Tomorrow the Bout of Books Read-a-thon begins.   This is the first read-a-thon of the year for me.  I'm looking forward to it.

I will do all of my updating on here and on twitter.

My Goals
  • Read every day
  • Finish the book I started on the 1st of the month
  • Read at least 3 more books
  • Participate in some of the challenges

Books To Read

I haven't really picked out books that I want to read this time besides the one I would like to finish.  I may just continue reading the books I have for that series.

Mini Challenge: The New Year's Resolution Challenge

Wrap Up: Well I was able to complete all my goals.  I read 4 books and 4 novellas for a total of 1094 pages. I liked that I didn't choose the books to read ahead of time so I didn't feel pressured to read anything specific.  I participated in a few challenges and tried commenting on a few blogs. I had fun as usual.

  1. My goodness, that guy on the Feast of Fools cover looks just like Nick Carter 12 years ago. D:

    I really need to try Rachel Caine's books.

    Well done Melissa, you did it! :)

    1. Thanks! The Morganville Vampires series is pretty good. I tried The Weather Wardens series but I couldn't get into them. I haven't tried any of her other series though.

  2. Great job reaching your goals! 4 books AND 4 novellas, that's pretty awesome. I've read Snow White Blood Red, and I've only read the first two of the Morganville series, but the others look really interesting as well. I'm happy to hear you had fun.
