Bout of Books Day 4 ~ Start of Day

Morning all!!

It's a dreary and rainy day here. My poor hubby had someone kindly run him back home to change after he walked in the rain to work. :( He was soaked. I woke up when he got out of bed (just before 6) and couldn't fall back to sleep, so here I am up and early and ready to find a good read to start the day. My reading, once again, has already begun for the day. I got into bed even a little earlier last night because my internet went out and I once again listened to an audiobook before falling asleep. When I was looking into new audiobooks, I was looking up celebrity done ones, since I had just listened to Inkspell with Brendan Fraser. This time, I chose to do the Lemony Snicket series, which was mainly read by Tim Curry.

As for today's reading, I believe I am going to start out with Hero by Alethea Kontis. Read 18% (55 pages) and not in the mood for it, so going to go ahead and move on, instead of reading a book I'm not into at the moment. 2nd, The Perfect Murder by Brenda Novak.

First up, challenge! :) This one is a Spell-it-Out Challenge from Kimberly Faye Reads. This one was easy for me, as recently with my online book club at Swap-Bot, I did this exact challenge. We were able to use authors as well, so I changed a few of them from what they were when I did the challenge to other things. Since I'm using what I already did, I'm also using a Spell-it-Out of the internet user name I use everywhere, which is ~ ImzadiRose. :) All these are books I've read and, with the exception of Zoo, most are 5 star reads, with a couple 4 star. :)

I ..... Imzadi by Peter David
M.... Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
Z..... Zoo by James Patterson
A..... All the Pretty Girls by J.T. Ellison
D..... Disney After Dark by Ridley Pearson
I ..... If Only by Cherise Sinclair
R..... Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
O..... One by One by Chris Carter
S..... Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
E..... Escape from Mr Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein

    1. Awesome!! :) They are all great, though the last 4 are my favorites of the group.

  2. I absolutely love Ready Player One. Such a fantastic book.

    1. It is one of my all time favorites! :)

  3. Good morning and happy reading! Love your spell it out challenge! :)

    It's rainy and dreary here, too. I just want to go home and curl up with my book!!

  4. I may have to check out the audio for Lemony Snicket now. I am a big fan of Tim Curry. I imagine he fits that narration just perfectly. Keep kicking butt on the BoB! I'm totally jealous of your stats. :) Elle @ Erratic Project Junkie

  5. Oh no! Poor your husband! Great reads on your challenge!

  6. Thanks for playing along with my Spell It Out Challenge!

    Kim @ kimberlyfaye reads

  7. Awesome job! I was so intimidated by my "long" name I didn't participate. Yours though gives me inspiration, but since day 4 is over already, I guess I'll be just doing it for me :)

    Also, completely random, but I was trying to remember Ready Player One's title all day and after seeing your post I finally remembered. So thanks for putting me out of my misery :)

    Good luck with the readathon!

  8. Great choices and awesome name! Good luck with the rest of the read-a-thon!
