Many of us make reading plans each month, which we find we are unable to complete within the timeframe. Then, the unfinished books get re-shelved on the tbr or linger at the bottom of our "currently reading" shelf forever, taunting us like Marley's ghost. This is your chance to break the chains you've forged in life... (Uh, this year.)

Mission: Choose five books you planned to read THIS YEAR, which you were unable to accomplish. Then, Bust 'em, Dr. Venkman!

Dates: October 1 - December 31, 2016

Danielle | 56 comments There's a few series in which I just need to read the last book or books I've started but didn't complete. Great idea to put them in a list.

1. Mockingjay - completed
2. Clockwork Angel
3. The One -completed
4. The Battle of the Labyrinth
5. Sweet Reckoning - completed

Completed: 3/5

Sonia | 430 comments I know this is for books you've started, but could I use it for books I planned to read but keep avoiding?

That's what I was planning to do, Sonia. Books that I keep pushing off when I get distracted by other more shiny books.

Definitely! It's for both started and planned. Anything you thought you'd get to but didn't ... And maybe feel guilty about. :P

Sonia | 430 comments Well I've managed one of them. It was Mockingjay and probably the easiest of them all.

Anyone read Lark Rise to Candleford? What it is like?

I have read Lark Rise to Candleford, which is actually three novels and really enjoyed them. I got a good idea of what life was like in a British village at the time, with likeable characters.

Sonia | 430 comments Anyone else having problems with this? I'm lacking motivation.

Renee M | 4720 comments Mod
I've done 3 of 5. All audio.

message 17: by Sonia (new)

Sonia | 430 comments Absolutely not progressing on this.

Though I have read and really enjoyed Havelock the Warrior, which my Mum has been nagging me to read for over 20 years. It features her home town of Grimsby.

I think I'm going to have to call this one done for myself at 3 of 5 completed. I just don't think I'll finished the last 2 in time. :(

Hey, 3 is still good! The readathon helped me finish my last one - The Dead Travel Fast. I'm ready for a new year of haunting now. :)
