Once Upon a Read-a-Thon - The Starting Line & Updates

Despite my spectacular failure in the last read-a-thon I participated in, I'm participating in Once Upon a Read-a-Thon, hosted by Pure Imagination, Reading Angel and Candace's Book Blog, despite the 73 bajillion other things I have going on at the moment.

Here are the books I'm hoping to read over the next three days:
Big Frog by Rob Badcock
New World: Chaos by John O'Brien
Timepiece by Myra McEntire
The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian

I'm probably being completely unrealistic, but if I can at least make a dent in this list, I'll be a happy bunny. Let's see if I can remember to post my updates this time ;-)

And if you're participating - let me know!  Good luck!

Day One: Ummmm.....
Pages read
Big Frog (4 pages)
New World: Chaos (13 pages)
Timepiece: (13 pages)
Total: 30 pages
Mood: I've got book-jump-itis!

Day Two: Better than yesterday - just!
Pages Read:
Big Frog (40 pages)
New World: Chaos (15 pages)
Total: 55 pages
Mood: Must focus!

Day Three: Just when I pick up the pace, it's over :(
Pages Read:
New World: Chaos (30 pages)
Timepiece (70 pages)
Total: 100 pages
Grand Total: 185 pages

Well it wasn't the greatest of read-a-thon achievements but I tried my best!


  1. Yeah, Kat, let's rock this read-a-thon :) I am participating too after my exam in about two hours :) Have fun reading and don't let yourself get distracted by life :D

  2. Oooh, I want to read The Sandcastle Girls too!

  3. I just finished reading and posting about Timepiece. It was much better than Hourglass in my opinion. Check out my review of it if you have time.

    Good luck with your read-a-thon.
