Read-A-Thin TBR

I’ve wanted to participate in a readathon for so long because of how big my TBR pile has gotten. I’ve always been too scared to join in because of the time commitment for readathons. I have two speeds when it comes to reading – extremely fast or extremely slow. I always felt like readathons would put more pressure on me to read a certain amount which could then put me in a book slump, which I really don’t want!

I stumbled across the ‘Read-A-Thin’ which has been created by ACourtofBooksandLove, JessicaMarie493 and AVeryBookishGirl. This readathon is taking place throughout the whole of August, so there’s plenty of time to read without any of the pressures of a short readathon. I feel like there’s a lot more variety with this readathon when I saw the challenges, and I’m definitely really excited to take part!


Rules and Challenges as seen on JessicaMarie493‘s blog!

Rules

  • You will have the entire month to read these books.
  • The goal is to complete 6 challenges!
  • You can double up on challenges. In other words, you can use one book for two different challenges!
  • So you only have to read 3 books in a month to completely finish the readathon! Easy!

Challenges:

  • Read a 2017 release
  • Read a book that is the same color (or a similar color) as your birthstone
  • Read a diverse book
  • Read a book with a title or author with the same first letter as the first letter in your first name (the words “a” and “the” don’t count)
  • Read a book that is related to your favorite emoji
  • Read a book starting with a letter from TBR (the word “the” doesn’t count)
  • Read a book with a summer themed cover
  • Read a book with a warm colored cover (orange, red, yellow, brown)
  • Start and finish a series
  • Read a book in 24 hours
  • Read a new to you author
  • Book with water on the cover
  • Read a book set in summer
  • Buddy read a book
  • Read a book recommended to you by someone in the book community
  • Read a guilty pleasure read
  • Read an adult/new adult book
  • Read a book outside of your favourite genre

Like all readathons, they’re supposed to be fun and encourage you to read. I’m going to try not to put too much pressure on myself to read all of the books that I’ve chosen, but I’m aiming to enjoy the time that I spend reading!
