Wrapping Up 2011 Readathon

Jessie from Remarkable Reads is hosting a readathon over the holidays! Which is PERFECT timing because I have this time off, and I can devote extra time to reading before the year ends!

Because of this I'm really setting the bar high for myself and hoping to get LOTS of reading done.

The readathon runs from December 22nd to January 1st. There will be giveaways and mini challenges, so I hope you participate as well! And the Twitter hashtag is #WU2011R

These are the books I'm hoping to read during the readathon:
  • Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer *started reading, barely into it. Readathon reading starts at page 64 FINISHED
  • The Beautiful Code (The Start Up #3) by Sadie Hayes *started reading, barely into it. Readathon reading starts at page 5 FINISHED
  • Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally FINISHED
  • Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes FINISHED
  • The Lady of the Rivers by Philippa Gregory
  • First Kill by Heather Brewer FINISHED
  • Heartless by Anne Elisabeth Steingl
  • Embrace by Cherie Colyer FINISHED
  • Titan Magic by Jodi Lamm FINISHED
  • The Predicteds by Christine Seifert
  • The Storyteller by Antonia Michaelis
  • Fever (The Chemical Gardens #2) by Lauren DeStefano
  • Veiled Rose by Anne Elisabeth Steingl
  • Hushed by Kelley York FINISHED
  • Tempest by Julie Cross FINISHED
ADDED:
  •  The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg FINISHED
  • Life is But a Dream by Brian James FINISHED
  • Living Violet (The Cambion Chronicles #1) by Jaime Reed FINISHED
  • Switched (Trylle Trilogy #1) by Amanda Hocking FINISHED

I would LOVE to get through all of these, and I think it's possible. So we'll see what happens if I work hard ;) Good luck!

I may get a chance to read a bit more before midnight, but I don't think it will be very much... so I'm expecting this to be my final update and count :) I didn't end up completing as much as I had hoped, but I had set the bar EXTREMELY high and I did accomplish lots. I'm pleased with that :) and hoping to continue this much reading into next week before I go back to school.

    I have the time off as well. I'm really looking forward to finally participating in a readathon. My goal is to read 7 books. I have a few short books that I think I may add in too though.

    Cinder and Catching Jordan are great so I hope you enjoy those. My e-galley of Tempest expired so I'm also curious to see what you think about that one.

    Catching Jordan also has a nice little twist. I loved the direction Kenneally took the story and all the true life moments that I felt helps us, as readers, relate to her characters. The romance in the story is just a plus. Jordan deals with a lot more than boy trouble.
