That’s all folks!
I have completed the #whatsinthebox18 week long readathon. It was such a fun readathon, and I really did challenge myself to read more in a week than I normally would.
The original goal was 4 reads, and I am pleased to announce that I read 3.5 books! I definitely swapped out a monster length book for a shorter, more manageable one for my last reading sprint. (I will be discussing each of these reads in my live wrap up on Instagram that will take place in approximately 30 minutes.)
I definitely will participate in this readathon again. And hopefully by then I will have a couple more connections in the #bookstagram community that I will feel more comfortable in participating in the giveaway events (I felt weird just ‘making new friends,’ and then tagging them tbh).
But no complaints on not wining anything, really. I went into this with the mindset of wanting to finish some BOTM books that have been sorely neglected, and I did just that! I also wanted to meet and connect with some more people in the #bookstagram community, and I was successful in that also.
So all in all, it was a great experience! So if you’re looking to break into the bookish community on Instagram, or just want another week long readathon, participate in this one!
Seriously, wherethereadergrows & book.happy were AMAZINGLY generous hosts for this readathon. They were super active, and encouraging to everyone, even to a newb like me. And you don’t always have that in readathons, so I really felt welcomed in and included. Thank you for all your hard work ladies!
So now that I have finished up the following reads, what is next for reorganized-reading? Well, I am going to be doing another Best Friend Book Club read with my Belgian Bestie. A classic that has been on both of our TBR’s forever: The Book Thief!
I know, how behind the times are we on this one? It came out ages ago, right? But anyway, we’re both really excited to have another read to experience with one another. And also, there will be two giveaways this time! One when we meet the halfway mark, and the other when we sprint to the end. Stay tuned for more details on my Twitter & Instagram accounts!
And I will also be announcing my last Throwback Thursday Classic this coming Thursday, but I need your help in deciding which read to go with! Stay tuned as I will announce via Twitter & Instagram two options for you to choose from.
Thanks again to everyone who has made my reading experience so enjoyable thus far! I really am grateful to have had the chance to connect with some amazing individuals!
Until next time bookworms!
