Dewy's 24 Hour Read-a-thon Fall 2015

Let's get this party started!  I've got my snacks my books and my kitties.

3rd And Final Update
I finished my second book, Ruby Oliver #4. I serisouly loved these books. I couldn't have asked for a better ending! I at pizza for dinner and put all the snacks away. I'm thinking I need ice cream though. After that I'll probably dig into another book and read till I fall asleep! It's been great as usual. Good luck to those who are sticking with it for the 24 hrs! You guys rock!

Update 2 5:10pm
I finished a book! YAY! Last time 'round, I didn't even finish one book. Anywho, I finished The Fill In Boyfriend. Meh. It was OK and a good read-a-thon read as it was fast and easy but it just didn't do it for me. I read a chapter in The Happiness Project. That's about all this pessimist can handle at a time. Now I'm going to start in on Ruby Oliver #4 Real Live Boyfriends. Very bittersweet finishing this series! I finished off my bag of Gummy Bears but haven't really eaten too much else. My husband has gone to get pizza for dinner, though. How's things going in your neck of the woods?

Update 1 1:45pm

It's been about five hours and I've only read about 200 pages. Sigh! I'm such a slow reader! I've broken into my Gummy Bears and Chex mix and feel delightfully sick! I've been posting on Instagram. My kitties have both passed out. I've been reading The Fill In Boyfriend. It's OK but I'm not blown away by it. I think  I'll take a break and take a shower, stretch and finish The Fill In Boyfriend and start on Ruby Oliver #4. Happy Reading!

I'll be honest,  in my neck of the woods the read-a-thon starts at 6am. I never get going that early and I usually pass out at midnight.  I'm not as awesome as you hardcore read-a-thoners. My hats off to you.

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
Orem UT USA.

2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Definitely the final book in the Ruby Oliver series.

3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?

All of them! I tried to get a nice selection of salty and sweet.

4) Tell us a little something about yourself!

My name's Jenny. I'm married to the hottest guy ever and have two kitties. I may or may not be considering the crazy cat lady life! Obviously I love to read and am in the middle of building a library for all my books!

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?

I try to participate every read-a-thon and I usually do the same old thing. Maybe this time I'll actually participate in a mini challenge or two.

I'll be posting my updates here throughout the day. Happy reading!


  1. We manage to get up... those first few hours are the best for me! But yeah, we crash at midnight for sure...

    1. I'm not big into losing sleep for reading. Does that mean I'm not a true book lover?

  2. Ha ha -- Are you going to finish THE HAPPINESS PROJECT? It's pretty good.

  3. Two books in 24 hours?! Congrats! I participated in a read-a-thon when I started blogging. I think it was a week long. I obviously wasn't as stressed for time as you were.
    ps. I'm right there with you on the crazy cat lady thing. The Mister and I have no kids... except for the fur-babies. LoL
