I planned to read three books and an audiobook for the readathon. I have surprised myself and am really pleased that I managed that! Monday: On Monday I had a five-hour train journey. Train journeys are always extremely helpful when you want to power through a book. I read all of Connor Franta’s A Work In … More LGBTReadathon 22nd–28th June: Wrap Up

I am taking part in the next LGBT Readatbon hosted by Faye. I attempted to take part in the last one in May, however, after a bit of a mix up, where I ordered a book to my home address rather than uni term–time address, I gave up.
