#Believathon Wrap-up

This is the link to my original post for the Believe in the Impossible Readathon (Believathon). I can’t believe I actually finished this one – and slightly ahead of time. The only other Readathon I’ve taken part in was the #20BooksofSummer which I didn’t manage to complete although I did manage 14 books. I enjoyed every second of this one as it was a celebration of middle-grade books which I adore reading. I decided to read books in series for each of the challenges. Altogether, I read 12 books and have managed to post reviews for eight of them.

I intend to write reviews for the other four books as I really enjoyed them all, and will post them as soon as I can. I do have quite a lot of reading commitments at the moment including for some Blog Tours coming early in December, and I really need to catch up with my NetGalley approvals as I have some fantastic books waiting to read.

The books I have posted reviews for are:

  1. The Group book: Frostheart.
  2. A book featuring a myth or legend: The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander
  3. A book with a strong sense of friendship:  The Polar Bear Explorer’s Club by Alex Bell
  4. An atmospheric or creepy book: Potkin & Stubbs by Sophie Green
  5. A classic children’s story: The Children of Green Knowe by Lucy M Boston
  6. Re-read childhood favourite: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C S Lewis
  7. A book with real life issues: Ghost by Jason Reynolds
  8. A book set in the past: The Hunt for the Mad Wolf’s Daughter by Diane Magras.

The other prompts I completed, in the order I completed them are:

  1. A book with an animal character: The Gift of Dark Hollow by Kieran Larwood. I also read The Beasts of Grimheart as I just had to continue Podkin’s story
  2. A seasonal book: The Velvet Fox by Catherine Fisher
  3. A book featuring magic: A Witch Alone by James Nichol

Altogether, I read 3308 pages, an achievement I’m rather proud of! I really hope this is an annual Readathon as it is such a lovely way to celebrate middle-grade books and, whilst I’m already a fan, it has been lovely to see others who may not have read middle-grade in a while taking part in this challenge and really enjoying reading them. It has also made me want to take part in more Readathons as it brings a wonderful sense of belonging to this wonderful reading community.

Have you taken part in Believathon? How did you do? Do you have any other Readathon suggestions I can take part in?

  1. You did brilliantly! I didn’t manage as many – only 5! But I’d aimed for four in the hope of more, so not too bad. I definitely hope it becomes an annual thing!
