Well, the Read-a-thon’s been over for about 20 minuets now, I didn’t manage to finish even one book due to life and poor choices on my part concerning time management, but that’s okay. I DID finish one book, just, not before the Read-a-thon ended XD The review for Spirit of the Wolf By Linda Star Wolf and Casey Piscitelli will be up in a few moments, once I type it up. XD
Congrats to those who finished a book during the Read-a-thon! It was a blast reading with you all!
Wow, Life’s been hammering away at me lately x.x but All is well! and there’s a Read-a-thon coming up! Dewey’s 24Hour Read-a-thon to be exact! You can find out all about it here. I plan to participate with three books of a longer size. Usually the key to these 24 hour reading challenges is Short books, but I want to get these off my ‘to read’ shelf finally, so my Book Choices are:
- Your Book of Shadows By Patricia Telesco (234 Pages)
- Spirit of the Wolf By Linda Star Wolf and Casey Piscitelli with Art by Antonia Neshev (111 Pages)
- Cleopatra, Empress of the Nile By Rom Miller and Sommer Browning (165 Pages)
That’s a grand total of 510 Pages. I think I can get at least two books down. I think I might be able to get most of the third in as well but we’ll see how it goes tomorrow. :3 Good luck to everyone else taking part in the Read-a-thon!

Bye for now!
I received this book from a Goodreads Firstreads Giveaway.
I didn’t find this book helpful at all. There was way too much repetition in the first half of the book and it focused too much on LinkedIn, and the second half I fell asleep while reading, and couldn’t focus over all the repetition to actually read.
The parts I could read, It read like it was supposed to be an e-book of some kind, with things like ‘click here’. And when it referenced color in images, they should have used color in the images instead of black and white.
Seemed more like a pitch for selling services more then a helpful how-to book, and the ‘ways to find people regardless of their settings on LinkedIn’ was just down right scary. People use those settings for a reason after all.
All in all I think I’ll go to another book. This one was just not well written in my opinion, and down right creepy.
