Wicked Valentine's Read-A-Thon goals & updates

I'm going to make my second attempt at a read-a-thon, since the last one wasn't super successful (bad timing for me). This one actually started yesterday and runs through Valentine's Day, but I didn't get a chance to post my goals until today.
Wicked Valentine's Read-a-Thon

My Goals:
  • Read 100 pages per day
  • Finish 2 1/2 books
  • Participate in at least 1 Twitter chat
  • Visit other blogs and make some new book friends.
These are the books I'll be reading:

I need to finish the last half of Gone Girl and I definitely want to read The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead. It comes out on the 12th, so I'm not sure what book I'll read in between these two. I'll just play it by ear. Hopefully I can get in a good reading groove and get through all of these! I'll try to post some updates as the read-a-thon progresses. Wish me luck!

Daily Updates:

Day 1- Thurs 2/8
Books I'm working on: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Pages read: 135

Day 2- Fri 2/9
Books I'm working on: Finished Gone Girl. Starting The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Pages read: Gone Girl: 59, Scorpio Races: 134. Total for today: 193
Notes: Gone Girl was pretty dang good! I gave it 4 out of 5 stars only because the ending was slightly disappointing. I'd been wanting to read The Scorpio Races for a while now because I love the author's writing style from previous books I've read (The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy!) This one is a little hard to get in to, but I feel like I'm finally getting in a good groove.

Day 3- Sat 2/10
Books I'm working on:

Pages read: 52

Notes: Pretty busy most of the day so I didn't have time to read much.

Day 4- Sun 2/11
Books I'm working on:

Pages read: 0 :(

Notes: Friends visiting from out of town. No time to read today :(

Day 5- Mon 2/12
Books I'm working on:
 
Pages read: 117

Notes: I'm on page 303 of 413 pages in this book. I wish I could read more but I'm so tired and my eyes won't stay open any longer. Hoping to get my hands on The Indigo Spell tomorrow when it finally comes out! I've been waiting months to read this, ever since I finished The Golden Lily.

Day 6- Tues 2/13
Books I'm working on:
Yay! The Indigo Spell just came out today & I already got my hands on it. I wish I could sit & read it all day but I'm actually babysitting today and tomorrow. Waiting until nap time to read may be torture with this book.
Pages read: 202


Day 7- Wed 2/14
Books I'm working on:

Pages read: 110 so far

  3. What did you think of Gone Girl? I read it a while back and LOVED it, but I know it's one of those books that people either love or hate, lol.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! New follower! :)
