Once Upon a Readathon Post!

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon

I just love readathons and have been needing a bit of a kick in the butt this week to read more. So, today starts the Once Upon a Readathon, hosted by Reading Angel. Click here for details.

I started off this morning by picking up my Kindle and starting into Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson, which I'm already 35% of the way through. It's really good. My older sister is coming over later today so I won't have all day to read, but I'm already getting a good start.

Not sure what I'll be reading next but I'm sure to read some manga, more ebooks, and hopefully finish reading Die for Me by Amy Plum, which is good, just a little too ... formulaic of the YA paranormal romance genre, which is putting me off.

Anywho, I will be updating the next few days, so stayed tuned and wish me luck! :)

Day 1 update:

Well, today I read two books. An ebook and a manga. My sister was over with her kids for a few hours so I couldn't read all day.

I read:
Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson (ebook, 306 pages)
Bakuman vol. 2 (manga, 200 pages)

Did the mini-challenge from The Musings of Almybnenr. This involved finding which books belonged to the cover clips she provided. :)

Day 2 Update:

Spellbound by Cara Lynn Schultz (ebook, 324 pages)
Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour by Bryan O'Malley (manga, 248 pages)
Bakuman vol 3 (manga, 192 pages)

No challenges completed.

Day 3 Update:

January (Conspiracy 365) by Gabrielle Lord (print book, 192 pages)
The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood (audiobook, 288 pages)

Total books read: 7
Total pages read: 1,750

I think I did rather well for being somewhat busy two out of the three days. :)

  1. looks like you accomplished a lot. Tried to read my book books, since I am off for the summer. When I am running around crazy, I love my nook. If you get a chance, stop by

  2. Dear Kristen,

    Kudos! to you for getting so much done. Like you, I was busy two (well, technically, one and a half) days out of the three. I did most of my reading at night. I didn't read on an e-reader, but I suppose that adds to the convenience of it all :D How did you like "Spellbound"? I had a blast this read-a-thon, hope you did too! :D

  3. Good job! I've been meaning to read Outliers and haven't until now. Maybe it's time to get my lazy self to do it this weekend. :)

  4. You did a great job! AND you even completed the mini-challenge with the covers, which ... well, I could only figure out three of the answers! :)

  5. Wow! You did fab! I only read 2.5 books :(

  6. Wow that's a lot of books read in 3 days. Good job! I've started a book blog recently if you wanted to check it out.


Leave some love!
