Fantastically Diverse - Wrap Up and a Question!

Hola amazing people! Don't be fooled by the title! This post is basically me talking about how amazingly I failed at my own Read-A-Thon. Scroll down at your own peril to hear me lament about my ever growing baby (Her name is TBR pile) and maybe scream "Off with their heads" because I'm oh so sad about my failure! Oh but also, I've a question for you guys!

Okay so for my Read-A-Thon I'd decided to be a level 2 participant and read 14 books!


Here are the books I was supposed to read

My Progress



Currently Reading


I read just 5 out of 14 guys!! I swear I've never seen a more pathetic ratio!!

So Okay, we can see you failed miserably Uma but did anything good come off the whole Read-A-Thon?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say YES

I discovered amazing new authors and books!

I'm in love with the world of Labyrinth Lost and loved Yangsze Choo's writing (Another book set in the same world as The Ghost Bride is in progress! EEEP!)! And I'll definitely be picking up more of Corinne Duyvis' books (All of her books are diverse and awesome!)♥

And while I didn't stick to my TBR, I did pick up other diverse reads!

I helped you grapes pick up more diverse reads!

Yes I did, don't argue with me! Loads of love to all those who joined in ♥♥♥♥♥♥

And now I've a question for you peeps!

Would you participate in the read-a-thon if I made it a regular thing? A bi-monthly or tri-monthly or quarterly read-a-thon where we all read diverse books from our TBR! The Read-A-Thon would still be low-key (It's totally up to you how many books you want to read!) but would help us take control of out TBRs and we get to read more diverse books!! That's such a win-win situation! I'd love to do that if people would like to take part ♥ And no, you need not participate every single time! :)

Tell me what you think about this idea below! Would you like to participate in a regular Fantastically Diverse Read-A-Thon? How regular? Do you know anyone who'd like to participate (Basically me asking you to spread the word ūüėĚ)?
