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.

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.

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.

Cerulean Gym: 24 Hour Readathon

I’m taking part in Jadeyraereads Pateron exclusive 24 Hour readathon based on catching Pokemon via reading books, I was just recently told about this on Discord by two lovely people who aren’t on Twitter. This weekend we are taking on the Cerulean Gym so we are catching water Pokemon. I’m not going to try to do all the prompts because I know I won’t finish but I’m going to do as many as possible.

Squirtle-A Blue Cover

When I found out we were doing this readathon I went out and had to find something cool with a blue cover. I’ve never read this book but it’s a fantasy and it looks really good. Plus fighting princesses are always awesome.

Amazon: Shielded

Swim Team

A splashy, contemporary middle grade graphic novel from bestselling comics creator Johnnie Christmas!

Bree can’t wait for her first day at her new middle school, Enith Brigitha, home to the Mighty Manatees—until she’s stuck with the only elective that fits her schedule, the dreaded Swim 101. The thought of swimming makes Bree more than a little queasy, yet she’s forced to dive headfirst into one of her greatest fears. Lucky for her, Etta, an elderly occupant of her apartment building and former swim team captain, is willing to help.

With Etta’s training and a lot of hard work, Bree suddenly finds her swim-crazed community counting on her to turn the school’s failing team around. But that’s easier said than done, especially when their rival, the prestigious Holyoke Prep, has everything they need to leave the Mighty Manatees in their wake.

Can Bree defy the odds and guide her team to a state championship, or have the Manatees swum their last lap—for good?

Poliwag-A middle grade

The Keeper

Because I needed something scary on this list and this is also a middle grade I’m adding the Keeper on here. I think I can finish this in 24 hours along with Shielded.

Amazon: The Keeper

Cloyster-A Graphic Novel

Coming Back

This book is beautiful and I’ve been wanting to read it for awhile I got it on Netgalley but I managed to let it expire so I’m glad I at least get a chance to read it. I’m excited to read it for the 24 hour readathon as it looks like a comfort read.

Amazon: Coming Back

Shellder-A Comic

Sheets

Finally for the comic I’m choosing Sheets, I’ve wanted to read it for awhile but just haven’t around gotten a chance to do it.

I’m going to do Kingler and buy a book tomorrow probably a polar fantasy so I can use it for Realm a Thon.

Other the that I’m going to do all the self care prompts for the Cerulean Gym like Goldeen-Treat Yourself, Magikarp-Hydrate, and Lapras-Self Care. I’m going to try and take out as many prompts as I can without burning myself out. I’m also I’m probably going to chill on the Discord. But overall I think the Cerulean Gym will be a good opportunity to get reads in for me.
