Sign Up: Fantasy Favourites Read-a-thon!

Hey everyone!

Welcome to the sign up post for the Fantasy Favourites Read-a-thon! It’s going to be hosted here and also over @ Bookshelf Reflections with Inge and Karolina. So, keep reading to hear what it’s all about.

 
Who can join in? YOU of course! Any blogger and reader is welcome to join us. Just link up your sign up post and announce you will join in below in the linky.

When? This is all going down 23rd – 30th of March 2015! There will be an introductory post on the 16th if you choose to join in for that! You can join in whenever you want, even if we are halfway through the read-a-thon itself as well.

What is gonna happen? Here’s how it goes! In the week you have you can read any book from any genre. Not simply fantasy books! (Although you will be pretty awesome if you do read fantasy books.) And you can be doubly as awesome if you read one of the selected series/books.

Throughout the read-a-thon there will be challenges which you can choose to do! You don’t have to join in with them all, but can select which ones you want to try and join in with. There will be a few based on the selected books and series, and some more general ones as well.

Oh, and don’t forget to count the number of pages you read and which books you get through!

25th – Casting List Mayhem and Twitter Wars
26th – Dating Profiles Challenge
27th – They Said What?
28th – It's All About the Tricky Ones

  4. I have a feeling that this is going to be fun. :)
    I've always wanted something or someone to prod me into reading again. I've started 3 books this year and haven't finished one yet. Grrr.

    Thanks for this initiative, my lovely ladies. You rock!

  7. This is a great read-a-thon Olivia! I would love to participate so I have to see how I'm doing during that week and I might just re-read Harry Potter even though I only do that during Christmas. Maybe this is a sign to start reading The Lunar Chronicles? We'll see ^^

  14. How fun!!! I can't wait to read what everyone has to say. I have three four more books to read by the end of the month to give my author friends the publicity I want to give to thank them for supporting me when my book released. Hopefully in a future month.

  17. Hi, I'm going to join this, too, but I can't participate all of the days, because I have to write some exams. Still have to make a page though. Will do that later this week.

    Also I nominated you for the "Very Inspiring Blogger" Award. Check out my post here. Hope you enjoy doing this, too. :)

    1. It doesn't matter if you can't participate for all the days, exams should go first. As long as you have fun when you can. Also, thank you for the nomination, I will be sure to go check out the post ;)

  18. It's sad I've only just seen this as I should probably sign up. I'm currently making my way through the Lux series and have just got through books one and two, with the other three ready and waiting to be read.
