Dewey’s Pre-Readathon To-Be-Read List

Dewey’s is hosting a pre-readathon before the actual 24-hour readathon on October 24th. I gave you a link to the announcement page where it describes everything about it. I don’t think I’ll complete 15 books by the 24th, but I’ll try to get to a few of these. I picked ones that were already high on my list.

Read a long book (over 500 pages)

I read the first book, The Lies of Locke Lamora, and I absolutely loved it. There’s no doubt that I’ll love this one, too. It has an amazing cast of characters and the plot is *chef’s kiss.*

Read a short book (under 250 pages)

I picked this up from a used bookstore not too long ago. I’ve always wanted to read Toni Morrison, but I never knew where to start. I think I’ve decided it’s going to be this one.

Pick 5 of your favorite genres and enter them in a randomizer. Read a book in that genre

The randomizer chose contemporary. My friend gifted me an ARC of this one, and I’ve been wanting to pick it up ever since.

Read a “spooky” book (your own definition of spooky is fine)

I’m not sure if this is spooky, but the synopsis is so weird. I’m not sure what to expect with this one. All I know is that it’s been getting a lot of hype lately.

Read a book that is 75% one color on the cover

I’ve heard that this book has a lot of sex talk. I’ve also heard that it talks about the porn industry, which isn’t talked about in books. I’m interested to see what it has to say.

Read a book that was published in the last 18 months

This was published in September, and it sounds like such a fun YA novel. I don’t read YA often, so I try to choose carefully.

Read a book that was published more than 100 years ago

I mainly just want to read this and watch the movie everyone raved about.

Read a book set in the Fall or with a cover that looks like it is Fall (leaves changing, etc)

This book probably doesn’t give anyone else Fall vibes, but I think it’s very Fall. I think it’s mainly the orange / yellow flower.

Read a book set in the Spring or with a cover that looks like it is Spring (trees blooming, etc)

If that cover doesn’t scream Spring, then I don’t know what does. It’s so bright and blue / green. I’ve also heard wonderful things about this author.

Read at least 75% of a book when it’s dark outside

I mainly read at night, so this challenge won’t be hard at all. This one is bound to be an adventure. There’s no way Turton wouldn’t deliver.

Read at least 75% of a book outside (please social distance… a park or back patio will do fine)

I’ve watched the tv show twice, and I fell in love. I knew I wanted to read the graphic novel series that takes place after the show. So far, so good.

Read a book with an animal (real or made up) on the cover

I can’t believe I haven’t read this one, yet. The cover obviously has a little tea dragon on the front cover. These graphic novels are just too adorable. I love them so much.

Read a book with a main character or author whose first name starts with the same letter as your first name

My name starts with a V and so does Schwab’s. I have this one checked out from the library, and I plan to buddy read it with a friend.

Take five books you really want to read and put them in a randomizer and read whichever one is chosen

I started and finished The Duchess Deal in one day. I thought it was well done. I’m excited to read book two in this series. This is actually the one I heard about first.

Read a book that is set in a location you wish you could visit or live in. This location can be real or imaginary

Why do I keep putting this one off? I’m sure you’re all sick of reading about it from me. It’s one of my most anticipated reads of 2020. It takes place in Australia, and I’ve always wanted to visit.
