I last-minute decided to join the #7in7readathon – #NOREGRETS

7 in 7 Readathon 2017

Hey guys! Yesterday I posted my #TheReadingQuest TBR, and I mentioned that I had decided to join the 7 in 7 read-a-thon last minute. I had heard of it before but wasn’t planning on joining until it was 2 am on the 11th and all of a sudden I was creating a TBR. Whoops?

If you don’t know, the 7 in 7 readathon is basically all about reading seven things in seven days. They don’t even have to be books! It can be books, short stories, anthologies, magazines, graphic novels, comics, anything, but the goal is to read seven of them. It’s hosted by Ashley @ Said the Story, and she’s enlisted 6 other BookTubers to host some Twitter sprints throughout the week as well! It’s extremely relaxed and it’s just meant to be fun and a great way to get those reading juices flowing!

Alright, let’s get into my TBR! I’ve picked seven (mostly short) books that I aim to read (obviously), but I have a few alternates that I may end up reading instead, depending on my mood! (Covers will be linked to their respective Goodreads pages!) Continue reading

My #TheReadingQuest TBR!

The Reading Quest Sign Up Post

Hey guys! A couple of days ago, I posted a list of all of the August read-a-thons I’ll be participating in, and I mentioned that I would be participating in The Reading Quest and also posting a TBR before it started! Aaaaand here I am! To start, here’s a little run-down on what this whole thing’s all about:

The Reading Quest, hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight, is a month-long readathon based on a video game format, in which you attempt to complete prompts for your quest to gain experience and HP!

In this challenge, you’ll be embarking on a journey to conquer your TBR pile through a series of stages. You’ll read new stories, gain experience, and level up a character of your choosing.

The quest will take place between Sunday 13th August to Sunday 10th September, 2017. All adventurers are encouraged to register their interest in the sign up form in Aentee’s original post, which will be open until Sunday 13th August.

CW of Read, Think, Ponder is the amazing artist behind all of the character illustration provided for the readathon! Make sure to give her lots of love; you can find her on Instagram, Twitter, and of course, her fabulous blog!

Down the TBR Hole: This is working!!! Eek!

Down the TBR Hole

Yikes, I haven’t done a Down the TBR Hole in, what… Almost a month? Yikes! I definitely need to get back into the swing of things. Let’s dive right in, shall we?

It’s awesome how well this meme is working for me! I’ve gotten rid of so many books, and the Spring Cleaning Book Tag that I did a week ago definitely helped as well. 🙂

Okay, to be fair, I keep adding a gazillion-trillion books. But I’ve stayed under 700 and the number is still going down more than up! If you want to check out my last Down the TBR Hole, you can do so here. 🙂

Down the TBR Hole is a (very) bookish meme, originally created by Lia @ Lost In A Story. She has since combed through all of her TBR (very impressive) and diminished it by quite a bit, but the meme is still open to others! How to participate:

  • Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf
  • Order by Ascending Date Added
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or let it go?

Well hello there! There are SO many readathons happening in August (and some have already happened, whoops), that I thought I’d make a post on all of the ones I’m participating in! It’s going to be a hectic month with hardly any breaks. I’m crazy, you’re crazy, it’s gonna be great.

My 2017 Summer Biannual Bibliothon TBR!

Summer 2017 Biannual Bibliothon

Hey y’all! 😉 Not-so-long ago, I created an announcement post saying that I’ll be participating in the Biannual Bibliothon as well as the 24 in 48 readathon! (I’m also a blogger host, so make sure to click the link above to check out all of the blogging prompts for the week!) I decided I wanted to wait a few more days to make my TBR for the read-a-thon, so here it is!

The challenges are as follows: Continue reading

24 in 48 AND Summer Bibib Readathons???

July 2017 24in48 and Biannual Bibliothon Readathons

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. Continue reading

Down the TBR Hole: I’m a regular old Alice!

Down the TBR Hole (2)

As in Wonderland? Get it? Eh? Eh? Eh??? No? Okay.*

I. LOVE. THIS. MEME. So I don’t want to miss any weeks of it… Heaven knows it’ll take long enough already! Anyhoo, as I mentioned in last week’s Down the TBR Hole, I was at camp for a few days, then had one day off, and then was off on vacation! I just got back on Saturday evening. My surgery, however, is Wednesday, and as I have no idea when I’ll be feeling up to posting afterwards, I might disappear for a bit. But I will definitely try to get as many of these scheduled as I can! Anyhoo, I’m starting to sound like a broken record. Let’s get into the thing, shall we! 😉
