So while I still have a nearly an hour left before my final day in this read-a-thon draws to a close, I am going to rest it here I think and call the end for me. While sometimes I can handle doing two weeks of read-a-thons, apparently this is not one of those times. I feel extremely sleep deprived, always having to be up with the sun and staying up late so I can actually get some reading done in the day. This plus the stress of hating my job and family issues that have been happening its taken a toll on me and I feel just destroyed and unwell. Having pushed through Half Bad must not have helped, because it made me feel like stopping earlier.

So today, day 7, I call a bust because I decided to go have a bit of fun and take my best friend, her little sister and her little friend to Dreamworld for the day. It was awesome, so I don’t feel bad about not spending the day reading. I finished 3 out of the 4 books I planned on reading, and I got half way and more through a couple of other books as well which adds up. So yay me! I also really liked taking part in all the challenges <3

So here are my end results:

AYearAThon is a read a thon that happens each month throughout the year with different themes. You can find the goodreads group here.

Since I haven’t done a read-a-thon in ages I am back again for another theme for the year-a-thon! November’s theme runs from the 3-9. There doesn’t seem to be a specific time in which this starts, I am starting the clock at midnight my time. This months theme is:

Im Back :D

So as those of you who read my blogs I took time off from reviewing because I needed to focus on my studies. But I have now completed my written work and am moving onto my work experience which means I have time to read again! I tell you, I was going a bit nuts, I need to read. 

So what else have I done while I have been away. I got seriously sick to the point were I couldnt move or eat or really drink anything for over a week. I saw despicable me 2 (it was awesome). I had my birthday and saw The Wolverine (it was stupid). Then it was my boyfriends birthday and we saw Now You See Me (it was enjoyable enough). Amongst all that there were some dinners out with his family and lots of homemade cakes. 

To celebrate no more written work I went and saw the band Flyleaf live. They were totally amazing. Then last night I saw P!nk live which was just out of this world. If you like P!nk, or even if you are open to going to random concerts, go to one of her shows. She really entertains. There were at least 3 songs where she didnt touch the ground at all, there were people shooting and spinning all over the place. What have you guys been up to? 

Anyway expect reviews to start coming up within the next week.
