Wild Wildfire Read-A-Thon: Starting Post + Updates + Wrap-up

Posted June 19, 2012 | 12 Comments

It’s #WWReadathon time again!    Are you joining?  I hope so!  You can get all information and sign-up by clicking on the image above.  I’m sure Rebecca @ Kindle Fever and April @ My Shelf Confessions have scheduled some fun challenges.

Make sure to join in on Twitter by using #WWReadathon

Okay, so I’m typing this up a few days early and plan to schedule it, because I’ll be out of town and won’t be able to start until Wednesday afternoon-ish. I’ll also add my updates on this post. So as of now, these are my goals:


Day 1 – Wednesday

Book Read:
Dead Reckoning
# of Pages Read: 102

I didn’t get to start reading until 9pm, but then keep dozing off. Tomorrow should be better

Day 2 – Thursday

Book Read:
Dead Reckoning & Patient Zero
# of Pages Read: DR = 132 / PZ = 15%

I should finish DR tomorrow! The twitter party today was fun, and even got #WWReadathon trending


Day 3 – Friday

Book Read:
Dead Reckoning
# of Pages Read: 103

Sheesh… I finally finished my 1st book for the RAT. Now I hope I can get Patient Zero completed.


Day 4 – Saturday

Book Read:
Patient Zero
# of Pages Read: 13% of PZ.

I honestly don’t know why it’s taking me so long to get through this book. It’s really good, but it’s taking me forEVER!

: Kriss has a fun challenge that I decided to do at the last minute. It’s called Beach Soiree. We have to give our perfect beach, perfect date, preferred swimwear, and first choice book to read. So here are my answers…

Perfect Beach

Bora Bora, baby!

Perfect Date

I don’t care what anyone says – Seth MacFarlane is my Yummy Man! He technically has Family Guy books, so there. 😀

Preferred Swimwear

There’s nothing to put here, because I’d prefer SKINNY DIPPIN’!

First Choice of Book to Read

If I could get any book even if it hasn’t been released yet… Flesh & Bone or Rage Within. Honestly, I wouldn’t be reading if I were skinny dipping in Bora Bora with Seth MacFarlane.

This one is called Party Up with Literature hosted by Preet.

I’m currently reading Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry, so there is a lot of action. There would definitely be a lot of music to get the adrenaline pumping, and for some messed up situations. If the characters were in a band, it would be some rock for sure.

Here is my playlist for the book:

Nightmare by Avenged Sevenfold
Sacra by Apocalyptic
Hells Bells by AC/DC
Won’t Back Down by Eminem ft. Pink

Day 5 – Sunday

Book Read:
Patient Zero
# of Pages Read: Haha… like 1%. So I’m a total of 64% finished with PZ.


Okay, so I read Dead Reckoning and about 1/2 of Patient Zero during WWReadathon. I participated in a few challenges and crashed both twitter parties. It’s been decided that I’m going to marry myself when I turn into Atticus from the Iron Druid series for a day. Also, we now have a WWReadathon theme song! Woot!

Can’t wait for the next one in October!
