TBR Jar ReadAThon – Round #4 Announcement!

Dates: 24th – 30th of May, 2019

How it works

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, it really doesn’t matter. 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 to make it interesting)
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.

Extra Info

You can choose to pull the number of names you choose for your goal out of the jar prior to the ReadAThon or 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 or Instagram 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.

Yes! Another ReadAThon. By the end of MateAThon I will have been doing ReadAThons for over 4 weeks straight! I’m crazy, I know.

This round of Magical ReadAThon is an addition to the OWLs & NEWTs. Basically, there are 5 prompts and for each prompt you complete you will get an extra day prior to the next round of OWLs to complete the book you choose for that subject. In this case, it is for Charms, so if I completed 3 prompts I would be able to start my charms book 3 days before OWLs starts! She is also planning on doing this for other subjects between now & OWLs.
Also, the OWLs ReadAThon is apparently happening in April I heard.

June CramAThon 2018 Wrap Up

Header Image (11)

So the CramAThon finished last night as I am soo happy with how much I read! I completed all 7 challenges as well as partly listened to 2 other audiobooks & partly read another book. I’ll just tell you here what those books were as they weren’t actually for the CramAThon.
Also here is my reading vlog for the full week of CramAThon

Blog titles (24).png

During the week I was listening to & finished Harry Potter & the Philosopher’s Stone. I didn’t record what the starting point was for this week but it was fairly early into the book & I completed it during this week. I also read 27 more pages of King of Ashes by Raymond E. Feist which is a book I’m slowly making my way through. Lastly, I listened to 188 pages of The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken on audiobook.

Scallywagathon Round 2 TBR

Header Image (5)

Okay, so some of you may remember me participating in round 1 back in November and guess what it is happening again! This ReadAThon was not on my May ReadAThon Guide as it was only announced 2 days ago. I am going to copy and paste the info section from my the round 1 TBR as it is all working the same, the only difference is the challenges. This ReadAThon is pretty complex and can be confusing, so I hope my explanation helps you!

Blog titles (22)

This ReadAThon starts at midnight on the 20th of May & ends at 11:59 on the 27th of May.

You can watch Ali’s video HERE for a whole in depth desrciption of the ReadAThon along with an example TBR but I am going to try and explain it!

Firstly, the map!

*This was taken from the link in Ali’s video.*

Every number and letter on the map corresponds to a challenge in the graphic below!
Okay, so how this map works is first you pick a number between 1 & 5. Once you pick your starting point you follow the corresponding coloured line to the next challenge. Most of them have more than one option you can choose from. Then when you get to your first stop you then follow that number or letter’s corresponding coloured line to the next challenge until you get to the treasure chest. All of the tracks you take will have 4 challenges but if you finish those 4 in the week you are welcome to continue onto any of the other challenges you wish.
So, here is an example of how to navigate the map. I am going to start at 1, from there I will follow the dark purple line to 6, from there I will follow the orange line to A and then from A I will follow the dark blue line to 9 and then to the treasure! Hopefully, that makes sense.

The path I will be following is:

5 > 8 > A > 9

5: Calm before the storm – The first in a series

A Shot in the Dark by Lynne Truss

9781408890493.jpg

This is an Adult Mystery that I received an ARC of and need to read by the end of June. This one comes out 28th of June in Aus.

8: Yo Ho Ho! – Book that starts with ‘RRRRRR’

Rise of Fire by Sophie Jordan

61FNM2HnNyL._SL500_

This is the second book in the Reign of Shadows duology. I listened to Reign of Shadows a while ago and really enjoyed it! Reign of Shadows is a dark Rapunzel retelling and it ended on a rather large cliffhanger so I’m keen to continue.

A: Marooned: Standalone

Endless Night by Agatha Christie

51vkX3TwXUL._SL500_

There is a heap of Agatha Christie books on Scribd, so I hunted through her standalones and came up with this one!

9: Blow down the man – A book by a woman author

The Theft and the Miracle by Rebecca Wade

y450-293 (4)

This is one of the books I am reading for the Book to School challenge. It is also by a female author, so perfect!!

Are You Reading More Than A 5th Grader? ReadAThon TBR

Header Image (2)

Okay, so you may have seen my TBR for the Book To School Challenge over at TBR and Beyond on Facebook! Well alongside that challenge they have a week-long ReadAThon going on to help us get those Book To School TBRs complete!! I thought I would share my TBR here!!

If you want to join in! Head over to TBR and Beyond and press join!! It is a super fun group with heaps of things going on! We even have author chats coming up in the next few months!

Blog titles (2)

So as there are no challenges, I don’t have a definite TBR, but these are the books that I hope to have finished by the end of the ReadAThon!

So I plan to read 6 books. 3 audiobooks and 3 books. I have already started Dragon on Trial and Beneath the Sugar Sky so I may have finished them before the readathon or at least read a fair chunk of them. They are both really short, so I probably will get them finished beforehand.
Krakens and Lies is pretty short too, but I want to continue the Menagerie series as it has been awesome so far!
Mark of the Thief is one of the books on my Book To School TBR, so I need to get to it!
Snow Like Ashes is the BOTM for the Facebook group I run, The YA Book Nerds, so I need to get on that reread so I can write the discussion questions.
Lastly, Whisper is an eARC I have, however, the book is already out and I bought myself a physical copy yesterday when I saw it at Kmart. So hopefully I love it or that will be a waste of money! I have high hopes as I loved The Medoran Chronicles by Lynette Noni!

ReadAThon Guide – May 2018

New Header Image (24)

So it is time for the next ReadAThon Guide! This has all the ReadAThons I could find that are happening in May and corssover with May! I devide each ReadAThon guide up into time frames, however this month I couldn’t find any 2 – 4 week or month long ReadAThons.

New Blog Title (3)

The TBR BustAThon 24 Hour ReadAThon

This is a special edition that is just 24 hours. I’m not 100% sure when exactly this is as there are no times specified and it just says 4-5 of May. Which is more than 24 hours. You can find the ReadAThon Twitter HERE and hopefully, they will post some more detailed info closer to the date if you’re interested in participating.

New Blog Title (4)

#AYEARATHON

This ReadAThon occurs every month and each month there is a different focus on what to read.

The ReadAThon goes from midnight on the 14th till 11:59 pm on the 20th of May.

You can find the info on their blog HERE & on their Twitter HERE!

The Buzzword ReadAThon

This ReadAThon is being hosted by Lala of BooksandLala on Youtube! This ReadAThon will be happening recurringly, they haven’t announced how often as yet though. The idea is that each round will have a Buzzword picked by the hosts and all the books you read have to be based on that buzzword. For this, the buzzword actually has to be in the title of the book, not just in the info about the book.
If you don’t know what Buzzword means, it is basically a word that is mentioned in the title or description about a book makes you definitely want to pick that book up. So it’s a category/thing that is something that really interests you and you love reading about. Some examples, my mum loves everything with Dragons, so her Buzzword is dragons. Cat @ Little Book Owl on YouTube’s Buzzword is Assassins.

The ReadAThon goes from midnight on the 7th of May till 11:59 pm on the 13th of May.

For this round, the Buzzword is “GIRL“. In the description of BooksandLala’s announcement video, she leaves a link with ideas of books with “Girl” in the title and she has also asked people to comment with recommendations of books with “Girl” in the title.
They are also having a group read which you can choose to participate in.

There will be live shows held before & at the end of the ReadAThon. The first Live show is on May 6th @ 1:00pm PST with BooksandLala & DylantheReader5 on BooksandLala’s channel & the second will be in the evening on the 13th of May on BooksandLala’s Instagram.

Make sure you use the hashtag #BuzzWordReadAThon on all social media posts!

Group Read:

Undead Girl Gang by Lily Anderson
Young Adult Fantasy Mystery

35707056

You can find Books and Lala’s announcement video HERE & the ReadAThon Twitter HERE!

MusicAThon

This one is a music-themed ReadAThon happening at the end of the month! There will be challenges and also a giveaway happening but no info has been posted yet.

The ReadAThon goes from midnight on the 21st of May till 11:59 pm on the 27th of May.

You can find the ReadAThons Twitter HERE to keep up with the upcoming info!

New Blog Title (6)

Moody May 2018

This is a month long ReadAThon held by fellow blogger Kathy @ Books & Munches! This goal of this ReadAThon/challenge is for the whole month you do not set a TBR, don’t make a list of books that you have to read and don’t pressure yourself! It is all about picking up what book you feel like reading at the time!

Rules:

The main rule is to NOT post a TBR! You still have to make a post/tweet/whatever saying you will join but no TBRs for May! You can post a full list of all the books on your physical/eBook/audiobook TBR, or maybe even a list of books you should be reading in May (eg. ARCs) but won’t be worrying about thanks to Moody May!
If you are talking about Moody May on Social Media use the hashtag #MoodyMayBM

Check out Kathy’s announcement post HERE!! Also just follow her as she is always holding awesome ReadAThons and challenges!
