Summer Wrap-Up Read-A-Thon Updates







I love read-a-thons because I get to read a lot of books that I've had on my TBR without feeling guilty that I'm not reading my review books. I participate in read-a-thons so I can read what I want and this time I have an awesome list of books that I will (hopefully) be reading. 


Books To Read:
1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
2. Losing Elizabeth by Tanya J. Peterson
3. Team Human by Justine Larbalestier & Sarah Rees Brennan
4. Jersey Angel by Beth Ann Bauman
5. Blood Debt by Nancy Straight
6. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
7. 52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody
8. Sovereign Hope by Frankie Rose

Thoughts: I'm really happy with the progress I made today considering everything I did. I stayed up super late last night to read most of Anna and the French Kiss because I couldn't put it down. When I woke up, I helped my mom can some green beans, finished Anna, started Losing Elizabeth then spent time with a friend I haven't seen in about 5 months. Overall, very successful day!

Thoughts: I did a lot today which didn't leave a lot of time for reading. I took my last test of the summer semester!! Then I went and spent the day with my mom. She needed me to put her new TV stand together while she watched. Two hours later, she took me to Target and bought me a new bookshelf! When I got home I put it together and rearranged my books. Once I was finished I finished Jersey Angel. Great day! :)
