This is my guide for the Read-A-Thons happening in July I will post the next one at the end of July for August!
At the moment I am only planning on doing the Duodecathon. If I am going to participate I will do a TBR before the ReadAThon.
So there isn’t a tonne of info about this ReadAThon except a little bit on the creators Goodreads page. But what I can gather is every month the creator releases 3 challenges and you can either pick one or do all 3! The main challenge though is that you have to only use book you already own! You can’t buy a book that fits the challenges you have to find a book you already own to complete 1 or more challenges!
This challenge goes all month!
HERE is their Twitter Page.
1. TV Adaptions
3. Based on a video game or has characters who play video games
This ReadAThon occurs every month and each month there is a different focus on what to read.
So this ReadAThon has 2 parts, first there is the theme. So the idea is to try and read books related to that theme and then there is the challenges, they are an extra challenge. I am not sure whether you have to try and find a challenge that fits into thats month theme or whether you just read two separate books for each.
HERE is a link to their Goodreads page
This ReadAThon happens every month so here is all the future challenges incase you wanted to plan!

So this challenges runs from the 17th to 30th of July. Use the Hashtag #HSreadathon for the ReadAThon.
So this ReadAThon is a seasonal thing, there is 4 different ReadAThons that they run as far as I can tell. This specific one has no reading requirements, you just read as much as you can in that time. There is a giveaway at the end of ReadAThon, you have to participate and post a Wrap-Up to enter. You can either post on a blog, twitter, facebook or Goodreads!
So as you can probably guess with this one, you attempt to read for 24 hours of the 48 hours the ReadAThon runs for. There is no specific reading challenges for this one.
You can find the Sign Up for this one HERE!
So this one is run on twitter and includes reading challenges, group book read, blog challenges, video challenges and photo challenges! You can participate in whatever you want, you do not have to do the video, blog, photo or group read! If participating in any of the video challenges you go in the draw to win a book. There is 8 books altogether that they are giving away! Checkout the link below for the Video Challenges to see which books can be one for each of the challenges.
You can find their youtube channel HERE!

They also have a book club called the Biblio Book Club that runs throughout the entire year! They choose a book every 3 months to read. The last book they read and did a live show about was Jay Kristoff’s Nevernight! They are currently reading The Seafarer’s Kiss by Julia Ember, so be sure to follow their Twitter HERE for everything that’s going on!
The link for the ReadAThon’s Youtube is HERE!
They do have a post that explains the Booktube-A-Thon which you can find HERE!
This ReadAThon is from the 24th to 30th of July! They don’t have anymore info up about it yet as it isn’t till the end of July but I will do a seperate update about it when I post my TBR! Last years BookTubeAThon was the first ReadAThon I had ever participated in and I want to do it again this year for that reason!
This ReadAThon goes from the 1st of July to the 30th! This ReadAThon only happens once a year during Summer (well Winter for myself).
Make sure you check out their Twitter HERE!
A Classic Fairytale
A book which disney has dramatized
A book that is set in the summer
A book you read as a child
A book with green or blue on the cover
A book to only read outside (well for us in Aus and everywhere else that is in winter in July, that challenge is going to be interesting)
This ReadAThon also is every month. This one has 12 options for challenges that you can pick from and the idea of this is that you participate every month and by the end of the year you will have done them all. As I have already missed Jan, Feb, March and April I will not get all the challenges done, but I hope to participate every month from now on!
