Bout of Books Readathon: Day 5


Despite having a slow start yesterday and babysitting for a little while, I was able to read 350 pages and finish City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare - review will be up tomorrow.

I started Jane Was Here this morning, but after 30 pages I just couldn't read anymore of it. It's just not for me. So now I have to decide whether I go with Delirium or City of Lost Souls. Choices, choices. What would you all recommend?


Today's challenge is hosted by Jacinda of The Reading Housewives {here}

It's all about books & shoes. I just got a new pair on Wednesday and they reminded me of Cassandra Clare's character Isabelle in the Mortal Instrument series - which I have been reading for the last 2 weeks! How fitting :)



And just a little update on my goals:
  • I want to read 1 book a day or at least 1/2 a book each day of the readathon. Day 1: 350 pg (finished 1 book); Day 2: 513 pg (finished 1 book); Day 3: 52 pages; Day 4: 350 pages (finished 1 book).
  • I want to participate in one Twitter chat. - Today's is at 2pm EST. I will be present! woo!
  • I want to finish all of my April books and half of my May books. - Done with April...now I gotta get going on my May books. There are 7, I've read 1.
 Books I'm hoping to read:
  • Jane Was Here by Sarah Kerochan (April)
  • City of Glass by Cassandra Clare (April)
  • City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare (April)
  • City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare (May)
  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith (May)
  • Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (May)
  • Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare (May)
  • Insurgent by Veronica Roth (YA Goodreads Group - May)
  • Delirium by Lauren Oliver (YA Goodreads Group - May)
  • Still Alice by Lisa Genova (Clamhouse Book Club - May)
  • Netgalley books: Dark Frost, Dark Kiss, The Girl in the Clockwork Collar, Titanic: The Long Night, Escaping the Titanic, The Weepers, The Immortal Rules
