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!
