It’s that time of the year again: time for the Wicked Wildfire Readathon! Hosted by the lovely April and Kat from My Shelf Confessions, the WW Readathon is a week and a half long event dedicated to reading. My first WW Readathon was years ago, and I met so many lovely people through the chats. I’m looking forward to participating again, since for the first time in forever I’m actually free to do so. If you want to participate too – the readathon started today, so hurry! There are also two Twitter chats, and you can keep track of the other participants on their posts or the #WWreadathon hashtag.
- Finish at least two books. I’ve been in a bit of a slump so I don’t want to overextend myself
- Visit at least 10 blogs of other participants
- Try to participate in one of the Twitter chats
Summary: The boyfriend was here today, and I spent a lot of time reading while he played Fallout. Made great headway in the book I’m reading
Progress: 100 pages read in Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward
Summary: Busy day! Visited my grandmother in the hospital (she’s doing okay) and had a board game night. All in all it was a pretty nice day, and still got some reading done between happenings
Progress: 50 pages read in Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward
Summary: Time for some blog upkeep and relaxation. Already got a nice hour of reading time in the hour long train ride home from my boyfriend’s. After dinner I managed to finish my first book for the readathon. In the evening I picked up Choker and managed to read 75% of it before bed.
Progress: 150 pages read in Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward, finished the book! And some 180-ish pages in Choker by Elizabeth Woods
Summary: Finished up Choker in the morning. Good but slightly disturbing book! Since I missed the train on my way to our Dungeons & Dragons night I had the time to read quite a bit in Our Broken Sky.
Progress: Two books finished (Choker & Lover Awakened). Reached my two-book goal. Also read 40% of Our Broken Sky.
Summary: Since Our Broken Sky is a novella, I easily fit it in between other pursuits.
Progress: Finished Our Broken Sky novella. Finished three “books” in total
Summary: Eep! What to read next? The Cure for Dreaming just arrived, and I just couldn’t resist! Read the entire book. Usually I feel kind of burnt out after reading so much, but I blew through this one. Cat Winters’ second book didn’t disappoint.
Progress: Finished The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters, making a total of four books
Summary: A very hot and relaxed day. Since I don’t like reading physical books when it’s so hot (sweaty hands + paper isn’t a good combination) I picked up my Kindle again. Started Golden.
Progress: Read 75% of Golden by Jessi Kirby, closing in on five books
Summary: A nice rainy day. Temperatures are a lot more bearable today. Finished Golden
Progress: Finished five books in total
Summary: Again very warm. Put a blanket on the grass outside and started Anna Karenina
Progress: Read 100 pages in Anna Karenina (on top of my five finished books)
Summary: Some more reading on my blanket! Making pretty good progress
Progress: At page 150 in Anna Karenina (on top of five finished books)
