Dewey’s readathon has kicked off and I am (not so) ready! It seems that time flies and suddenly you were supposed to sit and read, but you are thrashing through the last few points on your to-do list for the day. I wanted to take some pictures before I got started, so I could update this blog post with photos along the way and not be dependent on good lighting, but now I think I’ll end up taking a break and do some photos then in stead. Oops.
However, reading should also be done! I am going to be active here and on Instagram, and feel free to drop by.
The stack for this Readathon
As mentioned in my previous post I expect to read (some – if not most – of) six books. The books I plan to read are a mix of different genres and are chosen partly because of that.
Final Girls by Riley Sager. 440 pages.
Hot Mess by Lucy Vine. 248 pages.
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. 207 pages.
Call Me by Your Name by André Aciman. 248 pages.
Sindstequila by Sofie Riis Endahl. 267 pages.
Hvis der skulle komme et menneske forbi by Thomas Korsgaard. 314 pages.
I forgot to make hummus! It’s so bad! But I will have to make it later. I did however shop both fruits and vegetables, and cookies and candy. So I think I will be set. I’ve made smoothie and bought and ice cream for later. The dinner has been taken care of and there’s not much left for me to do, but read.
Final Girls by Riley Sager
Final Girls will be my first read for today. I’ve wanted to read it for so long and I finally got my hands on it at my library. I will be reading it in the Danish translation, which I am quite excited to do! I normally prefer to read books in their source language, but lately I’ve been very fond of reading in Danish.
I don’t really have a lot of expectations for this readathong-wise. Or, that may have come out wrong. What I mean is that I hope to finish it today/tonight, but I am not sure I will. I have high expectations for it bookwise. I have heard many good things about it and I am very much in the mood for a thriller right now! Also; both Karin Slaughter and Stphen King has praised it, so i really hope I’ll love it!
What are your first read for today?
19:12 – 5 hours into the readathon
I am halfway through Final Girls and really enjoying it! Although one of the characters annoy me so much it almost makes me want to put down the book and start something else. But the story is great and I want to keep reading it! I also like how the chapters are put together.
I should probably eat dinner by now, but I do not feel hungry. So I ate a kiwi instead and took a banana and a bag of store-bought cinnamon rolls (kanelgifflar) with me to the sofa. I’ve also eaten a pound of carrots with hummus since the readathon began, so maybe that’s why I don’t feel particularly hungry.
I will keep updating this post for the entire readathon!
