Croak by Gina Damico and Fallenwood by Leslie Soule

Croak! It was such a funny and entertaining read!

The strawberries I ate were pretty awesome.

5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!

I’ve seen a few that I plan to go back to once it’s over. I haven’t really had the chance to look around today though, but guarantee you I will be looking when this is all over.

Mini Challenge: Library Memories

Hosted by Kanaye

Comment and tell me, in 200 words or less, about your first experience with a library, or most memorable, most fun, most recent or any other library experience you feel like sharing

I have so many wonderful memories of the local and school libraries. When I was young I would go to the local library for the little get togethers and learn about random things like for example panning for gold, which were actually small toys that we could keep. They’d read us a picture book related to the subject and then let us do activities related to them. I also remember loving the Care-bear section as a kid and staking claim on the giant Clifford the Big Read dog that they had laying on the floor. I even adored the AR (accelerated readers) tests we could take to earn points. Libraries will always hold a special place in my heart.

Update 5: Hour 17

Total time reading: 11 hours and 47 mins

Reading Progress: 

Books Finished: 3

  • Croak by Gina Damico
  • Fallenwood by Leslie Soule
  • Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Zombies by Matt Mogk

Food Eaten: Nothing

EYEWTKAZ was a pretty good book, it has tons of awesome zombie related info based on actual research, cool tidbits about movies and other entertainment as well as some surviving sections. It truly does touch on all the basis and gives a surprising amount of info in less than 300 pages.

Mini Challenge: Me and My Book

Hosted by One Literature Nut

Why not hide that yawn, hold up your book, and share a picture with us?

Update 5: Hour 19

Total time reading: 13 hours

Reading Progress: 31% through Fairy Metal Thunder

Books Finished: 3

  • Croak by Gina Damico
  • Fallenwood by Leslie Soule
  • Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Zombies by Matt Mogk

Food Eaten: Vegetable beef soup with tater tots…yeah odd combo, pretty sure the lack of sleep as something to do with this.

Mini Challenge: Theme Songs

Match your current read (or most recent read if you are in between books) with a song! Something we can sing along to. Instrumental is ok too, if you can keep yourself awake.

Fairies Wear Boots – Black Sabbath

The book I’m reading is named Fairy Metal Thunder, which right away made me think of this song but as I started reading the lyrics come pretty close to a situation the main character finds himself in.

THE END!!

End of Event Meme:

1. Which hour was most daunting for you?
Probably the last hour I stayed awake, I was mentally exhausted so I keep zoning out.

2.Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?

Out of the ones I read yesterday Croak was pretty great! It was a fairly quick read and pretty funny too.

3.Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

Hmm not really, it’s my first year and I was super impressed.

4.What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?

The mini challenges and hour by hour updates were pretty nice, I knew that even if I missed one everything would be recapped in the next hour. The cheerleaders were also fantastic.

5. How many books did you read?

I finished 3 and started a 4th

6. What were the names of the books you read?

Croak by Gina Damico, Fallenwood by Leslie Soule, and Everything you Ever Wanted to Know About Zombies by Matt Mogk

7. Which book did you enjoy most?

I enjoyed them all for different reasons but I think Croak is top of the list as far as entertainment goes.

8. Which did you enjoy least?

I guess Fallenwood by Leslie Soule, but I really liked it too so it’s not that far behind.

9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders?

I was not, but I can say keep up the good work!

10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?

I would definitely participate again, and as a reader (and unofficial cheerleader)
