Hi friends! I know that The Reading Rush is over for more than a week now. But being the lazy person that I was, I am only wrapping it up now. I can say that I am successful with this readathon even though I haven’t manage to finish all 7 books in a week. I might have done that if I have chosen shorter books but where’s the fun in that?
Anyways, here is a quick overview of how my Reading Rush went.
If I haven’t slacked off on day 4 and 5 I might have read more books than just 5. Also I have managed to accomplished a couple of the challenges. I really tried very hard for this readathon because I like the badges! So here are all the badges that I have acquired in this year’s Reading Rush.
I think it’s about time for the wrap-up! I haven’t posted my full reviews for all the books that I have read but it’s coming. So with that being said, let’s proceed with the wrap-up.

Half of the year is already over and I haven’t posted a wrap-up since; so I decided to do a semi-annual wrap up instead. So far, I’ve read 11 books. And I will list them all down below. I will also link the book review if I have one so be sure to check it out.
Now, let’s proceed to the wrap-up.

Hey guys! You’re definitely reading it right. I’m doing my January to March wrap-up just now. I wanted to do an April wrap-up because I read a lot of books last April but I’ll just do a quick wrap-up for the past three months.
January to March is not a good reading month for me. I only completed 4 books in a span of three months. And that, my friends, is the reason why I haven’t posted any wrap-up lately.
One out of all the four books that I finished in the first quarter of the year, I started way back in December. But I’m not that disappointed with myself because I decided to power-through The Complete Collection of Sherlock Holmes Volume 1. I finally finished it! Took me two years to finally finish the whole book instead of reading one short story at a time.
Anyway, without further ado, here are all the books that I finished reading in January, February and March:

Soooo… The reading decathlon was finished last August 25. I’m too ambitious to think that I can read 10 full novels or books in a span of 10 days. Sadly, I can’t. I managed to read 6 books. 5 full novels and 1 novella. I ended up being in a very short slump for 3 days out of 10 days and I’m only reading at night. I’m still proud of myself for finishing 6 books in 10 days.

I’ve been contemplating if I should post this wrap-up but why not? I managed to read almost 700 pages I think. Here’s my not so impressive wrap-up!
▪️I read the 1/3 of The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown which is my current reads before the booktubeathon starts. It’s 180 pages or more.
▪️I finished 1 book which is Hotel Ruby by Suzanne Young which is 288 pages. I also posted my review here. Just click this link if you want an in-depth thought about this book. (Book Review)
▪️And lastly, I managed to read 200 pages or more of A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin which I haven’t finish up until now.😔
For the reading challenge, I managed to complete two!
🔹 Read a book only after sunset
🔹 Read a book with yellow on the cover
Even though I’m not able to read 7 books in a week, I still enjoyed my time reading these books. How’s your booktubeathon guys?😊
Hey, guys! It’s time for my Summer Biannual Bibliathon Wrap Up! I’ve managed to read 3 books which are a good amount of books in 6 days. Sadly I only completed 5 or 6 challenges. Let’s get to it.
✖️ Read the Group Book – the group book is The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson. I’m not really in the mood for contemporary books plus the chapters of this book are 20+ pages! (I may have exaggerated a little.)
✔️ Wildcard – I choose Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. This is the first book that I’ve finished in this read-a-thon.
✔️ Read a Book of the Host’s Recommendation – I choose Emma’s recommendation, of emmmabooks on YouTube, which is More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera. I really enjoyed this book!
✔️ With Mythical Creature – I read Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie. Need I say more about the mythical creature? Ask Tinker Bell.
✔️ Read a Book that You’ve Been Putting Off – I’ve been putting off A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin for two months although I’ve already started it in April. I read this book, BUT I didn’t finish it. BUT IT’S PROGRESS. Plus I only need to READ it right? Not FINISH IT.😂
✔️ Read a Book from an Author that you haven’t read before – We can use one book for two challenges sooooooo I choose More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera AGAIN. I never read a book by Adam Silvera before this and I’m looking forward to reading more of his other books.
✔️ Read a Book from a different format – I listen to the audiobook of A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin but I’m too distracted so I read 2 chapters of it and listen to 3 chapters in audiobook format.
And would you look at that? I managed to complete 6 out of the 7 challenges. And now for the wrap-up!
