I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS YOU GUYS. I’m going to admit, I’m pretty behind on ARC August. Yay procrastination! I was hoping for a readathon to use as an excuse to catch up on some reading, so this one came at the perfect time!

The last readathon I did was #makemereadit and I managed to read just over 1,500 pages. So, I’m going to aim for that again!


  • Finish current reads (Metaltown, Furthermore)
  • Read 2-4 more books OR 1,500 2,000 pages total
  • Read a little bit every day


I’ll keep my progress updated daily here!


Today’s goals:

  • Finish Metaltown (on pg. 88/384)
  • Finish Furthermore (on pg. 58/393) 

Currently reading: Metaltown, Furthermore

Pages read today: 305
Time spent reading today: 3 hours, 30 min
Books completed today: Metaltown

Today’s notes: Sadly I didn’t get as much reading as I’d hoped to get done since this was my day off, but I ended up getting a migraine early in the day that ruined my plans :(


Today’s goals:

  • Finish Furthermore (on pg. 67/393)
  • Start Hawkweed Prophecy 

Currently reading: Furthermore, The Hawkweed Prophecy

Pages read today: 470
Time spent reading today: 4 hours
Books completed today: Furthermore


Today’s goals:

  • Finish Hawkweed Prophecy (on pg. 144/364)
  • Make a dent in Gemina 

Currently reading: The Hawkweed Prophecy (DNF @ pg 154), Gemina

Pages read today: 212
Time spent reading today: 2 hours, 5 min
Books completed today: none, DNFed Hawkweed Prophecy

Today’s notes: The brutal cat mutilation in The Hawkweed Prophecy caused a pretty bad setback for me today. I waffled a lot over whether or not to pick it back up again, as I was enjoying it in the beginning, but every time I tried I got upset all over again. I wasted a lot of time procrastinating about it so now I won’t finish a book today like I had hoped to :(


Today’s goal:

  • Read at least 300 pages of Gemina (on pg. 200/659) 

Currently reading: Gemina, Disruption

Pages read today: 459

Today’s goal:

  • Read at least 200 pages of Disruption 

Currently reading: Disruption

Pages read today: 216
Time spent reading today: 2 hours, 15 min
Books completed today: none

Today’s notes: I was kinda hoping to finish Disruption today, since I got home fairly early from work, but I was in seriously hardcore procrastination mode and wasted hours of time on the internet >.>


Today’s goal:

  • Finish Disruption (on pg 216/416) 

Currently reading: Disruption

Pages read today: 200
