Tome Topple Round 12 Wrap Up

Image

This readathon went about as well as I had expected while doing another reading challenge at the same time. I did manage to finish some tomes but I absolutely didn’t stick to my TBR and I definitely didn’t complete all the challenges. So I’m posting this wrap up to be complete but I did about as well for this Tome Topple as I did for the one in February. If I’m doing a reading challenge where I have to read a lot of books, I won’t be doing Tome Topple again! This round went from the 8th to the 21st August.

Did anyone else do this round’s Tome Topple?

Avatar: The Last Page Turner Wrap Up

This readathon ran for the first two weeks of August to celebrate Avatar: Legend of Korra coming to (American) Netflix. And I thought it sounded like a fun readathon with some relatively easy prompts to complete. Of course, there was another reading challenge going on so my TBR went a little all over the place. I did manage to get some books that had been on my TBR for a while knocked off with this readathon.

Tome Topple Round 11 Wrap Up

This readathon is one that focuses on books over 500 pages and it ran from the 9th to the 22nd May. I had such trouble with the last round but this one went much better. Well, I finished two tomes but I talk about four books in this because I started all of them in this readathon. I didn’t do all the prompts but I managed a fair few. My TBR is here.

This wrap up is very late but I’m trying to be better with closing out readathons I’ve done. Now I just need to get them on time!

Tome Topple Round 10 Wrap Up

This round of Tome Topple is over! It ran from the 7th to the 20th February and I absolutely did not manage to stay on top of it this time. I actually pushed the readathon until the 28th February because otherwise it would have been me saying ‘I started this one, I DNFed this one…’ Curse reading slumps.

That said, I enjoyed the two books I did follow and I am still enjoying the one I started but it suffered because I’m such a mood reader.

Polarthon Wrap Up

This very wintery readathon is finished! I started a little late as I was away from home until the 4th February, so I finished on the 10th instead of the 9th. My TBR is here.

That said, this was a very successful readathon for me because I knocked two books off my TBR (though one isn’t quite done) and the one I finished had been on for a while. THis wrap up post probably isn’t even worth it but I’m trying to be better about TBR/Wrap Up posts.

Magical Readathon – Week 3

This is the third week of the winter/seasonal readathon in the same kind of area as the O.W.Ls and N.E.W.Ts readathons. Week by week there are a series of choices on the website which give you your prompt(s) for the week. It is very much a ‘choose your own timing’ kind of readathon, so someone could start now and go through the whole readathon, but I’m doing it along with most other people.

As I discovered, you don’t get multiple prompts all on the same page so you have to finish the first book, click completion and then get the second prompt, which is why everything went a little haywire this week!

Triwizard Tournament – Third Task Wrap Up

Green Cypress

This is the third and final task of the Triwizard Tournament and it ran from the 9th to the 15th December. This is the post to the explanation of the task and here is my TBR for this task. Spoiler – I didn’t stick to my TBR.

I did a lot better on this week than I did on the other two weeks and I had a good time looking for books to fit these prompts, they were a lot harder to find books I owned and wanted to read for these prompts than I thought.

Triwizard Tournament – Second Task Wrap Up

Fish Underwater

Well, I definitely did not get as much read for this week as I was wanting to. I fell into a bit of a reading slump since I was frantically trying to write 20,000 words for Nanowrimo (I just about made it) and every time I sat down to read, I kept telling myself I should be writing. Not good.

That said, I did enjoy one of the books I read which is mostly a good sign. This ran from the 25th November to the 1st December.

Here is the post explanation and here is my TBR, which I did not stick to in the slightest.
