Bout of Books 24 - Day 5

This started off a pretty slow day for reading. I started a longer book (over 400 pages, which I usually don't do during read-a-thons because I like to read a variety) and it just drug along, felt like it was going so slow. Only got through 46% of it when I decided to read something shorter to get through something else. So I ended up with 2 shorter books at the end of the day which was good. Now to decide if I wanna go back to the plodding book or save it for after the read-a-thon.

    1. Oh also rec for you! Arena Duet by Holly Jennings for gaming! :)

    2. Thank you for the rec! :) I have read the first book and unfortunately I had really really mixed feelings about it and for the most part, hated it. I did like what little gaming was in it, but I felt like it was too small part of the book. Everything else about the book I hated.
