24 Hr Read-a-Thon (Spring 2010) Book Pool

by Ann-Katrina

This week has been a crazy one, which is why the 24 hour read-a-thon almost passed me by. *sigh* But, I discovered my mistake just in time to sign up and get a book pool together.

Book Pool 1

Title Author Genre
Siberia Ann Halam Children’s Fantasy/Dystopian Future
New Skies Patrick Nielsen Hayden Children’s Sci-Fi/Short Stories
Sister Light, Sister Dark Jane Yolen Children’s Fantasy
New Magics Patrick Nielsen Hayden Children’s Fantasy/Short Stories
Puppet Master Joanne Owen Children’s Dark Fantasy
The Fallen (Book 1) Thomas E. Sniegoski Young Adult Supernatural

I went on a minor book binge yesterday (the above was the result, except Puppet Master) and I figured it would be fitting to include them as potential read-a-thon reads.

Then there are the books which I have started but have not yet finished for one reason or another; I believe it’s about time I did so.

Book Pool 2

Title Author Genre
Fallen Lauren Kate Young Adult Supernatural
Morpheus Road: The Light D. J. MacHale Young Adult Supernatural
White Cat (Curse Workers Book 1) Holly Black Young Adult Supernatural
Ash Malinda Lo Young Adult Fantasy
Bird in Hand Christina Baker Kline Adult Drama/Literary Fiction

There you have it. This time around, I decided to keep the book pool relatively small so I don’t become befuddled by all the choices. Now, I’m going to read through the previous 24 hr read-a-thon update posts to see if I can garner some tips.

And tonight I plan to turn in early so I can wake up bright and early and warm up. (*squee* I’m starting to get all excited!)
