August Readathons!

Posted by Jessi (Geo) on August 2, 2015 | 4 Comments

*This post is replacing this week’s Heartbeat Weekly because I have no news to share and no new books this week!

HOLY CRAP you guys, there are so many readathons this month!! There’s ARC August going all month, #5books7days (Instagram) from the 10th to the 16th, Bout of Books from the 17th to the 23rd, and finally Beat the Heat from the 24th to Labor Day! Basically my August is going to be one giant readathon XD

I’m just going to combine them all in one post – except for Beat the Heat; I’ll do that separate since I’m hosting that one. (Look for the sign ups for that sometime later this week!) I’ll come back and update my progress directly on this post!

ARC August

Some review books I need to get to:

dreamland anderson Gambit denault hunter lackey kiss deception in the end fire wish

I decided to go with a mix of old and new – I chose 3 new ones, and 3 old ones. Hopefully I can get to more, though! I’ve got some that have been sitting on my shelf/eReader for months (some more than a year)… *hangs head in shame*

Books read:

  1. Gambit by C.L. Denault
  2. Hunter by Mercedes Lackey
  3. The Fire Wish by Amber Lough
  4. The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
  5. Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson
  6. Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
  7. The Kiss of Deception by Mary Peterson



This one is an Instagram challenge! It’s hosted by @lottelikesbooks, you can follow along with the hashtag #5books7days :)

I’m really excited for this one because it’s going to be a major cram. I managed to read 6 for the last one!


Books read:


  1. Hunter by Mercedes Lackey (finished the last 40%)
  2. The Fire Wish by Amber Lough
  3. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
  4. The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
  5. Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson
  6. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

Bout of Books 14

After coming out of the #5books7days crunch, I think I’m going to set my goal for this one pretty low – 3 books sounds good!


Books read:

  1. Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
  2. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
  3. Invaded by Melissa Landers

Books I want to read in August

HP and sorcerers stone invaded melissa landers praying for rain kristoff the darkest part of the forest empire of night armstrong the replaced derting until the beginning plum willowgrove peacock

I pre-pulled a few of these books from my TBR jar for August – Harry Potter, Praying for Rain, and “a book with faeries” (which I chose TDPotF for).

  1. I’ve only participated in one other readathon, but I would love to do another! 5 books in seven days would be cramming BUT it sounds like a lot of fun! I just might try it! Hope you enjoy all your books this month. :)
