Friday Reads | Readathon Weekend!

downthebookhole

This weekend is the Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon and I am very much looking forward to participating! I havent been reading as much lately and havent even gotten the chance to read any spooky, creepy or fall type reads! With Autumn upon us and the weather here in Nebraska finally starting to feel like it I want to spend some time outside with some apple cider and do some reading while I still can! I also have a bunch of errands that I need to run this weekend, like laundry and oil change for my car, all things I can take my book with me to and still be productive. I have not yet selected my tbr for the readathon and will most likely do it later tonight and will do all of my readathon posting on either instagram and twitter- @downthebookhole. I would love to know if you will be participating and what you plan on reading! I am currently reading Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan with about 100 pages left. I am really enjoying it so far, the world is so interesting (although I wish we got a little more about it) and the whole concept of the story is something new I havent read before with the inspiration from Asian culture. I also and very excited about the love interest and was rooting for it from the beginning!

What are you reading this weekend?

24 Hour Christmas Eve Read-A-Thon

I decided that since I am on my own this holiday weekend and have nothing else to do it would be a perfect time to get in all that end of the year reading. And what better way to bring in Christmas Day than with a 24 hour readathon? 24 hours on the 24th! So join me and read as much or as little as you want, holiday inspired or not. Try to reach those end of year reading goals and find would could possibly be your favorite read of 2017! 

READ-A-THON RULES: 

The reading is to start at 12:01am 12/24 and ends at 12:01am 12/25! Follow the #xmaseveread and join in on the conversation and fun! 

TBR PLANS:
