My Goals!

I love the week long read a thons. They always make me feel like I can actually get some reading done although I normally don’t! I just started really getting into Sci Fi so I’m even more excited about this one.

For any read a thons, I always add more books than I can get to. This allows me to play with my list just in case something doesn’t quite work for me.

I’m hoping to read:

I have not done great the past few read a thons but I’m really hoping to get these five done!

Notes:
WHY did I start with such a long book? While I think it is amazing, this is taking a lot of time away from other books. I’m sticking with it because it is too good to put down.

FINALLY finished It by Stephen King. Okay, it was worth it. I don’t know why this isn’t technically considered Sci Fi. Most of the story is not so I am guessing that is why but I thought it was brilliant, either way.

Sunday 6/04

Number of books I’ve read today: 1
Total number of books I’ve read: 2

Books: Plan to read —
Agent to the Stars by John Scalzi, Hold back the Stars by Katie Khan
Notes:
total pages 1,396
Having ended on a very high note with IT, I thought I would keep that going but in the serious Sci Fi genre with Agent to the Stars. I was not disappointed. Love it! Now to figure out which book to read next.

    You finished IT…since Thursday? I’m thoroughly impressed! I’m actually hosting a read-along for it all summer long (June, July, August). I’ve never read it so I’m pretty excited. The new movie looks exciting too.

    So, I’d say you’re pretty much kicking ass. lol I hope you’re enjoying it. I’m glad you joined us!

      I’m definitely feeling pretty good! I don’t know why it isn’t Sci Fi though but I’m saying it’s Sci Fi damn it! 😉 Now for some John Scazi. That’s my go to sci fi author now.

      Thank you for hosting this. I love all of your read a thons!
