Squee!! i’m soo excited! About a month ago, the gals at Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon decided they were going to try a spontaneous summer reverse read-a-thon! What’s a reserve read-a-thon, you ask? Well, instead of starting at 8am on a Saturday morning, we are kicking off the festivities at 8pm on a Friday evening. Now admittedly, its been a long week at work – and I don’t see myself making it through the night – but damn, if i’m not going to try!!!
Like I normally do for a Dewey Read-a-Thon – i’ll be posting periodic updates on my reading – right now i’m thinking about every 6 hours, but we’ll see how things play out and how much reading I get done. I’ll also be posting pictures of books i’m reading on twitter, tweeting various random musings as I read (there is some legit punch-drunk tweeting that goes on at 3am during a read-a-thon 🙂 ) and of course, random dog pictures! (what more could you ask for!)
Here is my starting list for reading (yes, these are all books I have in progress…I might have a touch of book ADD…):
The Quiet Game – Greg Iles (legal suspense, starting at pg25)
Ocean’s Light – Nalini Singh (paranormal romance, starting at pg 43)
Unbound – Neal Schusterman (YA dystopia, starting at pg 21)
The Darkest Minds – Alexandra Bracken (YA dystopia, starting at pg 112)
Driven Snow – Tara Lain (m/m romance, fairytale retelling, starting at pg 97)
Death at La Fenice – Donna Leon (mystery, starting at pg 146)
The Ghostwriter – Alessandra Torre (contemporary thriller, starting at pg 43)
Zodiac – Romina Russell (YA fantasy, starting at pg 22)
The Girl in the Spider’s Web – David Lagercrantz (Nordic noir, audiobook, starting at 6:11:45)
What about you guys? who is joining in the read-a-thon and what is on your pile?
