A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon 2012 Wrap up Post

It is Sunday evening and I am soon on my way to bed. I have really enjoyed this week of A Winter's Respite Respite Read-a-Thon 2012.

My goal of this week was to read at least 6 books and I passed that goal as I ended up finishing 7 books.

This is the list:
  1. Hidden by Kelley Armstrong. 200 pages - paranormal novella
  2. Trader by Charles de Lint. 356 pages - fantasy 
  3. LightMasters: Number 13 by MG Wells. 196 pages- sci-fi, fantasy
  4. Message in a Bottle by Nicholas Sparks. 388 pages - sad romance 
  5. Sojourn by Jana Oliver. 369 pages - fantasy
  6. Pawn of Prophecy by David Eddings. 274 pages - fantasy
  7. The Penal Colony by Richard Heyley. 311 pages - sci-fi I think
All in all approximately 2000 pages this week. Not at all bad going.

Of all the books I had really looked forward to, Hidden by Kelley Armstrong, one of my favourite  authors, did not disappoint. I know some of Charles de Lints other books and will buy more of his books. Jana Oliver was not completely new either as I have read the first 2 books in her Demon Trapper series and I have already bought the next 2 books that follow Sojourn.
The last 4 authors I had not read before. I will most likely try to find more books by both David Eddings, Richard Herley and Nicholas Sparks. I am not sure about M.G. Wells unless they are free.

I also won a prize during this Read-a-Thon:

The Wandering Valkyr by Dan Wright

I am looking forward to reading this book.
