Reading Challenges

24in48 Readathon |1

Hey guys, I did my first readathon and I survived, yaaay! If you read my last post you know I talked about doing a readathon. 24in48 readathon happened from 27th 12am to 28th 11:59pm, and basically participants read for 24hrs out of the 48hrs.

My tbr included:

  • Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
  • Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
  • The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  • Beauty and the Beast and Other Classic Stories

Halfway through the readathon I added The Truth of Things by Tasha L. Harrison

By the end of the readathon I had read 3 books for a total of 10hours.

The first book I finished was

1.Beauty and the Beast and Other Classic Stories. 4/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

– 4 authors, 17 stories. There was quite a selection of stories to read.

– the book is quite entertaining, and very nostalgic. These are stories I read when I was younger and to read them again, it was amazing!

2. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott 5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I LOVED this book so much. It’s full of charm and wit. The story is wholesome and the characters loveable. Easily became a favorite of mine.

3.The Truth of Things by Tasha l Harrison 4/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Such a heartfelt book that made me laugh and cry at the same time. I enjoyed reading it quite a lot.

By hour 10 I was really tired and I had other things to do so I opted to stop there. As I said, it was my first readathon and I loved the experience, definitely its something I would do again.

Have you done a readathon before? If yes, How was your experience? Know of any upcoming readathons? Tell me about it in the comments section.

Happy Thursday! ❤

  1. Glad to hear that you enjoyed your first readathon and you did great finishing 3 books! I haven’t participated in a readathon in a long while, I will probably participate in the ReadathonbyZoe on March 3th, which is a 24h readathon.

  2. I love your Collins Classics Collection, have you visited any Text Book Centre outlet in Nairobi for them, because they do have quite some amazing collections. I got a copy of Jane Eyre at the TBC at The Hub.
    The 24hr readathon sounds fun. I’ll give it a try some time.

  3. i love your book choices! I have Little Women but haven’t read it yet, and i honestly can’t wait. Also, I’d love to do a readathon but I’m afraid i would disappoint myself and not read as much as I hope i would!
