RiverMoose’s ARC TBR Takedown Read-A-Thon – Sign-Ups

Original Read-A-Thon

RiverMoose’s ARC TBR Takedown Read-A-Thon

Sign-Ups –
May 14th – end of Read-A-Thon (July 31st) 2017

June 1st – July 31st

Read as many arc/review copies off your TBR as you can.

I’m starting this Read-A-Thon because I have an avalanche of arcs to get through (I have an over requesting on Netgalley problem) and I think it’ll motivate me.

I also really love participating in Read-A-Thons, its fun to motivate each other, but most Read-A-Thons are inconveniently timed for me – so I thought by making my own, it would fit my problem and my timing. I figured i’m not the only when, so I’m making a real Read-A-Thon.

-Each book that counts must be an arc or review copy sent to you by an author, publisher, bookstore or review site like Netgalley.

-Can be ebook or physical or audiobook.

-Any genre.

-Must be reviewed within the Read-A-Thon time frame (or, confirm review written and scheduled for release day).

-Everyone welcome to join.

-Non-review copy/arc reads will only count if you are COMPLETELY caught up on your arc/review copy TBR AND they are backlogged books (out a year +) (Also applies for those who want to participate but don’t have any ARCs).

-Leave a comment on this post to sign up – will edit with masterlist.

-NO REQUESTING NEW ARCS DURING THE READ-A-THON,  IT DEFEATS THE PURPOSE. I mean, if its one you’re dying for I guess I can’t stop you but seriously.

Book-Tube-A-Thon 2016: My TBR

This year, Book-Tube-A-Thon is from July 18 TO July 24. And I am joining!

I’ll probably fail all my challenges, because I’m bad with TBR’s and I am doing my summer homework these coming weeks (and writing, and cleaning, and all the other things I have to do), but I wanted to try. And I’m more motivated to try when I annouce it on my blog.

So, I’m going to stop the rambling and tell you my reading plans for each challenge.

The challenges this year are/The books I’ll read for each:

Read a book with yellow on the coverTrial of Apollo by Rick Riordan (this counts right?)

Read a book only after sunsetTimeLord Fairytales by Justin Richards (since this is short stories and I can read one or two each night, like a bedtime story)

Read a book you discovered through booktubeThe Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken (this one is a long time coming)

Read a book by one of your favourite authorsMagnus Chase And The Sword Of Summer by Rick Riordan (I really need to get to this…)

Read a book that’s older than youThe Caves Of Androzani by Terrance Dicks (I’ve been meaning to get to it AND its over a decade older than me)

Read and watch a book-to-movie adaptationStruck By Lightning by Chris Colfer (Been meaning to read this for a while + its the shortest book I have that has a movie adaptation I have access to)

Read seven books – I need a seventh book so I’ll say Captain America: Sub Rosa (because I have the e-arc from netgalley and the file only lasts 15 more days.)


So, what do you think of my TBR? Place your bets now as to whether or not I’ll stick to it, we all now I have a terrible track record with that.

Is anyone else doing Book-Tube-A-Thon? What are you reading? Let me know!
