Now I am going to start Frostbite!
9:00pm: Well, I have listened to a full disc of my audiobook today during my commute to and from work. On the one hand, I feel like I am just flying through Game of Thrones. But then I realize I have only listened to the equivalent of 25 pages! Oh well. It is now halftime of the National Championship, and if we didn’t have people over I would be picking up my book right now. THIS GAME IS SO BORING!

Tuesday, January 8th:
A little before midnight: I went ahead and did my stats for day one 20 minutes early. I am going to probably fall asleep reading in bed now. Goodnight! See you on Twitter tomorrow night!
9:45pm: Well, I came home from work and took a two hour nap. I have just been so tired today–I may be getting sick again. =( But I did manage to read some at work today, which is good. And I have been listening to Game of Thrones while chatting on twitter and completing some challenges today. So the day is not yet wasted!
12:05am: Finished Frostbite! Would have finished before midnight but hubby distracted me with National Championship shirts. Oh well!
Wednesday, January 9th:
12:06am: Well, I need to take a moment to let The Vampire Academy series developments sit with me, so I am going to switch gears and pick up another Judy Blume book…SUPERFUDGE!
5:00pm: Just got back from seeing The Hobbit in IMAX 3D. It was AWESOME! If you have a chance to go see it in IMAX 3D, take it! The filming is brilliant, and you get to see the super extended sneak peak at Star Trek: Into Darkness! Anywho, I did bring my book with me and finished it before the movie started, so Book Three is complete! Now I am reading Fudge-a-Mania!
Time for today’s Challenge via Booking In Heels!
Page 48 Challenge: “‘Yoo hoo, yoo hoo, boys……’ She waved at us. ” (From Fudge-a-mania)
Oh, this will be fun…haha
“Yoo hoo, yoo hoo, boys…” She waved at us. We stopped, waiting for her to try and catch up, her high heels catching in the cracks on the sidewalk. She was beautiful, with long red hair and a perfect complexion–the most beautiful woman I have ever laid my eyes upon. Matt rolled his eyes, and suddenly I wished he wasn’t standing next to me. She was his sister, after all.
7:00pm: Finished Fudge-a-Mania! Today’s plan of getting through a bulk of my Judy Blume goal seems to be working! Now off to cook some pork fried rice for dinner before the twitter chat in an hour!
11:30pm: After the twitter chat, I settled down to read Double Fudge, which I have just finished. That may be a record for me haha! 3 books in one day! Whoooo! Now to write up my Judy Blume part one blog post for tomorrow….

Daily Challenge! Book Spine Poetry @ Escape Through the Pages!

2:00am: Well, so much for going to bed early. I was trying to read until I went to sleep, but instead I have read another 150 pages of Shadow Kiss. Now I need to go to sleep! I’ll finish tomorrow!
1:45pm: Finished Shadow Kiss on my lunch hour. Am very upset. Why did people make me read this?!…
I have checked out the last three books in this series. Looks like I will be reading it straight through after all. BAAAAH! On to Blood Promise.
6:00pm: Another disc of AGoT listened to on my commute to and from my far away library job. I was planning on maybe watching a movie tonight, but A) I am super tired and B) Now I have to keep reading in Blood Promise to not be so upset lol.

7:35pm: I finished Blood Promise. I am less upset after that book LOL. It is now time to do some major cleaning/organizing in my house (that I may have been neglecting all week long haha) so I will listen to my audio book while doing it! =)
11:00pm: Decided to go ahead and start Cloud Atlas now that I am at a resting place in Vampire Academy (I have too many feelings right now to continue! I need a little break!). I read the first three pages and found 20 unfamiliar words and allusions. This is going to be a hefty read, but at least it’ll help me study for my MAT lol!
