Wrap Ups & My August TBR (caitsbooks.com)

July Favorites, Reading Rush Wrap Up, + My August TBR!

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.

My Disney-A-Thon TBR + A Useful Spreadsheet

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!
