The Psych Reading Challenge – Because Who Doesn’t Love Reading Challenges Based on Cancelled TV Shows That Just Won’t Die?

The Psych Reading Challenge – Because Who Doesn’t Love Reading Challenges Based on Cancelled TV Shows That Just Won’t Die?

After participating in the year-long reading challenge Start onYour Shelfathon in 2020, I knew I wanted to do at least one reading challenge in 2021 to help guide my reading.  I like the idea of reading challenges and that gamification aspect, especially how they make me look around and mix up my TBR and sometimes even search outside of it to meet challenges. So I figured I’d go find a really popular reading challenge like “Beat the Backlist” or something similar and join in. … But I know that you know… that I’m not telling the truth. (*cue music*) Okay no. […]

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 […]
