Hello! Aentee from Read at Midnight is hosting the super cute, sure to be fun #ReadersCrossing readathon!  I absolutely adored her PokemonGo themed readathon last year, and so when I saw she was hosting one that was Animal Crossing themed, I just knew I had to participate. The readathon runs from today, December 10th, and goes until December 31st.  The challenges are set up like a bingo board. I’ve decided to base… Read More

Hello!  I hope everyone had a good week last week, and for my fellow Americans, a happy Thanksgiving!  Today I’m going to share with you all what I read during the Thanksgiving Readathon, which ran from Nov. 22nd – 26th.  You can also check out my TBR post for the readathon here! So, I didn’t get everything on my TBR read, but I had such a busy week, I still think I didn’t… Read More

Hello, and Happy Thanksgiving Eve to all my other fellow Americans!  I’m so excited to share with you all my TBR for the Thanksgiving Readathon hosted by Ottavia at Novels and Nonfiction and Jackie from Death At Tsundoku! This is a super low-key, stress-free readathon, and I’ve been so busy lately, it is exactly what I need.  So, if you want to participate, here’s how: Read as many books as you can in those… Read More

Hey everyone! I may already have my Christmas tree up, but I still wanted to wrap-up what I read for the 2017 Halloween Readathon hosted by Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews! Sorry this is late, but I’ve been so busy the past few days, that I haven’t had a chance to share with y’all what I read, but I had so much fun participating that I still had to share. So, here we… Read More

Hello! So, on Saturday, I participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon.  It was sort of a last minute decision, so I wasn’t as organized with this one as Dewey’s readathon in April, and I had a few things to do that evening.  That being said, I still read quite a bit, and I’m really happy with how the readathon went for me! Reading Update First, I read the last chapter in The Haunting… Read More

GUYS! I’m so excited Wonderless Reviews is hosting another Halloween readathon this year, and I am pumped!  I had so much fun participating last year, and I know I’m going to love it this year, too.  Plus, I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump these past few weeks, and I think a readathon is just the thing I need to bring me out of it.  So, today, I’m going to… Read More

Hey everyone!  I know I just wrapped up a read-a-thon a few days ago, but I’m already ready to jump into another!  I’m so excited to be participating in Wonder Week, a bingo read-a-thon, hosted by Rimpy from rimpysreads.  The read-a-thon starts today, August 25th, and goes through September 1st. The goal is simple.  Based off the bingo board below, read books that fit the descriptions and get a bingo! I’m going… Read More

Hey everyone!  It’s a little late, but here is my wrap-up for this year’s Booktube-A-Thon.  I didn’t get as many of the challenges done as I had hoped, and even the challenges that I did do, I didn’t finish all the books completely, but I still had a good time, and actually read quite a bit more than the previous weeks, so yay for that! 1. Read a book with a person… Read More

Hey everyone! So, this is really impromptu on my part, but I’ve decided to participate in the BookTube-A-Thon!  I wasn’t going to, just for the fact that I didn’t really know when it was, and I’m not a booktuber, but after seeing so many other bloggers participating, and just the hype about it starting today in general, I decided “why not?!”  I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump these past… Read More

Well everyone, we did it! How did you all do? Yesterday was chilly and rainy, and so it was perfect readathon weather. While I didn’t read the entire time, I read so much yesterday! I did have to stop reading to go to bed last night, because I had church in the morning and didn’t want to fall asleep then (lol), so I went to bed around midnight. I had hoped to… Read More
