Empty Shelfie Wrap Up (May)

As usually happens with month-long readathons, I forgot about it until the last week of the readathon. No matter!

Empty Shelfie ⛺ï¸�🔥🚶â€�😱

The theme this month for Empty Shelfie was camping and wow, the challenges were actually quite challenging. There seemed to be a lot of challenges where I could think of books that would fit, but I had already read them and had no desire to reread them (or it wasn’t actually possible in Station Eleven‘s case).

Empty Shelfie ⛺️🔥🚶‍😱

This is a month-long readathon where the focus on reading books you already own, hence ’emptying your shelves’. The theme for the month of May is camping and there are a few challenges listed in the video. I have to say, the challenges this month were a lot harder to fulfil than normal, but I’m still looking forward to reading all these books!

Challenges

  • Read a book with a tent on the cover
  • Read a book with a haunted location/ghost
  • Read a book with a starry night on the cover
  • Read a book where the characters are lost on a trail

Empty Shelfie – March

This is a month long readathon with different challenges every month. March’s challenges are finally out so I can get around to my TBR! My TBR mostly consists of Fairyloot books I want to get around to, especially ones which have been talked about a lot recently in the book community. I don’t think I’m going to get to the month’s book, Freefall, but I’ve put it on my TBR anyway.

Challenges

  • Read a book that makes you laugh
  • Read a book to do with Irish origins
  • Read a book that contains fey/folklore
  • Read a book with leaves on the cover
  • Read Freefall by Joshua David Bellan

Challenges

  • A book which has been on your TBR for over a year
  • A book with the colour pink, red, white or purple
  • A book with a murder
  • A book that finishes a series you started a while ago
  • The book of the month

I’ve been looking for some readathons to take part in September, however a lot of readathons haven’t posted their announcement posts/videos yet so I can’t do TBRs for them yet. This readathon is called Empty Shelfie and the only rules is that the book has to be on your shelf. It lasts all the way through September so even I might be able to stick to my TBR of three books.


Challenges

  1. A book that has been on your TBR shelf for a while
  2. A book that is set in or written in the 1990s
  3. A book featuring a monarchy
