That’s right, folks, its that time of year again- the time when the sun decides it wants to murder our skin (unless you’re an Aussie, sorry guys), more books than I could read in my life are published, and ALL OF THE READATHONS COME OUT TO PLAY.
If you don’t know what a readathon is, it’s both supremely awesome and incredibly, devastatingly difficult. Basically, a bunch of people get together, usually on some kind of social media platform, and read as much as you can within a certain amount of time.
Now, my favorite two readathons happen to be overlapping this year. Oh joy. BUT I LOVE THEM SO MUCH HOW COULD I CHOOSE.
The first is the 24in48 readathon, which has a goal of reading 24 hours within a 48 hour time period.
Last time, I wasn’t able to make the goal (I think I got about 22 hours), but it was still super fun and I got a lot of reading in anyway.
The next readathon is the Summer Biannual Bibliothon, which is just as cool, a week long, and a gazillion times more complicated.
And, I’ve been asked to be a blogger host! This readathon is hosted by seven booktubers, so there are video challenge prompts for every round. But this time around, they wanted to include as many people as possible! Therefore, they’ve asked seven bookstagrammers and seven book bloggers to be hosts for the round, with a different challenge each day. You can find the bookstagrammers and bloggers in the description of this video. And since I want to share this experience with as many of you as possible, I thought I’d try to spread the word about the blogging challenges! They are as follows:
Sunday- Nana @ 4 Teen Liars – The Blogger Book Tag
Monday- Kassie @ Miss Sassy Kassie – Write a Book Review
Tuesday- Dominique @ Pirates and Pixie Dust – The Villain’s Synopsis
Wednesday- Amy @ Bursting With Books (me!) – Roast a Book You Rated 3+ Stars
Thursday- Ashley @ Inside My Minds – Character Connections
Friday- Libby @ Wolf Libby – 25 Facts About Me
Saturday- Dylan @ Reading and Other Random Stuff – Write a Letter to a Character
As the readathon runs from Sunday the 23rd to Saturday the 29th, the blogging prompts are also hosted on the days of the week from the 23rd to the 29th. I hope you’ll join us! I’ll try to do as many of these as I can, but I’m not sure I’ll get to all of them. I’ll definitely be here Wednesday, though!
Along with the blogging, Instagram, and video prompts, there are also reading challenges (as it is a readathon, after all)! You can see the announcement video here. I will be creating a TBR for this readathon, but I recently watched BooksandLala’s guide to readathons, and she recommended not creating your TBR until right before the readathon (which I thought was genius). Therefore, I’m going to wait to make my TBR, and I’ll announce that in another post.
Aaaaand I think that’s all I needed to talk about! Hopefully I explained things well enough. Let me know if you’re participating in either readathon! I’d love to see any prompts you do for the Biannual Bibliothon if you do decide to join. Happy reading! 🙂
Lots of Love, Amy ❤
