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

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
