Yesterday, August 15th, was the final day of the Dusting off the Shelf Read-A-Thon! It was a total fail for me, but I’m so happy to hear that a lot of you read a crazy amount of books! So, congrats to all of you that completed the challenges, read all the books on your TBR, and were just reading machines in general – you’re awesome! 😉
Here are the books that I completed and started during the read-a-thon:
- The Maze Runner by James Dashner (REVIEW)
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (REVIEW)
- Scarlet by Marissa Meyer (REVIEW)
- [In Progress] The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
I think the main problem was that I was short on time these past two weeks. I had art camp and homework that I had to finish which took out a chunk of time from my reading. I’m a bad planner, I should have known this would have happened!
But like I said before, I know a lot of you did amazing jobs, and I think that (with better planning), I’m going to do the read-a-thon again some time! Probably over a school break, and possibly again next summer. I will have all of the details regarding that when I actually decide on dates, etc.
Some things I hope to improve upon for next time:
- Actually keep track of my page counts 😛
- Interact more with read-a-thon participants
- Read more books!
I’d love it if you’d comment with some constructive criticism regarding the read-a-thon. As this was my first time really participating AND hosting one, I went into it pretty blindly! But I gave it a try and with your help I hope to improve for prospective future read-a-thons!
Thanks again to everyone for being so supportive, and to all of those that signed up! It means a ton to me! 🙂 ❤
