Jumpstart January Read-a-thon TBR Announcement! | Round One

I’ve decided to do a thing. If you’ve been paying attention (I might quiz you at the end of the year so best take notes) I’ve signed a contract with myself to participate in one read-a-thon per month in 2018. A tall order? Most certainly – oh okay, no probably not, but shush and let me be dramatic. Except I couldn’t find any read-a-thons I fancied. So here we are, this is me, making a brand spanking new read-a-thon for you all to enjoy. Continue reading

Wowee. I could not put this book down. I began reading at dawn and finished at dusk with a crazed look on my face. Soo many deaths. So much awesome. BRING ON BOOK TWO.

Rainbowthon #2!

I have just made a spur of the moment decision – I am going to participate in the Rainbowthon! In January I participated in two read-a-thons and have discovered that I really enjoy them ESPECIALLY when you get to make a rainbow TBR. What more could I ask for in life?


The Rainbowthon is a week-long challenge where you have to read books according to the colours of the rainbow. The aim is to read at least 4 books but ultimately to tick off every colour of the rainbow. For the sake of our wee confused brains indigo has been excluded from the rainbow, *pats indigo’s shoulder*, because if you actually know exactly what colour that is then you’re just about the only person. So thank goodness for that!

The hashtag is: #Rainbowthon

The hosts for the event are:

The read-a-thon is running from the 7th February to the 14th February. Continue reading
