I was a little worried that I wouldn't reach my goal of reading at least 5 books but I managed to finish a couple of books over the weekend. I even wrote some reviews for a few of the books I read. I think this read-a-thon definitely helped me get my reading on track for the month and I definitely plan to participate in the next Bout of Books read-a-thon in May.
Here is what I read:
Waking Kate by Sarah Addison Allen (prequel novella to Lost Lake)
The Pursuit of Mary Bennet by Pamela Mingle
Going Rogue by Robin Benway
The Promise of Stardust by Priscille Sibley
Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen
Alienated by Melissa Landers
Books that didn't quite work:
The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson
(It is currently on my DNF pile. I knew I should have purchased A Street Cat Named Bob instead!)
I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
(I liked what I read of it but I wasn't really in the mood for nonfiction. I will pick it up again later.)
My favorite book from the read-a-thon was The Promise of Stardust. I'm glad I finally got the chance to read it. I also really enjoyed Alienated. I think all of the books I completed were great selections for the read-a-thon because they kept my interest and were quick reads.
