Once Upon a Read-A-Thon: Goals and First Mini-Challenge!

Once Upon a Read-a-ThonSince the read-a-thon is only 3 days, and I beat myself up with too many books on the last one I did, I have decided that I will read two books this time. Though I have a couple author requested reviews due next week, I am going to stick to ones I chose to read. Sooooo, I am going to read:

Insurgent by Veronica Roth


Paranormalcy by Kiersten White.

My other goals are to find many more awesome blogs to subscribe to and tweeps to follow!

Today’s mini-challenge is courtesy of Bailey at IB Book Blogging:

Question 1:

What is your favorite cover that has been revealed this summer and why? Post a link or picture of the cover if you want.

The book cover for Timepiece by Myra McEntire is really cool. The second book of the Hourglass series, the covers are well-thought out in that they have the same elements in both, but they are configured differently. I also loved the picture and the coloring on Meg Cabot’s Underworld which is the second in her Abandon series.

Timepiece (Hourglass, #2)   Hourglass (Hourglass, #1)   Underworld (Abandon Trilogy #2)

Question 2:

Do you rely on the cover to help you choose whether you want to read a book or not?

I never judge a book by its cover, but a compelling, different or interesting cover will definitely make the book mysteriously move up to the top of my TBR pile!

  1. LOVE the covers you posted! I am dying to read Timepiece…hoping it will happen in the very near future! =) Good luck with your goals!! Read-a-Thons are so exciting and exhausting! LOL! By the end of the tree days my eyeballs will be falling out of the sockets, HA!

    1. Thanks, Jen! I actually liked Timepiece better than Hourglass. I have a draft of my review but haven’t posted yet. This time I made easy goals…yes, my eyes will be begging me for mercy as well…have fun!

    1. Debz – I am enjoying Paranormalcy. My daughter read it and loved it. Oh and I don’t own either book – we have a great library! Thanks for the comment! Hope you are enjoying the RAT!

  2. I hadn’t made it a goal officially when I started the read-a-thon but discovering new blogs and commenting away has become a goal of mine. I’m finding all kinds of great blogs! But I haven’t read too much yet.

    Good luck meeting all of your goals and happy reading! :]
