Synopsis: The Rosie Project follows Don Tillman, a middle-aged, socially awkward, brilliant college genetics professor on a quest to see if he can find true love.

Booktubeathon Wrap Up

Booktubeathon has ended, and I'm pretty sure I have never read so much in my life. Although I didn't complete all the challenges (which I knew going into it that I wouldn't, but I was going to try), I am still really pleased with how I did! If you're interested, here is  my final tally:

Number of Challenges Completed: Five

Read a book with a person on the cover (Always and Forever, Lara Jean)Read a book in one day (Lord of the Flies)Read a hyped book (A Darker Shade of Magic)Read a cover buy (The Rosie Project)Read a book with characters different from you (Lord of the Flies)Total Pages Read: 1,255!! I literally could not believe this because I read at the pace of a sloth.
Total Number of Books Read: Four Inserted here is a picture of all the books I read (and loved) during the Booktubeathon! The only downer was Lord of the Flies, I was very much not a fan. 
If you would like, you can read my Booktubeathon TBR as well if you haven't already! I hope you were successful…
