June 24-Hour Readathon COMPLETE! // Day 1, Part 2

Injuries! Tea! Procrastination! This is the kind of content you and I have to endure when I go through a 24-Hour Readathon, and this time was no exception.

Yes, it’s true. I was slightly injured during this readathon. But not by a book, of course! My books would never hurt me.

Anyways, let’s get on with it. If you would like to see would happened during the first part of my Readathon, check out my Part 1 post!


AFTERNOON: 

4:51pm – I started back on Tithe again, and the following exchange happened between myself and I:

Me: Wait, where are the characters? What just happened? 

Me: *flips the page back to reveal a gruesome death*

Me: Ah, yes. Lovely. 

6:30pmTithe is finished! Finally! 😊 

I liked it, but I will also post a review soon! 

6:33-7:00pm – I had dinner, but… I don’t even remember what it was?

7:02pm – Continued with the audiobook of Hunting Prince Dracula.

Also, sometime during the first part of my Readathon, I discovered that I had accidentally listened to the latter half of HPD a few days ago, and it was very confusing. So it was very hard to keep track of how much I actually read, and how much of it was a re-listen. Oh well. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

7:30-8:30pm – I went on a walk with my family… and I ended up spraining my ankle. 🙃 (Serves me right for venturing outside.)

I stepped on a gap in the road, heard a loud crack, and them my ankle was never the same (for the rest of the readathon, that is).

I eventually hobbled back home and continued my reading with little to no pain. 👍🏼 I’m fine, it’s all fine. 

NIGHT: 

8:42pm – I started reading… Muse of Nightmares!

9:44pmAt this point, I was really getting sleepy! Like, I almost fell asleep on my book. So I made myself more tea. ☕️ (Page 50)

Have y’all seen my cute teacup?

11:24am*Internally screaming as Minya ruins everything for Lazlo and Sarai AGAIN* (page 104)

11:52am – I want SLEEP. 

12:03am – Yes, FINALLY, something happens to Minya. (page 129)

12:30-12:45am – My sprained ankle began to hurt, so I took a break to wrap it. I hope it helps? We’ll see in the morning.

(Hello, morning Xandra, here. It didn’t help very much.)

1:24am – I started hearing some weird, random noises around the house?

Me, already scared: I don’t know how much longer I’ll last. 

1:26am I swear, something just moved. There is no denying. 

1:45am – Is it me or are these chapters funnier than the ones in Strange the Dreamer? (page 187)

This one’s not even that funny, but it’s the only picture I took. 😂

2:06am – Ayy, it’s 2:06 and I’m on page 206!

2:50am – I need a break! 😫 (page 231)

3:10am – I’m tired, hungry, and sleepy. The sleep is calling me.

4:22am – Okay, okay. I’m doing it.

I’m going to sleep.

My ankle hurts, I’m hungry, and I’m already in bed. I might as well just… fall asleep.

Somehow, these Readathons turned into a documentation of me going through the day and occasionally reading, but hey! At least I kind of got a lot done!

Thanks for reading about my Readathon! And if you joined me, let me know! I’d love to hear about how your Readathon day went! 😀

  1. I have to know what possesses someone to do this… lol.

    I mean I’ve probably done this, but it usually involves a 800+ page book that I just can’t put down.

    Good job anyway! And sorry about your ankle!

  2. Oh no, I’m sorry to hear about your ankle! I managed to sprain mine three days into college (wow that was an Experience) and I remember how bad it was, I hope yours feels better soon!! As for the readathon, I loved participating and it was super fun to read your logs! I still haven’t decided if I am joining in Tuesday, it depends on how tired I am after work lol. I hope it goes super well for you either way though!!

  3. I hope your ankle gets better soon. I had one year when I seemed to constantly end up doing that /: well technically it was probably only a handful of times but after the third I was sick of it :L I also really need to check out Strange The Dreamer and Stalking Jack The Ripper sometime!!

    1. Thank you, Charlotte! Before this, I hadn’t sprained my ankle in about 8 years, so I can’t imagine spraining it three or more times in one year :/

      I highly recommend Strange the Dreamer! Stalking Jack The Ripper is also good, but it’s not for everyone 🙂

      1. Yeah I have no idea what went wrong for me that year :L I think it was where I was walking though. There were a lot of holes in the ground that were hidden by overgrown grass /:

        Thank you (: I’m really intrigued by it, especially as I love Laini Taylor’s writing! I’m hoping I’ll end up enjoying it from the quote that I’ve seen but I’ll have to wait and see.

        Hope your ankles okay now (:

  4. omg I love how you set this out! I’m doing a 24 hr readathon next week and I was so confused as to how to blog about it and this has really inspired me. You did great! Especially considering you was reading pretty intense books, I feel like I’ll need something really mushy and lighthearted to keep me going as I’m not sure I can do high fantasy all day lol
    Loved these posts and I hope your ankle gets better very soon ❤

    1. Thank you so much, Sarika! 💕 I can’t wait to see what happens on your readathon! I’m glad my post has inspired you 😊 And yeah, it would probably be a good idea to read something lighthearted! Fantasy can be tough to read for a long time! 😂 Good luck on your readathon!

  5. Oh no! I hope your sprained ankle is doing okay. Not to make a fuss, but the way you described the cracking sound made me cringe. I’m a wuss. 😂

    lol that Muse of Nightmares chapter is pretty hilarious. I recently read Good Omens (cheeky book about the end of the world), and that chapter heading could’ve fit right in. 😛

    Also, cute mug! I screamed “Hedwig” inside my mind when I saw it, although I know not everything has to be a Harry Potter reference lol.
