New Adult Readathon: Update and Goals

This week the New Adult Readathon hosted by Bookish Treasures and A Daydreamer's Thoughts is taking place. I've been really looking forward to this one because my Kindle is jam packed with NA titles I've been dying to read and this gives me the perfect excuse! This post is a day late because I had a blog tour post yesterday, but I'll try and post throughout the week.

My aim is to read 2-3 books. I have a busy week so I'm not sure how many I'll manage, so that seems like an achievable target!

Possible reads:

Obviously there's a lot more on the list than I'll actually manage to read, but I wanted to have a good selection to choose from. I've included a few non-contemps as well in case I feel I need a switch of genre!

I'll update this post as I go along, as well as linking to any of the mini-challenges I manage to take part in.

Update 1: 23rd July
I'm currently reading Hopeless by Colleen Hoover which I started yesterday, and I'm having mixed feelings. I don't like Holder which I think is going to affect how I feel about the rest of the book. We'll see!

Update 2: 23rd July
I finished Hopeless and did not like it. Oh dear! Well onto the next one... I'm now reading Stitch by Samantha Durante. Looking forward to getting stuck in! The premise seems really interesting so far.

Update 3: 25th July
So yesterday was crazy busy so I didn't get a lot read! I did cheat a bit because I had a library book due back I needed to finish so I had to dive back into that. But now it's done and I'm free to get back to Stitch!

Update 4: 27th July
I've finished Stitch! Still getting my head around it because it was like no book I've ever read. Now onto Between Friends by Amanda Cowen!

Update: 29th July
Well the readathon is over and I've had such a good time! Plus I managed to finish Between Friends yesterday which brings my total up to three books. I'm so happy! I'm glad I got to take part in some mini challenges as well. See my cover redesign here and my synopsis rewrite here. Thanks to Faye and Laura for hosting a great event!


  1. Really great selection.
    Like you I am aiming to read three books.
    Happy reading!

    Ps. Freshman Forty looks really interesting. Where did you find it? I've looked on amazon.co.uk and ibooks but I cant find it.

    1. Good luck with your goal! :D and thank you :) hmm that's strange, I can't find it either! I got it as a Kindle freebie on Amazon a while ago and it's been sitting on my Kindle. Didn't realise it was no longer available! How bizarre. I'll have to do some digging - see if I can find out why :)

    2. From stalking Twitter it looks like the book might have been picked up by a publisher with a rerelease coming later this year. I'll keep my eye out! :D
