Wicked Wildfire Readathon: Day 9

Books read today: Wives and Daughters, Marie Antoinette
All books finished: Refuge, When Did I Get Like This?, The Reader

11:30 am: I've had a busy morning, and an even busier day planned, so I don't know how much reading I'll really be able to do. I have read a couple chapters of Wives and Daughters, though. It's getting interesting! It's fun to get into a classic that's so easy to read.

10:00 pm: Well, as I predicted, it hasn't been much of a reading day. However, I did read another chapter of Marie Antoinette, which means I'm basically halfway done! Which also means that I finished all my goals for the readathon! Yippee! I'm pretty proud of myself. I even went above and beyond, finishing three books instead of just the two I was planning. Tomorrow, the last day of the readathon, probably will be another slow reading day (I have family in town), but I'm proud of what I've accomplished so far.


  1. Wives and Daughters will get even more interesting, I promise! It's a very sweet summer read, and I hope you'll enjoy it :)
    Good work with the read-a-thon, congratulations!!

  2. Doesn't it feel good when you meet all of your goals? I haven't been in that position for awhile so I'm happy to be able to applaud your achievement! And it's been interesting seeing all the books that you've been reading. Wives and Daughters is a Gaskell that I haven't read yet but am so looking forward to!

    1. It's been a while since I've met all my goals, too! Thanks! I've only read North & South and I've wanted to read more from her ever since.

  3. I got Wives and Daughters for my birthday, but still haven't started it. Been intimidated by its size -- but sounds like it's not a slog at all! Very cool. I'll start it sooner than later, then :-)

    Also, I tagged you in a game of Bucket List Tag here on my blog. Play if you want to!
