Hello, lovelies! I am more than excited to share with you the books I’m planning to read in the final days of 2019. I have been thinking about what books to include since Vicky and I started talking about the prompts for this round. Let’s talk about what books I plan to read (but will probably change a million times.) This readathon will be going on starting December 26th (at midnight in your time zone) until December 31st (right up until the ball drops!)

Prompts:

Read a 2019 release

I picked books that I’m really excited about, but for some reason just haven’t picked them up yet. Knowing how I am though, I’m sure I’ll change my mind and end up reading different books that fit the prompts. You’ll have to wait for my wrap up to find out!

Let me know what you plan to read for this readathon in the comments!

End of Year-A-Thon: Round Two!

Hello, lovelies! The ever wonderful Vicky @ What Vicky Read and I are back again this year to host one of the final readathons of the year, End of Year-A-Thon! Last year, we came up with this readathon as that last-ditch attempt to reach our GoodReads goals, to read those last few books we swore we’d read in 2019, and to have fun reading with friends in the final few days of the year.

Somehow my TBR has gotten even longer than it was this time last year, despite reading over 200 books so far in 2019. And I’m sure I’m not alone in this. We all struggle from the ever-growing TBR lists. This readathon is here to help!

Remember all those books we talked about in January that we definitely planned to read in 2019? Well, if you’re like me, you’ve only read a handful of those. We have come up with a few changes to the prompts we created last year, that will hopefully assist in finishing off those last few books you’ve been dying to read before the end of the year.

There are six prompts, which I know seems like a lot, but feel free to use one book for more than one prompt. Combine however you see fit or don’t use the prompts at all, just come and read with us from December 26th until December 31st.

Read a 2019 release

Read a book with a red cover

Read a book from a series you haven’t finished

Read a book under 300 pages

Read a book released before 2019

Read a diverse book

Personally, I will be selecting one book for each prompt because I’m a lady that needs options to choose from when doing readathons. I’ve already started thinking about what books I will be including in my TBR  for this. My TBR post will be coming in early December, so keep an eye out for that!

Finally, if you want to stay updated on all things End of Year-A-Thon follow either myself or Vicky on twitter, Amanda’s Twitter & Vicky’s Twitter. Leave a comment with any questions and let us know if you will be participating! And don’t forget to use the hashtag #EndofYearathon

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

End of Yearathon – Wrap Up

Happy New Year lovelies! The time has come to close out the last readathon of the year! For those of you that don’t know, I teamed up with Vicky @ What Vicky Read to bring you End of Yearathon (click here to read the announcement post). We thought this would be the perfect readathon for anyone that needed some motivation to read a few more books to meet their personal goals, GoodReads goals, or just to read those books that you didn’t manage to pick up yet. Feel free to check out my TBR list with the books I wanted to read here. This readathon started on December 26th and lasted until today (the 1st of January). I’m here today to share with you how I did this week.

These are the books I managed to read for the readathon! The first two were audiobooks and the last three were phyisical books. My goal was to read five books and I succeeded, though they were not all the same five books that were on my TBR list. I had so much fun chatting on Twitter and Instagram with everyone that participated. I already can’t wait until we can host again next year!

Did you participate in End of Yearathon? Link me in your wrap up so I can see what books you read! Or comment below and let me know if that’s better for you!

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

End of Yearathon – TBR List

Happy Christmas Eve everyone! Who else is as ready for Christmas as I am? As it’s my first Christmas with my daughter, it’s going to be a special one for sure. After Christmas, I am co-hosting a read-a-thon with Vicky from the 26th of December to the 1st of January. We hope to help ourselves and others get those final books read in 2018. Whether you need to catch up to your GoodReads goal, or if you just have books you want to read before the year is over, this is the read-a-thon for you!

 

We have come up with a few challenges to help to pick out books for a TBR list! Feel free to play with the challenges, or not! You can read with us the whole time or just one day! I am going to pick a book for each of the challenges so that I have some books to choose from depending on what mood I’m in.
