Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-thon Oct. 11-20

It's time for the third read-a-thon I'm participating in during October, the Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-thon hosted by My Shelf Confessions!  That's 10 days of read-a-thon people!

I have some serious work to complete my goals for the Seriously Series challenge, so I will be working on those for this read-a-thon.

Goals:

            • Aftermath - Ann Aguirre (307 pages)
            • Ironside - Holly Black (323 pages) - Dewey's goal
            • Endymion Spring - Matthew Skelton - Audiobook (10+ hours)
            • Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors - Molly Harper (337 pages) 
            • Something Deadly This Way Comes - Kim Harrison (245 pages) done!
            • Finish Pretty When She Dies - Rhiannon Frater (Starting at 48%) done!




Updates:

Day 1:  Listened to about an hour and a half of Endymion Spring, liking it so far!  Good, animated narrator.  Got through about 9% in Pretty When She Dies, which may only be about 18 pages, but I don't want to burn out before Dewey's tomorrow!

Day 3: So Dewey's was yesterday and I finished 3 books!  Not at all what I planned, but that's okay!  I finished Something Deadly, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle and The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. Today has been pretty slow on the reading, though I am almost 2 hours into Endymion Spring, and to 70% of Pretty When She Dies.

Day 5: I finished something! I finished Pretty When She Dies and really liked it, so I'll definitely be reading the rest of those.  I'm on track with listening to Endymion Spring, about 5 hours in and it's around 10 hours long, so that should be no problem.  Now what to start on next?  It's between Ironside and Aftermath.

Day 10 Final Wrap-Up: I have ended with about 1.5 hours left in Endymion Spring, and about 100 pages left in Ironside.  Not as far as I'd like to have gotten, but just taking part is fun, even if I don't make my goals!  See you next #WWReadathon!
