SapphicAThon Sign-Up/ TBR


“What is the SapphicAThon, you may be asking? It’s a readathon I created that focusses on reading f/f romances! It runs for two weeks and goes from 12 am your time 14th to 11:59 your time 28th December.”

There’s all the information in the sign-up post, here.

Have you read any of these? Any you’d particularly recommend (or not), or have I got any down for the wrong category? Please let me know! 🙂




I know, I know! I’ve already signed up for one readathon this month (hosted by Wonderless Reviews, you can read my TBR for that here) and I’m prepping for NaNoWriMo next month, and I’ve hit a bit of a reading slump. But this one sounds amazing, so I’ve decided to try this one too.

#TheReadingQuest Round Up

Read at Midnight‘s #TheReadingQuest Challenge finishes today. It’s been so much fun! Aentee’s challenges always have such a fun points or challenge system to them, I look forward to every one that she organises. Here’s all the books I manged to finish over the challenge, there’s been some great books (and a few meh ones…) and it’s encouraged me to pick up a couple which have been on my ‘to read list’ for a while. What I actually read changed a little from my TBR for this challenge, but I’ve still got some awesome sounding books left over, so I’m just going to keep going until I finish the board (7 left!) even though the challenge is officially over.


Read.Sleep.Repeat is running the 5th ARC August reading challenge. You can see the sign-up post, here. My Netgalley rating’s not too bad — 78% — but I’ve got 9 books to read, so I’d like to get over that magical 80% this month… As long as I don’t request more again. XD

Have you read any of these books? Are you doing ARC August? What are your goals if you are?

All bar one! XD

I was planning to read The Handmaid’s Tale for the Adapted to TV/movie square but I just didn’t have the time. I’ve got it sitting out on my bedside table though cause I really want to read it before I watch the series, so it should end up on the next bingo sheet somewhere.
