  1. Checking in! No blogpost this time, I linked to Instagram, I'm a newbie at it, but trying it out! so far I have finished the Doctor Who audio Tsar Wars, and just finished reading Binti. So I'm not doing terrible! I know there's no way I will finish American Gods, it's just too hefty, but I'll at least get a start on it, and I should also be able to finish Caves of Steel that I'm listening to. Hope everyone is having a great week!

  2. I am having a wonderful readathon, quality not quantity. Really reignited my thirst for science fiction--especially hard science--and i plan to read much more. So far 4 novels, 1 short story completed. Great prize ideas!

  3. So far so good for me as well. Finished two books but one being It. Whew... that one was long but so, so good! I finished a John Scalzi but the hubby and I played cards last night so no reading. I am hoping to get to another John Scalzi this evening!

  4. I did post a couple updates on Twitter. I finished my audiobook, Souljacker by Yasmine Galenorn which I had started before the RAT. It was urban fantasy, but you did say that still counted :) I'm still listening to The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel, and I'm really REALLY enjoying that one!! I'm not making much progress in my bedtime book, Raging Star by Moira Young.

  6. A late check in, but by this time I was well into A Court of Thorns and Roses, with only a little time spent with Oryx and Crake. The Country of Ice Cream Star will have to wait.

  7. Way late check-in. To be honest, I forgot about the mid-event check in. My wrap-up post is already up. I only finished one book, but I enjoyed it - except for having to wait now for the next in the series.

  8. Mid week (let's pretend) and I'm becoming a horrible participants in this read a thon, which I was so looking forward to. Only got half way through my first book. I will finish it...and the other two on my TBR list as well. :)

  9. I finished two fantasy books over the week. Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink and The Changeover by Margaret Mahy. It was great, I haven't been reading much fiction lately so it was great to be able to pick up two books. Thanks for running the read a thon.

  10. Looking forward to High Summer RaT
