Once Upon a Read-a-Thon Kickoff!

I had every intention of staying up til midnight to start the read-a-thon right on time.  I fell asleep at 11:30.  Oh well.  I am going to re-read Shiver and Linger and then Forever when it comes out tomorrow (all by Maggie Stiefvater).  And if I have time, The Giver by Lois Lowry, too.  I intend to do this read-a-thon while living my normal life of watching two young kids, cooking dinner, grocery shopping and helping a friend move.  It’s not a read-a-thon unless it’s challenging!

UPDATE: Mini-challenge! From IB Book Blogging

Mini Challenge Question 1:
What is your favorite type of myth (Greek, Roman, Egyptian etc)?

I love Greek mythology!  Rick Riordan talked about how family dysfunction and divorce is not a modern problem – just read Greek mythology.  I love that!

Mini Challenge Question 2:
What is your favorite book with some type of mythology in it?

Harry Potter by far!  She incorporates more mythology from different sources than any one person should be able to!

About Jessica

I love to read YA fantasy fiction and classic literature. I also like to write and what better to write about than my life? Because looking back makes me realize how funny my life was. Painful at the time, but hilariously funny now. I'm also a stay at home my with two young boys. My house is not as clean as it could be, but I don't really care. Books are an escape for a reason.
