Yesterday was Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! With this readathon, I never know if I’m going to do well or end up hardly reading anything, lol. This time around, however, I’m happy to say that I actually got a ton of reading done! 🎉 First, I finally finished There’s Someone in Your House! This was such a fast-paced and spooky read. After that, I listened to (and finished) Slasher Girls and Monster Boys… Read More

I’ve participated in this readathon a couple of times before and have always had so… Read More

Last Saturday was the semi-annual Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!  I decided to join in on the fun last minute, and I’m so glad I did, because even though I was busy in the evening and didn’t get to read the whole 24 hours, I still ended up reading so much more than I would have!! 🎉

Hello! I know I said I was going to get back into blogging, and then I’ve been silent since, but this time, I mean it! I’m back! 😅 Anyway, the title for this post pretty much gives it away: I’m participating in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon tomorrow!  I haven’t participated in the past few Dewey readathons and I’ve really missed it.  So, I know it’s last minute, but I’ve decided to just… Read More

Hello and happy October 1st!  October is such a fun and beautiful time of year.  I especially love reading mysterious, spooky, and atmospheric books around this time.  The past couple of months, I’ve been in a bit of reading slump, but that’s pretty much over now.  I have so many books I’m hoping to get to this month, and I’m planning on participating in two different readathons: the Hocus Pocus Readathon, which… Read More
