We meet again lovelies!
Welcome to my wrap up post for the Wonderfully Wicked Read A Thon! Hosted by My Shelf Confessions!
I’m sad to say that I didn’t have quite as much time to read this read a thon. You see, I was in PARIS!! More on that later.
And while I did read a little bit on the flight over, and a little bit around town, I was mostly exploring the beautiful city of lights. Continue Reading →

I’m super excited about this Read A Thon. I haven’t participated in one for a while, but I fully intend to read as much as I can! It’s going to be challenging because I work full time, but I think I’ll be clearing my lunch schedule for some much needed reading time!
Here are the books I’m looking to read:
The Turning by Francine Prose Through to You by Emily HainsworthProject Paper Dolls by Stacey Kade Fathomless by Jackson Pearce Finish: Jane Eyre audiobook (in progress)Finish: The Replacement (which has been half read since beginning of year)
Wish me luck!
Mini Challenge 1– Cover to Cover Blog
1. Which book am I most excited to read in the coming year?I am super excited to read Champion by Marie Lu when it comes out later this year. I read Prodigy and Legend so fast!
2. Which book would you re-read if you had the time?I love reading Jurassic Park. I try to make time for the Harry Potter series as well. But if I had some extra time, I would like to read The Historian again.
3. If you could meet any fictional character, who would it be and why?That’s a really hard question.I think I’d like to meet the Weasley brothers from Harry Potter. I think they would be fun to hang out with and get to know.
Mini Challenge 2 – Better Read Than Dead
You’re in a bookstore and you’ve just purchased 5 books you’ve been dying to read, when the apocalypse hits. (Zombie, Demons, Vampires, Dean Winchester vs. Sam Winchester (yes, I’m watching Supernatural reruns) I don’t care what apocalypse). You’ve got one chance at survival, what 2 books do you take and what 3 other items do you take?
This is very tough. Do I grab something for survival? Or entertainment?
Depending on the type of apocalypse, do I go for sunscreen or water or garlic?
These are all serious questions.
I think I would grab- Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell and The Historian. I love those books and they are massive, so while I’m waiting for the end of the world, I might as well read some of my favorites. (If I can make my husband carry another two books with him, I might make him take Pride & Prejudice and The Siren by Tiffany Reisz (erotica). I mean, we are going to have some free time on our hands….)
I would also pick up a crow bar (because I fear zombies and according to the Zombie Survival Guide, a crow bar is your best friend), bunny food (for my two bunnies) because I am a practical bunny mama, and probably chocolate. Because my husband is grouchy without it.
Great mini challenge!!
Mini Challenge 3 – IB Book Blogging
Make your dream guy using characteristics, personalities, looks, and anything else you can think of from your favorite book boyfriends.
Hmm, tough one. Tough because I am already married.
How about the best characteristics I find in books that apply to my hubby?
Mr. Darcy – accent and strong character.
Sam from Wolves of Mercy Falls series – songwriting, guitar playing, sensitivity
Dimitri from Vampire Academy – strength, speed, stealth, and fierceness
Matthew from A Discovery of Witches – knowledge, protectiveness
July 9th- update:Finished Through to You and The TurningGoing to start reading FathomlessHoping to finish Jane Eyre tomorrow evening
Note to self: Reading during lunch is the way to go!!
Mini Challenge 4 – Dizneee’s World of Books
1. Favorite Genre: Young Adult Paranormal2. Favorite Book within that genre: The Vampire Academy series, the Drake Chronicles… the list goes on! 3. Favorite Character in that genre: So hard to choose. I do love Lucius from Jessica’s Guide.
This was actually a very hard one for me to answer. Because all of these guys are so hard to choose from! :)
Wrap up! July 11th-
Well, I did pretty well! I read three YA books and finished my audio book of Jane Eyre, which is what I was really hoping for with the full time gig going.
I’m pretty happy with my progress!
Most of all, I think I’ll try to take a couple of days every week to read at lunch. It was relaxing and I made some serious reading progress too!
Great Read a thon!

And that concludes the High Summer Read A Thon!
Thanks to everyone for following me in my crazy reading journey. And thanks to The True Book Addict for hosting.
I had a great time reading but most of all, reading others’ posts on how they were doing!
I can’t wait to do another one!
In total, I read
Girl of Nightmares 332 pgs
The Summer I Turned Pretty 10 pgs
Read pages- 945 total!
Not too shabby considering I got really busy a few of those days.
While I didn’t reach my goal of 5 books, it was still fun to try.
