Weekend Wrap-Up: My first reading challenge - Yummy books!

This weekend I participated in my first reading challenge (hosted by Mother Reader) - do I really need an excuse to read all weekend - nope - but now I know how much time I spend reading during a weekend. And since I have alot of awesome books to read I have a good reason to join the challenge! So here is my finish line post of what I've read.

Friday:
7:30-11:30 Kicked back with some Chardonnay and started Blood Feud by Alyxandra Harvey
Saturday:
9:30-11:30 After 2 cups of coffee was finally able to open my eyes and finish Blood Feud
11:30-12:30 Did some blog reading and twittering since I can't stay away from twitter!
12:30-2:30 Started on Siren by Tricia Rayburn (So good and spooky!)
2:30-4:30 Girl's gotta eat..and shop
4:30-5:30 More Siren time!
5:30-5:45 Little break to rest my heart from Siren
5:45-10   Back to Siren
Good Night!
Sunday:
9:30-12:30 3 cups of coffee this morning and I finished Siren so good! Now on to Wolf Flight by Vivian Arend - so good and short it was quickly consumed!
12:30-2:30 shower, web surfing, and food
2:30-3:00 trying to write reviews
3:00-6:30 Read and finished Into the Dark by Gena Showalter (Those warriors are hot!)
6:30 - met to write reviews but ended up having dinner and watching MTV movie awards (how'd the Parks & Rec dude ended up being host I just don't understand!)
Total Reading/Review Time: 21.5 (started at 7pm on Friday and ended at 7pm on Sunday)
So there's my weekend reading snapshot - are you guys big book consumers on the weekends?

The fact that you could give us a play by play "hourly" is so awesome.

Oh! Great job Heather! I'm such a slow reader, I probably would have been on the same page all weekend. LOL!

Was Blood Feud good? I like the cover!

Tanya said...

@Missie - Blood Feud was good - I missed reading from Lucy's perspective like in the first book but still liked the characters.

@Tanya - I think I get a don't talk to me look on my face so people know to stay away ;)

Ahhh I still have to read Siren!! (I originally typed Twitter, omg I'm just as obsessed as you are LMAO)

Haven't read anything by Vivian Arend yet. You must tell me if she's worth looking into further. And of course, Atlas was bangin hawt. Rawr.

So um. I'm expecting you to tell me you can go to Denver. You and I need to dominate RomCon. Buwahaha. And we also need to get dresses. I got an e-bay seller who's selling dresses for the Masquerade ball that are like 5 bucks. Win. TELL ME YOU CAN GO, SOON!!

Wow, I'm so impressed. This might be a good idea to journal my time so I don't spend too much time on the computer and not enough time reading.
