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)
Read at least one of my ARCs (July 31 – Sometimes a Rouge)
Read at least one book on my TBR list that isn’t an ARC (Aug 2 – Meant to Be)
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)
Started: Sometimes a Rogue by Mary Jo Putney (ARC) – 45% Kindle
Continued reading: Sometimes a Rogue – 88% Kindle
Finished Sometimes a Rogue! Time to pick the next book~
Started Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill
Finished Meant to Be! Will classify this one as TBR that’s not an ARC.
Half way through the readathon, about half way through the list! On track! Partah~
Was a bum and didn’t read anything for the readathon. Oops.
Started The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
Finished The Distance Between Us! woot. /free-for-all book. Now to read A Clash of Kings… 8|
