Wicked Valentine's Read-a-Thon

Yesterday I finished up the read-a-thon I was participating in. I feel like I was pretty successful with this one and I got a good amount of reading done. I posted my goals here last week, so let's see how I did:

  • Read at least 100 pages each day. Done. Technically, there was a day where I didn't read, but my average ended up being 115 pages per day & 809 pages overall. Not bad I suppose.
  • Finish 2 1/2 books. Not quite. I didn't finish The Scorpio Races like I had hoped, but I finished up Gone Girl, read 3/4 of  The Scorpio Races, & read 3/4 of The Indigo Spell.
  • Participate in at least one Twitter chat. Done! I meant to participate in both, but the timing didn't work out for the first one. The second one was fun though!
  • Visit other blogs and make some new book friends. Done! I'm proud of myself for this one, because it's been hard to get around to other blogs lately.
 All in all it was pretty fun! I will definitely participate in the next one.


  1. You did awesomely :) YAY! I cannot wait for the next readathon. If you find one before me, let me know. Usually Bout of Books and WWReadathons are twice a year...sometimes the latter is 3x.

  2. Hi Melissa! I just found you through the Friday Chaos Blog Hop and glad I did! The first thing I noticed was that you used the word "wicked" in your post title, and I've only seen one other blogger besides myself use that word, and we're both from New England. I read your bio and couldn't tell where your from...

    Hope you'll stop by and say hello and I'm hosting a NO RULES Weekend Blog Party if you'd like to link up :)


  3. New follower from the hop! I would be thankful if you follow back.

  4. Wish I had known about the reading hop -- sounds do-able. You did great!
    Following you via Chaos hop. Have a great weekend.

  5. Hey you did really well! :-) Congrats! And glad you had fun too - I really enjoyed this read-a-thon, and has been great to discover some new bloggers as well. Can't wait for the next one! :-)


I love hearing what you have to say! Comments make me happy.
