Games of Book-a-thon: Round 1 and Sims-a-thon | Update

Evening Westerosi and fellows sims! Welcome to a Round 1 of Games of Books-athon and Sims-a-thon update! This month has gone by really quickly and holiday preparations for Russia next week are now well under way. I am planning on taking things to read on holiday, obviously, I can’t survive without books even while I’m away, but I am conscious that my reading rate may slow down and that I might not want to take some of the Games of Booksathon reads with me as they are heavy longer books.

Both readathons are running simultaneously from June 1st to June 30th, so I have managed to get every read so far to cross off a prompt from each readathon. I am really pleased with my progress so far and have gone from feeling woefully behind to quite on top of things pretty quickly!

Down the TBR Hole #6

Welcome back to this actually quite regular and cathartic feature one my blog! I am really enjoying culling my TBR list down to books I actually have an interest in reading and want to keep on my list. It’s fascinating to see what past Liz thought would be good to add on my list, and trying to understand why added books that I don’t actually remember ever seeing or clicking on! Down the TBR Hole #5 saw series bite the bullet, and classics saved from the TBR bin. Much like last week, it is a mixed bag of books. Today we start at 223, let’s see what happens!

So, how does it work?

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Down the TBR Hole #5

Welcome back to this actually quite regular and cathartic feature one my blog! I am really enjoying culling my TBR list down to books I actually have an interest in reading and want to keep on my list. It’s fascinating to see what past Liz thought would be good to add on my list, and trying to understand why added books that I don’t actually remember ever seeing or clicking on! Down the TBR Hole #4 saw a cull of romance and Belinda Jones biting the proverbial dust, whereas this week’s edition is a little more varied and if I am being quite honest, interesting! ! Today we start at 231 books, let’s see what happens!

So, how does it work?

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
