Last Minute Read-A-Thon





Because it is the end of the year and I haven't read a lot of debuts, I'm only reading books by 2012 debut authors. Also, I will be starting this read-a-thon today because I will be busy with my mom all day tomorrow. So the books I've decided to read are....
Personal Effects by E.M. Kokie
Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill
What Happens Next by Colleen Clayton
The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long
I Swear by Lane Davis

I will be updating this post throughout the week with my reading progress!

Just some thoughts:  This break has been hectic! I'm so upset that I haven't been able to read like I normally do for a read-a-thon. I'm not necessarily upset that I'm not meeting my goal like I normally do, but I think I could do better. Maybe over the next two days I'll be able to finish another book or two. We'll see. :)

Overall, I didn't do too bad. I wish I would have been able to get more reading done, but I kept getting distracted by friends. When I'd go to bed I would have my kindle app out and I'd read other books I've been dying to start. So all in all, not too bad.

Kick-off

Can't wait to hear what you think of The Treachery of Beautiful Things! I've read mixed reviews about this and is a little hesitant to pick up the books. :/

Anyway, good luck with the read-a-thon! :)

Gosh, I know how you feel. That's what made this read-a-thon challenging because there's so much going on the last few days of the year. You still did great! You read so much more than I did. I think I read about 800 pages.

Thanks for participating in the read-a-thon!
