Hour 1

Yeees! Time for the 24 in 48 Readathon. That means: this weekend I am going to try to read as much as possible (or 24 hours). I have been looking forward to this for weeks. Sit down and read. It starts at 6 a.m. for me, so I need to wake up a bit, but… here we go!

Hour 2

And that was one hour of reading. Right now I am on 56 minutes, so that is a good start! I haven’t really had breakfast, so that is what I am going to do soon. For now I started with Shadow Wave, written by Robert Muchamore. This is a book of the Cherub series which I started a long time ago. With this series I know what to expect, so this is my typical readathon read. I am curious at how this one is.

Where are you from? Where are you now? If you could do readathon from anywhere in the world, where would you be?
I come from the Netherlands, from the province Groningen. I am not in the middle of the country at my boyfriend’s house. If I could read from anywhere? Probably a nice warm country or a old classic library
Have you done 24in48 before? How many times?!
I have done a few readathons before, but I think this is my third time for the 24in48 readathon.
Are you readathon-ing alone?
Yes I am! My boyfriend is not a big reader and I like to rest alone right now. However, I would like it to do a readathon with someone else some day.
What book are you kicking 24in48 off with? What book are you most excited about this weekend?
I have started with Shadow Wave by Robert Muchamore. The book I am most excited about is Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. I have heard a lot about this book, but I have not read it yet.
Since it’s the beginning of a new year, what are your reading resolutions for 2019?
I think I just want to read 50 books again. And I want to have fun! Isn’t that the most important?

And the first six hours are gone. And I already finished my first book! Shadow wave was really interesting. But these books are always interesting. And there is action. And there is suspense. This is the twelfth book of this series, so I know that I like these books.

I have read about 350 pages and 4 hours and 15 minutes. I have the idea that I am doing great, so I will go on for a while. Now it is time for lunch and after that I am going to read De Jasmijnzussen (I found out that this book does not have an English translation! :o). It is about a woman whose husband has had an accident. She goes to her great-grandmother to get help and she starts to talk about her own youth. I sounds really interesting, so I am curious how it will be.

This is the dedication in the Trials of Apollo, written by Rick Riordan

Hour 13

And we have had twelve hours of reading. I am doing great. I have read about 8.5 hours, which is not as much as I hoped, but the book I am reading now is really really interesting. De Jasmijnzussen written by Corina Bomann tells mainly the story of a woman who grew up in Vietnam. Her story is quite shocking, but also really interesting.

Now it is time for dinner. Mac ‘n cheese. Mjam.

Hour 18

18 hours. And that means that I have been awake for 18 hours. Phew. I have started to feel the tiredness. But I finished the second book! De Jasmijnzussen was a really nice read. It was quite shocking, but also hopeful at the end. I am so happy that I bought this book.

Now it is time to go to bed and start strong tomorrow reading more beautiful books.
