My Sunday Edition

Saturday was my birthday and I had a really lovely day. Hubby gave me a new desk and I am loving it! The kids gave me some fancy hot teas, the largest mug I have ever seen as well as a few books!

So let’s get started…

I am actually surprised I finished as many books as I did this week:

6. Florence by Ciye Cho – Review coming this week!

Starting Monday I will be participating in Once Upon a Readathon. This is a readathon where you set a goal for yourself to read more books than the average number of books you read. In three days I usually can read a book a day so my goal is going to be 5 books. I am not sure I can do it but I can’t wait to try! If you want to join in on the fun CHECK HERE to find more information.

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon

So far this year I have read 171 books (44,956 pages) towards my goal of 325 books.

That is it for me this week. What did you receive or read this week? Leave me a link so I can drop by and check it out!

    I still haven’t read Divergent. But I’ve heard so many amazing things about it when I finally do get to it I don’t see how it will be able to live up. But I’m sure as soon as I finish it, I’ll be diving right into Insurgent.

      LOL! I haven’t had a chance to read Divergent either. I really need to get it back from my daughter so I can read it! 🙂

    Happy late birthday!!
    Bitterblue and Insurgent were both really good books, I hope you enjoy the ones you bought too. 171 books is a crazy amount, that’s awesome! I’m at 66 for my goal of 100 🙂 Good luck with the read-a-thon!

    Insurgent! Ahh I loved Divergent, I haven’t read the second book yet but I can’t wait to.

    Bitterblue, I haven’t read any of the books in the series but I’ve heard they’re really good. So I can’t wait to get my hands on them!

    Awesome haul!

    Wow, you have Bitterblue – I’m really jealous! I’ve been wanting to read it for ages but have so many books on my TBR pile I’m not sure when I would be able to fit it in! 🙂

  5. Krystianna says:

    I’ve been meaning to read the Graceling series. I have heard that it is a really good high fantasy series.
    I’ve also been meaning to read Insurgent, but it’s just SO HUGE!

    You received some great books 🙂

Let me know what you think or if you have a question!
