Love for Books Readathon Sign Up

readathon, Uncategorized 0 Comments

So I love readathons and there’s one going on right after Valentines Day. This is perfect because it will be a nice way to unwind after the craziness of Valentines Day. I work in a floral department at a grocery store, so yes, it will definitely be crazy. I want to try to aim for at least one book a day, for seven books total minimum, as well as one short story a day. I haven’t decided which books and stories I’ll read yet, but I’ll announce them when I make the progress post. If you’re interested in signing up… Read more »

Bout of Books 4.0 Starting Line + Goals

bout of books, readathon 11 Comments

It’s already that time! Bout of Books starts tomorrow, and I’ve decided what to read finally. I’m going to be continuing series I’ve already started but hadn’t gotten around to reading the sequels. If I finish all 7 books I’ve chosen, I’ll be able to finish two series, get caught up on one, and get halfway caught up on another. I should also mention that this will throw my May TBR out of whack, since none of these are books I planned on. But I’m also not in the mood for the books I planned on either so here we… Read more »

 It’s already the fifth month of this year! Where has time gone? It’s just flying by at the speed of light. Anyways, this month is going to be an awesome month. So many great books are coming out, a couple of which I plan to read immediately, and others of which will probably wait a while. I don’t have money to buy all of them unfortunately. 🙁 But here is what I plan on reading this month! My last book of April is 172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad, and I’ve decided to read Grave Mercy next because… Read more »

All right everyone! You’re probably sleeping now, but if not, get started on your reading. At the time that this goes up, I will either be asleep in bed or reading Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris. Now remember, even if you’re not participating in the overall month long challenge, you can still participate in the readathon as long as the books are YA from HarperCollins! I will update this post only once tomorrow with my midday progress at noon. Then I will do a separate wrap up post and announce when the second Harper readathon will be.

I’d like to completely finish all of the books on my list, so I have nothing carrying over from the old year to the new. My initial list… Read more »
