June is ending, so that means the ReadaThon is ending too. Sad Face.
I was able to get through quite a few books on this challenge:
- Walden by Henry David Thoreau
- Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant by Anne Tyler
- Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
- The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
- Divergent by Veronica Roth
- Raven Stole the Moon by Garth Stein
- Aimless Love by Billy Collins
- Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor
- Brooklyn by Colm Tobin
- Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor
I also started The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux, She Walks in Beauty by Caroline Kennedy, and listened to a few more chapters of Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy.
By reading these books, I completed quite a few challenges on Trees’ challenge list. I did way better this time than on her last prompt list, so I’m pretty psyched about it.
