Guys! It’s my third Read-a-thon! Yay! And I’ve made myself a blanket nest and I’m currently snuggled into it with Princess Snapples. All is well. Find me on Twitter when I’m distracting myself from reading! And go here to find out more about the Read-a-thon and it’s long history. Now if only I could decide what book I want to read first?
5:00am – 0 pages read. 0 cups of tea.
Well, I’m awake. And ready to read except I’m putting it off by doing all the fun online readathon things. Because thats what readathon is all about. Distracting oneself from actually reading. Also, still haven’t made up my mind about what to read.
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? 2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? 3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? 4) Tell us a little something about yourself! 5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
2) All of them?
3) I completely forgot to plan snacks!! So, I guess my tea? Also there’s randomly raspberry coffee cake in the house. I might eat that.
4) uh….I like to read? And I’m currently sitting in a blanket nest.
5) Unfortunately unlike last readathon I have to go to work later today. Which completely blows.
6:44am – 70 pages read. 1 cup of tea.
Decided to go with The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. Having previously read the Monstromologist, I was expecting creepy and unsettling. But let me tell you, I did not expect this level of creepy and unsettling. I’m never going to be able to look at an alien book the same way again. I really hope we get some answers about these aliens because otherwise I don’t know if I’m going to be able to leave my house ever again. Or my blanket nest.
And now I need another cup of tea. And maybe some eggs.
EDIT: went with the coffee cake instead of the eggs. Eggs are now for later.
9:06am – 151 pages read. 3 cups of tea.
I’m pretty sure the 5th Wave might be one of the best books I’ve ever read. I mean I’ll have to see how it ends, obviously, but I am loving it so much.
Also, I have now gotten my eggs. Time to do some commenting and twittering and then back to reading!
Also, it’s kind of dark and gloomy in here. I have a feeling one of my light bulbs is out.
10:39am – 251 pages read. 4 cups of tea.
I want to participate in the Re-Title Your Current Read mini-challenge. Go HERE to check out all the other awesome entries
I’m reading The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey and I’m going to re-title it to:
Because seriously. I cannot tell you how disturbing (in a good way) this book is and how much it makes me just want to kick all the alien ass and…ugh. They’re just so manipulative and horrible andand WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS MY ANGER! This book better end…well, I can’t imagine happy? but…end…with some aliens dying? Hopeful. It better end hopeful.
11:45pm – 550 pages read? ish? 5 cups of tea. 1 cup of coffee.
So, I missed a couple hours. But in my defense, The 5th Wave got really intense, then I had a nap then I went to work.
But I managed to sneakily read on my phone a bit at work and listen to an audiobook so I still moved ahead a bit. After The 5th Wave I decided I needed something light and fluffy and am about 20 pages from finishing Until I Die by Amy Plum. I have a cup of tea, two cookies and am back in my blanket nest. Going to finish Until I Die, then start on the last book in it’s series, If I Should Die, until I need to pass out.
Also, this blanket nest is the coziest thing ever. It just makes me happy. It’s going to be terribly sad to clean it up tomorrow.
12:39am I don’t know. Lots of page read. Everything else is the same.
