Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon 2014

For the first time I will be participating in the Ho-Ho-Ho Holiday Read-a-thon. It is Hosted by Caffinated Book Reviewer & Book Shelfery. It starts November 6 to the 11th. There is challenges, giveaways and twitter chats (##HoHoHoRAT). The Twitter Party is on Sunday November 9, 2014 at 4pm (EST). You HAVE to read one holiday or winter book.

My True Love Gave to Me by Stephanie Perkins

These last two I have been reading for awhile now and I'm not even in the mood for them, but I really want to finish them.

Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk
Spirit Walk by Richie Tankersley Cusick (I want to finish book 1, Walk of the Spirits.)

Here is my store for this challenge, it was MAD LIBS. 
Let`s build the perfect Mr. Snowman! First we need to have a really Bubbly snowstorm, of course on a Elegant day. Watching all that Red snow fall makes me Hug for a bowl of Frosty Turkey! ! it`s still Laughing and there`s a lot of it! Let`s go! Next is Running to go out in the cold. Once that is done, we need to get busy. 

We make a Mother and Walk it in the Mall. It gets so Joyous we can`t roll it anymore. Then we do 22 more and stack them on top of each other. We Swing for Sister in the driveway for the Kitchen, eyes and Brother. We grab a scarf, hat, and a Broccoli to complete Mr. Perfect Snowman Noah! ! he`s done! Finally. Now the best part, Quirky Living Room.

Notes: I really had fun participating in this read-a-thon. I was already ready reading Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk, got that finished. Then I read My True Love Gave To Me and managed to finish it before the read-a-thon finished. I really enjoyed reading it and recommend it. I missed the twitter chat. I'am looking forward to net year. 


  1. I still haven't tried a Perkins novel Ashley. I hope you are having fun reading and trying the challenges. Happy reading and I hope to see you at the Twitter party.

    1. I love Stephanie Perkins, Anna and the French Kiss trilogy. This one has other authors though. I missed the twitter party, haven't been on the internet all day. :(

  2. I didn't know Perkins had a Christmas novel, so I am totally heading to Amazon LOL. I love her writing!

    1. It has short stories with other authors. I wish her story was a book by it self, I loved it.
