My page count is probably a bit off because My Lady’s Choosing is a choose your own adventure style book and I read two different paths but obviously not every page. It’s a bit too much for a tired brain to keep track of!
I didn’t even get to eat my cheese balls, but I did have a cooked breakfast for dinner which is kind of a reverse thing to do, right?
1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Well it would have been hour 1 if I’d tried to start then, but I was asleep. I suppose hour 6 which was when I made myself wake up and read.
2. Tell us ALLLLL the books you read!
Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers 5*
Angelic: Heirs & Graces by Simon Spurrier + Caspar Wijngaard 4*
Run, Riot by Nikesh Shukla 3*
My Favorite Thing is Monsters by Emil Ferris 4*
My Lady’s Choosing by Kitty Curran + Larissa Zageris 3*
3. Which books would you recommend to other Read-a-thoners?
Specifically for readathon, Angelic was cute and fun, but Becky Chambers all the way for when you have time to savour. Although My Favorite Thing is Monsters is great, I don’t think it was the easiest thing to read when tired.
4. How did you feel about this first-ever Reverse Readathon? Should we do it again?
OK, I don’t think either start time in Europe is that great, but after years of moaning about an afternoon start it is so much better than in the middle of the night. I was pretty sad about missing the beginning but it just wasn’t do-able after a day at work, and then I ended up missing the end because I finished a book at about 12:30am and I just didn’t have it in me to pick up something new.
I did read for about the same amount of time that I would in a normal readathon, but this was done in one go and therefore seemed a lot more tiring. I think it works as a relaxed, summer readathon but I’d probably be disappointed if these timings were adopted for the main event. However other time zones may disagree!
5. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? Would you be interested in volunteering to help organize and prep in October?
Very and yes.
