I Participated In My First Readathon: Here’s How It Went

Many of you know that I am a huge fan of the YouTube Channel Peruse Project. Last week, Regan announced that she was doing a readathon. Of course, I was going to participate in that.

The TBR: The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah and Tweet Cute by Emma Lord.


I started on Friday. I was already reading the Great Alone, so I continued doing that. At that point, things were beginning to happen in that book so it was easy to get engaged in the book. I read for a bit in the morning, and then I did some work for work. After that, I did go ahead and get some groceries which was an ordeal.

Once I finished, I did go ahead and alternated by reading and crocheting the entire night.


Reading during the morning has been a habit of mine for many years, so I got up and continued to read The Great Alone. I also had to go to the bank, which I did once I finished breakfast.

When I came home from the bank, I went ahead and finished the Great Alone. As a side note, I really loved the book and if you’re looking for an amazing read to escape from the craziness of what’s going on now, I highly recommend it. I knew then that I deserved a break, so I decided to put the book down for the time being.

That said, it was really nice out, so my boyfriend and I went to the beach and did a mile long walk. We also stopped at Walmart to get Animal Crossing, and got takeout.

Once we got back from our adventures, I did begin Tweet Cute on the way home. And for the rest of the night, I pretty much alternated from reading and playing Animal Crossing.


Not much to report here. Sunday was a mixture of cleaning (Sunday is usually my cleaning day), laundry, crocheting, and reading. I did finish Tweet Cute on Sunday night, and it was the perfect uplifting easy read. I decided at that point, I wasn’t going to start another book, so I went ahead and ended it there.

Overall, the readathon was a great way to make a dent in my reading list. The Great Alone was on my mashed potato reading list, so I am really happy that I was able to get through it as well. I also loved both books, and am now currently researching more of Kristin Hannah’s backlog.

Have you participated in a readathon? If so, what was it like?
