It is Tuesday which means it is day 4 of the summer Biannual Bibliothon! While yesterday wasn’t the best reading day, today was a lot better so that makes me very, very happy. However, I am still one book behind and that means I have to read TWO whole books tomorrow in order to catch up, but I am feeling optimistic.
My main task for today was to finish reading The Light Between Worlds by Laura E. Weymouth, a book very similar to Narnia. I started it yesterday and left myself about 200 pages to read today, and I am happy to say that I finished it! I went into this book knowing little to nothing, and was SO pleasantly surprised. This was a haunting, whimsical, and beautiful fantasy book that is about family ties and finding yourself in a world that you feel lost in. The writing style was magical yet also simple but descriptive at the same time…I don’t know how to explain it really, but I loved it! The characters were so real and so vivid in my mind, and I liked them each for different reasons. Ugh, it was so good. I ended up flying through the last almost half of the book, and gave it a 4.5/5 stars because yeah, it was that amazing!
Next I was planning on picking up Legend by Marie Lu. It wasn’t originally on my TBR but I wanted to pick it up because a) it is only 300 pages and b) I needed a seventh book to complete all the challenges for the Biannual Bibliothon. However, I made the smart decision to continue reading The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, the second book in The Raven Cycle because in order to read Blue Lily Lily Blue, one of the books on my readathon TBR, I needed to finish this one. So, after finishing The Light Between Worlds, I picked it up and flew through the last 150 or so pages in one sitting. To be fair, I did listen to about 40 of those pages via audiobook, but the rest I just sat down and finished. It was a GREAT addition to the series and even though it was not part of my TBR, I thought I would still talk about it in my update. The characters and relationships are fantastic, as well as the setting of Henrietta, Virgina, and overall, the book definitely gets a 4 or 4.25/5 stars!
That was my reading update for today, and I will be back tomorrow with a brand new blog post as well as another reading update for day 5! Wow, day 5. This readathon is just whizzing by but I am so pleased with all I have gotten read, and all the fun I have been having. Let me know what you are reading right now, readathon or not, because I would love to know!
