Readathin Announcement! | February 2021

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. Today we’re announcing the first round of Readathin for 2021!!! And we are super excited about it!

This is a readathon that I co-host with my friend Donna from Mom’s Book Collection and the goal of the readathon is to read books you own. Thin your TBR! This can be physical books on your shelves, books on your ereader, or audiobooks you’ve purchased.

So, while there are reading challenges, you don’t necessarily need to follow them. As long as your reading owned books, you’re reading for Readathin. And don’t feel like EVERY book you read during the month has to be for Readathin.

There is also a photo challenge that goes along with the reading challenges, so make sure you’re posting those photos on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #ReadathinPhotoFeb21

Let’s get into these challenges!

NewYearsathon 2021 Announcement

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. I’m getting over being sick right now but I really wanted to get this post up for you all so that you can get the information on time.

If you don’t know what NewYearsathon is, it’s a readathon I host with Donna from Mom’s Book Collection. The whole goal of the readathon is to just start out the year with some reading.

ARCathon Announcement | Round 2

Good morning everyone! I’m back again with another announcement.

Stacked by Season Wrap Up

Good evening everyone. I haven’t been around in a bit. I’m sorry! I’ve been busy doing the reading thing! I know! It’s shocking.

If you don’t know what Stacked by Season is, it’s a readathon that I co-host with the amazing Melissa at TheWrittenAdventure. The goal is to read for 24 hours over the course of 4 days. Fine and dandy, right? Easy peasy.

Nope! I haven’t hit the 24 in the several months that we’ve been hosting this. We do it every month over the course of a weekend (Thursday to Sunday). I’m really excited for when I’m out of school because Thursdays and Sundays are usually homework days for me.

The next one will be in March, so make sure you all are following the Instagram so you can stay up to date for when the next one is!

Readathin Announcement! | Round 11

Hey everyone! How are you all doing? I hope you’re doing well. It’s time to share the challenges for the February 2020 round of Readathin!

So, for those of you that don’t know, things have changed up a bit for Readathin this round and for further notice. I’m, obviously, still hosting Readathin, but joining me this round is Donna from @MomsBookCollection 😁

I’m so excited to be hosting this with her. We host another readathon together that is only held once a year so I’m excited the two of us will be working on this together.

Donna has been around since the beginning and has supported this readathon so much. We have some fun things coming this round!


Readathin is a month long readathon that is held in February, May, August, and November every year. I’ve been doing this for a couple years and its had its ups and downs, but we’re here in 2020 with some nice changes and hopefully Readathin will continue to grow.

The goal for Readathin is to “thin” out your TBRs. The idea sprouted when I was replying to a tweet one day and accidentally typed readathin instead of readathon. Then I made a joke about a readathon and thus Readathin started.

While you can read any books you have on your TBR, the main purpose of the readathon is to read books from your physical TBR (or eTBR since we all know those can get out of hand as well).

During February your goal is to read as many books that you already own as you can! Obviously, don’t force yourself to read more than you’re comfortable with. Take the time to enjoy the books, but also make sure you’re working on your physical TBR.


Readathin has taken the plunge and has joined Instagram! We figured that since we have a photo challenge, it would be more organized to have an Instagram where we can share news and any photos that you all share.

We also have a Twitter, but I will be the first to admit I suck at keeping up with Twitter. So there’s a high likelihood that the Twitter will slowly trickle out. But for now, it’s still there and still going!


Now, onto the thing you all actually care about. The challenges!

There are more challenges than normal, but I want to emphasis that you DON’T HAVE TO DO THEM ALL. Don’t feel overwhelmed. You don’t have to do any of the challenges if you don’t want to.

Feel free to save this template and use it in your Instagram stories to keep track of the challenges you’ve completed.

And here’s the photo challenge!

Feel free to save and share these! If you have any questions on any of these challenges, don’t hesitate to ask! Send one of the hosts a message or one on the Readathin Instagram.

I really hope that you all can join us! It’s going to be a fun time!

Thanks for joining me! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Stop whatever you’re doing and find a mirror or even use the front camera on your phone.

Out loud, tell yourself 5 positive things about yourself. Talk like you’re best friend is having a bad day and you’re trying to make them feel better.

Because you should be your own best friend. You should be the best friend that empowers. Be your own best friend. Be your own rock. You are stuck with you, so accept your flaws and love yourself for them.

See you all soon! Bye!

SelfLoveathon TBR | Round 1

Good morning everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful morning and enjoyed your weekend. I know that I haven’t really been around and I’m sorry. I did post a video on my YouTube, which I will have in this post if you want to watch.

So, completely out there, but I was looking at careers I should pursue as an INFJ and I feel like some of them fit, but others are ones I would like to avoid.

So, I’m curious, what’s your Meyers-Briggs and are you in a career (or working toward one) that is suggested based on it?

Now, onto the real talk of this post.

Check out the announcement here. It’s not too late to join.

Internet Famous

High school senior and internet sensation Madison Nakama seems to have it all: a happy family, good grades, and a massive online following for her pop-culture blog. But when her mother suddenly abandons the family, Madi finds herself struggling to keep up with all of her commitments.

Fandom to the rescue! As her online fans band together to help, an online/offline flirtation sparks with Laurent, a French exchange student. Their internet romance—played out in the comments section of her MadLibs blog—attracts the attention of an internet troll who threatens the separation of Madi’s real and online personas. With her carefully constructed life unraveling, Madi must uncover the hacker’s identity before he can do any more damage, or risk losing the people she loves the most… Laurent included.


Everything Leads to You

A love letter to the craft and romance of film and fate in front of—and behind—the camera from the award-winning author of Hold Still.

A wunderkind young set designer, Emi has already started to find her way in the competitive Hollywood film world.

Emi is a film buff and a true romantic, but her real-life relationships are a mess. She has desperately gone back to the same girl too many times to mention. But then a mysterious letter from a silver screen legend leads Emi to Ava. Ava is unlike anyone Emi has ever met. She has a tumultuous, not-so-glamorous past, and lives an unconventional life. She’s enigmatic…. She’s beautiful. And she is about to expand Emi’s understanding of family, acceptance, and true romance.


Ramona Blue

Ramona was only five years old when Hurricane Katrina changed her life forever.

Since then, it’s been Ramona and her family against the world. Standing over six feet tall with unmistakable blue hair, Ramona is sure of three things: she likes girls, she’s fiercely devoted to her family, and she knows she’s destined for something bigger than the trailer she calls home in Eulogy, Mississippi. But juggling multiple jobs, her flaky mom, and her well-meaning but ineffectual dad forces her to be the adult of the family. Now, with her sister, Hattie, pregnant, responsibility weighs more heavily than ever.

The return of her childhood friend Freddie brings a welcome distraction. Ramona’s friendship with the former competitive swimmer picks up exactly where it left off, and soon he’s talked her into joining him for laps at the pool. But as Ramona falls in love with swimming, her feelings for Freddie begin to shift too, which is the last thing she expected. With her growing affection for Freddie making her question her sexual identity, Ramona begins to wonder if perhaps she likes girls and guys or if this new attraction is just a fluke. Either way, Ramona will discover that, for her, life and love are more fluid than they seem.


Adorkable

Adorkable (ah-dor-kuh-bul): Descriptive term meaning to be equal parts dorky and adorable. For reference, see Sally Spitz.

Seventeen-year-old Sally Spitz is done with dating. Or at least, she’s done with the horrible blind dates/hookups/sneak attacks her matchmaking bestie, Hooker, sets her up on. There’s only so much one geek girl and Gryffindor supporter can take.

Her solution: she needs a fake boyfriend. And fast.

Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around-hottie, and Sally’s best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F. (fake boyfriend), Becks is only too happy to be used. He’d do anything for Sal–even if that means giving her PDA lessons in his bedroom, saying she’s “more than pretty,” and expertly kissing her at parties.

The problem: Sally’s been in love with Becks all her life–and he’s completely clueless.

This book features two best friends, one special edition Yoda snuggie, countless beneath-the-ear kisses and begs the question:

Who wants a real boyfriend when faking it is so much more fun?


Thanks so much for joining me and I’ll definitely see you all soon.

Don’t stress over anything you don’t have control over. I know easier said than done…
