Challenge: Dewey 24-Hour Read-a-Thon UPDATES (#4)

Are you read-a-thon-ing yet? The Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-Thon is here!

deweyread_edited-1-300x200

This will most likely be my FINAL update since I’m betting I won’t make it past midnight. I’m hoping to at least make it TO midnight, so fingers crossed!

Update from hours THIRTEEN through EIGHTEEN:

HOUR THIRTEEN & FOURTEEN

Books Read: 1
Books Read Total: 4
Snacks Consumed: None 😦
Bevvies: Water 😦
Notes: A peaceful few hours of reading and not much else! It’s sad that it’s dark here again … it was dark when I started!

HOUR FIFTEEN & SIXTEEN

Books Read: 1
Books Read Total: 5
Snacks Consumed: None.
Bevvies: Hot chocolate. Mmm. 🙂
Notes: So the challenge for the fifteenth hour was to recommend a Horror, Mystery, or Thriller book that’s under $3.99. Unfortunately, the challenge was for US participants only! One of my favourite horror books has to be Darkhouse by Karina Halle and you can get that one for FREE from any ebook retailer! There you go. There’s my recommendation! Oh, and there’s also Jenny Pox by J. L. Bryan. Also free from ebook retailers! How can you beat a deal like that?

HOUR SEVENTEEN & …

Books Read: 2
Books Read Total: 7
Snacks Consumed: Banana
Bevvies: Water (so close to bedtime!)
Notes: As much as I thought I could last at LEAST 18 hours, I was wrong … my goal turned into finishing the books I had on the go, as well as a picture book I had won (one of my favourite series, Scaredy Squirrel), and then it was off to bed!

HOUR THIRTEEN CHALLENGE: BEST OF YOUR READING YEAR

A toss-up between the cover for Jessi Kirby’s Golden and Gennifer Albin’s (original) cover for Crewel

Best Setting of Your Reading Year

Thumbs up to the world created in Robin LaFevers’s Dark Triumph … love that world! Also, hat’s off to the world of Croak by Gina Damico. I’m sad to see that series end!

HOUR FOURTEEN CHALLENGE: AUDIOBOOK DREAM DATE

Felicia, over at The Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog is challenging us to pick a book and our dream narrator! If I had to choose, I would say ….

darkly dreaming dexter

Would it be wrong to say I’d love this to be narrated by the man himself, Michael C. Hall? Because that would equal awesome.

Other dream narrators (not for this book, but pretty much any book in general) include David Tennant and Hugh Laurie. I mean, total wins, right?

HOUR SEVENTEEN CHALLENGE: BOOKISH TRAVEL

A Reader’s Respite wants to know the best place a book has taken us … I can think of a few favourite travel books:

wanderlove Anna and the French Kiss new name of the star

From left, we have: Central America, Paris, and England. All wonderful reads!

  1. I’m usually happy if I can make it to 10 pm on readathon days – I’m super impressed with anyone who can make it even a few hours longer than that! Congrats on finishing 4 books today 🙂
