Overall: It was fun! I don’t feel like I was as social as I wanted to be but I did visit some blogs and meet some cool people. I’m not sure if I’ll do the one in January but I would like to do it again sometime!
I’m glad you had fun! Congratulations on beating your goal! 🙂
Thanks, I was happy about that!
Woo!! You are awesome bumping up your goal and meeting it! I really want to read Scarlet, I bumped it up on my TBR list and hope I can get to it soon! 🙂
Now that I’ve read all the books I’m sure the reviewing will take a while! I hope you enjoy Scarlet when you get to it!!
Good job! What did you think of The Thirteenth Tale?
I liked it! I’m not sure if I loved it, but I really enjoyed it. I think it’s one that I will probably want to read again at some point!
Wow, what a great week! And The Thirteenth Tale is one of my favorites, I hope you enjoyed it!
I did really like it though it’s been quite a while since I read it. I remember that one of my favorite characters was the older man who showed up in the foggy cemetery. I was especially enthralled whenever he was on scene.
I did enjoy it! I didn’t fall in love with it, but it was fascinating and entertaining. I think it’s one I will definitely want to read again at some point!
Huge congrats on finishing 6 books! That’s really awesome and a lot better than I did. Glad you enjoyed the read-a-thon too. I wish I would have joined in on some twitter chats, but besides that I’m really happy with this read-a-thon. I read/started some pretty awesome books.
Thanks! I participated in one chat and it was fun but I also felt like I didn’t interact much in it? It was really fast!
SIX books in SIX DAYS?! WOW! Do you have some kind of skill or a ritual or something else? 😀 I wantz to haz your skillz!
The “skill” is “not having a life” haha. I basically just didn’t watch TV and stuff. Most of the books I picked were pretty quick reads, I think. Now the reviewing of all the books might be more problematic!
I cannot wait to see your review of The Thirteenth Tale, I find it to be a really good gothic mystery tale. Loved it, will be looking out for your review post 🙂
