After wistfully sitting on the sidelines for the last 24 Hour Read-a-Thon back in April, I'm very excited to be able to participate in tomorrow's event. I saved two books that I bought as a direct result of Dewey's reviews (The Uncommon Reader and Paper Towns) for this read-a-thon and will be reading them in memory of Dewey.
Since this is my first time doing the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon, I have no clue what to expect, so I'm not setting a lot of goals for myself. I would like to surpass the 585 pages I read as part of the 12 hour Mystery Read-a-Thon I participated in during the summer, though. Other than aiming for that, I'm just going to focus on reading and having fun. I haven't done as much reading as usual since I moved, so it's nice to know that I have tomorrow completely set aside as reading time. I also haven't blogged much since the move. Hopefully posting updates throughout the day will get me back into the habit of blogging regularly.
Right now my tentative reading list looks like this:
Coraline by Neil Gaiman (re-read)
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
The Mystery of the Third Lucretia by Susan Runholt
Paper Towns by John Green
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky (re-read)
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith
The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett
I may also pull out some of the Doctor Who and Torchwood novels that I've been wanting to read. I think they would be perfect for fun, fast reads since I'm already very familiar with all of the characters and the world-building in the Who/Torchwood universe.
