"Once Upon a Read-a-Thon" is hosted by Angela at Reading Angel, Lori at Pure Imagination, Candace at Candace's Book Blog. It runs from 12:01 AM on July 11 to 11:59 PM on July 13th.

Books I Plan To Read:

  • Iron House by John Hart (432 pg.)

  • The Human Race by O.C. Heaton (448 pg.)
  • The Mistress's Revenge by Tamar Cohen (224 pg.)

Also, on audiobook, I'm reading:
  • Call Me Irresistible by Susan Elizabeth Phillips (eq. of 385 pg.) - click on the picture below for the link to the audiobook on Audible.

# of Pages I Plan To Read: 2719 pages. I know that's a very high number, and I can't promise that I'll actually finish reading all those pages, but I sure am gonna try! =)

Book I'm Starting With: "The Human Race" by O.C. Heaton.

Book I Plan On Reading Next: "The Mistress's Revenge" by Tamar Cohen.

Comments and Concerns: My biggest concern is that I won't be able to get a lot of reading done, because I'll have to run errands with my mom & dad. But I'm going to get on the reading wagon late night/early morning, to try and cover as much ground as I possibly can.

In Conclusion:  If you're on Twitter, make sure to add me and say hello! Use the hashtag #OUreadathon to check out what the other participants are up to, what books they're reading, and what they're talking about. HAPPY READING EVERYONE!!!


  1. You have some chunky books there! Good luck! :)

  2. I've heard a lot of great things about Divergent so that one should be an awesome read.

    Looks like you're in the same boat I am, a huge stack of thick books. Mine is already intimidating me and I'm thinking of vetoing a choice or two because I have some books arriving today [one being Linger by Maggie Stiefvater] that I'm just dying to read.

    Good luck!

  3. Oh yes, reading Linger is a definite MUST since Forever will be out tomorrow...I'm even hoping to make it to her signing in VA tomorrow afternoon!

    Dear Amber,

    Thank you for your comment! Yeah, I just chose based on what I wanted to read, and not what would be most suitable - which may not be the best strategy for a read-a-thon, but *shrugs* I ran with it! lol :P Hope you'll continue to visit...

    Hey Ash,

    I've heard NOTHING but good things about Divergent, so I'm keeping it for the 2nd or 3rd day, when I feel like I'm burning out! lol :P Good luck with your thick books - I think there's nothing wrong with switching books out, or adding any books to your list as you go! :D
