Victoria (nemerith) | 425 comments Here my review of this year's RAT

Give us the Scoop:
✓ Number of days/hours spent reading: 33h over many days (damn you work!)
✓ Number and/or list of books read: 10 full books and 27% of Revenge & Rapture
✓ Number of pages read: 2622 pages

Optional Add'l Info to Share:
✓ Did you find it fun or was it more of a chore to complete?
I wish I could have done like I had planned, so that was a bit of a bummer, but reading is always fun :D

✓ Is this your first time participating in a Read-a-Thon? If so, would you participate again or was once enough? If not, how did this year's RAT compare?
This is my second year, must say I enjoyed last year more, but then I had more time.

✓ Did you choose RAT books in advance? If so, were you able to read all of the books you'd set aside? Did you find yourself straying from your chosen books and reading more based on mood or another reason?
I chose some of my books in advance, which was easy since they were ARCs :)

✓ Did you have a favorite reading spot?
The sofa is always my prefered spot, with one cat sleeping on me and the other one curled up under my blanket.

✓ Did you find it difficult to stick to your reading schedule? If so, how'd ya overcome it?
This year was very difficult, a lot of interruptions and stuff to do in between :(

✓ Did you discover a new series, author or genre?
A few new series from known authors.

✓ Did you read alone or with a partner?
I read alone.

✓ Which book format(s) did you use for your RAT? Audio, Paperback/Hardcover (DTB), or eBook OR did you use a mix of formats?
eBooks for the win!!!
