Day 18 – Monday, September 18th

2:40 PM – After waking up at 9:40 am I Charged up with coffee,  and I finished reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue, with 81 pages. It seems each book in this series focuses on one of the characters. In this one, the focus is on Blue Sargent. This is the best part of this series, the characters. If not for the characters, I think I would pass on this series. But I have to admit I’m hooked. I need to know what’s going to happen to them next.

7:05 PM – I decided to Listen to the Audiobook to Red Queen and read 53 pages. Then I picked up Antisocial and read 47 pages of that

11:00 PM – The I Suck at Readathons Read-a-thon started today, two of the challenges are to read 10 pages a day and read for 20 minutes a day. So I read 16 pages of The Stolen White Elephant by Mark Twain. This a funny collection of witty, silly stories. I also started reading The Penultimate Peril for 20 Minutes and managed 22 pages.

Day 20 – Wednesday, September 20th

10:00 AM – Before going to sleep, I read 10 pages of The Stolen White Elephant and 20 pages of The Penultimate Peril.

12:30 PM – I then read Another 10 pages of The Stolen White Elephant after waking up. Its really well written. I Haven’t read anything by Mark Twain before this, but I’m looking forward to add more of his works to my list.

3:00 PM – I then decided to start read Harvest Moon by Tonya Coffey, and read 44 pages. This is the First book in the A New World series  I received a eBook of this book by the Author ages ago and still haven’t read it yet. So far I’m enjoying it. I love the premise, It’s really interesting and intriguing.

5:40 PM – I read another 44 pages of The Penultimate Peril and so far I’d have to say this is probably my Favourite book in A Series of Unfortunate Events.

10:00 PM – And Then I decided to listen to the Tashi Audiobook by Anna Fienberg and read about 512 pages. This Audiobooks contains all 16 books in the Tashi series. Even though this is a children’s book series, this is a lot of to read/ listen to. Tashi is Jack’s new friend, and he comes from a place very far away. He has had many exciting adventures, and every day he shares one of them with Jack.

11:30 PM – I didn’t do anymore reading after 10pm, I had an Allergy-related sinus headache due to having hay fever that kept me from focusing for long. But I’m extremely happy with amount that I did read.

12:30 PM – Then I read 10 pages of The Stolen White Elephant and 38 pages of The Penultimate Peril.

5:00 PM – I then read 35 pages of Deltora Quest by Emily Rodda. The book is 8 short fantasy stories about a heroic trio – a blacksmith’s son, a wild and brash forest girl and a palace guard – trying to save the land of Deltora from the evil Shadow Lord. This is actually a reread for me, I read these as a kid. When I decided to reread this series I was worried I wouldn’t enjoy it anymore as this was a childhood favourite, but I’m enjoying it a lot.

11:59 PM – I also finished listening to the Tashi Audiobook and I really enjoyed it.
