1st Summer 12 Hour Readathon!

The First 12 Hour Summer Readathon!!

Today, I'm doing a personal readathon (along with a friend) and I'll be reading for 12 hours today!!! I'm going to try to get through four books, maybe five if I can speed read!!! I plan on doing a bunch of 12 hour readathons this summer, while I'm vacationing and I don't have to worry about homework or anything like that, so I'm looking forward to spending my days reading!! This is just the first of many readathons to come!

What I'll be reading: 
1. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo - I've been reading a couple books at a time, so it's time for me to finally get to this one! (I've only managed to get through one or two pages at a time!!!)
2. Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne - I really need to read this one before the signing on the 7th, so I'm going to get it done now!!
3. Black City by Elizabeth Richards - I'm borrowing this from a friend so I need to get to it ASAP! Super excited!!!
4. Thief's Covenant by Ari Marmell - I have an ARC of the second book (which comes out June 26th!) so I need to get through these!!
5. Point of Origin by Amanda Havard - The blog tour for this one is coming up, and I'll have a review up on June 7th!

I'll be posting updates on Facebook, as well as Twitter, and if anyone wants to join in feel free to grab the banner and make your own post! Start whenever you want in the day, and take breaks whenever you feel like it :) If you're doing a mini readathon along with me, make sure to leave your goals in a comment! 


  1. Wow, that's some challenge. I don't think I could even get through two books in twelve hours. Good luck!

    1. Hahaha I probably won't be able to get through more than 3, but I have high hopes for myself!!!!

  2. So jealous you get to read for 12 hours today! Especially while I'm stuck at work ;) it's a great idea to do one though!

    I LOVE the Widdershins books! They are so incredible and totally blew my mind. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did (False Covenant was actually released early in some places, I just noticed that so I posted my review today to go along with it)

    Good luck!

    1. Ohhh I'm glad to hear they're good!! I'm really looking forward to reading both, I LOVE YA sci fi so I'm definitely looking forward to it :D

  3. Those are sooo many awesome books! I'm super jealous ahhh!! I read so much last week my eyes are feeling crossed. Otherwise I'd totally join you lol

    1. Hahahah I haven't read much lately and I'm not liking it!!! I need to get a bunch of reading done ASAP!

  4. I wish you the best of luck with your goals. I hope you can get through most, if not all, of these books! I thought of doing a readathon with a couple of my friends as well this summer. I think it would be fun.


  5. I love the idea of doing personal mini-readathons! Although, I could probably never read 5 books in only 12 hours. Kudos to you for reading that much [or, at least planning to! =)]. Good luck, and have fun! =)

  6. SHADOW AND BONE HAS MY HEART. <3 Oh my goodness, I absolutely LOVED that book and I really hope you do too, Anna! I think it's one of my favourites of the entire year because of the originality & overall amazingness of it. But mostly, you're so lucky that you could have 12 hours of awesome reading! If only I didn't have so much homework, I'd love to be right there with you, reading for twelve hours in one day :')

    I hope you have a blast and enjoy all of your books, Anna! You've got a bunch of good ones in your pile, so I think you will! ;) <3

  7. Awesome!! Good luck! I wish I could have 12 hours uninterrupted to read, but with a toddler that is impossible. Can't wait to hear how you do.

  8. I want to spend my days reading! *hides jealousy* We missed you at the signing. :(

  9. My goal is to read 4 books!

    My post:

  10. I hope you got lots of reading done! And all those books sound fantastic!

  11. I hope you get through what you want to get through! I know I could NEVER do that. I'm a slow reader, but I love to really take my time with books :). Good luck to you! Can't wait to see how many you got through!
