Wicked Valentine’s Read-a-Thon Vol. 2 Recap

Wicked Valentine's Read-a-Thon

Wicked Valentine’s Read-a-Thon Vol. 2

I do so love readathons, and the WWReadathons are always amazing, but alas this one is over. The Twitter chats were a ton of fun, the books for me were mostly excellent despite not reading as much as I wanted, and overall it was a great time of bookish goodness. Over the course of the readathon I read 9 books and started a tenth, reading a total of 2,850 pages, not too shabby! Now, without further ado, here are the books I read! ^.^

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein – 2/5

Prep School Confidential by Kara Taylor – 3/5

Three by Kristen Simmons – 5/5 – reviewed it here!

Lady Thief by A.C. Gaughen – 5/5

Split Second by Kasie West – 5/5

Despite the fact that I managed to read a book a day this week (even though I got more sick) I’m not thrilled with my reading progress. This was the main part of the Wicked Valentine’s Readathon and I wanted to get at least 10 books in during that portion, so while 7 is alright, for a readathon it isn’t stepping up my usual levels at all. However, I didn’t read any novellas this week, everything was full length novels (some of which were even 350-400 or so), so that’s good.

Even though the quantity wasn’t there this week the quality sure was! Lady Thief and Split Second, my two pre-orders for this week, both lived up to every possible expectation I could have had for them and I’m already pining for the next in each series! Three was just as excellent and a wonderful way to end the trilogy, and If You Find Me gave me ALL THE FEELS. So ya, good stuff.

I’ve already read almost half the books I received this week, and will likely pick up another soon because they just look so pretty! I don’t know when I’ll get around to reading The Name of the Wind though, the book is massive. o_o I hope you enjoyed the variety this week with a cover reveal AND a blog tour review, it was a ton of fun to participate in both! Thanks for stopping by, feel free to leave a link to your Sunday Post or whatever other bookish meme you partake in over the weekend and I will be sure to check it out! Enjoy your Sunday! ^.^
