Halloween ReadAThon Wrap Up

The Halloween ReadAThon hosted by Lauren @ WonderlessReviews ends today – so I decided it was an appropriate time to wrap everything up and evaluate how I did. Happy Halloween! Catch up on previous Halloween ReadAThon posts here.

NEARLY. I’m still trying to finish And I Darken by Kiersten White – I wanted to read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children but I couldn’t get a hold of a copy at the library in time. The waiting list at the library is seven people long – despite having ten copies, all are out on loan. That means waiting for effectively 17 people to read and return the book (with a 3 week loan period that can be repeated up to four times – sigh).

COMPLETE. This one goes to Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead as previously mentioned in update posts!

NEARLY. I haven’t picked up The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins in the last two weeks but when I last was reading it, I very much enjoyed it. I’m still annoyed that the film adaptation moved a British-centric plot to New York. Why? America gets all the best films set there, especially New York. Normally I wouldn’t be surprised, but this book was written on the Jubilee line (an underground tube line in London). As a Londoner myself it has definitely put me off going to see the film.

COMPLETE. COMPLETE. Treat: for this one I read Half Blood by Jennifer L Armentrout – this was one of the books I won as part of a twitter giveaway from FairyLoot back in September.

  1. Hello there! It is nice to see that I wasn’t the only one who didn’t finish it :P

    I read 2 novels, 80% of a short story collection (I will finish it tonight though) and a graphic novel, which wasn’t in my plans.

    You did pretty damn well in my book though. You managed to read 3 whole books and get some progress done in another 3!! By the way you really need to finish the girl on the train, it is really good.

    Happy readings,
    Lii
