Pick Your Thon Ends!


We did it! Today is the last day of the Pick Your Thon, I hope everyone had a great reading and/or reviewing week. I know I got a lot done! Leave a comment with your wrap up post, or updated post and I’ll stop on by and give you some comment love.

Mark your calendars! The next Pick Your Thon is:

August 4th – 10th, 2014

We’ll be updating on our Monster Thons page closer to the next Pick Your Thon.

So my goals were:

  • Read 9 books.
  • Finish reviewing the 6 pending reviews I have and keep up as I finish reading books.

So, I did finish the three books I had been working on:


And a couple more:

Soulless: The Manga, Vol. 3 Seven Wild Sisters: A Modern Fairy Tale Library Wars: Love & War, Vol. 1

I wrote and scheduled these reviews:

  1. Fly Away by Patricia MacLachlan
  2. This Wicked Game by Michelle Zink
  3. Divergent by Veronica Roth
  4. Seven Wild Sisters by Charles DeLint
  5. Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger
  6. Wonder Light by R.R. Russell
  7. Champion by Marie Lu
  8. Dust City by Robert Paul Weston
  9. Endless Knight by Kresley Cole

So, I may still read a bit today, but I’ve only read 6 books, but wrote 9 reviews. I only have 1 review pending, yay!! Maybe I will finish that one up today and read a couple manga. I’ll update here if I do. 🙂

How did you do on your goals?

  1. I’m interested in Seven Wild Sisters. I will have to wait for your review to see if it would be a book I would like or not. You did a great job. I’m going to continue my progress through today, but otherwise I have finished 1 book, read most of the way through another, and wrote 2 reviews.

  2. I finished 4/5 books that I wanted to but I also wrote 4 reviews plus a DNF review for another book. So all in all, I think this was a great thon 🙂

  3. I read like crazy yesterday and was able to finish a 2nd book and start a third. I wrote two reviews. I’m just one review behind now. This was a great readathon. I think you finally got me out of my reading slump. I’m excited for summer to have time to read.
