Spring into Horror Read-a-thon



Michelle of The True Book Addict is hosting Spring into Horror Read-a-thon on her Season's of Reading blog this week. The read-a-thon starts tomorrow April 22nd and goes on through April 28th.  You can sign up to participate in the read-a-thon here.

Good Luck and Happy Reading!!


I will be tracking all my progress below.  I have only selected one book to read for the read-a-thon. The rest of the books will be chosen as I go.  My goal this time around is higher than normal because on Saturday April 27th I will be participating in Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon.  So I expect to read a lot more books than normal since during Dewey's I usually read at least 4 books.

Here are my goals.

  • Finish Reading Pretties by Scott Westerfeld. (101/370 Pages)
  • Read at least 6 more books.
  • Comment on a few of the participants blogs.
