September 2014 Read-A-Thons Update Post (Tackle Your TBR) (1)

Tackle Your TBR is a read-a-thon being hosted by Wishful Endings (direct to read-a-thon post). This is going to my daily update post for the first part of the read-a-thon, instead of the daily separate posts I do for things like Bout of Books, just because I don't think I'm going to get that level of reading done.

Monday, September 8th:
Number of books Read Today: 1
Pages Read Today: 279
The Merciless by Danielle Vega (started and finished - 279 pages)

I was really in the mood for horror, especially after doing research for that RIP read-a-thon thing (my post about it here), and this was much better then I expected. I think I kind of pre-judged it based on the bright pink cover, but I do love the design. And the contents was pretty awesome, too, I gave it 4/5 stars.

Tuesday, September 9th:
Number of Books Read Today: 0
Total Number of Books: 1

Total Number of Pages: 354
The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson #1) by Rick Riordan (started - 75 pages)

I decided to start rereading The Lightning Thief. I didn't feel good all day - so I finally got to read stuff just before bed, and then passed out.

Wednesday, September 10th:
Number of Books Read Today: 0
Total Number of Books: 1
Pages Read Today: 106
Total Number of Pages: 460
Tinder by Sally Gardner (started - 106 pages)

I think not feeling so well, therefore not being able to focus very well, had definitely thrown me into a bit of a reading slump. I'm going to try and read more tomorrow, though, and not get completely distracted.

Thursday, September 11th:

Total Number of Pages: 918
Tinder by Sally Garner (finished - 150 pages)
Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians (Alcatraz #1) by Brandon Sanderson (started and finished - 308 pages).

Today was definitely a pretty good reading day. I got my bind-up of Alcatraz in the mail today and decided to give the first book a short and accidentally finished it. Sanderson hangover cured? Maybe? Anyway - I cured the page count for that first book from the separate book instead of my bind-up, it equals the same stuff read, anyway, and it was some great books. Seriously - a ton of fun to read, totally ridiculous, and very original.

Friday, September 12th:
Number of Books Read Today: 1
Total Number of Books: 4

Total Number of Pages: 1,366
The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson #1) by Rick Riordan (finished - 300 pages)
The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson #2) by Rick Riordan (started - 148 pages)

Ah - rereading Percy Jackson. I'd forgotten a lot, or hadn't thought about some of the campers/characters in a long time. I miss them, for multiple reasons, but it's fun to be back. I don't think I'll marathon all five in a row, I also want to reread 1-4 of Heroes of Olympus before October 7th, too. It's going to be fun, I think, and I want everything fresh in my mind.

I hope you all had great days, I am feeling a bit better then I have been, I was starting to feel a bit better yesterday, too. If you're participating / if you're just reading - link me to your update post / blog.

The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson #2) by Rick Riordan (finished - 140 pages)
The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson #3) by Rick Riordan (started and finished - 320 pages)

I - whatever, it was a weird day. Anyway, obviously I really, really loved these books. They're a reread and I'd forgotten so much in the three+ years it's been - seriously I'd forgotten so much.

Alright and now I'm going to start a part two for this Sepember read-a-thon thing - same set up, it'll probably be up Monday, and I'll link it here!


  1. The title of that Brandon Sanderson book cracks me up! I bet it was a great book. You did awesome yesterday!

    1. It was a fantastic book - completely ridiculous, but I loved every minute of it. And thank you! :)

    2. I'm glad it was good. I'll have to add it to my list... after the read-a-thon. ;) You are doing so well! Glad you're feeling better!

    3. That never ending TBR pile? Familiar with that. :)

      And thanks! I'm feeling way better.
