I hope you all had a very productive July and enjoyed the Reading Rush readathon! The Reading Rush, formerly Booktube-a-thon, is by far one of my favorite read-a-thons. I love how big the reading community is, how many events happen in just one week and the need to push myself to read just a little bit more to complete all the challenges!
This one week of intensive reading got me out of the reading slump and made me excited again about picking up new books. So my August goals might seem too ambitious but I’m going to try and read as much as I can.
1 – Participate in the NEWTs (Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Test) Magical Readathon, hosted by BookRoast.
According to the rules of this read-a-thon, you need to read the books in order of their grades. So if you wish to get an O in a particular subject, you must read the books for “E” and “A” first. So I just spent 15 minutes trying to see if I can read the second book in the Grisha trilogy before reading the book I chose for the “A” grade… The problem is I don’t own the hardcover of «Siege and Storm» so I don’t know if it’s black under the dust jacket. If you do own a copy, please let me know! 😀
2 – Continue reading ARCs during the ARC August!
I managed to read 6 ARCs last month and most of them were amazing! Especially «Three Ways to Disappear» by Katy Yocom! So I want to continue working on my NetGalley queue and knock off some more ARCs off the list. These are the ARCs I might read this month:
3 – Join the NetGalley #Reviewathon
And try to post as many reviews as possible. My NetGalley ratio is at 84%, and anything above 80 is good for me. So I want to keep it this way, especially if I’ll request more ARCs in the future.
4 – Continue 20 Books of Summer challenge!
This challenge consists of reading AND reviewing 20 books during the summer. The last day is September 3rd. I’m actually doing great so far. I read 18 / 20 books and reviewed 15 / 20 books. Not all reviews will be posted on my blog, the shorter ones will remain on my GoodReads page.
