today was kind of hard, guys. i had a serious book hangover from finishing the Legend trilogy. but i still soldiered on - got a few more books to read to complete the challenges!
started SIEGE & STORM and the first 100 pages alone have been a wild ride with much screeching from me! i’m looking forward to finishing off the BookTubeAThon with this book - but let’s face it, i’ll probably finish it by tomorrow XD
also started and finished AND THEN THERE WERE NONE, which is my new book for the “read a book from the genre you’ve read the least this year” challenge, and was also picked out for me by my friend Rae. blazed thru this one, the suspense and mystery were so interesting that i couldn’t help myself, i had to know whodunnit! 

final tally: 
- “Life Before Legend” by Marie Lu - read 41 pages
- “Warm Up” by V.E. Schwab - read 15 pages
- SIEGE & STORM by Leigh Bardugo - read 106 pages
- AND THEN THERE WERE NONE by Agatha Christie - read 275 pages - finished it!

Book-Tube-A-Thon Check-In DAY 4
guys. days off are the best guys. i got so much reading done today, including finishing the LEGEND trilogy, which was a little emotional, not gonna lie. CHAMPION had a lot of twists and turns and i wasn’t sure how things were going to end until the very last chapter - and i was very okay with the ending. it was happy in its own way.
i couldn’t read over 300 pages of CHAMPION in one go, however; i broke up the day and read a bunch of graphic novels, including one picked out for me by my friend Aki; WOLF CHILDREN: AME & YUKI, which is a 3-in-1 volume, and took me less than an hour to read. oops. this book also counts as a book-to-movie (or rather a movie-to-book) adaptation (i’m running with it), so looks like i’ll be fufilling that challenge after all!
tomorrow’s goals: start AND THEN THERE WERE NONE (another recommended book) and SIEGE & STORM. also to-be-read: “Life Before Legend” and any other graphic novels that catch my eye ;)
HAPPY READING!!!
final tally: 
- CHAMPION by Marie Lu - read 332 pages - finished it!
- EARTH 2 (Volume 1: The Gathering) - read 118 pages - finished it!
- WORLD’S FINEST (Volume 1: The Lost Daughters of Earth 2) - read 144 pages - finished it!
- WOLF CHILDREN: AME & YUKI - read 528 pages - finished it!
- 1122 (total pages today) / 2126 (total pages so far) / 7 books read!

Book-Tube-A-Thon Check-In DAY 3
busy day! read another forty or so pages of PRODIGY after midnight before i had to get some sleep, then finished it off when i got up. squeaked in thirty pages of CHAMPION before i had to head to work. this trilogy is so good; while i was able to figure out some plot twists on my own, i never know what to expect next, and this last book is going to be a wild ride, i’m sure!
picked up EARTH 2 Volume 1 after work when i got to my boyfriend, but we had a late dinner and watched Return of the Joker and called it an early night.
i’ll be knuckling down for the next two days, i promise, because i finally have some time off! (goals for tomorrow: finish CHAMPION??? / read WOLF CHILDREN and some other graphic novels.)
final tally: 
- PRODIGY by Marie Lu - read 141 pages - finished it!
- CHAMPION by Marie Lu - read 36 pages
- EARTH 2 (Volume 1: The Gathering) - read 42 pages
- 219 (total pages today) / 1004 (total pages so far) / three books read!

Book-Tube-A-Thon Check-In DAY 2
had to get up early for work for a 7hr shift; i didn’t sleep well last night so i was out of it for most of the day. 
got some reading in on my breaks, but i had to wait until i got home to really dive into the rest of LEGEND and finish it off. (cups of tea are your friend.) it was AWESOME, btw.
picked up PRODIGY after dinner and i’m racing thru that—so much drama!! assassination plots! (that may or may not happen.) and love triangles! (that aren’t (that) annoying!)
still super tired, but i might power thru the rest of PRODIGY before i crash. i gotta know what happens!!
goals for tomorrow: finish PRODIGY / start CHAMPION. (and possibly get thru WOLF CHILDREN.)

final tally: 
- LEGEND by Marie Lu - read 205 pages - finished it!
- PRODIGY by Marie Lu - read 230 pages
- 435 (total today) / 785 (total so far) / two books read!
