As of Sunday August 13th, I will be a Knight. Okay, so not really just while a readathon is happening. I don’t take part in them often but lately I have been in the mood to and I saw someone post about this one and it sounded like fun.
You can go here to read more about it. I’ll try to do updates throughout on here as to where I am with the books. I have tried to come up with books for each of the characters but I’m going to start with the Knight and do some of the side challenges while I try to do challenges for the other characters. (more…)

Description – When sixteen-year-old Ella Andrews’s best friend, Avery, goes missing, she’ll do anything to get him back—starting with punching the no-brain cop who couldn’t care less about the disappearance. Ella’s convinced Avery’s been kidnapped, and she tries everything to find him—even fol-lowing a strange shadow to another world where the constellations are real-life figures in the sky. But three star groups have fallen and are destroying the world. The fallen constellations are not the only enemy. Melanie, the princess of Stellaris, is forcing Ella, Avery, and an army of other kids kidnapped from their world to fight the rogue con-stellations, even as the land is draining away their life. The longer they stay, the more they fade into substanceless shadows—a fate worse than death. Can Ella save Stellaris before there’s nothing left of her and Avery?
Description: This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded. The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit. But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it’s clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again. Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

Description:If you live for people’s acceptance, you’ll die from their rejection. Two-time Grammy winning rap artist, Lecrae, learned this lesson through more than his share of adversity—childhood abuse, drugs and alcoholism, a stint in rehab, an abortion, and an unsuccessful suicide attempt. Along the way, Lecrae attained an unwavering faith in Jesus and began looking to God for affirmation. Now as a chart-topping industry anomaly, he has learned to ignore the haters and make peace with his craft. The rap artist holds nothing back as he divulges the most sensitive details of his life, answers his critics, shares intimate handwritten journal entries, and powerfully models how to be a Christian in a secular age. This is the story of one man’s journey to faith and freedom. (more…)
