Reading 7 Books in 7 Day-The Results!

So last week, i set myself a challenge of reading 7 books in 7 days. I did this because there were so many books I was just desperate to read and so I cleared my schedule and made reading these books a priority for the week. I took the books from my March TBR and read some of the march releases I wanted to read combined with some library books that I recently borrowed and a book I recently bought!

So the week was a success and it literally lasted me right up until the end of the week. This was partly because I chose to listen to quite a long audiobook!

So here's what I read and my page count for the week!

The first book I finished was The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel. I reviewed this one straight away and you can find that by clicking here! This came in at 352 pages.

Next I read the second book in the Tanglewood Animal Park series by Tamsyn Murray-The Troublesome Tiger. I learned so much about wild animals from this book, look out for a review coming soon! This was 176 pages!

Next I read The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti. I had heard a lot of hype about this one online. I don't think that it lived up to all the hype but I still found it an enjoyable read. I'll be reviewing this soon and it added 398 pages to my total.

Next I read an ebook of the final book in the Geek Girl series by Holly Smale, Forever Geek. I so loved this book, as I have all the other Geek Girl books! This one comes out on Thursday and so look out for a review of that then! This was 400 magnificent pages!

My fifth book that I read was Secrets of a Happy Marriage by Cathy Kelly. This is only the second book I've read by Cathy Kelly and it was certainly a book packed full of drama. This one also comes out on Thursday and I'm part of the blog tour for this one so I'm going to be reviewing this this week too! This was a whopping 514 pages but each of those was turned eagerly!

Over the course of the week I listened to the audiobook of Truly Madly Deeply by Liane Moriarty so this is kind of book 1 and book 7 because I started this one first but finished it last. I'll be reviewing this one soon, it is already out and has been since July. This is 472 pages in length.

And finally a book of short stories. This was a collection of 10 short stories, edited by Ellen Oh, co-funder of We Need Diverse Books. Some stories I liked more than others but this book was a little bit of a disappointment to me-I'm no sure if I'll review this one! This was 218 pages. 

So altogether this week I read 4 physical books, 2 of them library books, 2 ebooks and 1 audiobook for a total page count of 2530 pages. I'm really pleased that I made time for all these books this week and I'm glad I had a nice range of YA, MG and adult reads. The only thing this week was missing was non-fiction. So now I can continue making my way through the rest of my March TBR and focus on getting to some non-fiction reading soon. 

What did you read this book? What else is on your March TBR?
