Totally Spies Readathon Wrap-Up

Throughout July I participated in the Totally Spiesathon, a Totally Spies-themed readathon created and organised by Noura at The Perks of Being Noura, which took place throughout the entire month.

I was part of Team Sam (she was always my favourite when I watched the show).

Here are the rules and prompts (graphics by Noura):

Here's how the readathon went for me . . .

Book One

I rolled a five.
Prompt number five = free choice! Choose whichever prompt you like from the list!
I chose prompt two (read a book with yellow, red or green on the cover (depending on team).
As I was on Team Sam, I chose a book with green on the cover, Wilder Girls by Rory Power. I rated this 2.5 stars.

Book Two

 I rolled a six.
Prompt number eleven = book that starts with 'A', 'S', or 'C' depending on team.
I chose Scavenge the Stars by Tara Sim which I gave 2.5 stars.

 Book Three

I rolled a two.
Prompt number thirteen = 'Truth or Scare': pick some books from your shelf that you haven't read yet and randomise your next read!
I chose The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso which I gave 3.5 stars.

I then rolled a three, taking me back to the start and finishing Round One.

 I picked The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage (the Mostly True Story of the First Computer) by Sydney Padua which I gave 3.5 stars.

Book Seven
