Bookish peeps, it finally is that time again: Dewey’s readathon! I am so looking forward to this weekend – Saturday (Oct 20th) will be spent reading, eating, blogging, and being utterly happy. September and October have been a pretty bad struggle bus for me. I have read very little, I am late on any of my blogs, and I have been overall pretty detached from my books and book clubs. All this will change this weekend. I am going to use the readathon to find my way back to my lovelies. With it being fall and nearly Halloween, and with me (technically) participating in a few other spooky themed readathons, I will focus on reading only the creepy, the weird, the odd, and the dubious.
Here are a few ideas:
- I have a plethora of Goosebumps books to choose from.
- I could finish The Picture of Dorian Gray (Popsugar category) or Salt (an ARC).
- I could start
- Supernatural Tales or The Bloody Chamber (which are both collections of short stories)
- Something Wicked This Way Comes (an October group read-a-long of another readathon)
- From a Buick 8, Everything’s Eventual, Let the Right One In, or The Stand (which all would fulfill one or another Popsugar category)
- Year One (Nora Robert’s first real journey into the creepy paranormal genre)
- Sharp Objects (which would be fitting since I read Gone Girl during a past Dewey’s readathon)
- All the Hannibal Lecter books
- The Sandman Vol.3 (I have read the first two of this series during other readathons)
- Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (I adore that cover!)
- Revival (more Stephen King)
- Planet of the Apes … .
- Every other book I forgot to think of.
Just writing out this list of potentials gets me even more pumped for Saturday. Now, I just need to think of my snacks. I already picked out my reading nook in the new house and hope I will have lots of virtual reading dates with each and every one of you.
P.S.: Maybe I will manage to take some pictures of my TBR for the blog. I am still waiting on a few library copies to come through.
