Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon - Wrap-Up


Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon ended yesterday. This was my best Read-a-Thon ever! Not only was I able to read every single book I planned to as I even started a book which wasn't part of my to-be-read list. I hope everyone had as much fun as I did.

My goals for Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon were
  1. To read 1000 pages;
  2. To participate in two challenges;
  3. To update my status.
I ended up reading more than 1000 pages. I participated in more than two challenges. And I did update my status.

About My Readings
  • I finished reading "The Scorch Trials" by James Dashner (ebook) - which I had started reading before the challenge began. During the challenge I started and finished "Frost Burned" and "Night Broken" by Patricia Briggs as well as "The Caller" by Juliet Marillier. I also started reading "The Selection" by Kiera Cass.
  • The day I read more was July 17th (Thursday) and the days I read less were July 14th and 15th (due to personal issues I wasn't able to read). On Thursday I read 305 pages
  • From July 14th to July 24th I read 1364 pages from five books. 
 These are the books I read. 

About the Challenges
I hope you enjoyed this Read-a-Thon as much as I did. Till next time! ;)

Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon 2014 - July 22nd

Pages read today: 31 pages of "The Scorch Trials" & 55 of "The Caller"
Total of pages read: 942 pages
Books read today: "The Scorch Trials" [ebook] & "The Caller"
Books read:"Frost Burned" by Patricia Briggs

"The Scorch Trials" by James Dashner

Today I decided to participate in the challenged hosted by  Kat @ My Shelf Confessions, Tune This Title
Pick a song that goes with your current (or very recent read that you’ve read during the WWRAT) read. Tell us the name of the book and explain why the song goes with  your book. 
For example: does it fit with the mood of the book; does it go with the main character’s emotional state?
Tell us why it fits your book in the comments, and don’t forget to tell us what book it is and a cool tip is to link a youtube video in the comments! :)
For this challenge I chose my current read, "The Caller" by Juliet Marillier. I think the song "Demons" by Imagine Dragons goes with the character Flint


 Some of the lyrics remind of the situation Flint is in  - he near his breaking point -, such as "When you feel my heat/Look into my eyes/It’s where my demons hide" (he is haunted by the things he has done - and still has to do - to keep secret his true loyalties). Also lyrics as "I wanna hide the truth/I wanna shelter you" and "Your eyes, they shine so bright/I wanna save that light/I can't escape this now/Unless you show me how" reminds of his relationship with Neryn. He wants to protect her, but he knows he can't do it all the time. And Neryn is his light in a world full of darkness; the one that is going to save him from his demons when it all comes to an end.

When it comes to ebooks, for some odd reason, I'm a very slow reader. I participated in the Guess the Title Picture Challenge hosted by Michelle @ Book Briefs.  
 
Ok, so how does this work? First you pick a book. Then you find pictures to represent the words in the book title. Then you put the pictures/clues together and try to guess what the book title is.  Get creative and make it as challenging as you want. Make a post with your Book picture puzzles and go around to different blogs and try to guess some of the puzzles. (Words like “the” “and” “on” “Of”, etc. are excluded from pictures).
 
I'm awful at guessing. And I'm awful at making something challenging. But here it goes my attempt. Can you guess the book title? 
 
 
Hint: I'm reading the second book of the series for the Read-a-Thon.

Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon 2014 - My Goals



My goals for Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon are:
  1. To read 1000 pages;
  2. To participate in two challenges;
  3. To update my status.
Here are the books I plan on reading during the challenge. I've started "The Scorch Trials" a while ago and I'm hoping I can finish it during this read-a-thon (I must to because I truly loved "The Maze Runner"). I've missed Mercy Thompson a lot, so I cant wait to put my hands on the latest books.
