Anti-Bully Reads Wrap-up!11:22 AM
I'll be honest, I knew I wasn't going to get to read that much this week because I have been crazy busy with university work, I'm trying to stay really far ahead! So I actually read more than I thought I was going to, which is always a good thing! I managed to completely finish one book and I got half way through a second one which is brilliant for me. If you don't know what the readathon was all about, below I have inserted Sarah Churchill's video explaining it. I'm also happy to say that this will now be an annual event!
Carrie by Stephen King
Carrie White is no ordinary girl.
Carrie White has the gift of telekinesis.
To be invited to Prom Night by Tommy Ross is a dream come true for Carrie - the first step towards social acceptance by her high school colleagues.
But events will take a decidedly macabre turn on that horrifying and endless night as she is forced to exercise her terrible gift on the town that mocks and loathes her.
How far I got: Finished

Thoughts: This is the first Stephen King book I've ever read and it's also the weirdest book I have ever read. I really enjoyed this and bullying is definitely a big part of this book, highly recommend to anyone who hasn't tried any Stephen King yet or anyone who just wants to pick it up, please do!
Falling into Place by Amy Zhang
One cold fall day, high school junior Liz Emerson steers her car into a tree. This haunting and heartbreaking story is told by a surprising and unexpected narrator and unfolds in nonlinear flashbacks even as Liz's friends, foes, and family gather at the hospital and Liz clings to life.
How far I got: 158 pages of 296
Review: Coming Soon
Thoughts: oh my god, I am absolutely in love with this book so far, it jumps in the timeline which I really love, it's really interesting and it's from a completely fresh perspective of someone who wants to commit suicide, by that I mean this book is about a popular girl. I really am enjoying this book and everytime I pick it up I find it really hard to put back down.
How did you guys do in the readathon? did you manage to get much done?
