BorrowAThon 2017 Round 2 Wrap Up

Last week was round 2 of the 2017 BorrowAThon (@Borrowathon). I had a lot of fun participating and meeting fellow readers even though I only finished reading two books. It ran from March 19 thru March 26 and the objective is read borrowed books, whether from the library or a friend. There is also a set of six challenged that you can optionally do, which I tried.

The first challenge is Try before you buy, which I planned on reading Spinster: Making A Life Of One’s Own by Kate Bolick but I abandoned it. I think it’s a nonfiction memoir type of book and I’m not that into those.

Next is A Graphic Novel which I read and finished Smile by Raina Telgemeier. I really liked this book.

Another challenge was Try a New-to-you author which I tried to read Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi but I abandoned it. It was sort of a stream of consciousness book mixed with a plot which I couldn’t get into. The writing style was lovely, though.

Next challenge is A book recommended to you which was Shelter by Jung Yun but I didn’t get to that week. But I finished it this week. I will discuss it in my March 2017 Reading Wrap Up post.

Next is A book with your favorite color on the cover, which was While Mortals Sleep by Kurt Vonnegut (It has a purple cover, my favorite color!). I didn’t get to this book but I would like to someday read a Kurt Vonnegut book.

And lastly, A book that involves a library in some way, which I read The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami.

I will talk a little more about the books I read during the Borrowathon in my March 2017 Reading Wrap Up post next week. I really had a lot of fun participating in Borrowathon and meeting new people, doing Twitter chats and sprints. I can’t wait until Round 3 which is in November. Borrowathon was created by Riley (@rmfickfack). I’m so grateful for her taking time to host as well as Lala (@ObbsandLala).

Did you participate in the Borrowathon? If so, what was your favorite book?

Thank you for visiting my blog,
Nora
