Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon - Wednesday (#WWReadathon)

My Day

Having taken part in the last two read-a-thons I thought it would be kinda fun to keep track of what I've been up to during the day. That way I can see what I'm reading along with what was going on, which I'd otherwise forget.

I spent most of this morning in a hospital waiting room which gave me some handy reading time. My Mum is undergoing treatment for lymphoedema which means going to the hospital on alternate days for a few weeks for massage and compression bandaging. This meant I had some time to kill so after tracking down the coffee (which required many many directions after repeatedly getting lost) I hung out and got some reading done.

After getting back this afternoon, I just chilled out with my book and entered the challenges as they came up. Basically a pretty awesome start!

The Books

I got started this morning on page 202 and amazed myself by being done by lunchtime! I discovered reading this series in public is a bad idea as random fits of giggles get you some seriously weird looks. But what are you supposed to do when faced with lines like:

"I'm as nervous as a nun at a porn convention."

All in all this was awesome and the ending was just jaw-dropping.

After the OMG! ending to the last book I was really happy I'd waited till this one was released before reading it. I'm about 290-something pages into this at the moment and it's looking to be an epic end to an awesome series. I'm loving every page and I can't wait to see what happens next and how everything ends up. Plus lots of Giguhl!


All challenges run for 24 hours this round which is great for me as the times are always in EST, and that's about 5 hours behind me so the new time span gives me a lot of flexibility. Today's challenges were:
