Crazy for Summer Readathon // Are There Even Words to Describe You?

Source
Okay, so I'm almost halfway through my list of goals and I'm pretty proud of myself. I also realize that I need to post my achievements in order to get cool little pics from the Crazy For Summer Readathon Hosts Tessa and Max. My goal is to try to read three books tomorrow. If only I would wake up early. I might be able to do it since I finished off I Was Here after midnight.

I hope everyone is having fun reading up a storm!

Books Started: Huntress by Malinda Lo
I Was Here by Gayle Forman


Nature is out of balance in the human world. The sun hasn't shone in years, and crops are failing. Worse yet, strange and hostile creatures have begun to appear. The people's survival hangs in the balance.

To solve the crisis, the oracle stones are cast, and Kaede and Taisin, two seventeen-year-old girls, are picked to go on a dangerous and unheard-of journey to Tanlili, the city of the Fairy Queen. Taisin is a sage, thrumming with magic, and Kaede is of the earth, without a speck of the otherworldly. And yet the two girls' destinies are drawn together during the mission. As members of their party succumb to unearthly attacks and fairy tricks, the two come to rely on each other and even begin to fall in love. But the Kingdom needs only one huntress to save it, and what it takes could tear Kaede and Taisin apart forever.

Cody and Meg were inseparable. Two peas in a pod. Until . . . they weren’t anymore.

When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.

    1. Most of them really. It's kind of what keeps me loving them because I know they'll learn from their mistakes.

    1. It was really good and tragic really. The only downside to me was the romance.
