Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon April 2013!

I'm SUPER excited to be participating again, because the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-Thon this is one of my favourite read-a-thons to join!

I'll mostly be picking from this stack of books to read from. I don't expect to finish them all, and I'm already partway through two of them.


I've started The King of Torts, but I'm struggling with it. I borrowed it from a friend who insisted that I MUST read John Grisham, and I need to finish it at some point. Maybe that day can be today!

I'm also about halfway through Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, but I'm finding it slow and picked up a new book last night. But I'd like to finish it.


1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Bright and sunny Ontario, Canada! It is seriously gorgeous today.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen! I love, love, LOVE her books and I can't wait to read her new upcoming release. Plus I need a contemporary fix every now and then.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I think I'm most excited about lunch actually haha. But I have some really delicious spiced almonds I'm looking forward to snacking on.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
Some of you already know this about me, but for those of you that don't, I just finished my first year of law school last week. And I haven't started work yet so now it's just blissful, lazy freedom for a little while! So this read-a-thon had perfect timing :)

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
I actually really want to force myself to take a couple of breaks and plan them out so I don't end up feeling bogged down and slow with my reading. I'll have lunch with my grandfather for a bit, and I want to go for a run later in this gorgeous weather (and I figure I can have an audiobook playing then). That should be enough to help me focus on my reading!

So I'm off to start The Moon and More at 9:15 EST! I'll be back here in a bit to update :)

UPDATE 1: 

So I'm updated FAR later than I normally do in a read-a-thon - but today has been busy! I took a longer lunch break than anticipated, as I had lunch for about an hour and then proceeded to nap.. for about two more hours! It's been 13 hours since I started reading, although 3 of those were a break and I've only finished book 1 (The Moon and More - which is over 400 pages) and I'm starting on Dr. Frankenstein's Daughters now. At least I'm well-rested!

Wow, congratulations on finishing Law School! What perfect timing for a Read-a-thon.

I'm a fan of Sarah Dessen, too, so I'd probably put her book at the top of my stack. Enjoy your day!

You have an ARC of The Moon and More? Argh, I am so insanely jealous right now. Must determine who to contact to get one of my own... :) Hope the rest of the readathon went well! I took a very laid back approach to it this year :)

Somehow I just heard about this yesterday otherwise would have joined in! It still makes me want to cry any time I see someone has The Moon and More...Sarah Dessen is one of my favourite authors and I sent Penguin a request plus requested on Edelweiss and NetGalley but didn't get it. *sniff* I hope you enjoy it!
