Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon - aka Killing It In June

WW Read-a-Thon

May sucked, so for June I'm pumping up the motivation, and what better way to do it than with a read-a-thon!  Hosted by April @ My Shelf Confessions and an enormous amounts of fun, I'm ready to kill it.  If you want to participate, it's not too late - go sign up now!

I'm not making a goals list because, honestly, I SUCK at reading to a list, so instead this will be my updates post instead!

Now, time to get off the internet, grab a coffee and a cookie and READ!

Day One:
Books read: Undercurrent by Paul Blackwell, 182 pages.
Books read so far: 1
Pages read so far: 182

Day Two:
Books read: The View on the Way Down by Rebecca Wait (303 pages) & Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard (338 pages)
Books read so far: 3
Pages read so far: 823
Uh, yeah, I read TWO BOOKS IN ONE DAY.  I can't remember the last time this happened!  Oh and I got sunburned, but it was SO worth it!

Day Three:
Books Read: Yesterday by C.K. Kelly Martin (368 pages) & Exiled (The Protector #1) by M.R. Merrick (264 pages)
Books read so far: 5
Pages read so far: 1455
OK, something is very wrong (or right!) with me, another two book day.  Such a shame I'm not paid to read, I could get through my whole TBR in like, 5 years....

Day Four:
Books Read: Zoe Letting Go by Nora Price (272 pages)
Books in Progress: The Boat by Christine Dougherty (43 pages), Dust & Decay (Benny Imura #2) by Jonathan Maberry (88 pages)

All those times I used work as a reason not to read much?  Yeah, it was a crappy excuse!

Books in ProgressDust & Decay (Benny Imura #2) by Jonathan Maberry (143 pages)

I've picked up a little bit from yesterday, just hoping I can finish Dust & Decay and make it 7 books for the week!

Day Seven:
Books Read: Dust & Decay (Benny Imura #2) by Jonathan Maberry (305) pages
Books read in total: 7!

Phew, what a week!  I started off with a bang and got a bit slower as the week went on, but it was definitely fun!  And the Twitter chats and challenges were amazing - I can't wait for the next WWRAT!

  3. I love that button!

    I haven't read for almost TWO weeks now! I went to BEA & one other trip so I guess I have a good reason but it's making me fall so far behind :-(

    Even worse...I brought home moooore books lol

    Good luck!

  4. I always make lists, and I almost always stray from them :D Happy reading, Kat!

  5. Doing well :D Six books is definitely impressive :) Wait, is there a job that you can just read books? Sign me up! I don't know if I'm good enough to be an editor though LOL


  6. Oh, how'd you enjoy Undercurrent? I have that one coming up really soon! Like, next few books soon. Have heard positive-mixed things about it.
