DEWEY'S 24HR READATHON TBR
Lately I've been in such a reading slump, I've barely been reading at all and I'm just not motivated to read. So I've made quite a last minute decision to participate in Dewey's 24 hour readathon which I'm hoping will jump-start my reading and get me excited about it again!
Dewey's 24 hour readathon is basically what it says on the tin and this round is taking place (mostly) on this coming Saturday 17th October. However, this readathon is slightly different from others as instead of just starting at midnight wherever you are there is a universal start time so everyone can start reading together!

As I'm in the UK the readathon will be starting for me at 13:00 on Saturday and continuing through until Sunday at that time. I definitely won't be staying awake for the full 24 hours because I think that would actually be impossible for me, but I'm planning to dedicate all the time I can to just reading. I'll be updating my progress on Twitter (@sarahs_chapter) so make sure to follow me on there to keep up!
As the readathon is only 24 hours I've just picked two books that I'm hoping to have a go at during that time and maybe I'll finish one.
The first book I'm going to be picking up is Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. I read Throne of Glass last month and really enjoyed it so I'm looking forward to continuing with the series. I'm also hoping that picking something YA and fast-paced will help get me out of my slump and will be quite an easy read.
The next book I want to start during the readathon is the classic that I've chosen to review for this month's 2015 Classics Challenge. I thought that this would be a suitably spooky ready for October and I know a lot of people really love this book so I'm excited to get into it.
So those are the books that I'll be reading this weekend for the readathon, don't forget to follow me on Twitter for updates and keep an eye out for my wrap up next week!
