Reading + Writing Update – BookTubeAThon Days 6 +7

I have been TERRIBLE at updating y’all on my reading progress this readathon, but it is the last day of the BookTubeAThon and I am here to update you all on what I did manage to get done.

The last few days have just been a weird type of busy. I haven’t been productive whatsoever, but it has been a blur of going out with friends and kind of being social. Sadly, my reading and writing suffered because of it, and I did not get nearly as much done this week as I hoped…First off, I never did finish Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman but I am about 200 pages in and in love with it. Hopefully I will be able to finish the last half of it early this coming week, because there are so many books I am anxious to get to in the last few weeks of my summer vacation: The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater, Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, Love & War by Melissa De La Cruz…yeah the list goes on and on. I did get four and a half books read this readathon though, which is more than I would read any other week so I am not too upset about that. The books I did manage to finish were:

  • Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire – 4/5 stars
  • Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins – 4.5/5 stars
  • City of Bones by Cassandra Clare – 4.5/5 stars
  • Fullmetal Alchemist Volume One by Hiromu Arakawa – 4/5 stars

As for writing…I think I only wrote like 7k words this week which is a lot less than what I usually write, but still better than nothing. I am almost 70k deep into my current WIP which is crazy and I am so, so excited to keep inching closer to the end. I have not written in like three WHOLE days which is crazy, and I am itching to write, but I know my creative well really needed a lengthy creative break. Apart from my WIP, I also wanted to have a short story written and then jump into edits this coming week, however that definitely did not happen. There were a lot of gaps in my outline of it so I am going to go back and reshape it before attempting to write it again this week. Hopefully it will go quicker than the first attempt, because I really do want to have a good handful of short stories ready to send around by the end of August!

Anyways, that is all I have to update you on and I hope you enjoyed following me along my BookTubeAThon 2018 journey! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post, as well as all my social media accounts which are linked down below. Thanks for reading 🙂
