This week ended up being way busier than I thought it would be! I didn’t read nearly as much as I wanted to, and I didn’t make my goal of 1200 pages or 3-4 full books. I did read 4 different books, but AGoS was almost done and I DNFed Burning Sky so those don’t really count. *sad face* Oh well, I still read more than I normally would in a week, so yay!

    I haven’t successfully done a readathon, but there’s a first time for everything, right? I just signed up with my Twitter account, but forgot to include the direct link where I’ll update my progress, so I’ll pin it as well :) Thanks for hosting and hope this motivates me to get reading!
