Dewey’s 24 Hr Readathon – April 2020

It’s been a really long time since I’ve fully participated in the 24 Hour Readathon, and I thought it would be fun to dive in full force now that I’m enjoying my books again. So let’s get into to it! I don’t have any sort of actual plan, but I do have a lot of library holds coming in and a dangerous desire to dig into my kindle backlog. I wish I had some fancy photos of my books for this, but all of them are digital except like two.

Possible TBR for the Day

So I thought it would be fun to pick out some books from my kindle, which has almost 2000 books on it that I haven’t read, via a random number generator. So here are the ones I was given.

Reading Updates

TBR Projects – Unfinished Books & I’m Blue Blah Blah Blah

Hey everyone! Long time no see! I’ve had some issues in the past year when it comes to motivation and reading, and for the first time in my life I went months without reading. It was honestly the break I needed. I’m not saying I’m back to the way I was, but I’m definitely feeling a little better AND it helps that w’re all stuck in our in houses so boredom has kind of allowed me to pick up a book without wanting to shove in the trash can.

So as a way to ease myself in and read some of the books I’ve had lying around I have started making TBRs (purposely too large) to focus on for a week a so. I read those books and at the end of the week I make a new one, sometimes with the books I didn’t get to and sometimes not. It gives me structure but doesn’t make me feel like I HAVE to finish every time.

Here is the TBRs I’ve had in my absence.

Unfinished Books – April 9th -15th

These were some of the books I have started and left unfinished on my shelves. I figured this quaretine was the perfect time to tackle some of them, especially my book club picks, since my goal was to get it started again on Litsy.

  • Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb
  • The Book of Lost Tales Part One by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • Dragon Age: Tevinter Nights
  • A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe by Alex White
  • Sauerkraut by Kelly Jones
  • Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
  • Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin

Finished 3 of 7 books

I’m Blue – April 16th-23rd

This is kind of self explanatory, but for this one I picked books that had covers that were mainly blue. Of course the spines don’t match them, because the publishing industry hates consistency.

  • Physics of the Impossible by Michio Kaku
  • Dragon Age Tevinter Nights
  • Hard in High Town
  • Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
  • Howling Dark by Christopher Rucchio
  • Morning Star by Pierce Brown

In a few days I will hopefully post my next TBR project, and the wrap up of this week’s TBR. Just a heads up, I’m still not in a place where I want to review books. I’ve kind of moved away from it, and it doesn’t seem all that appealing anymore. It turned a hobby into work and I kind of resent it at the moment. But I will give my basic thoughts on the ones I finish.
