Once Upon a Readathon Day 1

Once Upon A Read-A-Thon

So, I didn't do a ton of actual reading, but I did listen to my audiobook for a good long while - doing housework, etc.

Here's what I read:
Young Bess by Margaret Irwin (finished, about 200 pages)
The Sorcerer of Sainte Felice by Ann Finnin (read about 30 pages, 200 pages left)
The Midnight Charter by David Whitley (audiobook) (listened to about 3 hours, about 7 hours left)

And I'm doing all three of the Mini-Challenges posted for today.

Jenn from Book Crazy challenged us to find music or a picture that reminded us of a favorite character or book. This song by Halestorm really reminds me of the relationship between Katniss and her relationship with Peeta in The Hunger Games Trilogy. Or rather.. my feelings on it? What do you guys think..

For I Just Wanna Sit Here and Read!, I submitted this comment:

1. The song I would choose is a Gregorian Chant of Salve Regina -

2. I am reading The Sorcerer of Sainte Felice by Ann Finnin and just finished Chapter 7.

3. At the end of the chapter there is a ceremony that takes place and one that needs concentration and takes place in the monastery, so I thought of Gregorian Chant.

And lastly, for The Eager Readers' challenge, I just have to tell you a few of my favorite literary couples.

1. Katsa and Po from Graceling by Kristin Cashore
2. Patch and Nora from Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
3. Yelena and Valek from Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
4. Vlad and Cawti from Steven Brust's Vlad Taltos series


  1. Good job, you did better today than I did. Good luck with the next two days.

  2. Nice! I too am listening to and audio book as well as reading. That way my driving time is covered as well. I am listening to Jester by James Patterson and reading the Demonica series by Larissa Ione for the read a thon. Happy reading.

  3. My reading tastes are different to yours but you are putting away quite a pile of books! Good for you.

  4. Pretty good accomplishment there - especially with finding things for the challenges - whenever I try to look up pictures, links, songs, whatever - I tend to get "lost" in the internet and next thing I know I've lost a few hours of reading time. It's like going into a different timezone - what feels like 20 minutes has really taken 2 hours. LOL

  5. You had a great reading day! I read three books too! I probably won't get as much done today...because I'm online already lol.

  6. You had a great first day! I just did one challenge because I wanted to spend more time reading. Have a great day today too!

  7. I am a HUGE fan of Halestorm! I pimp them to just about every person I can find! It's great to find another fan. This absolutely makes me more excited to read Hunger Games (I'm one of those holdouts that is waiting for the entire series to come out before reading--I hate the waiting).

    I'm really behind on my Google Reader--so sorry I'm commenting so late!


Leave some love!
