My #mythothon Wrap Up (with Prize Entry)


Books Read: 25!! — I honestly can’t believe I managed it. I will admit though, I had a lot of changes to my TBR. I switched out a lot of the original list for more novellas, graphic novels etc. I also noticed that I read a lot more ebooks this month that I usually would. This was because I was on holiday for a week so I had airport, flight and sunbathing reading time.

Total Pages Read: 6253

5 Physical Books, 14 eBooks and 6 Audiobooks.

And just for laughs: 10 books (less than half!) were from my original TBR and only 8 books were from the original TBR and stayed on the same prompt. …Yup.

My full wrap up is below but, first, on to the prize draws.

If you finished any book for this readathon — even just one — click on the link and add a your wrap up post/ tweet/ whatever to enter.

If you managed to read all 25 books, also stick your link into this second rafflecopter for another chance at a prize.

Both winners will be able to pick any book up to the value of £15 GBP from BookDepository. I’ll announce them on my Twitter account (@foxesfairytale) on the 8th December so be sure to look out for it.

    1. Yeah, me too! I loved the other book of hers I read. The weird thing is I really loved some of the things she was doing with it. But you when picking it up just feels like a chore? Maybe it was just a mood thing… 🙁
