First Readathon ever!

Hello friends!

Here we are again, trying to get through another challenge because one challenge at a time is not our style!

This was because we watched Squibblesreads and BookswithEmilyFox.

Terrible, Terrible ideas!

But let me explain the challenge first, basically, we had to read for 24 hours in a span of 48 hours however you want. So for example, the first day 20 hours and the second 4 hours or 12 hours in a day and 12 hours in another.

We thought it could be fun and that it would be easy to do the 24h readathon in two days. OOOOOOOHHH WELLLL….

Here we are after two days, with two big shopping bags under the eyes, looking like sad pandas writing this post!




It was incredible!

I always thought I was reading much more than that, but well having the stopwatch made me realize that I actually don’t spend that much time reading as I want. In two days I read 12hours and 20 minutes, but I am super happy that I participated because I had an excuse to read more and finished my unfinished books.

Here is my wrap up:

I finished The Power of Habits

Started and finished Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone

Continued Eldest (Book two of Eragon).

I know, I know!

It is not much, but real life dragged me out from the readathon too many times!

just one more thing.. I am a new fan of Harry Potter!!!!!!

Yes, this one was my first time reading it. I see you there, don’t judge me!


I read for 13 hours, 18 minutes and 14 seconds (in this challenge even the seconds matter). Obviously, I failed and I felt awful for a good hour but then my sister wrote to me and said that even she failed this challenge, so I felt better.

It was a really good challenge and we will do it again! Maybe when we both aren’t busy and have to do like a billion other things.

In 13 hours I finished ‘Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda’ and started ‘Crazy Rich Asians’. I really wanted to start reading ‘ Crazy Rich Asians’ but I didn’t realize that it was long 600 pages!!!

So that’s it! We know that it’s not a very long list of books but we want to post on our blog, also, our failures and not only the good things.

Hopefully next time we complete the readathon and we will surely let you know in a new blog post!
