Once Upon a Readathon Finale
Well, the readathon is just about over and I'm reporting on how I did. I know there's still an hour to go, and I'll keep reading until midnight, but I know I won't be able to finish the last book. That's okay. It's ended up being a lot harder to get through than I thought (because it's an e-book, not because I don't like it - I just can't read them as fast), so I'll just keep working on it.
Here are my results: Finished: Dante's Girl, Courtney Cole Degrees of Wrong, Anna Scarlet Pandemonium, Lauren Oliver The Serpent's Shadow, Rick Riordan Progress: Grasping at Eternity, Karen Amanda Hooper - 68 Started: Nocturnal, Chelsea M. Cameron - 13 Transcendence, C.J. Omololu - 75 Today's Challenges: #1: What's your most anticipated release of 2012? This one is easy for me: Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness!! I am reading it right now and WHOA. LOVE. (This challenge was hosted by Christy @ The Reader Bee.) #2: Match the following list of characters into their best friend groups: Cassel Emerson Hermione Jessica Sam Clary Harry Hope Lily Simon This was harder than I thought. Obviously, I'm not going to post my answer here...you'll have to work it out on your own! :P (This challenge was hosted by Al @ Magnet 4 Books) Overall, I feel like I did really well in this readathon. I didn't get nearly as much reading time as I'd have liked because of some things that came up, but I'm pleased with how it went. I will definitely participate in the future! Many thanks to Lori & Candace for hosting!
(Also, I'm hosting my own readathon coming up over Labor Day weekend! It'll be Strictly Sequels to help clear our shelves...stay tuned for updates!)
