Sunathon Readathon Announcement and Updates (July 21-27)

Yay!  Another readathon!  I have been really in the mood to read lately so I think I will join in on this readathon. Here is the official post about this readathon.

This is a low-pressure readathon with daily book giveaways.  All you have to do to enter the giveaways is to follow Emma Loise on Twitter (@EmmaIsWriting) and retweet a picture of the book that she posts.  The readathon goes from July 21 to July 27 (Monday- Sunday).

Here is my TBR for this week:

  1. Finish reading Kingmaker, Kingbreaker by Karen Miller.  This is a compilation of The Innocent Mage and The Awakened Mage. I began reading this during vacation this week.  I am on page 230 of 875 currently.
  2.  Finish reading Threatened by Eliot Schrefer.  I also started this book last week.  I am currently on page 79 of 267.
This would mean I would read a total of 845 pages, an average of 120 pages a day.  If I finish these two books, I will begin some books that I have received for review from authors.  Updates on my reading progress will be located at the bottom of this post. 

  • I read pages 230 to 235 of Kingmaker, Kingbreaker for a total of 5 pages.
  • I read pages 79 to 97 of Threatened for a total of 18 pages.
Pages read: 23


  • I read pages 235 to 246 of Kingmaker, Kingbreaker for a total of 11 pages.
  • I read pages 97 to 132 of Threatened for a total of 35 pages.  I had to return this book to the library; I will not be completing this book this week.
  • I started and finished I Know My Daddy Loves Me by Scott A. Williams.  I received this middle grade book from the author for review and will be publishing my review on my blog on its release date (October 1, 2014).  I gave this book a 4/5 stars.  This book was a total of 115 pages.
Pages read: 161
Books started and completed: 1

  • I started and finished The Lost Boy, a graphic novel by Greg Ruth.  I gave this book a 3/5 stars.  A review will be coming soon on my blog.  This gave me a total of 190 pages read.
  • I started and finished a Middle Grade Nonfiction novel that I received for review from Edelweiss.  It is The Owner Manual for Driving Your Adolescent Brain  by JoAnn and Terrence Deak.  I gave this book a 5/5 stars.  I really enjoyed it.  There will be a review coming on my blog soon.  This gave me a total of 59 pages.

  • I continued reading Kingmaker, Kingbreaker.  Today, sadly, I only read from page 246 to page 248, for a total of... 2 pages!  I had a terrible headache today, so I was unable to read as much as planned. Oh well, that just means I get to allot twice as much time to reading tomorrow, right?
Pages read: 2


  • I started Death Note, Volume 5 and read from page 1 to page 77 for a total of 77 pages.  I plan to finish this book before I go to bed tonight.
Pages read: 77


  • Finished Death Note, Volume 5 for a total of 122 pages.  This volume was not quite as good as the rest of the series thus far, so I gave it a 4/5 star rating.
  • Read a 36 page sample of Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld.  Other than a few cuss words, the sample, which was the first 3 chapters of the book, was action packed and an excellent read.  I am looking forward to reading the full book that comes out later this year.
  • I started Castle Waiting, a graphic novel written and illustrated by Linda Medley.  I read the first 154 pages (out of 456).  It is a decent read so far.  I hope to finish this book on the last day of the readathon.
  • I continued Sleeping Beauty and the Beast by Melissa Lemon.  I started this book before the readathon.  It is a book that I received from the author for review.  It is a great book so far.  I read from page 133 to page 181 for a total of 48 pages.  I hope to finish the final 106 pages on the final day of the readathon.
Pages read: 360
Books finished today: 1

  • Continued and DNF Castle Waiting.  I read a total of 178 pages of this book before I DNF it.  I DNF it because it began to mock Jesus Christ.  Other than that, it was 3/5 stars up to that point.
  • I started 12 Titanic Lessons for Christians: Lessons to Motivate, Challenge, & Impower by Charles C. Hagan, Jr.  I read the first 45 pages.  It is really great so far!
Pages read: 223
