For the first time ever, I will be participating in Dewey’s Read-a-Thon. I will be missing a large chunk of it because I’m going to see Beauty and the Beast in theatre with friends, but when I’m not out being social I promise to return to my recluse ways and get some reading done.
My Reading List
- Cardboard Characters by Julie Seifert (e-book)
Above by Leah Bobet
- Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia
Starters by Lissa Price
- Touching Darkness by Scott Westerfeld
Considering I won’t be able to read from 10AM until 6PM because of social engagements, I think that’s a pretty good goal. You can keep track of my progress at this post or on twitter.
Update #1 It’s 9PM and I just finished my first book of the read-a-thon. Feel like a bit of a failure, but hey, that’s what happens when you have plans to see a musical on a day that turns out to be a read-a-thon day. I’m tired, but I plan to keep reading for the next eleven hours (except for a half hour break before midnight in which I’ll try to get some writing done so I DON’T BREAK THE CHAIN!) Beauty and the Beast was great by the way. Review of it will be going up this upcoming week.
Update #2 The read-a-thon is officially over! I finished my second book, Starters by Lissa Price, at around midnightish. By that time I was pretty tired, but I tried to push through a bit of Beautiful Creatures, but a headache had set in, so I switched to manga, but couldn’t recover and had to go to bed at 1PM 😦 Woke up at 7:57 AM and read a couple more pages of the Sailor V #2 manga to finish of the read-a-thon. Even though I didn’t get to participate as much as I wanted to, I still had an excellent time. Next time, I want to participate in the mini-challenges and not go away during my prime reading time!
