My "Once Upon a Read-a-thon" Day 2 Update!

The "Once Upon a Read-a-thon" has begun!!! 
{See below for my daily updates!}

hosted by Pure ImaginationReading 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 read today: 2 
Books read: A Pug's Tale by Alison Pace and finished reading Insignia!!!
My thoughts so far... 
Lately I have a hard time just sticking with one book, lol! They all sound so good, I want a sneak peek - so I just keep picking up books thinking I'll read a chapter or two... this is obviously not the time to start doing that ;) 
I read A Pug's Tale started very early this morning, paused for a wonderful afternoon with family, finished it at dinner! As soon as kiddos were asleep, I dove right back into Insignia and just finished it! WoW!!!... 
And while I decide whether or not I should jump back into Throne of Glass or start on the Goddess Test, I'm going to take a quick shower, hee hee! 
Hope everyone is getting far and having fun reading too! I hope to catch up on a few blogs in the morning! xo

Number of books I read today: 2 1/4
Books read: 29 by Adena Halpern and finished Throne of Glass!!! 
My thoughts... 
I just finished reading Throne of Glass! and now I don't know what to read next, lol! Goddess Test? or something that is not on my list, maybe a novella or a few short stories... I need a break, lol... time to shower and decide ;) 
Hope everyone is doing well! Looking forward to seeing some updates in the morning!
