{Updates} Once Upon a Read-a-Thon

Monday, July 09, 2012 with 2 comments

So as not to make things too messy, this is going to be my updates post during the time of the Once Upon a Read-a-Thon challenge (my one post to rule them all - MWAHAHA!!!). I will post books as I finish them, and challenges will go here too, all under their respective days.

Day 1: Monday

Books Read
  1. What is your favorite cover that has been revealed and why? Post a link or picture of the cover if you want.
My favorite cover reveal has been for Scarlet by Marissa Meyer. I absolutely LOVED reading Cinder, and so I am really looking forward to this sequel. Plus, just look at that gorgeous cover, with the red cape that's flowing on it.

     2.  Do you rely on the cover to help you choose if you want to read a book or not?

Sometimes the cover may be what grabs my attention to a book, but I always have to read the synopsis, which is my true deciding factor. A book could have a beautiful cover, but if it sounds boring then I won't read it. I admit, I also may look at the ratings on Goodreads and Amazon.

Day 2: Tuesday

Books Read

As the storyteller, I now want you to tell me which two characters are fighting and WHY! If you want to, you're also more than welcome to guess the outcome.
Once upon a time, Gandalf and Dumbledore were out for tea, trying to outdo each other with tales of their latest epic adventures. But Gandalf could not see how Dumbledore could possibly believe that some hormonal teenager who spoke to owls was braver than his Frodo, and, likewise, Dumbledore could not see how some fuzzy half-ling with a tendency to break into song could possibly be more noble than his Harry. Their exchanges got rather heated, and both leapt back from their seats - Gandalf with his staff raised, and Dumbledore with his wand also poised and ready. They each began to circle the round table between them, prepared to utter their own spells when....BOOM!!!......both were knocked flat on their backs before the words had even left their mouths. When they each had collected themselves enough to look up and see what had happened, they only saw the swish of Merlin's cloak as he exited the tea room.

Day 3: Wednesday

Books Read

What is your most anticipated book for 2012?
Definitely The Girl Who Would Be King by Kelly Thompson. I wrote a short post about it here for Waiting on Wednesday. I've been more excited about this than anything else - I am ALWAYS up for a good superhero novel, the comic geek/fangirl that I am.


  1. Hi!

    I've just nominated you for the Versatile Blog Award! Head over to to see your nomination!


  2. I really like the red cape in Scarlet too! I wouldn't buy a beautiful cover with a boring synopsis either unless the cover really is that great.


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments are truly appreciated, and I always try to respond to each of you at your own blogs. Have an awesome day! :)
