#hidingReadAThon Wrap Up

As you probably already know, this Easter weekend lovely Annika from Hiding in Books hosted a read-a-thon simply called #hidingReadAThon.

Rules were pretty simple, we were our own bosses and had to read as much as we wanted to to kill some time over Easter break.

When it comes to writing, I will be the first to admit I failed badly and the only thing I wrote were tweets.
Every spare time I tried to spend reading, but I promised to myself that I will do my best to do more blog hopping and leave blog and GR comments this week.
I know I have been a pretty shitty member of blogging (and bookish in general) community lately and it is about time to change it once and for all!

But now, let’s get to my read-a-thon wrap up:

Firstly, I want to phrase my reading buddy Trunchy who rooted for me most of the time I spent reading:

trunchy

Even though she was sleeping most of the time, her purring was the best music background I needed for my reading atmosphere.

I happened to finish two books from my tbr:

blogger girl my map of you

Blogger Girl was a buddy read I did on twitter (with my blogger friend Amanda from ChocolatePages, and I enjoyed discussions we had). You can expect my review for it soon.

My Map of You was maybe the best book I read this month and review for it will go live on it’s releasing day, April 21st).

I also started a new book:

28436039

The Smell of Other People’s Houses is a historical fiction. It is pretty short (240 pages). I am half way trough it and am pretty sure I’ll be finishing this one tonight. You can expect my review for it on April 7th, because that is a relesing date of the edition I got from the publisher (SPOILER ALERT: I plan to post my review on Goodreads tomorrow).

 

Overall, when it comes to reading I am pretty satisfied with an amount of pages I read (even though I didn’t count), I managed to finish (almost) three books.

One book I didn’t get to finish, the one called No Place To Hide, I do plan to finish before the month is over so you can expect my review for it pretty soon too.

However, I am not happy with my lacking when it comes to blog hopping and commenting, but I will correct that from tomorrow on.
I have to.

  1. My cat didn’t leave my side either, but all his purring did, was make me fall asleep :P. Great job on your readathon! I hope we will be doing one together again soon. 😀

  2. You have the most adorable reading buddy! — and writing tweets definitely counts!
    I really want to read the Smell of Other People’s Houses! I hope you enjoy that one too and look forward to all your reviews! I’m glad you enjoyed My Map of You that much – sounds like I need to read it to my pile 🙂

    I always feel like I need to be better about blog hopping as well.. but at the end of the day, you do what you can and there’s no need to feel guilty!
    Thanks so much again for taking part – it’s been so nice having you on board!

    • It was nice to be a part of it as well, I just hope that the next time I’ll find out about it on time, LOL.
      I still haven’t finished the smell of other ppl’s houses because I ended up watching Amy Winehouse doc, but it is so good so far and I feel like this read will be some deep sh*t, if you know what I mean.
      I plan to do a pretty detailed but no spoilery review for My Map so I hope it will help you to make a decision if you should put it in your tbr.
