READATHON TBR: Dewey’s

deweys.jpg

It’s readathon time, lovelies!

I’ll go over all the details in a second, but if you want to look at the original announcement instead of mine, you can find it on the Dewey’s website (this post in particular). Don’t forget to sign up while you’re there!

dates: July 27, 8:00PM – July 28, 8:00PM ET
rules: Read as much as possible during the 24-hour readathon.

Like I said, this readathon starts TONIGHT at 8PM Eastern Time. If you’re unsure of what time the readathon ends for you, here is a handy-dandy time zone converter.


So, my plan is the exact same plan that I had for the 24 in 48 readathon — I’m just gonna finish up some of the books that I’m currently reading.

Currently, I’m still reading Ghosts of Dragonspear Castle (a Dungeons and Dragons campaign guide), and Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Aside from those, I’m listening to The Lost Kingdom of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine, and I’m guesstimating that I’m about 40% through, which would put me at 160 pages before the readathon.

I’m probably going to go ahead and start reading Untamed by P.C. + Kristin Cast to split up the dense Dungeons and Dragons mechanics, since I grabbed it from the library while I was there yesterday.

I’m going to read as much as possible, though I do have a few plans that will interfere. Tonight, I’m supposed to go watch movies with my friend Malcolm, and tomorrow afternoon around 3, my Dungeons and Dragons group starts the new campaign.

What’s on your TBR? Are you participating in this readathon?

BOOK REVIEW: Final Draft

Final DraftThe only sort of risk 18-year-old Laila Piedra enjoys is the peril she writes for the characters in her stories: epic sci-fi worlds full of quests, forbidden love, and robots. Her creative writing teacher has always told her she has a special talent. But three months before her graduation, he’s suddenly replaced—by Nadiya Nazarenko, a Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist who is sadistically critical and perpetually unimpressed.

At first, Nazarenko’s eccentric assignments seem absurd. But before long, Laila grows obsessed with gaining the woman’s approval. Soon Laila is pushing herself far from her comfort zone, discovering the psychedelic highs and perilous lows of nightlife, temporary flings, and instability. Dr. Nazarenko has led Laila to believe that she must choose between perfection and sanity—but rejecting her all-powerful mentor may be the only way for Laila to thrive.

READATHON WRAP-UP: 24 in 48

24in48

The goal of this readathon was to read for at least 24 hours over a two-day period, and I got so close, but didn’t quite make it. I only read for 21 hours total.

I ended up spending all of Sunday morning either running at the park or working out during personal training, and I lost quite a bit of reading time doing that. Regardless, I’m happy with what I accomplished!

hours spent reading: 21
pages read
: 661
