Not such a good start | #BoutOfBooks18

    I was supposed to be taking part in #BoutofBooks18 this week, and despite the week not being over yet, I’m afraid to say I’ve failed myself. I realise this read-a-thon is a no pressure thing, but I rather think I signed up prematurely. As in, I thought I could do it, but I can’t. I didn’t make a TBR for it, because I didn’t want to tie myself down to anything. However, I had been classing my reread of Harry Potter as part […]




#boutofbooks 17 | midweek update

Posted 25 August, 2016 by katheryn13 in Readathons, Updates, YA / 0 Comments

Hello everyone. So this week 22nd to 28th August I’m participating in the #boutofbooks 17 readathon challenge. It’s now half way and I just wanted to let you know my progress so far.  On Monday/Tuesday I read:  12 chapter sampler of The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead. That is 148pages. On Tuesday (once I finished the previous, obv) and Wednesday: I began The Crown by Kiera Cass.   113 pages read over those days.  So that’s it for now. It’s currently Thursday, but the day […]

Re-Readathon time!

Yooooo so I wasn’t intending on doing this, but since I’m in a reading slump, rereading stuff might be a good idea. (click image to go to original post announcement) It starts tomorrow. Anyone else in? Here’s the schedule for challenges, etc.  -Kat Please follow and like us:0

Deweys 24hr #Readathon | The Verdict

Deweys 24hr #Readathon | The Verdict

Okay, guys. Okay. It happened! I did the 24hr readathon and…promptly got defeated. I fell asleep at 10.30pm. Yeah. I managed to read a total of..250 pages. It was a 500 page book, so…yeah. But I’d started at page 49, so that gave me a head start.  I honestly feel so ashamed. I can’t believe the people that have read five or six books in 24hrs, though. That’s insane! I wish I had that ability to speed read.  Anyway, I just thought I’d tell you […]


I’m doing the…Dewey’s 24hr Readathon April 2016

I’m doing the…Dewey’s 24hr Readathon April 2016

Are you? I’ve not done a readathon in ages (and I can’t exactly say the TBRtakedown was a success), but now, in the middle of all the writing I’m SUPPOSED to be doing before I go away, I’ve decided I’m going to take one day out to READ. Not that I haven’t been reading all this time, because I have been. Even if it’s just a couple hours here and there, I manage it. But I’ve been so disconnected with books lately, what with me […]
