Dewey's 24 hour Read-a-thon TBR

 Better late than never, right? Let's make it official.=)

 Hey guys!
 This morning I've found out that my road trip plans won't succeed, so I decided to finally participate in awesome Dewey's 24 hour Read-a-thon, that's happening 2 times a year (April and October). I wanted to take part in this read-a-thon sooo many times, but real life always interfered. This time everything changed and YAY! I'm in.
 Last minute decisions are the best ones, that's true.

You can find all the info about this amazing event here
 and without further ado, here's my TBR pile (yes, pile is the word):

(from top to bottom)
= Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach;
= Dear John by Nicholas Sparks;
= Jigs & Reels by Joanne Harris;
= Dolphin Diaries: Into the Blue and Touching the Waves by Ben M. Baglio;
= Doppler by Erlend Loe;
= Letters from Camp by Kate Klise;
= Empress of the World by Sara Ryan (with intro by David Levithan);
= Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen;
= Nomads of the North by James Oliver Curwood;
= Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little by E.B. White;
= Phoenix Rising by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris;
= The Wind in Willows by Kenneth Grahame;
= Griffin & Sabine. An Extraordinary Correspondence by Nick Bantock;
= Recless by Cornelia Funke;
= The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia compiled by His Lowness Hunson Abadeer, Lord of Evil. Translated from the Scrolls of OOO by Martin Olson (I LOVE THE ADVENTURE TIME!!!);
=The Resurrectionist. The Lost Work of Dr. Spenser Black by E.B. Hudspeth;
= Tokyo on Foot by Florent Chavouet;
= Complete Moonins by Tove Jansson.

 Jup! That's it. Of course, I won't promise to read them all, but I'll try my best to finish at least a half of the pile. And don't worry, most of them are childrens books with pretty big font or just short books, so **fingers-crossed** everything will be nice and smooth.
 Sorry for not posting the links, but it's already a Read-a-thon Time! and I want to curl up on my couch and READ!!!=D

 And the best part is that my sister will join me. Hooray!!! I already know this will be AWESOME

 Oh, and what read-a-thon it will be without food. Definitely not my read-a-thon!=)

 So, I'll be posting my updates every 3 hours. I've started with 1 hour delay, so...oops.
 See you soon! DFTBA!

 P.S. Hope you've decided to read-a-thon, too.=)

 Hello, hello!
I have an annoumcement 4 ya!=)
I'll be participating in CLARE-A-THON, week long read-a-thon of Cassandra Clare's books, created by lovely Beth over @bethjune327 and Jamie over @jamie_leigh18

Here's Jamie's video, where she explains everything. Also, for more info, check the Goodreads group right here.

Let's have fun 2geza!=)

  I'll be reading the City Of Lost Souls (#5 in TMI series), which was released in Russian last month (yay!). Have read first 4 last January and loved them. So, I waited long enough to continue and now it's time, because the City of Heavenly Fire, 6th and final book in this series, will be released on May 27, 2014 and oh my, I'm excited!!!=)
  My edition is in Russian, hardback and has 672 pages. So, hope I'll finish it in couple sittings... **fingers crossed**

 If (good luck!) I finish COLS before the end of Clare-a-Thon, I may start The Infernal Devices trilogy. I own first 2 - Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince, and the 3rd and final one - Clockwork Princess, will be released in Russian in April and I may or may not (we'll see) buy it soon.=)

 So, if you want to join me and a bunch of awesome people, all the link are above.

 Have an amazing day, awesome book and READ!!!!!!!!!
