Polarthon – A polar fantasy themed winter readathon hosted by @jadeyraereads on Twitter or visit her YouTube channel for the announcement. The readathon runs from August 1st (today) to August 31st.
For all the info, you can also follow @polarthon
There’s a fundraiser this year, too, set up through Justgiving.com.
Yes, it’s not winter, but y’all know I love polar bears and when I found out about this readathon, I knew I had to participate. If you want to know the rules, visit the Twitter links above.
I’ll be donating at the end of the month or maybe at the end of each week, depending on how much I’ve read. There’s a tracker for this readathon… one virtual fish for every 100 pages read. I’ll be donating based on the fish I collect.
The other reason I’m doing this is because I’m behind on my reading. I joined the Goodreads Reading Challenge and set out to read 52 books this year and I’m about 5 books behind, so, my personal reading day today should get me close to caught up and back on track, and the readathon should help me get a little ahead.
So, what am I planning to read today…
Gallant (finish) by V. E. Schwab
Heartstopper by Alice Oseman
The 12 Week Year by Brian P. Moran and Michael Lennington
And either Sinner’s Playground (The Harlequin Crew Book 1) by Caroline Peckham and Susanne Valenti or Traitor (Loxley Prep Book 1) by Hattie Jude or Mine (Blood Ties Book 1) by A. K. Rose
I had best get started. I need food, coffee, and to settle in with my books. One day, I’d like to be brave enough to do a reading vlog…
Anyway, y’all have a great Monday and if you’re reading today, what are you reading?
