Readathon Wrap Ups

Now I was very short-sighted and signed up to do three readathons in the same week. I am terrible with dates and didn’t realise they all overlapped until I signed up for them. I have decided to do one wrap up for all three, partly because I really can’t be bothered to do three separate wrap ups when I could be reading and partly because there is some overlap. I read ten books last week, so not everything on my TBR but since my TBR was ridiculous, I’m okay with the books I did manage to read. Most of the links to the books link to my review of that book on Goodreads.

The three readathons I did last week were Read-O-Rama ReadathonLibrary-a-thon and Because Dragons Readathon.

Alphabethon

I should stop with the readathons but I’m not going to. This readathon is 19th June – 25th June and the blog post explaining it is here and the Twitter is here. This is reading the alphabet and this time the letter is ‘b’. This means any books that start with the letter ‘b’ or the author’s name starts with ‘b’. I was going to try and get my TBR for this readathon to overlap a little with Because Dragons Readathon because they overlap but it turns out the one book which could qualify I had already read.

Summer Bingo!

Someone really needs to take the reading challenges away from me, but they’re so fun! I found this summer bingo on A Kernel of Nonsense and it is hosted by Pretty Deadly Blog and it looks like it’ll be a lot of fun! It’s pretty open-ended and so I’m going to try and get the books to match up with the Seasonal Reading Challenge. I don’t want to stress myself out about trying to do all the squares on the bingo so I’m not going to be a TBR here but I will post a wrap up post at the end of August. If it goes well, I’m definitely going to look at doing it for Autumn.


There are some recs over Pretty Deadly Blog and I have a rough TBR for this bingo challenge as well!

Library-a-thon

This is a readathon which is going on at the same time as the Read-o-Rama readathon and overlaps with the Because Dragons RAT so it runs from 11th June to 18th June. Is it a good idea to do this readathon as well? Probably not, but I have a lot of library books that have to go back by the 17th June so I might as well read them for a readathon.

Challenges 

1) Borrow and read a popular or backlist book you meant to read but never got around too.
2) Borrow and read a book by a popular author you’ve been curious to try or read more of.
3) Borrow and read a book you haven’t heard of before seeing it in the library.
4) Borrow and read a book recommended by the librarian.
5) Borrow and read a book you just feel like reading.

Because Dragons Readathon

This is BecauseDragonsRAT Round 2! I did Round 1 (my TBR here and my wrap up here) and I really enjoyed it so I’m definitely going to take part in Round 2. It runs from 13th June – 19th June (be prepared for me getting the dates confused). The Tumblr post is here.
