This is just a short blog post keeping up with my progress for the Spookathon and the Dewey’s 24 hour Read-a-thon. For information about these readathons, as well as my TBR, please look at the TBR post.
Spookathon started very slowly. I had to work a lot more (over-hours) than I expected, so I barely read anything on Monday – Wednesday. I read a few stories from Horror Stories, I tried to get into Black Mad Wheel but wasn’t really feeling it. Then I decided to take Thursday and Friday off, as I barely take days off and had so many left. During those days I read a couple of more stories from Horror Stories. However, during the weekend before this week, I had already started Jurassic Park and I enjoyed it at the time, so I decided to pick that back up. After that I mainly read from Jurassic Park until the start of the Dewey’s 24 hour readathon, which for me started at Saturday 21st of October 2:00 PM.
- Finished Jurassic Park: a thriller + a book with a spooky setting (jungle with dinosaurs)
- Finished Horror Stories: a book with orange on the cover, a book with a spooky word in the title (‘horror’), and a childhood fear (one of the stories was about home invasion, and multiple about the dark)
Completed all the challenges! I read 740 pages in total for this one: I read all of Horror Stories, all of Jurassic Park (minus 35 pages which I already read the week before) and 95 pages of Silence of the Lambs.
I’m starting Dewey’s with the following page count:
Jurassic Park – start page 200
Horror Stories – start page 75
Black Mad Wheel – start page 0
I’m hoping to finish the top two books and get far into Black Mad Wheel. However, if I find I’m not enjoying Black Mad Wheel, I might pick up Silence of the Lambs instead.
