From Dusk 'Till Dawn Read.A.Thon in Progress


I am a night owl, always have been and more than likely always will be... so when I came across this read-a-thon on Jami's blog (YA Addict) I knew I had to sign up! I will be participating each night and will post a "results" posting at the end of the challenge. I would say wish me luck but I think my family will need luck more than I will... momma is out of order this week!  

Here is my list of books so far (I am hopeful.. Kelli don't laugh) and why I chose them:

(Review) Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
To prepare myself for the final installment
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Because I have been anxiously waiting for 2 years! Kelli & myself are at great odds when it comes to Peeta and gale (yes I purposely did not capitalize his name... & I spelled in correctly Kelli). See Catching Fire Second Opinion Review for the battle of words.

The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall by Mary Downing Hahn
It seems like a quick, spooky read and becasue this is an ARC that we received that needs to be reviewed.

And Then Everything Unraveled by Jennifer Sturman
And Then I Found Out the Truth by Jennifer Sturman
I won both of these from a giveaway @ YA Addict!  and I just got them in the mail. And I am a sucker for any type of love story.

The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade
I bought this one because I thought the cover was so cute, then I gave it to Kelli to read and she told me it was my kind of read ;0)

... just in case you are new to I'd So Rather Be Reading... I (Natalie) openly admit that Kelli is my "filter"... don't be jealous, you can benefit by reading her reviews :0)

  1. Nat,

    Okay, first off, it's Gale, not Gail. Get it right or pay the price! Just kidding. And you can't capitalize his name because you know I was right with my Gale quotes and you can't refute them. Oh yeah, I said it...

    That is a good list, but we both know you will probably just read and then re-read Mockingjay! But you better read Crutchfield Hall because my delicate psyche cannot handle another ghost story.

    Are you going to give your kids benadryl so they sleep longer? I would, :)

  6. Alright Kelli, when I start this read.a.thon @ 8 tonight the gloves are coming off! I spelled gay... I mean gale's name right... I am out of clever comeback because I am TRYING to refrain from reading Mockingjay, but don't worry they will come :0)

    @ Stephanie and The Paperback Princess, thank you so much for the awards. The post will be up first thing tomorrow to pass it on!

  8. The Ghost and the Goth looks like a great read! And I must admit I'm Team Peeta. I haven't read Mockingjay yet though so I have no idea what happens.
