This is my guide for the Read-A-Thons happening in September! I couldn’t find a tonne for September but if you know of any others happening please let me know and I will update the post!
At the moment I am only planning on doing the Duodecathon. If I am going to participate I will do a TBR before that ReadAThon before it starts.
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 are the challenges, they are an extra challenge. I am not sure whether you have to try and find a challenge that fits into that 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 are all the future challenges in case you wanted to plan!
4-10 September: Standalones
Challenge: One Word Titles
2-8 October: LGBTQIA+ Books
Challenge: Read Poetry & Short Stories
6-12 November: New to you authors
Challenge: Read A Duology
4-10 December: 2017 Debuts
Read the last book (or books) you bought
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.
You can find info and join the Goodreads group HERE.
For August there are 2 ReadAThon dates and I’m assuming that is because there wasn’t a ReadAThon date for January. I will only be participating in one and that will be the 11-17 one.
CHALLENGES TO PICK FROM:
Read 1,200 pages
Start OR finish a series
A 2017 debut author
A short story
A Graphic Novel
A Non-Fiction book
A Book that has been on your TBR for 2+ years
A book with multiple authors
A book you picked up because of the cover
A book that has to do with travelling
Someone else’s favourite book
The first book on your shelf you have read
This is a fairly chill ReadAThon! Firstly the only rule is that you have to read only fantasy books! There is reading challenges, however, you just choose however many you want to do, you can choose to do 1 or all 5! There is also photo challenges which you can post to Instagram, Twitter or Tumblr and possibly win a giveaway for doing so (each photo is one entry)!
Dates: 4th – 10th of September
– Read a blue fantasy book. Any amount of blue will do!
– Read a swashbuckling fantasy novel! Think The Three Musketeers or The Princess Bride.
– Read a fantasy book that reminds you of Fall. Maybe this book gives you cosy Fall feelings, maybe the cover has Fall colours, or it could take place in the Fall…
– Read a classic fantasy book! Specifically, anything written before the 1980s. Think LOTR, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Once and Future King, The Earthsea Cycle, The Neverending Story, The Sword of Shannara, etc.
– Read a fantasy book with wings on the cover.
*copied from the ReadAThon announcement post*
So as far as I can tell with this one the only rule is to read books that you wanted to read last year but never got to! I don’t think there is reading challenges!
Dates: 8th – 11th September

*Firstly, yes I have slightly changed the graphic between when I originally made this post and this update*
This is a month long ReadAThon hosted by Books & Munches here on WordPress. So the only rule to this ReadAThon is to read sequels!
All you have to do to participate is make a blog post with the books that you will possibly read during Septemeber, so basically a list of the Sequels you own that you have already read the first book to. Make sure you link back to Books & Munches announcement post!
There isn’t a Twitter or any other social media for this ReadAThon but when talking about it on social medai use the hashtag #SequelSeptember !!
