Starting Line – #MGReadathon

It’s been quite a while since Mother Reader hosted her beloved 48-Hour Readathons, so I’m very excited that Karen at Ms. Yingling Reads is hosting one this weekend! Naturally, even though I worked Friday and have a baby shower on the other side of the state on Saturday , I had to sign up. I don’t expect to break any records, just have a lot of fun.

Here’s what I have lined up to read:

I first heard about It’s the End of the World and I’m in my Bathing Suit by Justin A. Reynolds from Betsy Bird at a Fuse #8 Production. I had to wait a while to get it from the library, but it’s a perfect time of year to read it!

Just being by Erin Entrada Kelly is reason enough to read Those Kids from Fawn Creek.

“Inner-city magic school” was enough for me to say “Yes, please!” to an ARC of A Taste of Magic by J. Elle, coming out in August.

I read about this book in Bookpage and purchased it for the school media center based on that review. Now I want to read Answers in the Pages by David Levithan for myself!

I don’t honestly know much about Zia Erases the World by Bree Barton apart from seeing it pop up regularly in the weekly round-ups at Charlotte’s Library, but it was on the shelf at the library when I did a mad dash checking out books in case I might not have enough to fill the weekend. I can be optimistic, right?

And just because I needed even more to read, and heard good things about it from Your Tita Kate, I checked out Nura and the Immortal Palace by M.T. Khan from Libby.

I’m currently listening to Valentina Salazar is NOT a Monster Hunter by Zoraida Cordova on Hoopla based on Charlotte’s review.

And finally, my next-in-line audiobook is The Last Fallen Moon by Graci Kim, sequel to The Last Fallen Star.

I’m sending good reading vibes to everyone else participating! And there’s still time to join up if you’re interested.

    Lots of good titles. Glad you’re able to join us, even with the baby shower. Hope that’s not TOO painful and you can get back to your reading quickly.

    I hope you enjoyed your baby shower today, and I love your resolve to cram books in despite your busy schedule! I’ve heard great things about Those Kids From Fawn Creek, Answers in the Pages, and It’s the End of the World and I’m In my Bathing Suit. Good luck with the challenge, Katy!

      Thank you, Max! I did enjoy the baby shower (and my son and I listened to All Systems Red on the way to and from – definitely not middle grade, but still good reading.) I hope the challenge is going well for you, too!
