Wrap-up: Thanksgiving Readathon

Thanksgiving Readathon

Hi Munchworms!

Ottavia @ Novels & NonFiction and Jackie @ Death by Tsundoku hosted their first ever Thanksgiving Readathon!
As you know, I joined in, but… how did it go?


Firstly, I still had to finish my current read at that time, being Songlines.

Songlines (The Sentinels of Eden, #1)

I read one of the eARC’s that I still had to get to after that!

This Heart of Mine

And last but not least, I got to tick off one of my Popsugar Reading Challenge prompts!

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)


Since I had to go to my boyfriend’s grandfather’s funeral on Friday, I just have to say that right now I’m most thankful that he had a good and long life. I’m thankful that I have a good life myself, that I have fun, that I can mainly do the things I want to do and love to do. We often only realize this when we’re confronted with death but it’s important to be reminded of that once in a while. Live your life in a way you can be proud of.
Apart from that, I’m honestly thankful that I got to make a two week road-trip this year. It’s something I wanted to do for years and having finally done it… Feels amazing to scratch something off your bucket list!
I’m also thankful for my family, my mom and brother. Although I see them less than I used to, I know they’re always there when I need to talk to them. I’m thankful that they’re both still healthy, happy and living their lives the way they want to.
I’m thankful for all the memories I got to make, the concerts I went to, the books I read, everything. Sure, there were hard times but those only reminded me of the good ones and made the good ones even better.
And, maybe I should say that I’m ridiculously thankful that I started this blog because I wouldn’t have met a lot of amazing people otherwise!

Here’s to hoping next year is at least as amazing as this year was!

    1. It’s true that there’s a lot going on. At first I did have to go back a couple of times when I wasn’t sure who a certain character was anymore, but after a while it went perfectly fine.
      Too bad you didn’t enjoy it that much!

  1. Awwww that is a lovely list to be thankful for! While funerals aren’t pleasant it is satisfying to know when it is a person who lived long and happily for the most part. And a 2 week road trip sounds so fun ❤ And 2.5 is really good for a week reading – at least for me 😉 – Congrats Kathy!

    1. Thank you!
      It is, isn’t it?
      It was definitely fun! Although I don’t know if I’ll do it again any time soon because all the driving around is definitely tiring as well, haha. I think I got home more tired than I was when I left, which is saying a lot. A lazy, beachy vacation might just be something I’d enjoy more for our next holiday.

      Thank you! 🙂


    1. We do!
      Thank you!! It was gooood! Which reminds me that I still have to finish my review but that’ll be something for one of these evenings – whenever I actually feel like it because I’m seeing some overtime in my future.. :’)
