#WWRead-a-thon Wrap up!


Well, last night I wrote an entire post about the weekend read a thon, and my progress. This morning. I check and it looks like blogger ate it! I'd be more pissed, if I wasn't so exhausted. Once again I am reminded that I should write my post in Word first, then transfer it over. :( *sigh*

So I'll make this really short. The weekend was a successful one in terms of reading & the read a thon. I finished two books, MLP: Friendship is Magic graphic novel (see my review below), and Draon's Oath: A House of Night Novella (review will post tomorrow).
 
I made considerable progress on Fargoer, which has been the thorn in my side for the past month. It's almost completed. I also got to really sit down with The Woman in White, the classic I'm reading for the Dust off your Classics challenge. I decided, since I hadn't made much progress anyway-- to re-read it and I'm glad I did. It is a 700 page book. Yeah, I didn't realize this when I ordered it on Amazon and now I feel compelled to read it, since I bought such a lovely copy. It did make me LOL :D a few times though, within the first 6 chapters..so that's promising! Either way, I'll do my post sometime in May for the challenge. (Whether I finish or not).
 

I can't wait to start a new book for review soon, and a new book for "fun" too. I'm really tempted to read the sequel to Daughter of Exile, which I've gushed about a lot. I think perhaps ill start it now so the previous story is fresh in my mind. ;)

How was everyone's weekend? Comment below, I'd love to talk to you guys.
