Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon: TBR

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon: TBR

The weather is terrible, I have a cupboard full of snacks and some delicious treats in for dinner this evening and a ginormous stack of books.  That can only mean one thing: it’s readathon time!

My stack of books is a real mixture of genres so that there’s something for whatever mood might strike during the 24 hours.  I’m not planning on trying to read for the full 24 hours because we have dinner plans with my husband’s parents tomorrow and I have long meetings on Monday so I need sleep.  I have kept this afternoon and evening and tomorrow morning clear though so I’m hoping to get some solid reading done around the snoozing!

Onto the books…

The Women in the Walls by Amy Lukavics – I’ve been really in the mood for YA horror recently and I’ve made a start on this already so it’ll probably be my first pick.  It’s easy to read so I’m hoping it’ll be a perfect readathon choice!

The Fires of Heaven by Robert Jordan – I only have about 170 pages left of this and I might use tomorrow morning to finish it off.  It’s a re-read, though so I might leave it until after the readathon when my eyes are less fresh!

The Ghost Stories of Edith Wharton – These are all quite short so I thought they’d be handy for breaks between books or for when I fancy something different.

Lighter Than My Shadow by Katie Green – I picked this up from the library a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been saving it for today.  It’s a graphic novel about the author’s battles with an eating disorder.  The book is hefty so it’s not one I’ll be carrying around with me and I figured a graphic novel would be good for the later hours.

I’ll post my updates in a separate post and on Twitter (
