Readathon Wrap Up: #SundayYAthon

So over the last week, I have taken part in two readathons which ran from the 28th August to 1st September which is #SundayYAthon. The SundayYAthon had three challenges which can be picked from the following picture. My TBR was posted on Twitter so you can see that here: 

So let's get started to see my progress...

I ended up reading 4 books as part of the readathon but only three of those books were on my TBR.
The first book that I finished was A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin which counted for the free choice feature of the readathon. I had already read over 400 pages before the readathon but I decided that I really wanted to finish it so thus the first book was completed. I really enjoyed A Game of Thrones although it was a little bit out of my comfort zone and I liked it so much that I am currently reading A Clash of Kings.  










After I finished A Game of Thrones, I moved on to Monstress which is a graphic novel set in 1900s China with a POC main protagonist which counted as a diverse read. I also really enjoyed this one, giving it 4 stars and for a fantasy graphic novel, I think the world building was done well. To be honest, I am going to love any book that has talking cats anyway so...











The third book that I read was Wing Jones by Katherine Webber which has been a book that was been highly praised since its release in January which is why it completed by Recommended Read category. Again I really enjoyed Wing Jones especially seeing her character develop as a person and the description of all the food in the book that I just want to eat. All of the characters were also well developed and just so likeable so like everyone else recommended me to read Wing Jones, I will now recommend it to you. 








The fourth and final book that I completed for the readathon was Moonrise by Sarah Crossan which comes out this week on Thursday. Moonrise is an emotional story about Jo whose brother is on death row in America which as you can guess makes a gripping story and you should see a review of this book soon on my blog. 












So that is my Wrap Up of #Sundayyathon. What did you read this weekend? Did you take part in a readathon last week?

See you soon, 

Amy

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
