There’s still three more days of the read-a-thon, and I plan on continuing to read! I’m really happy about my day 4 reading. However, let me just say, my emotions were all over the place when I finished those two books. I have a road trip this weekend, so I might be able to get some reading done or some review writing done!

How are you all doing in your read-a-thons?

Challenge

Today’s challenge is hosted by the wonderful Lori @ Writing My Own Fairy Tale. 

Would you rather:
Lend books to someone who dog-ears pages or to someone who reads with cheesy Cheetos fingers?

A: Dog ears – that’s more fixable than orange cheeto dust!

Would you rather:
Be able to meet one character of your choice or meet one author of your choice?

A: Author of choice – I get to hear about all the characters she/he has created!

Would you rather:
Never be allowed in a book store again or never be allowed in a library again?

A: Book store – Library has an amazing selection, plus, I don’t have to pay!

Would you rather:
Have to choose one of your favorite characters to die in their book or have to pick one of your favorite couples to break up in their book?

A: Favorite couple to break up – at least they’re still alive

Would you rather:
Be required to read Twilight once a year for the rest of your life or The Scarlet Letter once a year for the rest of your life?

A: This one is hard… I’ve never read Twilight, so probably that! Maybe Scarlet Letter if I can just Sparknotes it, but that’s cheating.

I’m excited to be participating in my very first Bout of Books! I can’t wait to join all the twitter sprints and challenges, and hopefully, I’ll get some reading done for the new year.

My Tentative TBR:

Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson – I am currently reading this 1000+ paged book, but I probably won’t finish before 1/4/2016, so we’ll see how much of this I can read!

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater – this is for a buddy read I’m doing with Kate from Kate Reads Lit! You should go follow her, she’s awesome.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard – this is for a buddy read I’m doing on Goodreads!

Elementals: The Prophecy of Shadows by Michelle Madow – ARC from Netgalley, it’s published on Jan. 26th, so I need to read it soon!

That might be all I can get through in a week, especially if I read a lot of Way of Kings.


Are you participating in one of the many, many read-a-thons going on this week? Tell me your TBRs below!

Also, HAPPY NEW YEAR’S DAY EVERYONE! Here is to an amazing 2016!
