The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of ReReadathon! Tomorrow is July 1, which means the start of ReReadathon + Shelf Sweeper 2014. If you don’t know what that is, check out my intro post here. The short version is that Rachel and I are using the month of July to read old favorites as well as tackle the books on our shelves that we own but have never read, and we want you to join us.
So if I were you, this would be my official entry, because this is where I’m making my game plan. I also plan to post an update at the end of each week, which would get me another entry each time (as long as I remember to link up in the linky here or on Rachel’s blog.)
I plan to start #RRSS14 off with a bang. As you read this, I am most likely sitting by a hotel pool in Fort Lauderdale. I’m on vacation through July 7th and plan to use (almost) every second to read. It’s beyond thrilling to know that I can devour books without worrying about reviews.
For the ReReadathon portion of RRSS14, I want to revisit:
- The Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner (every year, yo)
- The Archived by Victoria Schwab
- The Beka Cooper series by Tamora Pierce
- Not a Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis
- I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga
- Ten by Gretchen McNeil
For the Shelf Sweeper portion of RRSS14, I’d like to read:
- The Unbound by Victoria Schwab
- The Oathbreaker’s Shadow by Amy McCulloch
- Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay
- This One Summer by Jillian and Mariko Tamaki
- Zero Gravity by Dave Roman
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
- Maid of Secrets by Jennifer McGowan
- The Caged Graves by Dianne K. Salerni
Knowing how I roll, I won’t get to all of them. Not only will I not be able to read that many books (18) in a month, but I’ll pick up other books from my shelf as the mood hits me. However, I think it’s a nice assortment. Some (MWT) are tradition and much beloved. Some (Tamora Pierce) are remnants from last year. Some (McGowan, McGinnis) are prep for upcoming sequels. Some, like Schwab, hit both lists as I prep for one with a reread of the other. And some are just perfect beach reads.
Honestly, though, I cannot wait to dive in.
