Challenge: Bookish Fight! 
Reading Snacks: This time I went for a "mood food" snack, I was reading Uncommon Criminals so I matched it up with some mini muffins seems as they’re teen heists, smarties as all of the characters are incredibly witty and bright and a caffeine fix - hey! Even the *best* criminals need a pick me up now and then! - In my “I Solemnly Swear That I'm Up To No Good” Harry Potter mug. I think Fred and George would get along very nicely with these mischievous teens ;) AND it was yummy!

Non Reading Activity: Day two was pretty much a solid day of reading, after reaching my 2 book target already I started to get competitive with myself and thought "okay how about now we aim for FOUR books, double the stakes." So I really pushed myself yesterday. I did have a break over lunch though and caught up with the latest episode of Once Upon a Time again totally fitting for the readathon but this time it wasn't intentional - I watch this show every week! And I also updated on Twitter and took part in a mini challenge before finally crashing for a few hours of sleep!

Thoughts: The readathon is catching up with me now and today I'm feeling a little headachey, icky and tired PLUS I have a busy day ahead of me for day three. I can be quite self-competitive though and I'm determined to squeeze in one more book before it's all over or at least get a good chunk read, wish me luck! I feel like today I need that “you can do it!” boost!


  1. YOU MATCHED YOUR SNACKS TO YOUR BOOK! Clearly you should be a party planner. What would have gone with mine, I wonder? Jelly Tots for Karl Pilkington, because he has such a childish innocent view of life. But what goes with a book about a teenage God?!

    I ended up with a cracking good headache yesterday as well - though I think the humidity had something to do with it - and ended up half-watching Percy Jackson before bed instead of reading. Seriously, that dude is cute. :)

    GOOD LUCK FOR TODAY! I'm back at work too - I had less time reading this morning because we were out early for a book collection, and I'm going to see SPIDERMAN after work, but hopefully I'll get a chunk read during the day and maybe when I get home from the cinema. It'll keep me up late and I might regret it tomorrow, but I might be hungry anyway so I might as well squeeze in an extra half hour's reading time if I can! :)

  2. I'm not doing as well as I'd hoped with the readathon.
    Well done you! You can do it!!

  3. You're doing great Jess and you're reading Losing Lila!! I can't wait to pick that up. Good luck! :)
