Read-a-Thon Hours 21 - 24: 3:00 - 7:00

Currently reading: Beach Party by R.L. Stine

Pages read since last update: 190

Total pages read: 975

The Babysitter was so good! I am LOVING these old Point Horror books by R.L. Stine! A lot of people seem to find them cheesy but I honestly find the suspense in them terrifying! There are always so many red herrings that I can't predict at all how it will end. Beach Party is maybe a little too much creepy-guys and too little mysterious-murderer for my tastes, but I'm still definitely getting into the suspense.

End of Event Meme:

  1. Which hour was most daunting for you? The last couple of hours were unusually difficult for me this time around. I'm so ready to go to bed!
  2. Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? I recommend the Point Horror books for some good suspense! And Animorphs are my usual read-a-thon favourites.
  3. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? Nope!
  4. What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? To be honest I didn't really participate online all that much this time.
  5. How many books did you read? I finished 4 books and read about 2/3 of a 5th book.
  6. What were the names of the books you read? In the Time of Dinosaurs (Megamorphs #2) by K.A. Applegate, Pink by Lili Wilkinson, The Departure (Animorphs #19) by K.A. Applegate, The Babysitter by R.L. Stine, and Beach Party by R.L. Stine.
  7. Which book did you enjoy most? The Departure and The Babysitter were both great.
  8. Which did you enjoy least? Probably Pink. I did end up liking it overall but some of the characters really had me groaning in frustration throughout.
  9. If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? N/A
  10. How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? I'll be back again as a reader next time!
