It’s over and done with… the last round… no more….
This readathon was a 10 day-long readathon from the 11th to the 19th July. There were reading challenges, booktube challenges etc. I only focused on the reading challenges. I did my full planed TBR here. Again it was a well organised and fully international readathon and I fear there will never again be another one quite like it… but I went out with a bang!
- Read the group book
- Read a host’s 5 star book
- Read a book based on the cover
- Read an adult book
- Free choice book
- Read a new to you author
- Read a graphic novel
- Read an book you were originally exited for but never picked up
- Read a predicted 5 star read
This round group book is Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman.
The list of the host’s 5 star read is as follows:
- A Gentleman Guide to Vice and Virtue
- Every Heart a Doorway
- Darkest Minds
- Girl on the Verge
- The Truth About Keeping Secrets
- Daisy Jones and the Six
- Perks of Being a Wallflower

Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
Challenges it fulfils: Hosts 5 star, and originally exited for
I finish this on the last day of the readathon as I had little to do at work. I wasn’t sure if I would finish it in time but I’m so pleased I did! I loved this! It really captivated my mind. It was dark and intense and really good! I’m totally up for watching the movie now 😁
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Grey
Challenges it fulfils: Based on the cover
I wasn’t fully drawn into this. For some reason I hadn’t expected the romance side of this book to be so prominent, but in the end that is what I liked most about this book. I understand the cover now though 😊
The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa
Challenges it fulfils: Adult book
I enjoyed this sweet book following a cat and his owner on a road trip around Japan. His owner trying to find someone else to take his cat but his cat doesn’t want to leave his owner and believes his owner needs him. I listen to this on audiobook and the cat narrative was very well done.
Heartstopper by Alice Osman
Challenges it fulfils: Graphic novel and new to you author
It took me about an hour to read this super cute queer comic about a boy in secondary school (high school) who falls for a straight boy. But then it turns out that the straight boy might not be straight after all? You don’t really get a conclusion in this book so I will be picking up volume 2 asap!
Storm of Locust by Rebecca Roanhorse
Challenges it fulfils: 5⭐️ prediction
I loved Trail of Lightning last year! I read that for the Predicted 5 star read for least year bibliothon so I picked up the sequel for this round of the readathon. It didn’t disappoint! I loved it! I love Maggie as the main character. I love her badassery, her skills, her issues and everything else about her. Love it all! So looking forward to the next installment 🥰
I love this readathon. Its a shame its finished and not coming back. I had fun though in this last round 😊
I managed all but the group book and free choice book, but maybe Storm of Locust is a free choice cause I knew I was reading this before I saw the reading challenges.
Anyone else participating in this readathon? How did you do?
