If you want to know more about the readathon, the rules, etc. then check out my original post here! The readathon is hosted by Ely @ Tea and Tiles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley! This was my second year participating, and I was pretty successful!
First, let's talk about the results of the poll! Here are the order of the books from most voted to least voted:
1) The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
2) The Diabolic by SJ Kincaid
3) PS I Like You by Kasie West
4) The Reader by Traci Chee
5) Compusion by Martina Boone
6) Brave New Girl by Rachel Vincent
7) A Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray
8) Infinity by Jus Accardo
The first day of the readathon (6th) , I didn't actually read any of these books! I was still trying to finish Recreated by Colleen Houck (my review is here!) and managed to finish it by mid-day.
I don't remember the exact timeline, but I finished three books from the list above! I didn't have a set goal, and I was pretty proud of myself! I also read two other books outside the top three (Recreated by Colleen Hoover and Frostblood by Ely Blake) so I actually read 5 books in the seven days!
First, I read The Wrath and the Dawn! I really enjoyed it, and I don't have any exact complaints, but the x factor wasn't there to make me love it. I did love the romance, the political intrigue, and the magic. I'm really looking forward to reading the sequel. Soon, too!
Then, I went and read The Diabolic by SJ Kincaid! I heard amazing things from my friends over at Quail Ridge Books, and on the blogopshere in general. And guys, they were all worth it. Out of the three books I read for this readathon, this was the book I liked the most. It's not a favorite of the year, but it's pretty darn close. I'm very excited for the sequel, The Empress!
Lastly, I read PS I Like You by Kasie West. If you don't know, my reading experience with West books has been a mixed bag. I really didn't like The Fill in Boyfriend, and I thought By Your Side was cute and refreshing, but not anything spectacular. However, I really liked PS I Like You. It was a super quick and fun read, and I know I'll be reading more of West in the future!
So that's how I did in the readathon! I'm pretty proud of myself. I plan on reading the next couple books (The Reader and Compulsion especially) really soon as well, considering I'm participating in a readathon right now! Check out my TBR for The Reading Quest here!
And that's my wrap up for the readathon! I had a ton of fun this year, and did a lot better than last. I was also able to do some sprints with other bloggers, and that was my favorite part of the whole experience!! I will definitely be participating next year!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
Genni @ Ready, Set, Read!
