I’m so excited for this!
So, over on Goodreads, I’m in a couple groups that are centered around polls. About a week ago another member named Camille posted a poll explaining that she wanted to create a readathon and was looking to see if anyone was interested in participating, cohosting, or helping with the organization. I responded that I would love to help cohost, and it’s happening!
It’s called the BacktoSchool readathon and it’s taking place from August 22nd to the 28 and I’m one of the hosts! I’ll be hosting sprints over on the btsreadathon twitter handle Wednesday the 24th from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and I will probably hold reading sprints on my personal twitter 🙂
The idea is to power through as much as your tbr as you can before school starts! I know that for me especially, I had a very difficult time balancing my fun reading with my school reading and assignments.
Your TBR can be however long and however you want it to be, but if you’re like me and you like to do reading challenges: here are the optional reading challenges for the readathon:
- Read a short book (Open to interpretation, if you consider it to be a short book then it qualifies)
- Read a book over 400+ pages
- Read the 1st book in a series
- Read a book from the Host Recommendations list
- Read a book set in Summer
- Read a book that’s been on your TBR over 6 months
- read 7 books
*Bonus Challenge!* Procrastinate and watch some Netflix!!
There’s also an Instagram challenges for bookstagram you can choose to partake in 🙂
Monday – take a pic of your TBR pile
Tuesday – your snack or drink
Wednesday – summer books recommendation
Thursday – your reading spot
Friday – show your reading progress
Saturday – a shelfie
Sunday – favorite books you’ve read for school
Please follow @btsreadathon on Instagram – Camille will be reposting her favorite pictures! You just need to use a hashtag #btsreadathonDayX (replace the X with 1-7)
The Outsiders (Under 250 pages)
Ten Thousand Skies Above You (400+ pages)
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (1st in a series)
The Sky is Everywhere (Host Recommendation)
Second Chance Summer (Book set in Summer)
White Hot Kiss (Book on TBR for over 6 months)
I’m choosing to leave my 7th TBR book option empty and I’ll see what I feel like reading when I come to it.
So that’s it for today
let me know if you decide to participate! I think it’ll be super fun 🙂
