Here is my ReadAThon guide for February!! At the moment I am only planning on participating in Duodecathon & AYearAThon. If I decided to participate in others I will post specific TBRs for those!
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!

So this one isn’t really a ReadAThon, it’s kinda more of a reading challenge! But I’m still including it.
Fantastic February goes for the whole month of February and the only challenge is to read as many Fantasy or Paranormal books as you can! You don’t have to read only Fantasy and Paranormal, but read as many as you can! To join all you have to do is write a blog post showing your possible reads! If you wish to chat on social media about Fantastic February then use to hashtag #FantasticFeb to join with others!
This ReadAThon is run by Books & Munches who you can find on Twitter HERE or blog HERE! There will be a new challenge each month! So check out her blog or keep an eye out for my upcoming ReadAThon Guides for future info!
So there isn’t a tonne of info about this ReadAThon except for 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 books 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.
You can also find their Goodreads Group HERE! This group also has ReadAlongs going on all the time.

The ReadAThin is a month long ReadAThon concentrating on thinning out those TBRs! The main rule is that you can only use books that you already owned or had ordered prior to the reading challenges going up. The challenges went up today Sunday 28th-Monday 29th (depending on time zone). So any book you ordered yesterday still counts! This ReadAThon goes all month and the goal is to complete 6 challenges, but obviously, you can read other books throughout the month, that just depends on how much you read in a month. The goal is 6 challenges but you can complete as many as you want! Don’t stress yourself out. You can also use 1 book for 2 challenges, but no more than that. So you could complete the ReadAThon by reading 3 books if you could find ones that fit.
This month they also have a group book, which I don’t understand the point of personally. If you don’t already own the book then it doesn’ count & you can’t already own the book as it doesn’t release till the 6th of Feb (unless you have an ARC)!!!
The group book:
– 2017/2018 release
– Buddy Read (This can include the group book)
– Least Favourite Emoji
– Read a New To You Author
– Finish a series
– A book with a spring themed cover
– Read a book with red, pink or white
– It’s Black History month, Read a book with a Person of Colour
– Read a book featuring a diverse relationship *
– Read a smutty book
– Read a book with NO romance
*For clarification, they are only counting LGBTQIAP+ relationships, not relationships that feature any other diversity, such as mental illness, race, etc.
Well, that is all. If you know of any other ReadAThons happening in February then please let me know in a comment or tag me on Twitter @duskangelreads.
