January: It’s a Wrap

Well well guys, it’s no longer January (aka the longest month of the year, the month that never ends, the month that is made for us to be poor), which means it is time of the first wrap post of the year. January has previously been the month that I read hard in, where I shift through a huge stacks of books, and take part in a load of readathons. January 2018 has been a lot busier in my life than was initially expected, so I haven’t read quite as much as January’s gone by, but I took part in Bout of Books and the 24in48 Readathon and I also joined an awesome online book community of book bloggers and YA readers called Crone Bloggers.

Bout of Books 21: Day 7

They say all good things must come to an end, and I suppose a time without the bout of books gang makes you appreciate the readathon when it next comes around. Still, I’m gutted we’re on the final day. It’s been a blast, especially the Twitter chat yesterday! After the success of the sprints yesterday, I am going to be hosting some more using #boutofbooks at around 7pm GMT/2pm ET/11 am PT, so if you’re around and reading, why not join in!!

For all you eager beavers out there, Bout of Books 22 will be back between Monday 14th May and Sunday 20th May. In the meantime, keep an eye out for fun and laughter on the Facebook group, and look out for challenge hosting sign ups and expert applications in April!

Bout of Books 21: Day 6

Wahhhh, it’s the weekend, it’s the penultimate day of Bout of Books 21, and I don’t want it to end! I have pretty much no plans for today other than work, read, blog, and chat. It sounds great in some respects, but I think it’s going to be a weekend in front of a computer, being tired, and being indoors. We’ll see what the weekend brings, eh? What are you planning to do with yours?

There will be a Twitter Chat at 10am CST (TZCso if you’re up and about online, you should definitely take part. Make sure to follow @BoutofBooks and use #BoutofBooks when sharing posts on social media! I’m definitely going to be there, my work shift slide has timed it perfectly to be home and online!

Bout of Books 21: Day 5

Its already Friday. I just cant believe it. Where has this week gone? Its almost halfway through January already. Ahhhhh. I’ve actually had a pretty awesome week so far. I feel like I’m back on track with reading, I’ve made new friends and connected with old ones. I’ve enjoyed blogging and tweeting. I’ve just been having a good time. It’s a shame I have to work this weekend or I’d be able to get some serious reading done!! I did finish my second and third books yesterday, although I still haven’t done the challenge. It will go back and do it because it was a real good’un.

Bout of Books 21: Day 4

I hate this point in the readathon. It suddenly feels so much closer to the end than the beginning and it’s only just begun! How are you all getting on? How are you finding It? I’m pleased to say that it’s got me reading again!

Bout of Books 21: Day 3

Well I think it is safe to say that yesterday was a much more productive day than Monday. I finished A book, I listened to more of my audiobook and I really made some tracks with an e-ARC. I also decided to hold a couple of sprints. I saw a friend do it and decided that it would help me concentrate my own reading efforts, and hopefully help others too. I’ll probably hold some more later in the week and put my Expert tag to good use!!

Bout of Books 21: Day 2

And we’re off, we’re on the second day of the readathon already. Did you manage to get some reading done yesterday? Did you do the challenge? Did you manage to join in with the twitter chat? Sadly I missed it as I have a very early start today and needed my rest, and it fell at 2am for me! Don’t forget, today is the last day that you can sign up, so make sure you added your link here.
