Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon Updates

I'm so pumped for the readathon to start already! The starting time for me is 28th of April at 15:00 so it's still three more hours to go. I'm gonna prepare my snacks and be ready to read precisely at 15:00!

The Opening Meme is here!

1. What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
I'm reading from southern Finland!

2. Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Probably Obsidio because the series has been so amazing! But on the other hand I'm really looking forward to reading some manga as well.

3. Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I'm waiting for my fiancé to make something with cauliflower later :)

4. Tell us a little something about yourself!
My name is Book Bunny and I have two bunnies and a small dog.

5. If you participated in the last readathon, what's one thing you'll do different today? 
I have been participating in so many readathons I can't even count the anymore. Also I have perfected the art of readathoning so I don't think I'll do anything differently :) Goals are the best!


I quite like the idea that the challenges are doable during the whole time the readathon runs so I think I'll start with those and after that start the reading. Let the challenges commense!

How I heard about Dewey's -challenge

I haven't actually read that many short stories so I'll answer the question about Dewey's and how I heard about it.
I have been blogging since 2013-ish and I think that around that time I also stumbled upon someone's entry declaring that they are going to participate in a 24 hour readathon. At that time I was new in blogosphere so I had no idea what that was about but I quickly found out. I was absolutely amazed that events like that were happening and so happy that I was able to participate because they were held online and were international and anyone could join. I joined my first ever readathon and that was it. Now I participate to every single Dewey's readathon and make sure my calendar is emply on those days (it's a two day event for me). I wouldn't miss these for the world!


Updates

I have finished Gemina and Adulthood is a Myth and started Happy Happy Clover vol 1 and Sex Criminals vol 1. Also I ate cauliflower-broccoli thingy my fiancé made (it was really delicious) and my friend came over to read with me. So far so good but now I'm taking a break and playing some Overwatch!

Done Overwatching and I feel a headache coming so I think I'll head to bed and read a little and then go to sleep.

Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon TBR and Goals

Okay, so here's my TBR- pile for the readathon. If you haven't heard of Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon be sure to check it out here.

Books I attempt to read
- The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking
- Pokemon Adventures vol 3
- Pokemon Adventures vol 4
- Adulthood is a Myth by Sarah Andersen
- Gemina  (The Illuminae Files #2) by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
- Obsidio (The Illuminae Files #3) by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
- Sex Criminals vol 1. by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky

I have already started Gemina so I'll be finishing it and I want to start Obsidio after that but not necessarily finish it. I want to read it slowly and not devour it on one sitting though I'm aware that it can happen too..

Also we went to the local library AFTER I took the photo above so there are a couple of manga's I'm adding to the list. I don't want to take that photo again 'cuz I'm lazy and it took some arranging!
