End of Year-A-Thon: Round Four!

Hello, lovelies! Can you believe we’re already almost at the end of 2021? I absolutely cannot. This year has totally flown by. There has been good and bad for me. We moved and found out that we’re having another baby. So, it’s certainly been an exciting year. As for reading, it’s been a pretty good year for me, but there are always more books to read. And to help with that, Vicky and I are bringing End of Year-A-Thon back for its fourth year! If you’ve been a follower of this blog for a while you’ll know what that is. But if you’re new here, let me explain!

End of Year-A-Thon runs from December 26th to December 31st, starting and ending at midnight in your local time zone. Vicky from What Vicky Read and I thought it would be fun to create a readathon for the final days of the year to read just a few more books. I don’t know about you, but I definitely haven’t read all the books from my ‘books I’m going to read in 2021’ lists I made back in January. I also am going to need that final push to meet my GoodReads reading challenge. So, we’ve planned five prompts to help us read those books we were definitely going to read in 2021, but haven’t yet. This is a super flexible readathon, so use the prompts or don’t, just read with us as we close out the year!

Read a book released in 2021

Read a book from a series you’ve started but haven’t finished

Read a book by an own voices author

Read one of your most recently acquired books (whether bought, borrowed, gifted, etc.)

Read a book with gold on the cover

Well, there you have it. End of Year-A-Thon is back for its fourth year and these are our five prompts for this year. You can find the End of Year-A-Thon Twitter where Vicky and I will be hosting some reading sprints and sharing other readathon related things. Let me know in the comments if you think you’ll be participating this year!

Blogtober Day Twenty-Nine: Amanda’s Gothtober Wrap Up

Hello, lovelies! I know that there’s still a few days left in October. But I’ve managed to finish all of the books I was planning to read for Gothtober and I wanted to share that with you all! I had to change a few of my choices for the prompts because I DNF’d some of the books that were on my original TBR (you can find that here.)

Mythology
Pahua and the Soul Stealer by Lori M. Lee

Omens
The Death of Jane Lawrence by Caitlin Starling

Found Family
The Bronzed Beasts by Roshani Chokshi

Dark Romance
A Shadow in the Ember by Jennifer L. Armentrout

LGBTQ+ Representation
Into the Dying Light by Katy Rose Pool

Murder
The Hawthorne Legacy by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Classics
Within These Wicked Walls by Lauren Blackwood

BIPOC Representation
The Dating Dare by Jayci Lee

Disability Representation
The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones

I’m pretty proud of myself for actually managing to complete all these prompts. I DNF’d two of my original choices, so it’s not identical to the TBR I shared at the beginning of the month. But I managed to read books for all the prompts and I think that’s what counts. How did you do?

Amanda’s Magical Readathon: Orilium – The Novice Path TBR

Hi, lovelies! G has returned to us with a brand new version of The Magical Readathon! I’m honestly beyond excited about this because I loved the Magical Readathon in the past years when I did it. But with the author of the series that inspired the readathon being hugely transphobic, G has recreated this readathon with a brand new world of her own creation. I’m in awe of the amount of time and effort that it must have taken to think up and plan and organize everything for this. You can check out G’s announcement video with all of the details and stuff you need to know here!

Above is the ‘Novice Path’ which is the path I must take if I want to make it to Orilium and attend the academy there. To successfully venture on the Novice Path, I must complete two prompts, but I’m going to go for all seven. Each prompt must have their own book. So, here are the books I’m planning to read to complete the Novice Path and make it to Orilium.

The Novice Path Entrance: read a book with a map

The Crown of Gilded Bones by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Ashthorn Tree: a book that keeps tempting you (or the book on top of your TBR)

Dial A For Aunties by Jesse Q. Sutanto

The Mist of Solitude: read a standalone

The Twin Paradox by Charles Wachter

Ruin of the Skye: read a book featuring ghosts/haunted house, or other supernatural elements

Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas

Obsidian Falls: read a thriller or mystery book

Holdout by Jeffery Kluger

Tower of Rumination: read a five star prediction

Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Orilium Academy Arc: a book with a school setting

How We Fall Apart by Katie Zhao

There are also a few prompts that have to so with creating my character (which I plan to use in future rounds of this readathon) so, I am planning to attempt these prompts as well this month.

Background

Wildling: read a book largely set in a forest/outside

The Lovely and the Lost by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Province

Irtheria: read a book that features fae or elven characters

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Heritage

Earthling: read a book with elemental magic or an element work in the book/series title (air, fire, earth, or water)

The Nature of Witches by Rachel Griffin

So, these are all of the prompts that I am hoping to complete this month (if you read my TBR jar post, you may have noticed that I definitely borrowed from that list too. What are you reading this September?

Amanda’s Tome Topple TBR

Hi, lovelies! I’ve just seen the announcement for Sam’s latest round of Tome Topple (watch the announcement video here.) You can find all of the hosts of the readathon here: Sam from Thoughts on Tomes, Adri from Perpetual Page, Sam 2 from Will Read For Booze, Gaia from @lalettricesegreta on Instagram, Tori from Tori Morrow, Jocelyn from Yogi With A Book. I love this readathon because it’s a great motivator for me to finally pick up some of the bigger books that I have on my TBR. The rules for this readathon are simple: read books that are 500 pages or longer. There is a fun bingo board for this round and I will list the prompts below. This round of Tome Topple will run from March 15th-28th.

Tome that’s been on my TBR the longest
The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
This has been on my TBR for so long and I’ve put it on several TBR’s for previous Tome Topple rounds. I honestly probably won’t get to this one, but I like to have options when I make TBR’s like this.

An audiobook tome
Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
I’ve been rereading this series via audiobook so that I can read the newest release (Winterkeep), so this is the perfect choice for this prompt.

Tome with the most pages
The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon
Technically, the next book in this series is the tome with the most pages that’s on my TBR. But obviously I have to finish this one first. This one will count for several prompts too since I will probably continue the audiobook that I started the last round of Tome Topple.

Seasonally colored cover
Chain of Iron by Cassandra Clare
Yellow is a springtime color right? I’m going with it.

Read one tome
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
I’ve been working my way through a reread of all the books in the Grishaverse so that it’s all fresh in my mind for both the Netflix adaptation release in April and the publication of the second book in the Nikolai duology, which is coming in the end of March.

Tome by a BIPOC author
The Rage of Dragons by Evan Winters
I don’t know that I’ll get to this one, but I’ve heard incredible things about this book so I’m excited to read it.

Tome in a genre I don’t usually read
Chain of Iron by Cassandra Clare
Historical fiction/fantasy? I read some historical fiction/fantasy, but it’s definitely one of the genres I read the least from.

Tome from a series I haven’t read in a while
Gilded Serpent by Danielle L. Jensen
This is an eARC that’s on my TBR and the only ARC I have that’s more than 500 pages. I haven’t read this series since the second book was released, so I’m excited to get back into this world.

Tome that I started in a previous Tome Topple round
The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon
I started this in the last Tome Topple. I’m trying really hard to finished what’s published in this series this year, but sometimes these books are just so slow. I’ve heard things pick up again toward the end of this book.

Are you going to participate in this round of Tome Topple? What’s on your TBR? If not, what books over 500 pages are you hoping to read soon?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

End of Year-A-Thon Wrap Up

Hello, fellow book lovers! We are here today to talk a bit about the End of Year-A-Thon readathon that Amanda hosts with her friend, Vicky.

End of Year-A-Thon: Round Three!

Hello, lovelies! If you’ve been here a while you might already know what this announcement post is about (since it’s the third year this is being done), but if you’re new here hello! and welcome! Today I am here to talk about a readathon that I co-host with the wonderful Vicky over at What Vicky Read. We are back for the third year of End of Year-A-Thon, the last hoorah of readathons to get those books you said you were definitely going to read back in January. We’re here to help you add a few more ‘read’ books to that GoodReads goal of yours. If neither of those things are on your list of concerns, then for you we’re just here to give you a chance to read some books with friends before 2020 ends.

Let’s get into the details. End of Year-A-Thon will start on December 26th (at midnight in your timezone) and it will end on December 31st (again, at midnight in your timezone–Happy New Year!) We have five prompts this year that we’ve changed a bit. Feel free to use the prompts or not. This is a pretty flexible readathon, so you may combine as many prompts as you want. If you have one book that fits all five, great! Any kind of book will count, so grab those graphic novels, pick up your headphones and start listening to those audiobooks you’ve been meaning to start. Or don’t do anything of those things and just pick some books at random and read along with us!

Prompts

Read a 2020 release

Read a book written by a BIPOC author

Read your most recently acquired book (borrowed, bought, gifted, etc.)

Read a book with a star on the cover

Read a book from a series you’ve already started, but haven’t finished

So, these are the prompts we’ve chosen. I will personally be choosing one book for each prompt because, as I’ve said in the past, I like to have options when I’m doing readathons because I’m a mood reader. I can’t wait to see what everyone will be choosing for their TBR’s. I’ll be posting my TBR toward the beginning of December, but feel free to post yours whenever and don’t forget to link Vicky and me so we can see it! I’m going to link some stuff down below so you can all make sure to get all the updates. Let me know if you’re thinking of participating in the comments!

Amanda’s Olympic Games TBR

Hiii, lovelies! I’m back with another TBR post. I’ve been trying not to do so many readathons this year because I feel like it stressed me out a bit too much last year. I’ve done some low key without posting anything about it (aside from on Twitter). But this one sounds like too much fun and I have to participate. Here is the link to their twitter which has all the specifics for this readathon. It’s taking place for the entire month of June. I’ve taken the quiz from Uncle Rick’s website and I am a child of Hades (is anyone surprised by this? Because I’m not.) So, there are a few fun prompts and I’ll be listing them with what I  intend to read below (but if you’ve been here before you know I’ll probably read a completely different list of books.) Let’s get into the challenges.

Hades Challenges:

The Ghost King: Read a book featuring the undead.

This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers

Bring a book back from the dead by reading something you have already read before.

Hermes is the only Olympian free to visit the Underworld. Complete a prompt that honors Hermes. [Caduceus: Read a book with a snake on the cover.]

Optional Advanced Challenges:

Sword & Shield: A book featuring a character whom you would not get along with.

The Lovely War by Julie Berry

Monster Fighting: A book featuring magical creatures.

5 Worlds: The Sand Warrior by Mark Siegel, Alexis Siegel, Xanthe Bouma, Matt Rockefeller, & Boya Sun

I’m very excited about this list of books, so hopefully, I’ll manage to mostly stick to this TBR. Are you participating in this readathon? If so, who is your godly parent and what will you be reading?

Hello, lovelies! I’m here today to share how I did on the OWLs this year! The magical readathon is one of my favorite readathon’s every year. G, our hostess, puts so much thought and effort into this event and I’m so grateful to her for giving the world this fun and fabulous reading event. So, this year I was aiming for the career of “Trader of Magical Tomes” which required the completion of four specific OWLs. I managed to complete those and more.

Amanda’s O.W.L.’s Readathon TBR List

Hey, lovelies! I’ve been trying to chill out with the readathons this year and I think I’ve done pretty well. I’ve participated (low key without posting anything) in a few but nothing too crazy. I’m feeling like I’m heading into a reading slump so I thought the OWLs would be a good way to keep me motivated. If you’re interested here’s the link to G’s announcement video which is where you can find all the details and links.

For the 2020 OWLs, I’ve decided to go with the career of “Trader or Magical Tomes” because doesn’t that just sound wicked cool? The description for this career that G has created literally starts off “Have books always been your one true love?” Like yes, sign me the hell up. I have to pass four OWLs to succeed in this readathon. I’ll explain which four and what their prompts are below, as well as what books I’ll be reading for each subject.

These are the books I’m (loosely) planning to read for the OWLs, but if you’ve been here before you know that I don’t usually stick to my TBR lists. We shall see how it goes this month since it is a smaller TBR. I might even try to manage some of the other prompts if I finish these ones.

What are you going to be reading in April? Let me know 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.

IMG_0163

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.

IMG_0393Prompts:

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
