Back to School Read-A-Thon Finale

Total Books Read: 1
Total Pages Read: 1483

Yesterday was the last day of the read-a-thon hosted by Katie's Blog.

I feel pretty happy with what I've accomplished. I managed to finish one book and start on the other three. I also might have found a new favorite book: Sweet Evil. I was a little hesitant to pick up Sweet Evil because it could have easily turned into a cliche and predictable good girl meets and falls in love with the bad boy + she's an angel and he's a demon omg forbidden love! However, I'm at page 163 right now and so far the story is very original and not really a cliche.

I'm only on page twenty of Flirting In Italian, but it starts off with the main character finding a painting of a girl who looks just like her. I am a sucker for art references in books so I'm excited to read more now.

A Place Where Sunflowers Grow is such a beautifully illustrated and written children's book. I love picking it up and just staring at the illustrations. It is also very good with how the story deals with the subject of the Japanese American Internment Camps.

And as for Colibri, I wrote a review on this blog. If you're interested it should be a post or two below this entry.


  1. Great jobb! Isn't it awesome that these challenges introduce new books that become our favorites?

    1. It is awesome! That's one of my favorite part of these challenges. I finished reading Sweet Evil a couple of days ago and it has easily become one of my favorite books now. Hopefully the sequel is just as good. :)

    2. Ooh...maybe I'll check it out too!
