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!

Readathon News: Spring Into Horror and Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon

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 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.

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!

There’s the month long BookTokAThon that I am participating in. You can find my TBR for that here.

This week there is a Vault-A-Thon going on from the 15th-21st. It looks like it will mainly be on Twitter. There wasn’t much information when I first discovered this. Now I see there’s a challenge list and there has been for awhile. I’ve got this.

March 8th-14th: AYearAThon with the theme of Standalones.

Entire month of March: BookTokAThon.

AYearAThon TBR:

BookTokAThon TBR:

Challenges:

  1. Read a book that BookTok has recommended you: Lore
  2. Read a book that you haven’t seen on BookTok: Complications of Pi (Reread)
  3. Read an Own Voices book: Wilder Girls
  4. Read a debut author’s debut novel: The Final Revival of Opal & Nev
  5. Read a book that has been on your TBR forever: Red, White, and Royal Blue

Note: I am aware that both TBR Piles are exactly the same. I was lucky to find books that fit both readathons fully. I believe in the motto: Work smarter not harder. The way I see it, I’ll either get my challenges for the month done this week or I will get a good chunk in. Either way is a win! Tell me if you’re participating in either of these. I’d love to see your progress!

This is all I managed to find so far. I haven’t decided if I want to check back in every month, take a break during the off times, or make my own. If you know of any that you think I might be interested in, please feel free to comment them! I’d love to know if any of you are participating in any of these as well! I’m excited!

2020 Reading Rush TBR!!!!

I’m not sure if any of you watch a lot of Booktube, but every year they do a ReadingRush. It used to be known as BookTubeAThon. The point behind it is to spend an entire week reading as much as you can. They have seven challenges to try to complete during the week. I’ve been participating for a few years now. I can’t remember what year I started. I love it.

Almost Finished:

Closing Survey:

How would you assess your reading overall?
I did fantastic! I got caught up on my reading. I finished three books! Almost finished four books! I’m so happy with that!
Did you have a stategy, and if so, did you stick to it?
I switched off every two hours. I listened to audiobook for two hours and I read for two hours. I did stray now and then when necessary. I also napped a bit. I was able to make it all work.
What was your favorite snack?
Nachos!
Wanna volunteer for our next event? Stay tuned for the recap post!
I would love to. Please reach out! I wish this readathon was once a month! Okay, maybe four times a year.

Thank you for Reading!

Dewey’s Readathon Mid Event Survey

Note: This is being posted near the end of the event. I have been avoiding my computer for most of the Readathon.

Books Finished So Far:

Mid-Event Survey:

  1. What are you reading right now?
    The Sweeney Sisters and Righteous Assassin
  2. How many books have you read so far?
    3
  3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
    I’m looking forward to starting The Sweeney Sisters the most.
  4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
    Had some minor interuptions, but they are things I’m used to. My dog learned how to pause audiobooks he doesn’t like. I also fell asleep for a few hours. With the audiobooks, I just hit play again making eye contact with my dog. For the sleep. I woke up and went back to reading.
  5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
    How successful I’ve been!
