Dewey's Read-a-Thon buttonDewey’s Read-a-thon is going so fast! We’re already in Hour 8, for which Andi announced that we’re having the biggest Read-a-thon ever with over 800 participants. Wow! I gave myself chills down the spine writing that. Imagine us all around the world enjoying books together today!

I’ve been spending more time cheering than reading, but that’s it’s own kind of bookish fun, too. I did take a little time to solve the book cover jigsaw puzzles put together by Little Miss Reader and to make some Best of… selections for Lisa’s World of Books.

Here are my picks:

Cress by Marissa Meyer

The Rapunzel story retold as a far-future adventure with conflict between Earthens and Lunars.

Best Book of Your Reading Year
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston

Best Romance Book of Your Reading Year
Soulless by Gail Carriger (I loved that this managed to be a good a romance while parodying romance novels)

Best YA of Your Reading Year
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

Best New Adult of Your Reading Year
Cress by Marissa Meyer

Best Mystery Book of Your Reading Year
The Murders of Richard III by Elizabeth Peters

Best Non-Fiction Book of Your Reading Year
Your Food Is Fooling You: How Your Brain Is Hijacked by Sugar, Fat, and Salt by David A. Kessler

Best Fantasy of Your Reading Year
Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger

Are you enjoying your day of reading?

  1. Thanks so much for stopping to cheer me on! I see Elizabeth Peters is on your list – I adore her (under all her pen names), and The Murders of Richard III is one of my favorite of her novels.
