#ReadThemAllThon Wrap-Up

I participated in the #ReadThemAllThon read-a-thon which was hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight. It lasted for three weeks and there were several challenges we had to attempt to complete. Unfortunately, I didn’t quite meet all of them – but oh well! It was super fun and I really enjoyed the added elements.

One of the things we did during this read-a-thon, was to select a Pokemon and various things got us CP which eventually evolved/levelled up out Pokemon. I started with an Abra – and by the end of the read-a-thon I had evolved it all the way to an Alakazam! Yay!

My Pokemon had a total of 540CP, which I think is a solid effort! Now, let’s have a look at the books that I read.


Fire & Flood
by Victoria Scott

I can’t believe how much I enjoyed this one. I’d had this book sitting on my shelf for a couple of years and am SO glad that I’ve now finally read it. It’s an awesome, action-packed dystopia that was brilliant on so many levels. I cannot wait to continue the series!

Carry On
Rainbow Rowell

This was, of course, amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed Fangirl so I just had to get some more Simon Snow in my life. Carry On was seriously amazing and I think I’m just going to have to re-read it again at some point. Baz and Simon are so ridiculously cute, it hurts. ARGH. I need more books, *prays that Rowell writes more*.

Orphan Train
by Christina Baker Kline

This was a gorgeous story! I really, really enjoyed it and I learnt something new from it too! Orphan Train was a story of healing, it has a dual perspective, one in contemporary time and one almost 100 years earlier. It’s a story about an orphan and her finding her place in the world. You really need to go and read this, it will tug at your heart strings.

Rebel Spring
by Morgan Rhodes

This was brilliant, as expected. I am officially a HUGE Rhodes fan because oh wow is this series getting good. I can’t wait to get the next book and continue the adventure because I’m super curious where things are headed. I’m definitely going to be reading everything else that Rhodes has written, that’s for sure.

The Snow Globe
by Jenna Nelson

This book was such a surprise! I’ve heard nothing about it prior to reading it, it’s not hugely popular on Goodreads, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! It takes place inside a world in a snow globe (yup) and there is magic and trickery and evil monarchs. Argh, it’s fantastic. There’s even a mysterious and very good looking lad there to help save the day. I definitely recommend giving this one a go if you like fantasy!

    1. Thank you, thank you *bows* I LOVED IT SO MUCH. Gah, just you wait until I get my review out of my brain – it was so good I can’t even. I’m going to buy the ENTIRE series (I say that as if there are more than three books) soon so I can binge read the rest of it. I need my baby Lee to be okay 💕😭😱💕
