2014 Beat the Heat Readathon!



Beat the Heat Readathon is hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat  and Reanna @ Phantasmic Reads it runs from August 11th until September 1st. I have seen readathons all over since I started blogging and always wanted to participate in one! If you are looking for more information or want to sign up check out Jessi's or Reanna's blog! I (Amber) will be participating in this readathon!


RULES:

  • The Beat the Heat Readathon runs from August 11th to September 1st. What does this readathon entail, you ask? Well, read as much or as little as you want – the main point is to READ! You set your own goal, and for three weeks you read as many books as you can/want to reach your goal!
  • There will be mini-challenges throughout the Readathon for participants, along with a grand prize giveaway at the end!
  • Sign up here at Novel Heartbeat or over at Phantasmic Reads. You may join whenever you like, but to be eligible for our grand prize giveaway, you must sign up by August 24th.
  • To join, all you have to do is make a sign-up post – even if it’s just a “Let’s do this!” thing – and add your post URL to the linky below! You can put your goals and progress (will be required for the final giveaway) in your sign-up post, or you can make it separate. Totally up to you! (You are welcome to use the template we provide as well.)
  • In order to enter for the grand prize, you must have a post to keep track of your progress so we can see that you participated.
GOAL:

My goal is to have completed 15 books during the readathon!
(I my goal also is to review half of them and save the other half for weeks I am busy and can't get a review up!)

  1. I loved Scarlet! Are you going to read Cress too during the RAT? That's my favorite. I have Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo on audio but haven't read it yet. Hopefully soon. Good luck!

    1. Thank you! I hope I can read Cress. I just got approved for some September ARCs so I am going to read a few of those before I go back to Cress. Hopefully I can though, I am really excited for it!
