Once Upon a Read-a-Thon Updates and Such

 

image

I am officially an addict. I am going to give this one a go because this is one of my favorite readathons of the year. I am hoping to get some review reading done this time as well as some fun stuff that I have been putting off (and a couple of rereads here and there).

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon TBR-

  • Vampire Academy books
  • Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series
  • Outlander series (read the first one already)
  • Anne of Green Gables (it’s time for my yearly go-round)
  • and some romance novels here and there.

I am also going to be baking all week so I might update on that as well. And I am not sure how much reading I am going to get done with the heinous amount of baking I have to do but I sure and shoe leather am going to try.

I’ll update on my reading tomorrow morning.

Mini Challenge Question 1:
What is your favorite type of myth (Greek, Roman, Egyptian etc)?

I have always been a big fan of Greek mythology. Since I was a kid really. I had a huge book that I used to cart around with me as a kid. I used to take it to church with me.

Mini Challenge from YA Bliss:

Top 3 Love Triangles:

Peeta vs Gale- I love being surprised by who I love the most and I thought I would totally cheer for Gale but I ended up loving Peeta.

Wentworth/Anne/Louisa from Persuasion- There is nothing better than that triangle because it was so heartwrenching.

Edward vs Jacob- Because I dunno. As much as I have my quibbles with Twilight, the fanfiction makes me love it and they always do this triangle really well.

  3. Holy tooty-frooty (yes I did just right that) you read a ton of books. Quite impressive. I wish I would have read more, but I guess you made up for my lack of reading. Wow.
