Falling for Autumn 2014 Read-a-Thon - Wrap Up


The official challenges were:

  • Read a total of four (4) books; 
  • To read at least 150 pages per day; 
  • To read a book with an autumnal colour on the cover (red, orange, brown, gold); 
  • To read a book with a male protagonist; 
  • To read the first or last book in a series;

I didn't read 4 books. I read two books, "Alienated" by Melissa Landers and "Poison Study" by Maria V. Snyder. I also started reading "Written in Read" by Anne Bishop. 
I didn't read 150 pages per day. However, I did read every day that I participated in the Read-a-Thon. I started my participation on 23rd September, on the second day of the challenge.
I read a book with an autumnal colour on the cover, "Poison Study" by Maria V. Snyder. I has yellow, red and brown.
I didn't read a book with a male protagonist.
I read the first book in a series. In fact, I read two books that are first in a series, "Alienated" and "Poison Study" and I started another book that is also first in a series, "Written in Red".

 I completed two out of five of the official challenges for Falling for Autumn 2014 Read-a-Thon. I can't say that it was a successful Read-a-Thon, but I did enjoy it (as I usually enjoy these kind of reading challenges). I was going through a moment that I didn't feel like reading anything at all, so it helped to get back on track with my readings.

Falling for Autumn 2014 Read-a-Thon - Sign Up, Goals & Updates

“Falling for Autumn is read-a-thon where we welcome the Fall/Autumn by reading as many books as possible during a week.

The official challenges are:

Here am I entering in another Read-a-Thon. I know I'm a day late, but I was feeling bored and missing readins, so why not give it a chance? I didn't choose any book for the official challenges- as I usually do when I participate in a Rea-a-Thon - so I'll be "improvising". Not sure if I'll be completing any of the challenges, but I'll try to complete at least one or two. 

Good luck! :)
