I did a good 15 hours of reading during readathon, so I do have it in me to stay focused on a book all day! In total I read 1302 pages and five books, which were:

The Boyband Murder Mystery by Ava Eldred. This was fun, reminded me of I Was Born for This a bit, it’s a lot about fandom and online friendships.

My Dearest Darkest by Kayla Cottingham. This stuff’s just my cat nip. Posh boarding school with mysterious tunnels, and an accidentally summoned being.

Saga volume 10 by Brian K. Vaughan + Fiona Staples. At last! I cried a bit at the end.

Demon in the Wood by Leigh Bardugo + Dani Pendergast. Prequel graphic novel to Shadow and Bone, focusing on the Darkling.

The Heartstopper Yearbook by Alice Oseman. Not a lot of new material as most the mini-comics included have been published online but it’s nice to have some full colour versions in print.

Saga comic next to toast with tomato/cucumber toppings, a succulent, and oranges.

I also made a start on Gilded by Marissa Meyer. After readathon, a thunderstorm rolled in and the power went out for a bit. So we dusted off a jigsaw puzzle and sat on the floor doing that for an hour or so. It was a good dry run for the Great British Blackouts that they’re suggesting might happen this winter.

Prior to the readathon I read House of Hunger by Alexis Henderson, which I’ll review this week, and the audiobook of The Book of Cold Cases by Simone St. James, which I found a bit boring.
