Wicked Wildfire Readathon – End Post
I didn’t get much reading done. I wanted to at least finish The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern but for some darn reason I just can’t get into it. Everybody says this book is great but I’m just not feeling it. Celia and Marco had just met when I last stopped reading, close to the 200 page mark, so I’m hoping that thinks will pick up. I promised myself I would finish that book for the readathon and just wasn’t able to deliver. Nuts.
I started The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen and by the end of Sunday night I was on page 78. Tisk tisk. I didn’t get much reading done for this readathon. I think I read about 150 pages altogether. (In my defense, I read several things online, wrote, edited one of my own stories, and then acted as beta reader for one of my friends. I read tons the past 5 days. Just not published books.)
I missed two of the challenges, mostly because I wasn’t paying enough attention. Bummer. But I did manage to join the Saturday night Twitter Party and had a blast. It went by so fast! Luck was with me and I was one of the winners for the evening. A $5 gift card for Barnes & Noble. I know just want to spend it on too. I’m going to pick up my own copy of Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendera Blake. It’s still my favorite book this year.
(I need caffeine. I’m so tired, I can’t see straight.)
