Hello everyone! Already irritated by the title of today’s post? It’s no wonder since I RARELY (i.e.
never??) join any readathons or reading challenges just because I am really moody reader who changes their monthly tbr’s multiple times (that is also the reason why you don’t see any tbr posts on this blog) and still doesn’t stick to it but this month I want to go out of my bookish comfort zone by joining a themed readathon hosted by Sage!
Princess-A-Thon runs from September 1st to September 30th and is all about (Disney) princesses. You can visit Sage’s original post with more info here. As soon as I saw all the challenges I knew I HAD to join.
In order to actually manage this readathon I decided to choose Team Faeri as my team so that I can make books count for 4 challenges. It was really hard to choose a team since they all have cool abilities and the design is amazing!! I also included some school reads which fit to the challenges I know I’ll have to read
and I want the credit points, haha + I used the same books a couple of times which is a bit boring but otherwise I know I wouldn’t be able to read that much.
I’ll update on my progress of the readathon either here or on my Goodreads account. Maybe, I’ll even write some kind of “wrap up” post but I’m not sure about that yet. Let me first show you my tbr though: Continue reading “My TBR for Princess-A-Thon 👸🏽”
I somehow rarely participate in any reading challenges or book tags and to be honest, I don’t even have an excuse for it. So, today is going to be a different kind of post because I’m… *drum roll*… going to change that this year!!!
I already set up my own reading resolutions and goals for 2019 (Setting Up A Reading Challenge 101 🖊️) and talked about my most anticpated releases of the year on this blog and to round things up I am joining the YEAR OF THE ASIAN READING CHALLNGE aka YARC hosted by Shelea (@Shut Up Shelea), Lily (@Sprinkles of Dreams), Vicky (@Vicky Who Reads) and CW(@The Quiet Pond) in order to:
- Read more diversely
- Participate in a Reading Challenge
The Challenge is about reading as many books written by Asian authors as possible throughout the whole year and that shouldn’t be that difficult considering all these releases coming out this year!! The bloggers included different levels depending on the amount of books you would like to read represented through cute little badges. I’m aiming for the very first level which is the Philippine tarsier since I’ve put my general reading goal down to 20 books. Therefore, it would be nice if 1-10 of the books are by Asian authors.
If you want to join the YARC as well you can sign up here and read the guidelines on any of the bloggers posts. I am really excited for this Reading Challenge and all the amazing books by Asian authors that are coming out this year. I’ll keep track of my reads through this blog post, my goodreads page and my bookstagram.
