October 2012 #Readathon Update Two

I’ve decided to just update for every three books I read, to check in with the internet, since you know accountability is THE BEST for the Dewey 24 Hour Readathon. Anyways, I’ve been doing FANTASTIC thus far, reading and listening to super short books. Since the last time I’ve updated I have eaten a pickle, a turkey sandwich piled with veggies (WHAT? WHO AM I RIGHT NOW) and drank a cup of coffee and some more tap water!

So, the books I completed:

Monsters On The March Derek The Ghost Book Cover

Scary School: Monsters On The March by Derek The Ghost – 256 pages – Basically this was a super adorable book about a school filled with humans and monsters, narrated by a ghost named Derek. There were lots of pictures and I thought it was a fab pre-Halloween read.

Legion Brandon Sanderson Book Cover

Legion by Brandon Sanderson – 88 pages  or 2 hours and 8 minutes – This novella is about this guy named Stephen Leeds, also known as Legion, who makes up these expert personalities that only he can see called Aspects who help him solve things. I liked the narration of this one. (FYI since the last update, I listened to the final 37 minutes of this).

Miracle's Boys Jacqueline Woodson Book Cover

Miracle’s Boys by Jacqueline Woodson – 160 pages – This is about 3 brothers, going through life a few years after the death of their mother. Ty’ree, the oldest, is legal guardian of main character Lafayette and ‘New’Charlie. Y’all, this is a heavy, beautiful, utterly recommended book.

Listened to: The last 37 minutes of Legion by Brandon Sanderson. THEN I downloaded Mistletoe & Margaritas by Shannon Stacey because I had it in my audible library and what the heck, it’s time to listen to Christmas themed books so I can stock up on Holiday reviews. Plus, novellas are the best for readathons. I have listened to Mistletoe & Margaritas for about an hour, well, it’ll be an hour by the time this is posted.

THIS BOOK RIGHT HERE WILL FULFILL THAT NEED. Also? If you are nervous about sexytimes, perhaps this is not the read for you.More DetailsAs it is December, I feel it is my duty to spread Christmas cheer by writing books for all the nearby holiday books. Y’all, I am so excited that I can buy Christmas books and not be ashamed because they are out of season. Now, Mistletoe & Margaritas by Shannon Stacey is an audiobook novella that I obtained for free on Audible because they were doing a Christmas in July promotion where members got to choose a free Christmas-themed listen. Obviously, I went for Mistletoe & Margaritas because hello, CUTE cover and omgADORBS romance! Plus, it was a super low risk way to try out Shannon Stacey, an author I’ve been more than curious about. Y’all, this was an awesome listen during the Dewey 24 Hour Marathon! […]
