This is a bit late this month but between Christmas, work and a ReadAThon I am currently in I just haven’t had the chance to write anything but reviews for the books I have read. So let’s jump straight in!
Bout of Books is a week-long ReadAThon that is pretty chill. There are no reading challenges for this ReadAThon. The only challenge is to try and read more than you normally would in a normal week!
The Bout of books will run from midnight on the 8th till 11:59pm on the 14th!
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 and not necessary but add some extra fun.
This ReadAThon happens every month so here are all the future challenges in case you wanted to plan!

As far as I can tell the Blog challenges and photo challenges have not been posted yet!
So this ReadAThon is exactly as it sounds! You try and read for a total of 24hours in a 28hour ReadAThon.
This round goes from midnight on the 27th till 11:59pm 28th of Jan.
The only requirement of this ReadAThon is to try and read for the 24 hours. There are no other challenges.
Well that’s all the ones I can find! I am going to try and participate in #AYearAThon & Winter Biannual Bibliothon, but we will see! I will either be participating in #AYearAThon or Duodecathon this year. But I am waiting to see Duodecathons challenges for the year before I decide and Duodecathon hasn’t announced their dates and challenges yet! Hopefully it will be up by the 1st.
As always if you know of any others that are happening in Jan then please let me know so I can add them!
