#24in48 Readathon, January 2019

My TBR

The Wedding Date
The Cure for Dreaming
Don Quixote

Pretty much right after I wrote my “It’s Monday…” post, I decided I should read a few more stories with some romance in them. So, I took a look around the online libraries and picked out The Wedding Date and The Cure for Dreaming. I also want to catch up with the other reading I had planned this week: Don Quixote and a bunch of short stories.

Wrap-Up!

I decided this morning that, since I wasn’t going to make it the full 24hrs, I wanted to get 18 hours done. And, hey! I got 19!

I finished reading The Wedding Date, started and finished The Cure for Dreaming, caught up on Don Quixote and my short story reading, *and* started The Beautiful Cigar Girl and Black Klansman. That’s a pretty good reading weekend!

Hour Zero: Intro Survey

  • Where are you from? Where are you now? If you could do readathon from anywhere in the world, where would you be? I’m originally from Nebraska, but I’m pretty happy in Tempe, AZ. (Esp. this time of the year!)
  • Have you done 24in48 before? How many times?! If it’s your first time with us, where did you hear about 24in48? I’ve done this readathon a few times.
  • Are you readathon-ing alone? If not, who are you doing 24in48 with? All alone.
  • What book are you kicking 24in48 off with? What book are you most excited about this weekend? Finishing up this week’s chapter of Ashes to Ashes to start.
  • Since it’s the beginning of a new year, what are your reading resolutions for 2019? Read 52 book, at least 1/3 nonfiction, and read more horror.

        Dating You, Hating You by Christina Lauren is pretty funny. Roomies by Christina Lauren is hilarious. I liked The Hating Game by Sally Thorne is pretty good, as is The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. One book I found surprisingly amusing in the rom-com arena was Alice Clayton’s Wallbanger, which is the start of an amusing cocktail series!!

    I’m taking part in this two and I’m so happy about it! I go back to university on Monday after a month-long break, so this readathon came at the perfect time. Don Quixote sounds like a great read and I want to start it during the summer. I hope you love it!
    I didn’t know you were from Nebraska! My boyfriend and his whole family is from there and I’m visiting during the summer 😊
