[Get Read-y] Wrap up

With the start of 2012, Get Read-y for 2012 came to an end. It's been an absolute blast to host this event and I hope you've enjoyed participating in it! I hope your reading piles are a little lower, so you are fully prepared for the awesome of the new year. This wrap up posts consists of a couple parts: wrap up of Get Read-y with feedback form, list of books I read and of course the giveaway. 


Since this was my first time hosting such an event, I would love to get some feedback on how you've experienced it. The form is completely anonymus, so you can say whatever you want. I'd love to get some constructive critisism so I can work on that and make Get Read-y even more awesome this year! Click here to be taken to the form - I would be very grateful if you could take the time to fill it in. If you did not participate for whatever reason, you can still fill in the form - it would help me immensely if you do. It will only take you a minute or two!

Personal wrap up
For me, Get Read-y was a massive success and I hope it has been for you, too. I've read a total of 11 books, 8 of them being review books. I'm going to continue reading merely review books in January to lower that pile even more, but for December, 8 review books is great! Here's a list of the review books I read:

The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood (bought - sequel for review)
If I Tell by Janet Gurtler (NG, bought)
Partials by Dan Wells (proof)

I'm hoping to lower my pile - or as it is, cross books off my review titles list - in January, with first up Firelight. Ziel van Vuur by Sophie Jordan, Cinder by Marissa Meyer, Everneath by Brodi Ashton, Incarnate by Jodi Meadows and Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. I waited to read those until January, because they are 2012 debuts. Sneaky, eh? 

As promised, there's a giveaway for a January release. The only requirement is that the book is available from Bookdepository, since I will be using BD to send out the prize. Just fill in this form to be entered. It's open until January 20th, and I will draw a winner in the weekend. I've decided to leave it for a relatively long time so everyone who participated in Get Read-y has the time to get back to this post :). Remember: participation in Get Read-y is required and any entries from people who haven't participated in the event will be deleted. The winner will be drawn at random and will be notified by e-mail. 


And that's it! It's official - Get Read-y is over. At least, it is for now. I'm hoping to bring it back for December of this year, so if you haven't already filled it in, I would be forever grateful if you fill in this survey

Thank you to everyone who participated - you've made it an amazing experience! I hope to see you again in December of this year, for the second edition of Get Read-y :) Please leave your experiences in the comments - or share your wrap up posts!

Happy reading!


  1. I loved this challenge! I read a whopping 17 books - 10 from my list for this challenge and then a few more. On book on my list I ordered from the library in mid-November and still haven't got it, but I think I more than made up with the extra books.

    I also wrote 20 reviews (3 less than I wanted but hey, that's still a lot!).

    I also updated my review tab and my Shelfari shelf so I very pleased.

    You did absolutely amazing! You can be very proud of yourself :) 20 reviews is amazing! I think I might need to incorporate that in the next challenge, because I only got one done..

    Well done!

  3. I finished all the books I had planned to read in December, plus an extra one! I read a total of 10 books over the course of the month. :) Thanks for running this challenge. It was great motivation!

    I didn't write a wrap-up post for the challenge, but here's my December wrap-up post, which is pretty close:

  4. Thanks for hosting the challenge. It was fun. I was able to complete most of my goals. I look forward to participating in it this year too.
