Once Upon a Read-a-Thon Day 1: Goals & Challenges

July 8, 2013

I still have books to read, and thanks to another blogger who told me about Once Upon a Read-a-Thon, I signed up for another challenge. :-)

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon is hosted by 4 bloggers on 3 sites, Pure ImaginationCandace's Book Blog, & Reading Angels .It is a 3 day challenge from July 8th-July 10th.

My goal for this read-a-thon is to knock out 2 books. I've already started one, but I'm not that far into it.

Mini Challenge:
host by: Cover2CoverBlog

Which book you are most excited to read in the coming year? It can be already released or coming soon.

Which book would you re-read if you had the time and weren't so busy reading ALL of the other good things?

  If you could meet any fictional character who would it be and why?

 1. I'm really excited to read Allegiant by Veronica Roth, release date October 22nd 2013. I'm excited to see how it ends and what the answers are to the questions asked at the end of Insurgent.

2. Oh, goodness. There are a few. Right now, I would love to re-read either the Hunger Games Series or the Harry Potter Series. I usually like to re-read each of these every year, but I'm going to have to wait, I'm loving all the new books I've gotten lately.

3. I would have to say Hermione Granger from Harry Potter. She is smart, loves books, and she is a cat lover. She is one of the best characters in the series and even though she goes through so much, instead of being pushed down by the weight of everything, she pushes on and gets stronger.


  1. I haven't really payed attention to the release date for Allegiant before, so I just noticed that it's coming out three days after I turn eighteen. :)

    Good luck with your reading.

    Here's my goal: http://readingismytreasure.blogspot.com/2013/07/once-upon-readathon-goals.html

    1. Veronica Roth just released her tour dates as well. She starts the day it is released. :-) That will be a happy belated birthday.


  2. Good luck on your challenge! I've never done a reading challenge before.

    1. Thanks! This is only my second one. The first one was fun. It is fun setting a goal and shooting for it.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Ooh! Another Allegiant pick! I still have to finish book 2 :/
    Thanks for participating in the Cover2CoverBlog Mini Challenge! Good luck during the read-a-thon!

    1. I was wondering how popular Allegiant was going to be. :-) I kind of wish I held of on reading book 2, it feels like it's been forever!

      Thanks for hosting the challenge! Great questions. :-)


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a word, leave a line, I would love to hear what you have to say.
