READ-A-THON| #TBRTakedown 4.0 Wrap Up

In total over the week that TBRTakedown took part I read the grand total of four books! I only set out to read three.

The challenges: 

1. A book that's been on your TBR shelf over a year!
2. An unread sequel sitting on your TBR shelf!
3. A first book in a series on your TBR shelf!
4. An "out of your comfort zone" book on your TBR shelf
5. A book from your most recent haul.
First I got to:

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files 0_1)
Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff


Find on Goodreads


This was a little cheat- I was already 200 pages into Illuminae before that midnight strike. So I only really read 399 pages.

This covers the challenges 3,4 and 5. Sci-fi is just rarely my thing.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter #2)
J.K. Rowling


I refuse to write a review.

I bought this as a birthday present to myself because I have never owned a full set of the Harry Potter books. Slowly, I will collect these and display them on my phantom bookshelf. 

All in their Hardback glory!

Completes challenges 2 and 5.

Naomi Novik


Find on Goodreads

Review to come!!

Another book that has been on my "Currently-reading" list on Goodreads for what seems like an age.

But, I am glad I finished this. It was just fabulous and a stand-a-lone that I would only wish has a sequel.

*looks up fanfiction*

Completes challenges 1.

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha Trilogy #1)
Leigh Bardugo


Review to come!!

Not sure what to feel on this book. My thoughts will have to be discussed in my review. But this was a book and series that I will be trying to complete by the end of summer- I'm 1/3 of the way there already!!

This completes the challenge 1 and 3.


For the first time ever I completed all the challenges.

So in total I finished four books with the grand total page count of: 1,715..

Granted I did start a couple of books before the actual read-a-thon. It's a give or take number.

This was fun, let's do it again some time.
