Last week, from the fifteenth the the twenty first of June, I took part in the #RAINBOWTHON readathon, organised by the Carpe Librum girls. You can see my TBR here!
I managed to read FOUR BOOKS during the readathon, which came to a grand total of 1613 PAGES! I'm happy with that, especially because I really enjoyed all of the books I read.
Here are all the books I read in the readathon...
ONE - SARAH CROSSAN (GREEN)
READ ON: day 1
MY THOUGHTS: This. Book. Broke. Me. I've written a full review, but I'll just say that this book is beautifully written and fascinating and brilliant and you have to read it when it comes out in AUGUST.
FULL REVIEW: x
PERCY JACKSON AND THE GREEK GODS - RICK RIORDAN (ORANGE, KIND OF)
READ ON: days 1-3
MY THOUGHTS: This book was so much fun! I love Greek mythology, and I love Percy Jackson's POV, so obviously I was going to love this. It's kind of ridiculous (if you know any Greek mythology you know what I mean) but it's hilarious and a really entertaining read.
EMMY & OLIVER - ROBIN BENWAY (BLUE)
READ ON: days 2-5
MY THOUGHTS: Awww...this book was so sweet. I really liked the characters and I enjoyed the story, and overall I really liked it. I'll have a full review up some time this week!
I'LL GIVE YOU THE SUN - JANDY NELSON (YELLOW)
READ ON: days 5-7
MY THOUGHTS: I didn't love this book as everybody else seems to. Sorry! For the first half I really wasn't enjoying it, but then I got into it and the last part completely blew me away. Don't get me wrong, it was definitely beautiful and powerful but...my full review will be up this week.
That's all I read during the week! I had a really great time during the readathon and I'm really happy I got to all these books. Like I said, stay tuned for full reviews of Emmy & Oliver and I'll give you the Sun.
