Keeping Faith is what I will be reading I really need to break out of YA lol

Mom2triplets04 | 36 comments I don't think I ever finished a book in one day unless it was a novella. Can we count something that we already started but want to finish? I'm in the middle of a few books. Can we finish it on Monday and count it or does it have to be from page 1?


message 3: by Mom2triplets04 (new)

Mom2triplets04 | 36 comments Okay I decided to not to cheat and start from page 1 so I've come up with a TBR for each category. Hope this won't be an epic fail.

For mature Monday I chose
A Beautiful Wedding (Beautiful, #2.5) by Jamie McGuire

Emily (embuhleeliest) Eight hours behind schedule, but I finished my Monday book, which was "Night" by Elie Wiesel. Just.. wow. I have no words for this book.

Mom2triplets04 | 36 comments I didn't finish it in one sitting but did finish it this morning. Girl, stolen by April Henry complete. Yeah me!


message 15: by Paula (new)

Paula Patterson I have selected shorter books for this readathon. I struggled through Ponder Heart by Eudora Welty yesterday. It felt like it was about 600 pages. One of those books that seems to go on and on. Not my favorite by any means.

I read and finished Winner Take Nothing which was a collection of Hemingway's short stories. It was a very intersting read, because of the way he portrays people.

I struggled reading fangirl. I wound up not liking the book. I had to skip the simon parts to just finish the book. It's one of the books that I didn't like by Rainbow Rowell as I have read them all.

Mom2triplets04 | 36 comments Try picking smaller books. I cannot read a 300 page book in one day at all. I even struggle with a 200 page one.
