Once Upon a Read-a-Thon: Update for Day Two and Challenge for the day

Hey guys!  It’s now the end of day two!  I hope you’ve been able to get lots of reading in!  I didn’t read as much today because we did yard work and washed the cars.  But I did start and finish a complete book and I will probably get a decent start onto another one before the night is over.

I finished Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready (278-416)
Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen (292 pages)
The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen (342 pages)

Challenge reminder, here are the challenges for the three days of the read-a-thon:

I did Rebecca’s Challenge at Kindle Fever and Courtney’s Challenge at Stiletto Storytime.
From Kindle Fever:
Once upon a time there was a bookish fight…
As the story teller, I now want you to tell me which two characters are fighting and WHY! If you want to, you’re also more than welcome to guess the outcome. 😉

It doesn’t have to be anything too detailed; we’re here to have fun!

Once upon a time Sage from The False Prince came across Robin from Scarlet as they both swooped in to hock the wares upon a Nobles carriage.  As they both were eager for the jewels they were at a loss as to what to do since they arrived at the same moment.  The decided to work together and then have a duel to see who would win the jewels.  But as they fought the duel Scarlet herself quickly swiped the jewels.  Turns out the duel was a waste of energy as they missed the following carriage which was much more full of jewels than the first!
From Stiletto Storytime:
Below in the comments simply share a foreign author whose work you adore (do this at her blog, not here). I personally am from the United States but we may have readers from all over so just make sure the author you share is from a country other than your own. Tell us why you like them. Are there any books by them in particular that you would recommend? How did you come across their work? The whole point is to share and allow us all to discover a new author that we might otherwise never have been exposed to..to literally open up a whole new world of books for one another.
This is easy for me.  Kirsty Eagar is an Australian author and I absolutely loved Raw Blue.  It’s not available in the US but I was lucky enough to be able to borrow it.  I also read Night Beach, which I didn’t enjoy as much, but LOVED the setting.
