Creeping into Hour 9 and it is 9:15pm here in the UK. Having had dinner, pottered about and managed to organise the rest of my night out I have finished my first book. The catch is I was already half way through at the beginning of the Thon. This may sound like a cheat but you know what, I was still reading! Why not!

Finished

I am more sure than ever now that I will be reading the rest of this series of books. Towards the end I was clutching to a pillow with tears in my eyes! But before I tell you any more I will save that for the review and leave you with this song.

Read-a-Thon Hour 5 – Just Begun

So it is Hour 5 of the Read-a-thon and I have only just started reading as I have been co-hosting for the past two hours and running to and fro catching up on errands prior to that like a crazy person. All settled in now.

Just Finishing

From Notting Hill with Love Actually, Love Actually, Notting Hill, London, Love, Romance, Chick Lit, Fiction, Reading, Books, Ali Harris, Little Brown Book Group, Sphere, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

Despite a rocky start I am actually starting to LOVE this book so I think if I am successful in finishing my next book it will be onto the next one in this series which is From Notting Hill to New York Actually by Ali McNamara.

About to Begin

The Christmas Surprise, Jenny Colgan, Fiction, Books, Reading, Chick Lit, Festive, Christmas, Winter, Little Brown Books UK, Sphere, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

I am sooooo excited about this book – I LOVE Jenny Colgan’s books and I LOVE Christmas!

Now for a little music . . .

For some reason I cannot stop listening to these two songs in particular. George Ezra’s album Wanted on Voyage is truly amazing and his voice just helps me read and tap my foot along too!

So the day before the Read-A-Thon and I am getting ready not only to read for as much of 24 Hours that I can but sort myself out and get ready for yet another week at work. But until that week actually begins books are on my mind.

I have been checking out other peoples book piles and ideas about what they will be doing to stay awake for as long as possible and get through the Read-A-Thon. Not only will I be co-hosting again this year but as I have the privilege of writing for the early hours of the Thon and getting into reading for the rest I amΒ ΓΌber excited. There are so many ways you can take part and keep in touch.

Check out the social networking for it – Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Website.

What’s on yourΒ reading list?

How will you stay awake?
