My second goal was to finish the two books I was currently reading, included in the 3-4 books above. These books were Cinder and Shards & Ashes. You can find a review for Cinder here. It was awesome, and I was glad I made it a goal to finish it during bout of books. Shards & Ashes is a dystopia anthology from great authors. Pre-bout of books, I had read 4 stories and I finished all but the last one during the bout of books span. My review will be posted later today. Yay for almost completing goals! :)
Here is my grand total and list of books I read during my first ever read-a-thon!
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer (finished May 16)
- Glitches by Marissa Meyer (started and finished May 16)
- 4 more stories of Shards & Ashes by Various Authors (read May 19)
- The Invention of Hugo Cabret Part 1 (finished May 19, the rest of the book finished May 20th morning)
I am hoping to participate in Bout of Books this August but I may be busy during the time. I am looking forward to participating in other read-a-thon's and supporting other people's reading goals!
