Wicked Valentine's Read-a-Thon update

Hello, all! A Wicked Valentine's Read-a-Thon update here. (I posted my first update to the intro Read-a-Thon post but decided to do an actual update post today.)


So the Read-a-Thon is ongoing through Monday, which means I have more time but it also means that I needed to add to my list! Here was my starting list:

This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash
Fates by Lanie Bross
Fire by Sara B. Elfgren and Mats Strandberg
The Taste of Apple Seeds by Katharina Hagena
White Space by Ilsa J. Bick

And after finishing White Space on the 9th, I got rolling pretty good (White Space and Fire were both doorstoppers so I did expect them to take a bit longer). Here's where I am as of today:

2/14 Update -
This Dark Road to Mercy completed (232 pages)
Fates completed (366 pages)
Fire completed (692 pages)

Which means that all I have left from the list is The Taste of Apple Seeds, possibly the shortest title there! Unfortunately like its predecessor Fire left me with a massive book hangover. Urgh. And so this called not only for desperate measures (a potential book slump to avert as well as bulking up the list to get me through the weekend). Sadly my first potential add on is so far a DNF so I will not mention that title here, but here are the others:

Things Withered by Susie Moloney (shorts) - 56/280 completed
Conquest by John Connolly and Jennifer Ridyard

You are doing great! Fates is on my to read for this thon as well! And you are right White Space really is a doorstop - I sent that one along to April and she said she hasn't been able to get into it.
