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.

I missed the last round of Strangeathon, but I was definitely going to take part in this round, especially when it occurred during October! This readathon runs from the 13th October to Halloween and the Twitter is here. This TBR was hard to put together because I have far fewer books with Halloween stuff on the cover than I thought!
