Encerrando a Maratona Literária de Inverno 2017

Olá, leitores! Tudo bem com vocês?

Hoje venho compartilhar como foi o meu progresso durante a #MLI2017, todos os livros que li nesse período e o que achei dessa experiência.

Essa maratona literária salvou a minha vida! Eu estava em uma profunda ressaca literária e finalmente consegui me livrar dela.
Inicialmente, escolhi o nível fácil. Porém, acabei lendo os livros da minha TBR logo na primeira semana. Então, resolvi dar um upgrade e ir para o nível intermediário.

Eu fui fazendo alguns updates assim que eu completava um livro ou desafio. Vocês podem dar uma olhada aqui: UPDATE #1 | UPDATE #2 | UPDATE #3

Consegui ler um total de 7 livros e cumpri quase todos os desafios. O único que não deu tempo de completar, foi LIVRO NACIONAL. Eu escolhi “Picta Mundi” da Gleice Couto e pretendo lê-lo ainda este mês.

Considerando todos os desafios desta maratona, do nível fácil ao hardcore, estes foram os desafios completados:

1- Ler um livro com a capa azul ✓
2- Ler um livro com menos de 200 páginas ✓
3- Ler um livro que você comprou pela capa ✓
4- Ler um livro escrito por uma mulher ✓
5- Ler um livro sem saber a sinopse ou do que se trata ✓
6- Ler um livro com pontuação no título ✓
7- Ler um livro que é muito criticado ou que alguém não gostou ✓

Agora vamos aos livros que li e que completaram os desafios, de acordo com a ordem acima:

1- By Your Side da Kasie West
2- Sete Minutos Depois da Meia-Noite do Patrick Ness
3- O Curioso Caso de Benjamin Button do F. Scott Fitzgerald
4- P.S. I Like You da Kasie West
5- Magnus Chase: A Espada do Verão do Rick Riordan
6- Perdão, Leonard Peacock do Matthew Quick
7- A Metamorfose do Franz Kafka

Eu adorei todas as minhas leituras e muitas delas se tornaram as minhas favoritas do ano. Postarei a resenha de todos esses livros lá no Instagram e por aqui.
Eu sou apaixonada por maratonas literárias e sempre me esforço para participar e ler o máximo possível. Aliás, já estou planejando fazer uma Maratona 24 Horas esse mês para manter o ritmo de leituras.

E vocês? Como vocês foram nessa Maratona Literária de Inverno? Aproveitaram bastante?

Synopsis:

Courage comes from a shadowed place in our hearts; a blurred line that straddles love and sheer stupidity.
To seventeen-year-old Ava, wild woodcats, hungry stragglers, and simple-minded townsfolk are the evils she’s grown accustomed to. But when Ethan, an unusual man with eyes of smoke and fire opal, enters her world she quickly understands that there are worse things out there than drunken men and carnivorous forest creatures. She’s a specialised liar and a hell of a fighter, but against a group of animalistic men called Berserkers she struggles to survive the encounter as the desperate swing of a dagger is all it takes to change her life for good.
Half-dead and hunted by the Berserker’s leader when he forms a monstrous obsession with her, Ava escapes his pursuit in an unfamiliar land full of impossible creatures, unlikely allies, and the man she doesn’t know whether to kiss or kill.
But after dreadful news of her missing brother surfaces, Ava becomes more involved in the centuries-long war and begins to unravel the reasons behind her relentless nightmares, discovering truths long-buried in a violent history of love, loss and betrayal.

The second book is coming out on February 6th, 2018.
I’m really excited for this upcoming release!

SYNOPSIS:
Laylee can barely remember the happier times before her beloved mother died. Before her father, driven by grief, lost his wits (and his way). Before she was left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days washing the bodies of the dead and preparing their souls for the afterlife. It’s become easy to forget and easier still to ignore the way her hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair, and her own ever-increasing loneliness and fear.

But soon, a pair of familiar strangers appears, and Laylee’s world is turned upside down as she rediscovers color, magic, and the healing power of friendship.

WHY AM I WAITING?
I’m really excited about this release! I loved “Furthermore” and gave it 5 stars. It was definetly one of my favorite reads of this year. I have high expectations for this one and knowing that it’s from Tahereh Mafi, I know I won’t be desapointed.
