May AYearAThon & RYBSAT Round 8

2016ayearathon

AYearAThon is a read a thon that happens each month throughout the year with different themes. You can find the goodreads group here. RYBSAT happens a couple of times throughout the year and is where you pick a spot on your shelf and read from that point onwards. You can find the event at its twitter here.

Hello everyone! I feel like it has been forever since I was partaking in AYearThon because of studies and I thought May’s (2nd-8th) Finish/Catch Up would be a good theme to join in again. So many things I need to finish! But then I also have RYBSAT at the same time (1st-8th) so I had to find a spot on my shelf that filled both ideas. This is what I came up with:

shelf

I am starting from Child of the Prophecy by Juliet Marillier and then working my way down and across. I hope to at least finish a couple of the books, but I still have assignments to do even though my major one has been handed in so I don’t want to be to ambitious.

Now I will be cheating a little for RYBSAT as I am nearly done with Soundless by Richelle Mead so I intend on finishing (and hopefully have finished it by the time this post is published) on the first day and then going to my official starting point and reading.

Now because RYBSAT seems to be pretty twitter based, I will be doing regular updates about it on my twitter account @ThWrittenWord, and then I will be doing updates every couple of days on here about both read a thons. Hope you guys join in and have fun!

Welcome to 2016 everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year. I am not actually at home for most the week so I am going to keep this first one very relaxed. The first theme for the year runs from the 4th-10th and is:

I love it when we get themes like this one because that means that my TBR is going to get smaller haha

I am at the point with these read-a-thons that if I smash out 4 books I feel pretty good about it. I don’t think I will be doing next month since the theme doesn’t interest me.

Banned Books

Now I don’t own that many books that have been banned, so during this week I will actually have to go out and get some that will fit, so hold my TBR to a grain of salt because I have no idea what I am going to read. I missed last month because I was way too busy to participate and the October theme doesn’t interest me that much so I wont be participating in it. So this month is mostly just to I am actually participating in a read-a-thon. Anyway, on with the books:

This month was a bit of a flop but oh well. I got a few books done and that is all that matters. I think 4 a week is an achievement, even if one of them was already half read ;)

Finish/Catch Up on a Series

I am SOO eager for this months theme. There are a number of books I want to read that I have been saving for this months theme. I know at least I am not going to read at least one day during this week because its my mothers birthday, but I am hoping I can at least keep up the four book streak I have been on for the last couple of read-a-thons. The books I hope to finish are:
