  1. I really enjoyed seeing what you are reading this week, Tanya, esp since I am your partner in the read-a-thons, it seems! I came over from Michelle’s site when I saw you were reading Anne Rice – it’s been forever since I’ve read her books but I remember meeting Lestat as if it were yesterday – enjoy! Be careful – you will get lost in her world!

    I am looking forward to seeing your review of Wicked as I have been wanting to read it but have seen a surprising range of reviews on it.

    I thought #7 was funny and I can’t wait to hear more of what that is about as well! I am sure there is a story behind that one.

    Have fun reading and hope to tweet with you between breaks this week!

  2. Wow! I didn’t know there were so many readathons in one week! It must mean that reading is all you do this week. I love Dewey’s readathon because it’s only 24 hours and I usually can spend my full 24h (minus a good sleep) on it. This time I won’t be able to join in which is a real shame.

    Have good fun! I hope you gets a lot of books read.

  3. I still have my fingers crossed for your blogaversary giveawway!! I think I’ve read everything on your list except #5. I’ll have to look into that! I just started Chris Bohjalian’s newest “The Sandcastle Girls”. I’ve loved every single book of his I’ve ever read.

  4. I am pretty new to the blogging world and really had no idea that I could find such great info on books! I love everything books I am so excited for this and very glad I found your blog via SITS GIRLS 🙂

  5. We are going to really be read-a-thon-ing this week! I’m so glad you signed up for mine. I hope you decide to read Interview with the Vampire. Excellent book!

    Happy that I survived what would have been my 15th wedding anniversary. My husband and I are divorcing so it was a tough day, but I survived!

    My favorite book which is by my favorite author is Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice.

    Thanks for the giveaway! Happy Blogaversary to you. Hope you have many more years of blogging. 🙂

    1. Thanks Michelle, sorry to hear of your divorce but glad you survived. I really hope Interview with a Vampire comes in soon, I’m 3rd on the Kindle version waitlist from the library 🙂 You’re very welcome for the giveaway, good luck and thanks for entering and supporting my blog!

  6. Wicked and Catching Fire are both great reads! good luck with the readathon – I’m rooting for you.

    Hmm favorite author – that is so impossible at the moment lets say that its Chuck Wendig. He wrote Blackbirds (this woman can see how anyone is going to die by touching them)

  7. I love your updates on book events – otherwise, I’d be so out of the loop 🙂 I’ve never done a read-a-thon, but with the husband working this weekend, I hope to have lots of me time and make a dent in some of the books I’m reading.

    1. Well I’m glad so my updates on book events help you, I feel like I need them in one place because there are so many going on! I like read-a-thons for the twitter parties and networking with other book bloggers. I try to read more than I normally would but it never ends up being as much as I’d like! Happy reading this weekend.

    1. Woohoo, sounds like a good plan Rebecca. I love getting my favorite bloggers to join events with me 🙂 Then there’s a chance we can converse in a twitter party in real time!

  8. Thankful that my running friends that were at Boston are okay.

    I can’t choose a favorite author let alone a favorite book. I can’t even choose a Top Ten. Maybe if it was one genre at a time?

    I’m doing spring into horror and off to sign up for Spring reading thing

    and yes, my day of silence isn’t going to well.
