Wrap Up: May 2020

Last month I read 17 books. I also I finished my JourneyAThon and Bookemon TBRs.

I track stats including genre, special formats like plays or graphic novels, some types of representation for authors and main characters, and my star ratings. I also track the different book “projects” I’ve created for myself. You can read the descriptions for each project on my About page.

The stats and reviews for last month’s books are: Continue reading “Wrap Up: May 2020”

Wrap Up: April 2020

Last month I read 25 books. I also I finished my O.W.L.s to become an Herbologist for the Magical Readathon.

TBR: JourneyAThon and Bookemon, Round 3

The JourneyAThon and Bookemon readathons, both in round 3, will occur during all of May this year. I’ve participated in both readathons in earlier rounds, and they’re a ton of fun. Bookemon is all about reading books to collect Pokemon by types. For JourneyAThon, readers need to pick a path across a fictional map to the destination city, and there are lots of travel choices along the way!

Both readathons have awesome systems in place for picking teams and counting points to make it extra fun. I’ve found myself distracted by those features in past, putting more time into points than reading, so I’m just going to stick to matching books to prompts to guide my TBR.

The books I’m going to read, along with the prompts they fill, are:

Wrap Up: March 2020

Last month I read a colossal 21 books! AND I finished all the challenges for the March of the Mammoths, Women’s History Month, and Sims-A-Thon readathons. It’s been so long since I accomplished that for a readathon.

I track stats including genre, special formats like plays or graphic novels, some types of representation for authors and main characters, and my star ratings. I also track the different book “projects” I’ve created for myself. You can read the descriptions for each project on my About page.

TBR: O.W.L.s Magical Readathon – Year 3

Ah, a readathon of epic fantasy proportions. The premise is to choose a Harry Potter-related career and read books based on the testing requirements to enter that career. How fun is that? The creator goes through an incredible amount of work to set up the O.W.L.s readathon (April 2020) and, in a few months, the N.E.W.T.s readathon. I participated in both last year (trying to become a Curse Breaker) and had a blast. Full information about the readathons can be found at the Magical Readathon Twitter account.

Since I bought plants for the first time this year & haven’t managed to kill them yet, I’m feeling confident enough to pursue the Herbologist career. Below are the O.W.L.s I’ll need to achieve and optional seminar requirements, along with their reading prompts and the books I chose.

I also track the different book “projects” I’ve created for myself. You can read the descriptions for each project on my About page.

TBR: March of the Mammoths

The final readathon I’ll be participating in this month is March of the Mammoths Round 2.

I absolutely love the name. 😀 Find out more about the creator and the readathon in the announcement video.

It’s both a very simple readathon and a very difficult one. There’s only one challenge: read a book with 800+ pages. Whew!

For Round 2 of March of the Mammoths, I’ll be reading:

TBR: Sims-A-Thon

 

Next month I’ll be participating in three (three!) month-long readathons. I’ll be posting my TBRs for all three over the next few days. The first is for Sims-A-Thon Round #3.

The Sims has been in my life since Sims 1 came out in 2000 and is by far the game franchise I’ve spent the most time playing (literally thousands of hours over the years). Naturally I have to participate in a Sims-themed readathon!
