And how is it? I love Tamora Pierce books. I’m really glad I saved this for now, because I’m starting to get sleepy and I think only this could be keeping my interest.

Food eaten: Had some pop to try to wake me up. Worked for about 10 minutes.

Interruptions: My nap wasn’t very successful: I take about an hour to fall asleep at least, so a 20 minute nap wasn’t realistic, but I think resting my eyes helped! Again, temporarily.

And how is it? I’m just 10 pages from the end! I do like it. It’s definitely an interesting story. We’ll see how the very final scene plays out!

Food eaten: Nothing, I think.

Interruptions: Just making tea and changing reading locations (bedroom to living room and back again).

Anything else? I cheered for most of Hour 17, and now I think I’m going to take a quick 20 minute nap, since this is usually my bedtime and I’m fading. (I’ll even set an alarm! Don’t worry, I’ll still make it to hour 24!)

And how is it? I’m liking it so far! I’m about halfway through it, and it’s definitely odd. I think the ending will really determine how much I like it as a whole, but I’m really interested to see how it wraps up.

Pages read this hour: Hour 15: 35 pages, Hour 16: 45 pages. But I think the page count is a little weird, because I have to flip through about three pages at my preferred font size before it counts a page read. Makes up for the huge font of Demonglass, though!

Pages read in total: 885

Food eaten: More tea, because my eyelids are starting to droop.

Interruptions: Just making tea and changing reading locations (bedroom to living room and back again).

Anything else? I’m going to cheer for a little while, hopefully that will wake me up. If not, I might just take a nap after all!

Currently reading: Just inbetween books!

And how is it? So I finished Demonglass and immediately needed to look up spoilers to see whether I was going to continue with the series or rage endlessly. You can guess what the factor was. (Spoiler: I will be continuing with the series and not lighting the book on fire. I’m kidding, I would never. Also it’s a library book.)

Food eaten: More chips and grapes.

Interruptions: Not a lot other than actually reaching a point 10 pages from the end where I could not read any further because if the THING happened I was going to be SO MAD.

Anything else? I think I’ll pick up Twixt next!

And how is it? I am LOVING it. Well, more specifically, I’m loving the lesbian vampire secondary character and her BFF relationship with the main character. How often does that happen? I mean, the ~~sassy gay guy~~ stereotype friend happens, but a straight female protagonist who is super close friends with a lesbian? And they both swoon sympathetically over each other’s love interests and gossip together? IT’S ADORABLE. Especially because I was expecting this to be one of my hetero reads for the day, and it’s warming my queer heart to a surprising extent. As long as she doesn’t end up dead (for good), points to you, Rachel Hawkins.

Pages read this hour: Hour 11: 85 pages, Hour 12: 95 pages (this book also has big font and big margins, which is a plus for page count)

Food eaten: So many snacks. Including grapes and a float and chocolate-covered potato chips. I love the #snackathon,

Interruptions: Not much!

Anything else? I think I might review Demonglass for the Lesbrary–or at least the lesbian elements of it.

Currently reading:  Nothing, technically! I just finished White Is For Witching before the hour ended!

And how is it? I liked it, but I think it was a little unfair to read another ~haunted house story so soon after House of Leaves. I liked most the of individual elements, but they just didn’t add up to a big pay off for me.

Food eaten: Nothing much, just a chocolate-covered almond, but I’ve been gnawing at my nails, so I better go get myself a snack.

Interruptions: I cheered for another half hour at hour 10!

Anything else? I’ve already finished the snack I was most looking forward to, but now I get to start the book I’ve been anticipating! Demonglass! Should be a fun, quick read.

And how is it? I like it! I’m still not sure I really get it yet, but I like it. I was starting to worry “This book does have queer content, right?” and now I’ve gotten confirmation that yes, yes it does. So that always adds to the enjoyment. I really like Ore so far.

Food eaten: Peanut stew with rice and toast, and the last of the toffee.

Interruptions: I got sucked into reading about authors who stalk reviewers.

Anything else? Pance (the cat) is still irritated that I’m paying more attention to the book than him. He kept trying to fall asleep with his head on the page and would glare when I had to turn it. He’s super cute, though, so I don’t mind.

And how is it? It’s weird and I’m not sure I really understand the format (is it multiple perspectives? is it from the perspective of Elliot and the house, or is there another one as well?), but I like it so far!

Pages read this hour: Hour 5: 20 pages, hour 6: 50 pages

Food eaten: Some tea, avocado on toast, some grapes, and some chocolate-covered toffee!

Interruptions: My roommate woke up, so I was talking to them, and didn’t read while making food, so that accounts for hour 5.

Anything else? My other roommate’s cat is also trying very hard to be distracting, including laying on my book and looking adorable.

Anything else? Off to finish off this book and make some tea and toast!
