  1. Pingback: Mondays With Megan-Bout of Books Day 1 and What Are You Reading | YA? Why Not?

  2. Those are great goals. I’m hoping to read five books this week. Hopefully including audiobooks and a graphic novel, I will be able to accomplish that. Good luck!!

  3. I want to read 45 Pounds. If You Find Me sounds really good too.

    My goal is to try to get caught up on the many books I have to read for review. I also need to write reviews…

    Good luck with the read-a-thon!

  4. ahhh Game! I need to read that book soon. I’m currently reading Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls!

  5. That’s disappointing that you didn’t like If You Find Me 😦 Your doing fantastic though, keep up the great work. Maybe I should start listening to audiobooks while I’m doing something, but my mind tends to wander when I’m doing other things 😦 Do you find this too? Do you have to sit and not be doing anything when your listening to your audio books?

    My BoB updates.

  6. I still gotta read Scarlet one of these days. Sounds like it’s good. I knew it was Little Red Riding hood, but I didn’t realize the wolf was in it too. Great job. Thanks for participating!
