I like the plot, but it needed to be edited down by at least 50-80 pages, and HOLY SHIT THE METAPHORS. They were everywhere.

Here‘s the next novel on my list. I hope to get it done this weekend! #24in48

When doing readathons, I like to break up longer books with something I can dip in and out of. This looks like the perfect palate cleanser between my novels and memoirs! #24in48

Hello, fellow #24in48 readathoners! I‘m going to casually do this readathon this weekend, so I doubt I‘ll hit 24 hours (I‘m not even going to track it), but I do hope to get some good reading time in before my next masters class starts on Monday. I‘m currently about a fourth of the way through this gem, so finishing this is my first goal of the ‘thon. Merry reading!

Godmotherx5 I like the casual idea. 13mo

After my hounds demanded their third walk of the day so far (they‘re terrible), I‘m ready to start my third #readathon book. This has some pretty terrible reviews on goodreads, but I‘m still game to give it a shot.

1) Clive, Iowa (a suburb of Des Moines)
2) I didn‘t prepare a TBR stack this time, so I‘ll choose as I go along.
3) it‘s a chilly day here, so I‘m thinking of making some chili later to help warm me up
4) I‘m a librarian (I love books!!), I have lime green hair, I‘m a vegan, and I have 2 basset hounds named Holly and Cooper
5) this is I think my 4th readathon. I‘m putting less pressure on myself this time. I‘m going with the flow!

Hi #readathon people! I‘m going to start by finishing the novel I‘m in the middle of, so I can check it off my list! I don‘t have an official TBR pile for today, so I‘ll play it by ear as the day goes along. In the background of this pic is one of my basset hounds, Holly. She‘s confused as to why we are up at 7AM on a Saturday. Silly dog, it‘s time for reading!

And I‘m back (after writing a paper, doing laundry, gardening, and also walking this stinky boy). Going to get a start on this one tonight for my final #24in48 book and hopefully get to at least 9 hours! #cooperthedog

Hello everyone! It‘s been too long. I‘ve been neglecting Litsy since, well, the last readathon I did! I promise to change that going forward. Anyhoo, I‘m starting off my #24in48 weekend by trying to finish this book. I won‘t be able to get to 24 hours this weekend, because it‘s just too busy (why oh why did I start a second master‘s while working full time and co-writing a book chapter with colleagues?!), but I‘ll do as much as I can! #letsdothis

Omg yaaasssssss I loved this book. It was exactly what I needed to read now, as I‘ve read a string of merely okay books in a row. This was excellent.

johnnie_cakes I need to pick up her earlier stuff. I loved I Found You, and her upcoming one, Then She Was Gone. 2y

Not good, not bad. I mostly feel unsettled after finishing this.

Jess7 Yeah this wasn‘t my favorite one. It‘s definitely inspired by the Amanda Knox case, with things changed. However, I found the real case to be much more interesting. If you haven‘t already, I highly recommend reading Amanda Knox‘s book: 2y

Not sure about this one. I‘m halfway through it, and it‘s odd? The writing comes off a bit pretentious.

#readathon check in time. I‘m over 300 pages into my book (maybe I should‘ve picked a shorter book to start with!!), and it‘s going to rain soon, so I‘ll walk my sleepy hounds now. Then lunch, then I‘ll finish my first book of the day.
