Once Upon a Read-a-Thon: Day 1 Updates

Today is Day 1 of the Once Upon a Read-a-Thon! Head on over to Pure Imagination to sign up - today's the last day to register for prizes!

Day 1 Updates

7:00 AM - I am wiped! After finishing the assignment due later today (finally!), I picked up my copy of Touched by an Alien and was promptly sucked back into the story. Alas, my eyes do not want to stay open too much longer. Nap time.

4:30 PM - I got some sleep, my library books have been returned, and now it's time to get back to the read-a-thon! :)

Mini Challenge #1: Hosted by I B Book Blogging

Question #1: What is your favorite type of myth?

I am definitely a fan of Greek mythology, mostly because I am very familiar with it. That said, I love to read about any type of mythology, especially those with which I am unfamiliar, because it gives me a chance to learn something new.

Question #2: What is your favorite book with some type of mythology in it?

Wildefire by Karsten Knight! It's one of my new favorite books. Knight mixes in all kinds of different mythologies into one book. It is pure happiness rolled into 400 pages. :)

Mini Challenge #2: Hosted by The Musings of ALMYBNENR is CRAZY! I'll have to come back to that one later - I only have half of the covers so far.

6:00 PM - Just finished Touched by an Alien! Loved it! I will have to pick up the rest of this series ASAP - Koch is a great writer. Off to exercise now, eat dinner, and relax with Boyfriend for a while. Hopefully will pick up a new book later on tonight.

  1. So glad you liked Touched by an Alien! I really enjoyed that one too though I haven't gotten to the other books in the series yet. I'm looking forward to getting caught up:) Good luck with the rest of the read-a-thon!
