October Wrap Up & November TBR

October Wrap Up

It’s been almost a year since I posted a monthly wrap up. I’ve read a lot of books this year, and already met my Goodreads goal this month, but I’ve been so bad about blogging regularly. I haven’t had the passion for it, and I didn’t want to force myself when I wasn’t feeling up to it.  But I had a fantastic reading month and wanted to share the books with you all. I’m hoping to start posting more regularly again, even if I end up throwing in some non-bookish posts in here and there, like what music I’ve been into lately. I’m participating in quite a few readathons this month, so many that it covers virtually the entire month, so we’ll see if I stick to my big TBR or not!

Readathon Wrap Up: Bookish Bingo & TBR Takedown 3.5

I took part in two readathons last week, and had an AMAZING reading week.  Here was my TBR for the week if you missed it. I read seven books in total, three towards my Bookish Bingo challenges, and four for the TBR Takedown challenges.

TBR: Bookish Bingo & #TBRTakedown 3.5 Readathons


On Monday I announced that I’d be participating in the Bookish Bingo Readathon and #TBRTakedown 3.5 Readathon. The Bookish Bingo Readathon started today, and the first mini challenge is to show off your TBR.

My TBR is pretty large since I’m participating in two readathons at once.

Bookish Bingo & #TBRTakedown 3.5 Readathons

bookish bingospring-bingo readathon

Time for another readathon (or two)! This is my second round participating in Bookish Bingo, and I’m excited to join in for the first readathon based around the challenge.  The bingo card above shows the squares I’ve already completed so far this month. I will be attempting to read as many books as possible throughout the week to cover the remaining squares.

The readathon will start at 12am on April 3rd, and run the entire week, ending at 11:59pm on April 9th.

The Bookish Bingo Readathon is all about reading books that fit into the squares of the Spring Bingo card. You don’t have to make a bingo or anything, just make sure the books you read for the readathon match up on the card. This is all about getting a good chunk of your card covered!

If you are interested in participating, you can read more details and sign up on the announcement post HERE.

The next #TBRTakedown readathon is also taking place towards the end of the same week, from April 8-10.  I love this readathon so I’m going to attempt to participate in both.  This readathon mostly takes place on Twitter, so if you’re interested in participating, be sure to follow the official twitter account @TBRTakedown.

#TBRTakedown has four challenges to complete over the three days:

1. Standalone
2. Most Recent Haul
3. Catch Up in a Series
4. TBR Shelf Over a Year (or the longest)

I’m hoping to make the challenges fit into bingo squares for Bookish Bingo so that I’m knocking out two things at once 🙂 If I post a TBR for the readathons it’ll be later in the week because I’m a big mood reader, and also because what I read next week is going to be dependent on the books I manage to complete from my TBR this week.
