24 hours in 4 days Marathon - Tati Feltrin

I decided to join the new marathon that Tati Feltrin created because it was the first time that I saw a possible marathon, when I say possible I mean something that would allow me to sleep, because to me nothing is more special than my eight hours of sleep. She'll read from 12 a.m. to 6 p.m., but as I will work friday and saturday, I decided to start at 6 p.m. and finish at 12 p.m.

This are the books that I plan to read:

Tell no one by Harlen Coben: I don't know what is it about, but one of my students asked me to read, and I love to read my students book as I feel like I'm some how influencing them to read too. I plan to finish this one!
For Dr. David Beck, the loss was shattering. And every day for the past eight years, he has relived the horror of what happened. The gleaming lake. The pale moonlight. The piercing screams. The night his wife was taken. The last night he saw her alive.Everyone tells him it's time to move on, to forget the past once and for all. But for David Beck, there can be no closure. A message has appeared on his computer, a phrase only he and his dead wife know. Suddenly Beck is taunted with the impossible- that somewhere, somehow, Elizabeth is alive. 



Mansfield Park by Jane Austen: This book is on my 12 books to read in 2017. Probably, I won't finish this weekend, but it is going to be a nice opportunity to start.
Taken from the poverty of her parents' home, Fanny Price is brought up with her rich cousins at Mansfield Park, acutely aware of her humble rank and with only her cousin Edmund as an ally. When Fanny's uncle is absent in Antigua, Mary Crawford and her brother Henry arrive in the neighbourhood, bringing with them London glamour and a reckless taste for flirtation. As her female cousins vie for Henry's attention, and even Edmund falls for Mary's dazzling charms, only Fanny remains doubtful about the Crawfords' influence and finds herself more isolated than ever. A subtle examination of social position and moral integrity, Mansfield Park is one of Jane Austen's most profound works.


Swann's way by Marcel Proust: I want to finish chapter one, because I started and I want to continue reading. On this first chapter the main character is talking about his childhood memories and his relationship with his mother and he has just introduced Swann, the character that this book is going to focus on. I'm really excited about this reading, because I have been learning a lot with his writing methods and it has been something new to me as I'm not so used to read memories like that. 
Swann's Way tells two related stories, the first of which revolves around Marcel, a younger version of the narrator, and his experiences in, and memories of, the French town Combray. Inspired by the "gusts of memory" that rise up within him as he dips a Madeleine into hot tea, the narrator discusses his fear of going to bed at night. He is a creature of habit and dislikes waking up in the middle of the night not knowing where he is. He claims that people are defined by the objects that surround them and must piece together their identities bit by bit each time they wake up. The young Marcel is so nervous about sleeping alone that he looks forward to his mother's goodnight kisses, but also dreads them as a sign of an impending sleepless night. One night, when Charles Swann, a friend of his grandparents, is visiting, his mother cannot come kiss him goodnight. He stays up until Swann leaves and looks so sad and pitiful that even his disciplinarian father encourages "Mamma" to spend the night in Marcel's room

A lot of people tend to read comic books during these marathons, I was thinking about reading something related to Wonder Woman, as I saw the movie and I really liked it. So, problably, I'll check my fiancé's library to see what he has there and maybe I'm gonna add a comic book, too. I'll try to keep track of it on my instagram @okubarostudies, but I'll also try to recap it here at the end of each day.
See you guys soon,
Okubaro
