Readathon Master Post -

So I am participating as a reader in Dewey’s readathon this year! This always seems to come at a time when I am absolutely slammed and this year is no exception. I have a few more chores to finish up and then I plan on battening down the hatches for a long night reading. I read half of Incarnate by Jodi Meadows last night as a prequel and to make up for time I knew I would lose this morning.

More later, after I mop these floors ;)


Almost done with my cleaning. I straightened my TBR shelves. Yes, that is all TBR.

Reading List

I plan on finishing Incarnate and then some of these ebooks. Do you have a favorite I should try first from the list?


Now that I am finally reading its going fast. Loving Incarnate so much. Such a quick, interesting, and unique idea.


I finished Incarnate and did a lot of the mini challenges. They were pretty fun. I especially liked the book sentences and anthology challenges. Now on to a new book.


I started reading Crave and my husband went to check the mail. What a wonderful day for a bookish jewelry order to come in. If you are interested in the store I bought it from the designer messaged me on Etsy to say she had several designs going up this week. Click here to visit.


*WHINES* What the hell Pam? (talks to self) So you decide to read a 431 page book! This late at night! You’ve only finished one damn book with the kids and other distractions today. You are the worst Readathoner ever. EVER.


So I read 150 pages of Crave. Its really good and I love where it is going but I needed a bath and I don’t take my iPad into the bath and I was getting a little emo about the big page amount, so I picked up First Day on Earth by Cecil Castellucci since it was a thin ARC at 150 pages.

This story is blowing my mind. Its about a boy named Mal and his day to day life, he was abducted by aliens, its all in the first person like he is talking to you and its amazing. Really, I think we will learn he wasn’t actually abducted, but uses that as a coping mechanism because his dad left and his mom is an alcoholic now, a really bad throwing up on the floor alcoholic, and he hopes to be abducted again and go light years away. Beautiful and sad.


I think that is it for me kiddies! I read Incarnate, and First Day on Earth and 1/3 of Crave. Not my best but I had a lot going on today. I did like the fun and festivity, perhaps I shall do this again sometime.

    Good luck with the readathon, Pam. When you get round to it. I was lucky and managed to keep the weekend free. Finished one book, 1/3 way into the next. Having fun.

    Hope you get some serious reading done!

    Oh wow that’s a lot of books TBR. Good luck on your readathon! I hope you get through a bunch of them!

    I enjoyed Half-Blood and it was a quick and engaging read!

    The Strange Case of Finley Jane is also a quick and easy novella. Very enjoyable.

    But I’d love to hear what you think about Mile 81. I always love Stephen King stories.

    October and June are always the busiest months of the year for me. Somehow I still manage to participate at least a little. I hate missing out!

    I hope you get lots read Pam! Although I haven’t read The Strange Case of Finley Jayne, I really liked The Girl in the Steel Corset, so I’d recommend that one. :)

    I hope you’re having a great readathon Pam! I don’t have any book recommendations, but a lot of people have been reading the Patrick Ness book lately :)

    Wow, what a TBR shelf! I have A Monster Calls on my list, too. Whatever you choose to read for the rest of the readathon, enjoy!

    Love that book necklace! I’ve already clicked over because I must have one! Immediately going on my Pinterest “I Want” List. :)

    And again…another book to add to ye old TBR pile, First Day on Earth sounds phenomenal! I love the concept. Yay!

    Keep up the reading! You’re doing great!

    Awesome job. And I love that jewelry. Glad you’re liking Crave and the Castellucci book – she was one of my favorites I’ve ever seen at a signing!

    Keep up the awesome work!

    I’m glad to see I’m not the only one with a crazy huge TBR bookcase!

    Sounds like you had a great read-a-thon, even if it was only 2 1/3 books. If you hadn’t taken part, maybe you wouldn’t have even read that many!

    Glad to hear you liked Incarnate and the part of Crave you read! Am really interested in reading both ASAP. Thanks!

    Somehow stumbled on your blog through Google, looking for Etsy shops. Thanks for pointing me to Sweetstella’s shop on Etsy, I might even feature on my own blog!
