Readathon News: August Readathons

Disclaimer: These Readathons are not owned or run by me. I find them by searching the month and year on Google. My main source has been Little Book Owl.

There are four month long readathons going on for the month of August.

  1. ARC August. From what I gather, this is the sixth annual event. It looks like you just read as many Advanced reader Copies as you can during the month. It doesn’t seem to matter if they are from this year or haven’t been released yet. As long as they are ARC copies.
  2. DraconAthon: They have a video on Youtube that explains everything about the readathon. It looks like it includes the prompts to get through with the readathon. You can view that by clicking here.
  3. High Summer Readathon: This is sponsored by Seasons of Reading. They have a sign up post on their blog for everybody that wants to participate to sign up. It doesn’t look like there are any prompts. Just read to your heart’s content. This is one of my favorite readathons because of how low key they are.
  4. Trope-ical Readathon: This is Round 5 of the readathon. You can find all of the information by clicking here. If you’re worried about being thrown into the middle of it because it’s the 5th round, don’t. This will be my first round as well. It does look really fun!

The first week-long readathon in August will be the Buzzword Readathon. I haven’t really been active in this readathon. It’s not really my thing, but I won’t push my bias on other people. Some people may enjoy this particular readathon and want to know about it. This month’s buzz word is time of day.

I understand that August doesn’t really start until Sunday. I post these Monday and by the time I post, they will have all been going for a full day. Posting early gives us time to prepare properly. Especially those of us who will be travelling in the beginning. Besides, there haven’t really been in readathons for the last half of July.

Off The Grid Readathon: This takes place from July 9th to July 11th. The rules seem pretty simple. Go off the grid and focus on nothing but reading. No social media. No television. Nothing. We could all use this now and then.

Both of these look really amazing. I’m definitely going to at least attempt to participate in both of them. I’ll have to do some more research on them as I just have discovered them. Has anybody else heard of these? What are your thoughts on it?

June 14th-June 20th:

Seasons of Reading is holding an entire month long readathon dedicated to Sci-Fi. It’s called the Sci-Fi Summer Readathon. It looks like there aren’t many rules. Looks like you don’t even have to have a blog to participate. They do have a hashtag you can use that’s listed in the blog describing the readathon. They also have a Slack channel that can be joined. Feel free to click on the links and check them out!

This week, #AYEARATHON is holding a week long readathon. The theme they are choosing for this month is rereads. You can find more information about the readathon on the link provided in the hashtag. I haven’t been as great of a participant as I could be during these, but I plan to do better from here on. I’ve been looking forward to this one all year long. I plan to reread the House of Night series.

This one is a little late, but Seasons of Reading is holding an entire month long readathon dedicated to Sci-Fi. It’s called the Sci-Fi Summer Readathon. It looks like there aren’t many rules. Looks like you don’t even have to have a blog to participate. They do have a hashtag you can use that’s listed in the blog describing the readathon. They also have a Slack channel that can be joined. Feel free to click on the links and check them out!

From June 6th to June 12th we have something I just found but I am super excited about hosted by queer_lit. It’s called the Queer Lit Readathon. It looks absolutely amazing. The original link I found wound up being all about last years readathons. Luckily for me, I was able to find out some information with a simple Google search. It looks like it’s very active on Instagram, but they also have a Youtube. They probably encourage the readathon on other platforms as well. Feel free to click the link I have provided for more info.

Normally, I’d post my TBR posts right here. I’ve been really struggling to read lately. So I think until I can stop forcing myself to read and actually want to read that I’ll just read on a whim. I am looking forward to picking out TBR piles for events again though. Let me know if you plan to participate in either of these readathons! Maybe we can do it together!

Readathon News: AYearAThon

I’ll discuss the readathons going on during the week and ow I feel about them. I will also list my TBR for the readathon or each readathon. If none are scheduled or I’m not hosting my own, this blog will be skipped for the week.

May 10th to the 16th

This is the only readathon I know of that I am interested in this month. I really do need to increase my sources on readathons so I can find out how many are going on. It’s this months #AYearAThon. The theme is Books by One Author. I have chosen to read the first half of the House of Night series since their theme next month is re-reads and I can read the rest of the series next month. Anybody else do these every month? I love them!

April 19th to the 25th

For the entire month of April, there is a Spring Into Horror readathon. I used to actively participate in these, but randomly stopped when I was feeling overwhelmed. I’m happy to be back.

This is actually a light week. The only readathon going on is Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon taking place on April 24th from 8 AM EST until 8 AM EST on April 25th. It’s one of my favorite readathons to attend every year. I signed up to help co-host and do social media discussions. I don’t think they needed me this year. At least I can say I try. Half of the readathon may consist of me working. I put in for the day off though. So we shall see what happens. Luckily, I’m able to read during work.

We also have AYearaThon taking place during the duration of this week. They do a readathon for a week every month with a different theme each time. This month’s theme is adaptations. I’m very excited for this theme. I will be reading Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, four graphic novels for Locke & Key by Joe Hill, and (if time permits) The Passage by Justin Cronin.

I’ll discuss the readathons going on during the week and ow I feel about them. I will also list my TBR for the readathon or each readathon. If none are scheduled or I’m not hosting my own, this blog will be skipped for the week.

April 5th to the 11th

So for the entire month of April, there is a Spring Into Horror readathon. I used to actively participate in these, but randomly stopped when I was feeling overwhelmed. I’m happy to be back.

We also have a Off The Gridathon taking place the 9th to the 11th. I’m very excited about that. We shut ourselves off social media and do nothing but read. I’ll obviously be working Friday and Saturday, but I will still be able to read and stay off the grid outside of work.

I’ve decided not to do a TBR pile for readathons unless they have challenges. I make a list every single month of books I want to read and I’ll just go off that. I actually need to start posting those on here. Might hold me more accountable to do them!
