Once Upon A Time Read-a-thon Goals & Updates!

The "Once Upon a Read-a-thon" has begun!!! 

hosted by Pure Imagination, Reading Angel and
Candace's Book Blog
A big thank you to Lori, Angela and Candace for hosting :) 

The read-a-thon started early this morning and will end on the July 11th at midnight. 

I'm setting my goals up pretty high since there are quite a few books that I have been wanting to finish reading and dying to re-read because it has either been a very long time since I have read them or another book to the series is coming out really soon! And I have a rule -> all books that I keep must be re-read at some point AND when sequels come out, it only makes sense to read the books to refresh myself. (And yes, every time a Harry Potter book was released I would re-read them all! lol) 

The books I hope to read are
- Insignia by S.J. Kincaid (currently on page 116)
- Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (currently on page 84)
- Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz (currently on page 136)
- Goddess Test by Aimee Carter 
- Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter 
- A Pug's Tale by Alison Pace 
- 29 by Adena Halpern 

I will be updating this post before going to bed until the read-a-thon is over...  

Number of books I've read today:

My thoughts so far... 




  1. I just finished Insignia on Saturday and OMG I loved it! It was so much fun. I'm going to have to find time to write my review during the read a thon. Anyway, good luck with your pile. I hope you get lots read!

  2. Great books....I've had Witches of East end since I got it for Christmas but haven't had time to read it...and then I started seeing mixed reviews. I'll be curious to see what you think of it!

  3. You've got some really great looking books in that pile!! Insignia looks amazing, and so does Throne of Glass! I've heard fabulous things about both, so I hope that you end up enjoying both. =)

    I also have very ambitious goals for this readathon! I hope that you reach your goals, and also have a blast during the readathon!

    Good luck!

  4. Good luck!!! One of these times I'll be able to read a bunch of books like that in a short time period :)

  5. Throne of Glass looks like such a great, action-packed read. I hope you love it, can't wait to read a review.

    Good luck and happy reading!

  6. Oooh, Good luck! "Witches of East End" looks fantastic. I actually have that but haven't gotten to it yet.

    Have Fun!

  7. Oooh ... the Goddess books! I hope you like them! They're some of my favourites. :)

    Good luck with the readathon!

  8. The Goddess Test was a really good read! Haven't read the second one yet. Will look forward to hearing your thoughts about them! Happy reading! xo
