Fairy Tale Readathon Wrap-Up


All in all, I finished six novels in the six days of the readathon, which was exactly my target.

I also read Rapunzel's Revenge and Calamity Jack as an extra treat at the very end of the readathon. I love these books and it was the perfect end to the readathon.

I didn't end up reading any more of my Tales from Grimm and Andersen book, which I had kind of expected but hoped I'd be wrong about. I think it's time to put it away for now. I read most of it, and I have been working through the stories since last August. I'm willing to say I got through it.

I also did not read The Near Witch, because I chose to read In a Glass Grimmly instead, since it was based on fairy tales rather than just having a fairy tale-esque feel.

Additionally, I wrote a discussion post on Fairy Tales and Disney, about how the Disney versions of classic fairy tale characters are now many people's only versions of those characters.

I didn't keep track of the hours I spent reading, but I read a total of 2,106 pages. The shortest books were Rapunzel's Revenge and Calamity Jack, each 144 pages. The shortest novel-length book was In A Glass Grimmly, at 252 pages, and the longest was Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow, at 336 pages.

I tried to comment on the blogs of everyone else participating in the readathon,  to cheer them on, but even if I missed your blog (whoops), Congratulations!

Happy reading to everyone,

Wow, you did amazing, and congrats on reaching your goal!

How was In A Glass Grimmly, was it as great as A Tale Dark & Grimm?

Thanks everyone for your support. I had lots of fun during the readathon and loved every book I read.

In A Glass Grimmly was really good. I liked the narrator's comments better in In A Glass Grimmly, but I preferred A Tale Dark and Grimm overall. I would definitely give it a try if you liked A Tale Dark and Grimm though!
