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

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!

Magical ReadAThon – N.E.W.Ts TBR

Header Image (20).png

First off I won’t be making an August TBR as between this & my BooktubeAThon TBR that covers the entirety of August. There will only be one other book added and that is whatever gets chosen as the BOTM for The YA Book Nerds.

Okay, so some of you may remember me taking my OWLs a few months back during the Magical ReadAThon! Well, now I’m ready to take my NEWTs!

This ReadAThon goes for the entirety of August.

How this round will work is all of the subjects that you completed during your OWLs you now have a chance to get a NEWT for. So you can only do the subjects you completed last time. Also, this round is a little different. Last time you were graded on how many subjects you were able to complete but this round there are 3 grades for each subject. So each subject has three challenges. One for Acceptable, on for Exceeds Expectations & one for Outstanding. These challenges also need to be completed in order. So you have to work your way from A, to E, to O.

You can find the announcement video HERE

Now onto the subjects, I completed in my OWLs:

Arithmancy
Care of Magical Creatures
Charms
Divination
Potions
Transfiguration

So now I will go through each subject and list the challenges & what I hope to read for each challenge. This TBR will be mainly audiobooks as I am still in a huge reading slump, it may be gone by the time this starts but I just don’t know. Of course, there may be alterations between this and what I actually read. I will have to fit the August The YA Book Nerds BOTM into this month somewhere & there is also the rest of my BooktubeAThon TBR. I fit some in but there are others.
