Summer TBR Wipeout 2018 – Wrap-up

Unfortunately the Summer TBR Wipeout reading challenge is already coming to its end!  Now it’s time to do a wrap-up of whether that TBR was wiped out or not. This wonderful reading challenge is hosted by the Candid Cover every year, and I had loads of fun taking part in it.


In my intro post, I listed 14 books to be read and I pledged to read at least 10 books within the reading challenge.


Here’s my progress with the original TBR:


The symbol at the top left corner shows whether I read the book or not.

✔️ = Read!

✖️ = Did not get to this one

🔄 = Currently reading

I finished 7 books from my TBR and I’m currently reading two. That means that I did not read five books from the TBR. I’m pretty happy with 7 books finished because I am magnificiently bad at following my own TBRs. I can never predict what my bookaholic heart desires! I thought I would have done a lot worse than 7!

Books read off TBR:


In addition to the 7 books I read from my TBR, I also read 4 books I didn’t plan to read. Funnily I can now see why I went off-TBR: all of these four were audiobooks. During my intro post I simply didn’t remember to add enough audiobooks in my TBR! Maybe one day I’ll learn 😂


I read 11 books during the Summer TBR Wipeout reading challenge! That means I reached my goal of 10 books!

6 of the books were audiobooks, 3 physical copies and two ebooks.

In total I read 3593 pages and my average rating was 3.61/5 stars.

If you’re interested in my opinions on the books I read, I have mini reviews of Every Heart a Doorway, My Favourite Thing is Monsters, Binti, Memory of Water, The Way of Kings, and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo in my July Wrap-up post. Mini reviews on Vicious, The Nightingale, Down Among the Sticks and Bones, the Abhorsen, and Hunted will be up in my August Wrap-up at the end of the month. Keep your eyes peeled for that 👀 (If you would rather not wait, add me in Goodreads!)


Thank you so much to the Candid Cover for hosting this challenge!!

I’m going to continue on reading State of Sorrow (which I have almost finished already!) and Queens of Innis Lear (which I have only read 10 pages of). What are you currently reading? Have you read any of the books I listed above? Chat me in the comments 😊

Thank you so much for reading!

    1. Yess I can’t wait to pick up other books by Schwab! Before I had read anything by her I already trusted her to be an awesome writer and bought all of the Darker shade of magic series and the our savage song series 😅 Now I could just get reading! I hope to start Onyx and Ivory + Ruin and Rising soon too!
