Alphabethon Round 8

Alphabethon

I’m already doing two readathons during the month of April, both of them long ones, but I love doing the Alphabethon and when I saw the next round was during April, I knew I would have to take part in it. Round 8 is all about the letter ‘H’ which means books that have the title or author’s name start with ‘h’.

This runs from the 8th to the 14th April and the twitter is here.

Challenges

  • Since April showers bring May flowers- read a book that has rain or flowers on the cover.
  • Read a book with double H’s. Ex. Title and Author’s first name.
  • Read a Huge book (400+ pages)
  • Read a Hardback book
  • Read a Historical Fiction book or a book with a Historical moment in it.
  • Hook, line, and sinker – read a book that reeled you in from page one. ( When choosing your TBR, go ahead and read those first pages)
  • Read a book that has a character that has a name that begins with H.

Alphabethon Round 6 Wrap Up

Round 6 of Alphabethon is over! This round was F so I had to read books where the title or the author’s name started with F. This ran from the 30th April to the 6th May and my TBR is here.

I didn’t actually do that great on this readathon, mostly because I got caught up reading a new series and I didn’t realise that a book I read didn’t qualify for this readathon until after the week had finished. I read one and a half books for this readathon so here’s hoping I do better for the next readathon.

Readathons Wrap Up

I have four readathons going at the same time and my TBR varied so wildly that I didn’t actually get that many of the challenges done for each readathon. Rather than worry about it, I decided to combine all four wrap up posts into one so I don’t have to write over and over again that I didn’t get to the challenges but I read a lot. It also means you don’t have to read it.

We’ll see how well it turns out!
