My very ambitious TBR pile

My very ambitious TBR pile

I am three hours into the read-a-thon and I am being dragged down by a terrible headache. So I am taking a short break to get this post up and then I will dive nose first back into the book I am currently reading. I know this post was supposed to go up before the read-a-thon started, but rules are there to be broken right? This is the pre-party post which just requires me to answer some questions:

1.What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I am reading from the town famous for its white sand beaches and the majestic Table Mountain; Cape Town, South Africa!
2. Which book in your book stack are most looking forward to?
Well apart from my current read which I am thoroughly enjoying, The Young Elites, I am really looking forward to reading Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire!!
3. Which snack are you most looking forward to?
My husband has appointed himself as my cheerleader and snack provider, so I am looking forward to endless cups of tea and a surprise meal he is cooking up in the kitchen (it smells yummy!!)
4. Tell us something about yourself!
I have the heart of a little bookworm, but I crave adventure – I think you could call me an adrenaline junkie. If I am not losing myself in a good book, then I can be found day dreaming of my next blood pumping, thrill inducing activity to cross off my bucket list!
5. If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s the one thing you’ll do differently? Or if this is your first time, what are you most looking forward to?
This would be my first time taking part in this challenge, and I am most looking forward to connecting with people across the world who are also participating in this read-a-thon.

I was planning to make use of all my social media platforms, but it seems I am paying more attention to Instagram. So if you are interested in following me, or if you feel like giving me a cheer for motivation; then please check out my Instagram account:

    Your Readathon TBR stack looks like tons of fun – hope that headache goes away so you can enjoy it to the max. That’s pretty awesome that your hubby is taking on being cheerleader and cook. I’m curious about that surprise meal. Have a great day and keep up the great reading! =D

      Aaaah I am so jealous!!! I really enjoyed The Young Elites, and I am angered by how it ended, knowing full well that I will have to wait some time before its available on SA bookshelves! I had to sleep the headache off which means I lost a lot of time. Fingers crossed that I read atleast one more book finish πŸ™‚ thanks for reading Xo

    Hour 21 – you own this read-a-thon! No book too long, no print too small. Turn those pages! Burn through those books! Finished one? Start another! Hit those books!

    Oh, and treat yourself to something – you’ve earned it!

    Haha awww, it’s so sweet that your husband was your personal cheerleader for the day πŸ˜€ Which books did you end up reading? I finished The Queen of the Tearling (I was already half way through) and was actually so happy with that haha. I would love to be able to read all day, but it’s very unlikely for me! I hope you enjoyed the day and your surprise meal πŸ˜€

      Hi Sarah! Thank you for visiting πŸ™‚ I ended up finishing the Young Elites which I really enjoyed! And then I read a little bit here and there from different books because I just could not focus on one 😦 haha yes he was so supportive about the whole thing which made it that much more fun! I am really looking forward to the next one! If I had a job that required me to read books all day everyday then I would be a VERY happy camper! πŸ™‚ Xo Thanks again for the comment, hope you visit again soon
