The Excuse to Read read-a-thon is all about enjoying your books and not feeling guilty about taking a week off from books you "have" to read. It will run from July 28th to August 4th!
If you want to join in on the fun, here's the full breakdown of the event:
(day one)--Reading List: Show off your TBR pile! Share the books you've chosen to read over the course of the week. You can list why you chose them, talk about how beautiful their covers are, squee over how many of them were on sale, state if they're ARCs, whatever you want!
(day one) through (day seven): Update your progress. You can do daily updates, one every couple of days... whatever works! The categories below are what we're going with (use as little or as many as you like!) and can either be shared every post, or at the very end in your windup post on . Remember, you don't have to have a blog for the read-a-thon. You can post on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, wherever you want!
(day eight)--Windup Post: Total stats! Party hats! Hooray! You read more books! *throws confetti* Today is a day for posting your overall reading summary. Here's where you add up total books and/or pages read so we can celebrate! This is also when you share the deets on:
* Cover Love (all-time favorite cover)
* Fun Find (book you're most glad you picked up)
* Author Love (author you're definitely going to read more of)
* Favorite Quote (this can be for each book or all-time favorite quote)
* Old Geezer (book you've been meaning to read the longest)
* Series Stats (if you completed a series, make sure to share that!)
(The suggestions above are the general idea, but *do* make it your own!)
There you have it! So for this whole stress-free reading week (woot!) I'll be reading:
Great choices, right!? I'm excited to finally read these beauties because I'm tired of not being on the loop when it comes to these series. I'll first start off with The Orphan Queen and then I'll decide if I should continue with Alienated or Cinder. I seriously hope I end up loving and finishing all three. ;)
