Summer TBR Wipeout 2016 | Wrap-Up!

Summer TBR Wipeout

Hey guys!

The fantastic Summer Read-a-thon is now over! Boy does time seem to fly. In just a couple weeks, summer will actually be over and students will be back to school, and everyone else will be back from vacation all nice and tanned. (That is if they went on vacation, because some of us… -me- … have been working my ass off all summer long)

This read-a-thon is hosted by Olivia from The Candid Cover. This read-a-thon runs from July 3rd – August 14th. And the point of it, is to read as many books from your never ending TBR’s! Not to mention there is a sweet giveaway for all the participants as well!

MY SUMMER WIPEOUT

Wrap-Up

We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson

Ruined by Amy Tintera

Court of Fives by Kate Elliott

Poisoned Blade by Kate Elliott

The Mirror King by Jodi Meadows

The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow

The Swan Riders by Erin Bow


So I am horrible with sticking to TBR’s, and naturally I deviated from this one as well. BUT I did manage to read 5 of books on it. That counts as an accomplishment for me.

I also read 6 other books that didn’t happen to make it to my TBR for this read-a-thon. So I promise I’m not slow!


I hope everyone who joined in on this read-a-thon had as much fun as I did! I can’t wait for next year’s, if there will be one!

Until next time,

#ReadThemAllThon TBR

readthemallthon

Hey guys!

I will be participating in Aentee’s Pokemon Indigo League Read-a-thon: #ReadThemAllThon this month!

What Is It?

The Pokemon Indigo League #ReadThemAllThon is a 3 weeks long reading challenge based on theKanto’s Indigo League. Long-time fans of the series would recognise this as the first set of gyms Ash Ketchum had to conquer in his quest to become the Pokemon Master. Now you, my friends, will also embark on a journey to become the very best. Instead of fighting gym battles, you’ll be reading books instead!

When Is It?

The read-a-thon will run for 3 weeks between Sunday 14th August to Sunday 4th September.

You can sign up anytime between now and the end of the read-a-thon.

You can find all the other details HERE on Aentee’s announcement post!


So let’s get started and see the books/Pokemon I have chosen for the #ReadThemAllThon!
