Hey guys! As you can tell from the title, the #FrightFall Read-A-Thon is over 🙁 I know I had a great time participating in it, and I’m already super excited for the special Christmas readathon that Michelle will be hosting again at Seasons of Reading some time in December. If you didn’t get to join this readathon, I’d highly suggest joining her next one.
The great thing about Michelle’s readathons is that they’re super low-pressure. There are no challenges or anything, but there is a prize page at the end of the readathon that anyone can enter, as long as they post the link to a wrap up they did of that readathon. The main goal of her readathons is to have fun and read more that week. It’s entirely up to you how many books you want on your TBR and how much pressure you want to put on yourself.
I think that’s enough praise for Michelle and her readathons for now, we should probably get started with the wrap up.
When the #FrightFall Read-A-Thon started, I was still reading Wandering Wild by Jessica Taylor. I had hoped to finish it before the readathon, but since I was on a weekend camp where electronic devices were meant to be kept away and unused, I ended up finishing it on Oct 5, the first day of the readathon. Finishing this book also meant that I hit my goal of reading 50 books this year!
From there, I picked up Dead Girls Don’t by Mags Storey and read that until Oct 10.
Lastly, near the end of the readathon, I decided to pick up Goddess of Suburbia by Stephanie Kepke instead of Rise by Anna Carey. I wasn’t in the mood for Rise, so I opted for one of my back-up options instead. When the readathon ended, I was 45% of the way through Goddess of Suburbia, thus concluding what I had read for the #FrightFall Read-A-Thon.
All in all, I finished the last half of 1 book, read a full book, and started a 3rd one. I guess you could call that 3 books. I’m calling it 3 books, even though the reality is more like 2 books in total 😛
I do have reviews for the first two books that I read during the #FrightFall Read-A-Thon, both of which you can find in the “Reviews” tab at the top of the page, which will give you a list of all the books I’ve reviewed on this blog. My review of Goddess of Suburbia should go up sometime in the next few days, depending on when I finish it.
That concludes my wrap-up for this readathon! Did any of you guys participate as well? If so, how did you do? I’d love to hear about it in the comments 🙂
