Dannii Elle (danniiellereads) | 350 comments I usually stick solely to YA for my readathons, as I typically find them to be faster-paced reads, but this year's tbr seems to feature mainly classics. These are a mixture of both recent acquisitions and books that have lingered on my shelves unread for far too long.

Most were sent recently to me from publishers and so I am eager to get to them all, soon. The Isle of Gold has the most interesting first page so I am most eager to start with that one.

Best of luck if you are participating in this round :)

It was really good. I think my final rating is 3.75 stars as I wanted a little more from the ending. I'm on to my fourth cup now. I've managed two hours of sleep but feel a nap may be needed, later. Good luck with the rest of your readathon :)

I luckily managed a little nap before kick-off and a lot of these pages are audio 'pages' too :)

Angie | 159 comments Wow, more than 500 pages, that's very impressive. (I managed a measly 100 so far) Congratulations!
Good luck for the rest of the read-a-thon!
