It’s time for my favorite, biannual readathon!! The #24in48 Readathon is a weekend-long readathon that takes place every January and July, wherein we try to read for 24 out of the 48 hours from 12AM EST Saturday until 12AM EST Monday. Some folks do a “half sweet” version where they read 12 hours. It doesn’t really matter – the goal is to read as much as you can in the 48 hour period. Please visit 24in48.com for more information and to sign up!
I’m keeping it simple this time. Last time, I went to the library and checked out a whole stack of things, and I didn’t even touch most of the them. This time I will be choosing mainly from the e-books I own on the Kindle app, focusing on the ones I have owned the longest. Some possibilities from my library are:
- The Stars are Legion by Kameron Hurley (gritty SFF)
- Thaw by Elyse Springer (ace romance)
- The Black Tide of Heaven and The Red Thread of Fortune by JY Yang (fantasy)
- Beginner’s Luck by Kate Clayborne (contemporary romance)
- Unfit to Print by KJ Charles (historical m/m romance)
- A Gentleman Never Keeps Score by Cat Sebastian (historical m/m romance)
- Ice Massacre by Tiana Warner (killer mermaids)
- Agnes Moor’s Wild Knight by Alyssa Cole (medieval romance)
- any number of Tessa Dare romances that live on my Kindle (too many to list tbh)
I’m going to stop there before I get too embarrassed about the amount of unread books in my Kindle library (curse you Kindle Daily Deals, you know I can’t resist an e-book priced 2.99 or less!). I will also be reading the mass market paperback of The Warrior’s Apprentice by Lois McMaster Bujold on and off.
For those unavoidable times where I have to leave the house, I will be listening to Falling Free by Lois McMaster Bujold on audio. Unfortunately, I do have book club Sunday afternoon, which means I will have to cram almost 24 hours of reading into the first 36 or so hours. It’s a good thing I’m not scheduled to come into work until 12PM Monday, because I am going to be so messed up from sleep deprivation and caffeine overload that I won’t be able to think straight.
Tell me what you plan to read!
