September & Bookopoly ReadAThon 📚 TBR

It’s already September which is crazy! I will of course be participating in Bookopoly ReadAThon in September which is a ReadAThon I host. Obviously because Bookopoly runs by receiving a challenge based on a dice roll I won’t really be able to set out a TBR but here are some books that I hope I can fit into Bookopoly challenges as well as a couple ARCs and a Group Read I will be reading.

Currently Reading

eARC I will be reading

Indigo Owl is a book I received from Wakefield Press as part of a Blog Tour and my review will be out on the 26th of September!
Firefrost is an eARC that I received through NetGalley which releases 21st of September so look out for my review sometime before then.

ReadALong

A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow

This one is the first ReadALong for The YA Book Nerds which is the Facebook Group I run! The ReadALong will take place from the 17th to 30th of September and we will be chatting over on Discord! If you wanted to join this ReadALong just head over to our Discord.

Books I hope to fit into challenges

Let’s Chat!

Who else is participating in Bookopoly ReadAThon?
What are you most looking forward to reading September?

Challenges/Readathons TBR

August 💫 Tome Topple, Dewey’s 24 Hour 2020 Reverse ReadAThon & Roll the Dice ReadAThon 📚 TBR!

Yes, I am taking on 3 ReadAThons minimum this month! May I join another? Maybe. Maybe not. We will see!!
So let’s jump into it

General August TBR & Dewey’s 24 Hour 2020 Summer Reverse ReadAThon TBR

So firstly, Dewey’s 24 Hour ReadAThon begins 7th of August at 8pm EST. So for me in Australia it begins at 10am on the 8th of August! Which is also the same day Tome Topple begins.
I have a general TBR which I will be focusing on during the days that I am not doing any ReadAThons (1st to 7th) and also during Dewey’s. Even though Dewey’s is also day 1 of Tome Topple I am not going to stress about the 500+ page requirement for Dewey’s.

Fable & Firefrost are both eARCs that I need to read & review before September. So they will be my first priorities. Then I will concentrate on the others if I have time.

Tome Topple TBR

Tome Topple goes from 8th to 21st of August and I have a bit of an ambitious TBR but I am aiming to try and get some of the books off my TBR that are on my 20 books to read in 2020 list.

These are the 5 books I will be aiming to read. Which as I said may be ambitious but I will try my hardest! I may end up picking up The Devil’s Thief as an audiobook and maybe one of the others. Will just see how I feel!

Roll the Dice ReadAThon

So I don’t have a TBR for this one as I will be discovering what I will be reading as it happens. For this one there are 2 methods that you could chose to take and I am using the method where you assign each of your shelves a number, roll the dice to chose a shelf, then assign each book on that shelf a number & roll again to discover what book to read. So obviously I don’t have a TBR for this one!

Let’s Chat

What’s on your TBR for August?
Are you participating in any ReadAThons?

HouseCupAThon, TBR Jar ReadAThon & June TBR

**I’m sorry that the book cover images in this post are not all nice and sized the same like I usually do. You may have noticed that WordPress is not working like it used to when it comes to resizing images. I can’t get them to resize to the size I want.. Hopefully this is fixed soon but for now we are just going to have to deal with it… If anyone has a suggestion please let me know!!! It’s driving me insane and I spent over an hour yesterday trying to figure it out.**

FIRSTLY! DetectAThon has been postponed so I will not be participating in it as I planned. Just incase you watch my YouTube TBR and saw me talking about it. Unfortunately, i filmed & edited that before the announcement went up and I simply don’t have time to re-edit it.

HouseCupAThon is a Harry Potter themed month long ReadAThon for the entirety of June. TBR Jar ReadAThon is a readathon where you put the names of books in a jar and pull them out. So there won’t be an actual TBR for that one but just wanted to mention that I will be putting the HouseCupAThon books into the jar and pulling them out. TBR Jar ReadAThon goes from the 5th till the 14th of June.

HouseCupAThon

Tom Riddle’s Journal: Read a book by an author that uses a pen name or their initials

Obviously Robert Galbraith is J.K. Rowling’s pen name! So The Cuckoo’s Calling fits this challenge easily. I also thought it would be a good idea to read this as this is a Harry Potter themed ReadAThon and she obviously wrote both! Also, I love Mysteries. So hopefully I’ll enjoy this one.

The Howler: Read a book that has a character who must face the consequences of their actions

I won’t mention why but I think both Voldermort & Snape have to face the consequences of their actions in Deathly Hallows. So it definitely fits the challenge! I will be reading this one on Audiobook.

The Burrow: Read a cozy book.

Harry Potter is my ideal for a cozy book as it’s a story I love and could reread happily everyday without getting bored. Order of the Phoenix was simply the next one I had to read in order. I’ll also be listening to this one on Audiobook.

Lockhart: Read a book with a love interest everyone loves

I’m not huge into romance so I usually don’t care for the love interests that everyone obsesses over. I chose Half-Blood Prince because of Harry’s love interest! Who doesn’t love her?! Again, reading on Audiobook.

De-Gnome the Garden: Read a book that you are thinking on unhauling

I was planning on unhauling The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender as I have just lost interest. I originally purchased this book as it was the Group Book of a ReadAThon last year but I never had the motivation to pick it up. Hopefully I will get to it this time and enjoy it.

Whomping Willow: Read a book with a tree on the cover.

There is actually a couple trees on Fawkes in the top scene, so perfect fit. This one has also been on my radar for a while. I have read Romanov by Nadine Brandes and really enjoyed it. So hopefully I’ll like this one just as much!

Following the Spiders: Read a hyped book

This book fits perfect because, lets be real, every book by these authors is hyped to all hell! I really enjoyed Aurora Rising so I can’t wait to jump into Aurora Burning!

Polyjuice Potion: Read a book in a non-traditional format or a format that you don’t read very often.

I am twisting this challenge a little bit. I’m instead reading a book that is not in ITS traditional format. Obviously The Hobbit is a novel however I will be reading the Illustrated Revised Edition! This one is a reread for me but I love this edition and my partner (who is not a reader) has agreed to read it with me. We will see if that happens but I hope so as I’m always trying to convince him to read!

Fawkes: Give a book a second chance

I did start Toil & Trouble a while ago during another ReadAThon but I chose to pick up the audiobook that time which was a mistake. I love audiobooks but as this is a short story collection and that chose a single narrator to do all the stories it got very confusing very quickly. Obviously it was the same voice for every story and the narrator used the same voices for different characters in each of the stories I read, so they all started blending together very quickly. I couldn’t’ follow it as I was just getting confused trying to remember what had happened in this story so far and not in the previous ones and such. It was just not ideal. I think for short story collections the publishers really need to chose at least two narrators and get them to alternate stories to make it easier on the readers… Anyways, that is why I’m giving this book a second chance and reading it physically this time.

Petrified: Read a book that you’re afraid to read

I am not exactly afraid to read Odd One Out, I am just worried that I will not like it as much as I did Dear Martin which was amazing! I have seen some pretty low reviews on Odd One Out which makes me a little worried but I’m going to give it a go and hopefully I will love it!

Required Reading: Read Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets or any Harry Potter book

Goblet of Fire is the next Harry Potter book I need to read in my reread, so I put it on the list!

What are you most looking forward to on your June TBR??
Mine would have to be Fawkes or Aurora Burning!

Fantasy JourneyAThon TBR

This is a bit late as it’s already Day 2 for me here in Australia but oh well! Here is my TBR for the Fantasy JourneyAThon! You can find all the info for the Fantasy JourneyAThon HERE!

Please note that I am a Shadow Walker for this Round and being a Shadow Walker allows you to jump from one path to another as long as it is not forward on the same path. I will be using this ability.

Haroyell: Read a first book in a series

The Backstagers: Vol 1 is the first book in The Backstagers Graphic Novel series. I’ve been meaning to read this one for ages so I thought now would be the perfect time!

Dupressa: Read a short book

Why not continue the series? For Dupressa I will be reading The Backstagers: Vol 2 as it is just over 100 pages, so definitely a short book.

Garon: Read a book from your favourite genre

My favourite genres are Fantasy & Mystery equally, so this time I will be reading a Mystery book called European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman which is the second book in The Extraordinary Adventures of the Athena Club series.

JUMPING FROM GARON TO MOUNT PAEDRIS USING SHADOW WALKER ABILITY

Mount Paedris: Read a book with a map

I’ve decided to throw 2 rereads into my TBR. I have been in a massive slump, so I don’t want to push myself too much! So I will be rereading Harry Potter via audiobook for Mount Paedris. All the newer editions of Harry Potter I have feature a map, so this fits perfectly.

Maroo: Read a book with a monster

This one just fit perfectly, so I will be rereading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on audio for the Maroo challenge!

Tryllin: Read a book featuring royalty

I haven’t actually chosen a book for this but I will likely find an audiobook or graphic novel to fulfil this challenge later in the month!

Nialas: Read a predicted 5 star read

This one is book 3 in The Extraordinary Adventures of the Athena Club series and I have loved book 1 and what I’ve read of book 2 so far, so I am expecting to rate book 3 with 5 stars as well! Fingers Crossed.

Are you participating in the Fantasy JourneyAThon?! What are you most keen for on your TBR? And what team are you om?

Challenges/Readathons TBR

SimsAThon/October TBR

This month I am participating in 2 ReadAThons! SimsAThon is a month long ReadAThon themed around the Sims game which takes place for the entirety of October & I’m also participating in MateAThon but I will have a dedicated TBR for that one coming soon.
So let’s jump into the SimsAThon TBR first!

Choose A Household: Read a book from later in a series

This is the 28th book in the Hercule Poirot series by Agatha Christie, so it’s definitely later in the series!

Build a House: Read something set in another world

This is a YA standalone fantasy set in the Kingdom of Achra!

Perfect the Layout: Read a book with an interesting format

I plan to reread the whole The Illuminae Files series via audiobook this month. I have read the whole series & also reread Illuminae & Gemina via audiobook but I want to reread Obsidio via audiobook. So I am rereading the whole series. Illuminae is also written as a dossier of documents, so it fits the challenge well!

Interior Design: Read a book with a pretty cover

I love this cover and I have been meaning to read it for a while! This one I will be listening to as an audiobook.

Live Mode

Fall in Love: Read a book with a romance element

I don’t usually deliberately choose romance books but this one sounds like an interesting Sci-Fi book but also has romance. So hopefully it isn’t too over the top!

Reach the top of your Career Track: Read a finale

This is the last book in the Fallen Isles Trilogy and I can’t wait to get to this one!

Take a bubble bath: Read a book over 400 pages

This is the last book in the Stalking Jack the Ripper series and I can’t wait for this one either! I’m a little nervous as I didn’t love an element in Escaping the Houdini but I’m hoping I will love this one as much as I love Stalking Jack the Ripper & Hunting Prince Dracula.

Get Married: Read a book with an established couple

This one features a couple that is established in one of the previous books and I already wanted to read it, so it fits perfectly!

Pay Bills: Read your most recent purchase

My most recent purchase was of the 3 Exclusive Collector’s Editions of the US Shades of Magic series. So out of those 3 I only have A Conjuring of Light left to read, so that is the one I will be reading for this challenge!

Astronaut: Read a book set in space

This is set on another planet, so close enough to space. This is Volume 4 of The Woods.

Athlete: Read a book featuring sports

This one is pretty self explanatory. A graphic novel featuring fencing.

Business: Read a book with a number in the title

The Woods: Vol 5! Another self explanatory one as the number 5 is in the title.

Criminal: Read a Thriller

This is a Thriller that was being hyped up around release and I have been curious about since! So I’m keen to get to the audiobook of this one.

Painter: Read a book with a colourful cover

This is another Graphic Novel that I have been keen to get to and it has a colourful cover, so it fits the challenge!

Secret Agent: Read a mystery book

For this challenge I will just be listening to the next book in the Hercule Poirot series by Agatha Christie. Whichever one that is!

Style Influencer: Read a hyped book

When everyone was hyping this book I said to myself that I would not read it as I was quite frankly just sick of hearing about it. Then when I was looking for books for my TBR I was scrolling down my saved audiobooks on Scribd and this one was there, so I decided to give it a go.

Tech Guru: Read a futuristic book

Wildcard is the sequel to Warcross which is a futuristic sci-fi gaming type book and I’m keen to get to it except that I really hope the romance that was present in Warcross does not come up in this one.

Writer: Read a book by a new-to-you author

This is another audiobook I want to listen to and I can’t wait to get to it.

Then there was also these challenges but I haven’t chosen any books for these just yet.

Other books on my TBR!

Hogwarts House Battles + September 💫 TBR

So, you may have seen my post last week with my TBR for September & Reading Rivalry. Well it is 3 days into September and I decided to leave the Reading Rivalry groups. This is mainly because the people running things were so damn pushy. I joined the group for the reading only but was pushed to answer questions and post daily instagram posts (or weekly reviews) and if you didn’t comment or post then you would get tagged in posts with reminders.. Which even after 3 days was just getting bloody irritating. I don’t mind doing a monthly insta challenge but I don’t like being pushed to post if I don’t feel like it and I prefer ones that have challenges anyone can do. This challenge was very US based from what I could tell. Day 2s challenge being ‘Labour Day’, which is COMPLETELY irrelevant to me. For one, it is not labour day here in Australia and 2 basically no one in Australia (myself included) gives a damn about Labour Day. It means nothing to us besides a day off work/school. So why would I make a post about it?
So anyways, I just had an issue with how things were run on that group and made the decision just to leave it as it wasn’t worth the irritation.

Now, onto the actual TBR! After posting my last TBR I decided to join the Hogwarts House Battles, so here is my TBR for that!

Alchemy – New Forms – Read a recommendation from a friend

I was recommended this one a while back and I was going to use it for a similar challenge for the NEWTs but didn’t get to it. So I’m putting it on this TBR instead! I have started this one and am about 50 pages in and I’m intrigued so far.

Apparition – Teleportation – Only Read this book in public

This challenge I will be skipping as I don’t read any books in public except for the odd few pages when waiting at the Drs.

Arithmancy – Numbers – Read a book with a number in the title

The Woods: Vol 3 has the number 3 in the title. It’s also the next volume I need to read and I’m keen to continue.

Astronomy – Reading under the stars – Only read this book at Night

I haven’t chosen a specific book for this one but I will likely just pick up a graphic novel or novella that I can finish in one sitting at night.

Care of Magical Creatures – The Beasts – Read a book with an animal on the cover

Appointment with Death has a snake on the cover, so it fits. It’s also the next book in the Hercule Poirot series that I need to read!

Charms – Something New & Unexpected – Read a “New-To-You” Book

Ford this one basically what I did was went onto Scribd, into the audiobook section and looked at the recommendation until I found a cover hat I hadn’t seen before. I then looked up the genre on Goodreads, mainly to make sure it wasn’t romance heavy & also checked it wasn’t a sequel. And this is what I found, which actually sounds right up my alley. It’s a Historical Fiction set during WWII which it the part of Historical Fiction I gravitate towards.

Defence Against the Dark Arts – Can’t Last – Read a book you previously put down

Furyborn I started to read physically just after it came out. I was trying to get out of a reading slump at the time and was told by a few people that it was pretty slow going, so I decided to put it down. A slow book didn’t sound like the best idea for a slump. So I’m going to give it another go but this time via audiobook.

Divination – The Future – Read a predicted 5 star read

The Devil’s Thief is the second book to The Last Magician which I really enjoyed! I just still haven’t gotten to The Devil’s Thief yet! I haven’t decided whether I will read this physically or on audiobook. I want to read it physically but it is huge and kinda intimidating. I also originally read book 1 on audiobook, so I’m indecisive on whether I should audiobook or physically read it!

Flying – Fly High – Read your most anticipated book

At the moment this is the book that I’m super keen to get into, so I’m considering it my most anticipated.

Herbology – Caring – Read a book that means a lot to you

I haven’t chosen a book for this one specifically as I don’t know if I’ll do the challenge. Of course I would reread Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone for this challenge but I only just finished another reread of the whole series this morning, so if I have time I might do it but it won’t be top priority.

History of Magic – Historical – Read a book from another generation

Hercule Poirot’s Christmas is well and truly from another generation considering it was published in 1938. This is also the next book after Appointment with Death in the series!

Muggle Studies – Blending In – Read a hyped book

The Shades of London series in general is super hyped and I’ve been meaning to read this one for ages! So I thought it was time to add this one to a TBR!

Potions – Mixing – Read a genre you wouldn’t usually pick up

I haven’t chosen a book for this one as I have felt a little slumpy lately, so at the moment I don’t think it’s the best idea to be picking up something I wouldn’t usually and risking making the slump worse. If later in the month I feel like it I might choose something but for now I’m not.

Study of Ancient Runes – Ancients – Read a classic novel

I don’t generally read classics as they usually aren’t genres I’m interested in or are very romance heavy, so I haven’t picked anything for this one.

Transfiguration – Change – Read the Last Book You Bought

As of right now the last book I bought was a Harry Potter Box Set which is strictly for display only, so I will not be reading that one. I will basically choose a book for this one if I buy something else between now & the end of the month.

The rest of my September TBR!

Okay, so I have put the covers for the two Year Book Editions of The Woods just to display that I want to finish all the issues that are currently out rather than putting all of the volume covers.
House of Salt and Sorrows I saw on Scribd yesterday on Audiobook! I’ve been seeing it around and the cover is gorgeous, so I want to pick it up!
Spin the Dawn is also on audiobook on scribd. I do own it physically but I feel like picking up the audiobook at the moment. But will see what happens throughout the month!
Kriss is a Graphic Novel eARC that I need to get to and I’m super keen to jump in!
We are Blood and Thunder is a review copy I got from Bloomsbury and I really need to get to it! Just haven’t had the chance yet. So I’m keen to get into it.

Well that is all of the books currently on my TBR!
What are you most looking forward to in September?!

NEWTs Edition – Magical ReadAThon TBR

My second TBR of the day! Don’t worry, there will be a 3rd too, just maybe not today

ReadAThon Announcement!

If you don’t know already Magical ReadAThon is a 2 part ReadAThon that occurs in April & August. The first part is your OWLs. In this round you read books to receive grades in Hogwarts Subjects. The NEWTs is similar but each subject has three grades you can receive.
A: Acceptable
E: Exceeds Expectations
O: Outstanding
The overall goal of the ReadAThon is to aim for a wizarding Career. There are specific subjects during the OWLs & NEWTs that you need to complete to get specific careers. I am aiming for Magizoologist!

So, for NEWTs I need to get an O in Care of Magical Creatures, E in Charms & E in Herbology. I have chosen books for more than just those subjects though. I am participating in the Beat the Bingo ReadAThon as well. So I just kinda made books fit into the NEWTs challenges!

Ancient Runes

A: Ehwaz (partnership) – Read recommended by a friend
E: Book written in past tense

Challenges/Readathons TBR

Beat the Bingo ReadAThon TBR!

So, I’ve been extremely inactive on my blog lately. Between Biannual Bibliothon, MedievalAThon & The Reading Rush I have been super busy & next month is probably going to be the same. I will be participating in NEWTs Edition of Magical ReadAThon (Month long), Beat the Bingo ReadAThon (Month long) & the Harry Potter Edition of Fantasy JourneyAThon (10th – 19th)!

Beat the Bingo ReadAThon is taking place over in the Facebook Group The YA Book Nerds which I run. You can join the group HERE!

I have chosen books for all the challenges except for the ‘Previous YA Book Nerds BOTM’ because as the organiser of the group I have read all the Group Books as I was the one that choose them & made the discussion questions. So I’ve just left this as a free choice for myself.

My TBR is a bit ambitious but I tried to choose a decent amount of Graphic Novels & Audiobooks! There are 14 books, 7 Audiobooks & 3 Graphic Novels! So fingers crossed I can complete as many as possible!

Have you read any of these books? Did you love them? Hate them? Let me know!
Also, let me know if you’re participating as well!
