Summer Wrap Up Read-A-Thon: Day 1 Update

The Summer Wrap Up Read-A-Thon is hosted by Jennifer at Some Like It Paranormal and Jude at In Between.

What I Read: This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers
Number of Pages Read: 322
Pages Read Total: 322
Books Read Total: 1
Challenge: Readathon TBR
Reading Snacks: None! With being ill I've completely lost my appetite and I'm not allowed anything yummy anyway which sucks as everybody knows one of the best things about a readathon is the snacks! My dad did cook me one of my favourites for dinner though, coconut curry! It was delicious and I'm hoping the spices will help blast away my cold!
Non Reading Activity: Today was spent pretty much in bed alternating between reading and sleeping, sounds perfect I know, but not so much when you have to stop every few minutes to cough a lung up! I did come down stairs for food though and I watched an episode of Lost over lunch. I've started to watch the DVD boxsets for the very first time and I'm hooked and currently on season 2 so you may be seeing a lot of Lost episode mentions in my none reading time. I also spent some time on twitter stalking other readathoners...naturally ;)

Thoughts: One book down already and it was a fantastic one at that! Definitely a 5 star and my favourite out of all of Courtney Summers' books yet. So far my reading is going well, now if only I could just kick this illness' ass and I could enjoy the mountain of yummy snacks I bought...


  1. Awesome start Jess, I was only able to read half of My Life Next Door, but I'm hoping to finish it today and start From What I Remember either later or tomorrow. I'm so happy that you loved This is Not a Test too! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it! :)

    1. I thought This is Not a Test was amazing, definitely my favourite book of the readathon!

  2. Ooh, this sounds like a fun readathon! I'm so happy you liked This Is Not a Test--this means I TOTALLY have to read it, but I was going to anyway because it's y'know, Courtney Summers :D Haha!

    1. It's Courtney Summers' best yet, your going to LOVE it!

  3. Yaaaay for a great book down already! And noooo for still feeling rubbish. But yaaaaaay for LOST! That was what our big student house/halls were watching the night of The Fire in our corridor, so it kinda put me off for a while - but I have season 1 now to start again at the beginning! I just couldn't stay away from Sawyer's shirtless pecs any longer... ;)

    1. Definitely start watching it again Ellie, so good, and then we can talk about it as we go along :)
