#cramathon, TBR and progress

Hi guys! I've been looking for some readathons these last couple of months and apparantly everything  is happening in July and August so there's going to be a great amount of readathons these two months! I just recently discovered #cramathon, which is a readathon Whitney from whittynovels is hosting. #cramathon runs from July 10th at 12 AM midnight (your time zone) - July 13th at 11:59 PM (your timezone). I'm probably going to read for the majority of the day tomorrow anyway so I'll just make my readathon longer. 

There's also some challenges, I'm probably not going to complete everyone of them and I'm definitely not aiming for that! But the challenges I plan on completing are:
  • Read a hardback
  • Read 2 books in 24 hours
  • Read a graphic novel
  • Read a novella
  • Read 5 books total
I haven't figured my TBR out yet, or at least not completely, but so far it looks like I'm going to be reading these books: 

I'm already listening to both Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins as audiobooks and Unbreakable by Kami Garcia is going to be a reread so I can read the sequel Unmarked
For the novella I plan on reading The Queen by Kiera Cass and maybe The Prince. If I'm in the mood for The Elite after reading that or those I probably will. 

Day 1
I actually did pretty well for the first day of the readathon! I didn't actually read any books from my TBR (oops) but I read 2 books anyway: 

I'd already begun reading The Elite before the readathon but I hadn't read that much. I really enjoyed The Elite but I was pretty disappointed with Homecoming
I also started a third book; The One by Kiera Cass

Day 2
Today I read a total of 3 books and started a fourth! I managed to get halfway through No Time for Goodbye by Linwood Barclay late at night.

I'm apparently not that good at sticking to my TBR but at least I get a ton of reading done! So far I've read 1 library book, 2 ebooks and 2 physical books from my bookshelf! 
My favorite book today was probably The One or Veronika Decides to Die - they were really good but not in the same way! 

Day 3
I can't really figure out whether this was the last day of the readathon but let's say it is! It's not that it was a bad day, but I 'only' finished 2 books and started a third - it was longer books though.
I got about halfway through The Girl on the Train before midnight!


I loved reading The Jane Austen Marriage Manual but I have to admit that I had higher hopes! 

In conclusion
In 3 days I managed to finish a total of 7 books and then half of an 8th book! I read a total of 1984 pages this weekend - I'm quite proud actually! 
I only managed to complete 2 challenges: Read 2 books in 24 hours and Read 5 books in total

Did the readathon go well for you? How many books did you finish? How many challenges did you complete?
