High Summer Read-a-thon

Insatiable & Overbite Giveaway
When Lighting Strikes & Codename Cassandra Giveaway

Time for another read-a-thon!
Much like last week I'm aiming for quarantine; which didn't workout the way I planned but I did finish 2 books so maybe there's something to it.

Second times a charm.
I'm looking forward to a lot of reading. So really like any other week.

I'm really excited to be reading The Second Empress: A Novel of Napoleon's Court
The Second Empress: A Novel of Napoleon's Court
I'm already a chapter in. I had to fight myself over the weekend to finish my other book before I got back to it.

I doubt I'll get to anything else, I'm fully devoting myself to this one for this read-a-thon, unlike other times. But in case things change I'll also be trying The Great Gatsby.
And of course since I can never leave well enough alone, The Canterville Ghost, that's just because I never finished and I just realized how short it is.
I plan on using it towards my Summer Reading challenge goals.
And The Great Gatsby will go well with the Those Books I should Have Read challenge, which I have not touched these 6 months.


  1. Love Michelle Moran's books and am definitely looking forward to The Second Empress. The Great Gatsby is a fantastic book although I'm not quite sure about the Gatsby movie coming out. Good luck w/your reading!

  2. Glad you're joining me again, Diana! Great list! I'm coveting that Michelle Moran book. ;O) Enjoy the reading this week!
