So far I read:
... I also participated in 3 of the mini challenges, and I'm finished with my shorter reads, so now it's time to read some novels.
I read 2 novels since my last update:
...I first read First Drop of Crimson, and even though I didn't put it on my read-a-thon list, I couldn't stop myself from picking up Eternal Kiss of Darkness asap. I also started Stone Guardian, but I soon gave up, it wasn't a book for me, and I won't be returning to it soon. Next I'm planning to start The Creeps.
Since my last update I read 2 more books:
...and I loved both The Creeps & Midnight Blue-Light Special. I also participated in the Twitter Party, so I'm almost done reaching all of my goals, the last one being to finish Insurgent, and I have 309 pages to go, so it's definitely doable.
So, although I have still time (5h) for reading for this read-a-thon, I decided to wrap it up earlier, since I completed all of my goals.I read 4 novels: First Drop of Crimson & Eternal Kiss of Darkness by Jeaniene Frost, The Creeps by John Connolly & Midnight Blue-Light Special by Seanan McGuire, and I absolutely loved all of them (I rated them all with 5 of 5).I also read 2 novellas: Claudette in the Shadows by M.J. Hearle & Entwined by Kristen Callihan; 2 graphic novels: Plants vs. Zombies: Lawnmageddon (as awesome & funny as the game) & Grimm Volume 1 (as awesome as the tv series); I finished the previously started Insurgent by Veronica Roth (which wasn't an easy goal to achieve, since I really didn't like the book, and I had to make myself finish it); I read the children's book Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman, which was really cute & fun; & I also read one of the InCryptid prequel short stories by Seanan McGuire - Loch & Key.I also participated in the Twitter Party on Friday (although technically for me it was on Saturday, since it started at 2 am), and I participated in 3 of the mini challenges: Superstitions; Wicked Title Trouble Challenge & Jigsaw Cover Love.I'd like to say thanks to April & Tabitha for hosting another amazing read-a-thon, as well as all the challenge hosts for hosting these fun challenges, as well as everyone that stopped by or I chatted with on Twitter for making this read-a-thon even more fun, so THANK YOU!!!
