Handing in My Readathon V-Card

13 Oct

It’s true. I’ve never done a readathon before, even though I can’t exactly imagine why because I LOVE reading and I LOVE being able to hunker down and plow through some books. But Dewey’s October Readathon sounds like just the thing right now. I have to admit that the 24 hours business is daunting, though, because I am basically tired all the time, but whatevs. I’m giving it a go. I’m only going to pick 5 books and see how far I get. Although I can tell you right now that MAYBE I’ll finish two. Also, it’s highly likely that I’ll stop for a nap sometime. But a girl can dream, right? So, here we go!

Just started this one actually, so I’m keeping it on my Readathon list because I want to finish it. Also, ghosts and cowboys and TEXAS FOREVER. I’m kind of loving it right now.

Book cover for The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle

Amish vamps? OF COURSE, I WILL! I have heard so many good things about this book. I’m looking forward to reading something perhaps a little creepyish in time for Halloween!

Book cover for The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa

The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #1) by Julie Kagawa

Because Julie Kagawa writing more fairy books? Definitely reading it. Also, little Ethan Chase is all shirtless on the cover. It’s hard not to be intrigued.

book cover for The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

The Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus #3) by Rick Riordan

Psh, I can almost guarantee that I am not going to finish this book. It’s like 600 pages long. But it’s the continuing saga of one PERCY JACKSON, and even if I don’t finish it today (or, you know, start it even), it’s going down soon.

book cover for It's In His Kiss by Julia Quinn

It’s In His Kiss (Bridgertons #7) by Julia Quinn

Guys, I LOVE the Bridgertons. I’m sad that I’m on book 7 of 8! But then I can jump into some other hot historical romances, too, and I’m always a fan of that. This 7th book is about Hyacinth, the youngest of the lot.

Let’s see how we do, friends!

    Yay! Glad you are readathoning! It’s pretty much my idea of a perfect day! Looking forward to what you think about Texas Gothic since it looks pretty good 🙂

    Julia Quinn is one of my favorite historical romance authors. Some of her books I was disappointed in, but for the most part I really like her books. They are automatic buys for me. I have read all the Bridgerton books, but 7 and 8 aren’t my favorite. I liked them, just not as much as Daphne’s, Anthony’s, and, (of course!), Colin’s stories.

    Have you read How to Mary a Marquis by Quinn? That is one of my favorites.

    I HAVE NOT YET READ MARK OF ATHENA. Obviously this NEEDS to be remedied.

    Also, Hyacinth’s story is one of my favorites!

Tell me what's up!
