Hello everyone! As the title already mentions I’m going to end the #mythothon Readathon today. It still goes on until tomorrow but who am I even kidding? I definitely won’t successfully finish this readathon. I kind of failed because I wanted to complete at least one row of the bingo chart and guess what I didn’t. I kind of didn’t have a plan with which book to start and I found myself even DNF’ing one book because it wasn’t simply my thing or because I’m way too exhausted right now. I’m not sure why I DNF’ed that book because it rarely happens I usually read the book until the last page even though I don’t like it. But rest assured I didn’t count it for the Readathon as that would have been unfair!
Before I continue with this wrap-up I’m gonna explain the colour system which I’ll use for this wrap-up. I’m also not going to show you the covers of the books as they would take up too much space and the covers are already in the TBR announcement for the #mythothon Readathon. You can find the TBR announcement here in case you were wondering what books I wanted to read in each category! And now off to the explanations:

#11 – Dionysus. God of Wine. Celebrate this year by reading a 2018 release.
State of Sorrow – Sorrow #1 – Melinda Salisbury
Never in a million years would I have guessed that this book would become one of my favourites. And I’m so glad that it was in a Fairyloot box. But now I’m also kind of sad because I had to cancel my Fairyloot subscription a few months ago. Because I won’t get all these amazing books anymore. But nevermind this book was GOOD and I’d recommend it to everyone!
Rating – 5/5 – Review
#12 – Achilles and Patroclus. Read a book with an LGBT+ protagonist
Cloaked in Shadow – The Dragori #1 – Ben Anderson
I remember pre-ordering this book immediately when one of my favorite Booktubers told us that his book would soon be published. I was so excited about it when it came out but I’d never gotten the chance to read. And tadaa, I finally read it and it was amazing!!!
Rating – 4/5
#13 – Free Choice.
Ricochet – David A.Kennedy
An e-arc of this book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review and I also participated in a blog tour for this book. You can find the review here.
Rating – 4/5
#15 – Hephaestus. God of Fire and Smiths. Read a book with a disabled character.
The Perks of being a wallflower – Stephen Chbosky
So in total, I’ve only managed to read 4 books, I DNF’ed 1 book and I’m still reading 3 books. I have to say however that I also read other books that weren’t part of this TBR so I still had a great month. (That TBR will be up tomorrow, stay tuned!) If I’m only taking into account the page numbers of the books I’ve actually finished reading and these would be 1400 pages.
