Read-A-Thon Weekend Goals and Updates



The Ready Set Read-A-Thon is hosted by
Dani @ Booktacular World and Fay @ A Dreamer's Thoughts 

and 

Letters Inside Out button
Labor Day Read-A-Thon is being hosted by
 Amanda @ Letters Inside Out 

I love read-a-thons and find they give me extra motivation to increase my reading and attack both my TBR pile and my ARC pile. Both read-a-thons run through the holiday weekend, click on the image and join in the fun! 



Here are the Books I plan to read:
Racing with the Wind by Regina Walker
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan 
Cursed by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Yesterday by C.K. Kelly Martin
Last to Die: A Rizzoli and Isles Novel by Tess Gerristen (finished on Thursday)

Books started: Unspoken
Books finished: 0

good luck! I love read-a-thons too and I wish I could join one for this weekend but I have a wedding to go to and a mock trial competition coming up on the 4th so sadly no fun reading for me :(


I can't wait to see what you think of the books you read :)

Cayce, I have been reading Tess's books for years and the books are so amazing..I am talking edge of your seat mystery crime thrillers with incredible detail that will blow your mind.
So Glad you joined too!

You totally need to rock out Fraterfest though, it should be fun.

Oh I'm excited to read Yesterday! I just finished Unspoken and I didn't click with that one at all but I seem to be in the minority so. Curious to see what you'll think.
