    What is your favorite book you read during the read-a-thon?
    Clockwork Angel
    Did you participate in any mini-challenges? Which ones?
    All of them except one which I slept through
    Which mini-challenge was your favorite?
    Where we had to create a puzzle using pictures to describe a book title
    What has been your favorite thing about the read-a-thon?
    The challenges
    Are you satisfied with how much reading you got done? Did you do more than you expected? Less?
    Yea I am, it's more than usual for a weekend. I didn't do as much as I expected since I had other obligations.
    What did you think of the updates? Too close together? Didn't like the time limit?
    The updates were a little close together, maybe every 4 hours would have been better..lol mainly since I was so deep into my book I couldn't stand the fact I had to rip myself away from it ever two hours :)
    If you could change one thing about the read-a-thon, what would it be?
    I enjoyed it all but if I had to be picky just more time between updates.
    Would you participate in another read-a-thon hosted by Squeaky Books? Why or why not? 
    I'd be crazy to say no! I had a blast and of course I would participate in another read-a-thon from Squeaky Books
    Any last comments on the read-a-thon?
    Thanks for hosting such an awesome event It gave me something to do this weekend.
    Mini Challenge #11


    Wow this is a tough one, since all the worlds in every book i've ever read are pretty insane. Since i'm currently reading the Clockwork Angel and loving the world and characters I would say that would be my pick. Although Starcrossed be  on my list as well since I adore Greek mythology.

    Mini Challenge #10


    The first book I read was Chasing Amanda and it was a very serious book about child abduction so nothing inspiring or funny but I am now reading Clockwork Angel and I find myself laughing to some bits and pieces of the dialogue between the characters.

    If you had bookshelves FULL of all of your favorite books, how would you organize 
    them?


    Knowing me I would organize them based on if they are hardcovers,paperbacks,mass paperbacks and than from there I would organize them by series and author.

    I wasn't able to read as much as I wanted to with having to go deal with "the real world" every so often.

    What is the favorite thing you have read today?
    I'm actually enjoying Chasing Amanda by Melissa Foster. It's a genre I don't normally read anymore but it's still an highly addictive read, and very emotional as well.


    Which mini-challenge was your favorite?
    I loved the challenge where we had to create a puzzle using pictures that described a title of a book..VERY FUN!


    What has been your favorite thing about the read-a-thon?
    I loved the creative challenges they were a blast


    What has been your LEAST favorite thing about the read-a-thon?
    Not having all the time in the world to sit and read..life kept calling and calling and I had to answer :(


    Are you on track to meet your goals?
    Umm nope..I'll probably finish two books at the most


    Will you be participating tomorrow? Do you have any new goals?
    Heck yea! My goal is to convince hubby to watch the kids all day haha I wish..I have a birthday party and fathers day to prepare for...

    Mini Challenge #3


    Austin the goat was busy trying to get to the last lime on the lime tree, his mouth watered at the taste of the sour yet delicious lime.

    It just so happens the local shaman who stood at a towering 7 feet was wandering around the country trying to find someone to play laser tag with.

    He saw Austin struggling and approached him with a proposition. "I will get you the lime if you play laser tag with me."

    Austin was ecstatic, not only did he get his lime but he finally got to play laser tag.
