Graphicsathon Round 4 Announcement!

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m just doing a short but informative post to announce round four of the Graphicsathon! I’ve been running this readathon for a while now and I’ve seriously been loving reading graphics with you all so I figured why not keep it going! And, this round we even have some fantastic new hosts AND we’re hosting sprints for the first time ever! (details at the end of this post)

So, what is Graphicsathon? It’s a readathon dedicated to anything told in graphic (aka. anything where the main storytelling devices is illustrations) so comics, manga and graphic novels all count! We’re also pretty calm about the rules so you can read web comics or even listen to them on audiobook if that’s a mode available to you (I know a lot of comics and graphic novels like Nimona or Ms Marvel are available via audio), it’s all about reading graphics!

I’ll have my tbr coming soon so you can look forward to that! What will you be reading for round four?

MARVEL-A-THON UPDATE WEEK FOUR

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

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!
