#24in48 Readathon Wrap Up

Hi, readers!

I mentioned last week that I was participating in the #24in48 Readathon over the weekend. You can read my TBR post here, where I also shared more about the challenge and my thoughts on readathons overall. Even though I didn’t read for anywhere close to 24 hours, I am proud of how much reading I did do this weekend!

Let’s talk about the books I read…

First, I finished The Strays by Emily Bitto. I’ll have a review post coming soon for this book but I will say now that I enjoyed it but didn’t love it. At 238 pages, this book is a quick and easy read. The Strays is a moving story about female friendship, growing up, and growing out.

Second, I finished No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean. I had several hundred pages to go in finishing this one, and it was a delight to finish it this weekend. This is the third book in the Rules of Scoundrels series and I found this one to be a little slow to start. I liked it overall and I’ll share a full review soon.

Third, I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. It’s been years since I read this book and I’m planning to do a reread of the series this year! This was a quick and easy read because it’s technically a middle grade book, and I enjoyed it immensely. I’m going to hold off on reviewing any of the Harry Potter series until I’ve reread all seven and then I’ll do one larger series review post.

Fourth, I started Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I’m almost halfway through this one and expect to finish it within the next two days. Again, this is a quick read so I’m flying through it!

That’s all for today! Did you participate in the #24in48 Readathon over the weekend? What books did you read?
