Didn't make the ultimate goal but read a lot longer than my first few Readathons! Best read: Passion of Dolssa. Bailed on two audiobooks and one print that weren't doing it for me. Until next time! #24in48

Some of my fave #bookishgear for the @24in48 #readathon challenge. The necklace was made by my sister. Peter Rabbit and Alice teapots, a Cat in the Hat pendant, a cat newspaper print dress, and a Penguin Classics tote. #24in48

Started @24in48 Readathon at 8 AM (as early as I could muster) with a religious text of sorts - The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Betty (on audio). This is the most religious thing I own, a book of Waterhouse paintings, full of martyred, chaste, and virtuous heroines. #24in48

Perfect for the reader who loved Nancy Drew, but wishes that series had more girls crushing on girls and less all-the-white-people.

I didn't think this would be for me (haven't been into alternative histories), but I loved this so much I immediately downloaded the sequel! Felix and Yael's relationship is immensely interesting to me and I am eager to see how her actions play out for him. My guess is NOT SO GREAT.

I probably don't need to convince you to read this but I will anyway: it's even better than Everything, Everything - Natasha and Daniel meet under unexpected and unfortunate circumstances - both struggling with family and their future. They're perfect for each other in an imperfect situation. Uber romantic and every character is enthralling and sympathetic for different reasons! Realistic but hopeful - MUST READ!

I found this book charming! A teen suggested it for book group and though I found the premise a little weird, it ended up being a breath of fresh air. The silly plot is well balanced by great relationships and self-aware narration. We ate blackberries for King Edward.

Bkwrm7 I adored this book! I didn't expect it to be so ridiculously fun, but it really was. I hope they cover Mary, Queen of Scots next! 3y

Still enjoying this series! The colors are my favorite. But it's got tons going for it. Awesome cast of girls, diverse hero, giant water bears and interesting take on time travel/universes, still not sure where it's headed exactly or who to trust!

So far I'm enjoying the miniseries much more than the book series, but above all I enjoyed the coconut cream cake I made to enjoy while watching The Reptile Room I and II. Not sure how long I can deal with the "adults never listen to children" trope though - certainly not for 13 books!

OceanCityMama I just read the first one and thought the same- how can this go on for so many books?! (edited) 3y
LauraBeth Oohhh - this looks delicious! I have this cake book but don't think I've made this coconut cake 🍰 3y
LizGotauco It was great, @LauraBeth but I also have made the cover cake and I think I prefer that one. 3y

The writing has always been the weak point of this series, but this volume was particularly bad. Plotting was super-choppy, and even the art fell flat for me a bit. I did enjoy seeing Pizzazz's vulnerable side and that Rio is more of a stand-up guy in this series. I'll probably stop here, despite my fierce Jen fan girl love.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina | Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Not the TGIF Teenage Witch you remember! This was fun, campy, kinda gross if you can't handle bloody occult type of horror, and very well rendered. Definitely a little pin-up like with the ladies art but it fit in with the world of the comic and is balanced by its many powerful women. Some dark twists and fun winks to the characters and the genre. Plus, Salem!

That awkward moment where you start reading a comic about the civil rights movement but it doesn't feel like much has changed.
