I loved participating in Fraterfest! My only complaint is that I wish it would have been a longer event!! A week at least!! There are so many challenges that I haven't had a chance to participate in yet. Just wish there was more time!!

Thank you guys so much for taking time to host this (Kimba) and for the rest of the bloggers for all the challenges. You guys are awesome! I think this should be a week long event next year!

Thanks so much for hosting this read-a-thon! I wish I had a less busy weekend so that I could have been more involved. At least I got a bit of reading in, and a lot of audio book listening. Hope to see you all next weekend at the 24-hour-read-a-thon (www.24hourreadathon.com)!

Ha, so glad you had fun Heather. For my first read-a-thon as a host..i am happy with the result, tired but happy. So glad you liked Frater and Pretty When She Kills is more action packed than the first..if that is possible. I hope to host another fest in the future <3

This was an awesome event for my first Read-a-thon! I thoroughly enjoyed all of the challenges, and while I didn't get to read near as much as I wanted to, I'm definitely happy with this whole process. Kimba, I think you did an excellent job putting all of this together!

Unfortunately, I did terribly at this challenge! I finished only one book (which I LOVED!!!) and with the kidlets running amok all weekend I had no time to participate in any of the spooktacular events. But you've made a Frater-fan lifer out of me so, YAY!
Thanks for hosting this awesome read-a-thon!!!! <3 it!!!

I loved everything about it :) Loved the twitter party, and all the mini challenges, they were so much fun, so thank you Kimba for hosting this read-a-thon, and thank you to all the challenge hosts :) No suggestions, except please host another one soon!

I just wish I read more, so I'm a little disappointed in myself...

I know you enjoyed Rot & Ruin, but what about Alice in Zombieland?

Ooh you read quite a few books! What did you think of Alice in Zombieland? I know that's been getting some very mixed thoughts! Good luck with the review-writing now. :)

As you know I loved Fraterfest! I had a blast with all of the challenges and really enjoyed the twitter party! Honestly I don't really have any criticisms, just make the next one bigger and better (if that's possible :p). Thank you so much, I can't wait to participate in more of your hosted events in the future! ^.^
