 That's a Wrap!

Challenges I Participated In: The Cover Challenge and Bookish Fight
Favourite Book Read: Probably Losing Lila it was so gripping!
Final Thoughts: With this being my first readathon I wasn't sure what to expect, or how much I'd get read, so I was really happy to reach my overall goal of two books when I was only half way through the readathon and even happier when I upped my target to 4 books and finished my fourth book two hours before midnight on the final day! I'm so happy that I not only surpassed my goal but reached the new one I set myself as well. I've certainly been bitten by the readathon bug and have already signed up for another one in August! I had so much fun, probably more than I even thought I was going to, and I can't wait to do it all again with the Summer Wrap Up Read-A-Thon next month. But for now? It's over and out! *goes and lies down for a little nap*

I just wanted to take the chance to thank Lori, Angela and Candace for hosting this readathon and for all the bloggers who hosted the wonderful mini challenges, it's been a blast!


  1. You did great for your first read-a-thon!!!
    I love this series from Ally Carter, so much fun, right?

    Mariana @ Book Travels

    1. Thanks Mariana! It is so much fun! Really want to make a start on the Gallagher Girls series now, maybe for my next readathon? :)

  2. Yay Jess, I so glad you passed your goal, picking a series to read is definitely a good idea, plus the two series' you chose to pick are brilliant, I bet you can't wait for Perfect Scoundrels in January! :)

    1. I really can't wait for Perfect Scoundrels it sounds so good as well! I think series are a really good idea for readathons, might read another series for the next one :)

  3. I wish I could have joined this read-a-thon! I was out of town until Tuesday afternoon so I couldn't sign up, even though a read-a-thon is exactly what I need at the moment. :(

    Anyway, you did great! 4 books is fantastic!!!

    1. Thanks Vicky! Are you signed up for the Summer Wrap Up Read-A-Thon? It would be great if you could take part in that one :)

  4. This is such a great idea and well done on reading 4 books! Might have to have a look at the one next month and see if I can take part!

    1. I hope you can! They're so much fun :)

    2. So I've signed up! Really looking forward to it

  5. This was my very first Read-a-Thon too, though I must say that I didn't do as well as you did! I was a really exciting experience for me, and I hope to read as many books as you did in next year's read-a-thon! :)


  6. Bloody hell woman, congratulations! *shakes Jess's hand in a very earnest British fashion* What an amazing triumph for your first read-a-thon! I hardly made a dent in my reading list compared to yours, but I had a great time! :)

    I've signed up for the High Summer read-a-thon next week (I'm busy all seven days, but I need the focus while I'm at work!), then the Summer Wrap-Up one, then it's Bout of Books right after that, woohoo! My reviewing might suffer horribly, but hopefully it'll be a real drive to get back into reading, leave the Interwebs alone a bit, and also help me survive the summer holidays at the shop by retreating into my books, haha!

    Congrats again sweetie, you did awesome this week! :D
