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.

Read-O-Rama is basically readathons throughout the year with different challenges each time. I see it mentioned frequently but now I’m actually on time to take part in this readathon. This readathon is from 11th June – 17th June.



1. Read a book with RAMA in the title and/or author’s name
2. Read a book with water on the cover
3. Read a short book (150 pages or less)
4. Read a graphic novel
5. Read a book you’ve been anticipating
6. Read an own voice book

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.


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.

Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For The Second Half of 2017

A weekly blog meme from The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Top Ten Most Anticipated Books for the Second Half of 2017 (and that is a mouthful). I always find these ones quite hard to do because I never have a list of books that are going to be released, I normally find recs on Booktube or Goodreads. Frequently I miss out books and I’m sure when I read other people’s Top Ten Tuesday posts, I’ll be struck by how many I missed!
