Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon

The Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon is hosted by Rebecca @ Kindle Fever & April @ My Shelf Confessions. It will run from June 20th to June 24th. If you'd like to learn more information on this read-a-thon, please click here.
Yes, I know what you're thinking. "She's participating in another read-a-thon?!" Yes, yes I am. I'm addicted, you see. I can't help but join them once I see them. Sometimes I don't get as much reading done as I'd hoped, but it sure does give me that little extra shove I need ever once in a while. So if you know anymore read-a-thons coming up, do tell me! Anyway, on to my goals!

I'm not sure how much I'll be able to get done within these days, but I'm going to try and at least finish 2 to 3 books.
