I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

The Book Monsters Pick-Your-Thon: Starting Line

Summer Pick-Your-Thon
June 11 to June 16

hosted at The Book Monsters, Starting Line

Welcome bloggers and readers to the Summer Pick-Your-Thon! Both Kate and I are excited to get our reading and blogging on with you this coming week!

So, we're doing some fun things this time around, including a scavenger hunt with all the mini-challenges that will be hosted this week. Each post on our blog or by our mini-challenge hosts will have a letter for you to find at the end. Follow along and find what the letters mean (they won't be in order) and you can have a chance to win a book of choice from The Book Depository! Up to $15.

Make sure to follow along so you can win.

We'll have some other prizes throughout the week as well that you can win just by commenting or linking up to the various mini-challenges.

So to start off, create a post or comment below to answer the following questions.
1. Which thon are you choosing? Readathon, Reviewathon or both? And why?
2. Where are you from? You can be vague or specific, up to you.
3. Say a little bit about yourself so we can get to know you if we don't already!
4. What are you currently reading or about to pick up to read?
5. What are your goals for this Pick Your Thon?

1. I should go for the review-a-thon but I'm going to concentrate on reading with a couple of reviews thrown in.

2. USA. ;-) I live in California in the Los Angeles County area. Which is still pretty vague as LA county is HUGE.

3. SAHM of adult children. Love to read, craft, visit with friends. Learning to love the gym and have a love/hate relationship with my washer and dryer. One husband, two children and two cats. Dang, we need three cats or one of something else ;-)

4. Finished Consent to Kill today (and reviewed) and moved on to Protect and Defend. Both by Vince Flynn with Mitch Rapp as the lead main character.

5. I have a blog tour coming up so I'd like to finish Adam Orser by Daniel Armand and prepare the review. Also Circles of Seven by Bryan Davis and anything in my currently reading section of my Monday post and finish Protect and Defend. I'm also participating in Authors A to Z so I need to keep up with that. um, missed today :(

Glad you're joining us! Looks like you have a great goal you've set. I left mine a bit vague because I'm not sure what this week holds. We are buying a car at some point which takes way longer than I'd ever want it to. :)

Car shopping is a multiply day ordeal.
