These Holidays…

20140701-211752.jpg

My bedside table has been full for months, the books changing up a bit, but it has towered there constantly, with the same base books being put off because I have library books to return or too much homework. No more, I say! *dramatic pose* These holidays (two weeks from tomorrow) I vow to clear that pile! Who’s with me?! *crowd cheers*

Honestly though, I would love for you to take up the challenge with me.

Are there any books you’ve been putting off reading? Books that you’ve just received and can’t wait to dive into? Let me know, and we can take up this challenge together.

Not that it’s much of a challenge being as they’re books I’m dying to read, but more in how many I can read in rapid-fire, juggling sleeping in and other holiday activities as well. Also, this challenge includes all holds I have at the library that come through as well.

(I do apologise if that made no sense whatsoever, I’m prone to doing that…)

UPDATE!

I have now finished my holidays and I regret to say that I have not completed my goal, with almost half of the book Prayer: A Personal Testimony by Alfred Stanway and My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult to go. However, I ended up reading 13 Novels and 9 Manga Volumes in this time.

For those interested, below are some screenshots from Goodreads that detail what books I read. NOTE: The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa does not count as it was completed before this holiday period.

Teaser Tuesday #1

I just read this post and it sounds like an awesome idea. My teaser of the week shall be from “The One” by Kiera Cass.

Kriss did another stitch. “I’m going to stay no matter what.” Something about the way she said it seemed to be directed specifically at me. Like I needed to know she wasn’t giving up on Maxen.
“Same here,” I promised.

I know that was more than two sentences but I’ve decided that I won’t limit it to that. Please comment with your teasers and let me know what you’re up to. πŸ™‚
