BookTube 24-Hour Read-a-thon!!

I'm SO excited to be taking part in this read-a-thon. I know a lot of other people are participating, and it should be fun!

All my reading updates will be placed here. So be sure to check back here on my progress.
I'll also be tweeting, so if you're not already following me, you can follow me by clicking here.
Also, feel free to add me on Goodreads to see my status updates on the books I'm reading. 

I am a slow reader, so this will be a definite challenge for me. I have done a 24-hour read-a-thon before and I ended up in a slump! Hopefully that won't happen this time! D:
If you are participating, let me know down below. 
Good luck & happy reading!! =D

So overall I didn't think I did too bad (that's what I keep telling myself). I fell asleep and woke up late. Lost the motivation to read, but I pushed myself to finish at least 1 book. I'm a slow reader. 
It was fun. Well done to everybody that participated, and a massive thanks to everybody that supported me! =D
