Today is the last day of the Summer Series Challenge!
This Challenge is the first that my co-host Lauren and I have organized,
and I think I speak for both of us in saying it has been a fun and challenging experience.
I wanted to take this opportunity to issue a giant
THANK YOU to everyone who signed up and participated.
There are a ton of great reading challenges out there and Lauren, Asheley and I really appreciate all of you showing an interest in this one.
I also want to thank some of the absolutely FABULOUS people who guest posted as part of Series Challenge Fridays--authors and bloggers alike:
* a special thanks to Miranda for providing a SIGNED ARC of Racing Savannah as a giveaway:)
Lauren and I are absolutely blown away that all of these people jumped in and participated in this challenge, each devoting their valuable time and energy to write incredible
and insightful discussion posts.
We are both so grateful for each and every one of these guest posters and
owe them a debt of gratitude.
Thank you again:)
Personally I read quite a bit over the summer, but only achieved a few of my goals.
I finished two series that I hoped to:
The Fire and Thorns series by Rae Carson and
The Immortal Beloved series by Cate Tiernan.
I also started a series I always wanted to read:
The Queen's Thief by Meghan Whalen Turner.
While I didn't finish the series, I read the first two books and started the third, I'm still really happy that I made that one of my goals--
if for no other reason then it got me off my duff and reading.
So, while I may not have completed this Challenge fully,
I'm still really pleased with what I did accomplish.
And now Lauren, Asheley and I want to hear from YOU.
How did you do? Did you complete all of your reading goals? Some of them?
And most importantly, we would like for you to tell us what you thought of the Challenge. We want constructive criticism and feedback. What worked? What didn't? What can we improve upon for the next Challenge? What would you like to see more or less of?
We welcome any and all suggestions, just leave us a comment or email us if you prefer.
We want to know what to do to make this Challenge something YOU want to do every year:)
For those of you who entered some of our awesome giveaways, thank you!
We are wrapping up the contests and notifying the winners.
So be sure to check your inbox--you might be one of them!
