Bout of Books READ-A-THON

Readers unite!  Amanda from On a Book Bender decided to host a read-a-thon this coming week, just for fun.  Love it.  Although not an ideal week for me since I start a new job tomorrow (yay) and am getting over being sick (boo), not to mention that I have a lot of work to do on my writing/revisions, I am p-s-y-c-h-e-d (why, yes, I was a high school cheerleader!).  My goals for my week in the read-a-thon are:

1. Read a minimum 10 books, at least eight of which are MG or YA.
2. Get the majority of the books from the library (my husband's rule).
3. Keep my fellow read-a-thoners (is this a word?  it is now) updated on my progress as I'm sure everyone awaits my news with bated breath.

I did buy two books from my to-read shelf this afternoon (prompting my husband's library rule): 13 Treasures by Michelle Harrison and Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.  I will read these two first and get the remainder from the library tomorrow or Tuesday night.  The read-a-thon starts tomorrow and goes through Sunday.  Let's! Get! Reading!


  1. I can't wait to see your review of Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children - My daughter really wants to read it. She says it looks like her kind of book. Which I suppose should really scare me, but she's 18, the youngest of 3 and nothing surprises me anymore :) Good luck with the read-a-thon. This is going to be a fun week!

  2. Readathoners is definitely a word. It's like marathoners, but we read instead of run. ;)

    Happy reading!

  3. Your excitement is contagious, lol! I am def more excited and can't wait to see what books you get from the library=)

    Happy Reading!


I love to get comments! Please keep them PG as I am writing for kids and young adults and hope some of them will find their way here.
