t read anything so far today and I’m only roughly 9/22 hours into Bourne. But, I think I’m just going to spend my day trying to control my anxiety and blogging since I’ve missed so much time due to wifi-deprivation (it’s a thing, right?)

WEDNESDAY 13

11:58 AM

So far today I’ve been decently productive. I’ve baked some cookies, listened to some more of Bourne, made tonight’s dinner and outlined a blog post or two.

I am hoping to finish Bourne tonight, or at least get really close to the end. I didn’t get much of anything done yesterday, but I did plan my uni classes which was pretty intense for me. I will be starting Uni in July so no pressure but I am feeling pretty pressured. Yesterday I was pretty anxious so all I really did was sort out some Uni stuff and watch Tangled (because I’m an adult and an amateur Disney fan).

10:32 PM

I finally finished The Bourne Identity! Maybe now I can finally pick up a new book!

THURSDAY 14

What even is reading. Ugh, I did everything except pick up a book today. Baking? Check. Pasta? Check. All the cooking? Check. Wash dog? Check.

FRIDAY 15

I am a terrible blogger it’s official. I have no blogging mojo and no will to read. Although, I do have a review scheduled for Final Draft in a couple of days so I think I’ll try to chill and start reading the book. Wish me luck (send help).

SATURDAY 16

Final Draft

So, Final Draft was a bust. I got roughly 32% of the way in before putting it down and just never picking it back up. Im 99.6% sure I’m in a reading slump but I’m trying to push through it.

I ended up seeing The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society at the cinemas with my mum and LOVING IT so I picked the book up at the shop while I was there and I’m really hoping to love it just as much as every else. *fingers and toes crossed*

SUNDAY 17

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

11:31 AM

I am feeling thoroughly underwhelmed by this week. I loved week one but so far I have only managed to read one more book and to then get myself into a reading slump. I am really loving Guernsey though, so I’m hoping to finish it today and then to hopefully keep my momentum going with a comic later tonight. Either way, a slump is a slump and hopefully, next week will be more successful.

8:44 PM

I just finished Guernsey and I loved it! I will say that I loved the movie just a little bit more, but it was a wonderful book either way! I don’t think this fits any challenges, but I’m glad I read it nonetheless. I’m going to bed now because Winter exhausts me but, I am hoping to pick up a comic or two tomorrow to hopefully kick my *ss into gear with phase 2!

MARVEL-A-THON UPDATE WEEK ONE

Hey guys! Today I’m coming at you with my “live” “week 1” update for Jamishelves’ Marvel-A-Thon! I haven’t done one of these for a while but so far I’m feeling pretty confident, and I hope you guys enjoyreading my progress. I feel like so far this readathon has really pushed me to pick up different types of stories that I probably would’ve pushed back and not picked up for years, so thanks Jamieson!

Marvel-A-Thon was created by Jamieson over at Jamishelves and you should all bow down to her because she is amazing and I love her for taking so much time to make this readathon!

FRIDAY JUNE 1

Caraval (Caraval, #1)

9 AM

OKay, so I am already moving off my tbr, but I’m sick and not really in the mood for anything much at the moment, so I think I’ll listen to Caraval while I play some Solitaire or write a blog post. I’m a bit sick at the moment and I should be going on a holiday (omg, what is this unheard of word???) at the end of the month so I’m trying to get ahead of my blogging schedule for once in my life.

11:27 AM

Caraval, Chapter 35

I’m almost finished Caraval and now I’ve officially written some more blog posts. Apparently being confined to a bed is great for writing posts. I just finished writing my review of Undead Girl Gang and oh, boy did I not like that book! I think I’ll try and write some more recommendations now, as I need a bit of a pick me up and they are my favourite post to write!

12:35 PM

Whoop whoop! First book down! I think I’ll count this as the Iron Man challenge, first book in a series. Honestly, I really want to pick up Legendary (the sequel) but it doesn’t fit into any of the challenges so I might have to pick up something else or just not count Legendary towards a challenge!

SATURDAY JUNE 2

Legendary (Caraval, #2)

2:35 PM

So, it’s day two of the month and I am well and truly sick! I ended up feeling pretty mentally and physically exhausted last night so I didn’t do any more reading but, I watched the 2015 Cinderella and was asleep by 10pm.

Today has pretty much been a similar story, I’ve hung out with the dog most of the day and exhausted half my tissue supply. I am starting my audiobook for Legendary as I write this but I think my main goal for today will be to try and make my throat better, so I can talk more easily.

8:39 PM

I just finished up re-watching The Princess Bride with the fam while I wrote some blog posts. It was so much fun to watch that movie again. I haven’t watched it in so long and I forgot how ridiculously hilarious it is! In terms of Legendary, I am roughly 12 chapters in and really enjoying it!

SUNDAY JUNE 3

11:17 AM

I know it’s getting pretty late now, but I swear I’ve been up since at least 8 this morning. I’ve had my porridge and I’m currently listening to some more of Legendary and taking advantage of the good blogging mood I’m in!

1:55 PM

Legendary is taking me a bit longer to read than I originally assumed, but I am still really enjoying it. So, I think I might push the rules a bit and include it as my Hulk challenge, green on the cover. I’m going to try and finish it by the end of the day but I have no idea if that’s going to happen!

MONDAY JUNE 4

The Song of Achilles

11:28 AM

So, I have been up since 7:30 this morning but of course, I am only just updating you guys now. Last night, I finished Legendary and I predicted the ending from pretty far away but who cares because I loved it. Also, guess who finally read something off her tbr! I also read volume 1 of Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur and loved it probably too much.

I started off my morning by baking cookies and listening to The Song of Achilles and while they were in the oven I ended up reading Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur Vol 2, which I finished and also really loved.

I think I’ll count Moon Girl V1 towards my Iron Man 2 prompt because apparently the world is full of buzz kills and I think Vol 2 could also fit with the Hulk prompt too.

TUESDAY JUNE 5

8:00 AM

I haven’t read anything so far today because I ended up sleeping over at a friend’s place and we had a really great time. We ended up watching Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri & Thor: Ragnarok. It was actually really nice to be able to chill for once.

7:18 PM
I’m home now but I’m pretty tired so I think I’m just going to put some Once Upon A Time on and go to sleep early so I can pick The Song of Achilles up tomorrow morning.

WEDNESDAY JUNE 6

EDIT: The Internet was out for Wednesday and our Internet provider can’t send anyone out until Monday, so I didn’t get to update you guys. But I will now!

Basically, I didnt do much because it was game one of State of Origin (aka. The biggest event of the year in Aus) so I pretty much spent the day being anxious (I’m from NSW but, I live in QLD so it’sactually kind of dangerous around this time of year). I hate SOO so I went and saw Solo with my mum & brothers (we all hate football lol) instead and I loved it, I gave it all the stars!! 9.5/10 would definitely see again!

THURSDAY JUNE 7

No wifi again so I had to get creative. Basically ya girl needs wifi to be a blogger and ya girls got none. Instead of blogging I ended up baking cookies  (from scratch, because I’m a pro) and listening to The Song of Achilles. So far, I’m 187 pages in and I’m feeling pretty meh about it. I already know the story and I’m not loving A or P so I’m feeling a disconnect from the story. Hopefully I’ll start enjoying it soon!

Also, I read Giant Days Vol 1 today, yay for reading!

FRIDAY JUNE 8

9:51 AM

Finally, I’m updating you on the day of!

I just picked up Three Dark Crowns again and I’m hoping to finally make some leeway with it. It’s realllly slow but I’m trying to reserve judgement.

4:36 PM

I’ve spent most of the day either cooking, chilling with the dog or reading Three Dark Crowns. I’m roughly 260 pages in and really starting to enjoy it. We’re really in the thick of things now and getting to know the characters so I’m actually quite enjoying it, though it takes up a lot of brain power.

SATURDAY JUNE 9

12:40 PM

So far I’ve had a pretty slow reading morning. I planned on finishing 3DCs last night but ended up watching Tarzan for the first time and then rewatching Frozen (why do so many people hate Frozen??).

I think my goal for today will be to finish Three Dark Crowns and hopefully to read some more of The Song of Achilles. *fingers crossed*

5:32 PM 

I have finished Three Dark Crowns oml finally! (I really enjoyed it and will hopefully be picking up book 2 soon!)

SUNDAY JUNE 10

10:05 AM

Welp, it’s finally happened folks, I have finally read The Song of Achilles. All I can say is that I am definitely in the minority with this book. I think it was pretty meh. I was bored most of the time reading it and I’ll be honest, I think it was pretty overhyped.

I don’t know if I’ll read anymore today. I wanted to do a phase per week but there’s no harm in starting earlier so maybe I’ll pick up something else later in the day.

(Sorry if I just chucked hate on your favourite book 😧❤)

5:37 PM

I just started Bad Romance by Heather Demitrios and so far I’m really enjoying it – the writing is great! I think I’ll read some more tonight and then I might starts season 5 of Once Upon a Time. Either way, I think I’ve had a successful “first week” (if a week was 10 days lol) to the Marvel-A-Thon and I’m excited to continue!

Series (4)

Hey guys, so the Crackdown Readathon started on the 9th and today you’re coming along with me during the readathon! 

Here are my live updates during the readathon!

arrowicon

Remember, if it’s in red, it’s a link!

This readathon focuses on series so hopefully, I’ll be able to do well. I have been doing pretty well with reading series so far this year and I would like to keep that trend going this month and I think this readathon will really help!

MY READATHON TBR

ANTThe Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #2) The Ship of the Dead (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #3) Renegades (Renegades, #1) Silver Surfer, Vol. 5: A Power Greater Than Cosmic Alex + Ada, Vol. 2

THE HAMMER OF THOR / SHIP OF THE DEAD / RENEGADES / SILVER SURFER VOL 5 / ALEX + ADA VOL 2

dotbreaker

MY GAME PLAN

  • The Hammer of Thor – 471 pages
  • Ship of The Dead – 423 pages
  • Renegades – 556 pages
  • Silver Surfer – 176 pages
  • Alex + Ada – 128 pages

I have the audiobooks of the last two Magnus Chase books in my Audible account so I’m hoping I’ll be able to get to them since I read book 1 last year and loved it!

Since this is a 10-day readathon I also have 2 comics on my list, though I will probably read more than 2! Also, I currently have Renegades on hold at the library which I hope to read last if I have extra time after finishing Magnus Chase.

FEB 09th 12:01 AM

I’m going to start this readathon properly and finally start a readathon at the beginning! I’ve got my Magnus Chase & The Hammer of Thor audiobook on and I’m going to make some coffee!

CAFFEINE COUNTER: i

12: 59AM

I have almost been reading for a full hour, and I officially love this series. Riordan is really succeeding in making his books more diverse. We just got introduced to Alex Fierro – a transgender and gender fluid character. There is also a deaf character and a Muslim character.

1:07AM

I’m only on chapter 11 of Hammer of Thor but I’m pretty tired so I think I’ll finish my coffee and go to bed. (I ended getting to page 100 before going to sleep)

NOON
Okay, so technically I woke up at 9am but I’ve been reading so… sorry?

So far I am 165 pages in and loving Magnus Chase! My favourite is, of course, Hearthstone!

12:15 PM

Time to do some errands! I’ve got to go all the way across town to hand in some paperwork and then I’m going to pick up my brothers from school. Fridays are usually pretty busy days for me so I don’t know how much I will actually get read today.

4:56 PM

Okay, so I’m back. I’ve run my errands and bought some groceries (bread, milk…etc.)

I have also just made my dinner (a thick berry smoothie) which tasted pretty good tbh.

Image result for spider-man homecoming poster

9:00 PM 

I’m getting a bit tired at this point so I think I’m going to continue reading the book but I think I’ll play Spider-Man Homecoming in the background.

10:00 PM

THIS MOVIE IS BOMB AND I’M HAVING FEELINGS

Currently: 366 pages in, out of 472

dotbreaker

The Ship of the Dead (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #3)

FEB 10th 10:30 AM

I’ve technically been awake for a few hours but I thought I would give myself a few hours to make breakfast and relax before I got stuck into reading for the day.

3:47 PM

I am really enjoying this so far and I’m really enjoying the character Alex Fierro! So far I’m roughly 30 chapters in and pretty sure I can finish this one tonight!

CAFFEINE COUNTER: iii

7:48 PM

I just finished The Ship of The Dead, which I loved!! I think I’m going to read a comic, take a shower and go to bed because guess who has their course at 8am tomorrow! (On a Sunday, who does that??)

dotbreaker

FEB 11th 4:00 PM

Okay so I haven’t actually read anything today, which honestly feels pretty weird but I only just finished my course so I think that’s okay.

10:07 PM

So I have been in a pool for 6 hours today and I am exhausted so I’m going to bed. See you tomorrow when I will hopefully be more excited about life/ awake and ready to read.

dotbreaker

FEB 12th 10:02 PM

And it’s 10pm and I still haven’t read anything. Two whole days of not reading anything, who have I become? (tired and hangry, that’s who)

dotbreaker

FEB 13th 10:47

So… (gosh, why does this feel awkward?) it occurred to me this morning that I haven’t really been updating you guys on what I’ve been doing, reading or otherwise.

This morning all I’ve done is watch any booktube videos that have come out this morning, made breakfast (mango smoothie because it’s hot af in my house & raisin toast, though the way I “toast” you can barely call it that) and I’ve also been going through my Feedly and checking out all the new blog posts.

Reading-wise: Yesterday, I was planning on picking up my arc of Ace of Shades but the publisher sent me the wrong book so I think I will give Renegades a go in an hour or two.

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)

12:30 PM

Honestly, guys I don’t think I’m feeling the reading game today. I tried to read a page or two of Renegades but I wasn’t feeling it so I think I’ll pick it up in a day or two. I have been feeling like I’m picking up Percy Jackson again though, so I found the audio on YouTube and I think I’ll listen to it and write some blog posts.

 

Speaking of, is there anything you guys would like me to write?

2:20 PM

I am roughly 2 hours into the audiobook and somehow only 6 chapters in. This astounds me, is this what it feels like to listen to a book on normal speed? I do not care for it, but it’s okay because I love Percy Jackson.

dotbreaker

FEB 14th 12:18 PM

The Magic Misfits (Magic Misfits #1)

You guys I am everywhere today. I spent the morning trying to read The Magic Misfits and I think I will try and finish it throughout the week but I really don’t think I’m going to love it. BUTTTT, I also just did the dishwasher and while I was doing that I started listening to The Cruel Prince. Sooo… what am I actually currently reading you may ask?

CR: The Lightning Thief, The Magic Misfits, The Cruel Prince

I also have work at 3 so I think I’ll take The Magic Misfits with me because I usually get there a bit early. But, until then I’ll listen to The Cruel Prince.

9:25

Hi! It’s been a minute. I’ve obviously been home from work for a few hours at this point and so far I’ve only gotten 110 pages through The Magic Misfits and so far I’m not too impressed. I think in an hour or two I might go to sleep because I think I got a few too many kicks to the ribs at work today and I’ feeling quite sick at this point.

Hey Guys, guess who’s making an effort to update more regularly!

So I only read about 30 pages last night before going to sleep but I have been reading since 9:30 this morning and I’m roughly 170 pages in and I think I’ll be able to finish in an hour or so. I’m definitely feeling a lot better after getting some sleep, which is a relief since I have work again this afternoon – it’s only one class though so I should be able to get some reading in while I wait for my brothers to finish their swim lessons.

Until the next update, I think I’ll snack on some leftover rice and bean and try to finish The Magic MIsfits!

And I’ve finally finished The Magic Misfits and I think I’m going to review this one so you can look forward to my review after this post comes out!

I think I’m also going to do the dishwasher soon and listen to The Cruel Prince while I do that and I might eat some fruit or something because I keep forgetting to eat substantial food.

So… I have not read anything. Not a single thing. I think I’ve just been too stressed about other things and I’ve definitely been sidetracked as the readathon has gone on.

I did go shopping today (18th) so I definitely think I will be able to get back into reading soon because I’m quite excited about the newer books that I bought (it was a 2 for $20 sale, guys I got excited).

While the readathon has not panned out the way I thought it would, I am still happy with what I’ve read. I finished the Magnus Chase trilogy which I’ve been meaning to do, I read my first middle-grade of the year and I started a newly hyped YA book, though I’m not sure how I feel about it yet.
