The Goal:


I was bored so the above image looks a little crazy...

I am going to update my challenge everyday at around noon and before I go to bed (if I don't fall asleep first...). Basically telling you all where I am at beginning June 7. I'm going to try to figure out how to do this where you can see it everyday. It will most likely be on one post because I want to add some reviews in between but we will see. I will be posting up what page/book I am on, if I have read anything yet and if so what have I read as well as how many pages I've read. I know there are little challenges in between so I should be posting those up on the same post if I end up participating in them. 

I am using a Fortune Favors the Brave post and a Read and Reviewed post as a sort of template of how I will be posting up my updates. I also previewed Fortune's goal list to help me figure out how to do this since I've never done a read-a-thon in my life. It'll probably not be exactly the same but I seriously needed tips on how to do this... so thanks for being organized Sarah and Merin!

Hopefully I read all the books I want to prior to the read-a-thon but if not I might edit this later and tell you on the daily updates post.

I'm ready to start already!

  2. That list of books are amazing! I am happy a Dessen book has creeped its way into your list, because, being a Dessen that I am, makes me so excited see what you think and hopefully enjoy it...maybe? I read Reaching for the Sun, it was touching and a pretty quick read, so one to check off your list, I recommend reading it first. It helps that it's in verse as well! :D I hope you enjoy them, because if you enjoy them, somehow you read them faster...sad that it goes by so fast. DX

    GOOD LUCK! <3

    1. It will be my first Dessen book so I'm crossing my fingers that I like it. If I do I have a whole lot more books to add to my tbr (:
      There are four books in verse up there. It's because I'm way behind on a challenge. Thanks for the advice!

  3. What an amazing list! I can't wait to see what you think of Graffiti Moon! :) It was an awesome read for me. Also The Host but the movie was good too. I have heard of the most of these but haven't read them. Can't wait to see your updates! Good luck :)
