No excuse. I was not busy, no plans, no school, nothing really.
I just did not post because I lacked the drive as well as the creativity to do so.
While I have not been active on my blog a lot recently, I have been doing other things namely fitness-related stuff and Twitter which you should totally follow me on by the way so that we could connect more and become besties.
It might be accurate to say that my laziness in updating and my recent Twitter obsession are the reasons that my reading has escalated to a maximum. Seriously, I spend more time in books than out of them. Why? 'Cus READATHONS! I was so indifferent to them before Twitter, they just weren't my scene, man but NOW, they make me so happy because I get to challenge myself, meet really cool bloggers and READ MORE.
Between the months of July and August, there'll be four readathons (at least the ones that I'm aware of) happening back to back to back to back; #CRAMATHON, Casual Readathon J2, TBR Takedown 2.0 and BOOKTUBEATHON. If you know of any more, please let me know! #CRAMATHON has already passed so I'm going to give the gist of how I did and Casual Readathon J2 will have already started the day that this is uploaded so I'll just let you know what I plan to read.
#CRAMATHON took place from July 11th @ 12:00 AM - July 13th @ 11:59 P.M and was hosted by Whitney from WhittyNovels on YouTube. Basically, it is a 3-day readathon, during which time we try to read as many short books as possible in order to meet our Goodreads challenges. Of course, there were a couple of reading challenges:
1. Read a children’s book
2. Read a hardback
3. Read 2 books in 24 hours
4. Read a graphic novel
6. Read a novella
7. Read 5 books total
Casual Readathon J2 will be held from July 15th @ 12:00 A.M to July 22nd at 11:59 P.M and is hosted by Bookameggle (https://www.youtube.com/user/BookaMeggle) and yes, there are challenges:
1)Read 3 books.
2)Read a sequel / ending to a series.
3)Read a contemporary.
4)Read a book with green on it.
5)Read a 2014+ release.
6)Read a summer / beach set book.
7)Read a movie / TV adaptation.
I know one of the challenges is to read 3 books but I am going to overachieve a little and try to read 5 books so...HERE WE GO!
That was my #CRAMATHON Wrap Up and my Casual Readathon J2 TBR. I hope you enjoyed reading it, feel free to comment down below and tell me if you are participating in any upcoming readathons and also what you will be reading. Until my next blog post, I love you guys...to infinity and beyond!
