Abducted by Readathon hours 9-12

Okay I finally finished The Jane Austen Book Club!

Tonight I am going to the very first meet up for a book club that my friend Shavonne has put together. She said that she wanted our first book to be a book about a book club. So I recommended The Jane Austen Book Club because I loved the movie version so much. Unfortunately, having never read the book, I had no idea it was so......difficult? boring? mundane?

Anyway, this time yesterday I had only managed to read a couple of pages...literally. Then last night I read the first 100 pages and I managed to read the rest of the 250 pages today during readathon.

I wish I hadn't saved it for today because I would have liked to jump around to some other books whenever this one became tiresome, but I had to push through it! I just had to!

During the last few hours I also managed to finish Fade by Lisa McMann! It wasn't quite what I expected but still very good! I can't wait to get the last book in the series and find out how it all ends!

Now we are coming to the end of hour 12 and while I am getting ready to go to book club I am listening to the audio version of Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen. It is about 8 hours long and I had already listened to an hour of it prior to today. I don't intend to finish this one but it should make for a good listen while I'm getting ready.

I'm hoping book club doesn't last too long, but since it is our first meet up, I'm really not sure how long it will go. But I'll be back reading as soon as I can! Good luck to everyone else and Happy Reading!

That's so disappointing to hear that The Jane Austen Book Club was so boring. I love the movie.

Have fun at book club tonight! I hope it's a smashing success :)

I hope you have a good time at book club even if you didn't like the book.

I've managed to finish one book :) I hope you get to the rest of your good books when you get back!

I'm assuming that you fell asleep since you haven't updated in a while. I'm still up! It's 3:41 and I'm still up! It's crazy! I'm not getting much reading done but I'm still commenting! I hope you got that John Green novella done!
