Readathon Updates #Tropeathon ~ 11/5/21

Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a great week. I feel like I’ve had a very productive one. I set up a FB group this week for people to buy, sell, and trade books and bookish items – Continental U.S. only (Sorry!), so if any of you are interested, here’s the site ~ https://www.facebook.com/groups/alisbooks4u. I am just getting it set up, so I don’t have a ton of posts up yet, nor have I sent out many invites yet.

Now let’s see what progress I made this week ~

Halloween Readathon

  • Classic Lit Spooky Read ~ The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe
  • A Book in a Series ~ The Hand on the Wall by Maureen Johnson
  • A Book That’s Also a Movie ~ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
  • A Book w/ Fall Vibes But No Spook ~ Crying Wolf by Rochelle Paige
  • Spin Off or Retelling of a Classic Spooky Story ~ Of Beast and Beauty by Chanda Hahn

  • A Nonfiction Spooky Read ~ The Penguin Book of Witches by Katherine Howe
  • A Book That Mentions Halloween ~ The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling
  • A Book w/ a Murder ~ The Guest List by Lucy Foley
  • A Book w/ Mythical Creatures ~ Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim

I didn’t pull off any more bingos, but I completed over half the board. Considering my goal was one bingo, this was definitely a win and a lot of fun!!

I didn’t make any more progress this week, but I still feel good about what I read for this one. I completed my goal of one bingo and added in some extras, too!

The Royal Readathon: Fairies

Takes Place All November

  • Reread a Book
  • Read a Book with a Beautiful Cover
  • Read a Book with a Fixer Upper ~ Once Upon a Broken Heart by Stephanie Garber
  • Read a Book with a Disagreement
  • Read a Book with a Found Family

One prompt down, and five more to go!

Historathon 2.5

Takes Place November 1st – November 10th

  • Read a Book about Transportation
  • Read a Book with 3 Words in the Title ~ War is Kind by Stephen Crane
  • Read a Book That You Feel Like You’re the Last Person to Read
  • Read a Middle Grade Historical Fiction

One prompt down, so that’s already a win for me. This readathon is only taking place over ten days, so my goal was one prompt. Let’s see if I can tackle another one.

I’m also participating in Nonfiction November, but I don’t yet have any books read for this one.

Are you participating in any fun readathons, challenges, readalongs, etc. in November or December?

Happy Reading,

Alison
