We're giving you a heads-up on what the final challenge of the read-a-thon will be so you get the chance to prepare. We want to know about the places you read this summer, if you went on vacations to a nice place, the beach or a nice reading place in your home. For your last post we want you to show us some pictures of these places, you don't have to be in the pictures. So pick up your books and pick up your cameras for the week, we're looking forward to see your reading places :)

I also have some other upcoming surprise giveaways for all participants! So make sure you are signed up and participate at least once to qualify.

  18. Two characters that I think would make a great couple....donia (wicked Lovely) and Magnus bane (mortal instruments). The date they should go on is to a carnival because I think Magnus would make the carnival extraordinary with his powers
