Bout of Books Read-a-Thon: The Starting Line

The Bout of Books Read-a-Thon starts today! I am so excited! This is my last full week before classes start, and I would love to get some serious reading in before the craziness begins again. (And let's not even talk about how bad I've been about writing and posting reviews lately! Yikes!)

Want to join in the fun? Head on over to On a Book Bender to sign up! The read-a-thon will last until Sunday the 28th.

My Starting Line

Read-a-Thon Goals: At least one book per day

Books to Knock Out: No specific titles, but definitely something by Linnea Sinclair. I am having a total fangirl moment for her lately!

How Much Time I Intend to Read: This isn't something I ever track, but hopefully as much as possible!

Updates: Day 1

8:00 AM

I ended up starting right at the midnight starting line as I finished my book last night (An Accidental Goddess by Linnea Sinclair) and wasn't ready to go to sleep yet. So, as the next Sinclair book was downstairs and I was not, I lazily grabbed Grimspace by Ann Aguirre instead. What a wonderful choice! I got about 100 pages in before the words started swimming in front of my face, but I only needed to get to the end of the first chapter before I was hooked.

Now it's 8:00 and I need to run off to my internship, then to help my mom defrost her freezer, and finally to keep working on my submission for Beth Revis's current contest. Reading may or may not resume later tonight.

I stumbled into bed after a long day and managed to eke out about another 50 pages of Grimspace before my eyes refused to continue working. So tired . . .
