- I wanted to read 6 books, and BY GOLLY, I read 6 books! Well, 5 really, because Free Four is only 15 pages long, but who cares! They weren’t all the original planned books but that’s OK too.
- I participated in 2 of the 3 Twitter chats. Sleep was more important during one of them. I had a blast and met a ton of new bloggers.
- I participated in 3 challenges, which were all VERY FUN!
- I entered in the giveaways.
- I thanked the hosts, and I thank them again. YOU are appreciated.
- I HAD FUN.

Currently Reading: Above
My progress today: I finished The Last Bastion of the Living. I started it before the read-a-thon, but hell, it counts, right? It’s a pretty epic read and I will be reviewing it for Rhiannon’s blog tour in June.
Current Mood: I am really tired from my weekend of family and fun. Now I have tons of chores to do and need to start packing. I’m exhausted.
Currently Reading: I had to put Above aside for now. The writing is so irritating, even though I love the world-building. I started In the Path of Falling Objects but I only got 70 pages read today. It’s good! I will continue reading Dead of Night, too. Maberry is the man!
My progress today: I had a ton of errands and chores, and did not get much reading done. I completed the mini-challenge.
Current Mood: Tired and busy as hell, but hopeful.
Currently Reading: In the Path of Falling Objects and Dead of Night
My progress today: I read 130 pages of Path and only 2% of Dead of Night. I finished the free Divergent short called Free Four! These read-a-thons never quite work out how I hope they do…I completed the mini-challenge today.
Current Mood: BUT I WON’T GIVE UP!
Currently Reading: Dead of Night and Abandon. THANKS to Bout of Books Twitter Chat last night, I learned about Overdrive. I downloaded Room to listen to while packing.
My progress today: I finished Path in the late afternoon and started Abandon in the evening. I pretty much devoured half of Abandon into the early morning. I will finish it Friday, no doubt. Room in audio is annoying but after a while, I got used to it. I do have the paperback too, so I can pick up where the audio leaves off at any point.
Current Mood: Emotional and exhausted.
Currently Reading: Room and Oracle’s Moon.
My progress today: I devoured Abandon. Thank goodness I have Underworld! But I decided to start Oracle’s Moon instead. I am wicked glad I did. I am LOVING Khalil, as expected. I read 70% of the book yesterday. I refused to stop reading until I go some horizontal bop action, or in this instance, some vertical floating action, Word! I completed the mini-challenge today.
Current Mood: Tired and crampy. A perfect day to lay in bed and READ!
Currently Reading: Room and Underworld
My progress today: I finished Oracle’s Moon. Good LAWDIE! *fans self* I am also happy that many of you enjoyed the book poem challenge. It IS challenging, but great fun too.
Current Mood: In a GREAT mood. I’ve read some really fantastic books this week! Also, I saw The Avengers again last night, and I pretty much need to marry Tony Stark. His sarcasm and snark SLAY me!
Currently Reading: Underworld
My progress today: I finished Room near midnight, and I should have written my review right then because the damn book kept me up into the wee hours of the night. It would NOT get out of my head!
Current Mood: My mood was fantastic today but I trucked along.
THANK YOU FOR THE GREAT WEEK!
