September Read-a-Thon(s) (Tackle Your TBR & treesofreverie)

Read-a-thons are fun, I like read-a-thons (you've probably realized this if you've seen, really, anything of my blog) and I said in my September TBR that I didn't think there were any read-a-thons going on. And then I found like all of them? 

And I didn't want to make separate posts for everything, but I split them into two posts,* because that would be a lot of posts and annoying if you don't care about read-a-thons. So theres the Tackle Your TBR read-a-thon from September 8th to September 20th and the treesofreverie read-a-thon from September 14th to September 28th. Go to the treeofreverie announcement post to find out out to officially sign up. I don't think you have to officially sign up, but it's not too complicated. 

Since Tackle Your TBR actually starts, well, tomorrow as this is going up - then I feel like I can actually even try and make up a possible list of books I might read, though I have honestly no idea what I'm going to be reading.
  • The Girl of Fire and Thorn by Rae Carson (I really want to read this, and I splurged for the rest of the series, so I could binge read the whole thing)
  • Percy Jackson's Greek Gods by Rick Riordan (This book is huge - in size and it's like 300 pages, but I want to at least start it next week).
  • The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
  • Saint City Sinner by Lilith Saintcrow (I'd like to eventually freaking finish this book - also The Queen of the Tearling).
  • Something Sanderson - I just read Mistborn, I need more (I haven't read The Alloy of Law, maybe that?)
And as for what I'd like to get done for this read-a-thon, I'm currently in a really reading mood, but also I haven't gotten to play a lot of the Sims 4. So these two overlap a little - so I'm going to do the first part of the Tackle Your TBR in one post, and then when these two start to overlap, a separate post, a wrap-up for Tackle, and then finishing out with trees. Did that make sense? I think so (if you're confused, I'm sorry, but I can try and make it better if you want?)

If you're participating in any of these read-a-thons - let me know with a link to your blog so I can see what you're reading/up to!

*I divided the two posts into two groups. This one is the shorter read-a-thons - while the other one is The Raven Cycle read-a-long and R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril IX. My post about them.


  1. Yup, definitely joining in. :) It's been fun and I'm just blog hopping then hitting the books again. :) Here's my Sign up Post.

  2. Great list! The Girl of Fire and Thorns - That series ends so well! The Raven Boys - Lots of language but so, so good! And I need to read Mistborn. He wrote Steelheart, which was really good. Thanks for participating!

    1. I really need to get to Girl of Fire and Thorn soon, I just keep hearing good things.

      And I'd really recommend anything Sanderson writes, I've only got a few books left. And thanks for hosting! :)
