Calling Aussie Book Bloggers!

logo_Aussie-Aussie-Aussie-Tee-Thumb-1000x1000

I am currently organising an Australian themed ReadAThon for October!

I’m looking for fellow Aussies to help me cohost the ReadAThon!
I have posted this a couple places but realised that I didn’t even post it on my blog to see if any of you would like to help!

You do not have to be Aussie to participate but I would like all Aussies as the cohosts.

The whole thing will be based on Australian Stereotypes. The ReadAThon will be 8 days (12th – 19th of October) and will have 8 optional reading challenges to choose from.
There is also an Aussie Themed Book Tag to go along with it for the book bloggers & book tubers! The tag is also based on Stereotypes and is called the ‘Shrimp on the Barbie Book Tag’.

aussie-map-stereotypes

Just in case anyone was iffy about joining because they don’t know what being a cohost means, here are some of the things you will need to do:
– Participate in the ReadAThon (You don’t have to complete all 8 challenges, just do the best you can)
– Post an announcement for the ReadAThon to let others know it is happening & all the info (all the info will be provided)
– Post your TBR for the ReadAThon
– Post the Shrimp on the Barbie Book Tag on the 1st day of the ReadAThon
– Help with Twitter sprints
*If you don’t use Twitter this isn’t necessary however there will be a dedicated Twitter account for the ReadAThon so even if you don’t have an account you can still do the sprints if you want. But I know Twitter can be confusing as hell, especially if you have never used it, so this is optional.*

Well, I think that’s all you need to know! Let me know in the comments or message me @duskangelreads on Twitter or Instagram if you want to join.

TBR Jar ReadAThon Round #2 Announcement

Copy of Header Image (2)

 

 

This Round will be going from midnight on the 8th till 11:59pm on the 14th of September (7 days long)

Blog titles (18)

This ReadAThon is pretty simple. First, pick a goal. I will be aiming for 7 books, but you can choose as many or as little books as you wish.
Next, grab a jar, or cup, or hat, I don’t care. Something you can put names into.
For the next step, you can do this one a few ways.
Option 1 is to put all the books on your TBR (physical, eBook, audiobook, whatever you wish) into a hat.
Option 2, you can pick some of the books you are most looking forward to and put them in a hat. (Try and put at least double the amount that is your goal)
Option 3, (this is what I will be doing), get a 2nd jar, in 1 jar put all the physical & eBooks books on your TBR into it and in the 2nd jar put all the audiobooks on your TBR.
Lastly, pick a name out of the jar and read that book, then pick another name and read that book and continue until you either hit your goal or run out of time in the ReadAThon.

Blog titles (19)

You can choose to pull the number of names for your goal out of the jar prior to the ReadAThon of pull them out as you go.

Use the hashtag #TBRJarRAT so I can see what you’re up to (also if it is on Twitter then you can tag the @TBRJarRAT page too.

So, some of you may have a few books from the same series still on your TBR. Join the club. So if this is the case, you can either choose to only put the 1st book (or the book you are up to) in the TBR jar OR you can put it in as the full series. So if you pick up that name, then you have to try and read all the books from that series that you have on your shelf.
This ReadAThon is very customisable, so do whatever fits you.

Blog titles (2)

Yes, we have Instagram Challenges this time around! They are completely optional but are there if you want to join in!

The Instagram Challenges will be posted on the TBRJarRAT Instagram within the next24 hours of this post going live.

Bout of Books #23 TBR

Copy of Header Image (6)

So I am finally participating in Bout of Books. This is a ReadAThon I haven’t done before but have wanted to, however, I generally don’t like ReadAThons without challenges as I find myself getting slack because I don’t ‘need’ to finish that certain book for a reason. But I have decided to try as there are soo many books I want to get to this month including some ARCs/review copies. I will also have some audiobooks on the list that are part of my Magical ReadAThon NEWTs Edition TBR.

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 20th and runs through Sunday, August 26th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 23 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor
I have an eARC of and I have been waiting for this book for nearly a year! So I am picking it up straight away!

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada
I have already started this book but because of all the ReadAThons I haven’t had a chance to finish it! So that will be my first goal for the ReadAThon

The Blood within the Stone by T.R. Thompson
This is a review copy I have had for a while now and I really need to get to it. I did use it in the try a chapter challenge for Biannual Bibliothon but decided to pick up one of the other books. However, I did enjoy the first chapter I read of this one and was really intrigued.

These are all books for the Magical ReadAThon. So that is why I am reading them. Sabriel, as of right now I have started but I don’t know if I will finish it beforehand or not.

ReadAThon Calendar Announcement

Copy of Header Image (5)

So you guys know every month I post a monthly ReadAThon Guide on my blog. Well, I have a new addition to that and that is a Calendar! The Calendar shows all the ReadAThons that are coming up that I can find. I will update it frequently to add any new ReadAThons or updated info.

Here is a preview and some info.

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 2.47.26 am

I have colour coded the ReadAThons based on Length, the same as I do in my Monthly Guides. You can see the colour code on the left of the screen. Also, if you click on any of those options on the left you can pick and choose what length of ReadAThons you see show up on the Calendar. Wanna know what month long ones are coming up? Well remove the other options and you will see just the ones you want!

Here is an example of just the 1 – 6 Day Long ReadAThons showing.

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 2.58.57 am

If you click on any of the ReadAThons on the Calendar it will bring up information about that ReadAThon. I will include all important information & links that are currently posted. Here is an example:

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 2.50.58 am

The last thing you need to know is that you can turn on NOTIFICATIONS!! So when I update or add something you will get an email notification.

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 2.53.53 am

You can choose to get immediate or daily updates, you can also choose whether you just want to get a notification when I add a new event or when I update anything on the Calendar.

Screen Shot 2018-08-16 at 2.57.06 am

Also if you don’t want to get email notifications you could choose to Bookmark the Calendar.

Well, I think the only thing left to give you guys is the link! Click HERE!

If you guys have any suggestions let me know! Also if you know or are holding any ReadAThons that are missing from the Calendar let me know!

I’m doing a 24 Hour ReadAThon & TBR

Copy of Header Image (4)

So this is simply a ReadAThon I am doing for myself to get through a couple books. But I thought I would share it so that if anyone else wanted to join me they could! So if you are joining let me know in the comment and if you post about it on social media (or want to follow my posts) then use the hashtag #DAR24H so I don’t miss it!

This ReadAThon will go from 6pm on Monday to 5:59pm on Tuesday (Australian Eastern Standard Time). Just for reference that is 4am EST & 9am BST

Blog titles (6)

My first plan is to finish 2 books I have already started.

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada

This book I started before BookTubeAThon but had to put it down so I could start my BookTubeAThon reads and then after BookTubeAThon I jumped straight into Magical ReadAThon, so I haven’t had a chance to get back to it! I was really enjoying it before I had to put it down.

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

This is one of the books from the Magical ReadAThon #NEWTsReadAThon2018 so this was one I recently picked up. I’m also reading this for the A Darker Shade of ReadALongs #ADSOR which is hosted by CommonSpence on YouTube. You can find the Twitter page HERE. For the next three months, I will be reading 1 book from the Shades of Magic Trilogy each month.

Now onto the book that I want to start and finish during the ReadAThon.

9781444941951

I have an ARC of this one, however, it is already out and I haven’t read it yet as between BookTubeAThon & Magical ReadAThon I haven’t had a chance. So it is on this TBR!

Let me know if you are joining me and what’s on your TBR? If not then let me know if you have read any of these and what you thought of them. Please, no spoilers.
