I participated in the Bout of Books Readathon last week. The readathon started on Monday and finished yesterday (Sunday). I set some goals for myself before the readathon, and created a tentative TBR for the week.
Here’s how I did.
Goals Completed (All of them!!!!):
Read 1,200 pagesI read 1,225! Complete 4 booksSort of. I finished 3 1/2. and I’m 60% done with my fourth book. Participate on social media every day in some formI completed every challenge but one, participated in one of the Twitter chats, and posted daily updates on my blog. Read 2 benchwarmer books (for #AYEARATHON)I did this! Pushing the Limits, One + One = Blue, and Say What You Will were all benchwarmer books. Have fun!I had lots of fun! I don’t think I’ll set book or page number goals next time though. I stressed myself out this afternoon scrambling to get through 200 more pages to reach my page number goal.
This was my TBR:
- The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
One + One = Blue by M.J. Auch
- Just Visiting by Dahlia Adler
Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern(I read 60%)
Overall I’m really happy with my progress! I read more than I normally do in a week, and that’s always my main goal with any readathon. Plus, I gave every book I read 4 stars and I was able to knock three books off my TBR that I’ve had on my shelf for awhile.
Did you participate in one of the readathons this week? How did you do? Hope you had a fun time!
