Read-a-thon Extravaganza

 The_Fault_in_Our_StarsIsis and Scatty had a read- a-thon going on from May 1st to May 7th. I found out about it on April 30th, and I was excited to read my life away. However, my life said “No, Marina you can not just spend your days reading books.” I was completely unprepared for the busy week that I have found myself in. I didn’t make any goals for the read-a- thon because I knew that I would not have a lot of time to read. Through out the week, I actually forgot that I challenged myself to participate in a read-a-thon. So, without any goals and without any page counts, my progress stands at that I finished “Lola and the Boy Next Door” by Stephanie Perkins, which left off on a book hang over. I wanted and needed the next book in the series, as I mentioned in a previous posted I hit up my friendly kindle store searching for the last book in the trilogy and was completely disappointed to find out that it doesn’t come out until August 2014. But, do not fear, as most book lovers and bloggers I found myself staring at an enormous to be read pile sitting on my shelf and an equal pile that has accumulated on my kindle. I ended up picking up “The Fault in Our Stars”, by John Green, which I have heard a lot about and wanted to read for quiet some time. Currently, I am bout 48 pages into “The Fault in Our Stars,” and I am absolutely in love with the characters and the world building that John Green provides for the reader. I can not wait for the movie to come out and be able to relive the story again.
