Book Blogger Hop: Readathon Edition
Today is Friday which means it's time for Crazy-for-Books Book Blogger Hop. This is my first week signing up (for this blog at least).
If you're new to the blog, you should know that it's all about books, all the time. I review a little bit of everything: MG, YA, Adult. Almost all genres: realistic fiction, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, romance, classics, etc. About the only thing you won't see covered here are westerns! Oh, I forgot, also no dead dogs.
Are you planning on participating in Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon tomorrow? I am! And I'm so excited!!!
I don't know that I have an official plan.
I don't know about you, but I find it dangerous to make a stack of books too much ahead of time when it comes to the read-a-thon. If I had made a stack last weekend, I'm sure I wouldn't have been able to resist reading those books all week long. I just don't have will power. So while it's definitely not easy to hold off on making a list, making a pile of books, it's a bit wiser...for me.
These are just the books I'm considering. I've been known to stray off the list completely in the past.
The Thirteenth Princess by Diane Zahler (good for the Once Upon A Time challenge)
The Best and Hardest Thing by Pat Brisson (because it's a verse novel)
Gone by Lisa McMann
The Runaway Dragon by Kate Coombs (good for the Once Upon a Time challenge)
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Leviathan
Olympians: Zeus: King of the Gods. (because it's a graphic novel)
A Nest for Celeste by Henry Cole
Splendor by Anna Godbersen
