I love this readathon, simply because it gives me a reason to pick up the longer books on my TBR I have been neglecting! I was able to read 3 tomes over the course of the two weeks, plus a couple other shorter reads but I’ll leave those for my monthly wrap up. I didn’t quite end up with a bingo for this round but I am still stoked with what I was able to accomplish!

The Count of Monte Christo by Alexandre Dumas – I looooved the movie and I really want to read the book but I just haven’t gotten my hands on it yet.

I’ve been going through and doing rereads of a few series that I haven’t picked up in years and since I just wrapped up The Heroes of Olympus series last month I thought I had better pick something to start next. The final book in this series is going to be released in a few months so I decided to do a reread of the Ember in the Ashes series by Sabaa Tahir! Its been about 2 years since A Reaper at the Gates was released so I am struggling to remember the finer details of the plot and I wanted to go into the last book freshly reminded of everything!
