Kristine’s (very late) Taleathon results

My excuse is essays and exams (that I’m currently procrastinating studying for).

What I read:

  1. Taken by Benedict Jacka
  2. approximately 50 pages of The Song of the Red Ruby by Agnar Mykle
  3. Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie issue 2 (+ a re-read of issue 1)

Challenges done:

  1. Read a book published before you were born: The Song of the Red Ruby was indeed published prior to my birth.
  2. Read a comic or graphic novel: The Big Lie is a series of comics.

Wooh. I wrote the post. I also watched all of season 2 of Sense8, in case you wondered why I read less than 300 pages worth of stuff. Well that and did some essay writing. Sense8 took most my time though. I just couldn’t help myself.



Kats Taleathon results

Hey everyone, our third Taleathon is over for now and this is how I did this time around.


This are the books I read.

  • The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (physical book)
  • American Supernatural Tales edited by S. T. Joshi (physical book)
  • Amulet nr 1: The stone Guradian by Kazu Kibuishi (physical book, read in norweigan)
  • Amulet nr 2: The Stonekeeper’s Curse by Kazu Kibuishi (ebook, read in english, as all the rest of them were as well.
  • Amulet nr 3: The Cloud Searchers by Kazu Kibuishi
  • Amulet nr 4: The Last comcil by Kazu Kibuishi
  • Amulet nr 5: Prince of Elves by Kazu Kibuishi
  • Amulet nr 6: Escape from Lucien by Kazu Kibuishi


The challenges I completed were:

  1. Read a book published before you were born: Both The Great Gatsby and most of the stories in American Supernatural Tales fulfill this one.
  2. Read a comic or graphic novel: all the books by Kazu Kibuishi were graphic novels.
  3. Read a diffrent text type/formate then then you normally read: American Supernatural Tales fulfill this challenge, as it’s short stories, which I don’t normally go for.

I’m pretty satisfied with my results this time around, especially since I had some trouble getting started at first.
