Reading events are pretty much the #1 reason i want to have and keep a blog...beside of course keeping my reviews together... Readathons and my most favorite thing ever!

    October TBR & Readathons

    October!! YESS!! October is my favorite month! And it’s also my favorite time of year to read and do readathons! This October I plan on participating in 4. Crazy large amount…I know! Not sure if i’ll finish, but I really want to dedicate October to reading! Since i have a reading limit of 6ish books a month, I’ve decided to double up as much as possible…which makes this pretty challenging. I may need to change these up mid-month.

    Battle of the #CreepyClassics

    This year I will be hosting the Battle of the Creepy Classics. We will start with Nominations, which go live today. You may nominate any books you feel are perfect Fall or Halloween reads. These books must be classics though & for the purposes of this event, “classic” is defined as originally publish before 1950. After nominations, the books will compete every week and you all will be the judge. After weekly eliminations, the best books will move on in the competition, until only one book is still standing. The overall winning book will be announced on Halloween.

    Bout of Books 26

    Yes! It’s Bout of Books time! Are you participating? I’ve participated in about 8 out of the 26 round. I’m soo excited to start this one! My reading plans for this event is to mainly finish One Bad Apple and to make a lot of progress in Moby Dick. I also hope to post some backlog reviews! My favorite part of these events is the community, so hopefully I can meet some new bloggers and finish the challenges!

    Moby Dick Readalong

    Have you heard? Brona is doing a Moby Dick Readalong!! Moby Dick is one of my favorite books of all time. Up there with my H.G. Wells and Jules Verne favorites! I’m soo excited! I read it for the first time last summer and even bought a special leather-bound edition because I liked it so much. I hadn’t planned to read it again so soon…but why not? It’s a great book. The readalong will be from August 1, 2019 to February 29, 2020. Brona has a schedule up that spaces it at about 3 to 4 chapters a week! We will be using #MobyDickReadalong on social media.

    24 in 48 Readathon

    It’s readathon time again and soo soon! Woot! The 24 in 48 readathon is a super intense readathon where eryone aspires to read 24 hours out of the 48 hour weekend! I have participated in two of these in the past but haven’t succeeded yet with the 24 hours. I do have high hopes for this weekend though. I am off work all weekend and I have no foreseeable responsibilities that could distract me. Yay!
