Treasure Hunt! #COYER


I am joining the COYER Treasure Hunt!  It runs from run Saturday, June 1 – Saturday, August 31 and has 4 read-a-thons.  


I am going to work on the map!  It will be really aggressive for me to hit the end I think because that is 65 points, but I am going to work on making it to the boat!

This is my first Treasure hunt and first reading challenge with COYER so I maybe muddling through. :) I will be posting my reviews of books here or on Goodreads.

Let me know if you are going to join!

Readathon Mini-Challenge: A Literary Clue

This is a game based on 3 books.  Here is the solution for the Clue for the Clue Challenge


It was Katniss, at Fablehaven, with the Viviann’s Shovel.


Can you guess the books? #literaryclue‬

Dewey's Getting to Know you Survey

Getting to Know You Survey
1)What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Near Cincinnati, OH - it is cloudy and spring here!  It will be 65F!

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
I am not doing a stack this time - just picking whatever I feel like reading from my stack of TBR, all the ebooks on TBR, and the many audiobooks I have.  I will probably read/listen to all this time.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
Coffee - lots of coffee.  Keeping with my inability to plan this time I have snacks but didn't plan anything special other than planning dinner and lunch.  The kids don't like it when they don't get their meals and snacks :)  My hubby is traveling this weekend so I am on my own.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I have 3 kiddos (12, 10, and 5).  Audiobooks are my favorite mode of reading because I tend to spend a lot of time in the car.  
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
I have participated in others but usually only get a couple of hours of reading in.  We have nothing planned today so I am trying to get in more reading.  I am trying to get my kiddos off their tablets to read some too.  :)  I got my 12 year old a new graphic novel and my 10 year old and I will probably read a little together.  The 5 year old will sit and listen to any book he picks so we will probably do that too.  

April 2019 Read-a-thon

This read-a-thon is going to be very impromptu for me!  I have two starter books picked out:

Reading: A Cursed Child; My kiddos have got me re-watching all the Harry Potter movies and I haven't read this one yet so I thought I should.

And since I still have to do things like feed the kids and clean and laundry I have an audio book to listen to while I do that.  The Favorite Sister By Jessica Knoll on Audio. 

If/When these are finished I will pick something else from my massive TBR pile and Kindle!  So many selections!  LOL!  I will probably do some reading with the kiddos too.  Trying to get them participating...but they would rather play on the tablets...
