Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Can y'all believe half of the year is basically gone already? Cuz I sure can't. But what better way to keep ourselves on top of our reading goals than with an RAT :)

Duration: June 23rd - 29th, 2013 (midnight to midnight)

Goals are whatever you choose (even no goal at all will work!). All discussion can be done below.

Good luck!

Cee | 141 comments I'm actually ten books ahead of my Goodreads goal at the moment, but I'm trying to get ahead a bit more so I don't have to worry about reading during the next semester.

Books I'll try to finish:

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli
Rise by Anna Carey
