Readathon Update

The readathon is winding down. I'm on vacation -- probably in the car right now. For the readathon I was able to exceed my goal and read four books. I read:

Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke
The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle
Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott

Maybe more -- I'll update this post when I can use my laptop again!

Coming next week!

What's new with you? Let me know in comments and I will visit you back. I'm a little behind in returning comments due to the trip, but I should be caught up soon!


  1. I hope you enjoyed your trip, and congratz for completing the readathon! I loved your review of "Starglass" and your interview with Phoebe North. And yay, "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea"!

    1. Thanks :)
      BtDaTDBS was really creepy and different -- I need to ponder a bit before I review.

  2. Can't wait to hear what you think of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue sea. That one is on my ist.

  3. I'm working on my fifth right now and hoping to get through a sixth by the end of the day. I also want to comment on a ton of posts and hopefully participate in a few challenges too. Enjoy your car ride :)

  4. Starglass was really good. I really enjoyed that book. You got some nice books. Come visit me here:

  5. Awesome! You got four books read! I have two book tours next week that I'm excited about (Prep School Confidential and The Hero's Lot). I'm hoping to get at least the two books I have partly read finished and maybe one or two more read. I've got two days to do it, so I'll be pushing it. That would get me to eight books read and nine was my goal. We have company for dinner tomorrow and if we didn't have that then I definitely would be able to read more, so we'll see. :) Have a fabulous trip!

  6. Man, all the bloggers like you who keep exceeding your goals for read-a-thons. You put me to shame :P. I hope you're having a fun vacation and can't wait to read your thoughts on Between the Devil!

    1. LOL -- four books in a week was not exactly amazing, but it's more than I usually read :)

  7. Yay for roadtrips! And you did really awesome for the read-a-thon -- I'm happy you exceeded your expectations!

    1. Yes, I am lucky that I can read in the car without getting motion sickness!

  8. I'm really looking forward to reading Heartbeat! I'm glad you got to it (and so many other books!) :)

  9. I look forward to reading your review of Earthbound, I have that coming up for me.

    Have an awesome week, hon! <33

  10. I hope you are having a great vacation! I've read Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and Heartbeat too so I can't wait to hear what you thought too!

  11. I'm just starting BtDatDBS. I cannot wait for the creepy!!!! :)

  12. I read three books then I had a weekend away but I read a 4th book right after the readathon ended. I read Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac, The Queen of Kentucky and Winter Town. I'm proud because I just bought those three books and read them right away! Where a lot of times I buy books and I read them years later LOL Then I read Frigid by J. Lynn and I loved all the books.

  13. Awesome readathon! I can't wait to hear what you think of Heartbeat, I'm really looking forward to that one! :-)
