First things first, the snacks. Last time I had cheese balls I overdosed and seriously felt like I was hungover. These are PUFFS not balls, but more importantly they are in small packets so I will only have one or two. There will be a lot of coffee and I also have some fizzy vitamins to help banish tiredness. I’ve been a bit tired of late in general so I don’t know how I’m going to get through this.

I hope to have a proper meal in the evening but I didn’t get round to making anything in advance. Plus CRUMPETS. Crumpets make the world go round.

My mini challenge will be hour 20, which I think is 8am UK time. I hope you pop back to join in (even if you’ve abandoned reading and been sleeping).

So what am I reading? Here’s the shortlist. I will no way read all of these, 4 is my goal, it’d be nice to squeeze one more in as I have picked shorter reads. Tinder has loads of pictures in too…but I might get distracted looking at them.

Pssst, there are loads of copies of The Woken Gods to be won from the official prizes page.

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Bournemouth (on the south coast of England).

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
The Forever Song is the last part in a trilogy so I’m pretty excited about getting to that, but whether or not it happens today is another matter!

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I do like the wasabi peanut crackers and they’ve become a readathon tradition for me now.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!
I live by the beach and it’s the best in winter when it’s empty. I love cheese. And dinosaurs. I test software for a living and read a lot in my spare time. I’ve been blogging for 3 years now and this will be my 6th readathon. You can also find me on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, whatโ€™s one thing youโ€™ll do different today?
Last readathon I had really healthy snacks lined up…not sure what’s gone wrong this time!
