Reading Plans & Goals: March 13th

Last week was a very productive week for me. In more ways than one. I’m finally starting to get somewhere where a routine is concerned. I’m not where I want to be yet, but I am getting there. That’s important to me. Here’s to another great week!

Plan to Start:

  1. Divine Rivals
  2. You Wouldn’t Dare
  3. Ander And Santi Were Here
  4. The Middle Daughter
  5. Nature’s Strike
  6. Escape from the Asylum

This may be a stretch. It may not. Two of the titles aren’t in my schedule. I just really want to read them. I’ve been waiting forever! Hopefully I will have time to at least start them. This week is a readathon week so we shall see!

Books I Hope to Make Progress On:

  1. Where Darkness Blooms
  2. Dioramas
  3. The Witch and the Vampire
  4. Not That Kind of Ever After
  5. The Renaissance of Gwen Hathaway
  6. Hitler’s Aristocrats

Goals for the Week:

  1. Keep at daily goals and log-ins.
  2. Get and keep a job.
  3. Reach out to authors for Author Spotlight.
  4. Drink more water

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!!!

End of the Year TBR Pile

It is Christmas Eve. I can’t believe we are here! I feel like I was preparing for the summer just yesterday. I digress. It’s time to finally get into crunch time and read as much as I can between now and the end of the year. It’s going to be a very laid-back holiday here. No gifts. Just sitting around reading. I’m looking forward to it!

That being said! I want to share the books that I hope to finish before the end of the year! I’d also love to see yours as well!

Some of these I already started. Some are in ebook. Some are in audio. Some are paperbacks. I have my doubts that I will finish all nine before the end of the year, but I am excited to try! The reading is the part I’m looking most forward to!
