24in48 Readathon


This weekend the 24in48 hours readathon takes place. The rule is simple: reading for 24 hours in a span of 48 hours.

I did it last year and had so much fun so I decided to take part in it again although I'm not sure how much reading I could get done since I wanted to celebrate my birthday with my grandma and rest of the family this weekend so we can all be together even though my birthday isn't until next week. However, I know I would find some time to relax and read a couple of pages here and there. Here is my TBR:

  • The Ballroom by Anna Hope. An historical fiction novel set in the Edwardian era about an asylum in the Yorkshire moors. Can't get better than that really.
  • The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. A short story collection where the author explores the cultures of both Africa and the West.
  • What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi. Another short story collection - I think they are great for readathons because you can have breaks between each story - in which all stories are connected through the idea of keys.

I'll be updating my progress on Twitter and Instagram :)

Are you guys taking part as well in the readathon? If not, what are your plans for the weekend?
