TGIF, am I right? I feel like this has been the longest January in the history of long January’s, and I am super glad that I have a weekend of relaxing reading plans to look forward to. This weekend sees the return of 24in48, it couldn’t have come at a better time. I have no plans and no money, the perfect mix for staying in and reading!

So….do you remember when I said I struggled with reading challenges in this post last week? Remember when I said I was only going to do one year long one and it was going to be this Around the Year in 52 Books one? Yeah….it lasted precisely 3 days into 2019 because I stumbled across this reading challenge that my friend Paige has set up. It’s designed to fit with what you want to read (after all Paige couldn’t find a reading challenge that worked for her so she set this up) whilst pushing the boundaries and opening genres, tropes, authors, and content you may previously have avoided or missed all together. Sounds pretty simple eh?
First things first, Paige. Well she is awesome, that’s a given, and she explains this readathon over on her announcement post @ Just One More Pa(i)ge, her twitter @just1morepaige, and her Instagram @just.one.more.paige, so go and check her out, follow her, and then sign up too. There are 12 challenges in total, one for each month, so it’s not too taxing and should fit with a normal reading schedule and along side reads you already have planned without taking over. There is also a handy #justonemorepaigereadingchallenge2019 on Twitter and Instagram, so check those out to see how others are doing! Continue reading “Just One More Pa(i)ge Reading Challenge 2019”
Evening all, I hope you’re all well and not stuck in any form of rut in this middle ground between Christmas and New Year. We’re quite lucky in our house, my Mum’s birthday falls on the 28th December so we usually do something to celebrate and it’s a good way of seeing through this Chrimbo Limbo. It’s a time I like to use to think about what worked and what didn’t work throughout the year and things that I would like to carry on with, or start ready for the new year.
With this in mind, I’ve been thinking about books, readathons, and reading challenges. The year is nearly out and I think I am going to really struggle to complete 2018’s Around the Year in 52 Books challenge but I have quite enjoyed this particular one. I wrote about my struggles and feelings relating to this sort of thing a few days ago and now as I have thought about it, I have chosen this as the only year long reading challenge I am going to attempt in 2019.
As the year goes by and I begin to fulfil the challenges, I plan to update the list and state which book I read. I am also planning on updating my Goodreads throughout. If you decide to take part too then there is a great Goodreads group that is the epicentre of all things relating to the reading challenge and has hints and ideas if you’re struggling for an idea in a particular area!

2019 is around the corner, and in this awesome reading community, I think we all know that a new year signals a new round of Bout of Books! The readathon is entering it’s 24th edition (I mean, wow guys!), and if I am honest, I can’t believe that this will be my 13th time participating in such a great event. There is no better way to kick off a new reading year, to start new reading challenges, and to pick up all of those books you didn’t finish in 2018 than with a week long readathon, so why don’t you join us!
Good evening witches and wizards, our favourite readathon is back with another instalment and we are getting ready for the festive season at Hogwarts! Gi of the Book Roast is hosting another instalment of the Magical Readathon that started way back in early 2018 and is back for another go. It’s running from 17th December to 26th December and is a plot your own adventure/challenge kinda deal that sounds pretty damn cool. Gi always put maximum effort into these events, and I can’t wait for it to begin again. If you want more information, check out the announcement video here!

Pssst, c’mon over here, I have a secret for my fellow book lovers and Hogwarts students! Professor Flitwick is offering all prospective OWLs and NEWTs candidates the opportunity to submit coursework that will help you during exam season. It’s running next week, from 8th -14th October, so why don’t you join me and my classmates. It’s always worth putting a little work in early in the term!
Eek, welcome, hi there! It’s already Bout of Books time and I am super excited. It’s the third Bout of Books readathon of 2018, the 23rd edition overall, and my 12th time joining in with what has become my favourite readathon around. I was in a reading slump last time round and that really affected my involvement and enjoyment last time round. I’m glad to report that’s not the case this time round, I’m reading and enjoying the books I’m experiencing too. Let’s get signed up!
