Cramathon 2017 Wrap-up

Through participating in the Cramathon I finished three books and started a fourth. I see this as a success even though I only completed one of the challenges. The readathon pushed me to read instead of wasting my time on Twitter and I’m really happy it did.


What I read

13206900

Winter by Marissa Meyer

Goodreads

I started the readathon by finishing the last 162 pages of this book. I loved this re-read! Winter remains an outstanding conclusion to one of my favourite series! 5 out of 5 stars from me!

Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

Goodreads

Then I read the short story collection from The Lunar Chronicles and I adored it too. The stories were a wonderful addition to the series and they gave me all the feels. Especially the wedding one. I was swooning! I would recommend this to any lover of the Lunar Chronicles! I gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars!

Kids of Appetite by David Arnold
Goodreads

Up next was Kids of Appetite by David Arnold, one of my favourite books of 2017. I re-read and annotated my own copy and I loved the experience. I was rushing myself though, so I wasn’t as immersed in the story as I was the first time. I still absolutely loved it though! Would highly recommend! I gave it 5 out of 5 stars obviously.

The Sculptor by Scott McCloud

Goodreads

This was an okay read. I finished it the day after the readathon. I ended up giving it 3 out of 5 stars. I really liked the art style and how it was fitted onto the page. I liked how the author played with how the drawings followed each other to show the emotions and how fast time was passing by. I didn’t like the main character David though. He was broody, selfish, had anger issues and his behaviour only got worse over time. I felt a disconnect from him. The romance was very unrealistic too.

Of all these challenges I only completed one and that was to read a book that was gifted to you. My brother gave me Winter last year for Christmas!

I had previously said I wouldn’t focus on the challenges though, so I’m still happy with my readathon. I focused on the books on my physical TBR, which I lowered with three books!


3 books finished

That’s all for this post! I hope you enjoyed it! Thanks for reading! See you next time!

Love,

  1. Glad to see you read Winter that last in the Cinder series! I absolutely adored that series! Thorn and Cress were my favorites and remain one of my favorite couples out of all the books I’ve read!

    Also just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Liebster Award on my blog because I think your blog is the absolute cutest and I love reading your posts!

    Happy reading 🙂

    • I absolutely love The Lunar Chronicles too! It’s amazing! I can’t seem to decide what my favourite couple is. Either Scarlet and Wolf or Cinder and Kai! Thorne and Cress are fantastic too of course!

      Thanks! That’s so nice of you!!

      Happy reading☺
