Strangeathon Wrap Up

Strangethon

So, this readathon went better than I thought. Considering I forgot about the last two readathons I took part in, this one went better. I was in such a reading slump through July that I welcomed a set TBR. I didn’t stick to it completely because I was trying to work on my July TBR as well, but I read some of the books I wanted to read. Plus I think I got out of my reading slump, so yay? Good and bad points all round but I’ll take it.

This readathon ran from the 22nd to the 28th July and the twitter is here.

Scallywagathon Wrap Up

ScallywagAThon

This is one of those readathons where you get a map to find your prompts but then you read every other prompt but the ones you picked. So my TBR was completely thrown out the window as I changed the prompts I chose and the books I read.

My TBR is here and this readathon ran from the 5th to the 12th May which makes this wrap-up very late. It was a successful enough readathon, though I don’t think I’ll overlap it again next time.

O.W.Ls Readathon Wrap Up

This is an amazingly detailed readathon based around Harry Potter, more specifically, the fifth year exams. There was also a booklet of careers where you could see which exams (reading prompts) you would have to do to get your dream career. And of course, I decided to go for the hardest career and see how it would turn out.

My TBR is here. I went for Alchemist and I actually managed to succeed in reading enough books to fit the prompts.

Tome Topple Wrap Up

Tome Topple Readathon

Look at me in my TBR, being all optimistic about how I was going to do on this readathon. Did that happen? Not so much. However, I did get around to one tome in particular which has been on my TBR for ages so I’m glad about that. My TBR crashed and burned but two of these books have been on my TBR for ages and I’m glad to knock them off (plus they were both really good).

Actually all the books for this readathon turned out to be books I enjoyed when it came down to it, though some took a little longer than others.
