I’m so thrilled to be participating in this readathon! I did so horrible last year on reading and I want to start the year off right! It’s also been a really long time since I did a proper readathon. There was one on Instagram back in December while I was on vacation, but I didn’t get much reading in sadly.

Goals

  • Finish current read (Heart of Iron) 
  • Read 1-2 more books OR 1,000 pages total 
  • Read a little bit every day 

Books I want to read


These are the two I want to read for sure! If I’m able to read more than that, I’ll pull from my TBR jar :D

Progress

I’ll keep my progress updated daily here!
