Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3605 comments Just participated in the Dewey's, my first ever readathon, so why not do this one this coming weekend XD I love it how it's in our own time zones, because I have nothing on Saturday, and no stress from exams as I'll be on my break then!

I won't start at 12, because that killed me this weekend, and also I'm at my parents, so I'll just start reading when I wake up and go through until 12.

Books Finished: Without Merit
Pages Read: 327
TBR: Under the Blood-Red Sun by Graham Salisbury Without Merit by Colleen Hoover The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson Zoo by James Patterson

So yes, this readathon is now over for me, and I only managed to finish off 1 book on my TBR, but that is okay with me :) I've had a busy day.

I am. I've enjoyed that show since the very beginning.


message 35: by Shaunesay (new)

Shaunesay Yay Arrow! I am totally not caught up, I think I made it through season 1 and am into season 2, but I did like what I saw so far! John Barrowman was at our last Comic Con last year, it was so exciting to meet him! Stephen Amell was too, but we didn't make it to his booth, he was only here for awhile I think. Barrowman is just a force until himself! lol!


message 36: by Shaunesay (new)

Shaunesay Okay, I'm getting a late start to the day, but here's a question for you!

If you celebrate Halloween, tell me your favorite candy that you hand out, and what is the scariest book that you've read?

My favorite candy is Snickers bars, I could just eat them until I popped!

Scariest book... I think for me it was Pet Cemetary by Stephen King. My Mom didn't want me to read his books when I was a kid, so of course I snuck a few in anyway. Dead Zone I liked but it didn't scare me really, but Pet Cemetary, oh my, I really had second thoughts about letting my cat sleep with me!

My favorites - I can't decide which I like more- are reese's peanut butter cups and skittles. I usually put one of each in a little baggie.

I don't think I've been scared by a book but I have been by a movie!! I watched The Exorcist in high school and had to sleep with the light on for at least 2 nights in a row lol.

That's cool you got to meet Barrowman!!

Dannii Elle (danniiellereads) I have just finished The Haunting of Hill House and it has terrified me. A new favourite horror! For candy it has to be sour skittles!

Scariest book for me is Stephen King's the Stand. My favorite candy definitely is a York Peppermint Patty

He's one of my favorite characters! (But I am very partial to villains.)
