The Sunday Salon - Spring Break Bookaday

This Girl Is DifferentGearing up for Spring Break - only 18 more days! - and started compiling my Spring Break possible reads. Spring Break runs April 2 - April 11, that's nine days. It also encompasses Dewey's 24 hour Readathon!  I should be able to read at least 5 more books during that time for a total of 14 books which I will round to 15! So my goal is to read 15 books during Spring Break and my tentative list includes, in no particular order:

  1. The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell
  2. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
  3. Freedom by Jonathan Franzen
  4. Bumped by Megan McCafferty
  5. Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult
  6. Across The Universe by Beth Revis
  7. The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta
  8. Blink and Caution by Tim Wynne-Jones
  9. Twilight Robbery by Francis Hardinge
  10. Jane Austen: A Life by Claire Tomalin
  11. Junonia by Kevin Henke
  12. This Girl is Different by JJ Johnson
  13. Bruiser by Neal Shusterman
  14. Red Glove by Holly Black
  15. Wheels of Change by Sue Macy
  16. Death Cloud by Andrew Lane
  17. Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
  18. Bless This Mouse by Lois Lowry
  19. Trauma Queen by Barbara Dee
  20. Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon
  21. Fury of the Phoenix by Cindy Pon
  22. The Latte Rebellion by Sarah Jamila Stevenson
  23. Classic from my challenge list
  24. Graphic novel from my challenge list
  25. POC from my challenge list
Ok, that's 25 titles, sort of,  pretty much off the top of my head.  Some of those books are in my house right now so may not last until Spring Break!  I also need to check up on my school year 40 book reading challenge to see what I still need to read. 

When is your Spring Break and what will you be reading?  Will you participate in Dewey's 24 hour Readathon?  Two twitter hashtags to follow #bookaday #readathon


  1. My spring break isn't until Easter, so I have such a long time until then. Thanks for the reminder about the read-a-thon! I totally forgot about it. I need to get my current reads out of the way, so I can start thinking of potential reads.

    You have such a great-looking stack of books! I can't wait to read your thoughts on This Girl is Different. Happy reading!

  2. Sounds like a fun challenge! Hope you enjoy ROT & RUIN when you get to it!

    And, thanks for the reading list. I've only read about half of those, so now I have a shopping list for the rest!


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
