Day 1 Thoughts: It’s been a long time since I was able to read a book in one sitting, but today I was able to do just that. Pretty Girl-13 was a me read. It had many of my favorite elements and I’m still in shock that I hadn’t read this one sooner. Between Shades of Gray is definitely promising and I’m looking forward to picking it back up tomorrow. Unfortunately Anna and the French Kiss and Of Metal and Wishes were my disappointments for the day. Since I haven’t read a lot of either of these books, I hope they pick up tomorrow.
Pages Read: Ask Me How I Got Here – 240 pages; The Dream Thieves – 67 pages
Bingo Squares Covered: Standalone
Day 1 Thoughts: I was also able to read a book in a single sitting! Granted, it was written in verse and only 240 pages long, but still, I’m right on schedule with my book-a-day goal. It’s only 10pm while I’m writing this so I do hope to get some more of The Dream Thieves read before the day is over. Very disappointed with myself for not getting to this book sooner!
