Wicked Valentine’s Read-A-Thon Goals & Updates

Wicked Valentine's Read-a-Thon

The #WWReadathon is back! But what is it about, you ask? The Wicked Valentine’s Read-A-Thon is a time when we all get together to dedicate the days of February 7-14 to as much reading as possible. You read as much as you can in order to get yourself a little further through that huge to-read pile! We know real life gets in the way and even if you can’t participate more than one day, you’re welcome to join in on the fun! In the meantime, Bex and April will be hosting book-related challenges where you can win some awesome prizes and have a Twitter party at the hashtag #WWReadathon!

My Goals

To read atleast 3 books (since I’m super busy organizing my sister’s engagement and a national conference both of which happen to be next week.)

and finish reading

Updates

Day 1: 2/7/2013

Book I read: Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1) by Katie McGarry

Pages read: 20% on Kindle (roughly 75 pages)

Day 2: 2/8/2013

The Dating game mini-challenge

 The idea is to choose two different book characters to go on a date. Although each character must be from two totally different books or series. Example: Edward Cullen (Twilight series) and Kaylee Cavanaugh (Soul Screamers series). Once you know who you are going to choose then your next step is to tell me where they will being going on the date. You are welcome to post a image of a certain place as well. Next, I need to know what they will be doing on their date and why you think both characters would make a great couple.

I’m thinking of sending Cooper from Tidal by Emily Snow and Echo from Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry on a surfing vacation in Hawaii. They would make a great couple because Cooper is just awesome and someone who can take Echo’s mind off her worries and will take her away from her dad and stepmom when she goes to Hawaii to take surfing lessons from Cooper.

Day 3: 2/9/2013

Book I read: The Difference Between You and Me by Madeleine George

Love that dress, meet my date Marcello from the River of Time series and we’ll be arriving in a limo.

Day 5: 2/11/2013

Book I read: Finished Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1) by Katie McGarry 

Pages read: 60% on Kindle (roughly 250 pages)

Total books read so far: 2

 Lines of Love

My challenge for you today should you choose to bandy words with me: Compile some Lines of Love to woo us, Or perhaps fill us with sadness, make our hearts bleed perhaps? Or nay give us a laugh that only comedic love can.

The challenge requirements, oh evil things that they are:

♥ In the current book you are reading flip to a random page

♥ Roll four dice, add each die’s number together, the total is your line number(aka line=sentence) [convenient website for dice rolling here]

♥ Make the line romantic in some way. (you don’t have to use the whole line, but at least half of it and whatever you add of your own can’t be more than half the total quote)

Book: The Difference Between You and Me by Madeleine George

Page: 153

Dice rolled – 1 + 1 + 4 + 3 = 9

Sentence: “He takes Esther’s hand in his.”

My take: “He” calls out her name. “Taking Esther’s hand in his”, he kisses it, barely there, a feather touch.

Total books read so far: 2

 

Day 7: 2/13/2013

  1. Pragya! We meet again 🙂

    How are you liking Pushing the Limits? I keep wanting to buy myself a copy but I still haven’t. Are you a fan of Katie McGarry, or is this the first book you’re reading by this author? I LOVE the cover of Dare You To, love it.
