Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is tomorrow and I am so excited that I am breaking my blog silence to share my reading piles with you. There is still time to sign up if you’d like to participate. I promise you, it is more fun than you would expect.
This year I took a very short-and-easy approach when picking out my books because even a regular YA novel will take me 6 hours and that gets a little frustrating when everyone else is finishing book after book and I’m still reading my first one.
The first pile (the books I think I will definitely read):
- I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder (her novels in verse are great for the Readathon)
- Good-Bye, Chunky Rice by Craig Thompson (graphic novel)
- The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster (I’ve never read it!)
- Triangles by Ellen Hopkins (so this one is long but it is also written in verse so I thought it would be nice once I get a few others read)
The second pile (the backup in case I feel like something else aka the library YA pile):
- Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver (would have made the first pile but I requested the audio yesterday and I think I’m going to wait for that)
- Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
- Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr (Wicked Lovely #3)
