Readathon April 2016: Early Start

It’s that time of year where I remember that I have a blog and finally update, spamming the blog with Readathon posts!

I’ve been gathering my TBR pile for the event and even made a trip to the library after (over) a year of not visiting.

I’m starting a bit early, as I know I will fall asleep but also i want to finish Lolita by Vladimir Nobokov, before I start on the TBR pile.

I gathered the shortest books I could find on my shelves that I had not already read.
Then I quickly picked a few interesting reads and graphic novels from the library 20 minutes before closing time (I didn’t finish work until an hour before closing time anyway!)

The result:

  • Fellside – M R Carey
  • The Marvels – Brian Selznick
  • The Signalman – Charles Dickens
  • Killing the Dead – Marcus Sedgwick
  • The History Boys – Alan Bennett
  • DNA (School Edition) – Dennis Kelly
  • Just So Stories – Rudyard Kipling
  • The Grownup – Gillian Flynn
  • Dead Man Talking – Roddy Doyle
  • My Naughty Little Sister – Dorothy Edwards
  • My Girlfriend’s a Geek (Vol 1) – Pentabu
  • The Graveyard Book – Neil Gaiman
  • The Guest Cat – Takashi Hiraide
  • When the Emperor Was Divine – Julie Otsuka
  • Reasons to Stay Alive – Matt Haig
  • Goodbye Tsugumi – Banana Yoshimoto
  • Sally Heathcoate: Suffragette – Mary M Talbot, Kate Charlesworth and Bryan Talbot
  • Ghost World – Daniel Clowes
  • Me, Me, Me – Charlotte Crosby
  • The Goddess Chronicle – Natsuo Kirino

I did have Almost Transparent Blue by Ryu Murakami in the pile until I realised I’d already read it! It wasn’t a particularly memorable book though!

I’m off to finish Lolita and won’t be back until either I finish it, or it is the official start time for the Readathon.
