Bout of Books recap & WINNER!!

The Bout of Books Read-a-Thon is over so now it is time for a re-cap:

Read-a-Thon Goals
  • Read the top Nicki Styx series  (4-DONE), Envy Chronicles series(4-DONE), & The Guardian Angelino's series (3-FAIL).
  • Read at least 10 books (DONE...9 books & 1 novella).  10 is a bare minimum; 21would be my ultimate goal.
  • Write all reviews as I read the books (DONE.)
Books to Review that I also need to read

Other Books I’d Love to Get to
  • The Iron Druid Chronicles series by Kevin Hearne (3-FAIL)
  • 3-4 novellas (1 DONE- Exotic Indulgence by Jess Dee, Vivian Arend, and Lexie Couper)
  • other books: One Grave at a Time by Jeaniene Frost(DONE), Bad Boys Do  by Victoria Dahl(DONE)
Well, overall, I did okay with my goals for the read-a-thon. I got 10 book (9 novels and 1 novella) read for the week and it was a week where I ended up being MUCH busier than normal. So overall, I am okay with what I accomplished. My main accomplishment was staying completely on track with writing my reviews as I finished reading the books (something that I am inordinately bad at when reading series books.)

And now for the part that you all have been waiting for...
the winner of my Pick-a-Series giveaway:
