3rd Annual Beat The Heat Readathon!

So I just heard about this readathon and I really wanted to participate! I love readathons and the fact that they motivate me to read so much more during them. I’ve never participated in this one before but I’ve heard great things about this readathon.

I’m a little late but oh well ๐Ÿ˜›

So here’s the rules

  • The Beat the Heat Readathon runs from August 24th at 12:00 AM to September 6th at 11:59 PM. What does this readathon entail, you ask? Well, read as much or as little as you want โ€“ the main point is to READ! You set your own goal, and for two weeks you read as many books as you can/want to reach your goal!
  • There will be mini-challenges throughout the Readathon for participants, along with a grand prize giveaway at the end!
  • Sign up here at Novel Heartbeat or over atย Phantasmic Reads. You may join whenever you like, but to be eligible for our grand prize giveaway, you must sign up by August 28th.
  • To join, all you have to do is make a sign-up post โ€“ even if itโ€™s just a โ€œLetโ€™s do this!โ€ thing โ€“ and add your post URL to the linky below! You can put your goals and progress (will be required for the final giveaway) in your sign-up post, or you can make it separate. Totally up to you! (You are welcome to use the template we provide in the kick-off post as well.)
  • In order to enter for the grand prize, you must have a post to keep track of your progress so we can see that you participated.
  • Follow along on Twitter and share your progress with the hashtag #BtHReadathon!

I just participated in B.O.B 14 here last week and I had a lot of fun and pushed my self and ended up reading 10 books!

Since this readathon is 2 weeks long instead of 1 I’m unsure what my goals should be. I’m think that these will work for me.

  • Read 8 books
  • Use the Hashtag and chat on Twitter
  • Visit some of the blogs participating
  • Participate in at least 1 mini challenge
  • Write the reviews for my Netgalley books (only 2)

Here’s some of the books I might read

Woah! Okay so that is all the books I have to read on me. Two are my last netgalley books and the other 8 are books from the library! I think I can mange reading all of these in two weeks. But I picked 2 extras incase I can mangae more than the 8 I planned.

Two of these are actually audiobook. Moby Dick and Ready Player One. I’m about 25% through Moby and I just started the other a little while a go but its only 15 1/2 hours so I think I can manage it this readathon.

  1. This is cool! I love readathons that are longer than a week. I tried to do Bout of Books, but my week was way too busy. I’m totally going to try to participate in this one. Good luck!


  2. THE WRATH AND THE DAWN IS AMAZING. I hope you end up loving it just as much as I did. And also I am very excited for you to read ACOTAR and The Assassins Blade. I’m about halfway through The Assassins Blade and of course it is amazing.
    Good luck and have fun reading! ๐Ÿ˜„ xoxo ๐Ÿ’‹


    1. I did really like The Wrath and the Dawn it was really good! I’m currently reading The Assassins Blade just started it I’m really excited! I’ve heard lots of good things about ACOTAR I’m really excited to get my hands on it.
      Thank you!!!
