This is the first time I was able to do that, Ann, so I know you can, too. Just keep participating, and it will happen!

Nadine | 264 comments My books:
I feel like leaving a bit more here than just the numbers of pages read so here are some thoughts about the books I read during the readathon.
1) Variant by Robison Wells
Good book, a bit surprising at times to me, but maybe I just didn't read the description that clearly, but I really love the fact that I had no idea! The suspense was great! This one was suggested by goodreads in the recommendations and I was really amazed, it was a good suggestion. But it is one of the books you should read combined with the sequel (which will only come out in a year or so as Variant is a quite recent release. I like trilogies, but I think at least the first book should "stand alone" on a bit more steady feet ;-). Maybe I am just a lil pissed to have to wait so long for the sequel, there was quite a cliffhanger at the end.
2) Saeculum by Ursula Poznanski (496 pages, book finished)
Great book. I loved Erebos by the same author, this one was a bit more predictable, but it was very catchy and the pages flew by. I am not sure when or if either of the books will be available in English. The author is from Austria and I read them in German.
3) Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder (317 pages)
I am STILL not finished. I enjoyed part one and now after quite a while picked up the sequel, it is ok, but not great. I rarely feel the "need" to keep on reading, usually I finish books within a few days, this one I am reading for a week now! I am determined to finish it today though.
4) Candor by Pam Bachorz (249 pages, book finished)
After the first goodreads recommendation was so successful I went back and had another look. I did have a sample for this suggestion on my kindle and started reading. It sounded good so I got the full book. It was a good read, although HERE I wish for a sequel! I do like not quite so happy endings but here I wished for a lil more "happiness". I liked the humor and the light language.
5) The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (83 pages)
I am not sure yet what to think of this. I am constantly between loving it and wondering why I am reading it.
I also got some ideas of what to read next during this readathon so thanks. I think the lists of our fav books of the years are a great source to find some more treasures and I will surely go back there and have a closer look.

Finished:
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - 76 pages (Challenge #3)

In progress:
The Paris Wife - 72 pgs
Voyager - 36 pgs
Decline and Fall - 80 pgs
On Canaan's Side - 8 pgs

Day 5/6 total: 272 pgs

Way to go, Nadine! I think we'll let you have that 2-page cheat past midnight:) I still have 18 hours left, so I hope to add a bit more to my final total.

Nadine | 264 comments 1) Variant by Robison Wells (356 pages, book finished)
2) Saeculum by Ursula Poznanski (496 pages, book finished)
3) Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder (317 pages)
4) Candor by Pam Bachorz (249 pages, book finished)
5) The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (83 pages)

1.501 pages!!!
Haha, I cheated a lil. At midnight I was at 1.498 pages, but I refused to stop so I read a lil more than "one week". 3 pages past midnight. ;-) I just couldn't stop 2 pages before my big goal of 1.500 pages!
So I am very happy with my readathon. Again I got totally sidetracked from my plans and I didn't get to read much for those wonderful mini-challenge tasks. But I really love them and they brought me "Variant", which was a very catchy read. (The recommendations feature by Goodreads)

But that's the "downside" of the read-a-thon. I minimize my "to be read pile" a good deal in that week but get PLENTY of ideas what books to buy ;-)

Nancy H | 637 comments Nadine wrote: "I think I have to hunt down Tisha as well, that sounds really compelling :-)."

It is REALLY good. I read the original hardback that I got at a library book sale, but it is also out in paperback. I think you will like it. I had to almost stop a couple of times, because I have an adopted son who is native American from that part of Canada, and I got so angry at the treatment of the natives by the whites that I almost had to stop reading. But I'm glad I kept going because it had a great ending!

Nadine | 264 comments Hm, I am not finished yet. I read Poison Study about a year ago and enjoyed it, but not enough to read the sequels. In the meantime I read Inside out and Ouside in by the same author, which I liked AND I have to confess I had a crush on Valek in book 1 ;-). So I wanted to read more about him. Well he hasn't showed up after 50 % of the book. :-(
The story is ok, I like the new settings and people a lot, but somehow I am not captivated by the story. Poison Study had much more of a "must read more!" feeling about it. I want to finish it within the readathon so I will let you know about my final verdict. :-)

Amber I am officially making zero progress in this month's RAT. My birthday kicked off the weekend, so Saturday and Sunday were out. And now with Thanksgiving tomorrow and training at work, I have only made it through 100 pages in the last 4 days. I'm very disappointed with myself!

Nadine | 264 comments @ Ann: I was one of those who enjoyed Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children during the last read-a-thon (I was inspired there as well as some people sounded really intrigued .) I got it as an ebook though which wasn't the greatest idea since I think the pictures have a better appeal in a print book. I found the first half a bit boring, but then I totally fell for the book, so I think the best bits are yet to come for you :-).

Margie - I think I am really going to enjoy 'Tisha' because we just went to Alaska this summer and what I have read so far intrigues me since we went to White Horse and the Yukon and several other places in that area. We didn't get to Chicken, though, and now I wish we would have. I am sure I am going to like reading about it. I'm so glad you had it on your 'Best' list because I have been wanting to read it and this gives me the perfect opportunity.
