Can I Read a Series in a Month? 2018 Challenge 
Runs the entire month of April!

Hi!  So I have been working on my series completion/progress lately and found this.  I tried it last year, and it fell apart miserably!  So lets try again!

I am not swearing into a specific series 100%.  I have a few options (one being the one I had hoped to do last year) that I am leaving myself open to.  The final factor will be a combination of  what fits best with another reading challenge I on Goodreads (UNO!) but also what grabs my interest and that I feel most like devouring. These are my options:

24 Hours #readathonbyzoe

So It is now midnight and I am starting with:
Renegades (Renegades, #1) 
I already read the first 3 chapters, so picking up at Chapter 4.  Will update this post a few times throughout the next 24 hours (and will wrap it up at the bottom once it is over and I get some sleep)  but most updates will be on twitter (@jljaina). Hope you are joining me in this endeavor!  Is anyone taking bets yet how long I will last?  I am running on a very small nap so bit nervous.... Might need one at some point during this.


So 7 hours into this and I recently had to sleep for a few hours.  My nap before this started was much shorter than I had hoped so sleep was soon needed again.

However I have made some reading progress too.  I am about 1/2 through Renegades and LOVING it.  Also started The Substitute by Marilyn Kaye for some easier reading on my eyes just before I fell asleep.  Now, I must get back to the books! 


Alright I meant to post sooner but I have just been THAT into my books.  I have finished the two listed above and am bouncing between 3 others right now.  Not sure I will finishe then as energy is rapidly draining but there are still 6 hours to go.  I might finish one, or just keep going reading a bit of each...I don't know.  Time will tell.  This is probably my last udate here until tomorrow when I will add the wrap-up.  Will probably do a couple more twitter updates though.  

Books Finished:
 Renegades (Renegades, #1)The Substitute by Marilyn KayeSaga, Vol. 7 (Saga, #7)

Made progress/Started:
The Goddess Test (Goddess Test, #1)The Cage (The Cage, #1)The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (Guide, #1)

Total Pages read: 967

Overall, I was very happy with this readathon, although starting at midnight is a pain!  I vote a noon-noon in your time zone next time. I don't nap well in the evening so basically I am up for over 35 hours. Way harsh on the eyes!  I had some great munchies (pretzels, BBQ Hawaiian meatballs, Nerds, donuts, grapes) and a sweet husband who just let me read (and got me the donuts!).
