Tackle Your TBR Read-a-Thon Wrap Up
The Tackle Your TBR Read-a-Thon, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, ended on Saturday. Some of you may have been following my progress via the sign-up post, where I was pretty darn good about remembering to update. If you’re a regular reader, you know that I was in a fairly significant reading slump. So my main reason for participating in the Read-a-Thon was to basically force myself out of it. I know you want the results, so without further ado, here’s how I did vs. what I challenged myself to do.
My ultimate goal was to actually read a book, especially since it had been about a month and a half since I’d picked one up. Then I decided to put a little pressure on myself and said I wanted to read 7 books for the Read-a-Thon. I ended up reading 8 books!
The books I finished and you will see reviews for very soon (links go to the already published review):
- Bossypants by Tina Fey
- Brave New World by Aldous Huxley *Guest Review at Books Are My Thing for Banned Books Week
- Crow: Episode One by Alex Owens
- Hereafter by Samuel Peralta
- The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels
- The Girl with All the Gifts by M. R. Carey
- The Last Rail-Rider by Jason Gurley
- Trauma Room by Samuel Peralta
The books I started, but haven’t finished yet:
- Alaska Bound: One Man’s Dream, One Woman’s Nightmare by Tammy Jones
- Clipped Wings by Helena Hunting
- Lesser Darkness by Aaron Polson
- Peter: The Untold True Story by Christopher Mechling
- The Gift by James Patterson
I have to pat myself on the back and toot my own horn. I was pretty worried that I wouldn’t actually read anything, but (hello!) I was wrong. Since I’m back to my normal book nerd self, I feel like I owe two people a pretty big thank you.
- BookJunkieKrystal at Books Are My Thing since she brought this Read-a-Thon to my attention.
- Tressa at Wishful Endings because she hosted the entire Read-a-Thon and regularly checked in with encouraging words.
Now I’m seriously considering do some sort of Read-a-Thon. I just have to think of a theme and name. Then I’ll be in business. I orginally thought December because then it could be holiday themed, but I decided that was dumb (and a little too easy) and I could do better. Plus, I’m pretty sure my family would like me to socialize and not have my nose in a book. Stay tuned for more on this little engine of a project!
And CONGRATS to everyone that participated in the Tackle Your TBR Read-a-Thon!
