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. 😉

#DiverseAThon Wrap-Up

Yesterday was the last day of this round of #DiverseAThon and what a spectacular failure it was for me. My main goal was to get through The Bone Witch and then at least start another book (ideally finishing a second), but I really didn’t come near that goal. The two main reasons why I didn’t do so well were that 1.) This was my first full week back at school and work and therefore I didn’t have very much free time and 2.) the world has been in complete and utter chaos which made it very hard for me to focus on reading.

Bout of Books Wrap-Up

Before I get into this post… How do you like my new design? 😀 I got the urge yesterday to redo my blog’s design and I have to say, I’m really liking the new one. There are still a couple of things I’m not 100% happy with that I may end up changing, but overall, I really like how it turned out. (As a side note: there are a couple of posts coming up in the next few weeks that I already had scheduled and made graphics for and I’m too lazy to redo those, so… they won’t match the new design, but oh well, haha.)

The Bout of Books readathon that I’ve been participating in for the past week ended last night and that means that it’s time for me to post my wrap-up! This was my second time participating in this readathon and I had just as much fun this time around. I definitely recommend trying this readathon at least once (if readathons are your thing). 🙂

Bout of Books Sign-Up and TBR (and Daily Progress)

Bout of Books Sign-Up, TBR, and Daily Progress Post

I decided pretty last minute that I wanted to participate in this round of Bout of Books. I’ve participated in this readathon before and had a lot of fun, even though I don’t think I met all my goals. Regardless, I’ve been wanting to participate again and since I’m still on winter break, this seemed like a good time to join in. 🙂

For those of you who don’t know, here’s the official blurb explaining what Bout of Books is:

There’s still time to sign up if you’d like! I’m not sure if I’ll be participating in any challenges or anything, but I might. I’m just going to see how the week goes. My goal is to finish at least 2 books, preferably 3. I should have quite a bit of time to get some reading done this week, so hopefully I’m able to meet my goals!

TBR

Throughout the week I’ll be trying to read these books. Every Hidden Thing is a library book that’s due on the 7th and the other two are review copies I’ve gotten that I want/need to review this month.

  1. Every Hidden Thing by Kenneth Oppel
  2. Beneath the Guarding Stars by Everly Frost
  3. Nemesis by Brendan Reichs

Daily Progress

I’ll also be updating this post throughout the week to keep track of my reading progress.
