The Reading Rush 2020: In Review

The Reading Rush 2020: In Review

As I announced a couple weeks ago, despite knowing how busy I am, I decided I needed to participate in The Reading Rush again this summer because I had a lot of fun with it last year and … well?  I just wanted to.  And I’m glad I did, because even though I knew it would be a lot when doubled with my studying and work being busy but… you know?  Sometimes you gotta treat yourself. And I’m glad I did because this is my only major readathon this year (Start On Your Shelfathon is more of a reading challenge) and […]

My Very Ill-Advised But I’m-Doing-The-Readathon-Anyway READING RUSH 2020 TBR!

Hey everyone! I have been so, so light on readathons this year because of EVERYTHING but also because of my limited ability to read frantically due to other responsibilities.  That said, I really still wanted to join in on the Reading Rush because I had a blast with this readathon last year.  So here we are! This is, for the record, the absolute worst time for me to be doing a readathon.  It falls the week before my FINRA 99 exam and I honestly should be hitting the books hard.  With this in mind, I’ve tried to compromise a bit between having […]

Our Own 24-in-48 Readathon Wrap Up

Posted March 16, 2020 in Readthons & Reading Challenges // 0 Comments

Impulsively Saturday morning, I decided to participate in a readathon. Honestly, my relationship with most readathons is exactly this – I see it a little after the readathon starts and decide “that sounds like a good plan”.  I do this with NaNoWriMo, too.  It’s… not always a good plan. In doing my morningly Instagram scroll, I stumbled across this post:   View this post on Instagram   Because the official #24in48 readathon in January was cancelled, @inge.isreading, @jenniferdewolf and I planned our own for this weekend. Feel free to join us! We have no challenges or prizes, and no official […]

For those who have been following this blog for a while, you may have seen the below image on some of my book reviews: Since 2017, I’ve been struggling to hold myself accountable and make sure I am reading the books that are physically on my shelf.  In an adorable, half-hearted attempt to hold myself accountable, I created The Great Bookcase Crusade, which was my noble attempt to read the books I own and gut out the ones that I don’t love anymore. This was a good idea, don’t get me wrong.  It has helped me focus a bit more on […]

In Which I Do Not Read Books:  Off-the-Grid Readathon V Review

In Which I Do Not Read Books: Off-the-Grid Readathon V Review

Posted October 25, 2019 in Readthons & Reading Challenges // 2 Comments

Hey guys! Last weekend, I participated in the fifth Off-The-Grid Readathon!  If y’all’ve been around the block a while, you know that I’ve been participating in this one every time it comes up, usually with a lot of success (back in January, I got through six books!).  For me, this is a super fun one because there’s no goals and no requirements – really, the point of it is just to get off social media for a minute and read. And I am the worst when it comes to picking up my phone in the middle of a chapter, because I’m bored […]
