Morning, morning bookish butterflies!
Hope your spring reading has been flourishing in the sunshine and warm weather! It’s been pretty dim and rainy in my neck of the woods the last few days (reading weather!). But, you know what they say: April showers bring book towers! No. Well…they should.
Speaking of book towers, isn’t time we tamed our vicious TBRs before they topple us? And what better way to do that than with one of my favorite reading challenges: Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon!
Mmhmm…Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is back again!
Hosted by Heather and Andi of The Estella Society, Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is a biannual reading challenge, occurring in April and October. This Saturday, April 6, the fun returns.
For 24 hours, I’ll be joining readers from across the book community (on various social media platforms) and reading a number of books from monstrous TBR (to-be-read) and CR (currently reading) lists, post updates on my progress, and take on mini challenges throughout this event. Basically, I’ll connect with ALL the people that make reading books fun! And possibly win some awesome bookish prizes–even better! You can find out more about how to participate in this readathon here.
My Reading List
So far, this is what my reading list looks like:
Book Love by Debbie Tung
Quiet Girl in a Noisy World by Debbie Tung
In the Neighborhood of True by Susan Kaplan Carlton
Mera: Tidebreaker by Danielle Page
Red River Resistance (A Girl called Echo, #2) by Katherine Vermette
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
From Twinkle with Love by Sandhya Menon
This time around I’m hoping to finish as many current reads as possible (because that list is getting ridiculous). As usual, I’ve included more books than I intend to finish. I like being overly prepared. (^_~)
My plan is to break often and read at a more laxed pace. During breaks, I hope to work on an Bookstagram post and continue discovering new books to read via the YASH (Young Adult Scavenger Hunt)! Because it’s not like my TBR is full enough. Right?
As usual, I’m not really prepared in the food department. But I’ll figure it out. I always do.
Once again, I’m mainly participating as a reader. I’ll try to keep you regularly updated on my progress. If you’re interested in being a reader as well, you can sign up here and comment below.
You can also cheer readers on, volunteer to help out in other ways (like promoting the readathon and/or hosting mini challenges), donate to your chosen charity, or just follow along via social media (on Twitter follow the hashtag #Readathon). What you do and how much you do is up to you. However you participate, you’re sure to have a book-tastic time!
Have Fun and Happy Reading! ^_^
