Read-a-thon: Hour 24 - I.Freaking.Did.It!

End of Event Meme
1) Which hour was most daunting for you?
Definitely between 4AM and 5AM. I thought I would faint, BUT I didn't! :D 
2) Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I figured that Contemporary Romance is the best genre to read during a Read-a-thon. It's simple, fun, cute and easy to go trough. All the others take more time.
3) Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?
I think it was perfect <3 I wouldn't change any of it ;)
4) What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
Twitter was awesome, the songs posted every hour on the official page were completely hilarious and they really made the spirit! The cheerleaders were cool :) And the random facts about life were so funny I really need to write them down somewhere! 
5) How many books did you read? 
Almost two.
6) What were the names of the books you read?
The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa - 379 pages
The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines - 71% - 220 pages
Total pages read: 599 - FREAKING AMAZING. I am so proud!! :)
7) Which book did you enjoy most?
The Vincent Brothers - I've really connected with the main character and it was easier to read.
8) Which did you enjoy least?
Uh huh, I still enjoyed The Lost Prince :P It was nice to see Meghan and Ash again. 
9) If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?
I wasn't a cheerleader this year, but I would advice to make more teams the next year so they'll have a lesser people blogs to cheer and therefor cheer more. Did it sound like I wanted it? hmm.. I think it was hard for them to go trough all the list more then once or twice because the lists were too big. Ok, that should have explained it allright :P
10) How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
As much as I love to cheer people, I fear I can only do it on twitter if I want to participate like a reader :P I love this event so much :) Really makes me feel part of the community! ;) So all of you who contributed to this fabulous event: THANK YOU <3

And OMG I freaking won a prize in the last hour!! Yeeeey :) I really think I rock :P :P hihi

What about you? Did you enjoy the readathon as much as I did? :)

You did awesome! I only read 360 pages - boo!
And I DEFINITELY agree with you on 4-5 a.m being the toughest. That's when I decided I needed to take a nap or else I'd pass out. :D
