Dewey's Read a thon

In an effort not to flood everyone's feed with multiple posts from me today, I will be updating this post throughout Dewey's 24 hour Read a Thon! I will be in and out during the day since my weekend is beyond crazy. Don't forget to visit me at the official blog where I'll be co-hosting starting at hour 12!

Let's get this party started...

Goals: read 2 books. No stress. I won't be able to participate as much during the early part of it but will catch up later!

1st Hour Questions: 
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? Florida!
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Too many to choose from. I went a bit overboard.
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? Chips and dip. Wished I had them last time so I made sure to buy some this go round.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! Single mom to two little boys, Cole who is 7 and Ian who is 5.  I hope that I am passing my love of reading on to them.
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? No stressing! I have a terribly busy weekend so I already know I won't be able to read much. I'll read when I can though!

1st Update: Not much to update. Did I mention that this weekend is a bit crazy? Will be reading more once the boys go to their dad's and I'm caught up with the stuff that has to be done today. Hope everyone else is having a great day!

2nd Update: Starting to read! The stuff for tomorrow is basically done and I'll be starting Death Warmed Over by Kevin J. honor of The Walking Dead season premier tomorrow. Whoop! Whoop!

Hour 11 Mini Challenge: Favorite Book Trailer at Jerara.

Without a doubt this is my all time favorite book trailer. Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. Holy hotness, Batman!

Hour 12 Update:
It's halfway over and I've read very little. Sometimes life is that way though, huh? For the next few hours I'll be hosting at the official blog and tweeting on the official Twitter. Be sure to come by to say hi!

Mid-Event Survey:

1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired? Tired eyes but am so excited to be hosting during these hours that I'm full of energy! So much fun!!!
2) What have you finished reading? nothing yet.
3) What is your favorite read so far? see above :-)
4) What about your favorite snacks? Pizza!
5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love! Haven't found any new to me blogs yet but I'm still visiting different ones.

Hour 14 Update:
Can't believe how quickly the time is passing. Having a blast co-hosting and reading and being on Twitter. 

Random Update:
Twitter is a hoot. That is all.
