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!
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
Bonus sleepy dog in the corner. For my second #24in48 I‘ll finally read this one
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.
Not good, not bad. I mostly feel unsettled after finishing this.
Decently written. Makes me want to see some Taylor films. Also, with this 7th and final book of the weekend, I have completed #24in48!!!
For my 7th and final #24in48 selection, I‘m going to give this a whirl.
This book was so much better than I expected. Day 1 of #24in48 is done for me now.
Just hit my hour 9 for #24in48. Getting a little sleepy. Time to change rooms!
For my third #24in48 selection, I‘m finally getting around to reading Cheryl Strayed‘s advice book.
Well that was just too freaking adorable.
Next up for #24in48 is a book I first came across when I was a volunteer shelf reader at a public library while I was going to library school. What can I say, the title intrigued me!
Absolutely wonderful. Perfect #readathon book, too, because the essay chapters are so short.
Book number 2 for the #readathon. I think it‘ll go faster than the first.
