I failed. Again. But this time was way worse than my first and I’m so disappointed in myself! I tried I really did, but my social life got in the way and I didn’t even finish one book in this readathon, I finished the book I was reading a day late and I’m so annoyed with that fact.
I loved the challenges set for the Booktube-A-Thon but I think we all know I was never going to read seven books in a week. I didn’t even get chance to start reading a book at night because for some reason I wasn’t reading in the evening so I missed out on that challenge. Being a single book reader also doesn’t help as I won’t start another book until I’ve finished the one, so not finishing the book I was reading originally until after the week is over did not help!
I think I’ve come to the realisation that unless I can lock myself away from the world in a room full of books, then I probably aren’t going to do great in readathons. I keep getting distracted by my dog, my mom, my friends and loads of other things, so much so that I couldn’t find any time to just sit down and read. It seems that I need a lot longer than a week to try and complete the challenges set for readathons unfortunately!
I am sad I didn’t do well on this readathon because the challenges were really fun and I had some great books lined up but I will get to them all at some point no matter what! And I’m not letting it dishearten me or put me off readathons forever, I’m just going to choose the readathons I join more wisely in the future.
How did you do in the Booktube-A-Thon? Did you complete any of the challenges? Are you as bad at readathon’s as I am? Let me know in the comments!
