October and Halloween Readathon TBR

october tbr blog header

For the third month in a row, I have a ridiculous amount of books that I want to read and very little idea of which ones I will actually get to. This month I really want to focus on reading a lot of the older review copies I have since I feel really bad about how long it’s taken me to get to some of them. But I also have a few blog tours I’m participating in as well as some library books that I’d like to read before I have to return them. So once again, this is more of a look into what I might read this month rather than a set list. I’m also hoping to kind of participate in Lauren’s Halloween Readathon. I had a lot of fun doing it last year, so although I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to do this time around, I want to at least get in one or two books for it. More on that below!

ARC August Recap

ARC August recap blog header

We’re officially in September now and as you may or may not remember, during August I was participating in Read.Sleep.Repeat’s ARC August challenge. These lovely bloggers host this challenge each August and April to motivate bloggers to get through some of the (many) ARCs that we have waiting to be read and reviewed. I love participating in this because it really is great motivation. Now that August is over, I wanted to post a recap/wrap-up of the ARCs I read throughout the month.

Bout of Books 20 Sign-Up, TBR, & Daily Progress

random post blog header (2)

Yesterday, I posted my wrap-up of the Make Me Read It Readathon and talked about how I hadn’t really read a whole lot during the readathon. So, naturally, today I’m here to sign up for another readathon: Bout of Books! I think the timing for this readathon is perfect; it’ll give me a nice push to get through some of the books I’ve been wanting to read this month, yet I’ll still have some time to wrap up what I don’t finish before August ends. I’m really pumped for this readathon and I’m looking forward to getting lots of reading done!

Make Me Read It Readathon Wrap-Up

random post blog header (1)

In case you missed it, last week was the Make Me Read It Readathon. This is a readathon that was hosted by Val @ The Innocent Smiley and Ely @ Tea and Titles. Before the readathon started, I posted a poll and my readers were able to vote and choose what book(s) I was going to read during the readathon. I had two polls, one for finished copies I have and another for old eARCs I still need to read. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir and The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge won those polls. Anyway, today I wanted to do a quick wrap-up and talk a bit about how the readathon went for me.

ARC August Sign-Up

ARC August 2017 sign-up

Hi, everyone! Today I come to you with a pretty last-minute decision to participate in ARC August. I originally wasn’t planning on it because I still have a lot of library books that I want/need to read and I didn’t want to end up neglecting those in favor of ARCs, but I’ve changed my mind. 🙂 There are quite a few review copies I’ve acquired over the past several months and I really need to get through some of them. What better way to do that than with ARC August?

Choose What I Read: Make Me Read It Readathon

make me read it readathon

Hello, everyone! August is the month for readathons, apparently. I’ve been coming across a ton of them on people’s blogs, Twitter, etc. I think I’m only going to participate in one though: the Make Me Read It Readathon. I participated in this last year and had a lot of fun. I love the idea of letting all of you actually choose what I read instead of forcing myself to pick. 😉

Bout of Books 19 Wrap-Up

Sunday was the last day of this round of Bout of Books. I wasn’t sure how much I’d be able to participate since the majority of the week, I was studying for finals and trying to finish up other end-of-the-semester responsibilities. With that said, although this wasn’t my most successful readathon ever, I still managed to get a good amount of reading done.
