You may know if you’ve followed my blog for a little bit, but Destiny of Howling Libraries is my BFF/squish. She is, in fact, the best bean. She’s the reason I started my book blog and the reason I haven’t dropped out of our library school program yet. She’s also decided that she’s doing an impromptu readathon this weekend, and therefore so am I. ^_^
If you’d like to join this or any future surprise readathons, Destiny made a Goodreads group.
The first readathon runs from Saturday March 2nd to Tuesday March 5th. I’ll keep a running thread of my reads on Twitter and my next weekly update will be a more official wrap up.
- Read a book with diverse rep: The Last 8 by Laura Pohl. This comes out on the 5th so it’s my first priority for this weekend. It’s also queer YA sci-fi, which is possibly the perfect combination of genres.
- Read something short (graphic novel, poetry collection, novella, etc.): “Sister, Dearest Sister, Let Me Show You the Sea” by Seanan McGuire. This short story is in the collection The Devil and the Deep: Horror Stories of the Sea edited by Ellen Datlow. Ocean horror is a thing I love, so when I saw this collection was only $1.99 on Kindle I couldn’t resist. Then Destiny told me there was a Seanan McGuire story in it that she loved and… well, here we are.
- Read something with your favorite color on the cover: Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy. Purple is my favorite color, and since I also really need to finish this I’m going to say that the nice magenta-blue color on this cover is close enough.
There it is! Have you read any of these. Anyone else doing the readathon with us? Let me know in the comments.
