YA book reviews, reading and recommending since 2009

The read-a-thon has began!

Wow it has been a year or so since the first time I participated in the read-a-thon! 🙂 Wish me luck and hopefully this read-a-thon will be more successful than last year’s.

Where are you reading from today?
Home sweet home

3 facts about me …
-YA book reviewer
-I love Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater so much, I own two copies of it. 😛
-I have never eaten at IN N OUT.

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
Five books!

Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?
Finish all five books in 24 hours!

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Read short novels. Prepare the food, coffee, etc beforehand and have it on the table beside you to save time walking to the kitchen. Multitask and eat and read at the same time! Do not put too much pressure on yourself or you won’t have the mood to read.

OH, and all the best to everyone participating as well. YOU CAN DO IT!
