Enthralled: Paranormal DiversionsPaper TownsTroll Or DerbySwitched
When I first signed up to the read-a-thon I decided that I wanted to out do my own achievements from last time but unfortunately I wasn’t 100% up to it this week, no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t achieve what I set out to do but I’m happy with my outcomes due to the fact after having a month of not reading this is a vast improvement! I hope you all have had a lovely week, and I’ll be stopping by every wrap up post over the next week or two depending on how many there are ;) Below I’m going to include synopsis’ of the books I’ve read – I hope you see something you like.
Enthralled: Paranormal Diversion by Melissa Marr: A journey may take hundreds of miles, or it may cover the distance between duty and desire. Sixteen of today’s hottest writers of paranormal tales weave stories on a common theme of journeying. Authors such as Kelley Armstrong, Rachel Caine, and Melissa Marr return to the beloved worlds of their bestselling series, while others, like Claudia Gray, Kami Garcia, and Margaret Stohl, create new land-scapes and characters. But whether they’re writing about vampires, faeries, angels, or other magical beings, each author explores the strength and resilience of the human heart. Suspenseful, funny, or romantic, the stories in Enthralled will leave you moved.
Paper Towns by John Green: When Margo Roth Spiegelman beckons Quentin Jacobsen in the middle of the night—dressed like a ninja and plotting an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows her. Margo’s always planned extravagantly, and, until now, she’s always planned solo. After a lifetime of loving Margo from afar, things are finally looking up for Q . . . until day breaks and she has vanished. Always an enigma, Margo has now become a mystery. But there are clues. And they’re for Q. Printz Medalist John Green returns with the trademark brilliant wit and heart-stopping emotional honesty that have inspired a new generation of readers.
Troll or Derby by Red Tash: In Troll Or Derby, fifteen-year-old Roller Deb is singled out by town bullies for both her skates, and for being different. When her popular homecoming queen of a sister is kidnapped by a scuzzy drug dealer, Deb must flee the trailer park in which she’s grown up, and rescue her. Along the way, Deb becomes enmeshed in the magical realm of trolls and fairies, and the blood-thirsty version of roller derby at which these beings excel. But spending too much time among the fairies comes with a price. Will Deb choose to save her sister, with the aid of a mysterious troll? Or will she be lost to the lures of roller derby, and the blonde temptress April, forever?
Switched by Amanda Hocking: What if your entire world was built on a lie? Wendy Everly knew she was different the day her mother tried to kill her and accused her of having been switched at birth. Although certain she’s not the monster her mother claims she is – she does feel that she doesn’t quite fit in… She’s bored and frustrated by her small town life – and then there’s the secret that she can’t tell anyone. Her mysterious ability – she can influence people’s decisions, without knowing how, or why… When the intense and darkly handsome newcomer Finn suddenly turns up at her bedroom window one night – her world is turned upside down. He holds the key to her past, the answers to her strange powers and is the doorway to a place she never imagined could exist. Förening, the home of the Trylle. Finally everything makes sense. Among the Trylle, Wendy is not just different, but special. But what marks her out as chosen for greatness in this world also places her in grave danger. With everything around her changing, Finn is the only person she can trust. But dark forces are conspiring – not only to separate them, but to see the downfall everything that Wendy cares about. The fate of Förening rests in Wendy’s hands, and the decisions she and Finn make could change all their lives forever…

  1. Well done, you have done fantastic!!! The days just drify by dont they hehe. A lot of ppl seem to have had an 'odd' week where they couldn't give 100% for various reasons. Has long as you enjoyed your reading and the readathon that's all that matters :) On the last day i have approx 50% of my book to read (Confessions of an Angry girl) and i was so into the book and loved it that much that i sat and read the whole of it :)

    I have Switched to read plus the other two, looking forward to reading it :) xx

  2. You did great. I love the Switched series. I read it eons ago and then recently re-read it when it came out in paperback. Hope you enjoyed it. Hope you had a good week whether you achieved your initial goals or not. Hope to see you at Bout-of-Books 6.0 in January ;)
