READ A THON - JULY 11th-13th - 275

What is a Read-a-thon?

A Read-a-thon is where you set a goal for yourself to read more books that is beyond your average number of books you read. There is no minimum, it's all up to you! Push yourself to get some of those books read that have been sitting on your shelves for awhile!  You can read any type of book you choose! 

This read-a-thon is going to held from 12:01 am on July 11th to 11:59 pm on July 13th you read, read, and read some more!

If you're a novel nerd like me- take part will be fun! Sign up here!

Hey there, I'm number 277 on the Book-A-Thon list!


Well, considering my obsession to buy around two-five books EVERY TIME I venture into town AND since not long ago I spent £70 ordering books from Waterstones online- I LOVE WATERSTONES BTW. So I have a few unread novels sitting on my shelf waiting for the spines to be broken!

I am currently- like literally right now; phone acting as a book mark right this second- Forgotten by Cat Patrick! Woo half way through- such a good book so I'm dying to get back to it. I will most probably finish that tonight and I am going to take Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini and Fallen Grace by Mary cooper to conquer over my working weekend. 

So excluding them from my unread pile- lets see what I have left for the read-a-thon. 

The Lady in the Tower by Marie-Louise Jensen
Hereafter by Tara Hudson

The Lost Saint by Bree Despain
Dark Flame by Alyson Noel
Night Star by Alyson Noel

Wildthorn by Jane Eagland
Book 1+3 of Alexandra Harveys series
Evercrossed by Elizabeth Chandler
Night World Volume one by L.J.Smith 

(because sometimes I am clueless and read series backwards, yes I read volume 3 then 2 and have yet to read volume one. And yes I've done it before like with Twlight- I read 2,3,4 and THEN 1 & to add to how stupid you think I am I read the second book in Alexandra's out for blood series and have the 1 + 3 on my shelf. Ohh and the most stupid I have something like the 4th+5th book of Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy Novel- no wonder I couldn't get into it!)

Ohh a few more... but I kind of want to get back to Forgotten by Cat Patrick!!

So I was thinking my challenge for the 3 days would be 4 books, reasonable challenge right? So my own personal challenge will be 5! 

Comment on which books you think I should read from my list in that period!
Also let me know what you think about my own challenge and what your challenge in!

I will keep you updated, send me links so I can see your updates and see what your reading during this book-a-thon!

Happy book-a-thon days!

YAY! It's going to be Coffee+Books+Bed for three pure days!
