Today is graduation day...a week of dedication to reading. It has been so much fun participating in the Summer Lovin' Read-a-Thon. I can't wait to do it again.
I met my goal of finishing three books and catching up on my Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge. Yay!!! I'm so glad. For a while there I wasn't sure I was going to make it. Life of Pi nearly sucked the life out of me. But in the end, I did it. I finished 3 books this week and I may finish a 4th before graduation day is out. As of right now, I've finished the following:
1. Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin : 4 out of 5 stars
2. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen : 4 out of 5 stars
3. Life of Pi by Yann Martel : 2 out of 5 stars
I also found a lot of great books this week thanks to the readings, reviews and suggestions of my fellow read-a-thoners. I found some great bloggers to follow and have now plumped up my Feedly list with book blogs. My "to read" list is swelling even larger...I still think that's a good thing. Variety is the spice of life, right?
As for Darian, he really tried to stick it out for the 24 hour read-a-thon marathon, but the poor guy just couldn't do it. He passed out a couple of hours ago, but not before he met his goal. He did finish his book, The Magician by Michael Scott and he is currently working on the next book in the series, The Sorceress. He's still a few books behind on his 2013 Goodreads Reading Challenge, but as he tells me..."I'll catch up shortly." The kid cracks me up.
We'll still be doing some reading over the next 24 hours (me more than him) and there may be one more post yet to come...we'll see. Either way, it's been a blast and I've very much enjoyed the challenge. I will most certainly be back for Read-a-Thon Central's Winter Wishes read-a-thon. In fact, I may find myself another read-a-thon before then. I think I might be a bit addicted...
