Wow, what a wild ride. The first #24in48 of 2016 is over. I had a great time. I didn’t get to read as much as I wanted to due to the oldest spawn being sick, but I still met my goal and I had fun which is the most important thing. I got a good stack of books off my TBR shelves (which I’m sure will be filled rather quickly).
Here’s the wrap up.
I read nine books, but only finished seven. Those books are
- Silver by Rhiannon Held (finished)
- The Cinderella Deal by Jennifer Crusie (finished)
- Dryland by Sara Jaffe (finished)
- Bright Lines by Tanwi Nandini Islam
- Bright Lines (finished)
- Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey (finished)
- American Housewife by Helen Ellis (finished
- The Murstone Trilogy by Mal Peet (in progress)
- Passenger by Alexandra Bracken (in progress)
Total time read: 15.75 hours (Goal was 12)
Pages read: 1,751
I was surprised that 3 out of the 9 books had LGBT characters. I didn’t plan it that way, but being that I’m taking my recommendations from places like Book Riot, my selections are becoming more organically inclusive. The three books are Dryland, Bright Lines, and Santa Olivia. I’m tentatively saying three because I haven’t finished The Murdstone Trilogy or Passenger.
I only had one AoC, but that one is on me because I swapped to only my print stack instead of my digital stack where I had more AoC picked out.
I’m deciding right now if I’m going to go ahead and work through this stack I worked out (both digital and print) or start fresh. I think I got through the ones I was super excited to read, at least in print since I never touched the digital shelves.
If you participated how do your stats look? did you have fun? Would you change anything about your strategy for next time? By the way that’s going to be July 23-24 so start planning your book stack now.
