Dewey's Read-a-Thon TBR
Over the last few days, I've been feeling quite overwhelmed by my reading goals for April. At the beginning of the month I had 9 (!!!) books on my to-read list. I've done pretty well, but I still have 3 left on the list, with only 6 days left to go. Dewey's Read-a-Thon is perfectly timed to help me out with accomplishing my goal. This read-a-thon is only 24 hours, and is timed to start all at the exact same time as everyone in the world. The start times are listed here, if you are interested in participating. Here are the books I'm planning to read:
I mentioned this in my Spring TBR post here, and it is also 1 pick for April from the Impression Parade book club that my friend Marianna and I created. The book is set in Moscow in 1986, which also happens to be when the horrific events in Chernobyl occurred. It follows several people (not sure if it switches perspectives) before and after the event. I'm only about 20 pages into the book, but this is the first book I will try to finish during the Read-a-Thon.

As you all are aware by now, I recently read (and loved) Child 44. The Secret Speech continues the adventures of Leo Demidov. I honestly have no idea where the story goes following the first book in the series, and I'm totally ok with that. I can't wait to get back into the series and learn what happens next with Leo and Raisa.
If, miraculously, I somehow finish both of those books in 24 hours then I will pick up this quick novel by H.G. Wells. Earlier this month I listed to the audiobook of The War of the Worlds and I loved it so much that I added nearly everything by Wells to my to-read list. The Invisible Man is about a guy who turns corrupt after a science experiment gone horribly wrong. He has somehow turned himself invisible and as he desperately tries to fix the situation, he becomes a monster. It sounds extremely interesting and I hope I can get to this!
That is all for this TBR. Very ambitious for a 24 hour read-a-thon, but with some tea and a little headstart tonight, I'm hoping to make some serious progress! If you'd like to join in, sign up here!
