Hocus Pocus Readathon TBR! Team Trick or Treaters!

I’m participating in the Hocus Pocus Readathon for the second year in a row. Last year, I was Team Sanderson Sisters. This year, I’m Team Trick or Treaters. Next year, I may go Undead. We shall see! Either way, I want to share my TBR for this year! Especially since I can start tomorrow!

Info for readathon can be found here and here.

Team Trick or Treaters

  1. Halloween night is full of spooky and eerie vibes! Read a book with an atmospheric setting! (15 points) Hocus Pocus
  2. Max started this whole mess when he lit the black flame candle! Read the first book in a series! (15 points) Vampire Academy
  3. Trick-or-treating is all about the candy! Read a short and sweet book, less than 300 pages! (15 points) Marked
  4. Halloween is such a fun and colorful holiday! Read a book with Halloween colors on the cover (orange, black, purple, or green)! (15 points) Betrayed
  5. Max, Allison, and Dani have to stay up all night to defeat the witches! Read a book that is so scary that it would keep you up at night! (horror, mystery, thriller, etc.) (15 points) Scary Stories
  6. Team trick-or-treaters need to come together to survive the night! Read a book with multiple POVs! (15 points) Nature’s Strike
  7. Watch the movie! Watch Hocus Pocus or Hocus Pocus 2! (25 points)

Team Trick-or-Treaters

Strength: There are only so many hours of Halloween night! You can have a head start, and begin reading your Hocus Pocus Readathon TBR 4 days early (starting September 27th!)

Weakness: Team Trick-or-Treaters are young, so they must deal with parents and rules! You have to abide by the rules and read each book on your TBR in the order of the prompts. You can’t move on to the following prompt until you finish the last!

If you’re participating, I’d love to see your TBR! And what team you’re in!!!

Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon Results

My favorite readathon was this weekend! Sadly, I missed out on about half of it. I’m still in training at work and couldn’t ask for it off. Next time I’ll be able to request off! Either way, I did a pretty great job! I read over 400 pages in about 9 hours. I also wound up finishing three books. They were books I had made great progress on before the readathon, but I’m still very happy.

Did anybody else attend? I’d love to see your results!

April TBR Jar Readathon Reading Plans

I host a readathon in my group (The Introverted Readathoner) every month. Normally, I let a tbr pick my reading. This weekend, I’m a bit behind on some deadlines. So I’m just treating it like a normal readathon instead. I’m a bit intense with 24 hour and weekend readathons. Here’s my game plan:

I know it seems intense, but I constantly alter the schedule through the weekend to work for me. It works for me honestly. Especially when my goal is 20 pages an hour.

And now for my TBR for the weekend. I don’t plan to finish all of them, but I do plan on making progress in them at least!

Readathon Updates!

So this weekend was great! I participated in a Shadow Lounge Readathon! I read a total of 1,039 pages in the span of 32 hours! I call it a major sucess. I also finished four books!

This week I will be participating in the AYearathon readathon. I love week-long ones. Gives you more time to get your goals in. This month’s theam is “Go Green”. It’s basically meant to read ebooks and audiobooks. I’m very excited to do this! I’ve even made plans that will help me with the process.

I’ll have recaps for both readathons when I have more time (for the one already passed) and when the event is over! Anybody else done or doing these???

April Readathons

It’s the last day of March. How is this even possible? What happened to February? January?

Weekly Reading Plans: March 28th

One of the biggest goals I have this year is to finally tackle the huge list of books I’ve accumulated over the past year. Especially the books were given to me in exchange for review. I haven’t intended to go so long without reading them. I am just really bad with time management. Hopefully, this year will help me get better with that.

Note: I realize I plan to read a lot of books every week. I’m a mood reader and I account for that by adding extras so if I’m stuck I can move on to another book. I do not think that I will get all of these during the week. There are some that will be prioritized over others for obvious reasons.

Readathons I’m participating in this week:

Readathon News: December 27th

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.

No new readathons this week!

Note: I saw a readathon that was dated for the 26th-31st. However, when I went to pull up the info, the post was dated for 2018. I guess I could have dug a little more to see if it was an annual readathon they do. It just felt really dated to me. That’s why I chose not to include it. Here’s the link in case you want to check it out and draw your own conclusions.

Ongoing Readathons:

Christmas Spirit Readathon: This readathon takes place from November 25th to January 6th. It looks really fun. The group hosting the readathon always host some of the best readathons in my opinions. Most of them are held for the entire month. Some are held for two weeks. I’d suggest following the blog to keep up with their upcoming readathons.

December Monthly Readathons:

25 Days of Manga: There’s not really much to go on, but it seems pretty straightforward. Spend the first 25 days of the month reading as much manga as you possibly can.
Merry Bookmas Readathon: The event takes place the entire month. It looks like they have their challenges posted for it on the Twitter page. It looks pretty laid back.

Know of any readathons going on this week that I don’t have listed? Feel free to share! Tell me the readathon you’re most excited for!
