A Game of Booksathon & Simsathon | Progress Update #2


If you’ve seen my TBR post, or my first progress update, you’ll be well aware by now that I’m taking part in two readathons this month: A Game of Booksathon and Simsathon, based on A Song of Ice and Fire and The Sims respectively! Let’s not waste any time and just jump in to seeing how I did with my reading this past week, shall we?

Since last week I have finished Nevermoor (which I ADORED and promptly bought the sequel to read) and I’m still reading/listening to A Princess in Theory (54% listened to), and Ghostly Echoes (11% listened to). I’ve also started reading Fragile Things (I took the book with me to Scotland but read maybe 80 pages total?) and The Raven Boys (which is a re-read so will fly by quickly). Although I know I should just focus my attention on one book and finish it off, multitasking my reading is what has always helped me succeed with reading challenge in the past so I’m hoping that proves true this time too.

You might be able to tell that after last week’s slow start, this week has followed much the same pattern. I mentioned in my last progress update that I had a trip away planned and, true to form, I did very little reading on the holiday because I was too busy wandering around the Scottish highlands, hanging out with friends, and petting their adorable cockapoo puppy. Priorities, eh? This upcoming week should be quieter though and I don’t have much planned outside of the house so I’m hoping to catch up and get back on track with these readathons in the next few days.

Have you been taking part in Simsathon or A Game of Booksathon? How have you done so far? Even if you’re not participating, let me know what you have been reading this week because I’d love to know. Leave a comment below!
