Mini Challenges:
The Reader Bee:


Q: What is your most anticipated book for 2012?

A: Oh, that's a toughie. My most anticipated book? I would say The Evolution of Mara Dyer:
The ending of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was such a cliffhanger! I'm dying to know what happened. What this whole series is about specifically is still a mystery to me. And I'm such a predictor-face (or so my hubby tells me)

Other books I'm looking forward to: anything by Kristen Ashley. She's so addicting. Secondly, Checkmate by R.L. Mathewson because I love the humor in this series; she's also very similar to Kristen Ashley's style of writing. And lastly, How to Drive a Dragon Crazy by by G.A. Aiken. I've been waiting for Izzy and Eibhear's book for...ev...er.

Magnet4Books: {Completed}

Experience:
Ugh. Wow. I didn't get as many books completed as I hoped I would. This is just average for me. Some book choices slowed me down as they weren't riveting enough for me to fly through. Also, my son broke out with contact dermatitis all over his face, ears, and arms. No fever, no sickness, just an allergic skin reaction. So that slowed me down a bit. Overall, at least I read an average number of books rather than read less than average during this read-a-thon. I'm glad I participated, it was fun reading other bloggers' progresses :0)

Let me know how you did on your goals! Did you do better/worse than you expected? How were the mini-challenges? Make sure you link back to your final update so I can comment back :0)

I still need to read the first Dyer book. That's a lot of pages read so far! I've head really good things about Jennifer Echols books. I hope you're enjoying Such a Rush!

The Unbecoming of Maya Deyer is *still* on my TBR list. I know, I know. Everyone loves it so I need to get to it.

Looks like you've had a successful read-a-thon! Good work!
