OUaRaT Day 2 Update

OnceUponAReadaThon Once Upon a Readathon: Mini Challenge

Greetings Fellow Readathoners! Accomplishing your goals?? I was doing great and ahead of schedule, but then I spent most of my evening yesterday with the Baby and tooling around online. Oops! 

As it stands: 
Finished Blood Calling
I am 21% through The Henchmen's Book Club
I visited a lot of blogs yesterday but didn't follow any! 
I have a review written up, but not polished. I am hoping to post it tonight or tomorrow morning.

How are your goals proceeding?? Leave your link the comments below!!

Here is the mini-challenge from Better Read then Dead:

 "You're in a bookstore and you've just purchased 5 books you've been dying to read, when the apocalypse hits. You've got one chance at survival, what 2 books do you take and what 3 other items do you take?" 
WOW. This is always a tough question for me. I am going to exclude the obvious such as: MY CHILD or MY HUSBAND. That's a given. I will talk about inanimate objects only. The first two books I thought of were
1. The Bible
2. Pride and Prejudice
At first I was thinking "Fiction! Duh!" I thought about adding some Terry Brooks, but thought hey! at the end of the world, I probs won't have time for epic fantasy. I thought about what I would enjoy and almost added this:
 Sideways Stories from Wayside School (Wayside School #1)
Because, let's face it. At the end of the world, you will be needing some good laughs. 

Items I would take (again, not mentioning the obvious food!):
1. Gun
2. Phone and phone charger
3. somebody else's nice car, Humvee, Jeep, Range Rover :)

No, I do not support car theft, but it is the apocalypse people! 

Here is the mini challenge from IB Book Blogging:
"Make your dream guy using characteristics, personalities, looks, and anything else you can think of from your favorite book boyfriends."
Again, tough for me. I just have such a hard time having 'book boyfriends'! Guess I been married too long a time :) What I DO know is I would take Harry's courage, Ron's best friend-edness, Edward's undying love, Jacob's body (oops), The Doctor's sense of adventure, Mr Darcy's manners, and Michael Hosea's love for God.

Thanks for stopping by the new place! Consider following via Feedly or Bloglovin'!

  1. Love your answer! :) That sounds like the perfect guy. It is easier for me to choose my dream guy since I'm single and not married. ;) Hehe. The possibilities are endless!

    1. I think if I met a real guy like that...I might die. So its probably better he's fictional!!

  2. Alyssa I'm glad you thought of a gun, I'm surprised not many people did LOL

    1. I know! Seems obvious....I will have to protect it well!
