1. What are you reading right now?
I just started Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge by Paul Krueger; technically I’m also at the beginning parts of both Only Ever Yours by Louise O’Neill and Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado.
2. How many books have you read so far?
I finished one book (That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnston) and have read bits of two others. Technically, I also read the first 1-2 pages of a lot of books since I was having a hard time figuring out what I was in the mood for next.
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
I think my main focus with be on Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge, although I may mix it up with an audiobook when I get tired.
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Not really interruptions…I did take a break after finishing That Inevitable Victorian Thing to work out and eat dinner, and I’ve been taking lots of social media breaks as well.
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
I’m surprised that I slept so poorly and woke up feeling stressed! Readathons are not supposed to be stressful; even if my stress had nothing to do with the readathon, I’m surprised that reading didn’t relax me more. I’m also surprised that I’ve been having so much trouble deciding what to read, as that’s what TBR piles are for. After I finished my first book, I was kind of at a loss and kept picking things up and realizing I didn’t want to read them.
