This weekend is the 24 in 48 Readathon. Whilst I am a Dewey’s veteran, this in my first 24 in 48. If you don’t know the premise, it’s a bit more relaxed with the aim to read for 24 hours over the whole weekend. This also means people not in North America can start reading in the morning! Really I just need an excuse to boost my reading mojo as I have been terrible of late at weekends, with not much to show for my time off.

Sunday is Scully’s first birthday and we’re meeting her parents and siblings for a puppy reunion, so realistically my goal is 12 hours and two books, but if I can do more, great! Of course, my TBR is over-ambitious but I like to have a choice:

Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
Lost for Words by Stephanie Butland
Grief is the Thing with Feathers by Max Porter
After the Fire by Will Hill
The Waking Land by Callie Bates
Truth or Dare by Non Pratt
I Hate Fairyland by Skottie Young
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin

I’ll probably update here at the end of each day and more frequently on Twitter and Instagram. I am not going to be super strict with timing myself as I’m not that interested in prizes and I would most likely keep resetting my stopwatch by accident.
