If you are reading this I have officially begun the Dewey's 24 hour read-a-thon! I am really excited to be a part of it this year. If you haven't heard of it and would like to learn more about it go HERE.
My 10 yr old niece Makenna is also going to be doing it with me. She is bound and determined to make it the whole 24 hours. Throughout the day I will be updating everyone on our progress as we attempt to complete it! :)
We have all of our snacks ready to go and here are the books that we plan on reading -
Missy's books -
The Boys Next Door by Jennifer Echols
The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart
Playing Hurt by Holly Schindler
Wake by Lisa McMann
Six Moon Summer by SM Reine
Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting
So those are all of the books I am going to attempt to read. Not necessarily in that order!
Makenna's books -
Thea Stilton and the Mountain of Fire by Thea Stilton
Thea Stilton and the Dragon's Code
American Chillers #24 Haunting in New Hampshire by Jonathan Rand

So 5a came and I couldn't make it anymore :( I was SO tired! Makenna didn't even make is long as I did. I am hoping next time that I can make it a whole 24 hours. I am pretty impressed with myself for what I did accomplish though. Hope everyone had a blast!
