We were so excited to participate in our very first read-a-thon – Tis the Season a Thon.  This is hosted by: @Crownsandquills @bookables1 @SuperSpaceChick @btwchapters and @chelseadolling   #tistheseasonathon

 The challenges were:

2. Read a book while listening to holiday music
3. Read a warm & fuzzy book
4. Read a short book (200-250 pages)
5. Read a holiday themed book

This is how we did:

Read a book with red or green on the cover :
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
Stunningly beautiful book. The prose was out-of-this world dreamy, I have no idea how people can write like that.  Loved the Indian Mythology aspect.  4/5

Read a book while listening to holiday music :
Pride by Ibi Soboi
I read this book while I had sounds of firelogs crackling in the background.  I’m noise sensitive so I couldn’t do actual music.  This book was sadly a huge disappointment – a highly anticipated one for me that I really didn’t enjoy.  2/5

Read a warm & fuzzy book:
Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
I only finished half of this but I will likely finish the other half in the next night.  This is a reread for me and I adore the story.  5/5

Read a short book (200-250 pages) & Read a holiday themed book:
The Last of Spirits by Chris Priestley
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to this book at all.  I do still intend to read it this month though.

So I did better than I thought I would, it kinda helped that I stayed home two days. I was able to complete 4 out of 5 challenges and I’m pretty happy with that. Here s what I read:

Read a book with red or green on the cover :
The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi
I really enjoyed this book, it was refreshing to read an Indian based fantasy.
4/5

Read a book while listening to holiday music & Read a warm & fuzzy book: : 
Quiet Girl in a Noisy World by Debbie Tung
This graphic novel was just the cutest ever. Super fast read and very relatable.
5/5

Read a short book (200-250 pages):
A Quick and Easy Guide to Queer and Trans Identities by Mady G & JR Zuckerberg
This was a very interesting and informative read. For anyone wishing to learn a bit more about Queer and Trans identities this book is a really good starting point.
3/5

Read a holiday themed book : 
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
This is the only challenge I wasn’t able to finish unfortunately. Will probably read it later this month.

Did you participate in this read-a-thon? How did you do? Let us know!

  1. Great job on your challenge. That’s a bummer that Pride wasn’t a better read for you. I love P&P so I’m definitely planning to read it at some point. I may lower my expectations going into it now though.
