May‘s #24B4Monday #Readathon has crept up on me. Now got 24 hours to choose the books before it starts. Need to be careful with my targets as got our first grandaughter‘s Christening to attend and a 500 mile drive over Saturday evening / Sunday morning.
Hope you are going to join myself, @Clwojick @RadicalReader @TheReadingMermaid for this special edition Readathon where we join with #MayMadness and aim to read a banned book or 2 this weekend.

TheReadingMermaid Woot woot 🤘🏻🎉🙌👏 3h
TheReadingMermaid Also please be safe in your travels sweetie. Let us all know how the christening goes 😃 3h
Samplergal I‘m in! 3h
EadieB I won‘t be able to read much this weekend either as I‘m babysitting on Friday all day and will be thoroughly exhausted as I also am babysitting on Thursday too! On Saturday I have a family birthday party to go to so not many hours left for reading. 2h

ehewett88 I loves a monster calls brilliant book, I saw th film first so couldn't help but hear liam Neeson throughout (not a bad thing in my opinion haha) but the book is beautifully written and the reason behind him writing the story is also so heartbreaking and sweet 5h
Andrew65 Were any of these banned books, @TheReadingMermaid ? 5h
Andrew65 @ehewett88 I need to read A Monster Calls. I read and loved this trilogy of his. 5h

Anthony Bourdain's Hungry Ghosts | Anthony Bourdain, Joel Rose

Ok, I promise that this is the last graphic novel for #MayMadnessWeek3 #graphicnovel challenge! 😁

Drawing from Japanese mythologies of yokai, yorei and obake, Anthony Bourdain cooked up eight terrifying tales of fear & food from around the world in Hungry Ghosts. Great artwork, enjoyed the stories but they're not scary for me.

Rating: 3🌟
