24 Hour Readathon: How’d It Go?

So I was able to stay up for more of the 24 hours than I thought I would be able to, and even though I mostly finished comics and graphic novels I started two books and it kind of got me out of a reading slump.

What did I read:

Shellder: A comic

Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld

This was a cute read that I needed towards the end of the day when I was getting tired it was very beautiful, I need to look more into the Gemworld fandom because this was very pretty and the art was done by someone from somewhere I have live.

Amazon: Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld

Kingler-Buy a Book

The Ice Princesses Fair Illusion

This was an easy prompt and since I need Polar Fantasy for Eskana I thought it would be a good pick. Plus anything with Ice Princesses is going to catch my attention since I’m a Frozen fan to the max.

Amazon: The Ice Princesses’ Fair Illusion

Psyduck-Read a Confusing Book

This book is confusing but eventually it leads to a very sweet ending the journeys the main characters take just aren’t straight forward. But it is a very beautiful book and I’d read it again just for the illustrations.

Amazon: Coming Back

Wartorle-Water on the Cover

Swim Team

This book about a black girl thrown into swim class deals with the history of swimming and race as well as female friendships.

Amazon: Swim Team

The books I started but didn’t finish

Shielded

I got maybe a third of the way through though now I’m interested and I think it’s a polar fantasy so I can kill a couple of birds with one stone. I’m going to try and read more today.

Amazon: Shielded

Almost Flying

This was going to be my LGBT book but I just got too tired even though I probably could have finished it.

In this 24 Hour Readathon I caught a lot of Pokemon, more than I expected, I also caught a Goldeen for treat yourself for playing video games, and a Magikarp for hydrating and I got a Lapras for taking my pain meds and resting throughout the readathon. So I think overall I did very well on this readathon.
