Summer Wrap Up Read-A-Thon: Day 5 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: Raising Demons by Rachel Hawkins
Number of Pages Read: 359
Pages Read Total: 1466
Books Read Total: 4
Challenge: No

Reading Snacks: Today's snack of choice may seem a bit of an odd combination to some people but I swear it's good! Peanut M&M's mixed in with Sweet Cinema Style Popcorn. A friend of mine introduced me to this combination and they work so well together! It works with any flavour of popcorn really but I think it works best with either sweet or salted. Seriously, if you like Peanut M&M's and popcorn you should give it a try!
Non Reading Activity: I read solidly throughout the day so was finished with my book around 9pm so I watched a few more episodes of Lost before bed, yay!
Thoughts: Today was a most excellent day, I sailed through my book without even trying, it was an awesome book (4.5 star rating!) so reading it was effortless and I also hit my highest page count for this readathon so far in 359 pages. We're due some nice weather over the next few days in the UK so I'm hoping to fit in some reading in the garden if it's nice enough. I have a busier day ahead on day 6 with having to tackle the housework and jobs I've been putting off in favour of reading so I'm going with my shortest read next The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I've heard amazing things for this book and after reading my friend Ellie's review I'm even more excited to finally be picking it up!


  1. 1) Hooray for Charlie and his awesome new friends in THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER!
    2) You are on FIRE this week! So much great reading, I'm jealous!
    3) I am also extremely jealous of the fact that you get to sit out in this lovely weather and I'm stuck in a cold shop wearing a cardigan. Have an extra lemonade for me, would you? :)
    4) OH MY GOD how have I never thought to mix peanut M'n'Ms and popcorn together? This is totally happening this week, people.
    5) Also, I think I have those bowls. You are clearly awesome. :D

    Right, off the blogosphere and back to my book I think, after yesterday's anything-but-read-a-thon!

    1. 1.) *Cheers along for Charlie*
      2.) I didn't do as well as I hoped but considering I was ill I'm pretty chuffed with what I achieved :)
      3.) I didn't get to sit out in the sun after all it just wasn't that nice here :|
      4.) THEY ARE SO GOOD!!! You have to try them.
      5.) Twinsy ;)

  2. I wish I could do a read-a-thon but I never have the time!

    1. They're so fun Lyndsey, you should definitely try and do one and just read what you can :)

  3. Dude, now you have me craving M&Ms and popcorn!!!! The Perks of Being a Wallflower is like, one of my favourite books ever, so glad your reading it :)

    1. They are so good together you have to try them! Perks was great I can see why it's one of your favourites :)
