This book is pretty bizarre and a lot of the interactions are far fetched, but I really enjoyed it. I got sucked in from the moment I started it. 1st book finished of the #24in48. I slept in and took breaks for food so I'm not too far in to my readathon

Perfect weekend for the #24in48 readathon! Its below zero and snowing outside, but I get to snuggle up with books.

This is an ideal way to spend the evening. I'm burning the christmas at the burrow candle from frostbeard and listening to the harry potter scores playlist on spotify to drown out my dudes videogame.

I brought this with me on a trip to the east coast and it is so fun to be reading while I am here. We spent a couple of days in Providence, but they also mention Salem and other areas close to where I am.

3rd book and lunch. I made a quick and messy spicy tuna poke, one of my favorite foods. I loved Dumplin and I really hope this book lives up to it

I‘m just getting back in to the readathon right now. I slept until 7:30, then went for a group hike and ran errands but I did listen to a book while in my car. I‘m starting up again at just over four hours read. #readathon #reversereadathon #deweysjuly

Starting the reverse readathon with this book on my phone. I forgot to charge my kindle, but am hoping to finish this one tonight and will move on to paper books tomorrow. This is my snuggery, or reading room, and it‘s my favorite place to read. #readathon #reversereadathon #deweys #julyreadathon

I‘m not sure how I feel about this one. It‘s a quick read and is well written, but overall I‘m disappointed.

CathyJ I just finished this and I was disappointed too. 1y

I was so excited for this book I accidentally bought it twice, in hardcover and on kindle, and it did not disappoint me. So good and sweet.

We're in Portland, Maine for the day so I had to make a stop at Print bookstore and I was not disappointed.

I was feeling pretty down yesterday so I did some book shopping (this is only part of the order, I got 13 total). I‘m always looking for a book that makes me feel as good as Wild and a couple others having. I‘m hoping one is in this stack

I‘m going to alternate between these two for the time being. Something tells me I‘ll need something light to break up Columbine, and Samantha Irby will be in Minneapolis in May so I‘m trying to read her books by then.

I‘m putting the finishing touches on my reading room. I‘ve been listening to my favorite murder podcast almost constantly at work and I‘m slightly obsessed, so I picked up some true crime books and decided to highlight them on my book case. (Also looking for more true crime recommendations)

I got home from my new book club at 12:30 last night, spent half an hour trying to find parking due to snow emergency, and then I started this book. Bad idea. It kept me up until past two, it‘s like nothing I‘ve read before.

I only read 30 pages of Hex before I gave up for the night. It‘s not scary yet, but I kept expecting it to be, and I scared myself basically. I didn‘t quite make ten hours yesterday, but I‘ve made my coffee and I‘m ready to get started again! #24in48

It‘s pretty much my bedtime but I really want to get a little more reading in tonight. I‘m having a hard time choosing what to read next and decided to go with a horror because it will keep me up, but I also think it‘s a bad idea because it will keep me up :/ #24in48
