Wicked Valentine’s Read-a-Thon Vol. 2

I do so love readathons, and the WWReadathons are always amazing, but alas this one is over. The Twitter chats were a ton of fun, the books for me were mostly excellent despite not reading as much as I wanted, and overall it was a great time of bookish goodness. Over the course of the readathon I read 9 books and started a tenth, reading a total of 2,850 pages, not too shabby! Now, without further ado, here are the books I read! ^.^

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein – 2/5

Prep School Confidential by Kara Taylor – 3/5

Three by Kristen Simmons – 5/5 – reviewed it here!

Lady Thief by A.C. Gaughen – 5/5

Split Second by Kasie West – 5/5

Tommy Nightmare by JL Bryan – 2/5 – reviewed it here!

If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch – 5/5

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson – 4/5

The Future of Us by Jay Asher – 4/5

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge (started)

I can’t wait to participate in more readathons in the near future as well as the next WWReadathon! How did you do for this readathon? Did you meet your goals or even surpass them? What was your favorite read during it? Thanks as always for reading! ^.^

Wicked Valentine’s Read-a-Thon Vol. 2

The  Wicked Valentine’s Read-A-Thon is a time when we all get together to dedicate the days of February 7-17 to as much reading as possible. You read as much as you can in order to get yourself a little further through that huge to-read pile! We know real life gets in the way and even if you can’t participate more than one day, you’re welcome to join in on the fun!

In the meanwhile, we will be hosting book-related challenges where you can win some awesome prizes and have a Twitter party at the hashtag #WWReadathon! You can posts updates on your blog, Twitter, Goodreads or Facebook — as long as the profile is public and we all can enjoy your reading progress!

I’m a huge fan of the WWReadathons and even though I know this post is going up a day late I’m still excited to participate. Unfortunately this particular readathon is during a time I’m semi-busy (I’m working the day this is posted & Monday, plus college stuff is due this coming week), but I will try to read as much as possible (as always) all the same!

I don’t really have a set list of books for this readathon simply because I wasn’t aware it was happening until the day of! So I’ll just put ten books I’m considering reading during it and update as I read. Sound good? Off we go!
