I can't believe that Spring is over and Summer has began. So that means the Spring Reading Thing has ended. :( This was my first time participating in something like this so I had chose six books but quickly added a few along the way. You can see my original post here. Now to my results (I'll be using the questions suggested by Katrina):
Did you finish all the books you had planned to read? If not, why?
I finished ten books, four books I started but couldn't get into so moved on, and two books are still on my TBR pile. The two books I never read I just wasn't in the mood to read them and always picked up something else.
Do you think the challenge helped you read more? Or maybe helped you read books you otherwise wouldn't have read?
The challenge definitely helped me read more because I really wanted to read all the books on my list. I don't think it really helped me to read books I wouldn't have read normally.
What was your favorite book you read this spring? Least favorite?
That is a tough question but I think one of my favorites that I read was The Tale of Holly How by Susan Witting Albert, it's a really charming cozy mystery and I'm really enjoying this series. My least favorite was The Duchess and the Dragon by Jamie Carie. I know a lot of people have read her books and love them but this was the first and only book I will be reading by her. I really didn't enjoy this book at all.
Did you discover any new authors or genres that you now love?
Yes, I did. I discovered a new series I am really enjoying. The first book in the series is Eden Hall..can't remember the author..sorry. I had never read anything by this author and I really enjoyed Eden Hall and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the series.
What did you learn about your reading habits or interests?
That depending in my mood on may want to read a cozy mystery or a historical romance or chick lit or whatever...it all depends on my mood. Which is why I didn't start reading Boo Who or Sisterchicks in Sombreros...just wasn't in the mood.
Are you interested in another "Fall into Reading" challenge this fall?
