#SeriesCrackDown Wrap-up!

Hey guys,

So we have come to the end of the Series Crack Down Read-a-thon, which was a read-a-thon dedicated to picking up those sequels and making progress on those series that sit half-read on your shelves.

I loved this read-a-thon. 

Now, since my third check in (here) I have not finished many books; at that point I had completed:

  • The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks
  • The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Skye
  • Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones
  • Fireblood by Elly Blake
  • Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes

I was really happy with my reading at this point and wanted to try and focus on my writing for the rest of the week (especially as I was feeling inspired and my head was full of ideas that I needed to get down). Since then, I have only completed 1 book; The School for Good and Evil: The Last Ever After by Soman Chainani, the final book in The School For Good and Evil Trilogy.

I was really proud to get to the end of another series during this read-a-thon; completing this trilogy meant that I finished three series and made progress on 3 more. Something I don’t usually do, since I mainly find myself picking up more series than finishing the ones I have.

Another thing that I am really happy about was that I read completely off my own tbr shelf, I already had all of these books and I feel happy to have gotten 6 of them off my tbr in one lovely sweep.

Now, I did start two other books, both of which finish trilogies; Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead by Rick Riordan is my current physical read, and A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas is my current audiobook. I have been working on both of these for the last few days but because I have been spending majority of my time writing, I haven’t found the time or energy to push myself through these.

This read-a-thon was a complete success for me. I loved it. I have set myself a goal of finishing off some of the series on my shelves because I have way too many ‘open’ series. I have collected a lot of my series from my complete tbr and bought them around with me, meaning they are now directly in front of me and hopefully this means that I will be more likely to pick them up.

How did you all do on your read-a-thon? Did you manage to finish a series? Did you make progress on a series that has been sat on your shelves for a while? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. Congrats on doing so well for the Readathon!! 🙂 I’m also quite happy with what I read, I managed to read an entire Series that has been on my shelf way too long and even managed to make time for an new release that came out during the Readthon. I cannot wait for May to come around! 🙂
