Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

Update for Bout of Books read-a-thon:

Well, I haven't read as much as I would have liked so far. The week started horribly for me and it took me a while to actually continue reading (I'd start reading, then stop and do other things).

So far I've read 682 pages towards my goal of 2,000 pages (Notice the tickers on the sidebar? I'll be updating those as often as I can). Hoping to read a lot this weekend so I can complete my goal.

The Challenge Questions: 

1~ What book are you most looking forward to based on summary alone? Feel free to show off the summary!



I'd say Shattered (Alaskan Courage #2) by Dani Pettrey!


Piper McKenna couldn’t be more thrilled that her prodigal brother, Reef, has returned to Yancey, Alaska, after five years. But her happiness is short-lived when Reef appears at her house covered in blood. A fellow snowboarder has been killed--but despite the evidence, Reef swears he's innocent. And Piper believes him.

Deputy Landon Grainger loves the McKennas like family, but he's also sworn to find the truth. Piper is frustrated with his need for facts over faith, but he knows those closest to you have the power to deceive you the most. With his sheriff pushing for a quick conviction, some unexpected leads complicate the investigation, and pursuing the truth may mean risking Landon's career.

With Piper waging her own search, the two head deep into Canada's rugged backcountry--and unexpected complications. Not only does their long friendship seem to be turning into something more, but this dangerous case is becoming deadlier with each step.


2~ What book are you most looking forward to based on cover art alone? Feel free to show off the beautiful cover art!



There are a lot of gorgeous covers, so this is really tough, but I'll pick Grave Consequences by Lisa T. Bergren. I also want to really read this book because of the way the first book ended. :)

I've read 10 review books so far this month. Only 5 away from my goal!! :)


There you have it, that is what I accomplished (reading-wise) this week. What about you?

  1. You did pretty good on your read-a-thon! How many did you complete by the end? I finished 2 books this week! I was glad since I haven't been reading much lately. I downloaded all of the 7 hours series. I'm looking forward to getting into them. Can't wait to see what you think. Here's my weekend report: http://myfavoritepastime.blogspot.com/2012/08/weekend-report.html
