Summer Biannual Bibliathon Reading Wrap Up

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.

Reading Challenges:

✖️ 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!

“It’s okay how some stories leave off without an ending. Life doesn’t always deliver the one you would expect.”

SYNOPSIS:
In the months after his father’s suicide, it’s been tough for 16-year-old Aaron Soto to find happiness again–but he’s still gunning for it. With the support of his girlfriend Genevieve and his overworked mom, he’s slowly remembering what that might feel like. But grief and the smile-shaped scar on his wrist prevent him from forgetting completely. 

When Genevieve leaves for a couple of weeks, Aaron spends all his time hanging out with this new guy, Thomas. Aaron’s crew notices and they’re not exactly thrilled. But Aaron can’t deny the happiness Thomas brings or how Thomas makes him feel safe from himself, despite the tensions their friendship is stirring with his girlfriend and friends. Since Aaron can’t stay away from Thomas or turn off his newfound feelings for him, he considers turning to the Leteo Institute’s revolutionary memory-alteration procedure to straighten himself out, even if it means forgetting who he truly is. 

Why does happiness have to be so hard?
