200 Follower Giveaway! Once Upon Update!

Bonjour my peaches!

Wow! Today's post is full.  There's so much going on!

We've got Once Upon a Read-a-Thon update!
We've got a Read-A-Thon mini challenge!
We've got a 200 Follower Giveaway!

Goodness! Let's get started, shall we?

Kindle Fever Read-A-Thon Challenge

This lovely Challenge for the Once Upon a Read-a-Thon adventure is hosted by KindleFever. It would be tremendous of you to go and give KindleFever a look see and participate in her fun challenge if you're a part of the Read-a-thon!

Here's the challenge:

Once upon a time there was a bookish fight…

As the story teller, I now want you to tell me which two characters are fighting and WHY! If you want to, you’re also more than welcome to guess the outcome. ;)

You hear arguing in the distance. You're thinking about passing it by but curiosity gets the best of you and you redirect yourself to the source of the noise. As you turn the corner you find Sookie Stackhouse and Bella Swan arguing animateldly with eachother. Well, at least Sookie is being animated, Bella is just kind of standing there with her arms folded protectively across her chest, shoulders hunched. What are they arguing about? You listen closer. Apparently Bella made a comment about how brutish and dangerous Sookie's Lovebug Eric is. She thinks he can't be trusted to protect Sookie properly.  Sookie is now ranting, somehow politely, about how she'd much prefer a brutish, over protective, viking vampire than a meepy metrosexual one who sparkles like a fairy in the sunlight (though fairies don't actually sparkle... she corrects herself).  Bella turns pink and mutters something about how at least she and Edward can go outside together in the daytime. Sookie huffs before muttering something that sounds like "Skinny little psycho". Then they're both irritably silent. Well...geez.

200 Follower Giveaway!

Once Upon a Read-A-Thon UPDATE

Eesh! One thing after another it seems. I woke up this morning at 6am because of a migraine. I wobbled about the house taking one Advil after the other hoping for a reprieve. I ended up collapsing in the living room chair with a pillow and blanket over my head, trying not to move too much or think to hard.

When the clock struck 8 I realized that the pain was gone enough for me to actually move. Huzzah! Still got an achy head but it's not as bad as it was. Geez!

But Anyway.

I finished "Once Upon a Time Machine", am almost done with "Enchanted Glass" and plan to start "Angel Eyes" tonight. If I can finish that by tomorrow then I'll happily add another title to my challenge.

The added book will be:

Okay my dolls. I want to add up a TRILOGY TUESDAY post, but that might not happen until later. In all honesty it's possible I'll just wait until next week to update that one since there's an extra Tuesday in July anyway!

I hope all of you are having a grand time with the Read-A-Thon. For those of you who aren't playing along, hope you're out reading lots of good books anyway!

Bye for now my dears!
