Read-a-Thon - Twitter Synopsis Challenge

Finally got the name right!

Anyways, UPDATES:
Number of books read: 1
Number of pages read: 256
Number of pages read today (4:49pm): 0
I decided for my synopsis challenge I would do Just Like Fate by Suzanne Young and Cat Patrick.
Here is the picture and synopsis on Goodreads:
17190935Caroline is at a crossroads. Her grandmother is sick, maybe dying. Like the rest of her family, Caroline's been at Gram's bedside since her stroke. With the pressure building, all Caroline wants to do is escape--both her family and the reality of Gram's failing health. So when Caroline's best friend offers to take her to a party one fateful Friday night, she must choose: stay by Gram's side, or go to the party and live her life.
The consequence of this one decision will split Caroline's fate into two separate paths--and she's about to live them both.
Friendships are tested and family drama hits an all-new high as Caroline attempts to rebuild old relationships, and even make a few new ones. If she stays, her longtime crush, Joel, might finally notice her, but if she goes, Chris, the charming college boy, might prove to be everything she's ever wanted.
Though there are two distinct ways for her fate to unfold, there is only one happy ending...

Here it goes:

Caroline can go to the party or stay with her dying grandmother. 
Either way, we will see both paths and what comes because of her choice. 

How was that? I think that went smoothly and very well.
Thanks for reading, and please comment below!

Read-a-Thon - Spine Challenge

December 12th 2013
I have recently been told it is Read-a-Thon, not Book-a-Thon. +Alex Margaret gave me that information.

Anyways, today I have to create poetry by using spines of books. Here are the rules:

1. You must use book spines to make a poem.
2. For this challenge, you can only use books that you read in 2013.
3. You can include as many extra words in your poem as books that you use. If you used four books for your poem, you can use four extra words.
4. You must post your poem or a photo of your poem and then come back and link it up here.

Here it goes:
I rise from my bed
To go inside the mind of gideon rayburn
You see, it's kind of a funny story
It's this sudden clarity you get when you mix fate and fury
I swear, that this is the almost truth
It is just like fate, you see this weekend is the selection
But now I must leave you in the mist
But I will always be a legend.

I know, it isn't great, but it made me laugh when writing it. Here are the books I used:

Rise by Andrea Cremer
Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn by Sarah Miller
It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini
Clarity by Kim Harrington
Fate and Fury by Quinn Loftis
I Swear by Lane Davis

Read-a-Thon - Top Ten Books Read in 2013

December 11th 2013
My Book-A-Thon continues with the top ten books I have read in 2013!
So far, I have read 52 books and 13,981 pages.
I am extra excited for this post because I have read many great books this year. So lets get right into it!
10. Carrie
Stephen King
Carrie White may have been unfashionable and unpopular, but she had a gift. Carrie could make things move by concentrating on them. A candle would fall. A door would lock. This was her power and her sin. Then, an act of kindness, as spontaneous as the vicious taunts of her classmates, offered Carrie a chance to be normal and go to her senior prom. But another act--of ferocious cruelty--turned her gift into a weapon of horror and destruction that her classmates would never forget.
