48 Hour Book Challenge!

The 48 Hour Book Challenge is here again!

Last year I finished without roughly 14.5 hours and 4 books. I'm hoping to do a little better than that this year. I want to finish at least the 6 YA and middle grade books I currently have checked out from the library.

I'm also going to try to post some mini-reviews of books that have been sitting on my desk for months. They're all (well, mostly) great books, I just haven't gotten around to writing the reviews. If I haven't written full reviews of them by now, it's not going to happen, but they still deserve some attention! I have a bad habit of checking books out from the library, reading them, copying down quotes I think I might want to use in my review, and then returning them to the library. Given the volume of books I read, those quotes don't help me that much if I wait too long to sit down and write the review. The books that I'm going to "mini-review" left an impression on me and I feel that I can recommend them without hesitation, I just can't remember enough little details to write full reviews. This seems the perfect weekend to do some recommending rather than full on reviewing.

However you choose to participate in this year's 48HBC, have a great weekend everyone, and get reading!

Happy reading! Looking forward to your mini reviews :)

I hope your girlfriend is doing better.

I have tendency to check out too many books at once and return before reviewed as well. Good luck today!

When I started this challenge, it was to get rid of my stack of library books. Good luck in getting them off your to-read list!
