Today it's my turn to host for the Last Reads of 2012 Readathon (find out what I'm talking about HERE! You can still sign up! If I mention anything that you don't understand, it will be cleared up in the Readathon post) and I am posting about something called "Sleep? What’s That For?" If you would also like to post your own version of this "challenge," feel free to do so! Just make sure to include a little description of the challenge. Or just leave me comment on this post!
This Readathon is a Readathon built specifically to let you catch up on your last books of 2012! Want to read some of those review books you got ages ago but have been meaning to get to? What about that book that you bought but has been collecting dust on your shelf ever since? This is the place to get caught up on that! Just go HERE and find out what you can do and sign up!
My challenge, "Sleep? What’s That For?" is pretty self-explanatory. They're the Books That Kept You Up All Night! You know, those night you do this when the rest of the world is sleeping:
Then you start getting really tired and sleepy and you want to do this:
But the book is SO good/intriguing that you just HAVE to find out what happens next, so you do this:
And the next day you feel like:
this: and/or this:
Yeah, we've all been there. So what books have kept me up all night? Let's take a look! Now, it was hard to just choose a handful since I'm a night owl and, naturally, I stay up and read at night. So I'm going to cheat by listing some series instead of singular books.. (click on the images to take you to the book's Goodreads page for more info)
See my review of: Stake That | Girls That Growl | Bad Blood | Night School | Blood Ties | Soul Bound | Blood Forever (coming soon)
See my review of: Kiss of Frost | Dark Frost | Crimson Frost (coming soon)
See my review of: If I Die | Never To Sleep | Before I Wake (still reading it ;))
This one was a very cool retelling. The ending especially kept me hooked...I really wanted to know how things would turn out. I was so close to the end, and it was already late, so I said, "Eh, I'm already up, might as well finish it and satisfy my curiosity." ;)
See my review of Jekel Loves Hyde
(just finished this book, so review will be coming soon)
Those are just a few more memorable ones. And dont forget to let me know which books have kept you up at night!
And now onto my goal for the Readathon! Originally, the list below (plus 5 others I'm done with already) is what I wanted to get done... but 10 days to read 10 books?? Ha! I'm a fast reader, but not that fast! These are all review books (with the exception of Before I Wake*, which I am borrowing from the library), so now I'm hoping to get at least 1/2-1/4 of these read before the year ends. In other words, I want to make a good dent in this pile.
- Before I wake (Soul Screamers #6) by Rachel Vincent *
- Renegade (The Elysium Chronicles #1) by J.A. Souders
- Broken by A.E. Rought
- The New Death and Others by James Hutchings
- Narrative Loserdom: From Journal One by Ryan Collins
- Tidal Whispers by various authors
- The Other Slipper by Kenechi Udogu
- Any Love But Mine by Debbie Davies
- The Mine by John A. Heldt
- Phoenix Angel (Shardwell Series #1) by A. Gerry and C. Hall
But we'll see what happens ;) And I'm keeping track of my books on this page, so you can drop by, if you'd like, to see ho I'm doing.
