Hello, and welcome to the first time I think I am going to abandon a readathon at the half way mark post. The Book Junkie Trials has been going on since the beginning of the month, and I signed up excitedly as a Magi in the hopes of reading and accruing points with my Magi brethren. Unfortunately this readathon really isn’t for me, so, I am going to share why below alongside my update!
Greetings from Russia! Yes, I am on my holiday, but I have my laptop and bookish brain with me and I am signing up to an awesome sounding readathon from here in rainy/cold Moscow. The Book Junkie trials is hosted by the wonderful Rachael Marie Book Junkie who posted a sign up video here and has posted all about the readathon her twitter @TheBookieTrials. It is a month long readathon/competitive reading event starting on July 1st for the whole of the bookish community, and I for one am excited to be taking part!
I think I am a little bit late with this wrap up. Oops. I was late with the sign up post though too so it’s following the right trend. This readathon was a lot of fun, and really made me read different types of books. The challenges were really thought through and it made for a great month’s reading!
Hi there folks! On this hump day, I bring you an exciting announcement! I am co-hosting a readathon this May with my fab friend, housemate, and eternal recommender of great books Emma at A Skirmish of Wit. We’re going to be reading Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables. Yep, we’re tackling a book fondly known as The Brick, and we’re here to debunk the misgivings you may have about reading this chunk and make reading this bad boy fun and manageable! Let’s get this show on the road!
D’you know what is better than doing two readathons at once? Yep, you guessed it, adding another one into the mix. I am a huge MCU fan, and Avengers Endgame has been something that I have been looking forward to for literally years. We’re booked to go and see it already, so I was excited when I saw an Avengers themed readathon to celebrate and knew I had to take part.
I know, I know, three readathons at once seems a bit excessive, but OWLs is something I love, and Tome Topple is helping me battle some of the bigger reads I am attempting at the moment. Tome Topple and OWLs are due to finish on April 26th and April 30th respectively, so there will be plenty of time between now and the end of the month to focus my reading for those readathons and hope other books I read fit for Avengers challenges, and then use the remaining two weeks of Avengers Readathon to have fun with the remaining challenges.

Tome Topple is back for round 8 guys, and I have last minute low key decided to sign up! I’m already taking part in the OWLs Readathon 2019, and thought that Time Topple was a bit much to take on at the same time, but I missed the last round and decided that I wanted to take part. Heck, some of the reads cross over too, so really it’s just readathon efficiency! I’ve actually already finished a few tomes this year (The Priory of the Orange Tree and Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell are not short books people) but I am ready to pick up some terrific tomes and crack on with the big’uns.
Tome Topple is a two week readathon created by Sam aka Thoughts on Tomes and this time the readathon is taking place from midnight in your timezone on 13th April until 11:59pm on 26th April. The aim of this readathon is to read big books, aka books over 500 pages aka “tomes”, so unlike many readathons, it’s about the number of pages in a book rather than the quantity of books you manage to finish over the fortnight. Want more information? You can watch Sam’s announcement video or check out the readathon Twitter page and/or the Goodreads group. Continue reading “Tome Topples | Sign Up and TBR”
It’s that time of year again where we strap on our magical thinking caps and get ‘studying’ for our O.W.Ls. For those of you who have absolutely no idea what I am talking about, the Magical Readathon – O.W.Ls edition is back, and is bigger and better than ever. Based on the Ordinary Wizarding Levels – tests that Hogwarts Students sit in their 5th year of school – the readathon features a series of reading prompts inspired by the school subjects offered at Hogwarts.
