I may have bitten off more than I can chew.
This month, I want to participate in two challenges:
- ARC August, where you try and trim down your TBR and read as many ARCs as you can (more info here)
- The Disney-readathon, where you pick a team and try to complete challenges to earn points (more info here)
I know that I won’t be able to reach all my goals, but I’m going to spend the next month trying.
Disney is kinda my brand (outside of books, that is). I’m known at work as the girl who always wears Disney dresses, I cosplay as Disney Princesses, I’m a Disney Vacation Club Member and I visit Disney World almost every year, and my house was literally designed after Disney.
Needless to say, I was excited to do this Disney-A-Thon.
Especially because I was going to Disney this month.
However, I’m awful at sticking to TBRs, and readathons scare me, so I knew this would definitely be a challenge. Not to mention, I set up pretty high goals for myself for the month.
If you haven’t seen my Disney-A-Thon TBR, here’s a link to catch up!
Read more to see if I actually managed to reach those goals, or if I crumbled under pressure!
I had a busy month is August, but despite that, I managed to read 10 books! I focused a lot on the Disney-A-Thon in August, (I even did some of my reading is Disney World!), so while I’ll talk about some of my favorites now, I’ll be posting a full Disney-A-Thon wrap up soon!
I started August off strong, but I definitely fell behind on my goals. That said, I’m still happy to have read 10 books. Hopefully I’ll keep the momentum going in September!

I think I finally did it. I think I beat my reading slump.
It only took me… five months. But I did it!!!
July was a surprisingly good month for me. At this point, I had given up all hope and thought that I would never regain the motivation to read like I had, but then came The Reading Rush.
Readathons scare me. A lot. So I had never done one before. I never liked the idea of pushing myself to read as much as possible, because I thought it would inevitably cause me to burn myself out.
Looks like I was wrong.

I used to be terrified of readathons. Making a strict TBR and sticking to it had always intimidated me, and honestly, it still does. But then I joined the Reading Rush last month, and actually had a really good time (even though I didn’t read all 7 books). So now, I’m hoping to do the same thing with the Disney-A-Thon.
I mean, Disney kinda is the one true love of my life, so I feel like I have to.
If you haven’t heard of the Disney-A-Thon, it’s a readathon that takes place over the month of August. You pick a team (go team Tangled!), and complete challenges to earn points. Each team has their own list of challenges, but once you finish those, you can do other team’s challenges.
If you want more info, check out the Disney-A-Thon on twitter (@disneyreadathon)!
Also, if you’re doing the Disney-A-Thon, I created a spreadsheet that can help you organize your TBR and keep track of your points.
[In case twitter isn’t working- here’s a link to the spreadsheet]
Okay, enough background info, let’s get started talking about my TBR!
