Once again it's time for Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon.
This will be my 7th time I'm participating (I thought it will be the 6th, but I was wrong, it's actually my 7th time, it's good that I checked ^_^).
To sign up, visit this post HERE!
As always, the read-a-thon for me starts at 2 pm on Saturday, and ends at 2 pm on Sunday.
On Twitter we'll use #dewey ; #readathon ; or #rahrahreadathon .
The last time I did everything in one post, so I decided to do that again, I'll just update this post with the mini challenges I'll participate in, as well as my reading progress & the wrap up in the end.
My Reading List:
Of course I won't read all of these, I just want to have a variety, so I have 3 graphic novels: A Match Made in Heaven, Courtney Crumrin Volume 3: The Twilight Kingdom & The Wolves in the Walls. Also, there's Chris Priestley's Christmas Tales of Terror - a collection of horror stories, which are usually intertwined, at least that was the case with all of his previous Tales of Terror, and I loved them, so I'm looking forward to this one quite a lot. Then the last Soul Screamers book With All My Soul, as well as Poison - a fairy-tale-like fun novel, and Speechless - a contemporary YA. There's also a good possibility I'll continue reading The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, which I finally started a couple of days ago, and so far I'm enjoying it a lot.
Happy Reading Everyone & Have Fun!!!
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
- My home at Skopje, Macedonia.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
- Chris Priestley's Christmas Tales of Terror
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
- orange flavoured cocoa muffins with chocolate (yum)
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
- My #1 fav author is Neil Gaiman, my #1 fav tv show is Doctor Who, and my #1 fav book is Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (since it was published, I've read it 3 times, and I can easily read it right away from cover to cover, I can never get enough of it).
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
- This is my 7nd time in a row that I've been participating in this read-a-thon, and I don't think I'll do anything different, just do some reading, blog hop, participate in mini challenges & have fun!

My sentence from Doctor Who: Devil in the Smoke by Justin Richards: "I would rather read than disappear into the shadowy limits of the roof space any day!".
End of Event Meme:
- Which hour was most daunting for you? - Probably hour 11 - but only because I fell asleep while reading, and didn't wake until hours later.
- Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year? - Speechless by Hannah Harrington was a surprisingly fun & fast read, and graphic novels are always a good choice, as well as anything from Neil Gaiman.
- Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year? - No, everything was absolutely awesome!
- What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon? - I think everything worked awesome, but I have to mention that all the cheerleaders did a fantastic job!
- How many books did you read? - I read 5 books.
- What were the names of the books you read? - Neil Gaiman's graphic novel The Wolves in the Walls, Hannah Harrington's Speechless, Doctor Who: Devil in the Smoke by Justin Richards, Chris Priestley's Christmas Tales of Terror & the graphic novel A Match Made in Heaven by Trina Robbins.
- Which book did you enjoy most? - It's actually a tie between The Wolves in the Walls, Speechless & Doctor Who: Devil in the Smoke - I absolutely love these 3, and they're great reads for a read-a-thon.
- Which did you enjoy least? - I did like them, but I have to go with the other 2 reads: Christmas Tales of Terror & A Match Made in Heaven, although they were still fast reads.
- If you were a Cheerleader, do you have any advice for next year’s Cheerleaders? - I wasn't a Cheerleader, but I have to say that they were awesome, so keep up the great cheering :)
- How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time? - I'm 99,9% sure I'll participate again, I haven't missed one since the 1st time I participated. I will definitely join as a reader, and I might join the cheering, too.
Ok, so 6 hours has passed, and I read Neil Gaiman's The Wolves in the Walls graphic novel (loved it), and I'm still reading Speechless by Hannah Harrington, and so far I'm loving it. I have 100 pages to go.
I finished Speechless & I read Doctor Who: Devil in the Smoke by Justin Richards.
I also read Chris Priestley's Christmas Tales of Terror. The stories were ok, and I liked them, but just not as good as Chris Priestley's other Tales of Terror.
I also read the graphic novel A Match Made in Heaven.
Ok, so the read-a-thon was awesome. I did pretty good, although I wish I participated in more mini challenges. The 5 books I read are those above in my updates, and I also read 20 pages from The Shadow of the Wind. So, that's about it. See ya next time!
