A Little Bit of Motivation…

untitled (37)

After posting such a huge TBR pile for October I decided that I might need a little help along the way. So with that in mind I went looking for a Read-A- Thon to give me that extra push in the right direction.

Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon

The Wonderfully Wicked Read- A – Thon will be taking place between the 17th and the 27th of October and focuses on reducing that ever-growing TBR pile. During the read-a-thon there will also be twitter discussions and competitions, however the dates for these will be released closer to the time. As it is closer to Halloween I will probably leave some of my more mysterious books with eerie plots until the week of the read-a-thon, because who doesn’t love suspense around the spookiest time of the year.

Dewey’s Read-A- Thon

So Dewey’s Read- A-Thon is a 24 hour event with the rules to read read read for 24 hours straight. It will take place on the 18th of October, just at the beginning of the Wonderfully Wicked Read-A-Thon which will give me even more of an incentive to read.

I have never taken part in a 24 hour read-a-thon so it will be great fun, nothing beats staying up late to read. I think it will be difficult to fight past the exhaustion but I can’t wait to try, I’ll need to keep the kettle going for endless cups of coffee.

If anyone is interested in these read-a-thon’s just click on the titles to visit their page. I can’t wait to get started on my TBR for this month; it is unusually bigger than previous months so I’m going to need to try really hard to get through it. If anyone knows of any other read-a-thons coming up, please leave a comment below, other than that Good Luck Readers!

    Good luck on your goals! We’re excited to have you for the Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon! I haven’t decided if I’ll participate in Dewey’s or not.. but I need all the motivation I can get being that I’ve been in a huge reading slump lately, so I might go for it! 😀

    Hope you have a blast with us! And thanks for spreading the word 🙂
