Didn't quite make it to 24 hours for #24in48 but I put in a good effort. I read for close to 22 hours this time. Almost!! Had a fabulous time anyway. ☺
I finished 4 books, started 2 others and just about finished an audio book.

I think I missed a season or two of the #Booked2018 Challenge, but I did manage most of the last section!

Underdog Hero - The Call
Features a holiday - The Halloween Tree (and, not pictured, but I just finished Krampus by Brom as well!)
New in 2018 - The Silence of the Girls
MC with invisible illness - For a Muse of Fire
Spooky Read - 14

I also read a few Miss Marple books (MC over 70), but I believe I read she was closer to 65? 🤷‍♀️

Cinfhen I‘m happy to count Miss Marple 😂😂and I‘m thinking The silence of Girls might be my #FirstReadOf2019 ...I‘ve narrowed it down to 4 choices (edited) 11mo
JPeterson @Cinfhen Oh, good! I felt like every book I read, the main character never broke 65 years old. 😂🤣 Enjoy Silence of the Girls! 11mo

Absolutely loved this book! Fantastic premise and full of unique details. As soon as I read the premise, I was hooked. The writing was so well paced and just sucked me in. Was hard to put down. It definitely had a hunger games vibe to it, but I preferred this book to the hunger games for sure. I love the use of Irish mythology. Also, great use of tension throughout, definitely kept me on the edge of my seat!

I read this book on its debut and it blew me away. A horror that explores a different side of the genre away from the mutilation of both body and mind! Book 2 is out soon! The author is having trouble getting the word out. Read book one and please read book 2 #TheInvasion read my book review if you are unconvinced. https://fountainpenhandwriting.wordpress.com/2016/08/30/book-review-the-call/?pr...

This book was okay. I didn‘t find it creepy, like I heard it was (and I‘m a giant wimp!). Not that I was reading it to be creeped out. 3🌟.

The Sidhe want to wipe out all the Irish people in the world. They can somehow snatch them and transplant them into their world where the teenagers have to try to survive. There is a lot of death in this book.

I‘m currently reading this book. I‘m about 70 pages in. I‘m not finding it creepy... I‘m finding it very implausible (yes I know it‘s paranormal fiction). Like how can the Sidhe just take the people and put them back. Why can‘t the Irish invent something that stops their people from being taken.

I know that‘s not the point of the book, but these are the thoughts that are running through my head while reading!

This book ended up being a quick and delightful read. Nessa's character, while not super complex, is a joy to follow. Bonus points for a strong character who is differently abled. The fantasy and horror aspects of this book were new and unusual imagery. Generally, a great read, that I find myself wanting more of.

Due to a fairy curse, Ireland is not only cutoff from the rest of the world, but also every Irish youth will be called to the fairy world where they will fight for their survival. Only 1 in 10 survive, the bodies of the living and dead often return deformed & permanently scarred. This book is similar to Hunger Games, but it's darker & creepier. Adding to an already unique story, the main character is disabled, which I loved!

I'm about halfway through this little gem of a book and I'm loving it so far! Last night, it took longer than usual to get to fall asleep because I kept envisioning myself being kidnapped by fairies! 😂

I almost bought this for myself at B&N in early December, but then I reminded myself that I was on a book buying ban! Fortunately, my Secret Santa picked it up for me! Thank you again, @alleyfam51699 !

alleyfam51699 I‘m so glad you are liking it. It was one of my top books I read last year. I can‘t wait for the next one. 2y

"Thousands of years ago, humans banished the Sidhe fairy race to another dimensions. The beautiful, terrible Sidhe have stewed in a land of horrors ever since, plotting their revenge...and now their day has come".

This book had me hooked! I flew threw it, and even when I did put it down it still had me thinking "what is going to happen next?!" "Who will be next to be Called?" "Will they make it out Greyland alive?!"

Talk about a page turner! ?

Cruel killer fairies? Yes please! I expected something a little like The Hunger Games, but this was way darker - so, even better than I thought. Seems like there is a second book coming up as well, which I'm totally going to read.

Set in an alternate version of Ireland, this story follows Nessa, a young girl suffering from the effects of polio. She is in survival school as during adolescence, all children will be Called, suddenly forced to fight for their lives in the grey land against the Sidhe, whose touch can bend and shape the human body like it was clay. This YA novel is grim and gruesome at times, but also entertaining, engaging, and fast-paced.

This book was soooo good! It's like a twisted mythological version of The Hunger Games. It's extremely fast paced--I really struggled to put it down! Told from the POV of multiple characters as they are Called. Wasn't expecting that, but it works well for the story. I want more!
