Bout of Books Read-A-Thon 10 Goal Results



Bout of Books is over! I’m a little sad but I’m also looking forward to relaxing a bit on the reading. I enjoyed doing this so much, I had a lot of fun and it truly pushed me to read more then I have been in a while. It’s motivated me to go back to reading AT LEAST 1 book a week so I can release weekly reviews. I wish I had been able to participate in more Twitter chats but I did what I could. I look forward to the next one and every one after that!

There were my Goals:

  • Read at least 1 hour or 50-100 pages per day.
  • Read 2-3 books for that week.
  • To read 700-900 pages throughout the week.
  • Write 1-2 reviews during the week.
  • Participate in at least 2 Twitter chats.
  • Participate in 1-2 daily challenges.

The results:

About The Dark Reading Room

I LOVE reading and I have hundreds of awesome books on my bookshelf. I started blogging so I could connect with like-minded people and share my thoughts on what I read with others. I’m pretty open minded when it comes to reading, I enjoy reading anything like; true crime, biographies and so on but my favourite genre is YA paranormal books. Non-book related things: I’m a metalhead, I love going to concerts, some of my favourite TV shows are Supernatural, True Blood, Walking Dead, Vampire Diaries, Firefly... I’m a hardcore gamer and play games like COD, Halo, Gears of War, Borderlands, Final Fantasy, The Last of Us, Dead Rising and much more!
