Olympic Games read-a-thon results

Hey there, and welcome back to the blog!

As has become a theme this year, I’ve been participating in a lot of read-a-thons. During the month of June, I actually participated in 2 so I wanted to update you on how the first one went. 

The Olympic Games was a month-long read-a-thon themed after the Percy Jackson series/greek mythology. Depending on which cabin you belonged to, you had to complete different prompts and once that was done, you could attempt to take part in the advanced challenges, which were also catered specifically to your cabin. 

I was in cabin 8, honoring the goddess Artemis. I was so excited for this themed read-a-thon that I actually convinced my sister to take part as well. She’s also a big Percy Jackson fan, so this got her back into reading. 

Now to the challenges and the books I read to fulfill each one:

As you can see, some books in my TBR changed but I knew this might happen. I’m usually terrible at sticking to my planned TBR, but at least I managed to read all books required. With that, I can say that this read-a-thon was a success! I had a blast and really enjoyed participating in a read-a-thon with my sister for the first time ever. We can get very competitive, so we both completed this one (although she went on to complete ALL the advanced challenges that were available, not just her cabin’s). 

Are you participating in any read-a-thons this month? 

Until next time,

juli
