22 on 22 Read-a-thon!

Lookit what I found? My friend Michelle tipped me off to this read-a-thon! I'm a day late to join, but I just cannot resist a good "thon so here I go! :)

 My book stack is pretty much my list from my Post on Monday!

10/23/12 and 10/24
Book: Coraline by Neil Gaiman (FINISHED) Fang Girl
Finished: 1 (Coraline)
Notes: With work and my husband having the brilliant idea to stay up and watch Night of the Living Dead 2 (which is horrible in a "i'm not sure if this is brilliant or the worst movie ever" kind of way) I didn't get to finish Coraline (10/23)

Day 3 Mini Challenge:

"Today’s challenge is all about showing off the top book you are waiting on!
Please be sure to include a cover, summary, and the reason you are waiting on it in your challenge post."

Mine is

Art student and monster's apprentice Karou finally has the answers she has always sought. She knows who she is--and what she is. But with this knowledge comes another truth she would give anything to undo: She loved the enemy and he betrayed her, and a world suffered for it.

In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Karou must decide how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, secrets and impossible choices, Days of Blood & Starlight finds Karou and Akiva on opposing sides as an age-old war stirs back to life.

While Karou and her allies build a monstrous army in a land of dust and starlight, Akiva wages a different sort of battle: a battle for redemption. For hope.

But can any hope be salvaged from the ashes of their broken dream?

My Reason:
I was enraptured by the first book! I loved the world that was built and the characters are just wow! I
really cannot wait to read this one!

Book: Fang Girl

Finished: 1 (Coraline)



  1. Thanks for joining us in celebrating Bianca's Birthday! I hope you have some great books picked out to carry you through the whole week. :)

  2. I knew you would join in on this. ;O) We just can't resist, can we? Good luck getting some reading done!

  3. Another person is also waiting on Days of Blood and Starlight. I guess since the first book was so good I should actually pull it off my shelf and read it! :)

  4. I have not read Daughter of Smoke and Bone but I really like that cover for the second one.

  5. Did you like Coraline? I haven't read anything by Neil Gaiman yet though have his books lying in my Kindle.

    Hey, we are waiting on the same book! Yay! :D


Thanks for visiting!
