Day 2 in My 24-Hour Readathon Series! // “Great 1st Books” (Shadow and Bone) update #1

Hello, friends! Who’s ready to see me attempt yet another 24-hours of reading! 

*crickets in the background because everyone I know is asleep*

Let’s get started! 


5:00am  This time around, I woke up at 5am because I knew I needed more sleep than last time. On my first 24-hour Readathon, I was running on 3 hours of sleep. 3 HOURS! No thank you, that is no way to live. 

So I gave myself 5 hours this time. 

But I had a bit of a dilemma trying to figure out which book I should read. Sure, I have plenty of books lying around, but most of them were not great 1st books, you know? 

I eventually decided to read Shadow and Bone. I had been trying to save it for my “Trilogy Time” Readathon, but I don’t think I’ll have time to read the WHOLE trilogy. I might as well get started now! 


5:25am I have my snacks and I am ready to munch!

(I actually decided to finish Broken Things instead, because I had only about 60 pages left.)

6:00am – I just finished Broken Things! And… What did I just read? What is life? I don’t know how I feel…

6:20am – Okay, I officially started Shadow and Bone, and I got up to make some coffee ☕️

7:30am – (page 40) Is it too soon to say I’d do anything for Mal?

9:45am – I got distracted and started to watch some booktube instead 😆 whoops

9:30am I made more coffee! ☕️ 

10:48am I know this has nothing to do with the book, but I strange bird started making noises near my window and I got scared 😆 

10:55am – So I was dying to know what a kefta looked like, so I Googled it and all I got was a bunch of meats! 😆 (and then I searched “kefta clothing” and found what I was looking for)

11:40am – At this point, I’m not on the edge of my seat or anything. I mean, I still want to know what happens next, but it’s a little slow.

12:20pm – I made myself some soup! (and also some tea!☕️)

1:00pmWhen will something happen? (page 190)

And then: (page 196)


2:00pm – I’m not finished (or anywhere near that) with the book, but I need a break! (page 243)

For some reason I keep getting distracted by things! So I decided to switch to my next book – A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro. I’m listening to the audiobook, and I like the book, but not the guy narrating it. I’ll read the physical version when I finish this post!

I’m currently on Chapter 2, and so far there’s already been a murder (!)


That’s all for now! I will post my next update whenever I get the chance! 😀
