UPDATE: Day 3 -- Bout of Books Read-a-Thon Day 2: Switch It, Change It, Rearrange It!

Flo here on Day 2 of the Read-a-Thon...and I completely want to change it!

The reality is, I am a BookNerd. That means there will be always be a list of about 5 books that are in my immediate TBR pile, followed by a list of about 25 that are in my general TBR pile. In the grand scheme of things, this one week can help my immediate TBR, but it really won't make too much a difference in my general TBR. Unless...

Unless, I dedicate this Read-a-Thon to those handful of books that I have been saying FOREVER that I will read. You know them. We all have them. Those books that you know will be great because they have gotten great reviews from so many in the blogging community (for example, the Summer series by Jenny Han or the If I Stay books by Gayle Forman), yet because they are not new they are shifted over to the general TBR pile. These books are only ever moved over for some random reason, like me wanting to read the Summer series in summer or happening upon the If I Stay audiobook at the library.

So, I revised my lists to include those books. Without further adieu...

Reading Goals for the Week

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
As much of the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa as I can
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
One Day by David Nicholls (it's the BookNerds Blog August Read Along, so I have to keep it)

Stretching It Goals for the Week (as in, if I happen to get lucky and finish the books above)

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
Heist Society by Ally Carter
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares

Day 1: Monday the 22nd
Read pages 1 - 108 of Ready or Not.
Today #insixwords: Wasn't a lazy day like planned :(

Day 2: Tuesday the 23rd
Finished Unwind by Neal Shusterman
Read to page 132 of Ready or Not, and I'm trying to decide whether to read further or not. So far it's not as good as the first one.
Today #insixwords: Completely redid bout of books plan!

Day 3: Wednesday the 24th
Read to page 48 of Hush, Hush
Read to page 87 of The Iron King
Today #insixwords: Watched TV instead of my reading
