Summer Lovin’ Read-a-Thon: Day 5

Format: select

SummerLovinBadge2Summer Lovin’ runs from July 1-7. This is a no-pressure Read-a-Thon – the point is to have fun and to tackle your summer TBR list. Set your own goals and enjoy participating in posts, challenges, and giveaways! It will all culminate in a 24-hr marathon read-a-thon, from Saturday July 6th at 10am EST, to Sunday July 7th at 10am EST. Sign ups are open through July 6th!

Today is Day Five of the Read-a-Thon, and today’s discussion topic is…

Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin On

Let’s do book shimmies! We made it through the week-long part of the read-a-thon!!! Congratulate yourself and your new bookish friends on their progress so far. Did you get as much read as you wanted to so far? Have you changed your goals for the 24-hr marathon read?

Really, since this post is going up on Thursday night, there’s still a full day ahead of us. *phew!* So even though I feel like I’m a little behind, it’s totally okay, because Friday hasn’t even begun (or is just beginning) for most of us. I’m totally doing okay. Really! …She says, as she frantically types this post so she can get back to reading as fast as her eyes will let her. ;)

Completed & In Progress…

I started the read-a-thon when I was about halfway through In Your Dreams; I finished that late Monday night, and then read Meant to Be over Tuesday-Wednesday. I started Amy & Roger Wednesday, and have almost finished it now. (BTW, would totally recommend all of the above books – I really enjoyed them!!)

I’m planning to read My Life Next Door next – and I’m hoping to finish it before Saturday, because I want The Truth About Forever to be my Saturday 24-hr marathon read (my first Sarah Dessen!). If I can do this, I will be TOTALLY on track for my goal of finishing 4 full books, which would be awesome. Fingers crossed!!

  1. You are doing great! More than I can say, sigh. Life just got too busy but now its the weekend I can fully join in! I loved Amy & Roger, it’s just so cute with all the drawings and extra bits and pieces.

  2. Ahhh, The Truth About Forever is an amazing novel! So beautiful! I don’t think you’ll have any difficulties finishing it :) And I’ve always wanted to read My LIfe Next Door – sounds so cute, too! And good luck with your reading goals!

  3. I added In Your Dreams to my to-read list. It sounds so interesting. I’ve had Meant to Be on my list forever and I need to get on that. I love the other three books immensely. They are some of the best contemporary YA out there. You’ve made much better progress than I have lol.

  4. I just finished a Sarah Dessen! Enjoy The Truth About Forever. I read that one last year. Should be a nice relaxing read for you. I really enjoyed it.

  5. Yay, In Your Dreams! I really enjoyed that book. :D I’m so happy to hear you’re going to read The Truth About Forever. One of my favourites from Dessen. :)

    Congrats on your progress! :D
