#24in48 – Readathon TBR



It’s readathon time once more! What’s #24in48? It’s a laidback readathon in which you’ve got 48 hours in which to read for 24 hours if you can. Here’s the details from #24in48:

If you’re new to 24in48, this is the basic gist: beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, participants read for 24 hours out of that 48-hour period. You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, four hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six four-hour sessions with four hour breaks in between, whatever you’d like.

I decided only yesterday to join my first #24in48 this weekend, but I’ve got my tbr ready! I’m dependent on e-books, so no pretty stack sadly, but have some pretty cover pics instead. This is mostly so I’ve got lots of reading material ready, not how many books I’m likely to read 😀 I’m trying for 2-3.


devils wake

The Devil’s Wake by Steven Barnes and Tananarive Due

Tananarive Due is one of my favorite writers, so I thought I’d give this zombie apocalypse she co-wrote with her writer husband a try. Also, I’m trying for more escapist lit this readathon.

like a mule

Like a Mule Bringing Ice Cream to the Sun by Sarah Ladipo Manyika

Got some Cassava Republic titles I’ve been wanting to get to for quite a while. This one is about a retired Nigerian professor, Morayo, living in San Francisco and having to deal with aging after a bad fall.


The Lazarus Effect by H.J. Golakai

Also, a Cassava title and an awesome-sounding mystery involving a missing girl set in South Africa. The sleuth is Liberian Vee Johnson, a journalist and apparently this might be the first book in a series!


When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

Thanks to a kindle deal, I might finally get around to reading this one. Romance is not my genre at all, but I’ll give it a try to see what the fuss is about.


The Conjoined by Jen Sookfong Lee

I started this one a couple months back but forgot all about it, so I might try again for the readathon. The combination of family drama and thriller sounds exciting.


And some books that are not WOCreads: Stakesauce by RoAnna Sylver, Feed by Mira Grant, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers.

  1. Long Way and Dimple are both great books. Dimple is fun and a quick read so it should keep you going for the readathon. I’m playing too but not sure exactly what I’ll be reading yet.

    1. Thanks, that does great, hope I’ll get to them this weekend. Total mood reader, but hope I’ll read some 📚 from my list 😁
      Happy readathoning! Hope to catch your updates in social media!


  2. I am doing it, thanks to you and Janani alerting me to the fact that it was going on. Thank you so much, it’s been fabulous! I have finished six books and I am feeling great about myself. They are all short so it’s not that much of an accomplishment but I love reading down my library stack.
