Ze Rules!

  • The Beat the Heat Readathon runs from July 29th through August 18th. What does this readathon entail, you ask? Well, read as much or as little as you want – the main point is to READ! You set your own goal, and for two weeks you read as many books as you can/want to reach your goal!
  • There will be mini-challenges throughout the Readathon for participants, along with a grand prize giveaway at the end!
  • Sign up at Auntie Spinelli Reads or Phantasmic Reads. You may join whenever you like, but to be eligible for our grand prize giveaway, you must sign up by August 5th.
  • To join, all you have to do is make a sign-up post – even if it’s just a “Let’s do this!” thing – and add your post URL to the linky below! You can put your goals and progress (will be required for the final giveaway) in your sign-up post, or you can make it separate. Totally up to you! Feel free to copy and paste this handy little list for your post. We don’t mind. :)

Feelings After Week One:
Well I knew this week was a busy one for me and that I wasn’t going to have a ton of time to read. I guess I’m happy with where I’m at but I hope to read a lot more in the second week!

Feelings After Week Two:
Well I didn’t reach my goal of 7 books or 3000 pages but with the extension I might be able to reach my goals. Glad there is another week of the fun left. Although I do have to go back to my clinical rotation at the hospital this coming week so I don’t know how much reading I will get done with school and clinical hours starting back up.

  1. Aleksandra @ Aleksandra's Corner

    Happy reading! And great list of books 🙂 I’ve read 4 of these, and I loved Scarlet & Full Blooded, I also enjoyed Beautiful Darkness & the Tessa Dare book, although it was my least fav in the trilogy. I hope you’ll reach your goals!

  2. Leanne @ Literary Excursion

    Scarlet is the only one on your list I’ve read, but I have Pivot Point and the audiobook for The Raven Boys in my collection. Thank goodness your list looks much more manageable than mine!

  3. Ange

    Good luck with your goal! You have chosen some awesome books to read. I just finished reading the Elite and loved it. Pivot Point is also one of my favourite reads of 2013. Happy Reading!!!

  4. Lauren @ Lose Time Reading

    OMG I love your toread list! Pivot Point was amazing(I see you’ve already completed it too!!)!! The only other one I have read is Scarlet, which was very good as well. I started Beautiful Darkness in June but had to put it down because of my towering library and review stack and haven’t picked it back up 🙁 I also wanted to start reading If He Had Been With Me but I decided to put it aside until after summer, I feel like it will make me cry too much lol. Good luck with your goals 🙂 Happy Reading!!

    P.S. I love your font in the commenting box, gosh… it’s just so freakin pretty I feel like I could ramble on forever just to see it, lol.
