RYBSAT Round 9 || TBR Pile

Read Your Bookshelf A Thon is back for round 9! I’m so excited about this as this is one of my favourite read-a-thons that comes around. It’s such a wonderful, fun and interactive read-a-thon that I think everyone has got to try at least once! I particularly love how involved you can get on Twitter with the reading sprints.

If you don’t know what RYBSAT is, it’s a read-a-thon hosted by Miranda @ BooKss101 over on YouTube. Be sure to head over to her announcement video for this round to see what she’s reading, hear who the hosts are, and become acquainted with the rules. Continue reading

RYBSAT #7 Wrap-Up!

The week has finally come to a close and RYBSAT is over. This was the first year that I participated in the read-a-thon and oh my goodness I LOVED IT. It was so much fun! There was constant support and activities happening over on Twitter which just made the whole experience ten times more enjoyable. I didn’t think that ‘reading sprints’ would actually be that helpful in the beginning, but I’ve since learnt and discovered that they are ridiculously fun and I do read faster when I’m doing one.


For those of you that may not know what RYBSAT is, it’s the Read-Your-BookShelf-A-Thon hosted by Miranda over @ BooKss101. It’s great fun and anyone can do it! You pick a point on your bookshelf and then you read all the books consecutively from that point and you read as much as you can.

I set myself a goal for this round to read three books and had a fourth one lined up just in case. You can read all about that in THIS post. I didn’t actually think I would come close to my goal but guess what guys, I READ ALL FOUR!


I’m so proud of myself, I don’t think I’ve ever read so much in my life. How exciting!! Obviously, it’s all thanks to the amazing books that I picked out and thoroughly enjoyed. So, let’s get on to the wrap-up!

Woo! More read-a-thons! Tomorrow the Read-Your-Bookshelf-A-Thon commences, so that’s the 19th January 2016, and I am going to participate. RYBSAT is hosted by Miranda over at BooKss101 and you can watch the official announcement video HERE. I thought I’d borrow Miranda’s thumbnail for round seven because it’s an adorable photo and makes it look as fun as the marathon is! The hashtag is #RYBSAT for anyone wanting to follow or participate on Twitter.

What do you have to do?

Well it’s quite simple, really. You pick a point on your bookshelf and read that book and each consecutive book next to it on the bookshelf. The aim is to read as many books as you can during the week. So no stress on the amount of books or type of books you just have to read from one point onwards on your bookshelf.

There is one exception (I believe) and is if you get to a book series you’re allowed to either read all of the books, or just pick one and move on to the next book in line. So without further ado, let’s take a peek at my TBR!
