Time spent reading: 12 hours 29 minutes
Pages read: 717
I reached my goal of 12 hours, woop! I’ve stopped well before the end of the weekend as I just wanted a bit of a break from reading, and I do have work tomorrow.
I’m not sure I liked using a stopwatch to record my reading time so accurately. It just made me realise I spend a lot of time not reading even when I think I’m spending the whole day with a book! I am not as disciplined with 24 in 48 as with Dewey’s, although I think that works OK for me and I am happy with the amount I read. I probably would have just finished The Belles and nothing else this weekend otherwise.
It would also help if I could just take a quick snapshot for my updates instead of fannying around with props. Alas I seem incapable.
The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton ****
Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire *****
The Tidal Zone by Sarah Moss *****
The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
I’ll be posting full reviews of these books in February but I am chuffed that I picked some fine books to read this weekend. Why have I waited so long to read Sarah Moss? The Tidal Zone was stunning. I’ll be readathonning again it April when Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon rolls round.
