An Extra Hour of Reading Read-a-Thon

25 Hour Books is hosting a read-a-thon in order to take advantage of the extra hour we get as we switch over to Daylight Savings Time! Go to this post at 25 Hour Books for more information and to sign up.

This was the perfect excuse for a read-a-thon! I should probably be doing homework, but I won't be working on Monday so I will make up my assignments then. If you're interested, check back throughout the day for my read-a-thon updates!

Also, while you're here, please check out my Pick It For Me post to vote on which book I will read this week and review on Saturday!

Let the read-a-thon begin!

First up is Frost by Wendy Delsol. Not only is it the sequel to an amazing book (Stork), but I thought the title was a great way to mark the changing seasons! I will be reading this until I fall asleep.

Of course, after I started Frost, I realized I had another book called Frost that was written by Marianna Baer, and I had to read that one as well! I only got through the first chapter before going back to the Delsol title, but it was very interesting! Hopefully I will be able to get through both books during the read-a-thon!

We had Boyfriend's niece's baptism today, so I got to read in the car. Now, I  couldn't put off all of my homework, so I have to put together a (hopefully quick!) PowerPoint for class. After that, though, it's back to reading!

I finally finished my PowerPoint, got everything turned in, and got back to my book. Delsol's Frost is soo good! I'm a little frustrated with relationship development, but I love Katla, her spunk, and all of the mythology going on in this series!

I'm going to have to call an end to the read-a-thon . . . Once Upon a Time has taped, and Boyfriend and I really want to watch it! I hope everyone else who participated enjoyed the books they read!
