Dewey’s 24h Readathon – 2016

Hi there!

This weekend it’s readathon time. I try to participate in both editions, every year but as always the amount of reading I get done depends on how much entertainment my little prince and princess need.

For me, the readathon starts at 2PM. I’ll probably get most of my reading done in the evening or early on Sunday morning.

I’d been thinking about what to read and decided on finishing some books that I had put down before. Books that I’ve been in the middle of for ages.

So without further ado, here’s my TBR for this edition of Dewey’s 24h Readathon.

The Historian – Elizabeth Kostova

I really liked this book when I started reading it. I thought it was very original and also liked the flow of the story. After a while, however, the pacing got a bit slow. Too slow.. and I decided that I’d rather read something else. So, I marked the spot where I left off and put it back on my shelf.

I have 176 pages left to read..

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde – Robert Louis Stevenson

And once again.. I really liked this book. I’ve read it before for school when I was 15. Back then I read it in Dutch and when I found this pretty edition, I immediately wanted to read it again. Stuff happened, things got between me and my reading and the book ended up back on its shelf, unfinished. Time to change that!

I have 134 pages left to read..

The Puppet Boy of Warsaw – Eva Weaver

 

This is my current read. I don’t actually like reading a million books at once so I’d like to finish this one as well before I pick up anything else. The story is very good so far and I’m curious to see what happens next.

Here, I have 283 pages left to read.

Which means a total of 593 pages… That’s quite a lot…

Like always, I’m not sure how much I’ll actually be able to read but I’ll give it my best shot.

Are you participating? Leave me a link to your TBR or Twitter page so that I can see your progress.. because the best thing about the readathon, is the community reading together, cheering each other on, just generally having fun.

Love

Ellen
