It’s time for another round of 24in48 and I AM SO EXCITED! Seriously, I’ve been looking forward to this since I first participated back in January. I didn’t manage to complete 24 hours of reading, but I still had a blast, and I’m feeling hopeful for this round.
If you aren’t familiar with 24in48 then here’s some background information! During the 48 hours that make up July 20 and 21 (it’s held twice a year in January and July), participants are challenged to read for 24 hours. You can break up the time however you want, go solo or pair up with friends, get your family involved… However you do it is up to you!
The hosts have challenges and discussion topics every few hours and encourage you to check in with other participants. It’s a crazy, sleepless, drunk on books 48 hours and it’s simultaneously one of the most fun and most stressful things I’ve ever done. Even if you don’t manage to read for 24 hours, it’s fun to challenge and push yourself to your limits and see how much reading you can get done.
This round I’m hoping to complete the SEVEN books down below. It seems like a lot for 24 hours but I really want to push myself. If I can’t get through all of them that’s okay. I can dream though, right? I won’t be reading any books I currently have for review because I want to focus on simply reading and not on analyzing and gathering a bunch of thoughts on them.
The Summer of Jordi Perez (And the Best Burger in Los Angeles) by Amy Spalding – I’ve heard this is a super sweet book! Thanks for gifting it to me, Heidi.
Blankets by Craig Thompson – This is supposed to be incredible and it’s been sitting on my shelf for several months because I’ve been too nervous to read it. I think it’s finally time.
Imposters by Scott Westerfeld – The Uglies series is one of my favorite things on this earth. I’m so excited to finally be returning to that world!
Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – I’m a little ashamed that I haven’t read this yet but I’M JUST REALLY SCARED, OKAY? I know Amie and Jay are going to rip my heart out and I just haven’t been ready yet.
Gone Rogue by Marissa Meyer – I loved returning to The Lunar Chronicles in Wires and Nerves so I’m really looking forward to this one! Iko is such a treasure.
I’ll be posting lots of updates and checking in regularly during the readathon on Twitter so make sure you follow me there! Next weekend I also plan on doing a recap post here, so stay tuned for that.
Are you participating in this round of 24in48? Is there a book on my TBR you think I should prioritize? Let me know in the comments!
