Hello witches, wizards, house-elves and muggles! I am struggling to believe that we are pretty much half way through August, which mean half-way through this round of N.E.W.Ts. I love the versatility of Gi’s readathons and prompts and have got back into the reading groove. I am managing to fit in some ARCs that I have been meaning to read, and I am thinking about books I require for the various year long reading challenges I am participating in and trying to fit books in for those where I can. I have finished some properly brilliant books that have become absolutely favourites.
Hello witches, wizards, house-elves and muggles! August is upon us which means only one thing – the Magical Readathon is back with another N.E.W.Ts edition! I took part in my O.W.Ls back in April and I passed all of my subjects (yay go me) so I had the choice of career path, and therefore reading options going into this readathon. Gi (of The Book Roast) has really gone all out this year to make this the most magical reading experience, and so I had fun choosing a career for O.W.Ls and plan to stay on the right path.

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!
Evening Westerosi and fellows sims! Welcome to Round 1 of Games of Books-athon and Sims-a-thon, because yes, you have probably guessed it, I am doing another readathon double header in June. There are so many challenges for the latter one that I have focused my TBR on the Game of books-a-thon prompts in the knowledge that they will probably fit one or more of the challenges in Sims-a-thon.
Thankfully, both are running from June 1st-June 30th, and the challenges overlap, or work for both so I have managed to get books to completely cross over! I have decided to do a combined thread on Twitter which is where I will post updates throughout the readathon.
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”
