Summer Wrap-Up Read-a-thon Day 7

Hi everyone! I've started a new Read-a-thon early Saturday morning!!!
I was so wrapped-up in starting my reading that I completely forgot to post my goal post, lol, so sorry!!!

The "Summer Wrap-Up Read-a-thon" is being hosted by
Jude of In Between and Jennifer of Some Like It Paranormal...
You can find all of the read-a-thon details here!

My goals are to read:
- (finish reading) Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry (YA)
- (finish reading) Partials by Dan Wells (YA)
Aldo's Fantastical Movie Palace by Jonathan Friesen (MG)
The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver (MG)
Shadows (Lux #0.5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout (YA)
Kiss of Steel (London Steampunk #1)by Bec McMaster (Adult)

I'm pretty sure that I won't be reading all of these, but if I can at least finish what I started and read two or three more from this list, I'll continue to stay ahead of my overall reading goal :) 

I will be updating this post and adding in my progress as the week goes by!

I'm off to a slow start. I was hoping to not only have been almost done with one or both of these by now, but to have also been able to comment on a few fellow participants by now too. SO sorry! 
I hope to catch up and rectify this by Sunday night ;) 
Hope everyone is having a great reading time!!!

I am SO happy to have been able to finish reading two books today! I have been lacking in time and energy this week - that is not suppose to happen during a read-a-thon, lol! BOTH books were amazing reads! I am in LOVE with everything about The Spindlers, and I cannot wait to share my review for it next week!
I hope that everyone is feeling pretty accomplished and are enjoying their reads too! Hope to visit some more of the participating blogs and such tomorrow :)
