Winter's Respite Readathon! 17Jan-23Jan

Well I have found another read-a-thon!  I'm so excited!  I love read-a-thons!  It's being hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict <---That's the starting line post!

I have made my very hopeful list of books I intend to read, and as I only found out about this at 2 am this morning, I'm already behind.

Here is my list:

-Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
-Percy Jackson and the Olympians - The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
-The Woman in Red by Eileen Goudge (finishing it)
-Room by Emma Donoghue

Short list, I know, but sort of realistic for me.  I might actually complete them all!  I do have to do other things though, like go to class and clean and stuff.  But I'll try!

Good luck to everyone, hope you have fun!

Potter-Thon Update! (And review)

It is already the 19th of January, and I have only just finished the first book in the Harry Potter series.  I had surgery last week, so that slowed me up.  Either way, I finally read a Harry Potter book!!  And I'll do a short review of it now, before I forget.

This book has been reviewed a zillion times, so my review may not hold any weight.  I will, however, still share my opinion.

It's no secret that J.K. Rowling hit the jackpot when the idea for Harry Potter took over her brain.  She has successfully crafted a series of stories that have enchanted all ages for over a decade.  I can now include myself in this group!  Of course I have already seen all the movies, but as it is with most movies made from books, the written word prevails.

J.K.'s words are creative, humorous, and full of emotion.  She expertly describes the world from her mind so that all who read can experience it for themselves.

I finally started reading the book for a reading challenge over at Pure Imagination, but will finish the series because of J.K Rowling's fantastic writing.  She made me care about the characters, and I must see then through to the end.

To all who haven't read Harry Potter, (however few that may be), get to it!  You really are missing out.

More updates for the Potter-Thon soon, as I'm starting The Chamber of Secrets in a few minutes!

Yesterday marked the beginning of the Potter-Thon over at Pure Imagination !!

I couldn't start yesterday; I couldn't get to the bookstore to buy any of the books. :(   I know, I know, it's crazy not to own the Harry Potter books.  Not even one!  So today I'm off to the store to buy them and commence with the reading!

I'm so excited!  I've only been waiting a million years to start reading them.  I guess I figured that I'd wait until I saw all the movies, but there's only the last part left to see.....

Anyhoo, I'll try to update every week, probably on Sundays, of where I am, how I feel about what I've read, and see what you all are reading!

Now get reading!
