Halloween Read-a-Thon: Day 2 Updates



All right, everyone, up and at 'em! It's time for Day 2 of the Halloween Read-A-Thon!

If you haven't already, head on over to Young Adult Books Reviewed to sign up. I will be editing this post with all of my updates today.

My reading list for the read-a-thon:
The Reapers are Angels by Alden Bell
Undead and Unwed by MaryJanice Davidson
The Girl's Guide to Vampires by Barb Karg
The Girl's Guide to Werewolves by Barb Karg
Pegasus ARC by Robin McKinley
Witch in the House by Jenna McKnight
The Scent of Shadows by Vicki Pettersson
How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff


HOUR 0
Well, it turned out I had a touch of insomnia last night. It probably had something to do with the extremely loud snoring coming from the other bedroom. (Note: Don't drink alcohol when you're congested. It just makes it worse!) I got about three quarters of the way into Undead and Unwed before sleep finally won the battle.

HOUR 4
Finished up Undead and Unwed, had lunch with the boy. Now, I can't decide whether to start Scent of Shadows by Vicki Pettersson or The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff. Will have to see which one pulls me in more after a few chapters.

HOUR 13
It's always when you try to clear your schedule that chores crop up. It's been kind of a slow reading day. I've stalled out on The Scent of Shadows, so I'm switching to The Reapers are Angels by Alden Bell.

Pages read: 1,290

HOUR 16
Finished The Reapers are Angels - very quick read, not terribly impressive, but I'm glad I finally got it out of my system. There were a few weeks where I would walk by this book displayed on an endcap at the local bookstore, and I swear it was calling my name. I also read one of the stories from the Kiss Me Deadly anthology. I'm going to try to get in a few more chapters of The Scent of Shadows before calling it a night.
