The week of the Bout of Books readathon is now over and I’m really happy with how I did. You can find my TBR and my previous update posts here, here and here. So without further ado, let’s talk about the books I read!
On Saturday I started Aristotle & Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz. I got about 115 pages into it and I really enjoyed it.
On the very last day I finished the book. Ultimately I gave it four out of five stars. As I said, I really enjoyed it. I loved the friendship between Ari and Dante and the slow build of the relationship. You don’t come across that very often in YA. I loved that last chapter. I loved Dante in general. I related to him in ways I haven’t found many characters to relate to. Even though the story is focused entirely around the characters, it still had a few plot twists I didn’t see coming.
I also started Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I got about 80 pages into it before the clock striked midnight. I’m really enjoying it so far. It’s very different.
Books Finished : 4
Pages Read : 1332
I’m really happy with my results. I took it kind of low-key so my wrap up is not as big as last month’s Booktube-a-thon. Still I got a good amount read and I’m very pleased with myself.
That’s all for this post. Thanks for reading! See you next time!
