Updated!! The Wonderfully Wicked Read-A-Thon! October 21-23rd

It's my first Read-A-Thon!
That's right!
I'm going to be reading as much as I can during these three days! 

Thanks to hosts: Bex @ Kindle Fever and April @ My Shelf Confessions!

And check back here for updates!

Please feel free to leave comments or advice! :) I'm not sure how I'll do, but it seems like an amazing challenge!

Challenge 1:

Make one sentence out of only book titles! 
We can't add or delete words but can use as many book titles as we want! Well, here's my silly little sentence. 

Wicked, Lovely Eve Matched Unearthly Jacob Silence Forever
Here are the books I used:

Love this game!!!

Challenge 2:
Guess The Character Challenge!

Challenge 3: 
Thanks to BookandLatte for this challenge!

What is your favorite horror or thriller movie based off of a book?
My answer: The one that kept me up late into the night, reading, putting the book down and picking it back up was American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis. 
I saw the movie and knew this would stay with me forever. I still get goosebumps. Creepy and horrible. 

10/22 - Reading Update:
Finished reading "Anna Dressed In Blood"/Kendare Blake
Started "The Truth About Forever"/Sarah Dessen

Challenge 4:
Thanks to The Book Monsters for this challenge!"
Anna Dressed In Blood" by Kendare Blake

The story in pictures (without the ending. Spoilers not wanted!)

Ghost Girl
A Haunted House
A ghostbuster and his friends

A Magic Knife

Some VooDoo
And a Beautiful Impossible Love

I loved Anna Dressed In Blood.
Pretty edgy/gorey for a YA book. It was awesome. Hope you get a chance to read it too!
Thanks so much!

Challenge 5: 
Thanks to My Shelf Confessions for this challenge!

In the event of a Zombie Apocalypse you are forced to take shelter with family and/or friends for a period of no less than 5 years. You have time to pack some supplies and some extra things to keep yourself entertained. However, since there will be many people sharing the same space, space will be limited and you are told you are only allowed to bring up to 5 books.
What books would you pack to sustain you? If you want to go a step further you can give a reason why you would choose the books you chose.
I'm going to be very honest here. I am very afraid of Zombies. I do have Zombie survival guides from a friend who knows and appreciates my deep fear of Zombies and is kind enough to help me plan ahead.

That said, of course NONE of my books I would bring are Zombie related.
I will probably be eaten.
But I will be well entertained until then.

My five are:
The Mermaids Singing by Lisa Carey
Dark Lover by J R Ward
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
Still Life With Woodpecker by Tom Robbins

Thanks for the fun!


  1. Woohoo! I totally wish I could participate in the Netgalley October one but geez, my schedule is packed this week... :(

  2. I've never done this before so it'll be quite the experience!! There's a Netgalley one in October too? Oh wow!
    I am actually really busy this weekend but I'm hoping to read a lot anyway. See you later! Alligator!!

  3. Wow reading that book in pictures makes me want to actually read it. Looks awesome!

  4. Oh no not zombies! We should practice with our crow bars and cricket bats. Gotta keep sharp!
    And love the Anna in pics. Now I really want to read it.
