My second Read-a-Thon day went really well! I read for about 5.5 hours. Last night, Day 1, I started Not Ordinarily Borrowable by Thomas Thurman. I finished that this morning. It only took me about an hour total to read it. Next I started on The Turning: What Curiosity Kills by Helen Ellis. I really ended up liking that one. It wasn't that long, so it only took me a couple of hours. I spent the majority of my reading time starting Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. I'm about 1/4 of the way through, and it's fine so far. I've heard it doesn't really pick up 'til later, so I look forward to that. I'll be starting White Cat by Holly Black tomorrow instead of starting with Before I Fall because I remembered White Cat was for a tour!

My Mini Challenge Entries:
1. Hosted by Lauren at Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf
Lauren asked us to pick our favorite book we've read during the read-a-thon and write a short review for it.
I really enjoyed Zillah's Gift by Lois West Duffy. I was surprised at the connection I felt towards Zillah, as the novella was only 120 pages long. Duffy created a rich and unique setting, unlike any I've encountered before. Even if you're not religious, this is still a great book to pick up, especially for middle grade readers.
2. Hosted by Jessica at Confessions of a Bookaholic
Jessica has asked us to answer the following questions:
1. Tell me what makes you the most emotional when you read it in a book.
I get really emotional when a main character or their love interest is dying, or when a couple is absolutely perfect for each other, but can't be together.
2. What book has made you the most emotional?
3. Hosted by Cynthia at A Blog About Nothing
Cynthia asks us to tell her which book we would love made into a movie, and who we would want to play the main role(s).
I would love to see A Northern Light turned into a movie. I think Emma Watson would make a great Mattie.
