These are the books I was able to finish for this week:

  • The Winter Witch by Paula Brackston (review)

My Thoughts

Woah! I was able to squeeze in three more books on the last minute. :D

I am glad that I was able to read and listen to as much as I did. I was not able to finish The Martian, which I started on the last week of December, but I'm not too worried. I'll eventually finish it sometime this upcoming week. I'm just glad that I was able to listen to 2 audios, read 2 books from my TBR pile/shelves, and 1 book from the library. All of these books counted for different challenges that I signed up for 2017. So, achievement!!!

How did the read-a-thon go for you?


  1. Wow, impressive!! You did awesome this round of BOB!! That's cool that you read five books. I am looking forward to reading your review of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling.

    I finished reading and reviewing four books this week, which was my goal, Additionally, I started an audiobook today titled Juliet Takes A Breath by Gabby Rivera. Gabby Rivera is a new to me author and a book club pick for Bustle's 2017 American Woman Book Club. It's a really good read so far.

    1. I know! I surprised myself as well! My review for Fantastic Beasts is up, if you're interested. Going to be stopping at your blog soon. :)

  2. Awesome job! I know the BoB readathon goes so fast! I still need to read Fantastic Beasts, but I am not for sure if the format will make it difficult or not. Hope you enjoyed it!

    1. It went by so fast!!!
      The format for Fantastic Beasts is not hard. It's a very easy read. It all depends if you like reading screenplays.

  3. Congrats on your reading goal! I need to read the Martian myself!
