🏴‍☠️ Scallywagathon Wrap Up 🏴‍☠️

I had a lot of fun during the course of this readathon. Unfortunately I didn’t end up completing the four books I had picked that corresponded to the path that I ended up taking I only read three…. I went backwards and started from 9: Black Sails to A: Washed Ashore and then 6: Bawdy Songs I just didn’t have enough time to finish off with 1: Captain’s Cabin! I did end up changing my TBR a little from what I posted but I completed some great books!!

9: Has a black cover- The Weight of Stars by K. Ancrum

A: A book published 3+ years ago – Binti by Nnedi Okarafor

6: Has Romance – Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron

Tome Topple Round 12 Wrap Up

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!

🏴‍☠️ Scallywagathon 🏴‍☠️

When I came across the announcement video for the Scallywagathon I couldn’t help but want to participate so here I am lol… As usual I will be picking a book to correspond to each prompt and depending on which path I choose I will inevitably end up with four books that I should complete. I’m not going to pressure myself to finish them all though, it’s just about participating and promoting a fun readathon! For any information please check out their website HERE!
