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.

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!

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!

Magical ReadAThon TBR!

New Header Image (14).jpg

Okay, so this is a Harry Potter themed ReadAThon that sounds like tonnes of fun! I will copy and paste the info I used on my Monthly ReadAThon Guide for how this ReadAThon works as it is unique! As this is a 4 week ReadAThon is does cross over with the two monthly ReadAThons I always participate in, Duodecathon & #AYearAThon.

Magical ReadAThon goes from 2nd till 29th. The #AYearAThon goes from 2nd to 8th & Duodecathon is from 8th to 14th. I will post separate TBRs for each so it doesn’t get confusing in one post.

Untitled design (13)

Copied from my April ReadAThon Guide

This is a 4 week long ReadAThon that is based on Harry Potter and when I discovered this I was like yes bitch I’m joining!! Anyway, this ReadAThon is based on the OWL (Ordinary Wizarding Level) exams at Hogwarts. So basically there are challenges for each of the 12 school subjects that Hogwarts students could take. So each challenge you complete is 1 OWL. You cannot double up challenges, so 1 book per challenge!  You complete challenges and strive for the highest overall OWL grade. Unlike the books you don’t get an OWL grade for each subject, you just get an OWL for each completed subject challenge and depending on how many OWLs you get overall a corresponding grade is awarded. You can see the grades below.

Grades:

Fail Grades:
T = Troll: Did not show up at your OWL examinations (Didn’t start a challenge)
D = Dreadful: Start but not finished an OWL task
P = Poor: Sit only 1 OWL

Pass Grades:
A = Acceptable: Sit (and pass) at least 2 OWLs (complete 2 challenges)
E = Exceeds Expectations: Sit (and pass) at least 3 OWLs (complete 3 challenges)
O = Outstanding: Sit (and pass) at least 5 OWLs (complete 5 challenges)

Subjects & Challenges:

Ancient Runes – A book with a symbol on the cover
Arithmancy – Read a book with a number on the cover or in the title
Astronomy – Read a Sci-Fi Book
Care of Magical Creatures – Read a book that includes Magical Creatures OR Features a Magical Creature on the Cover
Charms – Read a Fantasy Book
Defence Against the Dark Arts – Read a book about/featuring secret societies/clubs

2018 Winter Biannual Bibliothon Wrap Up

New Header Image (4)

So the Winter Biannual Bibliothon finished over 12 hours ago for me here in Aus. I am really happy with how much I read even though I didn’t complete every challenge. So let’s get straight into what I read!

The only challenge I did not complete was the ‘Read the group book’ challenge. I started Otherworld by Jason Segel but I wasn’t really feeling the book after a couple chapters so I put it down and picked up something else on my TBR instead.

Read a Sequel

Read a book you’ve never heard of before

Originally for this challenge, I was going to read Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee however when I got to reading it, I just didn’t feel like picking it up so instead I was just scrolling through audible to see what I could spend my credit on that I hadn’t heard of before and I saw Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. At that point, I thought ‘why don’t I just find an Agatha Christie book I haven’t heard of’ so that is what I did. One of my 2018 goals was to read more Agatha Christie books, so this helps!!

I listened to about 40% of Strange the Dreamer during the ReadAThon but I started it before the ReadAThon & didn’t finish it during the ReadAThon either but I was up to 71% at the end of the ReadAThon.

I only read 2% of this book as I started and then fell asleep as I was exhausted after working all day at the Australia Day Pool Party at the Aquatic Centre I work at.

I also listened to 12% of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Well, that is all for my wrap up! The #24in48 ReadAThon started as Winter Biannual Bibliothon finished so it is currently going on. I will have a Wrap Up for it up in a couple days as well as reviews for Every Heart a Doorway, Down Among the Sticks and Bones, The Rest of us just Live here & Darkness, Be My Friend over the next day or so.
