The Funhouse by Dean Koontz
Omens (Cainsville Book 1) by Kelley Armstrong

Plan of Action:
Monday: Start Dirty Work by Julia Bell read 146 pages
Tuesday: Finish Dirty Work by Julia Bell (35 pages) and start The Funhouse by Dean Koontz read 108 pages
Wednesday: The Funhouse by Dean Koontz 149 pages

Friday:  Omens by Kelley Armstrong read 140 pages
Saturday: Omens by Kelley Armstrong read 145 pages
Sunday: Finish Omens by Kelley Armstrong (114 pages)

Progress & Updates:
Monday: Completed Goal, read 146 pages of Dirty Work by Julia Bell. I haven’t really enjoyed this book much, its been kind of a dull day. Hoping the ending will improve my feelings on this book. Excited to start Funhouse tomorrow.
Tuesday: Today I finished reading Dirty Work by Julia Bell. You can check out my review here. I started reading The Funhouse by Dean Koontz but I was a little short on getting my goal today. I read 92 pages out of the 108 pages I was supposed to read.
Wednesday: I had a few things going on today (clothes shopping for a wedding, hanging out with best friend) So all i got read was 14 pages of Tuesday’s goal and 29 pages of today’s goal. I will get caught up tomorrow and finish The Funhouse by Dean Koontz and hopefully start  Omens by Kelley Armstrong.
Thursday: Okay so I know I said I would catch up today and I almost made it but I didn’t. 😦 I manage to read to page 268 in The Funhouse by Dean Koontz. I really like this book so that’s not the problem. Tomorrow I have some stuff to do so I will be up early waiting around so I plan on having time there to catch up. The Funhouse will be finished tomorrow and Omens will be started. Hopefully I can make it! Not the best start to my Fall reading Challenge, but i have faith I can still turn this around.
Friday: I finished The Funhouse today (44 pages) and will be watching the movie tomorrow. You can check out my review here.  I also finally started Omens by Kelley Armstrong and am enjoying it. I read 51 pages of that.
Saturday: Today I read to page 113 in Omens by Kelley Armstrong (62 pages). I have to read the rest of Omens by Kelley Armstrong on Sunday which is 373 pages. So this probably wont happen, but im going to put a big dent in it at least. If i don’t finish I will go on with next weeks plan while incorporating Omens by Kelley Armstrong until i get it finished.
Sunday: Last day of week one. I made it, sort of… Although i didn’t finish Omens by Kelley Armstrong I did read 175 pages. So even though i didn’t get my goal this week I did manage to read much more then I usually do which makes me happy.  I will be trying to finish Omen’s by staying up late and then I can start Carrie by Stephen King tomorrow. If I don’t finish Omens I will still be reading Carrie by Stephen King, ill read them both at the same time. Check back tomorrow for a look at next weeks book picks and goals/progress.
