This weekend is THE moment. The 24 in 48 Readathon! In this readathon it is the goal the read as much as possible in 48 hours, with the ultimate goal to read at least 24 hours. You would think that that would be easy, but trust my experience: It isn’t. But being prepared is already half the work! (Including getting the perfect amount of snacks of course). But the other good preparation is to already think about which books you want to read. And that’s why I am sharing with you my TBR (To Be Read)!
Eve of Man – Giovanna and Tom Fletcher
This book has been in my bookcase for quite a while. I am actually very hyped to read this book, but therefore the expectations are so high that I don’t dare to read it. Quite difficult, right? Well, now is the moment for change, because this weekend I’m going to read this book! The book is a dystopian of some sorts in which girls are not born anymore. Only boys are born, which leads to a risk of extinction of the human race. But then Eve gets born. And after that I don’t know anything, but I am very curious.
The Kingdom – Jess Rothenberg
This book has not been that long on my to read list. I added this book to my TBR on Goodreads like a year ago and I borrowed it from the library. I am very curious about how this book will go. It is about a fantasy theme park named “The Kingdom”, where there are android princesses that will entertain the visitors. Then one android falls in love with an employee, which is against her programming. And when the employee is found dead she is accused of murder. Very intriguing and very interesting.
The Serpent’s Shadow – Rick Riordan
I can’t do a readathon without reading at least one book by Rick Riordan. So here it is! This is The Serpent’s Shadow, the third book in the Kane Chronicles series. This series is about Egyptian mythology, which is quite interesting. I know a lot more about Roman and Greek mythology, so it is cool to learn something new. In this book Carter and Sadie Kane are going to fight against Apophis. But the magic is old and Carter and Sadie are just human children. It promises to be very thrilling and I am very interested in the final showdown.
Critical Role Vox Machina Origins Volume 2 – Matthew Mercer, Jody Houser, Olivia Samson, MSASSYK and Ariana Maher
And then last but not least I have added a graphic novel to my list. I haven’t read graphic novels for that long and I haven’t read a lot of them, but I really want to get more into them. I know it is nice to read graphic novels during readathons, because they are a bit more easy to read. This is the second volume of the Vox Machina series from Critical Role, a story of before the D&D group started recording their sessions, if I understood correctly. I was very happy with the first volume so I am very excited to read the second one.
And that was my TBR for the next readathon! I will put online one blog this Saturday in which I will update you on my progress. The readathon starts at 6 a.m. CET on Saturday and it will run through 6 a.m. on Monday (though I can assure you I won’t be reading at that time).
Have you ever participated in a readathon? Do you like the idea?
