Series Crackdown Reading Recap

Hey everyone! Sunday marked the last day of the Series Crackdown Readathon, and now it’s time for my final update on how it went.

I didn’t keep very good records of exactly how many pages/days I read during this readathon, so this post is probably going to be very short and very general.

I started off the readathon on a good note by starting and finishing Once We Were by Kat Zhang. Then I started reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. About halfway through that book, I put it down and started reading the first few chapters of Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. By the end of the week, I had finished both of those books, thanks to a bout of frantic reading during the last two days of the readathon. I ended up finishing Strange the Dreamer maybe 15 minutes before midnight on Sunday.

Overall, I ended up completing 7 of the 8 challenges for the readathon by reading 3 books.

Those three books were, as I mentioned earlier, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling, Once We Were by Kat Zhang, and Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. I ended up using Prisoner of Azkaban to count for far too many challeneges, but here’s a little rundown of all the challenges and what books I read for them.

  1. First book in a series- Strange the Dreamer
  2. Sequel- Once We Were
  3. Last book in a series- not completed
  4. A long series- Prisoner of Azkaban
  5. 10+ years old-Prisoner of Azkaban
  6. Popular series on your TBR- Strange the Dreamer
  7. Been on your TBR forever- Prisoner of Azkaban
  8. Film/TV Adaptation- Prisoner of Azkaban

And that’s really about it. I think I did pretty good overall on this one, though I had originally wanted to read 5 or even 6 books and I only got to 3. I could have read a lot more if I had just tried a little harder.

Considering part of my goal for this readathon was to catch up on my Goodreads challenge, I would say I didn’t do a very good job. Although I read 3 books, I am still 8 books behind on my challenge, whereas at the beginning of the readathon I was 9 books behind.

So yes, I technically made up a little, but not enough.

You can definitely expect to see some more readathon posts in the future, since I still have a lot to make up. Hopefully those will go better than this one did.

Thanks for reading, everyone! I’ll see you next time.
