Sunday Post #101: Did I stay up for 24 hours reading?!

Posted May 1, 2022 by Angie in Sunday Post / 7 Comments

Saturday was the start of the 24 Hour Readathon! At the time this posts, it will have ended an hour ago. Did I make it?! I normally last 19-21 hours, and that is about what I did this time. I made it 20 hours, finishing six books!

I know I said last week that I had enough games for now, but I did buy two physical games that I’ve been desperately wanting: Blue Reflection: Second Light and Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town. I did use a discounted gift card on them, so I saved even more! And they’re long games that will keep me busy for a very long time. Speaking of long games, I lived and breathed Dragon Quest Builders 2 and managed to beat it during the free trial! It was so addicting and fun! Even though I beat it, I’ll definitely still buy it in the future, since I didn’t get to experience much of the post game or the side quests, because I simply focused on playing the main story. Highly recommend.

And as a bit of a palate cleanser between long games, I got back to Little Bug which I hadn’t played in a few weeks after getting stuck. I happily got past the part I was stuck on fairly quickly and made it through several more sections before getting stuck again. I tend to do well with putting games down for a bit, then picking them back up later. So this is going to be that game for me. Then I played through My Big Sister, which was pretty good. I did also start SoS:FoMT, and that seems like a game I’ll just pick up and play for a little while at a time, rather than getting sucked in for hours on end. Unlike, Atelier Sophie, which I also started and will likely get addicted to.

I grabbed the rest of my holds early in the week, so I was well-stocked for the Readathon!

  1. I thought about doing Dewey but I was just kind of behind on everything and trying to plug the worst leaks so to speak. It was so great to see you at the Read-along chat today!

    • Aw, maybe next time! I’ve only missed one readathon in the last ten years (even if I couldn’t participate all day), but I was in Disneyland, sooo..

  2. I’d love to do a readathon but sadly my toddler (and partner) probably – definitely – wouldn’t be impressed 😂. Games are also a thing of the past but maybe some day soon again 😶

    An interesting looking haul from the library.

    Have a great week!
