Woohoo, a read-a-thon, my first one and i am super excited!! This read-a-thon is hosted by Bout of Books.
I will be doing an update everyday on my blog using the schedule from 'Bout of Books' to make it easier (see below), keeping update on my twitter & my Goodreads account, and participate in the twitter chats if i am able too. For me, i have sent myself a big enough goal (see below) with being a full-time mum and having health problems at present means i need to sleep a lot. I am determined, put not going to put pressure on myself and ENJOY IT BECAUSE IT IS ABOUT FUN!. Some people have 10 books as their goal and i am like wow, i am struggling with the thought of 4.
My goal is 4 books and mainly review books because i need to get through them and this is an ideal opportunity;
Book 1*Saving June
Book 2*The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight
Book 3*The Good Father
Book 4*Putting Alice Back together
I also plan to meet new bloggers and check out new blogs.
Number of books I’ve read today: i'm reading 2 books at once...book 2 and 3.
Total number of books I’ve read: Reading 2 at once
Books: 0 completed
Pages today: Almost 200pages (Book2=134, Book3=64)
Feeling: Great,proud of myself but shattered. Reading 2 books as one is paperback and the other is an e-book. Loving both books. Chatting to people on twitter and visiting new blogs, happy.
5/15 Tuesday (At hospital today)
Number of books I’ve read today: Completed 1 book and almost 1/2 way through the other
Total number of books I’ve read: 1 and a 1/2 lol
Books: 1 completed
Pages today: 120pages (Book2=80, Book3=40).
Feeling: Bit rubbish with reading today but i did finish my paperback so happy with that. I think the e-books on my computer for review are holding me back-wish they were on my kindle. Difficult hospital appt so felt too down to read and my kids were on a bit crazy today so no mummy time really. Better day tomorrow, fingers crossed.
Number of books I’ve read today: I read one book 'The Good Father'...i managed to complete it
Total number of books I’ve read: 2 books completed now and 2 to go.
Books: 2 completed- see above.
Pages today: 186pages.
Feeling: I did a lot of reading today. I did a few block slots of reading and then lots of on and off reading- worked fine and i was determined to finish the book. I did and i loved the book, it was amazing. I finished it around 9.20pm and i didn't see the point of starting the 3rd book when i felt i had read so much. I wanted to catch up with goodreads, twitter and blogging.
Number of books I’ve read today: started on book 3 (Saving June by Hannah Harrington), read 130pages..over half of book
Total number of books I’ve read: During read-a-thon so far i've read 2 books and i got 1/2 way through 3rd so well on plan to meet all my goals during read-a-thon.
Books: started on book 3 and i'm half way
Pages total; I have read 130pgs today
Feeling: I am so proud of how much i have done today considering how much of a difficult day it was to read but i'm loving this book :)
Number of books I’ve read today: today was just a complete fail :( i'm still reading the book that i was on yesterday, not had much time to read.
Total number of books I’ve read:Still same as yesterday :(
Books: still same as yesterday, i said today was a complete fail.
Pages total; 70pgs, completely rubbish!
Feeling; I am just fed-up, not well, health problems flaring up, had lots of naps and then other have got a film to watch in the evening when the kids were in bed. I felt so ill that i had an early night. I did want to finish the book though as only 33pgs left but i couldn't manage it :( I haven't done today's challenge, not done regular updates daily and not read blogs or twittered much. Life is just too difficult sometimes :(
Number of books I’ve read today: If i thought yesterday was an epic fail then i had no idea that total was going to be almost zero reading. HOWEVER, i finished book #3 today 'Saving June'
Total number of books I’ve read: During this read-a-thon i have now read 3 books and i have 1 book to go, which is 'Putting Alice Back Together' by Carol Marinelli.
Books: All 3 books read are listed above and just one more to go :)
Pages total: today, a shocking 33pgs and that was only to get to the end of the 3rd book. I did plan on reading half the 4th book but it didn't happen and i wasn't even busy so i have idea what happened.
Feeling: I feel like i have really let myself down, especially the last 2 days because i have 1 day l eft and 1 book, which happens to be the longest book!!! Almost 300pages both. I am going to read all day tomorrow though if i have too.
Number of books I've read today:I have managed to finish a full book in a day...it was the longest book i had to read too with almost 300pages.
Total number of books I've read: 4, which means i have met my goal.....WOOHOO!!
Books: The 4 books i read where the ones that i planned to read for my goals :)
Pages total: Today i read 291pages!!! that is the most i have ever read during the read-a-thon and has definitely made up for the last few days of rubbish.
Feeling:I feel amazing!!! I am so proud of myself! Honestly, I didn't think i could do it and i have and just wow!! what a feeling. I have all the reviews to do now, damn haha x
