Today is the last day of the ebook-a-thon! Unfortunately, I did not complete all of the books that were on my TBR, but I did manage to read 3 ebooks during the week.
The Best American Poetry 2018 by Dana Gioia
I started off the week with this ARC because I knew it would be a quick read for me and it would help me get start this read-a-thon on the right foot! I finished it quickly, but unfortunately did not really enjoy it very much. There were a few good poems in the collection, but as a whole, it really disappointed me.
All the Things We Lost by Kayla Tirrell
Next, I picked up another ARC (there is obviously a theme here, haha) that I wanted to get done. I honestly can’t even tell you what it was about because I already forgot. That’s how un-memorable it was. I think I only gave it about 2 stars, so even though I was getting some reading done, the read-a-thon wasn’t going too well.
A Poet’s Notebook: Stewart Henderson
Finally, I began this book- another ARC. I have been really behind on Netgalley, so I felt guilty picking up anything other than an ARC this week. I actually DNF’d this book because it was so painfully boring. Each chapter begins with a story, description, or some other anecdote and is followed by a poem by the author. It is supposed to be a look into the writing process and where inspiration comes from for poets. However, I skipped all of the chapter introductions and just read the poems, because I really wasn’t interested.
Overall, my reading week was a bit of a bust considering all of the books I read were 3 stars or less. However, I am glad I got to 3 different ARCs at least!
Did any of you participate in this read-a-thon? Let me know how it went for you if you did :)
