Pages Read: 4
Books Finished: none

Notes: Honestly, I don't know why I even say I'm going to do a weekend RAT. It never happens.

message 39: by Cathrine (last edited May 21, 2018 02:34AM) (new)

Cathrine | 46 comments I had planned to finish Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets before this read-a-thon started, but I read past midnight yesterday, so I guess parts of it has to be included here...

TBR:
A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3.1) by Sarah J. Maas Artemis by Andy Weir

Saturday:
- Finished Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets (last 70 p.).
- Started reading A Court of Frost and Starlight (read 30 p.)

Sunday:
- Read 90 p. in A Court of Frost and Starlight

Total pages read: 190
Books finished: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2) by J.K. Rowling

Final thoughts:
I had hoped to finish ACOFAS and start Artemis, but ended up not being able to read as much as I had hoped. I'm sort of stretching the read-a-thon one more day, since it's Whit Monday, and we have the day off from work where I live. (I won't be logging what I read Monday, though.)
