48 HBC: Finish Line

I actually finished at 9:30 this morning, the end of my 48 hours, but I had church, and then a party, and then a nap . . . so here I am, finally writing the post!


Total reading/blogging time: 19 hours
Books started: 9
Books completed: 7
Total pages read: ~1857

List of Books Read:
Hattie Ever After by Kirby Larson
Garden Princess by Kristin Kladstrup
Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
Frogged by Vivian Vande Velde
The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken
A Lady of High Regard by Tracie Peterson
McKenna by Mary Casanova
Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko (audiobook, unfinished)
The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle by Christopher Healy (unfinished)

I will complete both of the unfinished ones; they're just what I was reading and listening to when my 48 hours ran out.

Here's a picture of the ones I finished:

I'm pretty pleased with my participation this year -- I wasn't able to read as many hours as last year, but I finished more books (last year I spent the bulk of the challenge reading The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, which is a good book, but massive)!  I enjoyed the limited amount of socializing that I have done, and plan to visit some more blogs one I get this post up and see what everyone else has been reading.  Thanks again to everyone who has read and commented here; it's always nice to feel like part of a community.


  1. Nice! Some great books in that stack. Walk Two Moons is one of my favorites.

  2. Great list of books you read...added some to my own to read list (cause it would not do if that list got too small right?) Congrats on your reading!

  3. Good choices! Walk Two Moons is fantastic, and I enjoyed Frogged.

  4. I've been wanting to read Hattie Ever After by my library doesn't have it yet :(. I loved Al Capone Does My Shirts and Walk Two Moons! I also loved The Way of Kings. At least that was a good book to fill up all of your time last year.

  5. Ooh, how was GARDEN PRINCESS? I've been wondering about that one!

    1. I found it kind of flat, actually. Here's the link to the full review:
