Summer Lovin’ Read-a-Thon: Day 7

Format: select

SummerLovinBadge2Summer Lovin’ runs from July 1-7. This is a no-pressure Read-a-Thon – the point is to have fun and to tackle your summer TBR list. Set your own goals and enjoy participating in posts, challenges, and giveaways! It will all culminate in a 24-hr marathon read-a-thon, from Saturday July 6th at 10am EST, to Sunday July 7th at 10am EST.

Today is the last day of the Read-a-Thon, and today’s discussion topic is…

Alma Mater

You are graduating today–list your accomplishments big and small for the week. Hop around and congratulate all of your friends on their accomplishments.

WE MADE IT, GUYS!!! Well, at least, we’re almost there. Because it’s 9pm PST on Saturday night, and there’s still 10 hours of the Greased Lightnin’ marathon read-a-thon left! And then 14 hours of the regular read-a-thon left after that! But we’re so close.

My rough plan for the read-a-thon was to, first, finish the book I was reading (done), finish three books during the week (done), and then read my first Sarah Dessen book for the 24-hr Greased Lightnin’ marathon read-a-thon… I’m currently SUPER close to finishing The Truth About Forever, so my final goal will definitely be accomplished as well! DONE! I’ve officially finished The Truth About Forever, and have moved on to Golden, by Jessi Kirby. We’ll see how far I get, but at this point, it’s just icing on the cake!

I’m so excited that this was my first read-a-thon! I set goals for myself that I thought were a bit of a reach, and then I accomplished them with a little time to spare. :D

More than anything though, this week has just been a blast. I’ve loved participating in the daily posts and challenges (even though I let day 6 slide… oops… I WAS BUSY READING OKAY), and making new blogger friends via the participation posts and Twitter! I can honestly say that, as my first read-a-thon experience, Summer Lovin’ has made me want to get involved in even more read-a-thons in the future. Thank you SO MUCH to the hosts – Oh, Chrys!, Tumbling Books, Effortlessly Reading, Love Life Read, Shelf Addiction, Read Sleep Repeat, and Reviewing Wonderland – you all put together a seriously fun week!! YOU GUYS ROCK!!

  1. Congratulations for a job well done, Nikki! If you’ll excuse me, I need to hop around to congratulate everyone. :D It’s a good thing that you kept track of the time. I’m from Asia and it’s driving me mad to keep track of the time, unorganized that I am.

    Thoughts and Pens

  2. Yay! I’m so happy and proud that you picked Summer Lovin’ as your first read-a-thon and you had so much fun! We really appreciate all your participation and woohoo for finishing so many books!!

  3. You did amazingly!! :) I love readathons. I’ve done at least 10 and have no plans on stopping. They space out nicely for when I get in reading ruts.

  4. Congratulations on 3 read books! There’s 3 on your list that I want to read so I’m hoping to get to them soon. I had so much fun getting to know you better. Glad you had fun participating. :D
