So, Read-O-Rama is officially finished and I am very happy to say I completed all the assigned challenges…
This list will be in order of challenges I completed. I started this read-a-thon with:
Read a book of Short Stories:
I started with Grim as I am quite obsessed with fairytales. This turned out to be the third book i finished as I read a couple of short stories a day.
Read a book with RAMA in the title:
I needed to read this to continue on my Harry Potter re-read… when I saw that I could make RAMA out of the title it was fate. Of course this book was excellent… it’s J.K. Rowling.
Read a book with music:
This was an excellent choice for this read-a-thon. I immediately thought of this book when I saw this challenge as it was on the top of my TBR pile. Also, I fly through Colleen’s book, she is Queen of New Adult.
Read a Buddy Read:
This was buddy read with @reading_annie88 on twitter. I haven’t had a chance to catch up with her about her thoughts on Illuminae, but I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. The mixed media in this book had me apprehensive but there was no need, it was excellent.
Read a book with a Person of Colour Main Character:
This book had me pretty up in the air as I have read and seen some bad reviews of this book. I didn’t think it was bad. It’s not the best I read but I would rate it a solid 3.75/5.
Read a book with a One-Word Title:
I have been trying to get to this book for ages now but for one reason or another haven’t gotten to it. This read-a-thon was exactly the kick in the butt I needed. It is excellent… but that ending…I need more!
Read a book to movie / TV adaptation:
This was the final book I read for this read-a-thon and I wasn’t sure I would get to it, but I flew through Cinder. This is a re-read for me and the Booksplosion Book of the Month. So, two birds, one stone.
The final challenge was:
Read 7 Books:
This was quite ambitious, but I did it, yes I did. (Insert victory dance here). I completed all of the challenges.
I enjoyed this read-a-thon so much. I particularly liked the the level of interaction we had with the hosts and the other participants on Twitter. I will definitely do this Read-a-thon again if it repeats.
