My Saturday plans were canceled, I'll be house sitting, and it's going to be dark and stormy. The perfect atmosphere for  Dewey's 24 Hour Read-athon. I'll be updating this post sporadically with progress, challenges, etc. I've got no specific goals, just a TBR pile to choose from with some graphic novels thrown in:


A thank you to Dewey, for starting it all.


1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
New York


2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Shadows by Robin McKinley, I'm going to save it for towards the end though, hopefully it'll help keep me awake.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

I baked some chocolate chip cookies, so definitely those.


4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I love audiobooks but can only focus on narrative non-fiction. I tried listening to novels but my mind wanders and I miss things. Luckily I have some Mary Roach books on the ipod for times when I'm cleaning/cooking.

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?

It's my first read-a-thon. I'm looking forward to finishing some books from the TBR pile :)

For the first challenge I chose "Monster" by Imagine Dragons. Very appropriate for The Final Descent.

Lisa's World of Books Mini Challenge: Best of the Year

Best Non-Fiction: In Other Worlds by Margaret Atwood
Best YA: In the After by Demitria Lunetta
Best Fantasy Book : The Girl of Fire and Thorns
Best Book of My Reading Year : Artful by Ali Smith


Mid-Event Survey

1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired? 
Getting a little tired. It'll be coffee time soon
2) What have you finished reading? 
2 books: A Spark Unseen by Sharon Cameron & The Final Descent by Rick Yancey
3) What is your favorite read so far? 
Probably The Final Descent, it gave me a lot of feelings, though I'm a bit wrung out from it as well.
4) What about your favorite snacks? 
Popcorn, though I have to be careful not to get my book greasy
5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!
I have a book choosing dilemma: I need something that will keep me awake. I'm eyeing Code Name Verity but that may be too intense, feelings-wise. Maybe Vampire Academy? Or The Twistrose Key.
