As the Read-a-thon winds down I'd like to wrap up my reads ;)

After putting my Kindle away, I picked up The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones. I have managed to read 165 pages of this book so far...

So in Total...

1) The Abandoned - 73 pages
2) The Restorer - 377 pages
3) The Kingdom - 47 pages
4) The Faerie Path - 165 pages

That's an awesome 662 pages read!!

A huge thank you to the organiser of this Read-a-thon! I had a blast.


It's officially just past the halfway mark!! Time seems to have flown by :)

Thank you to Lexi and Aneeqah for stopping by to show your support, and to Jen over at At Random for the tweet :)

I didn't get very far into The Kingdom ( only read about 47 pages ) when I needed an extra rest. I even think my Kindle silently thanked me!

Anyway, it was 1am my time, which meant I'd already been awake for close to 19 hours and my body was begging for a rest. So I closed my eyes for what felt like a second and here I am, 2 hours later, still feeling like I have goldfish eye syndrome but more relaxed. I think I'm going to put the Kindle away for a while and pick up a good ol' fashioned paperback for a few hours!


I decided to take a little break from reading to post a quick update. I'll just keep updating my progress in this post as I continue...

So we're somewhere in hour 8 of the thon and I've managed to read The Abandoned by Amanda Stevens ( 73 pages ). this book is the prequel to the series and is an exclusive eBook. Sticking to my original plan of reading The Graveyard Queen series I then moved on to The Restorer ( 377 pages ), and boy am I glad I started reading this series !!  The story is not as easy-breezing as the YA novels I'm used to reading but I'm loving every minute of the haunting thrill-ride Ms. Stevens has created. I've found myself on more than one occasion looking over my shoulder and I almost wish night hadn't fallen so quickly as I prepare to jump into another eery story filled with ghosts, mystery  and romance :)

My eyes feel like they've taken a beating and I think I'm starting to get goldfish eye syndrome from staring at my Kindle for too long. I'm going to take a quick break and then I'll begin The Kingdom :)

Chat soon


Yay! It's finally read-a-thon time :)

First things first...time for a minichallenge.

The Introductory Meme is hosted by Dewey's Read-a-thon and is as the name suggests, an introductory questionaire so that readers can get to know me a little better .

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?

And here are my answers:

1) Sunny Durban, South Africa
2) Well I've decided to start off reading The Graveyard Queen series by Amanda Stevens, so I'm really looking forward to reading it :)
3) There is currently a cinnamon and apple crunch baking in the oven. The smell is divine!!
4) I work in the field of finance by day and I write books by night! I'm currently working on the last two books in my trilogy. Tomorrow I'm dedicating the entire day to writing.
5) This is my first read-a-thon.

Okay, so now you know a little more about me and my plans for the read-a-thon. I'll be updating my blog as the feeling takes me, but right now I'm off to read! Enjoy!!

The weekend is finally upon us and it is going to be a busy one.
Saturday marks my very first read-a-thon as I join in Dewey’s 24 hour Read-a-Thon.
I don’t have much of a game plan as to what I’m going to read, but I think getting stuck into a series would be the best way to go. I tend to dwell on characters and stories long after I’ve finished reading a book, so by reading a series my mind will stay on one path. With the release of the third book in The Graveyard Queen series being next week, this is the series I’ve chosen to start my read-a-thon with.


I was lucky enough to get a copy of ‘The Prophet’ from HarlequinMira via Netgalley, and I’ve just purchased copies of the first two books in the series. YAY!! I guess I’ll just wing it from there and see where my Kindle takes me.

I’ve decided to make this weekend one filled with ‘thons’. So straight after the read-a-thon I’ll spend Sunday doing my very own write-a-thon!!
