Hi everyone! hope you're all excited for this Readathon as much as we are!!
As mentioned previously, the 24-hour Readathon will commence January 1st on midnight, your time. For our first thread, we're all interested to know which books you're planning to read. For me, I'm thinking I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson.
Let's gooooo!

Happy reading everyone!


message 4: by Elle (new)

Elle (ellexamines) (ellexamines) I have no idea what I’m reading yet because it honestly depends on what I finish the next two days! But probably Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff.

MaryGrace | 54 comments I'm starting with Mosquitoland by David Arnold. Contrary to popular opinion, I really loved his other book, Kids of Appetite and I don't even like contemporary. and if this one makes me feel anything like that one did, it's perfect for the New Year.

message 18: by Viola (new)

Viola (violalid) | 2 comments I‘m planning on reading The Loneliest Girl In The Universe and This Savage Song. I‘m sooo excited


message 19: by Sabrien (new)

Sabrien Abdelrahman I mean it have 8 currently readings . . . *laughs nervously*
I'll probably finish Strange the Dreamer, maybe read Crooked Kingdom and a little bit of A Court of Mist and Fury? Or maybe also finish The Rose and the Dagger. Top two to finish are the ones I'm furthest in: the Rose and the Dagger and Strange the Dreamer. I know, my plans are a mess and tentative to change but it really just depends on my mood.

Talia  (tyu_47) | 1 comments I'm planning to read The Dazzling Heights and Rebel Genius (if I have time) with some webtoons/manga in case I get bored.

This is my first readathon, and although I won't be able to read the full 24 hours, I'm excited to be a part of it!

Warda (wsharif) | 9 comments Coffee for some reason does not have an effect on me. 😆😆 or maybe I need stronger coffee. 😅 about to start rereading The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue.

Good luck everyone!!!! 😁

message 39: by Warda (new)

Warda (wsharif) | 9 comments LOL Amy! Hope you recover soon from your drunkenness. 😆

I'm failing epically at this 24 hour thing. Bloody family getting in the way. 😭

Hope this readathon will happen regularly. 😁


sofia (sam willows) (samwillows) | 2 comments I’m reading They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera and probably another quick one bc I started the readathon at 2 pm lmao


message 41: by Sabrien (new)

Sabrien Abdelrahman Lol Amy go nurse your hangover, I'm sorry 😂. Hope you had fun at least and that it was worth the pain.
Same Warda. Also I have family members moving to anothe continent today so that's hectic, an originally we were all going to the airport and I know they would have been annoying about me reading and not talking to them. However, in a fortunate turn of events, there's no space in the car, so my whole family is leaving for the airport, taking my noisy siblings with them. . . and leaving me a quiet house to read peacefully in for a few hours in peace.

amy ☂︎  (doomslug) | 63 comments Mod
lmao thank you all for your support :-) i’m doing better but i’m failing terribly at reading today. i would definitely like for this to happen more often as well, so we’ll see.

happy reading to all of you who are still participating!
