…Home

It’s been a few weeks since I came home from the hospital. I am so glad that I was able to get 5 home PT (physical therapy) visits, so almost two week’s worth. The day after my last home PT session with J*, I had my outpatient PT evaluation with M* who was one of my primary physical therapists from when I went to Sports Rehab* previously.

Wrap Up: Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon

I had great fun participating in my first read-a-thon. I actually read one and a half books in two days! :-) Both were ebooks I had received through NetGalley. I read a total well over 640 pages during this event. I’m not mentioning the titles at the moment while I decide whether to publish reviews for one or both of them. A big thank you to April at My Shelf Confessions, Bex at Kindle Fever, and all the mini challenges hosts for a great read-a-thon!

Mini Challenges: Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon


I participated in my first mini challenge last night at A Book and A Latte where I had to answer the question of what is my favorite Horror/Thriller movie made from a book. Here is what I wrote: “I don’t like horror books or movies, so glad thrillers are an option as well. My favorite has to be the Robert Redford  film Three Days of the Condor. I did like the Bourne movies, preferred Angels & Demons (movie) to The Da Vinci Code (movie) but liked the books reversely.”

Today is the last day of the Read-a-Thon and I’m partaking in The Book Monsters‘ mini challenge of Read in Pictures where you use pictures to describe different things in the book or the title. This is the first time I’ve ever done something like this. Below are four pictures that make up the titles of two books that I’m reading during this weekend. Can you guess what books I’m reading? Please leave a comment with your guess! Who will be the first one to guess correctly?

I’m a bit late to the party as this started yesterday and ends tomorrow evening. Bex at Kindle Fever and April at My Shelf Confessions are the ones hosting this reading fest.

Anyone who has access to facebook or twitter can participate (no blog required) and their be prizes for participating and challenges along the way! While this is a Halloween themed Read-a-Thon there is no restriction to only Halloween/spooky/creepy books There is even a hashtag on twitter just for this event! #WWReadathon

If you decide to also participate the linky list closes in just over an hour and a half from now. Also please leave a comment with what you’re reading! Hope everyone is having a great weekend and Happy Reading!

Review: Tempest by Julie Cross

 

Tempest by Julie Cross
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Tempest is the debut novel of author Julie Cross. It is a story about discovering whether it’s possible for time travel to alter the course of life changing events. The main character is Jackson Meyer, a 19 year old whose world is turned upside down when he sees his girlfriend killed right before his eyes. At first I found it a little bit confusing as I tried to wrap my head around the ‘jumps’ in time that Jackson makes, especially since his age, 19 in 2009, doesn’t change no matter what year he goes back to. Luckily, once I was able to keep the current year straight I began to really ‘get into’ and enjoy the story.
