Wicked Valentine’s Read-a-Thon Vol. 2 - Starting Post

The Wicked Valentine’s Read-A-Thon is a time when we all get together to dedicate the days of February 7-17 to as much reading as possible. You read as much as you can in order to get yourself a little further through that huge to-read pile! We know real life gets in the way and even if you can’t participate more than one day, you’re welcome to join in on the fun! - My Shelf Confessions

Okay, I yielded and signed up for this read-a-thon. I shouldn't, because I've been having a few busy and tiring days and I will be having some more next week... but hey, I can't pass up a RAT, I guess. I'll be modest with my goals, though. I like that I have more than a week to read in this read-a-thon, so I'll establish the goals I'd probably go for if this was just a week-long, for that purpose of modesty. No pressure.

My goals:
  • To read every day, and to read for at least an hour
  • To enter some challenges
  • To update my progress every day, or most likely, every day I enter a challenge
  • To read 2 or 3 fiction books, and mix it up with a few comic books/manga, or a few short stories/novellas

As for the books I'd like to read, I may or may not read books from this pile. But I'd really, really, like to read books from this pile. I know I'm being vague, but I like to keep my options open.
  • A Mad, Wicked Folly, Sharon Biggs Waller
  • Boundless, Cynthia Hand
  • Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You, Peter Cameron [Portuguese edition]
  • The Edge of Never, J.A. Redmerski [Portuguese edition]
  • Letters from Skye, Jessica Brockmole [Portuguese edition]
  • The Ocean at the End of the Lane, Neil Gaiman [Portuguese edition]
  • Pivot Point, Kasie West

Pivot Point is being read for a read-a-long with a friend, so I'll probably read only part of it.

To everyone who is entering the read-a-thon, good luck with your goals, and have fun!

  1. Aah! :)
    O teu Boundless é muito giro, e gordo.

    1. É tão shiny! :D E sim, é grandão... mas pronto, os americanos também fazem os livros com uma letra gigante, isso explica muita coisa. xD

  2. I loved Pivot Point! I hope you enjoy it.
    Happy reading!

    1. Thank you, Alexa. :D So far I'm loving it, I really like the parallels the author is drawing between the two "timelines". ;)
