#JuneTopicAThon Wrap Up

The #JuneTopicAThon has come to an end, and I thought it would be fun to do a little recap of how I did. My topic was, as you may know, white books.

I made some notes of my progress during the week that I thought I would share.

Read a lot, but not for the readathon! I was finishing reading Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, so I didn't get around to reading any white books until Tuesday.

Day two and I already strayed from my TBR by starting This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I got 157 pages into that during the day. I read 23 pages of The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes in the evening before I promptly fell asleep.

Finished reading This Side of Paradise. Fell asleep with The Sense of An Ending on my lap, read about three sentences.

Finished reading The Sense of An Ending in the early afternoon. Started reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt and read 46 pages of this. I had not really realised this book is over 800 pages until I started reading, but am determined to finish this book pretty quickly.

I had huge plans to get at least halfway through The Goldfinch, but then I went on to Netflix and time just sort of... disappeared. I did read 139 pages of the book though.

The day has disappeared into trucking my way through The Goldfinch and I got a little over halfway through before I needed a break to do something else.

Finished The Goldfinch! Great book, but felt a bit drained after finishing. In need of something a bit lighter to read, I started reading One Hundred Poems from the Japanese by Kenneth Rexroth. I spent the evening finishing that, there concluding the readathon.

In the end, I read 4 books, totalling in 1421 pages.

In the end, I think I did pretty well! If you participated, do let me know what you read!
