On My Shelf (25) Vlog

I finally got around to making a vlog. Huzzah!

Review - Groosham Grange by Anthony Horowitz

Thirteen-year-old David Eliot was a disappointment to his parents. But to be sent to Groosham Grange? Hidden away on a lonely island, Groosham Grange is a school that is unknown to the outside world. Pupils forced to sign their names in blood. An English teacher held together entirely with bandages. A soccer ball made of . . . well, you'd rather not know. What is the chilling secret hidden behind the headmaster's door? And why are students disappearing in the middle of the night? Suddenly, David has a lot more to worry about than pleasing his parents - like survival!

Time for another cover face-off!

On My Shelf (24)

On My Shelf highlights books I've acquired and read in the past week, as well as a little about what I'm writing, and other blog worthy news. I think it's pretty obvious where I got my inspiration for the feature from, but I will follow blog etiquette and link to Kristi (In My Mailbox @ The Story Siren), Sheila (It's Monday, What Are You Reading? @ Book Journey), and Kate (The Shelf Report @ The Neverending Shelf) anyway. ;)

#RDreadathon - Final Report

Here are my final read-a-thon stats.

Books Read:
  1. I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Shroeder
  2. Groosham Grange by Anthony Horowitz
Pages Read: 542

Best Book Read: That's a hard one. I only finished 2 books, and while they were both good, neither was spectacular. I guess I'll say Groosham Grange. It was more my thing than IHYYHM.

Worst Books Read: I've got nothing for this one. All the books I read were good.

Did you enjoy the read-a-thon? Yes. I had a lot of fun hosting it, and will probably do another one sometime. Definitely glad I decided to do this. :)

Read Dangerously Read-A-Thon - Finish Line

     FINISH LINE     

10 p.m. The Read Dangerously Read-A-Thon is officially over. Time to put down the books and write your report. How did you do?

Read Dangerously Read-A-Thon - Mini Challenge #6

It's time for the last mini challenge, so make this break count, because it's the very last one you'll get (not that big a deal though, since the read-a-thon ends at 10:00).

Read Dangerously Read-A-Thon - Mini Challenge #5

Okay everyone, break time. Put down whatever you're reading and pick up your camera, it's time for the fifth mini challenge.

#RDreadathon - Day 2 Report

Day 2 is done, so here are my updated read-a-thon stats. You can post your Day 2 report tonight or tomorrow morning.

Read Dangerously Read-A-Thon - Mini Challenge #3

Day 2 of the read-a-thon is well underway. How're you doing? Need a break? I hope so, because it's time for the first mini challenge of the day!
