Hour 8: 

Mini challenge - Character Cheering hosted by Love Laughter and a Touch of Insanity  

It's Hour eight 
Don't hesitate 
Don't despair 
Go ahead and share 
That picture you just took
Of that amazing book 
Get a second wind 
& make it to end!
Challenge: Show It Off hosted by Deadbookdarling

I don't have any books I am more proud to own than any other. I love all my books. But I do have an autograph book I take to signings and I love it. I have many YA authors signatures, some even more than once. I absolutely love meeting authors. So this I am most proud of.... 


Hour 9: 

Started reading.... just a few pages though.

What Is Hidden

Challenge: OF Food and Books hosted by  A Girl That Likes Books 

I am not a cook, my daughter is and she collects cookbooks. So I am using a Hunger Games Cookbook for this challenge. 

Fall means soup to me sooo here is a soup recipe that sounds yummy.... I haven't tried it but I will hopefully soon. 

District 13's Rejuvenating Beef  Stew: 

 A mouth watering beef stew that contains sirloin steak, lots of yummy spices, potatoes, onions, celery and carrots...oh don't forget the turnip. 

Something that is made from fresh veggies and some delicious meat on a cold day while getting ready for a rebellion. Sounds just right. 

Hour 10: 

About a third way through What is Hidden. Reading this book much quicker and I think I finally have my groove. 

Challenge: Recommend me a Book hosted by  Cautious

I recommended Breathe by Sarah Crossan - . Its a great survival story with a bit of conspiracy in the pages. A story about friendship, love, and sacrifice. I think you should give this one a go on your next read.

Hour 11: 

Challenge- Beloved Books hosted by Stacy's Books



Here are my guesses

Guess How Much I Love You 
Llama Llama Red Pajama 
Three Little Pigs 
Harry the Dirty Dog 
Green Eggs and Ham 
Harold and the Purple Crayon
Where the Wild Things Are 
The Very Busy Spider 

Here is my picture: I may have covered up a bit too much but our leaves such. They were a little hard to work with. 

Hour 12:
