End of Summer Read-A-Thon | Wrap-Up Post


A huge thanks to Lisa from Turning Pages and Audris from YA Bookmark for hosting this fun long weekend of reading!

My goals were to ...
Finish 2 review books and 1 "just for fun" book

 I didn't quite meet my goals ...
Finished 1 review book
Finished 1 just for fun book
Read 1 of 2 novellas in a compilation book
Read bits of 2 other books
 Grand total of 605 pages during the four days

I should have looked at my calendar for the weekend before setting my goals for the End of Summer Read-A-Thon! I didn't reach my goal of reading three books over the four-day period, but I did read, and I did have fun! Isn't that what it's all about?!

Here's a quick run-down of what I read ...
 

A Most Peculiar Circumstance by Jen Turano - FINISHED! - 269 pages
Ring of Secrets by Roseanna M. White - FINISHED! - 148 pages
Fairchild's Lady by Roseanna M. White - 43 pages
Rules of Murder by Julianna Deering - 35 pages
Her Christmas Cowboy by Brenda Minton (part of Christmas Gifts) - 110 pages

    1. At first I thought I did awful, but then I realized how much I read and was really surprised. Read-a-thons are always more fun with friends. Glad we could encourage each other!
