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)
- Hallowed by Cynthia Hand (NG)
- Adorkable by Sarra Manning (proof)
- 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!
