My "Once Upon a Time Read-a-thon" Final Update!

Today was the last day of the Once Upon a Read-a-thon...  
And I have to say, I'm a little proud of myself :)

Here are the books that I read in the last 3 days: 
A Pug's Tale by Alison Pace (304 pages) 
Insignia by S.J. Kincaid (finished reading the last 328 pages)
29 by Adena Halpern (280 pages)
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (finished reading the last 300 pages)
- Frozen Heart by Annabelle Blume (95 pages)
- Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson (started reading... on page 39)

I may have went a bit overboard in the beginning because I definitely got burnt out on the last day, lol! I was only able to read a small book today and the beginning of another. 
But overall, not too shabby for my second read-a-thon! I was better prepared this time around.
It's really good to set a somewhat realistic goal with books you think you're going to love :)

A big thank you to Lori of Pure Imagination, Angela of Reading Angel
Candace of Candace's Book Blog, those of you that created mini-challenges, 
and of course, all the awesome participants who stopped by with comments and encouragement!!! 
You all rock :) 

I look forward to the next one!
Happy reading :) 


  1. Wow, look at you go! That's awesome! Yeah, I definitely didn't pick the right books. I started with slow books that made me avoid them for the majority of the read-a-thon, LOL. Congrats on reaching your goals this year :0)

  2. Congratulations on reaching your goal, that's awesome!!

    I want to read Tiger Lilly!! Can't wait...

  3. I only read about 100 pages on Wed. I had to work, but I was a little burnt out too. I happy you got so much read!

  4. You did awesome! Congrats on meeting your goal

  5. 6 books? Whoa! You did fantastic! Congratulations :)
