Spring Fling Read-A-Thon: Final Update

The Spring Fling Read-A-Thon, a Seasonal Read-a-Thon, was hosted from May 15 until today, June 15! The idea was to read books based on the prompts below. Here is my final update and roundup of books I read for this challenge and these prompts:


Flower Power – a book covered in flowers


Popping Daisies – a new spring release


Bird Song – a musical book


Spring Clean – a book you’ve been meaning to read forever


Nature Calls – a book surrounded in nature


Ice Cream – a book that melts your heart


Spring Showers – a book that makes you cry


In total, I read 7/10 books for this challenge, which I think is pretty good! My favorites were definitely between THE BRIGHTSIDERS, MY SO-CALLED BOLLYWOOD LIFE, and WHEN MY HEART JOINS THE THOUSAND. They were all so different, both from each other and from most YA books out there. My least favorite books were THE DEEPEST ROOTS, which had cool magic but flat characters and boring plot, and THE OTHER SIDE OF LOST, which was also boring and just did nothing for me. I didn’t like THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL as much as I hoped, so I’m glad I didn’t end up preordering it (especially since it was the full list price when it was preorder time), which was disappointing because I had loved I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE so much. THE SECRET OF A HEART NOTE was cute and I’m glad I finally read it, but ultimately I’ll probably forget it in a couple more months.

  1. Looks like you did really well for the Readathon! 🙂 I’m very sad that it’s over, but maybe they’ll do more Readathons for another season? Anyways, I had a lot of fun doing this Readathon and I’m glad to hear that you read books that you ended up loving, even if there were some disappointments as well.
