Commentary:

I completed all the challenges for #booktubeathon! I am so happy! It didn’t quite work out with my original set TBR (I didn’t get to Tokyo Vice, but it was the only book I didn’t get to) and I read more than I expected myself to. I’ll definitely be doing this event again, but I had some very good and productive reading days. I finished the Summer trilogy, which I thought was all right — I didn’t love it as much as I thought I did, but some of the character changes within each book was a bit too jarring for my tastes (Especially Jeremiah the cheater! That came out of left field considering his previous characterization). Still, I liked Han’s prose a lot and I am going to check out her newest book.

I am also said that I finished the Grisha Trilogy, and I feel like it’s going to be hard for me to say goodbye to that world since I’m still thinking about it. I also loved ALL the graphic novels I read during the week, and I think they are all worth checking out.

But for now, I am pooped. Have an awesome Monday!
