TACKLE YOUR TBR READ-A-THON CHALLENGE

*** SO SO SORRY ABOUT THE RAFFLECOPTER!  COME BACK TOMORROW OR JUST LEAVE A COMMENT AND YOU WILL BE ENTERED***



I am so excited to be part of this Read-a-thon!  I love having something to work towards.

I am not committing to much.  I am taking my daughter to school this week and will be gone for a week, so life is a little hectic.  I am looking forward to reading on the road though :).  I hope to read at least 5 books, but again I am not committing :).  Thankfully Tressa @ Wishful Endings says ANY book is okay to add to the challenge.  WOO HOO :).

My first one was a random read I had picked for another challenge I am in.  So I am done with one.  It was:
18214868
My review is HERE

It's a super cute book, and a lot of fun to read.

NOW, onto my part of the challenge planned for this Read-a-Thon.

My Challenge is: Random Page Challenge
Pick a random page of the book you are currently reading and share it with us, without giving anything away about the book :).

My random page is: (well my kindle only has a location...so it's Location 189)  The books name is AVERY by Charlotte McConaghy

"horse-it was too beautiful- although if I killed it's rider it would undoubtedly die anyway.
I waited until the boy circled towards me, opening up his chest, and without thinking enough to hesitate, let loose my arrow."

Now your turn!  Share in the comments!!!


The Prize:
(1) $10.00 gift card from Amazon to be emailed to the winner.


Unfortunately I didn't get the rafflecopter set up in time, so if you want to enter you will have to return on the 10th of September :).  Just another way to suck you into my blog :).  Kidding.  Sorry  about that!  I really am.

THE RULES (well some of them anyway :))

***Anyone is welcome to enter as long as they have an email address AND you MUST post your random page in the comments or leave a link to your post about your random page challenge or you are NOT eligible for the prize.  Names and addresses will be confirmed before sending out the gift card.***

  1. I'm reading A Better Man by Amy Vastine right now and at Loc 132 it says, "It was so easy for him. She couldn't afford to be so careless with her heart."

    Thanks so much for hosting! I'll be back tomorrow. :)

  5. I'm reading The Moment Of Everything, by Shelly King. On page 38, it says:
    Perhaps on Avi's home planet tree bark tea tasted sweet, but here under our sun it had a bitter, woody taste of, well, tree bark.
    "Nice tea," I said.

  8. I'm reading Curtsies & Conspiracies by Gail Carriger.
    Kindle book, so 87% location 3426-3429:

    “What do you want?” Sophronia was moved to exasperation.
    “Me? Stockings and breeches to come back into fashion. I do so miss seeing a man’s calves.”
    Sophronia swallowed down a startled giggle as the fly drew up in front of Walsingham House Hotel.

    I'm signed up for the read-a-thon as Aleksandra @ Aleksandra's Corner, though in the form I'll be Aleksandra N.

    Fun challenge, thanks for hosting!

  11. Nest by Esther Erlich (loc 1985):
    She seems nervous, because her eyes are kind of flitty, but maybe she thinks I'm mad at her for not sending a thank-you note for the lemon meringue pie, and for not answering my letter that asked for her recipe for latkes...

  13. My random page is from the book I am currently reading for the challenge. My reader doesn't tell me the page or how far I am in the book. It's from Chances Are by by Traci Hunter Abramson.

    A ball of lead formed in Ben's stomach. He could only imagine Maya sitting at the hospital waiting for him all this time, and on an infusion day, no less, when she had already been at the hospital half the day.
