Biannual Bibliothon & Make Me Read It Wrap Up

Well, I had a lot of fun doing both of these readathons even if I didn’t finish all of the books I set out to read. But that’s okay! I still managed to get some read and reviewed and I enjoyed the ones I did read.

Biannual Bibliothon

For this readathon I only completed one book out of the five I was hoping to get to.

Here’s what I read:

  • Girl Against the Universe: Completed!
  • The Unexpected Everything: 23 pages read
  • Red Rising: 6% read
  • The Archived: N/A
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: N/A

I didn’t have a chance to start all of the books I wanted to, but I still managed to read some books, which I enjoyed.

As for the video challenges, I completed three of the seven:

The character channel takeover challenge was definitely my favorite and it sparked some creative juices. I wish I could do more videos like these ones but I don’t know exactly what I would do!

Make Me Read It

The two books that were voted for were Shadow & Bone and Lola and the Boy Next Door for this readathon.

  • Shadow and Bone: Completed!
  • Lola and the Boy Next Door: 59 pages read

I just ended up running out of time, unfortunately. And, like most of the country, I’ve been obsessively playing PokemonGO! so that hasn’t helped me at all.

In Conclusion

I read two books completely and read a few more that were interesting to me, and one that was hard to get into but I hope gets better. I had a lot of fun with both of these readathons and I just might join them again next time! Maybe life will be nice and let me not be as busy next time.

How did your reading weeks go? Did you complete all of the goals you were trying to reach, or did you stumble a bit?

makemereaditYou guys voted for Make Me Read It, hosted by Ely @ Tea & Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley, and the results are in!

I’m very excited to be reading the books you guys picked out. As I stated in my previous post, I’ll be aiming to read two books during the week, and they are:

If I have the time and energy to read more books, I will, but as it stands these are the two I will definitely be reading during the week!

Here are the results broken down in the poll:

As you can see, the top two were definitely popular picks, but I see a lot of people also really enjoy Rebel of the Sands and Starflight. I’ll definitely check them out eventually, but for now I’m going to just focus on the two top books.

Here’s some reminder information about Make Me Read:

  • Time: July 9th-16th
  • The Rules: When the readathon comes along, you read the books in the order of most votes. For example, if one book gets 10 votes—you read that first, then the one that got 7 and so on. If there’s a tie, then it’s your preference. The goal is to read as many as possible.
  • The Tag: #MakeMeRead on Twitter

So as it stands I’ll be reading Shadow and Bone first, then Lola. I hope to enjoy each book as I read it because they’re such well beloved books in their own right!

Are you participating in the readathon? What were your top books on your list that you’ll be reading? How many books do you plan to read?

Make Me Read It Readathon

makemereaditHey guys, I discovered this cool readathon hosted by Ely @ Tea & Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley where it’s all about YOU, my lovely peeps, voting on what books I should read for this readathon! It sounds wicked exciting, so let’s go over the ground rules, the times, and the books I’m interested in reading – and you choosing from!

When: July 9th-16th in your timezone

The Rules: Look at the books you own, either physical, e-book or ones you’ve borrowed from the library and pick out a few you really want to read, or feel like you should read. It’s up to you how many you pick, personally I’d pick a few more than you expect to be able to read in a week. Example: if you think you’ll only read two, pick out five books or if you think you can read seven, pick out ten.

Make a list of these books on your blog, or make a video, or a Goodreads shelf or post a picture on Instagram—whatever is easiest for you. Then get friends, other bloggers/booktubers etc. to vote on which books you HAVE to read.
When the readathon comes along, you read the books in the order of most votes. For example, if one book gets 10 votes—you read that first, then the one that got 7 and so on. If there’s a tie, then it’s your preference. The goal is to read as many as possible.
The Tag: If you’re a Twitter or Instagram user, you can join in the fun chatting and such with the hashtag #MakeMeRead.
The Books: Alright, so since I’m a slow reader who has zero motivation to read during work weeks lately, I’m going to list six books for you guys to choose from, but my actual goal is to read a minimum of two books. I’m purposefully not picking ginormous books for this reason. You have a max of three choices:
Note: The poll will be recreated at the beginning of next week, June 26th, and again on July 3rd, as the time limit for the poll is only for a week, but I will keep tallies of the votes!
