A Year of Orenda – The Third Quarter Review

So here we are – quarter three. By the summer, Mandie and I were well into the Orenda bookathon and loving every minute of it. It was a little quieter over the summer – covid derailing even the best laid plans, and to allow us a little flexibility we did do a reshuffle for a few posts and features in the second half of the year. But there was no let up and our vow to feature every single Orenda title this year to celebrate their 5th anniversary continued with gusto. So how did we do? Well, here are a few stats;

Total books featured – 107
(105 paperback and 2 ebooks)
Total Reviews – 127
Feature Posts – 19

Total Orenda Books Read
Jen – 111
Mandie – 65 (from just 4 at the start of the year!!!)

I know – we did well. And how did the third quarter pan out? Well here you go …

Eek. Getting closer to the end now. We had fun in this second half of the year, pulling together a few more feature author weeks than we’d originally planned and combining them with lovely giveaways. Hopefully we’ve created a few more Orenda author fans this year along the way. Tomorrow we will be rounding up and rounding off. Do pop back.
