Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon: Start + Goals + Updates + Wrap Up!

So, it's time for the Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon Vol.2!
I participated last year, and I had a blast, as well the other 2 WWReadathon editions I participated in :) I guess this is my 4th WWReadathon.
The Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon is hosted by April & Pabkins @ My Shelf Confessions!
The read-a-thon started today @ 12:01 AM EST (06:01 AM for me) & will end on June 14 @ 11:59 PM EST (for me @ 05:59 AM on June 15).
For more info & to sign up, visit the post HERE!
The sign up will be open until midnight EST on June 11.
On Twitter as always we'll use #WWReadathon.

And of course there will be 2 Twitter Parties:
- Twitter Party 1: Saturday, June 8th: 5:00 – 6:00PM EST - 11-12PM for me (participated)
- Twitter Party 2: (participated)
And of course there will be a lot of mini challenges!

What I'll be reading?


To be honest, I probably won't have a lot of time for reading, but Outside In (this is the omnibus edition, and I already read Inside Out last week) & Hexbound are 2 of my possible reads, because the previous books in the series were really fast reads. I also have some already started books that I might continue reading, and those books are:

I'm pretty much almost done with Sparks, I have around 50 more pages, and although I planned to finish it before this read-a-thon, I got too busy to read yesterday, so I can't wait to return to it to see how it will end, so yeah, it will be my first read ;) I have also started Eleanor & Park for a read-along, so I might pick it up, too. So far it's been great. And the last, but not the least - The Storm. Now that's a book filled with supernatural terror ;)

I also might change my mind, and read some novellas instead, you know all of those novellas & short stories that are prequels or set in between the books of our fav series ;)

My Goals:

- to read;
- to participate in a Twitter Party;
- to participate in lots of challenges;
- to have lots of fun.

So, yeah, I will be more mini challenges oriented this time ;) 
I'll update this post with my progress.

The Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon starting post is HERE.

Mini Challenges I've participated in:

1. Jigsaw Puzzle
2. Title Scramble
3. Songs for the Summer x 3
4. Crossword
5. Cover Lover

Books finished/read:

1. Sparks by Laura Bickle - previously started, finished on Friday, June 7;

3. The Storm by Alexander Gordon Smith - previously started, finished on Wednesday, June 12;
4. Hexbound by Chloe Neill - started on June 9, finished on June 15.

Wrap up:

I did better then I expected, although not as great as I usually do on a read-a-thon. I finished the 3 previously started books (listed above) & I read one more book - Hexbound! I also started & read around 50 pages from Outside In. I also read quite the number of novellas, but I'm too sleepy to list them all now. I also participated in the 2 Twitter Parties & in all the 5 mini challenges!

It was another great read-a-thon, so I'd like to thank April & Pabkins for hosting this read-a-thon, as well as all the challenge hosts, and all read-a-thon-ers, for making this another fun read-a-thon!
