Jenny @ Juliababyjen’s Reading Room and Dana @ DanaSqaure are hosting a Read- A- thon from December 9th – 22nd called End of the Year 2013 #ReadingCram. So why should we do the readathon!? Well here are a few good reasons:
1. To chisel off some of your TBR pile.
2. Do all the fun challenges and win some prizes.
3. Encourage others to read like a speed demon (and yourself) + reading with others is loads of fun.
It’s definitely a good chance to get those last minute 2013 books we’ve been wanting to read in, so get for the #ReadingCram! For signup & details remember to check our lovely hosts’ blog. There’s also lot of awesome challenges for the days of the RAT & a full list can also be found there.
Alright, so this RAT was totally last minute for me. Hopefully I’m not being overly ambitious, as I have a few finals to study for, but I always tend to read a lot during exam time as a de-stressor anyways so here are my goals!

Puppet masters hidden away, puppets on a string
Agendas, conspiracies, it’s all a game but
Wicked ways are nearing it’s end.
Notorious times are about to begin.
