First of all I am taking part in two Hooked On Books read-a-thons this month: the week-a-thon and the 24hr-a-thon.
Hooked on Books doesn’t set themes for their read-a-thons but I like to have challenges.
2nd-9th: I have 2 goals for this read-a-thon.
1. To read 1 contemporary.
2. To read books on my Kindle (this one should be easy as I am taking my kindle with me to the UK where I will be during the entirety of the read-a-thon and only 1 or 2 actual books.
24HR Read-a-thon: I have one goal.
1. To increase my percentage in The Original Folk and Fairy Tales by Brothers Grimm by 20 percent. (It doesn’t seem like much but I am only 22 percent through and I have been reading it for about a month now.
Of course, I am also still doing the Hooked on Books Summer Read-a-thon and I want to read some more of my summer got-to-read books.
Now, for read-a-longs. I like these more than Read-a-thons as you don’t have to constantly update goodreads in a short period of time. I am taking part in both of the read-a-longs happening in the two groups I am a member of (Little Book Club and Perustopia).
Little Book Club: Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson is the book of the month for July/August. I have not yet started the book as I got it halfway through July (this month) and haven’t gotten the chance to pick it up yet.
Perustopia: Rook by Sharon Cameron is the book of the month for August. I do not yet own this book. I go back to school late in the month (half way through the third book) and I want this book before then so I am going to get my dad to let me place my book orders for the month earlier so that I can read this book this month (it is already in my basket on Book Depository).
Now for my TBR:
What books are you wanting to read in August? Let me know!
