Hi! Right. Ready to watch me fail miserably at a read-a-thon as I flop about in the murky waters of much faster readers than myself and leech onto the awesome community surrounding it BECAUSE I CAN DAMNIT? Great!

Goals

So let’s start with my goals.

I think that’s a valid goal, is it not?

Yes, they are double-stacked and overflowing.

Perhaps not..

Well okay. If it’s purple, it means I’ve finished the book. If it’s green, I’ve started reading it.

  • Cicada by Belle Whittington Only had a little left but: done!
  • VIII by Harriet Castor
  • Pretty When She Dies by Rhiannon Frater
  • An Autumn Crush by Milly Johnson
  • Flying Blind by Deborah Cooke
  • Working Stiff by Rachel Caine
  • Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
  • Pyxis: The Discovery by K.C. Neal
  • Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder
  • The Book of Lost Souls by Michelle Muto
  • Don’t Fear the Reaper by Michelle Muto

This is the list of books I’m allowed to read next. I can only wish I could get through even half of those titles in a week! No. I’m hoping to finish Cicada today as I’m currently about 76% through it. I’m planning to start on Pretty When She Dies for the readalong and then I shall get started on one of the others. Probably VIII, which I really need to read soon, but yep. They’re all received for review (apart from Glass Houses technically but I was sent later in the series books for review so should get started soon).  I doubt I will manage to finish a full book in the week , so I’m ‘borrowing’ an idea from Shirley who borrowed an idea from Amanda.. see where this is going? And I will update based on pages/percentage read as I’m a slow coach!

Progress

I’ll be keeping this updated in my own forgetful little way.
