My First Dewey Readathon + Spring Into Horror! = Lots of Reading!

24 Apr

Beautiful Dewey’s Readathon button, created by Michelle of The True Book Addict, who always finds terrific pictures of women reading!

In celebration of the good side of peer pressure, I’ve just signed up for my first Dewey’s Readathon! I will be doing this in tandem with Michelle’s Spring Into Horror Read-a-thon, which is already underway this week and ending Sunday night (in the US).

Spring into Horror Read-a-thon

This is also created by Michelle, for her blog Seasons of Reading, where she hosts her seasonal Read-a-thons.

I have already described my Read-a-thon reading list, which includes Dan Simmons’ new take on Sherlock Holmes, The Fifth Heart, as well as the original stories of the Brothers Grimm.  I will probably add some Outlander, specifically Book 2, Dragonfly in Amber, and I know I’ll be taking a break in the evening to watch the next installment of the “Outlander” series on STARZ! 🙂  I’m looking forward to visiting blogs and checking in with folks all day on Twitter (@Fictional100)!

    Good for Outlander!! I’m also a fan, and I have read the series twice, except the last book, that I still have to read it for the first time, haha.
    The first three books are the best. And the beginning of Dragonfly in amber is going to shock you, for sure!
    I’m so excited you are participating in the readathon too 😀
    Regarding the horror one, that’s not for me because I’m a chicken and I can’t read or watch horror books and films haha.

      Thanks so much, Isi, for stopping by and commenting and for your encouragement! I am just reading mysteries, so hopefully not too scary. 🙂 I am well into Dragonfly in Amber, and it was indeed surprising! Glad that flashbacks (or memory) continue to tell Claire and Jamie’s story together. I would miss them, if they receded too much into the background.

    Hope you got a lot of reading in, Lucy! Thanks again for joining me. Don’t forget to add your wrap-up link. I’ve extended the deadline through Wednesday. 🙂
