I'm aiming to post an update each day throughout the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon because I find them fun to look back over once it's all finished. I'll be including an update on my day (sometimes just about reading, other times about why I've not been reading), along with my thoughts on the books I've been reading and any challenge entries.
I was up late last night so managed to squeeze in a little reading between midnight and falling asleep, but this morning I had to run errands which meant I didn't get to sit down with a book until gone 2 pm.
Once I got the opportunity I curled up with some Cherry & Cinnamon tea in my favourite mug, some snacks and my book and I've barely moved since. I've had an awesome afternoon reading and I even managed to join in the Twitter party this evening. The only reason I'm not reading some more now is so I can watch Revenge which has just returned to the UK with season 2 :)
My copies of Under the Never Sky and Through the Ever Night also arrived today so I'm hoping to read them as soon as I can! I've heard awesome things about them and only put off buying them this long as the original UK cover for UtNS was pretty dire. The new ones are a vast improvement!
I've jumped straight into Frostbite and I'm loving it so far. The flashbacks are gone so the story is progressing much more smoothly. I'm about a third or so in and I can't wait to continue. The wintery setting is awesome (I'm definitely a winter girl) and I'm desperate to know why the Strigoi are getting closer, and what is going to happen with Rose's love life. Hold out for the forbidden Dimitri or try dating the super cute Mason?
Books read today: One and a third (ish)

The ChallengesToday's Scientific Discovery challenge is hosted by Racquel and Sharon @ The Book Barbies and you can still enter by clicking here. Their challenge is: "You have made a scientific discovery (who knew you were so good at science?!) on how to bring fictional characters to life. The problem? The method still isn't *perfect,* so you can only bring two people to life, and they must return to the land of fiction in 30 days. Who will you choose as your bestie and your love interest for that one splendid month? (Feel free to add pictures if you like, but they are not required.)"
Best friend: For a best friend I'd have to pick Evie from Paranormalcy. She is really fun and has awesome taste. Evie owns a pink taser, has unique fashion taste and is incredibly snarky. She's exactly the kind of girl I'd pick as a best friend as her whole normal girl in an abnormal world would lead to a ton of fun conversations...while shopping of course :)
Love interest: This is so hard! There are so many awesome guys in books that it took me ages to narrow it down to just one. In the end I had to go with Vincent Argeneau from A Bite to Remember. Vincent is gorgeous, funny and sweet and I've loved him since his first appeareance in the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series. He'd do anything for the people he cares about and is an all-around great guy :)
