This readathon ran from the 23rd to the 29th September and while I wasn’t in the mood to be reading contemporary books during this week (more fantasy than anything else), I pushed through and read a lot of contemporary books on my night shifts. I absolutely did not stick to my TBR.
Okay, I had such a great time for this readathon. I love Harry Potter readathons but I also love this readathon because the Twitter was so involved. All links on my TBR post here. This wrap-up post took a while to write because wow, the format drove me up the wall. Maybe next time I’ll do a split wrap up post.
My TBR went all over the place for this readathon but I got several books on my TBR read and several others were impulse reads.
How did everyone else do on this readathon?
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.
I’ll tell you something, I completely forgot about this readathon. I had a very good excuse, I had a job interview which came up in the middle of the readathon and since it was the NHS, I had a ton of paperwork to get through. But yeah, reading kind of fell to the wayside.
However, some of the books I read did fill some of the challenges.
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.
This readathon was a surprise for me because while I knew there would be another round, I didn’t know this round had begun until the day of the readathon. But I knocked out a TBR and I sort of stuck to it. This readathon ran from the 1st to the 8th May.
My TBR is here.
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.
