ALA Summer Read-A-Thon Update

ALA Summer Read-A-Thon Update

OK so I am not doing so well at the Read-A-Thon right now. My parents just left and I seriously have not had much time to read since they got here. I am on page 130 of Dark Companion right now. It’s interesting but the pacing is a little slow. There are hints of darker things to come, but I want those dark things to happen NOW. Or soon, at least. My goal is to at least finish one book during the challenge. If I can do that, I will still consider it a success. I’ll check back in at… Read more »

ALA Summer Read-A-Thon Commences!

ALA Summer Read-A-Thon Commences!

Today we are kicking off the ALA Summer Read-A-Thon hosted by Nite Lite, Crystal at Elegantly Bound Books, and Nicole at The Reader’s Antidote.  If you missed my original post on it and would like to know more or sign up, check it out here. So far, I haven’t made a huge dent in my ALA pile yet. July was an insane month and August is looking pretty busy, too. My parents are also coming in for a last minute visit this weekend and I am not sure how much reading time I’ll actually have. Therefore, my  read-a-thon list is going to… Read more »

NetGalley Knockdown Round-up

NetGalley Knockdown Round-up

Hello, friends! August marks the end of my NetGalley Knockdown challenge hosted by Pretty Deadly Reviews.  I met my goal for this challenge, though I ended up reading different books than the ones I originally intended.  But that’s OK. I read 4 NG books last month, which I am very happy about. I finished the following: About Last Night by Ruthie Knox – review here Thief of Shadows by Elizabeth Hoyt Bared To You by Sylvia Day – review here Hidden Paradise by Janet Mullany I still need to review a couple of them. It’s only a tiny dent in… Read more »

ALA Summer Read-A-Thon: Aug 8 – 13

ALA Summer Read-A-Thon: Aug 8 – 13

Hi, everyone! I just got back home from Comic Con as I am writing this. I had a great time but, needless to say, I am super exhausted. I hope to have a recap up soon but, in the meantime, look what I have planned for the blog! After my trips to ALA and Comic Con, my review pile is a little out of control. My friends Nicole from The Reader’s Antidote and Crystal from Elegantly Bound Books have decided to team up to tackle those ALA books so we don’t get too far behind. The ALA Summer Read-A-Thon will run from… Read more »

The Knockdown Begins

The Knockdown Begins

The NetGalley Knockdown has officially begun! I am off to a really good start already since I just finished (and wrote a review!) for About Last Night today. I don’t know how long this streak is going to last but I am just going to go with it for now. I am keeping my goals pretty modest so that I actually might meet them. Below are the NG books I am hoping to read this month. Dark Kiss by Michelle Rowen About Last Night by Ruthie Knox (read!) Velveteen by Daniel Marks This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers That’s my… Read more »

NetGalley Knockdown

Even though I have a great fear of commitment, I have decided to join the NetGalley Knockdown hosted by Bekka at Pretty Deadly Reviews. I need to read some of my NetGalley books and assuage the NetGalley Guilt (as my friends and I call it). I have so many awesome books from NG on my reader right now and I think this will help me prioritize them. I am not sure which books I am going to read just yet but I think I will aim for reading 4 NG books in July, which is a very modest and achievable… Read more »

Krazy Kleypas Reading Challenge 2012 –  Update

Krazy Kleypas Reading Challenge 2012 – Update

Thought I’d give a little update post on how my Krazy Kleypas Reading Challenge 2012 is going. Earlier in the year I signed up with a goal of 4-8 books.  But Lisa Kleypas is hard to resist and I’ve just recently met that goal. (Of course I’ve only reviewed a couple of these books but that’s another story.) So I am going to amend my to 8-12 books.

January NetGalley Month Recap

January NetGalley Month Recap

NetGalley January Month hosted by Red House Books ended last week and I think I did OK. I still have a large queue of NG books but I did manage to read some that I’ve been wanting to get to and have whittled the list down a little. A lot of the reviews are not up yet (still working on my resolution to write reviews in a more timely manner). Below is my list of NG books read last month. If you’re interested, Red House is hosting a year long NetGalley Reading Challenge. I am not going to sign up… Read more »

NetGalley January

NetGalley January

Yes, I’ve signed up for another challenge. Netgalley is a wonderful resource for bloggers and I take advantage of it often. Unfortunately I’ve gotten way behind in my Netgalley book reading. They offer to many great titles and I am constantly trying to balance my NG books with books I buy and the library. So motivate myself to read some of the awesome titles I’ve received from NG, I am declaring myself and am joining Netgalley January. Red House Books is hosting and if you’d like more info, check our her post here.  I am not going to list all… Read more »

Hi, everyone! I am signing up for my first official reading challenge (here on the blog at least). I am joining Under The Covers’ fantastic Krazy Kleypas Reading Challenge 2012.
