I didn’t do as well as I hoped I would. I sat down to read Saturday morning after a struggle to even get out of my nice warm bed. I made coffee and breakfast (sweet potato toast with mashed avocado, 10 outta 10 and highly recommend), set up my reading area with blankets, books, I light a candle, sat down, and immediately lost all interest.
I don’t know why but I just wasn’t feeling it, which is such a disappointment because I had been looking forward to this readathon since the last round.
I cant be too mad at myself, I did read more then I would have if there wasn’t a readathon going on. I read for 4 hours, started 3 books, finished 1, and made some progress on another.

I participated in the 24 in 48 hr readathon last year in July and I had a great time, I read so much and enjoyed everything I read. Ever since then I’ve been eagerly awaiting the next round that is taking place from January 26th through the 27th, I’ll link the sign-up page on their website here
So the goal of the 24 in 48 hr readathon is to read for 24 hours within a 48 hour time period. Last year I think I read for 12 hours. 24 hours would be my ultimate goal of course but my realistic goal is to read for 16 or 20 hours, I feel fairly confident about that goal.

I love the Deweys 24 hour readathon! I’ve talked about Dewey’s readathon before a couple of times, I even wrote a blog post about why I like readathons. So I thought I would share my TBR and see if anyone else is planning on participating. I’ve had my TBR planned for a little while, nothing too set in stone but I kind of intended to read some of these during the readathon.

I love Zoe’s 24 Hour Readathons! I love 24-hour readathons in general but Zoe just has this amazing energy that really transcends through Twitter and Youtube and it gives her readathons a touch of something extra special.
So far these are my books that I really want to get to, I’ve heard amazing things about all of them. I’m also going to try staying up for the whole 24 hours. My plan is to go to sleep this afternoon when I get home and try to get 4 or 6 hours in so I won’t feel the need to sleep much Saturday, nothing that coffee cant help me get through lol.
I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to squeeze anything else in during the 24 hours, this alone seems a bit ambitious but I’m dedicated. Currently rewatching some of my favorite readathon vlogs to get me hyped and motivated; Zoe and PeruseProject are my current faves, just loving their vlogs.

My TBR Pile
I’ve been looking forward to this readathon for so long! I love the idea of this readathon to focus on bigger books in your TBR. Most of these books are from my reading goals for 2016 list that I really want to get to and I thought that this readathon would be a perfect time to get to some of these.
p.s. I know a lot of you must be getting annoyed with seeing A Dance with Dragons constantly coming up in my TBRs and all I can say is I’m annoyed with it too, but this readathon, this will be the readathon that I finally finish it! Yeah!
I’m really looking forward to all of these but I’m really really looking forward to The Beauty of Darkness and The Name of the Wind probably the most.
The Name of the Wind (Part of a series/An adult novel)
The Wise Mans Fear (Part of a series/An adult novel)
Beauty of Darkness (Part of a series)
All the Light We Cannot See (An adult novel)
A Dance with Dragons (Part of a series/An adult novel)
A Slow Regard of Silent Things
It’s finally that time for The Dewey’s 24-hour readthon! This maybe one of my favorite readathons that I’ve participated in, I always have so much fun and I’m always so sad once the day is over.
During the last readathon in April, I read 2.5 books and I think I can do more this time around. I ended up choosing some shorter books and I made sure that I’ll have options if I start to read a bit slowly. The only two I’m thinking that I won’ get to or finish are The Unfaithful Queen and Of Neptune since they’re the books with the most pages.

So I own a lot of unread series. The last time that I counted was about 20ish something unread series in my book collection. It drives me nuts looking at that pile, so because of that, I am participating in another readathon. The Slay that Series readathon. The goal? Finish as many series as you can.
Slay That Series readathon is taking place from September 25- October 2
The aim of this readathon is fairly simple – all you need to do is try to “slay” all those series you’ve been neglecting!
If I play my cards right and keep reading through everything, I should be able to cross off 4 books from my unread series list which would be awesome!
In The Afterlight
This series is on my Book Goals for 2016 and I want to get on with completing that list. (I say that as if this series is the only thing that’s keeping me from completing the list. That is so far from the case that it’s laughable!)
The Dream Thieves
Blue Lily, Lily Blue
The Raven King
I’m ready to continue on with the series, I really want to get to this series soon before I start forgetting little details from The Raven Boys.
Since this lovely end to the duology is going to be released during the readathon, I made sure to make room in my TBR for it.
It kind of kills me that this is the last book in the series and yet I haven’t been bothered to read it yet. That will change!
