Once upon a read-a-thon


Once Upon a Read-a-Thon


Once upon a read-a-thon is hosted by Lori at Pure Imagination, Angela at Reading Angel and Candace at Candace's Book Blog. This is my first readathon I’m taking part in, so I’m quite pumped about it.

These are the books I’ve decided to try and tackle over the three days.



Elemental by Brigid Kemmerer
Storm by Brigid Kemmerer
Spark by Brigid Kemmerer
The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder
Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder
From What I Remember by Stacey Kramer & Valerie Thomas


I know quite a lot right? But I’m hoping with several bloggers/readers taking part too, it will give me the extra encouragement to get through them. However the main thing about this readathon is to have fun (which I’m hoping to do with the Merrick Brothers!). I will try and update my progress in the sidebar on the blog, but you’ll be able to find all of my updates on my twitter here.

If you haven’t yet signed up for this readathon, I think you can still do so here. And if you are taking part in the readathon let me know which books you’ll be attempting to get through!

  2. Ooooo the Elemental series, I really want to read those too Jasprit! I've heard they're ridiculously good and feature some deliciously hot brothers, so I feel like I need to get on the Elemental train and meet them:) Can't wait to see what you think!

  3. The Elemental series is one I want to read myself. ;) Some great-looking read here, Jasprit! Have fun and good luck! :)

  4. Woah, I could never manage this; getting through one a day would be a challenge for me! Thanks for alerting me though, I hadn't heard of this before. And the best of luck with your challenges, Jasprit!<3

  5. Nice selection of books! I'm not sure how many I could get through, but I really do want to try a readathon sometime. I'm gonna have to pass on this one though...

    From What I Remember sounds good.

  6. Wow! I wish you the best of luck, Jas. I'm sure the Merrick brothers will be worth it. I have yet to read my copy of Elemental but hoping to do it soon. I wish I have the time to sign up on Readathons. :(

  7. Go Jasprit! I totally think you can do it. Storm is such a quick read, and although I haven't read it yet, I suspect Spark is the same.

  8. Good luck with your challenge, Jasprit! I could never get through all those in a week, much less three days! But they do look like fabby books so you won't have too big a problem if you really enjoy them! I'm desperate to read the Brigid Kemmerer books - the guys on the covers *sigh* >.< From What I Remember and The Probability of Miracles sound like amazing summer reads too! Thanks for sharing, Jasprit <3

  9. You have to read 6 books over 3 days?! This is why I couldn't ever take part myself! :D But I'll be cheering you on Jasprit! I hope you have fun with this and I can't wait to hear your thoughts on these books later. :)

    1. I was actually going to pick more to read, but realised with work too it would be extremely difficult! I can't wait to get stuck in either! :)

  10. Hehe I LOVE seeing the Elemental books raiding your reading challenge TBR list almost as much as the fact that I love that you're doing this reading challenge -- I love that series and Brigid so much! And I just got my copy of From What I Remember too, so I'll probably read it at the same time as you! I hope that we both fall in love with it :)

    Good luck, J! And have a wonderful weekend! ;) <3

  12. Good luck Jasprit! I wish I could've done this too. I think you'll get through the Elemental series quickly. Storm seemed like a fast read. I haven't read Spark yet, hopefully it's good.

    I can't wait until you read Chasing Brooklyn! I loved that one. It's a verse novel so you'll blaze through it. :)

    1. thanks Rachel! I wish you could have taken part too! I've heard great things about the Merrick brothers so I'm hoping I'll fly through those and I can't wait to meet Nico either ;)

  13. I'm signed up for this readathon as well!! I've done a few readathons, and trust me, Jaspirt, they're always so much fun, AND you get a bunch of reading done! You've got some really great books lined up. =) Storm looks really great, I totally look forward to reading your review of that one!

    Your post reminds me that I need to get my stack organized! I still have no idea what I'm reading. XD

    Good luck, Jasprit! I look forward to cheering you on Twitter. =)

  14. Six books in three days, wow. I'd never manage that, though it might help if I was able to stay off the laptop. Best of luck!!
    Happy Reading :)

    1. Hah I know I think I'll have to stay away from the blog and goodreads otherwise I won't be able to get anything done! :/

  15. Good luck with the read-a-thon! I bet you can get through all of these :)

  16. You have to finish all that in three days? Wow! I don't think I can finish 6 books in 3 days. Haha! Good luck with your read-a-thon Jasprit! I have read Strom, Probability of Miracles and From What I Remember and they were all great and fun read! Hope you like them too. Happy reading Jasprit. :D

  17. Good luck with the read-a-thon. I participated in one for the first time a few weeks ago and it was so much fun. It motivated me to read the books I've been avoiding so I'm taking part in this one as well.

    You have quite the book list there, I might only be able to do like 3 books and that's ambitious for me. xD Have fun reading. :)

  18. Good luck, Jasprit! I've heard many readers get addicted to those brother books--I haven't tried them yet. I did one readathon and coincidentally, I read an arc of Probability of Miracles during it:) I am so curious what you will think of that one. I had a hard time with it and never even reviewed it. So I will be especially interested to see your review. I hope you write one!

  19. Good luck, Jasprit! I love the book list, especially since it's all of the Elemental series which I've been wanting to read for a while! I wish I could take part... I would if I didn't have a ton of tests in college. Six books in three days would be an awesome challenge! :o)

  20. I forgot I had From What I Remember, it looks the a good read-a-thon choice. Fun and potentially a quick read. I might have to try and sneak it in. Good luck and happy reading!
