Jazzy June Announcement + TBR

It’s readathon time (again), lovelies!

This is my fourth post today! Whaaaat? I know you’re wondering if an impostor has taken over my blog, but I can assure that this is not the case. Now that we’ve gotten that cleared up, let’s move on. Like last time, I’ll go over all the details in a second, but if you want to look at the original announcement instead of mine, you can find it on the Books and Munches site (this post in particular).

Jazzy June

Alright, here are the deets —

dates: June 1 – June 30
rules: Jazzy June is all about re-reading books, whether it be because you loved them or you’re just getting ready to continue with the series. All you have to do is write up a blog post announcing that you’re joining the readathon, and then start re-reading! If you’re using social media, use the hashtag #JazzyJune.

This readathon is right up my alley, because my favorite thing to do is re-read books. Seriously, if I’m out in public, I’m probably carrying a book I’ve read a thousand times (likely Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce, if I’m being honest). Something about re-reading makes me feel so comforted and relaxed. Here are some books that I might choose from —

Well, that’s all I’ve got for today, so I’ll see you Monday. Make sure to let me know if you’re participating in this readathon. Maybe we could even buddy-read something this month!

Sci-Fi Summer Announcement + TBR

It’s readathon time, lovelies!

I’ll go over all the details in a second, but if you want to look at the original announcement instead of mine, you can find it on the Seasons of Reading blog (this post in particular). Don’t forget to sign up while you’re there!

Alright, here are the deets —

dates: June 1, 12:00AM CDT – June 14, 11:59PM CDT
rules: Read only science fiction and fantasy throughout the duration of the readathon, and use the hashtag #SciFiJune to participate on social media.

That was short and sweet, wasn’t it? It seems like a pretty low-key, relaxing readathon. I’ll probably be reading fantasy for the most part, just because I don’t have nearly as much science fiction sitting unread on my shelves. Here are some books that I might choose from, but, ya know, we’ll see —

If you’re unsure of what time the readathon ends for you, there is a handy-dandy time zone converter on their blog. Also, come hang out with us all in the Facebook group! I’ll be posting pictures there throughout the readathon.

Okay, friendos — I’ll see you again later with my last post of the day (four posts per day will definitely not be a regular thing, so enjoy it while it lasts), which is about another readathon that I’m participating in that also starts today.


June Reading Goals

Hi, lovelies.

It’s my first month back — and it’s really great to see you again! If you’re new here, my name is Chelsea, and I’m probably the most inconsistent blogger you will ever meet. I actually didn’t plan on coming back so soon, but I kept getting emails that said “so-and-so subscribed to your blog,” which made me realize exactly how much I missed you guys.

So, let’s just get into it.

June is going to be a busy reading month. I have a lot of goals that I’d like to accomplish by the end of summer, which include novels that I want to read for fun, but also some things that I need to read for work/university. I’ll be working through a GRE prep book during my summer break, so I’m including that in my TBR pile, which includes —

There is one new-to-me author on my list this month, which, since I spend most of my time reading books by authors I’ve liked previously, is very exciting — I’ve wanted to read Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard for a while, but I just haven’t been able to prioritize it until now. I’ve heard mixed reviews, but I’m hoping I’ll enjoy it more than most of my friends.

I’ve only read one book by Holly Black so far (The Coldest Girl in Coldtown), and I only rated it 3 stars. However, after reading the synopsis of this book, I think I’ll like The Darkest Part of the Forest.

I really should reread Passenger by Alexandra Bracken before starting Wayfarer, just because it’s been over two years since I started the series. Luckily, one of the readathons I’m planning to participate in this month has a “read a duology” challenge, so I’m planning to spend that week focusing on this series.

I’ve not heard many positive things about A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas, which upsets me because I’ve been anticipating this book since it was announced. Cross your fingers for me, though, because I’m still hoping that I love it. Before getting to this installment, I need to finish my current read-through of the series — I’m about to start A Court of Wings and Ruin.

Magic Steps will be a re-read for me, as are all books by Tamora Pierce. I’m reading through all of her books set in Emelan first, and then will be moving on to Tortall. In case you were wondering, yes, I start back at the beginning as soon as I finish. Her books will never get old.

What are some of your goals for the month? Let me know in the comments, and I’ll see you again later today for TWO more posts, both readathon-related!
