The Hot Summer Read-a-Thon is now over! I’m sad it had to end, but if you read further, I did find another read-a-thon to help me keep the momentum going. πŸ™‚ Big thanks to Jen and Patrick for hosting this event!

The Goals:Β 

  • To have fun (as always)
  • To read (and this might be ambitious) at least EIGHT BOOKS.
  • To chat with other participants using the #HSReadathon hashtag.

Time for Reading:Β 

Oh, I have time for reading — I just hope that I can stay awake for it since I’ve been super tired lately.

Books to be Read:Β 

Might as well keep up the momentum with the review books, right?

These choices could very well change, but I am determined to make a HUGE dent in my review pile in the next few weeks! Hopefully I can complete this and more!

  1. Seven books?! You crazy! πŸ™‚ At least you will have a lot of books to write reviews for in the new year (I don’t know if you write them right away or not).

    And you’re doing another read-a-thon already? I suppose if you’re on a streak! You have some great books picked out for it, I loved Dark Triumph! Furious and Scorch are both really good too! Good luck with it!

  2. So glad you’re joining us for High Summer, Kristilyn! You have a great list there. Hope you get to do some reading and not be too tired. πŸ™‚ Just a little over 4 hours until the starting line post goes live. Be sure to sign in when you start reading for the week.

    • Thank you! I’ll have to link up my post … I’ve been without my preferred choice of blogging (i.e. laptop), so I’ve been neglecting things! At least I’ve been reading!
