Breathless Reads Tour Mini Challenge

On February 25th, the Breathless Reads Tour is making a stop in Raleigh, N.C. With it being only about an hour and a half away, and on a Friday, there is no way I'm not going! The only problem is, I've been an absolute complete slacker, and have not read any of these fantastic books yet, though all of them were on my 2011 tbr list. I can't in good conscience go to a book signing (and my very first one at that!) and not have read the books by all the attending authors, thus my "mini-challenge" was born.

My goal is to read all five books by all five attending authors by February 24th. This should theoretically give me about two and a half days per book. I'm confident I can get this done, and maybe even have time to spare! I'm going to use this little challenge to also have some stocked up book reviews to post, in case I'm running a little low. And, lucky me, a couple of these fill other challenges I've signed up for. I'll be reading them in this order (decided at random):

  • Matched by Ally Condie (started 2/11/11; finished 2/13/11)
  • Across the Universe by Beth Revis (started 2/13/11; finished 2/14/11)
  • Nightshade by Andrea Cremer (started 2/14/11; finished 2/16/11)
  • The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff (started 2/17/11; finished 2/20/11)
  • The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller (started 2/20/11; finished 2/24/11)

I'll be posting links to reviews on this post once they're written, as well as start and finish dates. Wish me luck!

  1. The only one I need to read is The Eternal Ones. I don't know if I'll get to it or not...

    Maybe I'll see you there! I'm going to be the "official blogger" for Penguin. So excited about it!

  2. I've had Nightshade, Replacement, and Eternal Ones for months. I feel bad that I haven't read them before this. :-P

    That is so exciting! Congrats! I'm definitely stoked to be going. It's my first author event ever, and it's five fantastic authors at once. I'm probably going to be overwhelmed. XD

  3. I'm going too! I've got all the books but still need to read Across The Universe, Matched and The Replacement! I am 2 hours away- are you near Charlotte?

  4. I've only got Replacement and Eternal Ones left at this point. And I'm about an hour and a half away, except in the opposite direction, lol! I'm further east, closer to the Pamlico River.
