And here are my reading goals for the read-a-thon (though I'm not 100% sure which order I'll choose):

Demons (Seers, # 2) by Heather Frost
Alienated (Alientated, # 1) by Melissa Landers
Origin (Lux, # 4) by Jennifer L Armentrout
Inhuman (Fetch, # 1) by Kat Falls

Wrap Up I ended up re-reading Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, # 4) by Richelle Mead during the read-a-thon (by the skin of my teeth). That wasn't really part of my goals, but it just sort of happened. And I rolled with it. I also made it through 45% of Origin (Lux, # 4) by Jennifer L Armentrout. Hope to finish that one before the end of the week though it won't count for the read-a-thon.

Also, I did participate in every challenge this year. Fun stuff. Looking forward to next year.


  1. I love your reading list and really hope Alienated is good! Good luck!

  2. Wish you luck. I will be following the conversations but not going to participate. (Midterms)

  3. Looks like you have some good reads lined up :) Good luck and happy reading :)

  4. Thanks Kimba! I'm looking forward to getting into that one, but since the publication date is so far out that will probably be the last one I get to. Love Fraterfest!

  5. Ah...I remember those days! :) At least you can kind of follow along! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. You have a great line-up of books. I am excited that you are reading Alienated. I have been thinking about reading it (I like the cover). :)

  7. Thanks Pamela! I'm slow going on my goals so far, but sometimes that just happens. Alienated will be the last one I get to since the publication date isn't until 2014. Thanks for stopping by!
