Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon

This year I am participating in the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!! It comes at a perfect time, because I really have not read as much as I was hoping too this month, so now I get to play a little bit of catch up.  Here are the books I hope to get through today:

I’ll be updating this page throughout the day as I continue to work my way through this stack. For me, the readathon begins at 7am CST.  I don’t have much of a plan for how to tackle these books.  I think I’m just going to start with Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning and switch out if I get bored or tired.  Wish me luck 🙂

12 pm(ish): So I just finished Darkfever and it wasn’t one of my favorites…I did fly through it pretty fast though and may post more specifically about it later. After finishing that and snagging a bite to eat, I am getting ready to start reading Asylum by Madeleine Roux.  It’s my most halloween-esque book on my readathon TBR and I hope it is able to creep me out quite a bit 🙂  Good luck to the all the other readers out there who are also participating in the Readathon today!!

3:30 pm: Super Pleased! I just finished Asylum! It was a great creepy read, that was perfect with Halloween coming up.  I am way ahead of schedule and will probably end up exceeding my TBR for this readathon.  I am about to start reading Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy which I have only heard good things about.  We will see, I read The Side Effects May Vary by her a few years ago and was a bit underwhelmed but I’m going to keep a totally open mind and hope that I can finish up my last book with ease 🙂

7:30 pm: I just finished reading Dumplin’ and it was a really sweet story that I enjoyed quite a bit.  Now that I have finished all 3 books that I set out to read in the 24 hour readathon I am going to just plug away at the books I wanted to read in October.  First up, I’m going to finish Dark Places by Gillian Flynn.  I am always intrigued by Flynn’s work for 1 big reason, despite almost always hating the central characters, I always fly through her books and find them impossible to put down.

10:30 pm: Alright, so I am starting to drag a little bit now, but we will see how much longer I can keep reading.  I was really intrigued and held in suspense all the way through the end of Dark Places.  So I have going to keep going with that gritty theme and start You by Caroline Kepnes.  This is a book from the perspective of a stalker, and its told in the 2nd person narrative.  I’ve heard this makes it extra creepy, and just right for this time of year I suppose.
