House Cup Reading Challenge – WRAP-UP

Oh my goodness guys, I have been MIA again and I am so sorry. We have had some nasty bugs floating around our house lately so when I haven’t been laying in bed feeling sorry for myself, I have been busy taking care of the man and the child. But things are starting to get back to normal now, which means I finally have the time to sit down and let you know how I went with the House Cup Reading Challenge.

If you missed it, you can read all about the House Cup Reading Challenge HERE, and also see what my TBR was for the challenge.

So how did I do…

Out of the 20 prompts I managed to read 13 of them. 13 books in 4 weeks! I am pretty damn proud of myself for that number.

Each prompt was worth a certain number of points, so from the books I read I gained a total of 200 points.

200 Points for Ravenclaw!

Like I said, I am super proud of myself. 13 books in 4 weeks is huge for me, as I really don’t get as much reading time as I would like. But I have really made the effort to squeeze it into every moment I could, and it has really paid off. Not only was it super fun, but it also helped me to complete my goodreads goal! I really enjoyed taking part in this challenge and I definitely want to do more reading challenges in the future.
