This here's my reading list for the Bout of Books Read-a-thon that STARTS TOMORROW GAH! I'm ready! I've been preparing with brain exercises and finger crunches and nap marathons. I figure if I get all my sleep in BEFORE the a-thon starts I can go without as much for the week. That's how it works. Right? Right. ON TO THE BOOKS!
I picked 5 books that I want to read this week.
The best books to read for any a-thon, in my opinion, are easy to read, relatively short and will keep your attention. So I picked a graphic novel, 3 not so long contemps and one slightly massive dystopian. To finish all these books will mean I will have to read a minimum of 213 pages PER DAY. Challenging? Yes. Do-able? I think so.
1. Vampire Academy Graphic Novel (Richelle Mead) 144 pages
2. The Disenchantments (Nina LaCour) 307 pages
3. A Really Awesome Mess (Trish Cook & Brendan Halpin) 275 pages
4. The Darkest Minds (Alexandra Bracken) 488 pages
5. Sloppy Firsts (Megan McCafferty) 280 pages
Total Pages to Read: 1494
Participate in 2 challenges
Write a review for every book read (This will be the most challenging for me!)
This is my first week-long read-a-thon but I'm excited to not only read a crapton but also participate in some chats and challenges! I am BRAND new to Twitter. Like I just created a twitter account a couple weeks ago. Still getting the hang of it, haven't posted all that much. But I'm officially part of the Twitterverse. Now I just need an iphone and I'll feel caught up with the technology.
Anyhoo, if anybody out there is interested, my Twitter name is @ElizzabethK
If you're participating in the read-a-thon, I'd love to know what you're planning on reading! Leave a comment or hit me up on Twitter!
