Monday Maunder: High Summer Readathon Results

Hello on this fine Monday evening!

Last week, I shared with you that I was participating in the High Summer Readathon, a chance to read all week long.  I had high hopes for the week, digging into the All Souls Trilogy, but I sadly did not progress as I had hoped or planned.   Here's a quick peek at what I actually did get accomplished . . .

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness:  452 pages
World War Z by Max Brooks:  135 minutes

It wasn't a bad week of reading, especially considering that Harkness's novel is even BETTER on the re-read and I am savoring it so much.  I cannot wait to finish it in the next couple of days and dive into Shadow of Night and finally, my highly anticipated book of the year, The Book of Life!

I also was almost able to complete my current audiobook -- an intriguing read with a multitude of narrators, and one that is not like the movie AT ALL!!  I will share more of my thoughts in my upcoming review, but I will just say that it was nothing like I expected after seeing the movie first!

This week, I will be continuing with Harkness's novels and catching up on my reviews ... because I am desperately behind and need to catch up if I plan on having anything posted here this week and beyond!  I also really need to read The Fault In Our Stars by John Green because it is for a book club and I need to have it read in one week!

Did you participate in this latest readathon?  How did you do?  What is on your plans this week for reading and/or blogging?


  1. You've already found a new book club in Montana? Or is this an online one?

    1. Charleen Lynette ... It's an online book club actually! It's my constant among all these moves!! :)

  2. I think you did an impressive job. We're all so busy...any amount of reading is impressive, in my opinion. I think I might reread Discovery of Witches again myself.

    Don't forget to add your link to the wrap-up linky. I extended the deadline:

    1. Michelle Miller ... Thank you! I am behind in my blog reading, so I'm using this link to hop over now to link up. :)
