July 2018 #24in48 Readathon Sign-Up and TBR List

It’s time for another #24in48 Readathon! I had a lot of fun participating in the Readathon back in January, and am looking forward to getting involved again this weekend.

If you’re new to 24in48, this is the basic gist: beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, participants read for 24 hours out of that 48-hour period. You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, four hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six four-hour sessions with four hour breaks in between, whatever you’d like.

This round of #24in48 will take place from July 21-July 22. Here are the books I’m planning to choose from:

Top Ten Tuesday: Summer Reads on my TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme created by The Broke and the Bookish blog, and now hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl.

Last year, I put together a TTT Beach Reads list. This week, I decided to look through my books to find Summer Reads on my TBR List. These are NOT books I’m planning to read this summer – those can be found on my 20 Books of Summer list – but are instead the unread books I own that I think would make for great summer reading.

20 Books of Summer 2018

Now that Memorial Day Weekend has come and gone, I think we can all agree that summer has unofficially begun. I’m looking forward to the longer days, the warm temperatures, the fresh produce, time spent at the pool, and of course summer reading. I’m especially excited to be participating in Cathy of 746 Books 20 Books of Summer for the second year in a row.

Last year I managed to read 15 books, although I didn’t get started until a week or two after the kick off date. Hopefully this means my total this year will be even higher, but since a lot of the books on my list are pretty chunky, I’m not going to be too hard on myself if I don’t make it through all 20 books.

Bout of Books 20

Today marks the first day of Bout of Books 20:

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 21st and runs through Sunday, August 27th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 20 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. – From the Bout of Books team

I thought this laid back readathon would be the perfect motivation for me to make major progress on both my Austen in August and my 15 Books of Summer TBR lists.

Here are the books I’ll be reading from this week: Continue reading “Bout of Books 20”
