Hello all! Prepare yourselves for a bombardment of posts over the next day or so, as it’s Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon and I’m planning on participating in as many challenges as possible!
If you didn’t know, Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon is just that – reading as much as possible in 24 hours. However, there are also hourly challenges, and I’ll be partaking via this blog and Twitter.
For me, the readathon starts at 1pm (I’m BST), so I’ll be spending the morning working and having a nice long lie-in before the fun starts! But for now, I thought I’d share my TBR, because I have a variety of reading material that I’m pretty excited for!
- The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
I am super excited for this book, and might actually start it before the readathon begins! I’m seeing Madeline Miller talk on May 2 and would have like to have read this before then.
- Shakespeare: Text Into Performance by Peter Reynolds
This is a book that’s really short that I’m reading for one of my essays. I thought that if I felt guilty because I wasn’t doing any work, I could read and partake in the readathon.
- To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
I’ve had this one on NetGalley for a while although it’s already out & I keep picking it up at Waterstone’s. Anyway, I got it from the library (although because I have it on Kindle I can read it digitally too!).
- Black Widow: Deadly Origin by Paul Cornell et al.
This collection of Marvel comics includes #1-4, and I think it’ll be a pretty quick read. I adore Marvel, so it’ll be a nice way to break up time in the readathon if I want to!
- Thornhill by Pam Smy
This book looks chunky af but it’s actually a graphic novel and really doesn’t include a lot of works, so I think it’ll be great for the readathon. It’s also on the Waterstone’s Older Fiction Children’s Book Prize shortlist, which I’m working my way through right now.
- Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
I have wanted to read this graphic novel for the longest time, and today when I saw it at the library I just snatched it up! I’m excited!
- Witchborn by Nicholas Bowling
This I think is a MG/YA novel, and is about witches and looks great. I think it’s one I’ll zip through too which is pretty handy!
I don’t know if I’ll finish all of these, but I’d like to read The Song of Achilles and a few of the graphic novels/comics throughout the readathon. For me it’s 1pm – 1pm, although I do need sleep as I have a lot of work to do on the Sunday, so I think I’m going to aim to read for about 12 hours or so! I’d like to, anyway. My schedule is cleared, so reading it is!
Are you taking part in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon? If so, do you have a TBR, or just wing it? If you do, what’s on it? I’d love to know!
Until the next time, Hx
