Out With A Bang FINAL DAY

This is it, the final hours of the readathon. I'm going to miss this! I had so much fun, and finally got to read some of the books I have been eye-balling for months. I'm so happy I did, too. Yesterday I finished 13 to Life by Shannon Delaney, I now see what all the fuss was about. It was downright addicting. Then I started Temperature: Dead + Rising by Adam Santo, a brand-spanking-new (am reading the Proof copy) story. This one I fell asleep reading (another long day) and it actually gave me nightmares. Santo has such a unique voice, the story is almost poetic. It kind-of has that old literature feel to it, but it's very contemporary. I can't express how grateful I am he gave me a copy of this! On to business...

Today's mini-challenge hosts are:

Co-Host Casey at The Bookish Type is giving away the Iron Fey trilogy (yes, all 3 books!) as well as some sweet swag.

And, don't forget to post your final page count on Book-Savvy. Whoever has the highest page count wins their choice of 2 of the following:

1) Journal with a 2 page hand-written message from Kristina McBride
2) Signed bound proof copy of Temperature: Dead + Rising by Adam Santo
3) Signed audiobook of The DUFF by Kody Keplinger
4) Final copy of Tyger, Tyger by Kersten Hamilton
 2nd place will get the remaining 2 prizes and 3rd place will get lots and lots of swag, some signed!

Tonight from 10 pm to Midnight EST we will be having a Twitter party to dish on what we read, what we wish we had gotten to, our favorite mini-challenge, the most difficult mini-challenge, etc...
Ponder your answers and join us using the hashtag:
We'll be giving away:
13 to Life by Shannon Delaney, 
Nevermore by Kelly Creagh bookmarks (some signed), 
and a $10 Borders gift card!
Only readathon participants will be eligible to win and by participants I mean you MUST have signed up and read and entered a few of the giveaway's also. 

And finally, please write a review for the books you completed. It doesn't have to be complicated or in-depth, just what you got out of the story and how you felt about it. The Bookish Type's giveaway is based on this, so read her giveaway post. If you aren't a blogger, post it on Goodreads or e-mail it to me and I'll post it for you. All reviews will be linked to by Book-Savvy with due credit given to you. I hope to see some interesting stuff. 

SO, GO READ!!!  
See you tonight on Twitter.  
Have a safe and happy New Year!!!
