I'm aiming to post an update each day throughout the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon because I find them fun to look back over once it's all finished. I'll be including an update on my day (sometimes just about reading, other times about why I've not been reading), along with my thoughts on the books I've been reading and any challenge entries.
My DaySunday was pretty awesome. My eyes were still a little sore so I ended up trying to pace my reading out as much as possible, mostly so I didn't end up in the same situation with Under the Never Sky as I did with Last Sacrifice. No photo sadly as I totally forgot to take one :(
The BooksToday I read Under the Never Sky. I'd heard some awesome things about it, particularly this week from the other Bout of Books participants on twitter and honestly now I'm finished I'm not hugely sure what I think. I liked the characters and the world, and I thought Perry and Aria were sweet together. The story didn't quite suck me in like I expected though, and there was a lack of background information about the Unity which was missing (although it is included in Through the Ever Night and I'm not sure how it would have fit in here and avoided info-dumping). Chances are when I write my review it's going to come out as a low five/high four but I need to mull it over a bit more before then.
The Wrap Up
I've had an awesome time this week with the read-a-thon! All in all I read 7 full books with a total of 3032 pages which is insane. I also took part in two twitter chats and eight challenges, not to mention meeting loads of incredibly new peeps on twitter :)
