Sci-Fi Summer #Readathon - Midevent Check-in and #Prizes #SciFiJune

For those of you who aren't on Facebook...I admit to being MIA during the first week of the readathon. I had a health scare last week (cellulitis in my leg), they tried to put me in the hospital, but my leg wasn't bad. It was just because I'm allergic to SO MANY antibiotics. I told him NO about admitting me. Non-compliant, I know. He gave me a course of Doxycycline and I was determined to not have a reaction, and I didn't. I'm finally feeling like my old self. Earlier in the readathon I was being bad and not reading sci-fi. What!? I was hooked on finishing The Treatment by Mo Hayder. Wow! What a great book. Don't worry though. I'm not being that big of a rule breaker, although you guys know I'm not a huge stickler for rules. I started Fahrenheit 451 yesterday. It's a short one so when I've finished it, I'm going to read Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer.

How is the reading going for you? I hope everyone is enjoying it. It's going by so fast!

Share your progress in the comments, or leave a link, or update us in the Facebook group.

I hope you continue to enjoy the readathon!

Abaddon Rising, Book 3, Star Brides (Deg'Nara) Series by P.L. Parker (eBook - One winner)

One of a million statistics in the intergalactic war, Jocelyn St. Germaine is captured, sold as a slave and then forced to fight in the Deg’Nara gladiator games. She’s slated to lose when Kanaan, the most feared warrior of all, claims her as his own.
With his help, Joss’s chances of survival increase, but is it enough?

Kanaan filled his lungs and roared, head thrown back as he issued the challenge. “She belongs to me! I claim her!”
From behind him, he caught the female’s startled gasp.

  1. Glad to hear your illness wasn't as serious as it could have been. We watched Farenheit 451 this weekend (the new HBO one) and it was surprisingly good. Hope you enjoy Annihilation. That movie confused me :)
