Here is my last, final update for the Read-A-Thon. I will also post my CHALLENGE after posting the books.
I LOVED this Read-A-Thon! I hope we do this again, and would LOVE to do it more than twice a year!
I will be doing a Read-A-Thon for ONE day through Goodreads. I need to choose my date and sign it up.
I really am going to miss this, all the comradeship with the other Bloggers, too. This was SO enjoyable. I really look forward to the next one!
I WILL be posting actual'Reviews' of all the books I have read. I am just putting a little synopsis of what each book was about in one sentence.
Here is what I read today with photos. The first book I started last night and finished early this morning.
"Safe From the Past" by Patricia Miller Mauro. Very good book about a woman who grew up very poor and was determined to get her Bachelor's Degree so she would NEVER have to rely on the things her mother had to do in order to keep a roof over her and her sister's head while they were growing up. Very inspiring.
Life is Not a Candy Store, It's the Way to the Candy Store by Tal Yanal
quick synopsis: A Spiritual Guide to the Road of Life for Teens
Great book for the younger or NEW teen before the 'Teen Angst' sets in! (From experience!)
Tim Gunn in Conversation with Budd Mishkin by Tim Gunn. This was the FIRST Audio Book I have ever 'listened to'! VERY good. I LOVE Tim Gunn! Make it Work!
And, last, but not least, a book I won from the Freedom Hop Giveaway!
"A Secret in the Attic" by Samantha Jillian Bayarr. Yes, the Kindle Edition. Very good book. Very interesting.
You will all have to watch for my reviews of these books over the coming week.
The CHALLENGE: Today is my mini-challenge for the Once Upon a Time Read-a-thon!! I'm hoping to make this one easy for you. Anyone who talks to me on Twitter knows that I simply live for book recommendations and getting someone to read a book I recommend is awesome. Even better though, is having that someone turn around and tell me how much they loved it. Because I'm such a fan of book recommendations, I want you to recommend books to me. I want you to recommend 2 books to me.
(This challenge is being sponsored by: http://www.basicallyamazing.blogspot.com Please visit her Blog!!!
The first is any book of your choice. Pick any book you want and tell me and the world why it should be read and loved.
The book I did NOT get to read, which I am dying to read is "Never Knowing" by Chevy Stevens-The Best Selling Author of Still Missing. The cover photo of the book is below.
I did start the first few pages. It is 410 pages. I don't know if I can get it read by Friday, tomorrow? This size book usually takes me 2 days. Although, I can tell you the first few pages just sucked me right in. She is in her Therapist's office, as this is how this story is told, through sessions at her Therapists. She is talking about how she found her birth mother and her birth mother was 'afraid' of her. She doesn't understand why.
On the back of the book, it says: A breathtaking and complex novel about one woman's search to find her birth mother - only to discover the terror and horror in which she was conceived - and that her birth father is still on the loose.
Inside the front cover: When her birth mother rejects her, she discovers her biological father is an infamous killer who's been hunting women every summer for more than 30 years. Soon she realizes the only thing worse than finding out your father is a killer is him finding out about you.
This books sounds SOOO good! Who thinks I should buy and read the ebook so I can raffle 'this' book off? This book is an ARC. What I wrote above about inside the front cover may be al little different than the published version, as well as the back cover. Tell me in COMMENTS!!!
