I love readathons, and , having done the Dewey’s Readathon 3 times, was surprised and pleased to come across this one that is new to me . The Wicked Valentines Readathon. As always, I was looking for a challenge , and reading is a favorite hobby of mine . I wasn’t intentionally looking for a challenge like this, but was researching more to be able to publush my own novel effectively.
Day 1: 7 February 2014 , I signed up to the Wicked Valentine’s Readathon , and I’ll post in this blog during the challenge . Let’s see how far I get. I don’t have a target , just read and see how much I read within the time. I think a Readathon is a good idea for this time of year , and especially leading up to Valentine’s day .
Day 2: I didn’t do much reading today until about 8PM, but have decided that, throughout this readathon , I aim to read more books from my “to- read” list on Goodreads and try to complete more of my Goodreads Reading Challenge 2014. I got the book A Diamond in my Pocket free on Amazon on a limited- time offer , and decided to read it .
When Calli Courtnae breaks the World Record for the 100m, she is invited to Montana to prepare for National tryouts. However, upon arrival using her lip reading ability she realizes she’s been lied to, or at least not told the whole truth. She’s a superhuman, a Runner, and her new world includes transporting packages for other supernatural groups.
She’s paired up with an overly anxious Gothic roommate, is continuously glared down by the gorgeous top-dog, Chris, who feels she doesn’t belong, and is placed on a delivery team to transport a valuable magical diamond to a clan of terrorists who can kill with their thoughts.
Chris, the team leader, is given the diamond, but Calli secretly receives the real stone along with a vision of the future and an explanation of why she was hand selected to carry out the mission. Almost immediately the hidden diamond oozes unprecedented additional powers and abilities in Calli making her more sought after than the diamond itself.
