Wicked Valentine's Read-a-thon Wrap Up!

The Wicked Valentine's Read-a-thon has finished, and the whole thing was a lot of fun! Thanks so much to April, Tabitha and Bex of My Shelf Confessions for hosting this event!

How did I do? Well, I managed to meet all four of my goals, though admittedly not the last one quite as much as I would have liked. So... success! :-D

- Goal - finish 2 of the books I was already reading.
- Result - I finished 2 of the 3 books I had on the go at the beginning of the read-a-thon. I read:

- Goal - Take part in at least 2 mini challenges.
- Result - I participated in 4 mini challenges.
- Goal - Take part in one Twitter chat.
- Result - I took part in one of the Twitter chats. (the other was too late at night for me, otherwise I would have joined that one too. I love Twitter chats!)
- Goal - Visit and comment on other blogs taking part in the read-a-thon.
- Result - I visited other blogs and commented, though not as much as I would have liked. Hopefully will be able to visit a lot of people's wrap up posts though.

How did everyone else's read-a-thon go? Did you manage to meet your goals?

  1. Congratulations!!!! :) *throws confetti*
    It was so much fun, wasn't it? I managed to read two books as well so yay!

    1. Thanks! :-D Yay, congrats on reading two books as well!! Glad you had fun - I enjoyed it a lot, looking forward to the next one already!

  2. Great job finishing two books and all those mini-challenges! They were tough but creative in my opinion. I am participating in the Witches and Witchcraft Reading Challenge and I will be sure to participate in more read-a-thon's so I hope to hear from you again soon!

    1. Thanks! :-) The mini-challenges were really fun, so creative! Ooh, glad you're in the Witches and Witchcraft Challenge too - I still need to get started on my witchy reads actually. Looking forward to seeing you at future read-a-thons! :-D
