As someone who is afraid of space and traveling in general, it’s hilarious that I am trying to participate in this readathon. It is called Tome Infinity and Beyond, and it going to be fascinating to trek through the challenges. I first heard of it on the I Don’t Have a Degree in Reading channel.
Happy September to my peeps! After attempting to squish my library books and TBR into different challenges for this week, I settled on the Randomathon. As usual, yours truly may have to go rogue. This series of challenges are set for readers to apply their TBRs from September 3rd to the 16th. You can check Randomathon’s Twitter right here.
Read a sci-fi book
From what I have researched, the Shatter Me series is considered sci-fi. Luckily for me, I have picked Restore Me from the library a few days ago. I am worried that Tahereh Mafi is going to torture the characters in this installment. Funnily enough, I didn’t read any spoilers. For those of you who don’t know, I actually find spoilers to be a good way of reducing anxiety induced by the reading experience.
All I know is that someone shaves their head.

As erratic as my reading has been, I am still attempting to get some allotted reading space in my schedule. The good news is that last week was actually a decent week in terms of wrapping up books. I am hopeful! Here is the list of all the NEWTs’ Challenges.

The NEWTs readathon has been steadily creeping the bookish web for the past month. As my mental health teetered into unstable-land, I had attempted to participate in the initial readathon, a prequel if you will, to the NEWTs one. It was called OWLs and I totally failed. However, I want to give this readathon a shot.
Here are the challenges I want to try out this week.
My first round of booktubeathon went so poorly that I am in need of trying again. Many of the books I had chosen were duds. This collided with a lot of personal issues (not mental health related only). Yes, stuff still is up in the air, but I am hoping I choose nicer stuff for this booktubeathon. *Okay, maybe they’re not “nicer” but perhaps they’re more engaging to read.

My awesome friend Ely along with the fabulous Val created this readathon. It runs from August 6 to the 13th. Basically, it involves listing books and then you vote on which ones I should read. (No pressure, but my future week is in your hands). I like the description these two ladies used, so I am going to pop it over here.

I had to do this. Breaking the rules was necessary because there are no cool readathons going on this week (or the next few weeks, for that matter). By “cool,” I just mean readathons that speak to me in a way that makes sense. Needless to say, I am stealing the prompts of the O.W.Ls to guide me.
(A joke bubbled through my throat and fizzled into nothing. You missed it. It was good, too. Let’s carry on).

For week 2 of July 2018, I am combining all kinds of readathons to see what will feel good at that moment. Honestly, if I can read anything, I’d be content.
Tom Topple has started a few days ago. A readathon created by the glorious Sam from Thoughts on Tomes, this event is about reading big books. It is an opportunity to tackle intimidating stories. Naturally, I am breaking rules left and right. You know how unrealistic my reading expectations are.

In an effort to tackle my huge pile of unread books, I am trying to change things up by reading older books. Sci-fi old hits are going to be what I try to incorporate into my reading plans over the summer.
Encouraged by Fellow-Readers
If you have not met La La, you’re missing out. She’s a cool blogger and a musician, bad-ass mom, and all-around awesome person. La La mentioned the Scifi Summer of 2018 in her post here.
I am going to try to weave in some sci-fi throughout the summer (I hope). I have a couple of series that I’d like to delve into (and finish).
