Goals for Ready, Set, Readathon! #RSReadathon


The read-a-thon is over, and I did pretty well! I finished all of the books listed below with the exception of Finding Summerland and Crushed. I will be reading those this week. So, five books! AND I wrote all reviews! AND I attended the Dallas Anime Festival with the family as well. Not bad, I say.  Not bad.


My fellow blogger, Kimba at Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, told me about this read-a-thon when she read a previous post of mine pertaining to how many books I am trying to shove into my eyeholes over the next month. I am going to the Austin Teen Book Festival at the end of September, and I have checked out many, many books from the library in preparation. I think I will literally have to complete one book per day. So, hey, I should get some credit or perhaps a prize whilst doing all this consumption, right?

So, goals. I have an overdue book at the library, but it is not by an author who will be at ATBF12. I have been waiting for this book FOREVER, so I am trying to ska-weeeeze it in. Then, I have three Author Requested Reviews due, and then about 22 more books from the lie-berry. Totally doable. So here’s hoping that I complete 4 books from this list:

  • The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (OVERDUE!)
  • Leandra’s Enchanted Flute by Katy Huth Jones (ARR)
  • Finding Summerland by Paige Bleu (ARR)
  • Dark Eyes by William Richter (#ATBF12)
  • Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo (#ATBF12)
  • Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn’t Have) by Sarah Mlynowski (My Choice!)
  • Crushed by K.C. Blake (ARR)

Weird that the first two are cancer-related books. I don’t really like illness books, at least where that’s the main focus. I think it’s a combination of my religious upbringing and seeing this Made-for-TV movie about a young wife/mother dying of cancer, when I was in middle school and home alone one evening. I couldn’t stop crying and making those horrible wet and snorty noises when my parents got home.

And on that happy note, enjoy your books and let me know what you all are reading. I will only be reading books by authors who are coming to the ATBF for the next month, but I will be ready for ideas in October!

    1. Yay! I had heard I needed to have a box of tissues at the ready. As soon as my coffee’s brewed, I will continue! Good luck to you, too! Tweet me at @InkandPage if you come across anything you really like!
