Beat the Heat Readathon



The Beat the Heat Readathon runs from July 29th through August 11th and is hosted by the lovelies Jessi @ Auntie Spinelli Reads & Reanna @ Phantasmic Reads. What does this readathon entail, you ask? Well, read as much or as little as you want – the main point is to READ! You set your own goal, and for two weeks you read as many books as you can/want to reach your goal!

This readathon overlaps perfectly with my holiday time so I might as well attempt to get some of my TBR list down!


01. Read at least 100 pages of A Clash of Kings (because I only have ~250 pages left and I’ve been neglecting this book for far too long)

02. Read at least one of my ARCs  (July 31 – Sometimes a Rouge)

03. Read at least one book on my TBR list that isn’t an ARC (Aug 2 – Meant to Be)

04: Read one more of something! a TBR book, an ARC, or a brand new random pick! (Aug 6 – The Distance Between Us)


July 27: Getting prepared – puttin’ on my reading glasses (aka. my normal glasses, because I’m blind as a bat without them)

  1. Thanks for joining! Good luck with your goals 🙂

    1. I’m really excited! Thanks for hosting this (:

  2. It seems like everyone is reading one of the Game of Thrones books for the readathon. I think I might have to start this series since everyone is liking it.

    Happy reading!

    1. I’m really hoping this I will get me closer to finishing it haha. Game of Thrones was a very good read, if not totally crazy epic fanatasy 😉

  3. Your goals seem possible. I’m wondering now if I over did my goals … eek! I hope not! I’ve never done this before and just got so excited!

    1. This is my first time too! I just picked a few things because I didn’t know what I was doing either haha. I’m sure you’ll be fine! Good luck!

      1. Glad to know I’m not the only newbie! Good luck to you too! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  4. I really need to read a bunch of ARCs and this challenge will sure help. Hope you reach all your goals 🙂 Here’s my BTH post with my progress:
