Total books read 2.25
Total pages read so far: 467
Total time read: 480 mins
I took of 30 mins instead of 15 to feed the kids that did not appreciate it oh well. Back to reading
I am currently reading The Hardy Boys The Tower Treasure and it is good so far a lot better than Evermore I wonder when these Authors are gonna realize that the appeal of the book will wane in about 5 years. Heck Oprah will not have a show after 2011 and I am not sure how long DrPhil will last.

Meal: I cherry twizzler. I don't really eat while I read.
Hours spent reading : 2hr and 25 mins
I am doing pretty good with my reading so far I am on schedule for my goal. The only problem I am having now is that the constant interruptions from the kids. I am also having trouble getting into Evermore because it is too pop culturish. Which can get very annoying. Fade was much better cause it left all that type of stuff out. I understand that it is a YA book but they need to see that this stuff they are writing will seem archaic too the current generations children.

Hour 1 of the #RRReadathon










Books completed: 0

Pages read:94
Mins spent reading 45.
Listening to Pandora Quick Mix Station
Ate: Nothing but that will change the next hour

Please avoid spoilers!

Todays teaser comes from Betrayed by P.C. and Kristen Cast.

I made my way over to the long, linen-draped table that ran the length of one wall. It was filled with expensive cheese and meat platters, desserts, coffee, tea, and wine. I'd been at the House of Night for a month, and it still was shocking to me that wine is served so readily here.(pg6)

This week's teaser comes from Marked by P.C. Cast.

Also, it is assumed that their leader is being groomed to be a High Priestess, so she 's supposed to be the heart, mind and spirit of the school- as well as a future leader in vamp society, et cetera, et cetera, blah blah. Think National Merit Scholar in charge of the Honor society mixed with ceerleaders and band fags."

Mail Box Mondays

This is a weekly meme hosted by Marcia of Printed Page.

I only received only on book in the mail this week which is great for me because I have been turning down reviews because I am over my limit at the library.










I received this from the author to read and review.



Product Description from Amazon.com
What if you found out that everything you thought you knew was a lie? That the people you loved and trusted kept a life changing secret from you? These are a few of the questions Amanda Martineau must answer in The Truth Lies in the Dark. As a child Amanda survived a plane crash that killed her parents and left her with no memory of her life before the accident. Raised by her grandparents, she only knows what they have told her about her past and her family. But her reoccurring nightmares tell her something different. They leave her feeling like a stranger in her own mind. Then an unfinished letter written by her grandfather thrusts her deeper into confusion. A business trip with her husband Nick quickly turns into a personal journey to expose the secret of her past. As she searches for answers she only finds more questions. Who can she trust? Who is there to help her and who is there to make sure that the truth remains...in the dark?

Snacks/Meals eaten: Lunchables Ham, Cheddar + Mini Ritz
My Thoughts: Well I would have read more pages and completed more books but I had to go audiobook because my son had rocket day with the boy scouts. Am I disappointed with myself no because my son enjoyed him self and my daughter had fun at the playground. I will now move on to more serious reading that does not require audiobook. Chocalot was a short Manga of only 200 pages and I enjoyed it its about the trials and tribulations of groupies following their favorite band. The setting takes place in Korea. I have learned a lot about some of the Korean culture through this series.

Hour 1 mini- challenge


Where are you reading from today? In my room, the kitchen and outside of my son's school
3 facts about me … I am a mother, A cat shelter volunteer, A nursing graduate
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? 12 books
Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)? I hope to read at least 6 books, I don't have any goals for the number of pages, I hope to read at least 18 hours and I have not goals on commenting on blogs. So to me there are no set number of comments

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time? My advice for newbies is if your eyes get tired switch to an audiobook for awhile you are allowed one audiobook I think also if you have kids to cook for that helps as well.

Let The Read-a-Thon Begin


And she is off. I have now officially started the readathon. I thought I would start with the audiobook Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson. This reason I am starting with an audiobook is because I will be helping my son out with Rocket Day for his boy scout troop. So not to disappoint him we have decided to do that. Luckily I have enough memory on my blackberry to download it from audible.com. So for the first 4 hours I will be listening to Wintergirls. I will probably use it again when my eyes get tired around 12am. I am going to to do as many hours as I can stay awake.
I have decided to update my blog every 4 hours and complete one mini-challenge per 4 hours. I will be tweeting my progress every hour since its just quick flip to goodreads. My goals for this readathon is to complete at least 6 of the 12 books in my readathon pile.
Here is my readathon pile as of today:
1. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
2.Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown by Maud Hart Lovelace
3.Heaven to Betsy by Maud Hart Lovelace
4.Betsy in Spite of Herself by Maud Hart Lovelace
5. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
6. Frostbite by Richelle Mead
7. Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead
8. Chocolate Vol 3 by Shin Jisang.Geo
9. Marked by P.C. and Kristin Cast
10. Betrayed by P.C. and Kristin Cast
11. Nana Vol 1 by Ai Yazawa
12 Nana Vol 2 by Ai Yazawa
See ya again in 4 hours.....

Review of The Family Constitution by Scott Gale



Product Details

Paperback: 128 pages
Publisher: Spectrum International Press (January 15, 2010)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0982296134
ISBN-13: 978-0982296134


Product Description from Amazon.com

What do you get when you cross two working professionals, two active kids and a dog? Chaos! For more than a decade, Scott Gale and his wife, Karen, juggled three bowling bowls- kids, personal needs, and careers. Clear and consistent expectations simply did not factor into their frantic lifestyle. In the wake of a Mother's Day family meltdown, Gale took time to evaluate his family's challenges and induce change, piecing together a powerful tool to restore family harmony. This 'Family Constitution' became the catalyst for clarity, consistency and commitment ('3C's), enabling his family to enjoy mutually understood boundaries and much-needed structure. Your Family Constitution shares Gale's innovative parenting tool and, more importantly, reveals the step-by-step process he went through to become a happier and more effective parent. He guides readers through the rewarding process of creating their own custom Family Constitution, while sharing many hilarious and personal accounts of parenting successes and failures. Your Family Constitution is a life-changing technique that parents can easily apply to make their own families stronger.

My Review:

This book is just what my family needs in our chaotic lives. We are constantly going through issue with discipline. Here in ths book they use the basic principles of the constitution to come up with a solution to help with the most of the common issues that families deal with on a day to day basis.

The author starts the book off by talking about the time his family hit rock bottom. For him it was a wake up call. From then he though there has got to be a better way. So one day he contemplated for a while and came up with the constitution. He figured if the founding fathers had it to help balance power in government then it shoube be adapted into the family setting as well.

He then goes on to discuss a step by step way of framing and creating your own family constitution which would be right for you family. It is divided into 4 chapters with the second part of the book. It includes an appendix at the end of the book that shows the constitution of the Gale family.

Mr. Gale is a very straight-forward he does not sugar coat the results for you. He clearly states that you will not see results right away but if you maintain consitency you will see results. The key is you must reinforce the rules.

I recommend this for any family because it has a lot of valuable tips for helping your household run as smoothly as possible. I hope to incorporate this in my family life as soon as my hubby gets home we will start using the principles in this book.

I rate this book a 4/5

Mail Box Mondays

This is a weekly meme brought to you by Marcia of The Printed Page

I only recieved one book in the mail this week. Which is good because my house is overflowing with books. When hubby gets back from Iraq he will have a heart attack.

Here is what I recieved from Marcia of The Printed Page:

Recieve me falling by Erika Robuck



Product Description
Every slave story is a ghost story. The haunting words of an historian and former cane worker on the Caribbean island of Nevis launch Meghan Owen on her quest to unlock the secrets of an abandoned sugar plantation and its ghosts. After Meg's parents die in a car accident on the night of her engagement party, she calls off her wedding, takes leave of her job in Annapolis, and travels to land she's inherited on Nevis. A series of discoveries in an old plantation house on the property, Eden, set her on a search for the truth surrounding the shameful past of her ancestors, their slaves, and the tragedy that resulted in the fall of the plantation and its inhabitants. Through a crushing phone call with her lawyer, Meg learns that her father's estate was built on stolen money, and is being sued by multiple sources. She is faced with having to sell the land and plantation home, and deal with the betrayal she feels from her deceased father. In alternating chapters, the historical drama of the Dall family unfolds. Upon the arrival of British abolitionists to the hedonistic 19th century plantation society, Catherine Dall is forced to choose between her lifestyle and the scandal of deserting her family. An angry confrontation with Catherine's slave, Leah, results in the girl's death, but was it murder or suicide? Hidden texts, scandalous diaries, antique paintings, and confessional letters help Meghan Owen uncover the secrets of Eden and put the ghosts to rest.

Thanks Marcia.

Review of Kit Learns a Lesson by Valerie Tripp



Product Details
Reading level: Ages 9-12
Paperback: 67 pages
Publisher: American Girl Publishing Inc (September 2000)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1584850183
ISBN-13: 978-1584850182

Synopsis from Barnes and Noble.com
Kit hopes her father will find a new job soon so that things can return to the way they were before—with no boarders in the house and no long list of daily chores. But a visit to a soup kitchen shows Kit just how much the Depression has changed everything.


My Review:
In this book the focus is on Kit and her classmates. She and Ruthie sit together in school. They are getting ready for the Thanksgiving season at school. While setting up for a play, a boy in thier class insults Kit. She lashes out and she and Ruthie are punished.

Meanwhile, Kit;s father is looking for a job. He goes down to the city for job interviews but all is not s i t seems.

At the house they are getting ready for more boarders. They need more boarders to help pay bills cause they are starting to get behind.

Overall this is a good book for a young girl. It will teach her what it was like to be a child living in the depression or what some of the less fortunate go through now in this day in time. It is a fast read and is very engaging.

I rate this book a 4/5.

This is the first in a series written for young firls as an introduction to historical fiction of America in this series they focus on what life was like for a child during the The Great Depression.

Review for Elizabeth and Mary Cousins, Rivals Queens by Jane Dunn



Product Details
Audio CD
Publisher: Random House Audio; Abridged edition (January 6, 2004)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 073930982X
ISBN-13: 978-0739309827

Synopsis from Barnes and Noble.com
The political and religious conflicts between Queen Elizabeth I and the doomed Mary, Queen of Scots, have for centuries captured our imagination and inspired memorable dramas played out on stage, screen, and in opera. But few books have brought to life more vividly than Jane Dunn’s Elizabeth and Mary the exquisite texture of two women’s rivalry, spurred on by the ambitions and machinations of the forceful men who surrounded them. The drama has terrific resonance even now as women continue to struggle in their bid for executive power.Against the backdrop of sixteenth-century England, Scotland, and France, Dunn paints portraits of a pair of protagonists whose formidable strengths were placed in relentless opposition. Protestant Elizabeth, the bastard daughter of Anne Boleyn, whose legitimacy had to be vouchsafed by legal means, glowed with executive ability and a visionary energy as bright as her red hair. Mary, the Catholic successor whom England’s rivals wished to see on the throne, was charming, feminine, and deeply persuasive. That two such women, queens in their own right, should have been contemporaries and neighbours sets in motion a joint biography of rare spark and page-turning power.


My Review:

I listened to the abridged version of this book. It did not feel like I was missing a lot. It gave me the meat and potatoes of the story.

The narrator's voice was very suitable for this genre. So it was very interesting. The narrator seem really into what she was saying. The CD were about an hour long each. So you are roughly listening to 8 hours of material.

The author seemed well -researched in her topic. Her writing style seemed more like a novelist than a boring dry historian. It will definitely keep your attention.

I would recommend it to any who has the love of Tudor England and of course the infamous Mary Stuart.

I rate this a 4/5

Product Description from Amazon.com

Hanabi Oozora's always acted like a boy, but she's never actually wanted to date one, until she meets Yasuaki Garaku. Hanabi wants to discover the origin of hunky Student Council V.P. Yasuaki's dislike of women, but lately, he has been anything but forthcoming. Her solution - the ancient art of hypnosis! Through her prestigious powers of prestidigitation (and with the help of a five-yen coin), Hanabi successfully lulls Yasuaki into a deep slumber, but will this voyage into his murky, male subconscious yield proof-positive that Yasuaki's aversion is unfounded, or further drive a wedge between the dashing V.P. and all of womankind?

Product Description from Amazon.com

Just when Hanabi thinks that she and the dreamy Yasuaki have reached the pinnacle of romantic bliss, the cruel hand of fate throws her a wicked curveball - her childhood friend Takeru (now a marvelous specimen of teenage studliness) is back in town and wants to reminisce about the good old days. Takeru's designs on Hanabi seem more than friendly, especially when he asks her to choose between Yasuaki and himself. Who'll get kissed? Who'll get punched? Who'll get kissed and punched?! Later, Hanabi finds herself in trouble with the school administration (for, like, the gazillionth time), and now must ace her finals and become the best student in her class...or else face the horrifically hair-raising consequences!

Product Description from Amazon.com

What happens when an all-girls' high school reigning tomboy finds out her school is about to be filled with boys!?
Hanabi Oozora is a rambunctious 16-year-old tomboy who comes to the rescue of her less assertive friends-sometimes in exchange for food. So what does she do when, all of a sudden, her all-girls' school is about to be integrated with an all-boys' school?!
She meets and falls in love-naturally-with one of the three most popular and handsome boys in the Student Council, Yasuaki Garaku! Unfortunately, Yasuaki doesn't care for girls...and when the girls' Student Council clashes head-on with the boys' Student Council, Hanabi steps in to become a member-hoping she'll change Yasuaki's mind!

My Review:

Hanabi is a girl who is in love with Yasuki Garaku, but poeple around them are coming between their love. One is her childhood friend Takeru Sonon the second is her father who comes in to town for a visit. Hanabi's character gradually develops throughout the rest of the story we learn about her childhood when she went from a crybaby to a strong and fierce teenager who will not take crap from anyone.

This is the ending books of the series and I loved it. The books in the series were page turners and I could not wait to see what happened in the end. The characters were well-developed and interesting. The storyline was fast-paced and never dull. This series had gotten me to love manga and I feel it is a great introduction to this wonderful genre.

I would recommend this for a older teenager who is a newcomer or already a fanatic because it is relatively short series.

I rate this 4.5/5
