#CRAMATHON Wrap-Up & Mini Reviews


Hey guys!

       So, I said I was doing WhittyNovel's #CRAMATHON. I started out really well and then I kind of got into Doctor Who on the last day, and binge watched it all Sunday afternoon with my cousins and sisters. I was trying to read at least 4 or 5 books in the 3 days of the cramathon, and I managed to read 4 books, and 100 pages of Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Also, I actually just now realized that the cramathon went to Monday...and I thought it went to Sunday...oops haha. Honestly, I wouldn't have been able to read much on Monday anyway, because I was really busy. Here are the books that I read for the cramathon!




Ok, the first book I read was The Never Girls: In A Blink by Kiki Thorpe with my baby sister Bailey. Bailey wants to do another Q&A like she did with her Boxcar Children post. That post will be coming soon!

The second book I read was The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies. My cousin Ari gave me this book after he read it for his English class in third grade..and he hated it..I don't know if the whole thing happened where he didn't enjoy the book because he was forced to read it or if it just wasn't his thing but I thought it was super cute and I think I might read the second and third books just to see what happens next.

I went into Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover blindly, which means I had no idea what this was about, and I had no idea what this was going to turn out. All I knew was that Colleen Hoover's books are "really awesome", and I've only heard really great things. I really quite enjoyed it. I thought the whole concept was really interesting and the romance was really swoon-worthy. I really don't think I like the ending, but overall I really liked it.

The last book I read was Nimona by Noelle Stevenson. I had read this a week ago, but I really loved it so I decided to read it again for the cramathon. I'll have a joint post of all the graphic novels I had read in 2015, with mini reviews. So far, Noelle Stevenson's graphic novels have been my favorite graphic novels that I've read this this year. I really love her drawing style and I really love the humor that she puts into her novels. Her graphic novels are beautifully made.

I think, for my first cramathon, I did really well. I read 4 books in basically 2 days and I really enjoyed myself. Overall, I read 1,077 pages (including the 100 pages of Ready Player One). Comment down below if you participated in the cramathon and tell me what books you read and if you enjoyed them!

Enjoy guys!
