#MakeMeRead Read-A-Thon Recap

If you weren't aware this last week there was a readathon hosted by Val @ The Innocent Smiley and Ely @ A Book So Fathomless, called Make Me Read It. Basically, people(you) voted on what people participating would read and then we read. Anyway, I just thought I'd do a short recap of what I read, a few vague thoughts on each book(full reviews to come) and whatnot.

*All ratings mentioned are subject to change, by the way.

I put up 5 books to vote on and said I'd get to 2/3 and I read 3 so...bam!

Vague Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this one! It was very gripping and I wasn't often bored with it, I even shipped the ship which is something I know a lot of people had problems with with this one. There were some things I didn't like but overall, a good pick!

Vague Thoughts:

Um, I loved it obviously. The feels! My heart still hurts from them. I had to get reassurances from Twitter before finishing this one because I was so afraid of how it would end! So, thanks everyone for that! Altogether, this was definitely another winner.

Ermahgerd. That's all.

So obviously, you guys did an excellent job in your voting and choosing because I loved all these books! And the feels! I am overwhelmed with them. Don't look, it's too painful.

So, what did you read during the readathon!?? All good choices, bad, some of each???? If you didn't do the readathon, still answer the questions in regard to whatever you've been reading recently!


  1. there was so much hype surrounding TWC, i loved the amount of intelligence between kestrel and arin and how it wasn't just bland banter. plus, the bite and sting games were awesome!

    made you up got a lot of praise and i hope to be able to read that one soon! i read grave mercy and it was meh but i heard a lot of good things about this one. a lot of people tell me that it's the best in the series.

    1. The bite and sting games were awesome! And you're totally right, it was nice not to just have the bland banter that everyone is going for these days.

      Made You Up was ssoooo good, I definitely recommend it. And yeah, I definitely think the series gets better with every book, Grave Mercy was my least favorite, but I'm kind of tied between Mortal Heart and Dark Triumph. =)

  2. Yay I'm SO glad that you loved Mortal Heart! I have a tie for which one in that series was my favorite, and one of those is MH. I just loved it so much. "Ermahgerd. That's all." <-- HAHAHA YES EXACTLY.

    I haven't read the other two, but they are ones that are HIGH UP on my want-to-read-so-badly list. They sound amazing! I'm glad your Make Me Read It read-a-thon books were a success. :)

    1. It was so so good! Like, the romance, it gave me mixed feelings, because I loved it, and I shipped it, but it was kind of...weird? But all together, it's tied with Dark Triumph for my favorite of the series! Basically, it's one of those books that I really wish I could go back and read again for the first time even though I only read it like two weeks ago. =)

      Obviously, I, like everyone else, definitely recommend Made You Up and Winner's Curse, the former more than the latter. =)

  3. I ALSO READ THE WINNER'S CURSE. And it was good! Though I still have to write my review for it hahah! BUT OHHHH MORTAL HEART. I now need to read that. Soon.

    SO GLAD YOU JOINED IN THE READATHON SHAY! I hope you had tons of fun!
