I've got a plan, now for the books. Following my own tips in the previous post, the books in my stack for the 24 Hour Read-a-thon this weekend are all either short, and/or include pictures, or are YA ones that are supposedly very quick, suspenseful reads.
Big in Japan: A Ghost Story by M. Thomas Gammarino -- A new book coming out at the beginning of November from the lovely people at Chin Music Press. It would be great if I could read it this weekend but either way I'll be reading it soon.
The Vampire of Ropraz by Jacques Chessex -- This one is so short, it's a novella really. I'm thinking of reading this one late at night, when the house is quiet....
The Frozen Deep by Wilkie Collins -- Another short one, this is the book I'll be reviewing for The Classics Circuit Wilkie Collins' tour next month.
The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins -- I'm leaning towards starting with The Hunger Games since I'll be starting my reading early and will have a few hours of uninterrupted reading before the read-a-thon officially begins.
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness -- I'm not sure I'll read this during the read-a-thon, especially if I read The Hunger Games and maybe Catching Fire as well, but I've heard such good things about it it's on the stack anyway.
French Milk by Lucy Knisley -- A graphic novel for when I'm getting sleepy.
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie -- Not a graphic novel but it does have lots of illustrations and generally looks like it'll be a fun read.
Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 by David Petersen -- The art in these books is so gorgeous; perfect for tired eyes.
The Three Incestuous Sisters by Audrey Niffenegger (not shown) -- Ditto on being good for when my eyes are tired of too many words.
I'm looking forward to all of them but am probably most excited to finally read The Hunger Games since there's been so much buzz about this series.
What book(s) are you most looking forward to reading during the read-a-thon?
